Shortly after his wife passed away, this grieving husband knew the family home was simply too much for him to take care of. Downsizing was in order, but he and his wife collected cherished treasures for years. Their suburban home was filled and he didn’t know where to start. That’s when he turned to Jeff Baker for help. “Jeff did an unbelievably professional job with my family’s estate sale. He was sensitive and trustworthy and meticulous and can offer guidance from A to Z.”
M. Krupman, Chicago, Illinois, December, 2008.
The home is a well known historic estate filled with the treasures one acquires from a lifetime of travel. But when the owners’ health began to fail quickly, the couple’s adult children knew it was time to deal with the family home. The job became even more pressing after the home sold. But with only a matter of weeks before the closing, the task was simply too daunting. A friend referred them to Jeff Baker and to their great, relief they could once again concentrate on what mattered most, their parents. “Jeff’s doing a spectacular job. He’s making the process as simple and painless as it can be.”
Philip Cummins, Beverly Hills, California, January 2010
“They were respectful of the items in the home and interested in the person who had owned them. They worked quickly and efficiently under my time constraints. I got more than my money’s worth.”
Karen West, Worthington, Ohio.
“Jeff Baker was knowledgeable and thorough in appraising and selling our antiques. He did a wonderful job and was accommodating with our schedule. He certainly went above and beyond and is a true professional. Again, thank you for everything. We are so grateful.”
Jerry and Marjorie Gross, Naples, Florida, October, 2009.
“The passing of my mother was more difficult than anticipated and then came the need to itemize and divide all of her belongings. I was overwhelmed with the process and in need of quality help. A number of friends recommended Jeff Baker to me and he exceeded my hopes and expectations in the process.”
S. Roberts, Columbus, Ohio. April 2009.
“After the initial meeting, I felt that I had put the daunting task of the disposal of my mother’s furnishings and possessions into extremely capable hands. From start to finish, Jeff handled the estate sale in a professional manner, with a side of humor thrown in. I highly recommend him.”
Melissa Richwine, Bexley, Ohio.
“Jeff was excellent to work with – we were on a tight timeframe and he was willing/able to come out same day and have our appraisal of our 19th Century Stella Music Box complete the following day. His research was excellent, he estimated 2 hours of work and kept to that. We got a nice written appraisal with comps & pictures and a disc in case we lose the hard copy!”

“I called Jeff to get an appraisal for my sterling silver service for insurance placement value and to ask him to look at a few chairs that we had in the family. He was right on time. He was extremely polite and very informative with the method he would use to appraise my things. While at my home he noticed we have some other pieces and some artwork that he thought was valuable so he ended up appraising those items as well. He was extremely intrigued by a china cabinet we have in the family that came from Spain and was able to give us a history of the piece.”

“He really knows “his stuff” and his report was very thorough and complete. I was anxious to have him come over as I was concerned that our things were worthy of an appraisal but he made me feel very relaxed and assured me that our pieces were nice and should be valued by us. While we do not wish to sell any of these items it is important to have the appraisal in case of a loss.”
