Summit Estate Sales is an incorporated, insured and bonded professional estate sale service located in the Kansas City area. Our knowledgeable staff of sellers with more than 20 years experience share our goal to maximize your estate sales profits by increasing the exposure and demands for your personal property, antiques, and collectibles. We offer a wide spectrum of selling and marketing programs catered to your specific estate sale.
Dealing with someone's estate is a very PERSONAL matter, and we treat every prospective client with the upmost level of respect, dignity, and with trust. Releasing an estate of lifetime memories and personal collectibles can be a very difficult decision. Besides the liquidation of an entire estate, we offer our services to people who are in the process of downsizing or moving to another location. There is no charge or obligation for our estate sales consultations, and we encourage your phone calls and emails if you have any questions and seek knowledge on the dispersal of your estate. One word of advice- Do not throw anything out. As the old adage goes: "One man's trash is another man's treasure".
Summit Estate Sales offers a wide range of estate sale plans ranging from traditional estate "tag" sales for entire estates to consignment and internet auction services for individually appraised items. As professional antique dealers since 1987, we understand the importance of developing selling and marketing strategies to ensure your estate sale is well represented to the selling public. We consider our knowledgeable and loyal buyers as important as the clients we represent, and we utilize this web site to flag our growing list of subscribers to our upcoming estate sales. Once your sale is completed, the few items remaining belong to you-not us. We help coordinate with liquidators, auctioneers, and charity organizations-whichever way the estate wishes those items to be disposed. We do not own an antique shop as we feel that is a conflict of interest with the selling of your estate.
