Tag Sale/Estate Sale: The most common reason for an estate sale is the death of the property owner, and the consequent need to quickly liquidate the deceased's belongings. The survivors may have no interest in the bulk of the personal belongings left by the deceased, or may simply lack space to keep the belongings. In situations in which the survivors cannot agree to the disposition of tangible property, a court may order the goods to be sold in an estate sale with the proceeds to be divided among the survivors. Such a sale and division may also be mandated in the will of the deceased.
An estate sale may also occur because the property owner will be moving or has moved into a situation where he will be unable to keep his property—for example, a move to an assisted living facility, a retirement community, a rest home, or other living quarters.

I highly recommend Austin Capital Estate Sales as an excellent estate sale company with a lot of experience. Their personal care and their open communication allowed me to trust that they would treat my mother's home as if it were their own and that they would work to her the best price possible for her belongings.
Wow what a load off my mind. They were miracle workers. This great team worked tirelessly to come twice to my home and load up years of treasures to move to an off site sale as consignment. We could;t have been more happy with the results of the sale and the peace of mind of it all going to someone that might enjoy it as well.
We highly recommend ACES if you are planning an estate sale. Larry and Marietta were honest, sincere and very pleasant to work with and so was the rest of the ACES staff. They did a great job for us, and we are thankful to them.
Austin Capital Estates Sales truly went above and beyond to help us the best they could. I can't imagine if we had tried to do it all on our own, and readily recommend them to anyone that might be looking into estate sale services!
We did not wait long to receive the check for the items sold. The best part was opening the envelope to see what we had made in the 3 day sale. We could not have asked for a better estate sale agent. All I can say is that we were shocked at how much had made. It was a pleasure working with Marietta, Larry, Erin, and meeting Zorro, their precious dog.
Their knowledge of organizing and conducting a successful estate sale was impressive. They took on what we saw as a huge task that we were dreading, and very efficiently, almost magically so, completed exactly as promised. They dealt with all the neighborhood regulations and permitting and kept all the neighbors happy throughout.
Their personal care and their open communication allowed me to trust that they would treat my mother’s home as if it were their own and that they would work to get the best price possible for her belongings.
