"Canterbury Estate Sales provided a professional and much needed service to me and my family when it came time to bid farewell to years and years of collectibles, furniture, tools, kitchen items, and antiques that had been collected in our house over the course of a lifetime. They evaluated and priced each item individually and fairly, and did all the advertising needed to make the sale a complete success. Payment was prompt, received just two days after the close of the sale, and even included a detailed accounting of the selling price of each item for my records. Unsold items were removed from the house and donated to local charities on my behalf. The house was left clean and well organized. I highly recommend Canterbury's services." Sonja R. June 2017
"Thank you so much for all the work you and staff did. We could never have done that ourselves. We are so grateful for your honesty and professionalism in handling this difficult job. Thanks again for all you've done! Several months ago you said you'd make it as painless as possible and you really did!" Nancy & Art January 2017
"I would like to thank Beth and her crew for the very professional way they handled the estate sale. Not being local to the area made us a little worried about how this process would be accomplished. We met Beth for a walk through of the house and from that point on we knew she was both capable and experienced enough to handle what every came up. Communication throughout the process was exceptional and they forwarded the remaining personal items to us that we had missed. All in all a Canterbury Estate Sales provided a complete service from evaluation to setup to the sale and cleanup afterwards. Nice work, Thanks!"

"I want you to know how very much I and my family appreciated your help in liquidating my father’s estate. You clearly explained to us what, when and how things would happen, and then you executed, professionally, punctually and successfully, (we had no idea how much hard work goes into accomplishing an estate sale). It was a great relief to us to just turn everything over to you. Besides all that, you are delightful to work with. Many people noted how well things were organized. I don’t need to recommend you to them for their future needs, but I would. Thanks for everything."
"You did a wonderful job with our Estate Sale - we certainly were impressed. Number one you waited patiently until we knew that the house was sold - it was a long wait but you did it and when we were ready you stepped right up to it and did a fantastic job. We were extremely happy the way things worked out. I am so glad the way things did work out and very happy with the results - we were completely happy with the proceeds from the sale. Thank you for all you did - so, again, thanks.
"After our father passed away, my sister and I were left with the task of cleaning out our childhood home and our parents' possessions. This was a daunting task as we live in Georgia and Florida. Beth came over to appraise the situation and the home on a holiday and immediately put our minds at ease. She and Sabine sent photos over the next couple of weeks documenting their progress in organizing and preparing for the estate sale. Trusting strangers with our childhood memorabilia was never an issue - contact was often and pertinent, providing great comfort to us so far away. Upon finding some items that we may have overlooked as emotional ties or valuable, they contacted us and sent them to us rather than assuming they should be sold. After speaking with another company who spoke of the house negatively, we were delighted to work with such a professional pair who worked so hard to garner a great sale at a fair price and donated to community services what could not be sold."

"Canterbury Estate Sales did a wonderful job of handling an estate sale for me after my folks passed away. Beth and Sabine were well organized and they worked efficiently with very little guidance from me. I gave them a key to my home and access to the internet so that they could work while I was away. I found them to be completely trustworthy. They kept me informed of their progress throughout the preparation and sale. I received my payment a few days after the sale ended. They were really pleasant to work with and their professionalism helped to ease a stressful point in my life. I would certainly go to them again."
"We live 600 miles from Virginia and identified Canterbury Estate Sales via an internet search. We met Beth and Sabine during one of our visits to Virginia and were immediately impressed with their enthusiasm. We contacted references who provided common themes of business ethics and reliability. Throughout our interactions with Beth and Sabine, we found them to be ethical and reliable as well as flexible and accommodating with very good long-distance communications and follow-up. They took care of everything before, during, and after the sale as we were unable to travel to Virginia. We would not hesitate to hire Canterbury Estate Sales again!"

"My husband and I hired Canterbury Estate Sales to help us conduct an estate sale for our late uncle’s property. As we live out of town it was a relief to find Beth and Sabine to help us with this undertaking. These two ladies went above and beyond what was expected. They took care of everything, from placing ads, pricing, staging, research, polishing silver to directing traffic the day of the sale. Their attention to detail and professional manner helped make the success of the estate sale well beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend both Beth and Sabine to anyone who is need of professionals to help them with an estate sale. You won’t be disappointed!"
