Contact us today at 602-899-3400 to have all your questions answered.


Q. Do I need to rent tables, display cabinets or clothes racks?

No, we will bring in tables and display cases.


Q: If the executor lives out of state, can we still have an estate sale and how?

Yes! We handle everything through email, faxing and the post office. If you’re working with a local realtor or with a lawyer, they can be of assistance as well.


Q: What other services do you offer?

We also offer the option of in-house estate auctions and are happy to discuss whether a traditional estate sale or an auction will best serve your needs. 


Q: What should we throw out ahead of time?

You can remove any broken, non-repairable items. Do not throw out usable items even if they are old. We also request you remove any personal paperwork from the residence, such as birth certificates, social security cards, driver’s licenses, passports, military documents, bank statements, pay stubs, medical bills, family photos, prescription drugs, etc.


Q: What happens at the first estate sale planning meeting?

When on site, we assess and determine the feasibility of a sale. This means is we will determine whether there are enough items in the residence and the saleability of your merchandise. This allows us to make an informed decision as to whether an estate sale is in your best interest, or if you should use alternate means to liquidate the contents of your home.


Q: What is your fee for coming to the house and assessing it for an estate sale?

Our initial consultation with you is free of charge.


Q: My family members and I would like to keep certain contents in our house. How should we handle this?

We ask you or your family members remove or tag all items you would like to keep prior to us coming out to assess the estate. This allows us to conduct a thorough assessment of what the sale can bring.


Q: Should we sell our fine jewelry/silver to a pawn or cash for gold store beforehand?

Absolutely not. Pawn and cash for gold businesses give you only a fraction of what your jewelry is worth. You’ll get far more money selling your jewelry and silver at an estate sale rather than selling it at a pawn store or jewelry shop.


Q: There are some items we want to keep, but do not want to remove them from the house. How is this handled?

Any items you would like to keep in the house are secured in a certain room or area of the home and marked as “not for sale”.


Q: When do we begin planning our estate sale

When you contact Diamond Estate Sales & Auctions we will talk with you and get to know your situation and the type of estate we are working with. We will set up a convenient time to meet you or your representative on-site.
