In the words of our clients:
"I needed to avail myself of estate sale services when I sold my house and bought a new one with my fiancé. The new house is very modern and requires a completely different aesthetic, so I used this opportunity to purge almost ALL furniture, decor and household items.
Pickersrus came in and handled everything from soup to nuts. In the days leading up to the sale their team came in and sorted/organized, displayed and priced everything. They did this efficiently with minimal disruption. Buying and moving into a new home is stressful and chaotic. Pickersrus HANDLE EVERYTHING, so there was little to no work needed on my part beyond answering questions about certain items. Lori and her team are knowledgeable, responsive, honest and extremely easy to work with. Better yet, the sale went flawlessly and exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough."
"I just finished an Estate Sale organized by PickerRUs and was very pleased with the service and guidance I received from them. It was a last minute Estate Sale, so they came quickly, viewed my Estate, sat with me and answered all my questions and completely explained the ins and outs of the sale.
All my questions were answered not just that day, but everyday until and then through the sale.
I was given updates and assurances as this was my first sale. Everything was taken care of , prices set, all items arranged just so, photographs taken an displayed on the internet, everything cleaned up. They even helped me decide the best way to dispose of any left over merchandise, which was picked up and donated to a thrift shop (a tax deduction).
Overall I was extremely pleased with the PickersRUs and will highly recommend them."

"I went to one of the estate sales and was very pleased with how the Lady’s there were all so friendly and knowledgeable of what they were selling and were more than willing to answer any of my questions. One thing that I noticed was they know how to present the things that they were selling and when they sold one thing they replaced it with something else. Very nice presentation. I got on there mailing list and will be going to more."
"Lori and Mary orchestrated an organized and fun estate sale for us! Even my husband, a pathological penny pincher who will not get rid of a piece of paper was able to purge his hoarded treasures and enjoy the monetary reward. We had them do a second sale for us and we certainly will hire them again for a third!"

"I would like to share my experience in hiring Lori & Mary. With less than a week to close on our family home estate I had to find someone that could assist in getting the job done in a timely fashion. Well I went online and typed in “Estate Sales” which led me to a website that had a list of many so I posted my request. One of the first responses I received was from these women and they asked when does the closing of the home occur. I told them the 15th of April and they told me that they are the ones that could get the job done and came the next morning at 11am to access the job. I love their energy, passion, and spirit – these ladies are amazing and love what they do. They even helped with hiring Salvation Army to get the remaining items left over from the sale. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. They are absolutely the best and took away all of the stress that I was facing of selling our family home that was owned since 1966."

"I obtained information about the Estate sale off of the Internet so it made me feel vulnerable. I had to place my trust in an unknown entity. Right from the start Mary’s voice was calming and soothing. She called me right away. I felt I was in good hands.
For me it was a very emotional process. It was very hard to sell my parent’s possessions. There were so many memories in their house. The process went very smooth. They were organized and systematic. They really know their business well especially with pricing on where to sell what. If they were not sure they researched it.
They helped walk me through it every step of the way. The ladies are very honest, kind and compassionate. You can tell they have a real love for the Estate business. It involves a lot of hard work but they tackled it and got the job done."
"Thank you so much for taking care of our estate sale. I saw how hard you guys worked and I just wanted you to know that we appreciated it. You made a very difficult time in my life so easy and from the beginning took charge and I did not have to worry about anything from pricing the items, without you many things would of just been thrown away, to setting up the house for the sale and finally the most wonderful thing making arrangements to give to charity anything that did not sell. I was really amazed at how much you knew about my mother’s things and how much the things were worth. The personal touch and the care you took with everything was another piece that was so appreciated. That I could trust and just leave this whole process up to you is something that I will be forever grateful for and if I am ever in this position again you will be who I call for help without a doubt. Take care and thank you so much again for all you did."
"Moving is stressful, so when I sold my house and planned to move out of the country, I knew I needed someone to help me with the sale of all the things I could not take along.
Lori came recommended by my realtor. At our first meeting I was impressed by her energy and her keen eye and I liked the way she explained what she was planning to do. I was more than happy to give the job over to her and not worry about all that is involved in setting up and dealing with a sale like this.
At the second meeting pictures were taken of all items for sale.The event was scheduled for a three day weekend. Lori spread the word on every channel and website imaginable. I left the pricing of most items up to her although she checked with me to make sure it was agreeable. The week before the sale she came with her crew and started organizing the layout, posting signs and closing off areas in the house that were off limits. The three day sale went off without a hitch and the result was excellent. I did not have to be there and was happy not to have to get involved. For me it was a stress free situation. At the end, Lori and her crew cleaned up and left house and garden in great condition. I received a receipt on all the sales and had the check in the mail within a couple of days. I have to highly recommend Lori for a job well done. She is a hard worker, honest, reliable, very efficient and sure knows her stuff. If you ever need someone for an estate sale Lori is the one to call. Thank you Lori!"
"We finally got through it, and it wasn’t so hard. You were very easy to work with, low key and not up tight. We enjoyed the variety in your family crew and the effort put forth. Thanks for the long sale exposure for the many items we had move out and the sales results. The return exceeded many estimates and we are very satisfied with how we came out, and felt that we were treated very fairly. Looking forward to having you help us out with our next move. Sincerely, The Lido Estate!"
"When looking for an estate sales company, unless you know the people, you really are taking a leap of faith in turning over all of the possessions you and your family have to perfect strangers.
When I emailed this company, I received a call and instantly knew that this was the right company to select. Lori and her crew knew this was a difficult process for us, but she took full control and assured us that she would research prices for collectibles, and she did. Once we handed her the keys, we knew exactly what she planned and she met all expectations. Wow, when the sale was done, she left the house clear and neat. She made this a great experience for us and I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Thank you Lori and team!"
"I cannot recommend Lori Cerasoli and her team highly enough. They were recommended to me by a real estate agent who had noticed their professional work at local estate sales; I was grieving from the loss of both parents in a short time, had their entire household of over 60 years to sort through, and wasn’t in any state to do this myself.
Lori was thorough, communicative, and gentle with both the belongings and me in my grief. The team understood that they were delving into my parent’s lives in a very personal way and did so with confidentiality and carefulness. Lori accesses assistance from historians, teachers, artists, electronics gurus and “muscle” to assess, sort, organize and move items. Lori and her team were able to retrieve significant profit on items I would have thrown out and worked very quickly. Some items obviously needed to be discarded, but most was sold, recycled or donated to worthy organizations including clothing bank, food banks, and durable medical equipment which went to a local hospital for their indigent patients. I had a good feeling about the outcome and when all was said and done, I was able to focus on my parents and not on their belongings; I did zero work. I recommend Lori and her team unconditionally and would hire her again in a heartbeat".
