Estate Sales - On-Site and Online | Curated Pop-Up Shops



The Catch & Release Estate Sales Process -

Catch & Release is an established local brand with an existing following and base of design and home goods shoppers visiting  our online store. Furniture and home goods pieces will benefit from being available for sale for a significant period of time prior to client sale date, increasing chances of selling at a higher price. 

Catch & Release manages everything from photographing inventory, picking up and delivering pieces that sell prior to the sale, utilizing national and regional outlets to sell items that are less likely to sell or move locally and marketing and hosting an estate sale at the end. Catch & Release’s exposure is far more significant than a self-managed client salesale. In addition to reaching our existing followers and the exposure of bigger ticket items on our website, we engage local and regional multi-media marketing and advertising to promote your sale. 

Successful Estate Sales 

The first step you can take in realizing a successful estate sale is to reach out!   

More time =  more money. While we can work within shorter timelines, 4-6 weeks of preparation is ideal.  Because we use other channels, your sale starts as soon as you engage our services. The sooner we know, the better prepared we can be to launch your sale and liquidate belongings.
