How it works....

Once we have met with our client and signed the contract for a sale, we immediately get ready for the big day. We come to the site and set up lots of tables. Then we begin to remove everything from cabinets, drawers and shelves. Everything is sorted and organized. Towels are placed with their mates, dishes counted and glasses lined up. Sometimes we rearrange the furniture for the best exposure possible. Once everything is displayed we begin to price. Because we have many years of experience in pricing, and an extensive knowledge of the current market value of secondary market goods, most items are priced quickly. Valuables such as jewelry, artwork, vehicles, rugs and pottery are researched and priced accordingly. We have a network of experts we rely on to assist in the evaluation of these goods. In addition, Leo is very experienced in identifying and evaluating firearms. He has many years of experience and an extensive list of expert resources, as well as a library of reference materials.

As soon as the household property is priced and ready for the sale we take lots of photos. Description of the sale, directions, dates and photos are loaded onto the website. We place a newspaper ad and send out emails to our regular customers, numbering close to 2000!

On sale day we put out professional signs in strategic outside locations, turn on all the lights and open the doors.

Anything that has not sold will be donated to Animal Humane or Albuquerque Cat Action Team. These organizations are reliable and work hard to make the animal's lives easier. They provide donation receipts which we forward to our client, along with the keys and final proceeds of the sale.

Should you have any questions about our sales or would like to make an appointment for a free consultation, we would be pleased to talk with you. Please contact us at 883-3032 or 688-3000.

We are licensed, bonded and insured!
