WHAT SHOULD WE DO FIRST?
First, you give us a call. We meet with you to determine your goals and concerns.
We evaluate your home and property to determine how best to present the estate.
After meeting with you, we formulate a plan that will most effectively and efficiently generate a successful sale.

WHAT SHOULD WE THROW AWAY?
We always advise clients not to throw anything away until we’ve had our initial meeting. Almost everything is worth something. And a lot of the time, the things you think
won’t sell, do sell.

IS THERE A CONSULTATION CHARGE?
We are pleased to meet with you about a sale. The initial consultation is on a
“no cost/no obligation” basis.

WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
We work on a commission structure. Our fees generally include research, evaluation, pricing, organization, staff and advertising for the sale.

HOW DO YOU PRICE ITEMS IN THE SALE?
With over 50 years of experience, our team members have a comprehensive knowledge in many areas and specialties of antiques, collectibles, fine art, decorative objects and contemporary furnishings. We use our own industry experience, our research library books, our network of specialists and current online resources to provide accurate, fair market value on all antiques and higher priced valuables.

HOW DO YOU ATTRACT BUYERS TO THE SALE?
We advertise your sale on the Retro Robin website, on estatesales.net and estatesales.org (nationwide estate sale listing website), on craigslist.org, in local newspapers and with an e-mail announcement to our subscribers including our private list of dealers, collectors and decorators. These promotions are specifically designed to draw the highest number of potential buyers to your sale.

WHEN DO WE GET PAYMENT?
We forward you a check for the net proceeds of the sale, less our commission, and any other contracted charges, within 10 business days after the conclusion of the sale.
