I was first introduced to The Magnusson Group by our family lawyer after the death of my mother in 2012. We initially engaged them to perform a personal property appraisal for her estate. From the first encounter, they displayed compassion and professionalism, as well as sensitivity to our family in a difficult time. READ MORE

I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciated you taking the time to counsel my client regarding the contents of her recently deceased mother’s home. You are truly in a distinguished class of professionals who make going “above and beyond” the normal course of life. Thank you!
~Edward R. Collins, Artisan Wealth Management, July 2015
This as a well-respected and credentialed company offering top notch service. I met the owner-appraiser, Lynn Magnusson, at a meeting I attended to learn about many services available for downsizers. I spoke with a number of professionals who have used her company’s services. Unanimously excellent reviews! I later met again with Lynn to learn more about her company and was impressed with her knowledge, integrity, contacts in the fine arts and antiques world, and her methods. Rick and I plan to hire her to dispose of our 3 storage lockers full of things we still have, but don’t want, after downsizing. We can’t possibly do it ourselves!
~Merle M. Martin, Realtor, Matthews & Company Realty, September 2016
You were a pleasure to work with. The process was quick, easy and painless! I may need your help again very soon, so I will call back for a problem solving consultation.

~Jirakal L., Old Tappan, NJ, September 2014
Very professional from start to finish. I was greatly impressed by how much sold in such a short period of time. If I hear of someone else in need of an estate sale, I would highly recommend you to others.

~Kelly M., Appraisal Client, April 2016
My attorney recommended you. I was very pleased with the first appraisal and your timely response when we needed a second appraisal.~Janet M., Appraisal Client, South Orange, NJ, September 2015
My sister and I lost our mom after a long illness and we were overwhelmed by the prospect of selling the house that our parents had owned for 47 years in Ridgewood, NJ. We both live out of state. We heard about Magnusson from our real estate agent and immediately called them about their estate sale services. We were impressed by that first phone call when they explained soup to nuts what would happen and how it would work financially. From then on throughout our working relationship, we felt totally confident in their efficiency and professionalism. Magnusson made a tough emotional time as painless for us as possible. Two months after that first phone call, the house was cleaned out and we walked away with a nice check. We could never have done this without their help and we’re happy to give them the highest recommendation to any prospective clients.
~Alexandra E., Estate Sale Client, Ridgewood, NJ, January 2016
I was very impressed with Drew’s in-depth knowledge of jewelry and furniture and the speed in which he completed the appraisal. During such an emotionally painful experience, Drew was compassionate and gave me peace of mind.
~Ginger P., Appraisal Client, Fairfield, NJ, June 2015
I was happy with your quick and efficient handling of this project. Living in Florida and unfamiliar with NJ, it was a relief to find you. While I considered other firms, I knew you would give me exactly what I needed and you delivered.
~Brandi M., Brick, NJ, October 2015
Magnusson is my preference when shopping for estate sale items. They are professional and super friendly to do business with. They present all the valuables in a lovely manner which makes people want to buy them. Some other companies are very messy and things are scattered about. Other companies do not demonstrate a professional manner that makes you want to spend your money like Magnusson’s does. Lauren works hard and is friendly at the same time. When I see Magnusson listing an estate sale they are my first preference even if I have to drive far for my purchases, which I have many times. Thanks to them, I have purchased many treasures.
~Cheryl, Morristown, NJ, February 2015
I would definitely recommend you. Working with you on my appraisal was a very positive experience.~Joan H., Appraisal Client, Rutherford, NJ, October 2015

Drew & Lynn were a pleasure to talk to and your team was thorough and organized. I was very satisfied with the sale and the condition in which you left the house.~Ellen M., Estate Sale Client, Ridgewood, NJ, January 2015
Even with the crazy winter weather, you were very organized and willing to work both with me and the weather! You truly made a difficult time more manageable for me. My mom and dad are spread out now in their items which have new homes.~Marianne W., Estate Sale Client, Mountain Lakes, NJ, February 2015
It was a breathe of fresh air to meet people who are as easy to work with as those in your office. Drew is such a nice person and your Lauren is a beautiful woman. It was my pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with you.~Vincent A., Appraisal Client, Paramus, NJ, May 2015

Our client’s case ended well. We agreed to mediation with the judge. He looked at you appraisal and favored it over the one done by the appraiser the other party used. Your report was favored because it was detailed, the most unbiased, and fair. I also gave the judge your deposition and he read it.
~Ellen O., Esq., Liberty Corner, NJ
I was very pleased with your services and will definitely refer you.
