Call (847) 306-0877 :: Our full service Naperville estate sales company will take you from start to finish without you having to lift a finger.
If you have ever had to handle estate affairs, you already know how involved they can get. If you haven’t, then you might be wondering how an estate sale or liquidation works. We serve clients all over the greater Chicago area, including Naperville. Estate sales are a better alternative to garage sales and are the perfect option if the value of the items aren’t suited for an auction.
Want to learn more about North Shore Estate Sales and what we do? Below you’ll find more details about how we help our clients and why estate sales are an invaluable service to heirs and families.
Naperville Estate Sales Services
We have an experienced team of professionals who are experts at estate sales, appraisals, or property clean outs. We work with clients who have a variety of needs who may or may not know much about how estate sales work but know they need help. Many people come to us after the passing of a loved one or a significant life change. While some clients seek us out to help price out antiques, their parents left them at the estate, others hire us to handle the contents of a home after a marriage has ended. Regardless of your situation, we are here to help make these transitions as straightforward as possible.
A Strong Buyer Network and Marketing Machine
Part of what makes our company so beneficial to work with is our network of legitimate buyers. We have established healthy relationships with various types of buyers from those who seek luxury items to those who are seeking very particular antiques and collectibles.
We also have a strong marketing and advertising effort that we use to promote our sales across all types of platforms. This includes both online and offline approaches.
North Shore Estate Sales Experts
One of the main reasons our business is recommended is due to our people and partnering professionals. Our estate sales experts have years of experience in this industry and have learned from the best. We also work with experts in niche fields like collectibles and fine estate jewelry. If we stumble on to something we don’t know about, we investigate and vet the item until we understand its actual value.
White Glove Service
This transaction is about so much more than making a profit. Handling estates are personal, and the people who owned the items at the estate were real people who have/had real lives. We never take your estate for granted and always handle items with a great deal of respect.

We will have sufficient staff throughout the home to make sure that that home is secure and every customer gets the help they need. Between the our skilled sales staff and the extensive advertising your sale is sure to be a success.
Step 4 – The Clear-Out
In the days following sale our clear out and delivery crew will be there to empty the home of all the remaining items. You are of course welcome to keep anything that doesn’t sell but if you do not want to keep it we will take it away for you. All items that can be donated go to a local charity and anything that can’t be donated will be disposed of for you. You will be giving a tax deduction for everything that is donated.
Step 5 – The Results
Following the sale your Estate Sale Specialist will go over the results of the sale with you. After going over the results you will receive a check, a tax deduction slip and a completely empty home.
