I just wanted to say thank you for your professional presentation on your website. The sales I have been able to attend in the Auburn/Roseville area are well organized, clean and fairly priced. I now realize how refreshing it is to just be informed about the items for sale, with no pseudo-psychological evaluation of the owner or their lifestyle.
A few weeks ago three of us attended a sale by __ in Sacramento. As first-timers to we were surprised to find things not priced, and even more surprised at the totals she (and only she) quoted. When I blurted "wow, that's a lot" she demanded to know my name and said she would delist me from her emails! So we walked away, with our money in our pockets.
I've never been fired as a customer before!
Best wishes for continued success in your Estate Sale business. We'll be at yours when they are in the neighborhood.
“I never saw so many people in such a short time”
“I liked the fact that I didn’t have to decide how to set-up or what to keep or clean.”
“I was amazed at how efficiently all the details were taken care of. I came home from vacation and Gary had handled everything.”
“Gary took what was a hard time for me to go through and made it a pleasant experience. He made it “fun” as promised and I was glad so many people had the chance to share in my brother’s collection. It was the best sale ever…”
“I have heard nothing but positive comments about your sales and services, cheers to you!
“Schiff Estate Services delivered more than I expected... great job!”
"Hi Gary and Danyelle too,
I just wanted to let you know we received the settlement statement with the check today. Thank you.
We appreciate everything you did to assist us on this estate sale. It was challenging for us being out of state, but you stepped in when we needed you most. We look forward to doing business with you again when we have another estate in your area."
Stopped by the house this morning and all I can say is WHAT A BEAUTIFUL JOB! I think you out did yourself on this one. The house looks like the day we moved in over 12 years ago.
If you ever would like to use me as a reference, don't hesitate. Many thanks for a great job."
"Dear Gary and Danyelle,
I would like to take some time out to express to the both of you how very much I appreciate and enjoy your business. Out of all the antique shops I have ever been to, yours is my absolute favorite! The prices are always great and the antiques and collectable are fantastic. It is such a pleasure to see you guys every time I come to your store. I have been going here for years and I have never once seen either of you angry or upset. I look forward to seeing the positive attitudes you both express. Once again, out of all of the other antique shops I have ever been, yours is by far my favorite! Thank you for being the wonderful people you are and having such an awesome business! "
" Dear Gary,
Just a note to thank you for the great job you did all the way around. Its difficult at best for people to divest themselves of memories and things that were important in their lives. I think that the sensitivity you show in performing your job is very helpful to people. I know it was for me. Again, many, many thanks."
"I considered several liquidation firms before settling on Schiff Estate Services. Gary and his staff were knowledgeable, professional, and addressed every detail with care – even recruiting an additional specialist for a particularly challenging appraisal. I recommend them without reservation."
Thanks for the report and the statement - and all of the work you and your crew did.
It has been a little odd seeing my belongings first on your website and then on the list- having been sold for this or that amount. I've had to process the feelings but ultimately it has felt good and right to let it all go.
And I'm grateful that you came along to be the one to do that job for me. I very much appreciated your calm and professional demeanor. So, thank you very much."
"Thank you so much. You guys are number 1. We love you"
Karen and Ali
"You're the best - thank you so much! I'll come by tomorrow and get it. "
Thank you again, Karen
