How Estate Sales Work

  1. No Out of Pocket Costs. We work on a commission basis which ensures our commitment to selling the contents of your Estate at the best price possible.

  2. Most Popular Estate Sales are everyday homes

  3. Call us for a free consultation

  4. Don’t throw anything away! Many items that appear weathered and old or of little value, may hold significant worth. Remember as the saying goes, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”

  5. Contact us asap

  6. We sell household contents, art, cars, furniture, jewelry, unusual items, just about anything and everything!

  7. Timeline; Red Apron typically requires a two week lead time from consultation to the actual sale. Plenty of preparation and staging is required for a maximum return on the Estate Sale.
