In the course of several recent estate sale client interviews, it has become apparant that there are now many “newcomers” to our business (of 21 years) that are confusing the market with sub-par performances.
The problem is that there is no licensing requirements in MD, VA, DC, to be in the estate sale business, so that basically anybody that has ever had a yard sale thinks they can join the business! Caveat emptor!
This is an art and a science that can only be honed by YEARS of trials of technique. Since most clients only hold and conduct ONE in-home estate sale in their lifetime, the newcomers with half-baked methods are never “outted”, and continue to take advantage of new clients with minimal results and perhaps no payment at the endWhat was once chaos becomes order and assets with EstateMAX estate sales systems.

Missing 1948 Wedding Dress Found at Antiques Shop
Feb 15, 2017
Antiques often seem to find their owners. Jane Foster, a shopper in Grand Junction, Colorado, was walking down the street when she saw her mother’s wedding picture in an antique shop window. It was a shock since the wedding had been in Arizona in 1948. After the wedding, the dress had been boxed. It was eventually placed, along with other belongings, in a storage locker until her father died. But 12 years ago, the contents of the locker was auctioned off. Later the family searched but couldn’t find any of the items. Foster’s mother had since died. When Foster ran into the store and asked to see the picture, the owner told her he not only had the picture, but also the wedding dress. It was still wrapped in the original box, along with a newspaper dated June 22, 1948, two days after the wedding. Foster asked the price of the dress. The shop owner said there was no price. “It’s made its way back to you. It’s home.” Foster agrees. “This is a message to us that she is still thinking about us,” she said, “and watching over us.” (Based on information from KKCO news in Colorado.)
