Why choose an estate sale
over an auction?

Some might think these are the same, but estate sales are better in a few important ways.

  • An estate sale takes place at your location. No need to move your items to an auction house. With an estate sale, you save the expense of a moving company to relocate your items.
  • Estate sales can take place over several days. This provides more opportunity for more shoppers to view your items. Most auctions are a one-time, limited time event to a smaller audience.
  • Your items might not sell, or they might sell at a low bid amount at an auction. We price items at the best market value, so you make more money on your sale.
  • An auction is generally more expensive than an estate sale for both clients and customers.

An estate sale with a professional is the way to go. Maximize your profit and minimize your work!

What “great” things do others say about The Great Estate, LLC?

Don’t take it from us. Others think we’re pretty great, too.


I couldn't have been happier with The Great Estate. They removed all worry and concerns from an endeavor that would have been extremely stressful.  The communication was spot-on, and the enthusiasm Laurie displayed from the time we first spoke through the end of the process was more than I could have hoped for.
