Our first meeting is designed to help you understand the process, start to finish. This is a pressure free meeting where we evaluate the potential outcome for your sale, discuss our fee structure, a timeframe, how set-up works, advertising, and
your goals for after the sale. At this point, we also discuss items to be kept by the family.
Preparations for the Sale
After we receive your signed contract, we begin the set up process, and will display, research, price each item,
photograph, and advertise the sale through multiple platforms.

During the Sale:
Our knowledgeable and dependable staff will be there to help the customers, answering questions, completing the sales, and

This depends on the size of the sale. Generally, set up, which includes pricing, photographing, and advertising, can take anywhere from a week to 2 months. From there, the sale takes place over a 3-4 day period, with final payment to the client within two weeks after the sale is complete.
– What we do before the sale:
After the contract is signed, and before the sale takes place, we recommend that nothing be disposed of prior to NLA entering the premises for set up. One person’s trash is, truly, another person’s treasure. Most things CAN be sold, including opened bottles of cleaners, cosmetics, spices, and the like. NLA will stage the complete contents of the house, displaying clearly priced items to encourage sales, with small valuable items presented in locked glass cases. Finally, photographs are taken for advertising purposes.
– During the sale:
Our staff will be available to assist and answer customer questions to encourage sales. As items are purchased, our goal is to keep displays and rooms looking attractive to stimulate
more sales. Because it can be stressful to see your family’s items being handled by, and sold to, other people, we encourage immediate family members to not attend the sale.
Our goal is to sell everything and have an empty house, but that doesn’t always happen; there are options. During the initial consultation, we offer a variety of choices, from charities and auctions, to buyouts and haul off.
Our commission is a variable rate based on gross sales; the higher the gross sales, the lower the commission, starting as low as 35%. By doing a commissioned base sale, it is in our best interest that your sale be a success!
