After my last remaining parent died, my sibling and I had the monumental task of doing an Estate Sale and full clean out of a beachside home in Brevard County. My parent's had lived in the area since the mid-1980's so this was not going to be an easy task to complete. Complicating the matter, both my sibling and I lived out of state and were at least a day's drive by car from the Space Coast. Our local Estate law firm recommended only one Estate Sale company to us: GCB. When I spoke with a past client of GCB Estate Sales named Ken, he had done the research on over 7 different local estate companies and it was clear that GCB was the company to use from his perspective. Those two recommendations were enough for me and I couldn't have made a better choice to handle our unique situation. The owners of GCB Estate Sales (Craig and his wife Ann) became extended family members to us. Their communication was clear, honest and upfront about everything, even down to the most trivial details. I was worried that the process of cleaning out my parent's home would take months but they were able to come up with a plan and approach which guided us through every step of the process. I came down in early March, met with them the day after we arrived on site and over the next 11 days their consultation was critical towards achieving our goal of pulling off an Estate Sale and then emptying all contents of the house. At the end of my 11 days in the area, I gave their team full access to the home and by the end of March our Estate Sale was complete and by early April the entire home was cleaned out and ready to be listed for sale. Don't get me wrong, those 11 days while I was in the area required a commitment of hard work, long days (6am to 10pm) and brutal decision making about what to keep since you realistically won't be able to keep all of your parent's possessions. This is where Craig and Ann shined by guiding us on how to not get bogged down and showing us how to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Other than the 11 days when our family was at the home deciding what to keep from the home, we were completely remote and I entrusted them with the care of our family's most valuable and personal possessions. After I had left Brevard County, they kept us informed via text of how progress was being made or when they had questions. They even helped in coordination of repair work required to prep our home for being sold and met with potential vehicle buyers to give them test drives of the car being sold. I cannot speak highly enough of them as a team. Are there less expensive companies out there? Yes, but you get what you pay for and you can't put a price on trust. They have earned my highest recommendation.

Facing the volume of items, including more than 2,500 antique books that my family entrusted me to liquidate was daunting to say the very least. It was made worse after another estate sale company left me in a lurch with no action and eventually no response after we made a verbal agreement, (most likely because of the size, diversity and sheer volume of the books and other items.) GCB saved the Day! Ann and Craig lifted me out of a desperate situation with stunning expertise and sincere empathy, and they did it quickly. GCB is the whole package. They ensured I received the highest possible value for the items for sale, that I was comfortable with their process and were even a comfort to my aging father. They made what could have been a heartbreaking process one of joy and anticipation for our family. They are truly wonderful, caring people who are passionate about their profession.

After my Dad's death I had the overwhelming job of going through 30 years of memories, all the things my parents collected and treasured. Ann helped me discover some treasures that might be missed by the untrained eye! She was honest and respectful throughout the entire process. They took measures to protect carpeting that we did not want trampled during the sale. They go above and beyond to make the experience as painless as possible. Afterwards the house was clean and empty. Their help was immeasurable!

As an attorney and trustee for an elderly relative who had transitioned into residential care, when faced with the prospect of having to deal with--from 325 miles away--the liquidation of her Merritt Island estate consisting of a huge 50-year accumulation of high quality artwork, collectibles, a very large collection books (many of them valuable first editions), tools, and household goods, I quickly came to the conclusion that the situation called for professional intervention. To that end I interviewed several different estate sale companies in Brevard County before deciding on GCB. In the end I chose GCB largely on the basis of a personal interview, the quality of their online presentation of items for prior sales, the sense that they have a personal interest and involvement in their work, and their special expertise in books. In sum, I was extremely pleased with the overall result of our July 2016 sale. When turning an estate over to a firm for liquidation--especially when dealing with a firm at a long distance--the element of trustworthiness is first and foremost in one’s mind. In this critical regard, from the very outset I was completely at ease with Ann and Craig George. They stayed in constant communication as they worked to organize the contents of the house and stage the sale, and they did not hesitate to collaborate closely with me whenever there was a question about provenance of an item or pricing. I was very impressed with the amount of time they put into researching and pricing items, and, as I had seen in their prior sales, they once again displayed obvious care and talent in the attractive staging and presentation of sale items to attract buyers and secure the best prices. I very much appreciated the constant feedback, both as they prepared for the sale and during the course of the three-day sale itself. Also, their computerized point of sale system, which provided very useful quantitative analysis about the sale, was unique among the companies I interviewed and from my perspective as a representative of the estate definitely gave them an edge. In the end, they were great to work with, they were very professional in every respect, and the three-day sale they conducted was very successful. Without question, GCB has earned my highest recommendation.

After interviewing 4 other estate sale companies, I almost gave up but a friend suggested talking to Ann George of GCB Estate Sales. My initial meeting with Ann gave me new confidence and a level of trust as a friend and I peppered her with questions. She was genuine in her responses answering all of my questions and explaining in detail how their approach maximizes sales. At my second meeting, Ann and her husband Craig sat down with me and went over every word of the contract and the entire process. Their professionalism along with the glowing recommendations of their three references convinced me to a new level of assurance I hadn't found with other companies, so much so, I handed over the keys to my mother's home and gave them free reign to stage the home, advertise and collect the proceeds.

Throughout the entire process, the lines of communication were open and a very successful estate sale was executed. Ann and Craig make a great team, their individual skill sets combine to create a surprisingly sophisticated approach to estate sales and analysis.

Great communication! Personalized attention! Extremely knowledgeable regarding antiques, collectibles, books, etc. Their team did a great job cleaning and staging the items for sale, photographing the items for the website, and conducting the sale! We were faced with the challenge of a daunting sixty year family collection/accumulation and are extremely satisfied and glad that GCB Estate Sales was the company that we chose!

We are so pleased with Ann and Craig George. After a very unexpected death in the family, we were overwhelmed with facing the removal of all household items. It was a huge undertaking and we put our complete trust in GCB to take over and take care of this job from start to finish. They accomplished this large task last week in Fellsmere. We can not say enough about the Georges and their staff. They are all sincere, warm, and caring. The end result was a well done, everything gone, job done. The Georges were also willing to work with our Realtor to show the house (which is for sale) and gained many interested potential buyers. They truly had our needs at heart and we can not say enough about all the wonderful, detailed work they did to accomplish what we needed. I highly recommend the Georges for your estate needs.

Pardon our enthusiasm but we were so very pleased with the services provided by GCB Estate Sales. Every person on the team treated our belongings and our home with care and respect and kept us informed during every step of the process. As this was our first estate sale we had no idea what to expect, however, multiple seasoned estate shoppers were so impressed that they took the time to tell us that our sale was exceptionally well done.

The passing of a family member presents lots of challenges, one being what to do with a household full of family treasures. Ann and her team came in and researched our vintage/antiques, polished or washed and pressed, organized and then beautifully set the stage for a very successful estate sale. The team was trustworthy, efficient and best of all - fun to work with. I would highly recommend this group to anyone.

After the recent passing of both parents our GCB Estate Sale was handled with professionalism, and much respect for the family treasures. We were impressed with the amount of research done in order to put a fair value on our parents’ collectibles. GCB's sensitivity helped our family through an emotional time.
