We both have worked many years in Corporate America for Fortune 100 Companies. Having been "Big Box" Retail Managers. Now we enjoy the ability to do what we love by providing a service in an industry that we truly enjoy. It is our pleasure to conduct both estate sales and online estate auction.
Craig grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia attending auctions with his mom, Blanche. Blanche taught Craig at a young age the ins and out of auctions. She taught him how to research items and how to spot authentic trademarks. She collected and displayed many treasures and though some buys were not “money makers” she did enjoy the hunt. Blanche never resold anything she bought. When Blanche became ill, she only trusted Craig to sell her estate. We know how emotions effect a sale.
Maureen grew up in Metro Detroit. She spent many a Saturday going to estate sales and garage sales to find treasures that filled an eclectic home with antiques, mid-century and vintage furnishings that we still enjoy today.
In 2002 we made the decision to take our knowledge and passion for collecting treasures to create a business that would help people who were moving, downsizing, or had to clear out a home or business as a result of illness or death. We realized quickly that many “big” companies would not take on an average home in a middle-class area. We made it our mission to showcase every home with dignity and respect, our mission has reduced stress and raise funds for families and business partners during difficult times.
We also knew we had to run our business with integrity. We started out doing traditional Estate Sales. After about 13 years, Craig went to Auctioneer School and we began doing the Estate Sales as Online Estate Auctions. We have grown the company to 7 professional full time teams. We have an easy to read and understand contract, take professional pictures, write complete & accurate descriptions, take credit cards, have professionally made street signs, advertise in multiple locations and above all treat our clients and customers like family. We also know that some things will just not sell. Being very involved with our church we offer the possibility of donating to a free store – yes free. Anyone needing something can come in and get it free. Another option, we can quote a complete clean out once the sale or online auction is complete and we know what is left.
