When hired for my own sale Diane was very patient. She took the time to look at all the merchandise and did research on those items she was not familiar with. She always asked questions and consulted with me. The sale itself was conducted in a quiet, classy manner. Nothing was stolen or broken.
In the end, I got rid of everything and put the money in the bank. Diane followed through on making sure the house was left empty and clean. There was one painting that had been at a gallery and she took great care in getting it back to me when I changed my mind and decided I wanted to keep it. I would recommend Diane to anybody without hesitation.
Once the appraisals were completed, Diane successfully liquidated the contents with an estate sale held over 2 weekends. She and her team organized, displayed, and photographed everything. She handled all the details; advertising, sales, security, and overseeing charitable donations of the remaining items. She then had the house and property cleared and prepared for sale.
Diane’s services provided all that I, as the trustee, needed to fulfill the legal requirements of the trust. She completely relieved me of the emotional stress of dealing with a large home full of the belongings and memories of my grandparents. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs these services.
An acquaintance suggested I contact Town and Country Estate Sales. I met with Diane and she won my confidence with her organized approach and knowledge of the contents of the estate. She immediately recognized and evaluated most of the items. Nothing escaped her notice; there were some books that appeared valuable and she speed-dialed an expert.
The sale was a huge success and everything was sold – right down to the pots and pans. I simply couldn’t have done it without her.
When Diane came over for a consultation she saw that it was a huge project with a tight timeline. I didn’t think it possible, but she and her terrific crew got everything prepared for the estate sale in just a few days. She did a great job of advertising and notifying her extensive list of buyers. There was a long line of people waiting to get in every day of the sale. Absolutely everything was sold as she promised it would be.
I was really pleased with the money I made, and grateful that Diane helped me manage my personal stuff and get the house emptied and clear in time for the escrow closing. I felt lucky to have found her!
The house was still pretty full when I contacted Diane of Town and Country Estate Sales. She agreed to help us by staging and pricing what was left and conducting a professional estate sale which meant a lot to us, because we really needed her help. We knew that she usually handled bigger estates than ours, but she came through, getting us the best possible outcome and leaving the house empty and broom clean as she promised.
We were all very pleased with her and her crew.
