What Makes Our Estate Sales Different

“When I meet potential clients, I can honestly tell them that we run the best estate sales in Northern New Jersey. In part,this comes from our 24 years of experience appraising & selling personal property, arts, & antiques. But my pride for our estate sales mostly stems from the complete professionalism my team brings to every aspect of the sale experience.”

President, The Magnusson Group
