WHAT WE DO
MORE ABOUT THEN & NOW ESTATE SALES
We are a family-owned and operated, high-end, on-site estate sale company that focuses on providing clients with unparalleled in-person experiences to liquidate as many of their undesired items as possible.
However, due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, we also conduct Online Auctions. We can help you decide what works best for you.
We proudly service the Greater New Jersey Area, New York City, and South Florida.
Some of our estate sales will now be conducted online. Then & Now will maintain our reputation as a provider of excellent service and results without risking the health and safety of our employees or our clients.
Then & Now will still handle all tasks involved in running a successful estate sale, including photography, item pricing, item listing/cataloging, advertising, and item pickup.
We will be working for you each step of the way to ensure the process is easy and that you earn the most money possible for your unwanted items.
Our initial consultation is at your convenience and is free! We come to your home to evaluate the sale contents.
SUPPLYING & PRICING
We supply all the equipment/personnel necessary to conduct the sale set up. Your items will be priced according to fair market value.
Your home is secured and managed by our responsible staff, one way entrance and exit. We are here to help you with the highest level of honesty, diligence, and sensitivity. We will transform your home and beautifully display and organize your items.
An estate sale can only be successful if you have the clientele and customers to attend the sale and purchase your items. Then & Now Estate Sales will advertise your sale on social media, local newspapers, and various web sites, assuring you the most exposure. We are one of the most viewed estate sale companies in NJ, and receive awards monthly!
WHEN AND WHY DO YOU HAVE AN ESTATE SALE?
Anytime! Most clients prefer to have their sale about 3 weeks before moving. We can schedule your sale to meet your timetable. Estate sales were typically held upon the death of a family member. However, people can host an estate sale when they need to unload large amounts of items, for example a renovation or moving.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF ITEMS?
The amount of goods to be sold, the value of those items, and the amount of work involved determine whether Then & Now Estate Sales can be of service and the best method of selling the merchandise.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE ENOUGH ITEMS?
Sometimes a phone call is all it takes, but frequently we will need to go through the home to be certain.
I wanted to reach out and once again say THANK YOU , for the great job you did at our sale August 2022. Just like back in 2015 when you ran our sale in Wall twp as we moved here to Brick. Everything went perfectly. Carol and I can’t express how pleased we were with the attendance , how you ran and advertised our sale. Your knowledge in pricing our items was spot on and you kept us informed every moment of the day.
We both wanted to say and express our gratitude and please use us for a referral anytime you wish. I would be glad to talk to any perspective future client of yours and share our experience with you not once but now 2 times over a 7 year period.

Very efficient and professional. They photographed everything in one day and arranged pick up one week later. They handled it all. To my surprise, almost all of my things were sold! I made more money than I expected. I give my highest recommendation.

Thank you again for handling our moving sale in Morganville. You and your staff were organized and professional. More Importantly, everyone was kind, thoughtful and considerate.
Jack, I was so impressed with your work ethics in setting up the sale and during the sale helping customers with their items that I had to send you a letter to you personally.
I appreciate all you did to facilitate the sale of our furnishing. Many, many thanks.

Dear Rae, I cannot thank you and your staff enough for the amazing sale you conducted in my house in Demarest. I was a little skeptical on the coverage on a 6,000 square foot house. You handled it beautifully. Your staff was courteous and helpful throughout the whole process. The exposure given to our sale through media advertising and newspaper was shown in the amount of people that showed up. You had over 100 people waiting on line. Your professionalism and honesty was noted throughout the two day sale. I would recommend you and your company highly to anyone that needs an estate sale. Best of luck to you in the future.
Best regards, Irina K
Having an estate sale with Then and Now was so easy and successful that I would highly recommend using them for your sale. Ann and her staff were fantastic with their pricing, staging and salesmanship. They helped to make a very stressful and emotionally draining situation, not only easy, but pleasurable. Thanks again.

Dearest Rae, So many thanks for coordinating the estate sale at my Demarest, NJ home. After 25 years of living there, my wife Lauren and I had extreme anxiety that the majority of contents would not sell, traffic would be light and there would never be enought time to meet our closing date. You were a life saver. Your pre-staging was the first impressive task. Everything was pulled out and ready to sell. Then, on each of the two days (which I initially believed would not be enough), there were 50 people lined up for our opening and a large continuous flow thereafter. Lauren and I couldn't believe it. You and your team were there at every turn aggressively negotiating each sale (big and small), carefully monitoring the busy traffic flow and carrying all pieces out. As an added bonus, I had no idea we would walk away with such a large amount of money. Please consider this note as the utmost recommendation that Then and Now Estate Sales are the finest in the business and have allowed for my home sale experience to be so much easier than expected.
Sincerely, Jim M, May 22, 2018
Dear Rae, I want to thank you for the estate sale you did for my parent's house on April 13th and 14th. It was especially difficult for me. Not only did you and your team advertise, prepare, and set up the house for sale, but you also were emotionally supportive. It was a particularly hard time but you were gracious and offered your friendship. For that I am grateful. The sale went great and smoothly, even during the "tool frenzy". You kept your cool and professionalism all the way through. I see why you're so successful in all that you do. You have the perfect combination of business and heart. I couldn't have chosen a better group. You were honest, fair, and professional with a smile. Choosing Then and Now Estate Sales was the best choice I made. I can't thank you enough.

I would like to thank you and your staff. I was extremely happy with the services provided by you and your staff of Then and Now Estate Sales. My sale was Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. I can't believe the amount of people that showed up on Thursday. You researched my items so they could be marked correctly. You displayed the items so beautifully for the sale. Everything was so organized. Payment after the sale was prompt. The volume of people you brought in was incredible. You and your staff exceeded my expectations. I will be sure to recommend your service to others.
Sincerely, Ety M. April 25, 2018
