“Not only have I been going to Kathy’s sales for over a decade, I also contracted with her and her team to conduct my own estate sale when I was downsizing. Couldn’t have been easier, I got a very hefty check, and a great feeling that my things were going to new homes to be loved by someone else.
I highly recommended going to her sales, as well as using her services if you find yourself in need.”
“My mother couldn’t dispose of anything, and when she passed away, my brother and I inherited a lifetime’s worth of belongings to add to our own. Some years later we wanted to move but needed help with the clutter: enter Kathy’s Estate Sales. Kathy and her experienced staff prepared and priced our knickknacks, jewelry, and furniture, then organized and conducted the entire sales operation in a highly efficient and most satisfactory manner. Had we known how hassle-free it could be, we would have contacted Kathy’s Estate Sales years earlier! And talk about professionalism: Kathy never even flinched upon seeing I was still in possession of a broken 1960s Monkees hand puppet and a 1970s Farrah Fawcett poster.

“Thank you! You did an amazing job! You absolutely made a stressful, life-changing move into a hopeful, life-enriching experience. You can always count on my family’s whole-hearted endorsement for the kind, generous and professional service you provide.”

“We interviewed three estate sale companies, Kathy’s being the third. She was sensitive and compassionate to our grieving. On the morning of the sale, we left a house full of tagged items and returned to an almost-empty house. It was a huge relief. We would highly recommend Kathy and her staff to anyone who needs to liquidate for whatever reason.”

“Kathy’s Estate Sales did a wonderful job liquidating my parents’ 3,000+ sq. ft. house crammed full of their 50 years of collecting. Kathy not only dealt with the family attorney, but tactfully and delicately worked with all the siblings in our family to make everyone happy, and that’s quite an amazing accomplishment! I have referred Kathy’s Estate Sales to my friends and business associates and will continue to do so.”

How often does Kathy's Estate Sales have sales?
I do a sale almost every 2 weeks and have conducted over 700 sales. The whole process takes 2 weeks.
Step 1: We do what we call “set-up”, which is getting everything out and putting it on tables, draped with nice tablecloths. We also bring in bookshelves, jewelry cases, lamps, fans, whatever else we need to conduct the sale.
Step 2: We bring our mobile internet service and laptop and we price everything individually in the house.
Step 3: On Friday & Saturday, we conduct a 2-day sale.”
How do you market your sales?
We market photos and videos on the following platforms:
1. We e-mail our subscriber list (2,800+ subscribers!)
3. Facebook Business Page
5. YouTube Channel
How many people attend your sales on average?
We have about 500 to 600 people attend the average 2-day estate sale. I have 8 to 10 people (or more) man the sale, depending on the size of the house and the number of smaller items that we need to guard. I have people who help carry out larger items to help prevent any damage to your house.
What happens to everything that's left over?
When we are done, if the client wishes, we donate the remaining items and provide you with an itemized list of donations for your taxes.
We usually sell about 95% of what we start with. When we’re done, the house is completely empty, ready for you and/or your Realtor!
How by the book do you run your sales?
We charge sales tax. We take debit & credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover & AMEX), Apple Pay, Samsung Wallet, Zelle and/or cash for payment. I pay the client within 10 working days (one to two weeks).
How does your fee structure work?
As far as my fee goes, it depends on the value of the items that are available for sale. I would be happy to come out for a free consultation to estimate how much I think the items would sell for. My minimum charge is $3,000 to conduct a sale. Standard commission is 40%. Fees may vary.
