    Terry was wonderful to work with from the very first call to the completion of a very successful sale and the clean out of the house. She made a seemingly overwhelming task close to effortless as we prepared for an out of state move.

    Albany and Hudson Valley Estate Sales
    I want to thank Tom, Darlene and Heather Gambino for making a tryi and difficult experience (almost) enjoyable.  They were responsive and patient throughout and showed a high degree of profesionalism. They went to extrodinary lengths to publicize the event with many photographs of the sale items placed on the web.They even sold a small travel clock to a buyer in Japan at an impressive price. They cleaned the house thoroughly after the sale, leaving it spotless for the new owner. Perhaps best of all, we all made some money on the sale.

    SMOOTHLY! From start to finish. Laurie and Neil arrived for the initial walk-through assessment of the things I wanted to sell, they prepared a detailed contract stating all the conditions and were explicit in what they would do. They came in two days before the sale date and staged the items attractively. They already had made contacts among their previous customers, some of whom came before the actual sale date to purchase specific items. Advertising, both electronic and print, was widespread and done timely. On sale day, they arrived early and got the "early birds" organized with staff persons they'd hired for the day. Due to the size/quantities of the sale, they brought in a couple of extra people. During the sale, they re-staged the items to keep the customers interested throughout the day. The best part was the energy and enthusiasm of Laurie and Neal: they were everywhere, encouraging customers, collecting fees, loading vehicles, etc., etc. I was impressed by the efficiency of the sale process. At the end, they reconciled the receipts, and I was presented with a check within a couple of days.

    House of Rose Antiques
    Three days before the sale we noticed no one had been at the house and prices we found on items were marked like a "flea market" was taking place in our home. I called the owner Nancy Toomer and told her that we had a problem with many items. At this point she became agitated and told me that all the pricing is left to her, that I don't understand. Knowing what some of the Antiques were I questioned again and told her I was raising prices myself and expected her to acknowledge that. I had to remind her that I HIRED HER and that she worked for me. Perhaps where there is an Estate that there is no family etc... she can get away with giving items away, I don't know, but we weren't going to have that. She also told me that if folks want to barter, that she did that on the spot! I exclaimed, why, it's a two day sale and the pricing is such that it should go. If items don't go, people who left bids should be called at that point. Her explanation was "that's too much work, you think I am going to come back here for people to pick up items?" I said yes! As it was two of the beds that sold (beneath the prices marked) I made arrangements for the people to pick up. I had told Nancy earlier that I would accommodate anyone who could not take the items on the day they were sold. House of Rose Antiques did NOT prepare per their agreement. All items were not priced and "bids" were accepted the minute the doors opened. All items were not priced and "bids" were accepted the minute the doors opened. We expected to review the bids after the sale completed, thus allowing for full price payments on as much as possible. We told the Nancy that we would meet them half way and that they could accept bids on the second day, but, the first day was a fiasco. We ad friends who attended the Sale and they said people were bartering left and right. Nancy called me on a couple larger items to see if I wanted to accept the bid and to see if folks could make arrangements to pick up. It was simply a nightmare and still is.I found out that she was working on another sale for the following week. Of course she could not give our sale what it needed because she had split my two weeks with another. Just terrible. I had to request the paperwork over and over again. She did not want to release it until the people came to pick up the beds. Perplexed I asked why, they were paid for and she wasn't going back to assist, why would you hold up payment? After many calls and emails I received paperwork from the Estate Sale. Well, was I surprised. The categorized sheet was all HAND WRITTEN - Confusing at best but so unprofessional! Nancy kept telling me she has been doing this for over 18 years and I shouldn't question her. I simply cannot believe in the 21st Century any business person would hand over a Hand Written account of sales. Mind you, we expected to clear $10,000.00 - Her TOTAL SALES showed $8929.25 AND her commission with expenses that she told us she would absorb (classifie

    Suzanne Medler Antiques
    She and her partner tagged items in my mother in law's home that we were selling. Items were tagged at close to $10,000, but after the sale and her commission, we received less than $2500.  Her explanation was that things don't sell for what they are priced at.  Also, took things not for sale (clothes, household items etc) and said she donated them to charity.  That was not in the contract.  We were told that everything we wanted gone would be, but had to have a dumpster ($350) to clean out what she could not make money on.  This was an emotional experience, since my mother-in-law was going to a nursing home and the money was going for her care.  I hope anyone else in this situation gets references and checks customer satisfaction before signing any contracts with people like this.

    We lost several weeks of time in our process to sell my father's house because of them backing out.
