It does take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to properly clean, set up, stage, price and advertise a sale. PLEASE do not wait till the last minute, it will cost you in the end. We specialize in large estates with lots of stuff ... DO NOT THROW anything non perishable and personal papers away before contacting a professional, that too can cost you lots of money .. See below for some pointers, we'd love to at least talk with you at no obligation and see if we are the right fit for you and your sale :)
Please make sure you are ON our ESTATE SALE EMAIL LIST by signing up for it today! You can do this to the left or click HERE
Yes, this is a lot of information, it would be in your best interest to read it all and understand it; as you are about to embark on one of the most overwhelming, stressful task of your life and should not be taken lightly or without having all the facts; it can and will cost you thousands of dollars not knowing all the options and facts. Even if you don't chose Eagerly Sought, you can use this information when interviewing others. Eagerly Sought's goal is to educate our clients and customers, both real and potential. There are a LOT of folks out there posing as professional liquidators. Do they have insurance, we do. Are they a licensed business in the State of Texas, we are. Do they have a client base of over 5000 organic, loyal clients, we do .. There is SO SO much more to doing an estate sale than just setting up and opening it .....
Any person or family member who finds themselves needing to sell, or liquidate inherited or personal property, or someone having to "deal with it", will benefit from the services of a experienced, compassionate, honest, and professional Estate Sale Service. The biggest mistake one can make is NOT contacting one to at least find out the facts. Contact us now for a no obligation consultation.

When you contact us we will set a convenient time for you, sit down, discuss your needs and expectations. Based on that conversation, we will present a plan of action and give you all your options we can provide. It's of vital importance that you feel comfortable with and trust the Company that is going to be performing your Estate Sale as well as we feel the same about you. Eagerly Sought strives to meet and exceed every expectation you, as our Client may have. This is not a task that you want to put off any longer than you possibly can. When a home is vacant there are a plethora of problems that start right away. It does take some time to properly clean, arrange, sort, price, market and promote your sale the right way. Anything worth doing it worth is worth doing right is our philosophy. This task of an Estate Sale is something you don't want to rush and haphazardly put together. Eagerly Sought would like to have the chance to earn your business, so give us a call. There are some things you need to know RIGHT NOW, even if you don't use us. We have listed them below and hope they help you.
I will also interject here that if you are solely concerned with getting it done as cheap as possible, sacrificing professionalism, ethics, and class, then there is no need to contact Eagerly Sought, we take great pride in our service we provide. While we are VERY competitive in our pricing and there are few that can "out do" us when it comes to our service; we will not tarnish our reputation by doing a "cheap" job for anyone, anytime, sorry.
Our commission rates are 35% to 50% depending on what, where and how you want it done.
Useful information to use right away to avoid costly mistakes
1. Start talking with and interview Estate Sale Professionals now, you need to know your options, call references, and make decisions. You really need to talk to at least 2, if possible three that have been in the business for at least two years.
2. Do NOT Throw ANYTHING away, I have had clients throw thousands of dollars of merchandise away unknowingly. You would not believe what people will buy, so don't discard anything until after we meet and discuss it. There are some exceptions: Common household trash, perishable items that will mold or mildew, and of course personal documents with information that could be used for fraud; this all need to be removed and or thrown away.
3. Don't turn off the electricity, gas or Internet if currently available. Furthermore, these utilities will be needed to properly do your sale. If you have a timer, put a lamp, TV in a couple rooms and have them go on and off, the appearance of someone living there will detour criminals.
4. The family needs to pick a "spokesperson" to make the decisions, and be "in charge" of the negotiations, handling, etc. of the sale and process, if there is a executor, that would legally be the person we would need to deal with. To many "Chiefs" will make it a living nightmare for everyone involved, trust me on this one! We are respectful of all involved but will not get in the middle of family squabbles or greed that sprouts up way too often.
5. Change the locks or re-key the house, only the person "in charge" and your Estate Sale Service will need to have access. This is to ensure it remains secure for you, your Estate Sale Service and the others that may have a vested interest in the Estate. Again, trust me, you will be glad you did.
5. Keep up the appearance of the home, both in and out, to a the normal standard it was, this will help the sale, as well as keep people from knowing it's not occupied.
There are many Estate Liquidators that will NOT, under any circumstance work directly with the family, or people wanting to do the Estate Sale. Eagerly Sought will work with, or without our clients present or involved. We will, together, set ground rules from the beginning so everyone is always on the same page and rarely ever any problems with assumptions, expectations, theft, or lack of respect for all involved.
IF for ANY reason, you feel uncomfortable with someone wanting to do your estate sale, you should follow your gut, even if it's with Eagerly Sought, you always need to "feel" right with anyone performing such a task as this. Eagerly Sought has very pleased references from EVERY client we have had, if you wish to speak with them. This is a very overwhelming task, and you need to have complete confidence that the people you hire will do the best job, be honest, and concerned with YOUR needs and expectations!
Eagerly Sought is bonded for your protection as well as ours. We have and require a signed contract prior to starting the job, again to protect you as well as us. We are also registered with the State of Texas as a legitimate operating business, have a giant retail store in Honey Grove. Owners and employees as well live in the and around the Honey Grove community. In other words we have a lot riding on doing the best job possible and keeping our good reputations.
