Our clients and customers love us and it shows!
We’ve received tremendously positive feedback over nearly two decades of service and would like to share a small selection of thank you letters.
We first met with Jenifer and she was great. Becky was so helpful getting me the correct info and all the staff at our house were pleasant ,efficient and friendly. Off course we would have liked to have sold everything,but that isn't realistic. We were pleased with the outcome. Cascade clean out did our after sale clean out and we highly recommend them.
Thank you so much for all the great work your team did for us. I am amazed at how much is gone. You must have a great following out there. Your team is wonderful. Friendly, respectful, hard working. Jenifer was very helpful in answering all our questions, scheduling, and letting us know what was happening. All the folks that came to sort and price were very friendly and answered all our questions. They did a great job setting up. We walked in the first day after set up and were amazed at how nice it looked. Some rooms looked even better than before the sorting and set up. Plus, they were very respectful of us staying in the house until the sale and left our bed free of items and areas in the kitchen free so we could at least do a bit of cooking and cleaning. I was especially happy they left the area by my coffee pot free of items! Brian is a gem. His patience with all our pricing questions and dealing with our concerns is admirable. Plus he is just very friendly and knowledgeable. And wow, when we come home after the sale, which went on way past noon on Saturday (thank you), we were so extremely surprised and very happy that so much was gone but mostly on how clean and neat you left the house. All the leftover items were neatly put along the sides of the rooms or on the left-over furniture and the rooms were swept or vacuumed. Helene was still here sweeping the garage (it hasn’t looked that good since we moved in) and then despite our telling her she could leave and we would finish cleanup, she insisted on staying to finish the two upstairs rooms. For an event that is emotionally difficult, your team made it very easy. Thank you very much!
I love this estate sale company! Becky and her wonderful crew are helpful and fair and do a fabulous job! The staff is cheerful, even when there are lots of people they take time to help you. I have seen them deal with very rude customers with patience and professionalism, something I'm not so sure I would do well, but they certainly do! They are also quite knowledgeable when dealing with vintage and antique items.
Interactions were always professional & courteous. We already have passed your number onto our Probate law firm
Kirkland Sale 12/1/2018 - 5.0 star rating
Absolutely the best experience! Brian ran our sale and it went so smoothly. In addition to selling EVERYTHING in two days, the found a valuable item and notified us immediately. They brought in double the amount of money I had expected. The house was left very clean and all items were picked up before the end of the second day. Trustworthy, organized and they really know what they are doing.
Covington Sale 11/16-17/2018
Hi Becky, Thank you for all your efforts. You've really helped us move closer to our goal. Please relay our gratitude to Ralita, Barbra, Eric, and Brian. We have already recommended you to a couple of other people who might be downsizing in the near future. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving & Mahalo plenty,
Eatonville Sale 11/8-9/2018
Starting with the initial consultation Jenifer was impressive. She wrote down information, worked with us to guide us through the process of the estate sale and we felt very comfortable with her from the start. All our interactions were professional especially Jenifer and Brian! The rest of the staff were awesome! You really enjoy each person. You not only met our expectations, but exceeded in every way beyond our wildest dreams. We will recommend you. We were amazed when the crew vacuumed the house! Thank you!
Greenwood Sale 11/1-3/2018 - 5.0 star rating
I used Girlfriends for a sale of my Godfather estate on November 1,2 and 3. He had a lot of vintage furniture that he had collected over the years. Although I live in Miami and the sale was in Seattle, the folks from Girlfriends were very accessible and helpful. They went the extra mile to sort and organized and keep me informed as to how the sale was going. They even added an extra day because of the amount of things that were there. They also hired a company to take away and clean the house of the things that were not sold. They distributed all they money with complete integrity. I highly recommend them.
Auburn Sale 9/13-15/2018 - 5.0 star rating
I used Girlfriends for a sale of my sister's belongings in September. My sister had a lot of stuff she had collected over the years and the folks from Girlfriends, in addition to being accessible and patient, went the extra mile to sort and organize so that we were able to maximize the sale results. Very nice people who work hard and charge a reasonable fee for all the services that they perform.
From the start Brian did an excellent job of introducing us to the process, Setting expectations and communicating plans
Top Rate. Our expectations were high and you definitely met them. We felt and appreciated a personal connection. Thanks to Brian, Jenifer & Becky
We are very happy that we chose to have an Estate sale, and that we chose Girlfriends Estate Sales to conduct it.They came to us highly recommended, and they lived up to their reputation. All that they were able to do to reduce the amount of my parent’s possessions- and to entice others to pay us for the privilege of helping us to do so --was greatly appreciated as it made the rest of our job of preparing the house for sale considerably easier
I just wanted to call you to say that Brian really went above & beyond this weekend helping me out
Hi Becky, Your staff were great, especially Eric, what a helpful employee you have in him. On our 2nd trip Richard and I were having trouble fitting all 6 chairs into the Pick Up. Brian was a 'Genius' for sure, had them figured out within just a few minutes and we were off and onto 405 again. I cleaned up the set this morning and it fits into the color theme beautifully. Thanks again for all your help and see you next time somewhere I'm sure.
We wanted to send you an email regarding an employee Eric Horne. We attended one of your sales in Bellevue today – Sept 22nd and bought several items including 2 very large plant containers and a small plant container. Of course we show up unprepared ( our fault) and had to empty the pots that were full of potting soil and Eric was so helpful to us and found us shovels and buckets to use – we could not have done it without him. He is an excellent representative for your organization . We came away from your sale that we will certainly attend other sales of yours and will recommend your sales to our friends. So many times people are quick to complain and slow to praise so we wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your operation.
From the quality of your website, to all Staff we talked to by phone or met in the process,all were professional, friendly and helpful. Our neighbors and the family that bought our house were impressed with the professional manner in which Girlfriend's ran a well attended sale.
Hi ,Becky I want to thank you for helping us out with the situation we are facing when our person bailed on us for the estate sale.
Surprised that the staging only took one day! Jenifer, Ralita and Brian were all Great!
Great support understanding all the steps. Very easy to initiate and complete. Everyone was great, but Brian especially communicated well throughout the sale. You exceeded my expectations, and I will most definitely recommend your services to others.
Communication was great, from the staff's patience with us during our initial visit to even better as our sale progressed. You exceeded my monetary expectations
We thought mom would be able to stay in the house during the setup and sale, but quickly realized she needed to be moved out. You met & exceeded our expectations. I don’t know how we would have moved my mom out of her house without your help!
Everyone was great and I would strongly recommend your services to others.
You gave me peace of mind, and your service is excellent. Thank you!
While we had hoped for stronger sales, we were pleased with everyone's hard work with organizing and conducting the sale!
All of your staff members were excellent.
Absolutely exceeded our expectations.
Becky did a great job of explaining the process and was careful to be reserved in valuations, particularly "dark wood" furniture. Brian and Eric were great. So many thanks for your flexibility and all of the hard work. I totally love the integrity shown by all.
We were very impressed with Grilfriends' knowledge about items that were being sold: the market trends on "what really is selling right now" and their fair and appropriate pricing for highly collectible and valuable jewelry, watches, silver, art, etc. The crew was efficient, hard-working, and pleasant, and they tackled an overwhelming job with energy and good humor. The prep for the sale, the sale itself, and the results all exceeded our expectations. We recommend Girlfriends Estate Sales heartily and fully.
Interactions were always great. You absolutely exceeded my expectations! I have already recommended your services to other people.
Your staff was always professional, especially Becky and Brian. I was pleased with the results. I know if the weather was better, the results would have been even better. I couldn't imagine trying to do this myself.
We received all the help and info we needed. You have very professional and friendly staff--Brian was great! You exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend you.
I must tell y'all: we went to (our) Shoreline (house) yesterday and met your staff, all of which were very kind, pleasant, and professional. Our hats off to that awesome team!
I wanted to say thank you for all you did getting ready for and conducting the sale today. It was a huge relief for me to be able to turn that job over to you professionals. It was such a pleasure to walk into the house this afternoon and see how much sold. So thank you!
The staff was friendly and helpful. I especially appreciate the care that was taken not to mark up the walls as the whole house had just been painted. Thank you for a very professional job.
Everyone was great. Both Brian and Becky were outstanding.
Please give my thanks to the person(s) who found and set aside my high school and college diplomas. I really appreciate it. I guess I didn't check everything as well as I thought.
I was very impressed with your whole process and the crew that came out and set up. They were friendly, professional and did a great job in setting up and arranging everything in just a day. With all the stuff I had, I was sure it was going to take several days. Brian was great, it is nice to see someone who works hard and clearly loves what he is doing. I will definitely be recommending you and your business to anyone looking for an estate sales company.
Please give my thanks to all who worked at my house.
Wow! Thanks for the amazing job Becky! I will definitely recommend Girlfriends to my clients and colleagues.
I really enjoy your staff. A truly great, really nice group.
We have been going to estate sales since we moved back from Florida 3 years ago. We have come to the conclusion that "Girlfriends" has been the most fair, most organized and most friendly of all the similar companies in the area. Just thought you would like to know!!
It's a huge emotional and physical load off my shoulders having the house and mom’s contents to not have to worry about.
Your staff was excellent and professional throughout the whole process, your organization and pricing of the home contents, your marketing/photos and website coverage, your efficiency astounded me with the hundreds of people that showed up over a two-day sale.
Thank you again, your services are highly recommended.
Thank you to you, Brian and the rest of your team for all your hard work - you made our moving and downsizing process so much easier!
I only wanted to say what an incredible job and appearance your photos do to promote your sales. No one does it better!
I had a wonderful time at the estate sale last Thursday. You have a great group of people that work with you.
Thank you again for the incredible job you and your crew did. I know it was a small sale, but you still gave it your full attention.
I feel so fortunate to have contacted you to handle my estate sale. You, Brian, and the rest of your staff did an amazing job throughout the whole process. Teri and I will show up at one of your next sales, to say hi and maybe find a treasure!
Thanks for all your help with my Mom's place. It is MUCH appreciated and I wish you both the best with your business. I will certainly point others your way as they need your services.
Thank you so much for the awesome job you did selling Michael's "phase I" items. We were very impressed with how you generated such a good turn out and managed the sale!!! As a former consignment shop owner, I know how much work goes into pricing, staging, advertising and accounting. We really appreciate your hard work! You are truly amazing. Thank you.
Just a big thank you for all the work you and your people did to make the sale a success. All the preparation and then everyone running their tails off for 2 days sure made for a great sale. I'm not sure how many miles Brian and Jenny covered yesterday but they were constantly on the move. Jenny wouldn't even leave late yesterday afternoon until she was sure we were happy with where everything was. It was a pleasure to meet those we hadn't and work with each and everyone of them. Continued success to you!
Thank you again for all you did! We are so grateful for your service. I am glad and was even a bit surprised that the sale made enough to cover the costs of moving it all out of there and the cleaning. Walking into a completely cleared out house was worth every penny!
Thanks again Becky. You can be certain that I will refer you and your company and if I ever need to have an estate sale my own I will use you.
Just received the check and documentation and am very pleased to see you lowered the clean-out costs! Thank you so very much! The closing did, indeed, occur on time and I am finally just down to one house (thank goodness!) This was a great experience! Thanks again, so much!
I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did with my parents' estate sale, liquidation and clean out. I am blown away by your results and the ease (for me) with which it was accomplished. Not having done this before, I had modest expectations. Never did I dream that my parents' "junk" would bring in this much money. Finding myself overwhelmed with the work of clearing out their 50 years worth of belongings within a short time frame, I needed a company that was 'one- stop shopping'. Your full service company covered every phase of the process. I was relieved to find that you did a huge portion of the work for me. It turned an unmanageable task, into an easy job or me. Throughout the process, your professionalism and Brian's, engendered confidence and trust.
I was pleased every step of the way and I would highly recommend your services to anyone. I know that I never could have raised the amount of money which you did; for that I am very grateful. The cherry on top was when I saw how spotless you left the house. Check another task off my list, no more cleaning needed! Many, many thanks for everything.
First: thanks of the sales figures - Wow! More than I had expected. I am hearing wonderful words about you and your team from Cindy L. (the Other Cindy) and neighbors who attended the sale. All speak very highly of your crew's professionalism, manners with the customers - especially their patience, and organization. Everyone is very pleased. I was very happy with the condition of the house after the sale and how much was cleaned up. Your company was the perfect firm for our needs and you did an excellent job! Thank you!
During the past few months, as we prepared our house for sale and juggled all of the time dependent projects to sell our home, arrange an estate auction, transport a car, and arrange a move of our household goods, you knew the demands and stress we incurred. Being a project manager by experience, I had to find people that would get the job done reliably and on time.
Admittedly, almost everyone I found for the myriad of tasks through references and interviews ended up doing an excellent job, however, I wanted to single out you three and thank you for your professional performances and follow-through.
As you well know, at times it was like "herding cats" and the projects required double and triple checking. You never required "chasing." Not only did you keep an eye on the big picture and the important grit details at the same time, you always took care of business and accomplished what you promised exactly when you said it would be done. That is rare in these days and something that a manager must value highly when discovered.
So, Wendy and I thank you for your performance and vindicating our expectations. It allowed us to focus on the loose ends and provide the buyers of our home with the time they wanted to get acquainted with our highly systemized house.
I am a very private person that also deals with confidential work so, I never will register with social networks like FaceBook or LinkedIn. However, I will look for you on Angie's List (great service) and provide you the top-most ratings. Also, should you ever need a reference, I will tell any prospective customer that the only mistake they can make is to not engage your services.
Thank you for being the professionals that you are!
Thank you and your crew for all the work you put into (my sale). This is my first experience in dealing with estate stuff, and it has not been an easy smooth sailing. I appreciate your patience working with me and was pleasure working with you.
Thank you so much for the amazing sale. We are very pleased with the results! We are also impressed with the team's hard work, caring and honesty. Overall, it was a great experience.
Three-day sale went very well. I was definitely happy with this company's efforts. Very professional. Great care with multiples of details. Belongings treated with care. Great with customers. What (Becky) and her team did was truly impressive, plus providing a final accounting.
Thank you Becky, Brian and your team for running such a professional and profitable estate sale for our aunt. Your professional sales staff were a pleasure to work with and left the unit ready for sale. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends and family.
Recently, we were in need of some serious help to do an Estate Sale, so I looked online for a service. From the first moment we spoke to Becky, we knew that they would be the perfect ones to help us. The staff was extremely professional and had advanced customer service skills. They really surprised us constantly with their awesome knowledge of appraising items. We had some pretty bizarre stuff, and they knew exactly what they were doing at all times. They also did not hesitate to help us in any way possible to make life easy on us. They went the extra mile more than once. We feel that they are the best and have more to offer someone than just an helping you with an estate sale. I highly recommend them.
Great job on Mom's sale! Brian was helpful and nice to work with. We've already referred you to several people. We had a full cash offer on Mom's house from someone who saw the sale and the flyer. We cleaned her house this weekend, passed inspection on Sunday, and the buyer is measuring for furniture tonight. Hard to believe it's all happened so fast. Must have been meant to be. Thanks for everything.
Thank you. You and your team did a GREAT job. I would be glad to recommend you to any one. Thank you again.
Want to thank you again for all the work you did. We are very pleased with how you came in and and professionally handled the sale. Your team is, across the board, fabulous. Everyone was so friendly, hard-working, and professional.
Thanks for the great sale. It was so gratifying to go to the house on Sunday and have it be empty and clean.
Just wanted to thank you and your team for the amazing work on the sale. It was a pleasure working with all of you.
Thank you so much for the truly exceptional job you and your crew did with the overflowing contents of my parents’ home. They had lived in the same house for over 50 years, so there were many hidden treasures that you located and highlighted for the sale. My work as a volunteer with Vision House initially introduced me to Girlfriends Estate Services. Everyone I have spoken to has high praises for your integrity, honesty, skilled staff and good business sense. I witnessed all of those, not only in you Becky, but also in your great staff. You all were helpful, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Each person knows exactly what they are doing.
Losing both parents within one year and being left as the sole executor is an overwhelming sea of emotions. It can be a pretty unpopular job carrying out your parents’ wishes. I was overcome with emotion as I handled each item of my parents that had precious memories for me, and although it was hard to turn the house over leaving everything in your hands and not being there during the majority of the sale, it greatly relieved my stress. You and your staff did everything they could to ease me through the process. I felt confident that mom would be proud of the way her treasures were handled and your entire staff showed a great deal of respect for her things, which was very important to me.
I especially appreciate the fact that you priced the items that my brother and I had each set aside, as cherished memories of our parents, on the first day you were at the house, so we could get fair valuations on the sentimental items each of us wanted, and not have to wait until the day of the sale to purchase them.
I have already recommended your services to several of my friends who are struggling with how to honor their parents while selling their parents things. It’s a very emotional experience, and you and your crew are true professionals. If you ever need a reference, please feel free to use my name, or have them contact me at the contact information you have on file for me.
We both observed, separately, that your entire team extended a thoughtful, serving, and kind spirit with everyone with whom you dealt. Although it touched our hearts the most...as we truly needed it it most, we observed your team extended it to all. Your team not only did a remarkable job in pulling together Mom's place in having the estate sale, but you added a pleasant and giving spirit to the work you did. It felt more like an expression of your own kind spirits and more like a mission in serving the needs of others.
We wanted you (and your team) to know we not only noticed it, but were personally touched and blessed by it. Your kindness touched us at a critical time and will be carried in our hearts.
You are in the right business...the right calling.
Thank you for a wonderful sale. June and I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your crew. Please convey our gratitude to all for helping us conduct the Estate Sale. And we are very happy with the spectacular RESULTS of the sale - Wow!!! Again, thanks for your professionalism and good business sense.
I would like to make this message to thank everyone at Girlfriends Estate Sales. Everyone is very helpful and work hard to help resolve any issue that might come up. I would recommend your services to anyone who would be interested. Again thank you very much for all your help and professionalism.
Thanks for a great experience. Both you and Brian are professional and wonderful to work with. We have already recommended you to several people, so you should be hearing from some of them within the next 4 to 6 months and others are looking down the line within the next year. Tell Brian and Joe thank you for their amazing "rescue" of my ukulele. I can’t tell you what it meant to me.
I just looked over at home all the cool things I bought today and have come to the conclusion that everything is GREAT! Thank you so much for hosting such wonderful events! See you next week, and I won’t stray to other companies anymore. Last week, this guy said that he was having a “huge” sale, “the estate sale of my dreams,” I should “rent a van and bring $6,000.” I dragged my husband to this one to help me, and it turned out that the friends and family of the person who’d passed away had been allowed to take “small mementos” before the public was allowed in, but AFTER the pictures had been posted. It was a bait and switch, but I think the organizer didn't mean to be dishonest — he was just inexperienced, and didn't realize that the family and friends would strip the house of virtually every pretty thing. Anyway, I was kind of put out, and I wrote him an email explaining that I didn't think he handled the sale professionally. Also, he let in 36 people all at once, and the scene was chaotic. The prices were absurd for dealers. We had to wait at the jewelry table for the woman to write up the subtotal before moving on with our little jewelry bags. The whole thing was just a disorganized mess, and the selection was horrible. I bought little and missed you and your gang very much. I will definitely see you next week, and thank you again for today’s sale, at which I breathed a sigh of relief.
On behalf of my family, I wish to thank you for the excellent job you did staging my mom’s estate sale. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your professional crew. You took away all my stress and worry, and I was grateful to be able to turn all the responsibilities over to you in setting up and selling my mom’s treasures of a lifetime. I will highly recommend you and your staff to anyone who might need these services. Thank you.
You did a fantastic job on a sale for us in Issaquah a few months ago. I have another house in Bothell that I’m hoping you might be able to help me with this Spring. I’m actually stopping by the Woodinville sale tomorrow to look at something I’m interested in – any chance you’ll be there? I’d love to thank you in person for the Issaquah job and see how your spring schedule looks for the Bothell house. Many thanks!
Thank you very much for all your hard work and effort you put into the sale. I will definitely recommend you if anyone I know has a need. I appreciate you letting me know how it went, and now it's on to selling the house. If it goes as smoothly as this did I will be very happy. You have a tough job and you make others lives better because of what you and your team do. Thank you again.
