Definition of an Estate Sale

An estate sale or estate liquidation is a means to dispose of a substantial portion of the materials owned by a person who is recently deceased or who must dispose of his or her personal property to facilitate a move. An estate sale may also take place because of divorce, foreclosure, or relocation.

The presence of a professional liquidator may be necessary because the scope of the process is likely to be overwhelming to the survivors. The liquidator has knowledge and experience with pricing items, and general value knowledge of all types of household goods and personal property value, and the specialist’s experience in disposing of unsold goods in an unsentimental manner after the sale.

What Is an Estate Liquidator?

An estate liquidator is someone who has received training and gained ample experience organizing, pricing and selling a multitude of items. Professional estate liquidators typically have knowledge of antiques, furniture, firearms, automobiles, jewelry, and artwork, and work with consignment shops, appraisers and other vendors to accurately appraise and price each item in order to sell it for a proper price.

About Justin Elliott & Elliott’s Estate Sales

As a young boy, Elliott grew up in his family’s antique mall in Norman, OK, which his Grandma named ‘The Gettin’ Place’. As a youngster, he ran the isles of the antique mall. Elliott grew up dealing in antiques, cars, electronics, jewelry and designer clothing, buying at low prices and selling them at high prices.

He is now the sole owner and chief operations of Elliott’s Estate Sales. Elliott has a strong background in diverse areas and functions including the mortgage industry, finance, real estate, foreclosure and asset liquidation.

Fun Fact

Elliott’s actual name is Justin Elliott but lost his first name in the mix over the years. His friends and his regular shoppers know him as Elliott. Justin was happy to carry on with his last name when he first started his business, but when people became familiar with his company name, they started calling him Elliott.

As a realtor, I am often involved in helping clients who need to make a change. Many times, clients have lost a beloved parent and need some help figuring out the next step. Having Justin and Elliott’s Estate Sales to call on has been the perfect addition to my business. He is courteous, thorough, and moves quickly when needed. I highly recommend this company!

Keller Williams Platinum

We are consolidating two households and decided at the last minute to do an estate sale. I had seen lots of good reviews on Facebook for Elliott’s so gave Justin a call. He was so easy to work with. He arranged for the sale within the week, answered all my questions, set the sale up very nicely, and the sale was successful. I highly recommend Elliott’s!

Former Client

Elliott Estate Sales recently assisted my family with the redistribution of our parent’s personal belongings. It’s not an easy thing to watch those belongings, which were accumulated during 67 years of marriage, walk out the door. Throughout the process and sale Justin and his staff were professional and courteous and sensitive to our feelings.
