Leonard Auction recognizes that settling an estate is often an emotional, exhausting and daunting task. We have found that on-site estate sales work very well in select situations. These situations include estates where there is an abundance of large and / or reproduction items and estates valued at $50,000 and above. Our team is experienced at conducting quality estate sales in situations where an auction is not feasible.
THE ESTATE SALE PROCESS
Leonard Auction will provide a complimentary evaluation of the estate based on photographs. After reviewing the photographs, we will follow up with an on-site visit to discuss the appropriate venue and time to sell your property.
After evaluating your property and determining the marketability, Leonard Auction will contract with you to conduct an estate sale. The contract details the terms of sale and the commission rate.
