Thank you.

You can try Leslie Hindman auction house to start; they can do a home visit and determine if any of the items can be consigned to their auction house. Here is the link for you to her site:

Hindmand would be the top tier.

You can also try Everything But the House, an estate sale company that comes into the home and manages the entire sale for you. Here is a link to their site for you:

Other options are Susanin’s Auction House and Wright Auctions:'S.html
