All personal property earns money when the most advantageous market is located.

"With my experience and my long developed network, I can contact the collector, the specialist dealer or museums to reach that desired market," For instance:

  • Kitchenware, linens, tools are easily marketed because everything appeals to someone - landlords, newlyweds, snowbirds, students.

And keep these cautions in mind:

DON'T get an urge to clean it all out You might dispose of valuable documents or items. Would you recognize a "Susan's Tooth" worth $35,000? A $10,000 painting? A Tiffany vase? A rare teapot?

DO dispose of perishable food and all medicine. Claim or disperse recent family photographs and personal papers. Save insurance appraisals and receipts for personal files.
