June 2016 MaxSold Estate and Downsizing Sale Highlights

June 2016 was an exciting month with a record number of 174 downsizing and estate sale online auctions, and a MaxSold launch in Seattle, Washington.

Our proven marketing plan was executed in Seattle with incredible results. Here are some pictures of the first time bidders from that auction.

MaxSold Estate Sale Pickup in Seattle

Here's a testimonial from Eva Dougherty of Smooth Transitions of Seattle LLC who used MaxSold for her client:

"The MaxSold online auction for my client in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle was very successful and exceeded expectations. The items in the auction were represented and sold in a professional manner which respected the owner’s care and love of them. The auction allowed both my client and potential buyers a comfortable experience that avoided crowds or maneuvering in a small space, potential bad weather, early morning lines and allowed people to bid high if they really wanted something and not just get lucky that their hands were the first to touch it. Art and more valuable collectibles were sold at fair market value due to MaxSold’s professional and extensive marketing resulting in a broader audience reach. It was also a fair way for inheritors to bid on items if more than one family member wanted it. An on-site estate sale would not have provided the seller or buyers with the same benefits, experience or results." - Eva Dougherty
