J.A. Baker LLC understands the unique needs of those downsizing from a large home to a smaller residence, moving out of town or state or losing a loved one and needing to empty a house of its contents.

We work with families, banks, law firms and trust and estate professionals to handle the often daunting task of settling an estate. We’ve had the privilege of conducting many significant and highly publicized estate sales in central Ohio. In 2010, we handled the full liquidation of a 23,000 square foot estate which remains the highest-priced residential real estate transaction in Franklin County, Ohio history.

J.A. Baker LCC’s professional staff handles your sale from beginning to end. We plan, inventory, organize, advertise and run your sale. As part of our focus and commitment to complete estate liquidation, our team can make arrangements to donate remaining items to a charitable organization of your choice. We can also handle all cleanup post estate sale. The premises are left in “broom clean” condition.

How Do I Know if I Should Have an Estate Sale?

If you have a substantial quantity or quality of property or items, an estate sale is ideal. Estates sales work on volume and variety. There’s always a market for antiques. Dealers and collectors buy at estate sales to acquire their inventory. Everyday items such as furniture, tools, sporting goods, clothing, toys, kitchen items, appliances and electronics move well at sales. There are often many things in a house that are worth far more than people realize.

More importantly, J.A. Baker LLC’s marketing engine and extensive client lists will ensure a large turn-out at your estate sale, resulting in higher sales.

What’s Our Fee?

Our proven track record demonstrates we achieve outstanding sales results. There is no charge for the initial consultation and you will be given a quote in advance without charge. If we are hired to conduct your estate sale, we work on a percentage basis, including a graduated percentage for valuable items. There is no cash outlay for our clients, ever. We inventory, appraise and sell your items along with handling staffing, permits, signage and advertising. We will be happy to discuss our fee structure with you.
