About Estate Sales

Estate sales involve liquidating the contents of a home as quickly as possible (usually over 1-3 days). We clean, reorganize, stage, and price the whole whole home, and then conduct the sale. It is similar to a retail environment, but quicker paced with the freedom to create and innovate.

We’re looking for great people to join our team. This job requires you to learn quickly, stay on your toes, and chat with customers about all things thinkable. This is a very active job-- you will be on your feet most of the day. Some lifting and carrying of furniture and household items is involved. Our teams makes each of our sales look amazing and makes the sale day experience the best it can be for customers. They help with the initial cleaning and set up, along with retail on sales day. After initial training, team-members should be comfortable working collaboratively and self-identifying tasks. Responsibilities include.

  • Staging the home: This includes moving furniture and individual items (clothes, dishes, books, etc.) to appropriate locations in the home.  Sorting and grouping similar items. For example, if we find office supplies in four different areas of the house they would pull them all together in one location.   

  • Salesperson: Working the sale days is also an important function of this position. Being helpful and courteous to all customers is a must! Sales-techs are expected to help customers locate items, carry items, put items on hold, and offer to grab shoppers a basket (or take a full basket to the sold shelves). Always have a smile and always make your presence known.
