I produce Estate Sales. I’m a client representative for the owners of collectibles, heirlooms, and general household furnishings.
I’m the one to call when you, your parents, your neighbors, or clients are ready to separate, downsize, sell, move, and...they’re overwhelmed. I’m the one that helps you discern which items might be valuable in an antique auction or gallery, which might be appropriate for a mid-level estate sale, or which items are better taken to the thrift shop for donation. Then I handle all the details for your sale items - from conducting an online or on-site estate sale, to negotiating a consignment or sale of a rare antique to a high-end gallery.
I was born into this business - my Mom was a prominent antique dealer in Central NY State, and while I had a long career in the corporate world, I always returned to this life with stints at Sotheby’s NYC in the folk art department, and at Skinner in Boston, and as a rep and client for several online and brick & mortar auction houses from NYC and Boston to Syracuse. My connections run deep.
After my Mom passed I inherited many of her clients who kept me running on weekends to various venues, picking, bidding, consigning and selling. I also was left with the task of liquidating my Mom’s 30 year antique business and my parents' 13 room victorian home. So I know how difficult and taxing the process can be. I've been on both sides of this fence!
I am regularly referred by realtors, sr. move managers, elder estate lawyers, organizers and stagers - they call on me before, during, or after their process - to consult on "salable" items in the homes, and how to proceed in the most logical manner to get the most out of the contents of their estate.
I've seen the ups and downs of the market, and the mixed customer service in this nuanced arena for over two decades. After representing several established auction outlets, I've chosen to be independent - researching values and advising solely on behalf of my clients - I work for no one but YOU.
In the end, I’m a problem solver - helping to propel clients in the right direction - forward - so they can get squared away, breathe easier, and have a fresh start!
Feel free to call me - my first visit on-site is always complimentary!
