      • Don’t donate, give away, or sell any items before our consultation.

This is the biggest mistake people make. Every item no matter whether it is big, small, of great value or of minimal value, contributes to the value of your estate. By “cleaning house” prior to a sale you could dramatically reduce your end result. We ONLY recommend the disposal of perishable food items and personal/financial papers or documents.

      • Don’t worry about how messy you think things might be.

Top Tier will organize and display your property for the sale. It is best to let us handle all the work.

      • Do pack and remove from the property any items you wish to keep or condense them to an area secure.

Family members should think about what they want to keep from the estate before the estimate takes place so that we can provide you with an accurate assessment figure for your estate’s market value.

      • Do feel confident leaving your sale in the experienced and trusted hands of Top Tier Estate Sales.
