April 2015 Top Sellers on MaxSold Online Estate and Downsizing Sale

April was a thrill for all of us at MaxSold with memorable Estate Sale and Downsizing highlights across Canada and the US.

MaxSold followers enjoyed the Estate Sale Online Auction from a $1.5 Million dollar home (which was preserved like a Victorian time capsule). There is even a time lapse video of the tightly organized preview event.
