    Victorian Times Estate Liquidators helped with my elderly mother’s house in June 2020, when we were just coming out of the Coronavirus shelter-in-place. Michel and Danielle are wonderful people! They did a great job on the estate sale and in doing it safely with all the new virus protocols. Their vast connections in the estate-sale world enabled success. They went above and beyond in helping me facilitate a remote sale of my mother’s house during highly challenging times. Not only that, Michel and Danielle are super friendly, honest, creative, hard-working, and knowledgeable – truly a wonder and I’m so glad I came to know them! I highly recommend Victorian Times for your estate sale needs.

    I highly recommend Michel and Danielle at Victorian Tymes Estate Sales!! They are wonderful and honest and treated every item and every one of us with kindness and respect and dignity. They work SO hard, and the staging was lovely. From start to finish, they worked efficiently to sell everything and left the house empty! I actually miss seeing and visiting with them every day. Don’t hesitate to contact them when you are ready to have an estate sale!

    I cannot recommend Victorian Times MORE highly for your Estate Sale needs! Michele and her professional, hard working team make all the machinations of a large estate sale run smoothly and seamlessly. She employs a licensed appraiser for high end items so all merchandise is researched for accurate prices. She displayed all of the items beautifully, and her cleanup crew left the house spotless. She is knowledgeable, honest, and a pleasure to work with.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
    Not only did we make a lot of money but they were very careful with our home which was important to us because we were in the process of selling. They are a friendly, professional and knowledgeable team. Trust is important in this business and they were extremely trustworthy!
    Thank you guys for all your hard work!

    My husband was asked to be the executor of the estate of a friend of ours. When she passed, there was so much to do. Most of all, there was a house full of years of living and traveling and collecting. It was overwhelming to us. We knew Michelle and her family from attending their estate sales. We called, they came! They cleaned and organized and found treasures hidden in the oddest places. We had no idea there were so many things of value in the house. They did a tremendous job of arranging the treasures, then adversiting and selling them. We were incredibly pleased with the results – way above and beyond what we expected! We trusted them completely with the job we hired them to do and would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Simply Amazing! Michele and her daughter Danielle are wonderful to work with. My mother passed away in March. My mom had so much stuff it was overwhelming to think about selling all of it. Michele came and took care of everything. We live out of state so finding someone we could trust was important. Michele took pictures of the staging of the home and kept us informed of everything that was happening. The staging of my mother’s home was so beautiful and professional. This is an honest business and these are good, people to work with. I recommend them without hesitation.

    We recently completed the difficult task of getting rid of many items that had so many personal memories attached. I say difficult because there were items that had been in the family for many years that the thought of parting with them was almost crippling. We could tell right away that we could not do what we knew had to be done by ourselves. This is where Michel and her family come in. We left it all in their hands. They effectively organized, catalogued, researched and arranged each and every item we had. They are kind, caring and totally professional. They went the extra mile to insure all items were offered at a fair price and that the items that didn’t sell right away were available online. When the sale was over, the house was clean, the sale items were categorized and the checks were issued in a timely manner. What more could you ask for? This was a difficult task for us made simple by the tireless effort of Michel, Dan and daughter Danielle. We HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants their estate sale to be handled by the best. Thank you so much Michel, Dan and Danielle. You are amazing!

    If you are looking for someone to do a sale for you “DO NOT LOOK ANY FARTHER”
    Michelle and her husband and daughter are the best. They took on a rather small sale for us and gave it all the attention that they would have done for a huge one.
    They did everything they promised and more and we cannot thank them enough.

    Michel and her crew’s expertise and comprehensive service were invaluable to me, because I live out of town. My parents had lived in their San Diego home for almost 60 years, and when Victorian Times was finished, the house was spotless. These are true professionals and they showed great sensitivity to our family and neighborhood concerns.
    5+ stars!!!!

    After our father’s passing last September, my brothers and I were overwhelmed with the amount of personal possessions that he had collected over the years. After dividing up the items that we wanted to keep in the family, we investigated several options for addressing the remaining items. We met with several estate liquidators and selected Victorian Tymes because of their personal approach, friendly manner, fair financial structure, and outstanding references. After we signed their agreement and gave them access to the house, Michel and her team took care of everything from preparing the items to conducting the sale to having the house cleaned out after the sale and finally, sending us a summary letter with our share of the sale proceeds. All throughout the process, Michel kept us updated and put aside several personal items that we had left behind. They were wonderful to work with and I highly recommend their service.

    Wow…what can I say? Michel, you and your ‘family’ staff took what had been an emotional and physical difficult time for me and turned everything around to a well planned and efficient estate sale. Your company is amazing…professional and personable. As a fellow Christian, we also shared that dimension of our lives. The more I got to know you and trust your team, the more I let go of my worries. Thank you for the fabulous job you guys did. I know that your work ethics and thoroughness dazzled our sales broker…you will be hearing from him again, I’m sure. When you get ‘cloned’ – send her up here! Northern California needs someone like you. Take care, my new friend. Jackie

    I couldn’t be more grateful for Victorian Times! They were so through. They are very honest and I was able to leave my home in their hands for an estate sale with no worry. They sold every last bit. They researched the prices on all items. I would never recommend any one but Victorian Times they went above and beyond. I know anyone would be happy with them because they do incredible work. Thank you again! You helped me beyond words can express.

    i can’t begin to thank Shelly, Dan, Danielle, her expert appraiser and all of those who participated in my parents estate sale. They were kind, considerate and most of all professional and honest in the way they handled things. When I signed that contract , I was able to take my first deep breath. Everything was done perfectly. They cleaned and prepared items for sale. They did endless research to make certain things were priced accurately. And the presentation was outstanding. All the feedback I have received from buyers was extremely favorable. I absolutely never had to worry about a thing. I have already recommended them to others facing this ordeal. They will make this part of what you have to deal with effortless and that is what you need at a time like this.

    A real relief to have this service when my sister died. Very professional, friendly and good communication.
    A thorough approach to handling family valuables with a reasonable return. Appreciate all the work they put into making an appealing and organized sale.
    Would highly recommend.

    Michel and her team did an amazing job handling my mother’s estate sale, taking care of EVERY detail from start to finish. They cleaned, organized, arranged for professional appraisals, displayed, priced, and even made arrangements for the hauling away of what remained after the sale. I appreciated their kindness, honesty, and the caring way they handled everything, leaving me without a worry. I would recommend their services without reservation, and can’t thank them enough for the wonderful job they did!

    It was a pleasure to work with Michel and her team on my mothers estate sale. My mother in general had very beautiful things as well as some very interesting pieces. She also had an exceptional line of costume jewelry as well as some gold pieces. It is because of Michel’s impeccable reputation for trust worthiness both personally and professionally that I entrusted her with the sale of my mothers possessions. What I also appreciate is that she has a licensed appraiser that she consults with so in this way certain items can be authenticated and priced properly. I feel she did a an excellent job pricing and displaying my mothers things and as soon as I signed the contract I felt like a huge load had been lifted off my shoulders. If you want integrity, honesty, and a job well done then look no further. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciated all their hard work. I have and will continue to refer Michel to anyone who may have a need for her services.

    ***** (FIVE STARS!). Whenever possible, I choose to patronize family-owned and operated businesses. I also believe there is truth in the phrase “You get what you pay for.” I’m pleased and honored to report that Michel and her team did not disappoint and, in fact, surpassed my expectations. From the moment I met Michel and her team, they impressed me not only with their efficient and professional manner, but also their genuine kindness and compassion. Needless to say, conducting an estate sale is not a simple task to bear and can be utterly overwhelming. Michel and her team took the time and effort to walk me through, and keep me informed throughout, the entire process. In addition, they showed great respect for the home, property and personal belongings, created remarkably beautiful “displays” throughout the property and delivered the estate sale funds and a complete itemization to my office within days after the sale. Because of their years of experience, research and networking, several valuable (and rather large) items were sold at market rate the first day of the sale. I’m convinced what Michel accomplished in just a few short weeks would have taken me and my family months to complete. I wholeheartedly recommend Victorian Tymes Estate Liquidators to anyone in need of their services. In fact, I was so pleased with their service, my realtor asked for their information to pass on to her clients. Thank you, Michel and team!

    Michel and her family are true professionals as well as a family business. We had an unusual sale in that my husband and I are both artists in the home decor industry and had accumulated product samples over the years that were taking over our home. Michel and her family stepped in to help us reclaim our space. They created a “store” in our backyard with white party tents, tables and display racks. They went through every item, priced it, cleaned it, merchandised it, and sold it. It was a tremendous amount of work, but they did it cheerfully and cleaned up afterwards. We now have our space back and money for some renovation work. They are a joy to work with as well as an inspiring, hard working family and we recommend them highly–they will get the job done!

    We can’t say enough good things about Michel and her team. We moved my father in law into assisted living in May of 2013. We had no idea where to start but slowly started going through his belongings. Because we lived out of the area, it was slow going to say the least. We were referred to Michel and could not have been happier with the results. She took care of everything, including the disposal of items that did not sell. I was able to drive down and see she and her team in action and was amazed at the presentation. There were items that I would have just thrown away or given away, but they had cleaned everything up and their presentation was amazing. We didn’t have to do anything and the end result was that my father in law received much more for his items then we would have imagined and it was completely turn key. We would highly recommend Michel to anyone. She took a huge burden off our shoulders and let us focus on other matters . Thanks Michel.

    When my mother moved into assisted living, I was completely overwhelmed trying to liquidate what she no longer needed. Michel and company took care of EVERYTHING – quickly, expertly, and with sensitivity. What originally felt like “selling” my childhood memories became re-purposing things that could become a treasure for someone else. I highly recommend Victorian Times. They went way beyond my expectations. I would use them again without hesitation.

    I am very impressed by the services offered by Victorian Times. I highly recommend this company for estate liquidation. As a real estate agent, we need to refer our clients to reliable vendors. This is the only estate sale company I trust. The latest project I recommended them for, a sale in Encinitas, yielded a huge return for the sellers. Each item is researched very carefully to be priced correctly and the staff sells the merchandise like it is a retail boutique. The team is honest, hard working and very professional. Feel free to contact me for a personal recommendation: 619-944-9433.

    Hiring Victorian Times was one of the best decisions I made as the executor of an estate that included a 3 three bedroom 2 story townhouse. I was overwhelmed at first but when Michel took over they handled everything, from organizing all the rooms to pricing the items. There were only bare walls after it was all done! Because of their contact in the antiques industry, they found buyers we never knew existed. Thanks to the Victorian Times efforts, we grossed 4 times more than our highest estimate going in. We would not hesitate to hire them again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to manage an estate sale.
