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.
MaxSold tackled several downsizing sales and estate sales in Colorado Springs (Colorado), West Vancouver and Surrey (British Columbia), and across New England, New York Tri State and Washington DC Metro. MaxSold followers had a laugh (and proceeded to bid competitively) when vintage mechanical size clowns (that talk and move!) went up for online auction with MaxSold along with the entire contents of a unique vintage business in Toronto.
