Estate & Content Sales

Moving, renovating, joining households, downsizing, or dispersing estates are just some of the many reasons why our clients choose Shirley Sort It to conduct their content sales.

Dispersing your belongings can be daunting.  We strive to keep this process as simple and stress-less as SSI checking it outpossible.  Working with families is our specialty.  From start to finish, we will be there to oversee and manage all of the preparations for the sale and on the day of the sale we will be there to maximize the cash for your contents.

Preparing for the Sale
Before the sale, we come to the house to review the home contents with you and separate the belongings into three main groups:  Keep, Sell, Give Away.  You have the final say on how the contents are disbursed.

We evaluate, inspect, and research each item, and when necessary we bring in experts to assist us in the appraisal of antiques, art, silver, coins, etc.  We price each item for the maximum Top Dollar return. We optimize pre-sale transactions by contacting our ever growing mailing list of buyers and antique dealers.

We advertise & promote the estate sale by posting digital photos on our website, and other online market places.  We place ads in local newspapers, emails to our mailing lists clients, and place outdoor signage in the neighborhood

For the sale, we rearrange furniture, display household items, and stage the home to get optimum dollar for the furnishings at current market price.
