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 Estate Sale only days after I contacted you. Your crew came into the condominium, arranged and displayed all items, determined the prices, put pictures of everything on your website and conducted the sale just days before our closing required us to vacate the premises.
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.

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.

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 residents of Michigan during my stay I kept hearing the same remarks about Robin and Antiques on Main Estate Sales. Honest, hardworking and knowledgeable. No other agency received these praises from so many.
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,
Raleigh, North Carolina
Thanks so much!!!
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 SALE!
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 Issaquah, WA continues to be wonderful - so many interesting people to socialize with, activities every day and excellent food.
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 Main,
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 Main and AOMestatesales.com! We have learned that your sales are THE best sales to attend! Most often, estate sales are disorganized, over-priced and the items are dirty and grimy. There have been many times we have been in a home where some of the rooms look like a garbage dump. I always know that when I am going to an estate sale by Antiques on Main, the people that operate it have gone over every single item and have cleaned and organized it better than most department stores do. NEVER have I found something that is just thrown to the side or piled up in a corner. It is a pleasure to view the items in your sales. Your company displays everything beautifully and the people that work your sales are always so nice and friendly.
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.
Following 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.

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 North Wabeek and an estate sale was indicated. It was by good fortune Robin was holding a sale nearby and I happened to stop in. I looked at how she priced all the personal property, displayed items , her staff and the organization which everything was carried out in was truly noteworthy. I at that point knew I would love to do business with her.
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.

“Robin, I just wanted to write you to tell you that you're fabulous, and a life saver!
After we had that disastrous first estate sale, we didn't know what to do. As you know, most of the furniture and smalls were left. My husband was devastated (for his father) and I was sick about the horrible job the first guy did. The house was trashed!
We didn't know what we were going to do with all of the 'stuff', we couldn't tell my 93 year old father in law that no one liked his stuff. I decided to call you and see if you would help us sell the rest, even though we (mistakenly) didn't use you as our first choice estate sale person. When I called, you were so unbelievably gracious and kind. You came out that evening to see what we were dealing with...........you couldn't believe what had transpired, and there on the spot you promised to help us find good homes for the rest of the stuff. When you said you would have a 1 day sale the following Saturday, we were so relieved we could have cried. It worked out so perfectly! You sold 99% of the remaining contents, and got great prices for everything. Not to mention, you left the house spotless, and even waited at the house for the few donated items to be picked up. Which was great for us, since we live in Indiana and no one else could have been there. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated all of your help, you were truly a life saver!
You were such a mench about everything...................you are terrific, I wish I lived there so I could tell everyone about you.
When I am ready for an estate sale here in Indy, I hope I can talk you into coming here!
Take care and thank you again...sooo much”

P.S. “It's all true! Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Robin, I wanted to thank you again for all the hard work you did for the estate sale at my Mom’s. It was a difficult situation for me and you took care of everything! I have recommended you to many! Thank you so much”

“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.”
