Here is What Our Customers Say!

After doing extensive research and several rounds of interviews, I decided to trust Jan and Marv with the task of conducting an estate sale at my mother's house. Having completed all aspects of the sale, I can say without reservation that my trust was well placed

The challenge they took on was complex and difficult.. A large occupied house filled with an assortment of items demanding both attention to detail and logistical know-how. From the start they proved that they were up to the task.  They worked long demanding hours in order to properly assess, sort and set up items for sale. And when the sale came they showed themselves adept at managing a large operation while providing a compelling shopping experience, ably covering both customer service and security.

Jan, Marv and all the other members of the crew were professional, hard working, knowledgeable, scrupulous and personable.  As a business owner myself, I am well aware of the value these virtues hold.  The quality of the team Jan and Marv assembled does not happen by accident, and is a testament to their expertise and personal integrity.

Just a note to thank you and your fantastic crew. You guys did an incredible amount of work in a very short amount of time. You generated a lot of money-much more than I thought possible. You were very positive, organized, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Thanks for everything!

Hi Jan & Marv,

The "Best By Far" team went above and beyond in preparing for my parents estate sale. Their friendliness and accomadating demeaner took much of the stress off of me. I could not be more impressed by the amount of traffic during the sale. Their advertising techniques definitely work--as cars came in droves. The end result was a complete success, and I owe it all to Jan & Marv and their exceptional team!!!

--Having an estate sale after a divorce, move and sale of a home proved to be a far less intimidating experience with Jan and her staff.. My “lifetime of treasures” were handled with loving care by everyone. The staff listened while I lovingly shared memories and stories about some items.

The customer following ...was huge. I watched in awe as customers knew the way an estate sale worked and was particularly impressed by the number of staff available on sale days to keep order in my home.

The cleanout after the sale was probably the best money I ever spent. The house was in perfect order for my home’s closing. The Accountability with sales, donations of items afterwards, along with the honesty in reporting all the proceeds left me with a highly Professional image of Jan and her crew. 

 The “awful” experience of moving through my life’s transitions proved to be an extraordinarily loving and beautiful experience.

From the bottom of a most grateful heart……THANK YOU

--My sister and I recently held an estate sale with Jan. The sale was in our childhood home and Jan made an overwhelming and emotional task very manageable. They cleaned out, organized and did a very thorough job of researching mom and dad’s unique items. Their business is very organized, they were attentive to detail and very nice to work with. The MOST WONDERFUL THING was the totally cleaned out house when we returned. You can’t go wrong with these ladies.
