We want to
thank you, Carl and your team for the friendly and professional handling of our
estate sale items. Pickup went so smoothly and from then on, we were
freed from our concerns about managing that major piece of our move to a new
home. Photos posted on your web page displayed several of our pieces to
great advantage, and we were happy that so many items sold. Thank you
also for sending us a donation receipt to a non-profit
organization for the items that didn't sell.
It was a pleasure to work with you and we will recommend you to anyone we know who may be moving.

I'm writing to thank you for the outstanding job you did organizing and running our estate sale in January. We were "over the moon" with the results. Our profits far exceeded expectations, but more importantly, we were impressed with how professionally and sensitively you and your team handled our treasures.
Downsizing is difficult...and parting with so many things that evoke happy memories may be the hardest part. Knowing that our items were carefully displayed and sold or donated (and didn't end up in a landfill) has made the move easier.
Congratulations on another successful sale. With warm regards, Cynthia and Alan J. 1/2016
We cannot thank you and your team enough for the thoroughly professional yet personal service you put into our estate sale.
You provided us with everything you said you would do and more. All greatly appreciated.
Lynne & Jerry L.
First of all, huge compliment to Cole. He is fantastic! Professional, kind, efficient and definitely ran a tight ship today. It was a pleasure working with him to wrap things up.
Beyond the sale, it was more important to us that our mom would have been proud of how everything was displayed and cared for. A few of her friends stopped by the sale and each called to let me know my mom would have been very pleased. She was a very vibrant person and truly loved her home, her art and her furniture, so thank you for treating everything with such care and dignity. This is a hard chapter to close and we greatly appreciated your help.
Best to you and your great team.

You are really the “Queen” of estate sales. Thank you so much for taking on the sale at our home. At the last minute during the cold, Christmas season. All your organizational skills and hard work are very much appreciated by me and my family.
Thank you, again for the wonders you performed.
What a fabulous job you did for us! We are very, very delighted! Your experience plus knowledge suggested to us you were not only sensible but very profitable!
If I bump into someone who needs guidance like you provided to us, I’ll give you a 5 star rating.
Most pleased, we are,
Isabel & Chuck Himeloch
Robin and Carl,
Please know that Mark, Darlene and Cole
were so very helpful with our predicament today. The man we hoped would
move our purchase from
Jan rented a truck at 4pm and with the help of COLE, Darlene and Mark we managed to get our 2 beautiful white chairs from your sale location, very late in the afternoon.
We thank you for hiring such fine, courteous and helpful staff.
Please extend our thanks to Cole for schlepping, tying and tending to our pick up as I could not make it. Darlene helped us protect the WHITE chairs as Jan left our furniture blankets in her car at Home Depot and Mark hung tight for us and dealt with our wacky mover.
YOU are the premiere estate sale marketer and provide the most value to your customers of all others. Only hope someone like you is in business when we liquidate our collection of furnishings and other high value home decor.
Thanks so much!!!
M & J Sockness
Dear Robin & Staff,
Mark and I can't thank you enough for the incredible job you did at our estate sale! You operate a top notch business comprised of professionalism, respect and above all honesty! You and your staff created a beautiful showing of our pieces and poured your heart into the sale (making fair decisions and helping others as well). We were blown away with your detailed paperwork accounting for every piece down to the last penny as well as your community service; your donation truck to help those in the inner city! Kudos to you all and what you do! May you continue to your success operating an honest and professional service while helping those around you!
Sincerely & with gratitude,
Dr. M & L Kohn
I want to thank you for the estate sale web site. I really like it.

I wanted to compliment you and your
staff on the estate sales you hosted in
S.R. May 2013
I have to compliment you on the outstanding job you did for my parent’s estate sale. Your professionalism was obvious from the minute you came to the house to evaluate their belongings. I had interviewed other companies and no one knew their value of items like you did.
I was not present at the sale as it was impossible for me to travel back with work. I knew I could trust you completely and that the sale would be a complete success. I heard that there were almost 500 people each day.
I was amazed at the pictures and the way you set up the things to look so appealing. You left the house spotless and sold almost everything.
I will recommend you for years to come and wish you would bring your business to the Chicagoland area.
I was so pleased that our attorney and friend Aubrey Tobin recommended you because you really are a gem.
Thank you again for your kindness, honesty, and professionalism.
Sheryl A. April 2013
I only go to your estate sales. You are
far and away the best at what you do. Always amazing......
Rob and I want to thank you for the extraordinary job you did with our estate sale. From the initial consultation to the final clean-up you were courteous, professional, patient, and incredibly successful. Thank you again and again.
L & R Goudsmit January, 2013
Thanks for writing. It
was a wonderful sale today; you always have the best sales! I just need to stop
going to the other sales. All
of your workers are kind and wonderful. Some sales that I go to, the items are not priced and YOU always have everything priced and
in perfect condition. Sorry that I did not get the coat for my Mother. She said she did not want to get one unless she tried it on
first, but I do appreciate you helping me.
JIM January, 2013
Thank you for sending me the list. This was the best way to handle our move and you made it easy for us. Thank you for your help.
I will recommend you to our friends.
I cannot say enough positive things about Robin and her crew. From the first time we met, to receiving our final summary and check, they conducted themselves with a thoroughness and professionalism that seems almost nonexistent in the world today.
We were impressed in particular with the following things:
1) The simplicity of their contract;
2) The respectful, thoughtful, and artistic way they staged and organized all the items to be sold;
3) The complete accounting of all merchandise sold;
4) The professional way everything was organized - we didn't have to search for answers to our questions about our items and how they were handled;
5) The fair and knowledgeable way in which she priced the items.
The days of the sale, Robin covered all carpets and marked and labeled everything clearly. She had enough helpers walking around the house to ensure security, and had smaller items carefully guarded to avoid theft.
My mother had to clean her house out completely, and we really do not know how we would have managed this on our own. Robin exceeded our expectations and we will happily and wholeheartedly recommend AOMestatesales to anyone who wants a successful, well managed, and profitable estate sale.
I got your check in the mail today and I can only say WOW! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. You were organized and efficient and I truly appreciate it.
S.B. January 2012
We are happy with the outcome! We could have never done it ourselves for sooo many reasons! You were the 4th person we interviewed and you presented yourself so well! We made the right choice. We never would have guessed the gross sales, crazy! Thanks for tracking our Mom’s sales separate. I’ll recommend you to others.
D. P. January 2012
Thank you, and Yes, indeed, we were more than satisfied with your handling of the sale and while I think this is our last move, we would recommend you to anyone.
F & J Buesser August 2011
Dear Robin and Staff
The purpose of this note is to let you know how grateful I am to your company for providing me with the support I needed to make my moving transition a smooth one. Each one of your staff was so kind, positive and compassionate. Your professionalism was exemplary. Your pricing of things to be sold was appropriate and based on your research and experience.
From the initial meeting where the contract was signed till the text message letting me know you were leaving in 5 minutes I was confident and felt you were in control every step of the way. You welcomed my presence and respected my thoughts as we made decisions about things to be left in the sale and pricing. You were sensitive as my emotional attachment evolved and I made last minute decisions about items to be included in the sale.
As you staged the sale I was in awe of the beautiful placing of artwork and furniture in a way that showcased my home. I was proud to have customers attending the sale.
Leaving my home in the condition I wanted to would have been impossible without your help. I was proud as I turned my home over to the new owners. It truly was a reflection of me.
With Sincere Appreciation
Wanted you to know I received the
packet yesterday and was so impressed with your inventory and
explanation. It was an honor to work with you and I knew the moment I met
you at the first estate sale I attended that you were honest and well qualified.
I feel fortunate to have chosen you and wanted to pass that thought along.
Yesterday I did some unpacking and found a Hibel that I bought at one of your sales. It is a favorite of mine.
Good luck to you and I certainly will miss going to your sales. They were always so much fun, looking at things and even the houses. Nothing fun like that around here.
Take care.....BB 3/11
Words cannot express my deep appreciation & gratitude for doing my mom’s estate sale. I am so impressed with your expertise and professional style. You were such a pleasure to work with – kind, patient, & caring. You made a difficult time much easier to manage.
Thank you so much for going back to the condo for us to get the wall units and remaining items the buyers didn’t want. That was
so nice & helpful of you! You saved me a lot of grief & time. Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you again for all your hard work, time, energy & help. It was a very successful sale, & I’m so pleased!
I hope to see you at one of your sales in the future. Thank you so much, Robin. You are the Best!
Thank you for sending the receipts and the cd, it was fun going through all that and we certainly enjoyed seeing the pictures.
It was my pleasure to have met you and your staff and to see what a great job you all do when you take on a job. From the first day to the last you took over and transformed our home, protected the carpets and cleaned up after everything was out of the house and left it as though nothing had transpired there. I have to admit I think I could have stayed in
I told my realtor that should anyone inquire
about estate sales, to be sure and refer them to you. Thank you and your
staff for your hard work (going to the back yard with all that snow piled high
and carrying all that furniture) and still keeping a smile.
EY, (February 2011)
My deepest gratitude to you and your lovely staff for conducting the estate sale on August 20 & 21, 2010. You were my savior! Mrs. B. and I were really impressed with the set up of the estate sale conducted by you and your team. The organized sale indeed had a great turn out; all because of you!
Acting as the Power of Attorney/Caregiver, I was so grateful to have had your name referred to me as a lady who gets the job done! Your professionalism, attentiveness, and knowledge made our estate sale a success! I truly thank you on behalf of Mrs. B. and myself. It was indeed a pleasure working with you, and I have referred your service to the elders I continue to provide care to! I hope to see you at some of your future estate sales!
Wishing you a safe and blessed 2010

Thank you again for your great work at our mom’s estate sale. Your hard work and professionalism did not go unnoticed. We certainly will recommend you to anyone we know needing your services.
CS (March 2010)
I write to thank you for the work you did in handling the disposal of my mother’s household furnishings following her death in late July of this year. My family was overwhelmed with grief and at the same time had to face the dismantling of her condominium after it quickly sold in late September – just 14 days after we had put it on the market. In the property listing, we had promised immediate occupancy to the buyer, but were caught unprepared when the closing date was arranged within two weeks of the sale.
Your company was able to arrange an
We especially appreciated that your company left the condominium spotless after the sale, including placing plastic sheeting on the floors (on the first sale day we had a rain storm and we didn’t have to worry about visitors soiling the carpet), sweeping and vacuuming the floors after the sale, putting the garbage out for pickup on garbage day and arranging for a charity to pick up whatever did not sell.
You took care of everything for us. We had no duties or responsibilities once you and your crew took over and nothing to worry about.
Thank you, for your quick response and for the efficient and professional way you conducted the sale.
Patricia B. (October 2009)
Just to let you know how much we appreciate all of the work that you did for our estate sale. You and Carl and the rest of your staff were so great to work with and so very professional at every step. We feel very lucky to have chosen your company to handle the sale. We had many nice comments from visitors of the sale about how carefully things were displayed and sold.
We are hoping that having the house for sale at the same time will get people interested in the wonderful lakeside setting we experience every day. Keep your fingers crossed.
We are very happy with the way things turned out.
Pat & Stuart T. (August 2009)
Thank you for your kind words, I do enjoy your sales. By far you put on the most professional, clean and extremely organized sales that I ever attend! And of course, you are always so willing and happy to assist your customers with anything. Thanks again and see you at the next one.
Dawn (September 2009)
Just a note of thanks for all your work.
What you were able to do and accomplish for us went far beyond
our estate sale objectives. Thank you for all your concern to be
both professional and honorable in your dealings. You deservedly
earned your just commission and are a great example to any
who wish to see true business professionalism.
I wish you the best in all your dealings and once again - Thank You
and may God bless you.
Sincerely and appreciatively yours,

To Whom It May Concern:
Honest, hardworking, knowledgeable. These are the words that led me to Robin Cohen and her staff at Antiques on Main Estate Sales.
I was in a region I was not familiar with. I was in a circumstance I had never experienced, unexpected hospice soon followed by death. My head was spinning with the thought of having to close this estate in a very short amount of time. I was away from my home and children. I had the fear of losing a job if I stayed away too long. I knew I couldn’t come back. Grieving seemed to take a backseat.
As I spoke to
Robin answered my telephone call the same day. She made an appointment and came to meet with me the following day. Robin stated in a clear concise manner what she and her staff could do to help me when I was ready. She demonstrated the utmost respect for my situation.
Robin and her team arrived on time each day and often worked 12 hour days. They knew the answer to any questions I had, from township guidelines to places to eat!
Robin and her team had a rhythm to their work. Each player had a part. Research, staging, prepping, and set up. Everyone was pleasant and highly respectful of the situation in which they worked. The home took on a new life and the sale was flawless. I was able to travel back home with the peace of mind that I had done my best.
I would highly recommend Antiques on Main Estate Sales.
With much appreciation,
I really appreciate all of your hard work!!! I will recommend you to everyone!!! You are FABULOUS!!! And such a pleasure to deal with.
Just wanted to say you guys are amazing. You do such a nice job setting these Estate sales together and are always so friendly and helpful. On another note, might I suggest that when "taping" prices if there is another alternate way, as sometimes when I go to take the tape off it is on solid and rips the paint or paper off of the item, just sharing my concern. Thanks for listening and again.
Thanks for ANOTHER GREAT
I received your letter with the list of items sold and the very nice check, making me both impressed and appreciative of your ability to sell these items at substantial prices. It's comforting to think that our former family possessions are now in places where they will be taken good care of.
My life here at Timber Ridge in
Thanks again for your efforts.
Just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how much
I love your estate sale advertising. I look every week and see them all...and yours are above and beyond everyone else's.
You do a fantastic job...with the pics too !!!
Have a wonderful day...see you soon :)
Dear Antiques on
My husband and I discovered the joy of estate sale shopping a couple of years ago. Since then, we have decorated our home with so many unique and beautiful items that we would never have been able to afford from a retail shop. Who would want to anyhow! Family and friends tell us our home looks like it belongs in a magazine or they feel like they are on a movie set.
Many of our treasured
items have been purchased from your estate sales. We try not to miss an estate
sale by Antiques on
I also love the fact that I am getting expert advice from you, unlike most other estate sales that we have been to. I know you are knowledgeable and honest about your items. I just wanted to say thank you! I can see that all of you work very hard at what you do and I wanted to tell you that someone out here notices your efforts and truly appreciates them. See you at the next sale!
The package with all the information about the estate sale and the proceeds check arrived via DHL Express delivery on Thursday of this week. It's an impressive amount of information you assembled and I do appreciate the records of all those many items we once owned.
your instructions I was able to access and print copies of the sale
announcement posted on the estatesales.net website with its 99 photographs
of the house contents. - Good photos, nicely presented.
I wanted to tell you that I am very pleased with the estate sale and have great admiration for your capability, resourcefulness and hard work. You more than earned your portion of the proceeds. I also have admiration for the support given by your husband and sons. It's a wonderful family you have.
Bill W. October 2008 (Franklin)
In regards to your sale this past weekend, I was there on Saturday and Sunday and I am writing to thank you for having the sale. YOU and all of your workers are so nice and kind. It was wonderful to find every item with a price tag on it. I did not have to go and ask, like the sales that another estate sale company has. Thanks again and I wish I had more money with me. I would have bought a few more things that I wanted. If you have some type of mailing list, I would sure like to be on it for your next sale. Thanks again for having your sale. I sure appreciate all of your kindness and helpful workers, especially the nice young man with the dark hair that was writing things up on Sunday afternoon. He was so patient with me because I was so concerned if I had enough money and he was so kind about it.

Robin Cohen is nothing short of amazing!
My parent’s condo sold in
Days later, she arrived punctually to view my parent’s condo. She looked at everything; from the garage to the lower level, researched specific signed items for pricing, asking for any concerns or questions which I may have and said she would love to do this sale. Believe me, I was the more excited one to have found her! I loved her staff; they were all so very kind, honest and hard working. The way Robin staged the condo with all the priced items was spectacular. All crystal was washed, linens folded and starched and silver polished and all displayed in such lovely shelving units. It really looked better than I ever remembered… sorry mom. Robin completely transformed my parent’s condo.
At the end of the 3-day sale, left over goods were itemized and donated to a wonderful charity that Robin contacted. It felt good knowing all of my parent’s possessions were being recycled if you will to help others. The entire condo was vacuumed and swept clean at the end of the sale. Robin typed out in detail what was donated along with the charity’s receipt. Post sale a large envelope arrived in the mail containing the numbered receipts listing the purchase price people paid, digital photos were also taken prior to the sale and were included in my package along with my check. It was all so well executed from the beginning to the end.
It is truly without hesitation that I am recommending Robin Cohen of AOM ESTATE SALES to do your estate sale or act as your professional appraiser- you will enjoy her vivacious personality and respect her knowledge.

“Once again, I love how you are advertising your sales!!! You have definitely left your competition in the dark ages!! I wanted to tell you how much I love that you share pictures of some of the contents of the home that is for sale. I am inquiring about the rugs you mention. I am still looking and trying to find a non machine made oriental rug. Can you share any information on them with me? Thanks!”

“I really think you have the best estate sales. The prices are fair; you are knowledge and most of all PLEASANT, which I can certainly say is not true for all the other estate sales companies.”
Ingrid H. August 2007
“Thanks for putting the fun back into estate sales.
I want to commend you on the way you conduct your estate sales. Your e-mails that give the times, location and a summary of the items entice people to attend. Your sales are clean, very well organized and your fair prices are clearly displayed.
Your staff is pleasant and helpful. Additionally, having the young men who help carry our purchases is a plus.”
