Our family is enormously grateful to Kristin Bertilson and her team at Queen B Organizing for their assistance in preparing, advertising, and conducting our family’s estate sale. Kristin’s experience, perspective, and connections were invaluable and her positive, seemingly boundless energy made her great to work with. Kristin offered helpful advice, when requested, but deferred to our family to make final decisions. Kristin was infinitely patient with us, supportive, and flexible in implementing our wishes. Kristin is exceptionally well-organized and communicates well with both her clients and her team members. Kristin was very accessible and quick to respond to questions and concerns by phone, email, and text.
Kristin and her wonderful team of “super-sorters” were sensitive, kind, respectful, hardworking, and efficient. They cleaned, organized, and artfully staged and re-staged items, throughout the three days of the estate sale, to maximize their appeal and value.
Throughout the process there was great attention to detail in researching items, advertising, and describing them to the public. During the pricing process, Kristin consulted with other professionals specializing in antiques, art, silver, jewelry, instruments, and books to determine and confirm appropriate values for these items. Kristin’s reputation for quality work has enabled her to develop a large network of contacts which served us very well in terms of sales and attendance. Creative, detailed, enthusiastic advertising in the local paper, Craigslist, and through email, to Kristin’s contacts, also generated interest in the sale and increased attendance.
The logistics of the sale itself were well-organized with special attention to the coordination of staffing, traffic flow, and parking.
We found the costs associated with our family’s estate sale, and Queen B Organizing’s services, to be very reasonable and felt that we got a great return and value for our investment. We would be pleased to recommend Kristin Bertilson and the services of Queen B Organizing in the highest terms, and without reservation, to anyone in search of professional and high quality estate sale assistance.
