Onsite Estate Sales
Our estate sale process is easy on our clients. We handle everything from start to finish. We know clients are looking to get the most value for their items and that is our primary focus too. We also market the sale for the largest possible turn out and use the highest levels of security than anyone in the industry.
Specialty items are often best suited for auction so we can get your items in front of a larger and more targeted and suitable audience. We are the only estate sale firm that includes appraisal services at no additional charge.
Online Estate Sales
If your HOA doesn’t allow onsite estate sales, or you just don’t want to have hundreds of people coming through your home, our online estate sale service is perfect for you.
Online estate sales have been around for many years but have become increasingly popular during the pandemic.
Whether you chose a traditional estate sale or an “online” estate sale we take care of everything from start to finish. Our online estate sale service is especially beneficial for your special items like fine jewelry, fine art, and designer items as you will enjoy a much larger audience.
We have a long history of selling Asian art and Asian furnishings. We’ve liquidated art galleries and museums, and our network of buyers are always interested in items from around the world. It is likely we already have a buyer for your Asian treasures.
Call for an estimate of what your item or items could bring in public or private sale or auction.
When a client doesn’t have time or the desire for a traditional estate sale, an estate liquidation (also known as a “buy out”) is offered. In this method we will either purchase the contents of the estate or bring in one of our many investors/collectors who are always looking for a fast transaction. Which ever is most lucrative for the client.
We realize that having people come through your property, much less touching our personal items is an odd occurrence. While we are preparing for the sale you will come to know our staff quite well. You will find them compassionate, uplifting, pleasant, and professional. Our past clients will tell you that by the sale date our staff will feel like family to you. We hope you will ask us for references.
We know all about security.
It’s important to know that California Estate Sales and Auction Company provides many levels of security for their estate sales. Professional security is on staff, staff is assigned to each room of home, lock boxes are used for jewelry, and more that we can’t mention. Security is just another thing clients of CESAC do not have to worry about.
No one should ever hire an estate Sale firm without first verifying they have adequate liability insurance and confirming they are bonded. References should also be checked for authenticity. Additionally, professional security should be on site for all days of the sale.
We have buyers for everything.
Our vetted and professional staff will handle your estate as though it was their own.
An Estate Sale is a method of liquidating belongings of a family or estate. They are typically used when someone must move, downsize, or in the case of divorce, bankruptcy, death, etc.
The home is staged by the firm handling the sale and belongings are priced and displayed for purchase. Then the public is invited into the home and given the opportunity to purchase the goods. Often children are not allowed nor are backpacks or large bags to protect the estate from shrinkage. Additionally, because the estate sale is posted in local periodicals and on-line usually people will line up early to be part of the first groups to have the opportunity to review and purchase items for sale. It is common that antique dealers, vintage collectors, and other professionals local to the property will be first in line. Sometimes numbers will be given out so there is no confusion who was there first. It is typical to find furniture, art, clothing, Rolex watches, vintage Rolex watches, gold Rolex watches, rugs, estate jewelry, fine jewelry, coins, gold coins, kitchen items, bar ware, books, bedding, electronics, tools, automobiles, classic cars, sports memorabilia, Hollywood memorabilia, and more.
An estate auction is where everything is auctioned instead of being sold locally. California Estate Sales and Auction Company has special expertise in this area as they have long term international contacts that expose estates to millions of buyers for maximum return rather than just local buyers.
Immediate Sales or "Buy Outs"
Occasionally there are circumstances where clients do not have the benefit of time for various reasons including emergencies. When this occurs Rancho Mirage Estate Sales and Auction Company utilizes contacts that will purchase entire estates or individual items immediately.
