Highlights from the 120+ MaxSold Estate and Downsizing sales in March 2016 ranges from our usual antiques, art and sterling to vintage, outdoor and even everyday items - quite the diversity! Some recent testimonials from our sellers before we get into the highlights...
"Settling my uncle's estate has been an emotional and challenging undertaking for me and my family.
Thankfully, MaxSold helped take the work and worry out
of distributing his belongings. They were willing to accommodate the logistics of the location and a few last-minute surprises without missing a beat. The pickup day crew were professional, organized, and really knew their business. It was a pleasure working with them, as well as the entire team behind the scenes." -Carol Trinker
"I was impressed about how smoothly the process went. What a relief
to know that this service is available! I wil be recommending Maxsold to others in need of the service. Thank you to all those involved." - Carl Luke
"Selling items privately is fraught with concerns - will the person show up, are they truly interested or "casing our house", will they argue over price. Not to mention the emotional roller coaster of dealing with "tire kickers"! MaxSold solves all these potential problems
, and sells far more (useful but used or open consumable) items that we would never have tried to sell. Everyone ends up with a better value than they could have achieved on their own." - Patti Priestman
