Estate Sales: 30 Day Diary Of An Estate Liquidator Day 2

…Each day for the next 30 days, I will write about my experiences as an Estate Sales Professional…

Day 2

It’s 8:00am: I have been up since 6:15 and I am coffee fueled, raring to go…wonder what will happen?

But the party has been interrupted, because Host Gator, has issues. Seems there is something wrong with the server. Well how do you like that? Not very much folks…

So instead of Ruby Lane Listings, I am chatting and cross emailing with Tec People at Host Gator…

…this goes on and off for several hours with them…still not fixed, which is a big disappointment, because I know that slow sites cause big problems for our site visitors…which is never a good thing.

I do manage though: Here is an amazing Aesthetic Movement Sterling Salad Fork and Spoon I managed to list.

9:40am: I just got a call from a client…a bit on the fence, but I think he and his sister want us to do an estate sale for them this next weekend…oh boy, start you engines things is about ta git busy…

Hey Martin Willis: He Does Auction Pod Cast and Stuff, he also coordinates our auction placement service. Had to ask him about a certain little guest blog post…

Then it’s You Guessed It: Back To Photos and Listings

Website: Is Still Slow: Been chatting with Host Gator on and off all morning…

11:15 Took a Call: A woman in the Redwood City Area who has a small collection of Lalique Glass called, I hated to inform her that her Lalique Swans are worth just a little less than she paid for them twenty years ago.

No Lalique Glass Has Not Appreciated…that’s a shame…

Listed Another 5 items:

It’s 5:30pm: Have to get ready to go San Francisco on family biz…

6:30pm: While looking for parking around 5th and Mission in San Francisco, I finally listened to my messages, and lo and behold someone left a message that they had a Gill Painting for sale…Gill For Sale…I am all over that.

Also took a call from a Gentleman who Valetta and I spoke with on Thursday evening. He and his sister have picked our company to conduct an Estate Sale of their Aunts house in the Avenues…

So Monday will see us begin two and a half weeks of setting up for two different estate sales – Two weeks – 2 Estate Sales…hows that for grueling…?

Right Now 9:36: I am in the Intercontinental Hotel in S.F. with Valetta, watching her Godson…while his Mom and Dad attend a Netflix Party on Treasure Island…lucky for me the cable service includes The Food Network…Iron Chef…

When I get home, I’ll start creating a schedule for the next two weeks


…Whoa!
