- "Elizabeth Ann Sales held an estate sale for our family after the loss of our loved one. Truly thankful for the kindness and sincerity shown during such a highly emotional time. Ann is a plethora of knowledge regarding value of household items, furniture, jewelry, etc. Ann was so organized and her complete understanding of legal requirements of an estate relieved our family of so much stress. It was a pleasure to work with Ann and I strongly recommend anyone looking for an estate sale company to contact Elizabeth Ann Sales, you will certainly appreciate not only the professional courtesies, wealth of knowledge but the true genuineness you are guaranteed to receive."

- "We had occasion to call on Ann, and crew when a relative died suddenly. There was no will, and we were under pressure from the bank executors of the estate to clear all of the belongings out of the home. The contents of the house were ours the house was to be sold and money's gained given to a charity. We had absolutely no idea where to start!
Thankfully I had worked with her husband, and knew she had this business. I read the testimonials on her website. Was sure she would be able to help, at least direct us on where to start.
The first call convinced us we had called the right person. Ann listened to our delema, then she gave her condolences. Her next words were if she were to take on the sale, we would have to hand over the project in it's entirety.
We had a family meeting, then made arrangements to meet with Ann at the property, with the bank executor. We were about ten minutes early, Ann arrived five minutes later. The executor never showed up. We called the bank, who were able to get the executor to call us. She had forgotten all about the meeting. Ann was very upset at the executor, she told us it is something she has seen before. She then told us to make another meeting, she gave us her email, saying to have the bank contact her email so there is a record. That is the way to get the bank to follow through, "Always have records of communications."
We did as Ann said, everything went as planned. We signed the contract with Ann giving her full authority over the estate sale, and the bank agreed to deal with Ann.
The week before the sale Ann & crew went into the house to start inventory, pricing, decluttering, tagging, & bagging. There had been an animal in the house, the family cat had hidden whenever we were there. We could smell and see the damage. Ann and crew cleaned carpets, deodorized, and bought deodorizers to spread throughout the house.
The weekend of the sale we were allowed to come and shop. Imagine our relief to see no carpet stains, and no foul odors!
The house was so clean after the sale we couldn't believe it! Ann had arranged for the jewelry that hadn't sold to be consigned, and it produced more than we thought they would. The sale was a complete success! Thanks to Ann's work, knowledge, and helpful crew!
I'm told the bank was so impressed with Ann they called Ann for information about her doing sales for them!"

- "Of all the professionals helping with the probate process for my late mother's estate, Elizabeth Ann's was a stand out in terms of thoroughness and professionalism. Once I provided the necessary information and signed the contract, they took care of everything. I was very impressed with the whole process during the stressful time following the death of my mother. I highly recommend Elizabeth Ann's."
– Jody H. - Lake Oswego, OR
- "I was very pleased with Ann’s handling of the estate sale of my parents’ home and sixty years of accumulation. I was completely overwhelmed with the task of emptying the contents of the house, and while searching the web for information and books on how to perform this task, I discovered sites for companies that do estate sales. I sent out some emails for additional information to a few of these companies, and Ann was the first to respond and also provided the most complete answers to my questions. After meeting with Ann, and visiting with her during the consultation, I knew Ann’s company was the one that I wanted to handle the sale. The entire crew worked very hard, and did a great job. All of the sale items were well organized, priced, displayed, and the sale was very well orchestrated. I highly recommend Elizabeth Ann’s Estate Sales Company."
– Kent H. - Eugene, OR
- "Thank you for the great job...selling my mom's estate.
It was especially nice to deal with a company that did exactly what they said they would do. You always called and asked what we would like to do in special circumstances and saved items that we had overlooked in our initial walk through.
During the entire process I felt we could completely trust you and your staff to act in our mother's best interest."
– Rod O. - Beaverton, OR
- "I want to thank you so much for everything you have done for my family. Who would have believed that you could take 66 years of collecting, clean it, organize it, and turn it into a showcase of beauty and quality. Your knowledge of antiques and collectables were far beyond our ability. We could not be happier with the way you and your staff were so kind and attentive to my fathers' needs during his transition into a smaller home. He felt like he was leaving his things in good hands. You showed great compassion on handling his memories. The honesty and integrity will be at the top of our list when referring your services, which we would be happy to do."
– Jaye and Clyde F. - Gladstone, OR
- "No words can express my gratitude in you taking on this sale....I will definitely be contacting you in the future when it's the time with my parents home....Ann was nothing but professional from my initial contact with her. She was detailed in what her services provided and was true to her word in every aspect from the beginning to the end of the process. I felt that not only was this just a job for her, but she truly cared about every detail of the sale and the family. She and her staff are honest and hard working. It is always a difficult situation for family to have an estate sale. I feel truly blessed to have met Ann and to have had her handle my sisters estate sale. I will definitely use her company again in the future!"
– Gail D. - Banks, OR
- "Thanks so much for all you have done! It feels really good to know things are all cleared out and that everything was handled so professionally We never could have managed all that on our own, and it was so nice to know that it was all being handled by someone who was not only professional, but sensitive and respectful as well I've so enjoyed working with you as well Being kept informed through each step of the way was very reassuring. I would recommend Elizabeth Ann's in a heartbeat to anyone!"

– Ellen E. - Portland, OR.
- ".... Your experience in recognizing objects of true value, researching that value in the market and pricing them accordingly, was exactly what we were looking for. The fact that you could attract an estimated 600 potential buyers to an obscure location 30 miles outside the metropolitan area far exceeded our expectations and contributed strongly to the sales success.... Estate sales are an emotional event for the family, more than anything; it was your kindness and thoughtfulness that came through for us."
