Our Services

 

RVA Estate Sales is a locally owned and operated estate sale service dedicated to providing the best customer experience possible.  We know that dealing with an estate is sometimes an overwhelming project, so we strive to provide a service that is stress-free and conducted with respect and dignity to all parties involved, from the sellers to the customers.  Our team has over a decade of experience in the estate business and a strong customer service background, making us uniquely qualified to handle all manner of sales, from estates to downsizing to business liquidation.

Your sale starts with a free initial consultation, where we determine the scope of your sale.  We will take initial site pictures to start advertising your sale as soon as possible to generate as much interest s possible.  Preparation begins two weeks ahead of your sale.  We go through every closet, cabinet and drawer, organizing and merchandizing your items to maximize the shopability of your estate.  We also set aside any personal items such as photographs, paperwork and other pieces that are determined to be personal in nature.  Items that are found are retained and given to the person responsible for the estate.  We determine pricing based on our knowledge of the market and value.  We have an extensive reference library and network of individuals with expertise in specific areas. 

An estate sale will last between one and three days depending on the quantity of the items in your inventory.  We charge a commission rate against total sales, minus the advertising costs.  No money comes directly out of your pocket.  The commission varies depending on the quality and quantity of items and the amount of work involved.  Our goal is to make the whole experience as stress free as it can be for you and your family.  We will handle all aspects of the estate or moving sale and business liquidation sale for you.
