Estate Services

Our estate professionals are qualified to assess the best disposition for an estate. Timing, travel expenses, labor, value and venue are all contributing factors when deciding how to best market a single item or an estate, and we share your interest in maximizing value, and will consult with you on your unique estate and private needs.

It may be in your best interest to sell all, or part, of the contents of a home on site, and there are several things to consider our team can present options to you during a phone consultation.

Depending on the scope and value of the estate, Estate Sales or Estate Auctions can be held at your location or in our auction facility in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. Catalogs and gallery views can be found on our website, and estate sales and auctions are announced in The Seattle Times and through other regional web sites and publications. We will work with you to determine which items, type of sale, and location would best serve your needs and return the best results the market will bear.

Items that are included in our premier Art & Antiques auctions are posted on Invaluable.com and eBay. People from all over the world can place bids or watch auctions live through these sites, bringing a global audience to your premier auction consignments. Please feel free to contact us. Our staff of specialists can help you consider options and find the best way to settle your estate.
