We are very pleased that we used Howe Estate Sales. First of all, Parker and his associate John were a delight to work with. We were dealing with an estate where there was a reverse mortgage on the house (with the constant threat of foreclosure) and the owner had been an extreme hoarder. We were totally overwhelmed with how to sort through things and what to do with them. The timeframe was almost impossibly tight but Parker calmly guided us through the process of getting things ready for the sale. We especially appreciated that he was always just a phone call away and never too busy to answer our questions even though he was involved with a couple of other sales.
The sale itself was a tremendous success. Between Parker’s contacts and the advertising (e.g., John’s 185 wonderful pictures on the web) over a thousand people came during the two days of the sale. The result was that we got almost twice the amount that we had hoped for. In every way, Howe Estate Sales exceeded our expectations.

Parker Howe and his associates, John and Susan, were very professional. I received a free in-home assessment of what type of estate sale would be most appropriate for the level of contents of the home. I was allowed to put reserve prices on some of the articles, and during the sale, I was contacted for approval if offers were made on articles that I didn't have reserves on but was concerned about how much to sell them for. The set up days were done to make it make it convenient for me, and the photos were done well, giving my articles good layout and appeal. My house was left in the same condition as it was in before the sale. I ended up with most of the articles sold, and for the prices I wanted or close to them for many of them. Open to suggestions and pleasant to deal with, I would recommend this business to anyone who has a lot of stuff to sell, and wants the event to go smoothly and as stress free as possible.
