Why We Are Different
Organizing the Sale
Vaughan Estate Sales & Appraisals bring the highest level of experience and professionalism to your estate sale. With the goal of getting the best result for each client, we assess, plan and prepare meticulously to maximize success. We make the process as easy as possible, organizing and staging possessions for you to achieve the greatest sales in an optimized environment.
A Step Beyond
Vaughan Estate Sales & Appraisals also provide service beyond the typical weekend sale. We assess the market value of prized family possessions to determine if the worth of an object is greater than you could receive in your estate sale. If so, we utilize our extensive network, online auctions and/or consignment houses to find a collector. This expert service is important to you because a weekend "tag sale" may not be the best way to sell certain items of higher value. In a timely manner, we help you realize the full potential of your estate.
With a turnkey Vaughan Estate Sale, all of your possessions are given the attention necessary, to provide you with the greatest return for your estate and the peace of mind you deserve.
