Not all estate sale companies are alike. There are those who operate with a high standard of ethics and integrity, dedicate their careers to the industry, and put their clients’ needs first. These are the estate sale professionals that you need to find and hire. Much like any other industry, there are good estate sale professionals and less than stellar estate sale professionals. It falls on the one doing the hiring to decipher who is a good fit for them and who isn’t. How can you tell the difference? Do some research.
Much about interviewing estate sale professionals comes down to gut instinct and how you feel about the person you are considering. If you feel good about them, confident they can do an excellent job for you, and you have no doubts, these are usually good signs to move forward. On the other hand, if there is something you can’t quite put your finger on that is bothersome, or you feel uncomfortable for any reason, listen to that feeling. While there is no perfect way of selecting an estate sale company, there are some things that can help you proactively through the process. It is worth the effort to do so.
