Janelle Stone Estate Services provides more than just the typical Estate Sale. We tailor our sales to each client’s needs.
Janelle Stone Estate Services, LLC has provided Estate Liquidations and Appraisals in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex for 32 years.
Our company has the capacity to handle ALL SIZES of estate sales, but our specialty has become, over the years, very large estate liquidations.
We work with each client to make sure they understand the process from start to finish. We base our business on the principles of Honesty, Integrity and Ethics.
Here’s What We Do:
Before a sale, we bring in an experienced team to organize, clean, shine and polish every item in the sale. We will create a beautiful, comprehensive display of all items to be sold. If, during our staging process, we find items that appear to be sentimental or potentially valuable that weren’t previously mentioned, we will consult with you and get your permission before the sale to sell those items. All available tables, shelves and storage areas will be utilized and additional tables will be provided for display purposes.
We will appraise all sale items and prices will be marked with materials that we provide. For items of potential value that are not within our area of expertise, we may choose to engage an outside appraiser at our expense. Our client’s input regarding the value of specific items is always considered.
We will advertise on our website via our large database of names and emails of people who have signed up to be on our email list. Descriptions and photos are included on the website. We will also advertise on Estate Sale Websites pertinent to the area in which the sale will be held. Advertisements will also be placed in the local newspapers.
Conduct Of The Sale
We will conduct the sale in a professional and efficient manner with two main objectives: to sell every available item and to maximize proceeds for our clients. To assist with the sale, we will we will hire as many individuals as are necessary from our pool of seasoned, experienced and reliable professionals. Much of our staff has been with us for many years.
We will take all reasonable steps to guard against theft of or damage to sale items. Security is one of our primary considerations. We will use locked showcases for anything small that is of great value and we will hire off-duty police officers as is necessary to ensure the security of the sale and the customers.
During an estate sale, Janelle Stone Estate Services accepts all major credit cards and cash. The client will receive payment within one week of the conclusion of the sale.
Disposal of Unsold Items
While we find that most clients prefer to go through items after a sale, we will gladly suggest names of charities that will pick up unsold items at your convenience.
If you need help with your estate in the Dallas Texas area, we would love to hear from you.
