The Corona Virus in Houston

Who would have known the Corona virus would have turned into something so big and serious. 

We’ve all been dealing with being locked down in our homes and worrying about our loved ones for over six weeks now. Although there is light at the end of the tunnel no one thought it would go on this long and affect so many people so deeply.  We are all so proud the way Texans have been coming together to help those with special needs, and extending extra courtesies to others, especially seniors. We are happy that Texas stat’s are low unlike other states on the east coast that are struggling so. Thank you Texan’s for being so diligent and considerate for others. We are all looking forward to all our local business going back to business as usual, and visiting our favorite restaurants asap.

As many retail business continue to be temporarily closed, Houston Estate Sales and Auction Company is open for business and assisting Houston residents with all their estate sale, auction, consignment, and loan needs. We are following all the mandated protocols of course, and we have added a few of our own as well. We are able to assist our clients with phone consultations, receive images by text or email, provide estimates, schedule estate sales, and answer any questions people have. This situation has also created buying opportunities for collectors and investors so it is a good time to sell.

Items that we can sell quickly on behalf of our clients are fine art, Gold, Silver, Rolex, diamond jewelry, loose stones such as: Emeralds, Sapphires, Diamonds, and Tanzanites, and all types of designer items.  During these unusual times we can also offer lending against these types of items if that is something that would be helpful.  This way, clients do not have to out-right sell their items…they can buy them back at a later date.

We also find that with the mandatory ‘stay at home’ order in Houston, people now have the time to re-organize, clean out, de-clutter, and update living spaces and those big Houston closets!  For example, many people love the opportunity to recycle their designer handbags (or golf clubs or weapons) in favor of the newest models. Buy, enjoy, sell, and repeat, we always say. Bored with your Black Ferragamo bag…who isn’t?  Opt for the new Orange Chanel bag for a new exciting pop of color to your look. We always say a bright pop of Chanel color ‘takes off 10 years’. Vibrant colors are not just for people in their 20’s and you only life once.  

The benefit of our consignment, private or public sale, and auction process is that we pick up your items, sell them on your behalf, all without anyone coming to your home. All you have to do is figure out what you are going to buy with your newly-found-funds.

Now is also a good time to sell that classic car, fine art collection, fine jewelry from 1990 that you know you are never going to wear again, or gifts from an X-spouse or X-mother-in-law. The price of gold closed at $1657.00 Friday so it is a great time to sell metals. Gold coins, gold jewelry, gold key rings, and yes we can even sell  scrap gold for you. Same with Silver and sterling silver, coins, Tiffany silver, and bars.

We are setting up appointments for classic estate sales, and conducting a lot of business by phone and text. Let us know how we can best serve you.  As we are located in Houston we are easy to reach and central to everyone.
