Where To Begin With Your Estate Sale

  • Call Georgia Jobes Estate Sale Services to discuss your needs.

  • Setup a walkthrough or video chat with the Georgia Jobes Estate Sale Services team.

What We Do

  • Once you’ve chosen Georgia Jobes Estate Sale Services to conduct your estate sale, we will agree on terms and sign a contract. It’s important for you to know we cannot start the set-up process or confirm a sale date until the contract is signed.
  • We offer a turn-key experience and our flat rate commissions range from 35%-50% depending on the quality, quantity, and number of hours required to setup the estate sale. Some exceptions may apply. There is nothing more transparent than a flat rate commission. If you think it is expensive to hire a professional company wait until you hire an amateur one.
  • Generally, the process is a three-week turnaround from start to finish, with some exceptions.
  • During the setup process, we sort through everything and then we professionally stage all the furnishings to achieve a showroom like atmosphere.
  • We price everything in the home at fair market value and have two Accredited Members of the International Society of Appraisers, ISA AM on staff.
  • We photograph and/or video the contents of the estate sale, then create our ads, digital marketing, and social media campaigns. We have an average of 25,000 views per sale; as well as, an extensive email list and social media following.
  • Typically, an estate sale lasts two to three days depending on the volume of goods.
  • We place signage advertising the sale where appropriate, obtain permits, provide limited access to eliminate theft, secure smaller valuable items in show cases, and continuously restage during the sale.
  • At the conclusion of the sale, we will help you to determine the best way to handle any items that remain.
  • We pay our clients within ten business days following the conclusion of the estate sale, which will include a settlement statement and sales receipts if requested.

Some Things We Don’t Do…

  • We do not charge for our initial walk through; however, if you want an appraisal of your items that is a separate service.
  • We are not a refuse removal service. We don’t haul off trash and cannot dispose of hazardous materials, antiquated electronics, and non-functional appliances.
  • We are not a professional cleaning service. We do offer light cleaning and polishing, as needed, for proper display and sale of items.
  • We do not move heavy or large items within the home during setup and staging. We are not a professional moving company.
  • We are unable to conduct an estate sale if someone is still living on the premises.
  • We do not accept estate sales that have a low volume of items (garage sales). We are a professional estate sale company and successful estate sales happen when you have a large quantity of good quality items to sell (that is what creates a draw). If you have a small quantity of high value items, we can offer consignment, brokerage, or outright purchase. This includes firearm collections, jewelry, precious metals, and other valuable items.
  • We do not take commission on found U.S. face value currency.
  • We do not provide buyout services.
  • We do not charge our clients for credit card processing fees, set up, light cleaning, advertising, or labor.

Texas Estate Sales FAQ

When do I receive the sale proceeds?2022-06-09T13:17:26-05:00

Within 10 days of the conclusion of all selling.  Please see Estate Sales for more helpful information.

What happens to the items that don’t sell?2022-06-09T13:16:45-05:00

We do everything we can to assist our clients with the disposition of unsold items. Our sales generally don’t have much left of any value at the conclusion of the sale. If several hundred people have had an opportunity to look over the items you have for sale and no one wants it, it may be best to donate those items.

How many days will the actual public sale run?2022-06-09T13:16:08-05:00

Two to three days depending on the volume of merchandise for sale.

How long will the setup process take?2022-06-09T13:15:48-05:00

Typically, two to three weeks depending on the volume of merchandise and to allow for proper marketing of your sale.

How much do we charge?2022-06-09T13:15:32-05:00

If that’s the first question you ask, we’re probably not the right fit for your needs. There are plenty of amateurs in this business who charge low commission rates. If you are looking for a professional company with years of experience and a proven track record, then we may be your solution. The result of using an inexperienced company could cost you thousands of dollars in lost sale proceeds. Beware of companies offering FREE haul-offs at the end of the selling process.
