I think some of you can relate to my experience of having to uproot a family member. Taking my aunt of 88 years from New Jersey to Tennessee was not going to be easy but April’s Estate Sales handled everything. Debbie, the manager, set up my aunt’s house like a palace. She personally made sure that my aunt was comfortable with every decision and assured me that everything would be taken care of. I highly recommend her and this company.

I hope you are doing well. I just want to say that Barbara and I were truly impressed by your efforts and especially meeting the excellent team you have assembled. Just great! Also, Henry did a fine job with the overall clean up.

I just want to let you know that I thought Sheri was fantastic as well as the person that was with her. The sale was more successful than I expected and they were pleasant, efficient and very professional. Thank you so much for making a stressful situation that much easier. If you would like me write a review somewhere specific please let me know - I would be happy to do that. You all were great!

We received the check for the proceeds of the sale, thanks a lot.
And I want to thank you for running everything in such a professional and smooth way. I don't think I will need an estate sale soon again but when that time comes I will call you without any hesitancy: you are the best!
Thank you to you and all your wonderful staff for your help with our sale on Sat. You have a great team of very kind and thoughtful people who are very professional. Also, thanks for the Nantucket fudge we found in the refrigerator Sat. night. What a treat! Just to let you know, Henry's workers were also very responsible and nice to work with.
Best wishes, Seton Scott (Summit, NJ)
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the successful and extremely professional estate sale in Harrington Park. We were very happy with every aspect of the sale: your prompt meetings, availability, professionalism, quick set up, volume of items sold, etc. When selling family heirlooms and mementos, it is very personal and emotional . You and your staff gave my family a huge comfort level throughout the entire process. We cannot thank all of you enough. I would recommend your company to anyone and everyone in need of selling the contents of an estate. It saved my family a tremendous amount of time in the clean-out process while netting a profit we could not have made on our own. Please thank everyone involved in our sale. They were phenomenal!! Sincerely, Ann-Marie Portente
Our estate sales in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey was held on April 26 & 27, 2013, conducted & supervised by your company. Being new in estate and tag sales, my husband & I were a little bit apprehensive and anxious with the sales. Nonetheless, you were able to allay many of our concerns during our first meeting, phone calls, prep sales, and during the sales. You were always available to answer my phone calls, & always early on your time management. You answered our concerns professionally and gave your assurances & yet practical and honest answers with what to expect. During the prep sale you brought your team Jackie and Richie. What an excellent combination of a good team effort. They worked very hard, non stop, no lunch and were very attentive with the clients. Their knowledge in working with people, balancing business, sensitivity & compassion were excellent. Being a social worker as profession for many years, I was amazed with their sensitivity in handling people, and conducting business. You are to be commended for your excellent and strong leadership, good communication in giving direction and following through with your delegated tasks. I was amazed with the volume of sales that your team accomplished in selling our furniture, belongings, etc. etc.
Thank you April, Richie and Jackie, and you can count that I will recommend your company in our town.
Take care and more success in your business. Aida (Franklin Lakes)
Hello, I don't remember if I contacted you about Henry. He and his helpers were excellent. The clean out of Rhein Court went beyond my expectations! They left the house spotless. I would recommend not only our services, but Henry's as well. Thank you, The Giugliano's
Thank you again for a hugely successful sale of my mother’s estate that was held two weeks ago in Chatham.
The house contained over 50 years of “accumulation” by my parents and we are grateful that you and your team were able to sell a significant portion of the household’s contents. We still can’t believe the volume of items that were sold!
Throughout the entire process of this sale, we were impressed by your advice and expertise. Your confidence and knowledge of every aspect of estate sales was a great reassurance to us during a very stressful time.
I have also come to realize that one particularly important aspect of a successful estate sale is buyer turnout. I believe you must have a large and dedicated following, based on the crowd of people that turned out for the sale on both days. That surely contributed so much to the success of the sale. Lastly, I would like to thank your entire team that worked on the sale, during preparation and pricing, as well as on the actual sale days. Like you, every member of your team was knowledgeable and a pleasure to meet. They really are an outstanding group of folks.
Have no doubt that if anyone asks for a recommendation, April’s Estate Sales will be mine!
Sending kind regards,Barbara Edwards (Allentown, PA)
When my mother needed to move to a senior living accommodation we hired April's Estate and Tag Sales to conduct and estate sale at my mother's home. April was courteous and sensitive in her assessment of the house contents which was very much appreciated. Before the sale she and her team did an excellent job of displaying the items around the house and on tables. I was amazed at how good everything looked once they were displayed-if I wasn't selling items I definitely would have wanted to buy some of them. On both days of the sale, April and her team arrived on time and expertly managed the hoards of potential buyers so that the entrance to the house was orderly. We were pleased with the amount that was sold and the professional way in which the entire transaction was handled. We definitely recommend April's Estate and Tag Sales! Thank you April for all of your help! -June Vangerven (Essex Fells)
We highly recommend April's Estate Sales to anyone requiring estate or tag sale services. We needed an effective way to sell the contents of my parent's home after my mother's passing and had interviewed several estate liquidators. April had the highest recommendations. April and her staff were honest, trustworthy and dependable along with possessing a strong work ethic and paying attention to details. The contents were valued and displayed appropriately as April has over twenty years experience in the field of estate and tag sales. The sale was well advertised, efficiently organized and well attended. We were very pleased with the results and will use April again if the need arises. -Deborah and Bob Cargo (Chester)
I want to thank you for the manner in which you conducted our estate sale. Lois and I were very impressed the way you and your team set up the sale and efficiently priced all the items. We never realized how many items we had available, but you handled them without difficulty. The amount of people waiting in line the first morning is a testament to the following that you have generated over the years. As we all know, the famous October snowfall began at about noon on the second day of the sale, but it did not discourage you and prospective buyers kept on coming for another few hours. You and your team professionally handled the sale of the items and many of our neighbors who attended the sale were very impressed. We would be happy to recommend your services to anyone planning an estate or tag sale. -Ivan Scharer
On behalf of my mother and myself, I would like to thank you for a very successful estate sale. We very much appreciate your extensive preparation and set-up under very trying circumstances. Your advertising and marketing efforts were outstanding-What a crowd! April's estate sales has an enormous following. With your help we have accomplished our goal of selling over 90% of our possessions. I am very happy to have found your company on the internet and I would enthusiastically recommend your services to any prospective client. Thank you again -Mark DeBevoise, Lebanon, NJ
My husband and I recently hired April's Estate and Tag Sales to hold an estate sale at our home and could not have been more pleased with the results. Being new to the estate/tag sale business, we were unfamiliar to how things worked and were a little skeptical as to if these types of businesses would actually deliver the best price/value for our items. April and her knowledgeable team soon put our fears to rest by listening and involving us in the entire process. Not only did they price and conduct all transactions with the highest integrity, by they also marketed and staged our items to maximize interest and coordinated the pick-up/removal of furniture from our home without any issues. April's attentiveness and professionalism made this first time experience a very pleasant one for us. The sale exceeded our expectations and we would definitely use her services again. -Jill Oshita, Flemington, NJ
Hi April, I wanted you to know that we were extremely pleased with your service and outcome. The set-up was was fast, well organized and everything left neat and tidy. Your staff was very professional and made us and the customers feel at ease. Actually after the sales a customer came back to see if they could still look and happened to mirror my sentiments. The communication during the sale about the item we had a reserve on and the other questions were timely and the results were desirable. We will certainly recommend "April's Estate Sales" to any friends. -Fred Trent, Chester, NJ
My family and I highly recommend the services and personnel of April's Estate Sales for any type of estate/garage sale-from antiques to rummage. April and her crew have a good sense of how to price, display and sell items for maximum turnover; we were very efficient in their handling of the sale. We would definitely use them again. When it became time to break up our parent's home we thought we could do it ourselves; especially since we had some experience collecting and selling antiques and glassware. However, we quickly found ourselves overwhelmed. Our emotions got in the way, so did the distance, other family concerns, and sheer volume of items needing to be priced and organized. Not quite knowing where to turn, we started searching the internet an eventually came across several business dealing with estate sales. We choose April for her experience, work ethic, history in the business, client base and access to knowledgeable people. Our parents had a variety of interests resulting in extensive collections of elegant glass, fine china, antiques, furniture, tools, books and the usual accumulation of items from 80+ years of life. April and her crew came in, took 2-3 days to set-up and organized and then held the 3-day sale. We had full access to the house at all times, even though we chose not to be there during the majority of the sale hours. All paperwork, etc. was finalized immediately and efficiently after the close of the sale. We were very pleased with the results; and are considering another sale with April involving our own collections. Again, I would highly recommend April's Estate Sales, and thank her and her staff for a job well-done, and making this area of our lives less stressful.-Terri Markward, New York/Pennsylvania
My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the way you conducted our estate sale in Westfield recently. This complete preparation of our home by your staff, days ahead of the sale, reassured us that we had made the right choice in you...and the digital pictures on your website put your service over the top...as the people in line the first day had the pictures in their hands and they entered our home. The website and your network of people, dealers and buyers proved invaluable. Needless to say, the sale was a complete success, due in no small part to your onsite staff, Sherri, Jackie, John and Larry. They kept the crowds orderly, moved furniture and items as needed throughout the two days and kept track of everything in order. Realizing that you had another sale going on at the same time in a different town, it was also reassuring that you stopped by personally throughout the days just to check up and make sure everything was running smoothly...although that was not needed as, again your above crew had everything well in hand. Not a scratch was put on any part of our home throughout the two days-despite the fact that it rained the entire first day. We are very pleased with the entire experience, as your know our home is over 5,000 sq. feet and was a daunting task in our minds...until your staff took over. The piece of mind you provided is invaluable. Thanks again- Beth and Matt Nielsen, Westfield, NJ
I want to thank you for a very successful sale of my late brother’s estate. I feel you were confronted with an exceptional challenge – too many items and not enough room – but you and your crew made a good job of it and ended up exceeding our expectations. Sheri, Jacqueline and Dave were a pleasure to work with and did a good job of managing the hoard both inside and out – which, by the way, speaks well of your following for such specialized items as my brother had accumulated. I am happy to recommend your services. - Dave Ressler, Lake Hoptacong, New Jersey
We spoke this morning (Tues) and I have to say that the Tinton Falls sale was the first estate sale of yours. I have been to many many estate sales but by far you and your team are so in a league of your own. I will not recommend any other estate services than you and you alone!
Blaise Furiato (www.blaisendesigns.com)
I just want to thank you and your staff (Richie, Wendy, etc.) for holding such an incredible house sale at my home last week. I can't say enough about it. From start to finish, everything went smoothly and I got exactly what I wanted from the sale. I will recommend you to everyone I know!

Boy, we were happy to fiind April of April's Estate Sales. April met with me several times and was able to answer all of my questions and provide insurance which was extremely important. She seemed to really know her stuff and in working with her and her team this was totally reinforced over the many days of setup and the two 3 day estate sales she did for us in Westfield. Her team was extraordinary and worked so hard. They were extremely good to work with and were so helpful in separating the huge amount of material into sale items, donate items and what was junk. And then they made the items for sale look so fabulous, talk about wonderful organizing and staging! They also went above and beyond in helping us sort through a huge volume of things and even in helping us get the most room possible in our dumpsters! When it is your family home it can be very difficult, but they were extremely respectful. All of her team were as knowledgeable and hard working as April though I do need to give special mention to Dave and Richie. They both were instrumental in the day we cleared and sorted the full floor attic which was packed. In all of that stuff Richie found a small box of china from my grandmother that I thought had been lost forever. We had a huge response to the sales and they managed the crowds so well. The many photos for the sale on April's Estates website really helped generate interest. Aprils was always immediately reachable by phone or text throughout the entire process of setup through sale.
Andrea M in Westfield (7/2014)
I want to thank you and your staff for doing such a great job. Very professional. I would recommend you. Again, thanks!!
Kathleen Martin (9/2014)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for all your efforts in making a difficult situation for me a success. I commend all of you for your professionalism in handling my estate. I will certainly recommend you for future sales for others. Thank you all again.
Catherine Harvey (Blairstown, NJ 10/2014)
Love all your sales, very professional, friendly staff, beautiful setups in the homes I have been to. Keep up the good work... looking forward to your next sales
Dawn Lemmerman 2/01/15
We were faced with the difficult task of liquidating and cleaning out the rented condo of a dear friend who passed away unexpectedly. It was made much more difficult since we live 1700 miles away.
April Gallagher's professionalism associated with holding an estate sale, presenting the items for sale, and selling as much as possible really helped us avoid numerous, expensive trips to handle this ourselves.
She also went above and beyond when she offered to help locate someone who could remove the items that didn't sell, as well as sweep out the condo before returning it to the landlord.
We highly recommend April for any estate sale services. Again we wish to thank her and her staff for such a professional service.
Jimmy Niemann / Bedminster, February 2015
I have just returned from picking up the cash proceeds of a 2 day estate sale conducted by April and her hard working staff. First, I must say that I am amazed at how lucrative the sale was despite taking place on the heels of a horrible snow storm that stopped New Jersey in its tracks. In fact, I had suggested to April that maybe we should postpone the sale, but she was confident that we would get a good turnout. Her experience paid off -- she knows her estate sale afficionados and knows that they follow her sales in particular. So, a little inclement weather won't keep them away from an estate sale that she is conducting. This is where her experience and reputation pays off -- she has attracted a reliable following of professionals like herself who get the job done, no matter what the weather!
My situation is that I am the Executor for the estate of a widow who lived to be in her 90's (as did her husband who predeceased her by a number of years). So they had accumulated two long lifetimes' of furnishings and collectibles from their travels. In short, I was dreading getting rid of all the stuff since I have a full-time job and no time to devote to organizing or supervising an estate sale.
No worries! April scheduled one day to come in with her experienced crew of hard workers to organize items for the sale. Then, her Trojan workhorse, Dave Butterfield, came an extra day by himself to haul items from the cottage on the property to the screened-in porch so that people would not have to trek through the snow to the cottage which had more collectibles, furniture and furnishings to sell. Dave just kept going back and forth between the house and the cottage even though it was snowing and managed to move the bulk of the cottage contents into the main house so I didn't have to worry about missing out on customers who would not venture out to the cottage through the snow.
Having top-flight dedicated personnel is what sets April's Estate and Tag Sales apart. On the days of the sale, her staff was out spreading salt on the walkway to ensure the safety of potential customers.
So, in summary, the 2 day sale went off without a hitch, drawing eager purchasers both days. I highly recommend Aprils' Estate and Tag Sales without reservation and award them 5 stars out of 5 possible.

Just wanted to add my name to the list of happy customers who used April's Estate Sales to liquidate a family member's belongings. When my cousin died last June, I was both sad and overwhelmed, as her death was unexpected and I suddenly found myself in charge of an estate, with very little time to spare within my own busy life, not to mention that I live several states away! April and her staff made this sad and difficult situation much easier to deal with and I am grateful for both her expertise and efficient manner in which she tagged, organized and sold a household of things including a car! Honestly, I don't know what I would have done without her help. The day of the sale was snowy and icy and April not only had the deck and driveway area cleared, she also bought and installed a new battery when the car in the garage refused to start. She went above and beyond.
Thank you April from the entire Breeding family! Florham Park, NJ February 2015
We recently had our estate sale and we were so amazed by the professionalism, courtesy, respect and hard work with all the people who were involved in making it so successful.
We would highly recommend using April's Estates Sales. It could not have gone any better and definitely went way beyond our expectations. Thank you for such a wonderful job!
Toni Sisbarro (Clinton, 5/2015)
Our sale went great! Very very happy with Richie - he was a total pro and very sweet. We almost truly sold every piece of furniture in the house. He actually went through the house and took pictures of most of the rooms to show me! I don't know many people, but if anyone is ever looking for someone to do an estate sale, I will give them your name for sure. I will also tell Evelyn's friends in Bay Head as well as my attorney who lives and works down there how wonderful your service was. Annette Kiss, Bay Head 12/13/15
Will write a formal letter but wanted to let you know we were delighted with the services you provided. Jacqueline and Wendy were just terrific and we are so happy we made the decision to go with you. Thanks so much.
Pam and Pat Kiernan, Basking Ridge NJ 5/2015
We went to your sale on Eyland Ave in Roxbury and purchased a washer and dryer and many other items. The people that worked that sale were so great to work with. Very professional, friendly and helpful. They did a great job,
Marian Succasunna, June 2015
Your sales are great.

I just wanted to tell you how happy we were with your expert and professional service. You were a pleasure to work with and your people: Frank, Larry, Jacqueline and Robin were absolutely perfect, reliable and conscientious. Please use us as a reference if need be. Tama Elish, Westfield June 2015
I wanted to take this opportunity to express how pleased I was with your service. From you to the pricing crew to the actual sale crew, the experience was positive and everyone was very professional, helpful, efficient and pleasant. I will gladly recommend your service in the future. Diana Pabers, Legal Assistant / Szaferman, Lakind, Blumstein & Blader P.C. Pennington, November 2015
I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I visited your sale in Kearny this morning and purchased some Christmas decorations. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it! The 2 ladies on your staff (Gina and Janine) were very helpful & nice, and I just wanted to compliment them! They represent April's Estate Sales very well, and I plan to watch for other April's sales going forward. Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving! Helene Tyminski / Kearny / 11.21.15
My name is Cory Orlando (908.963.0512) and I had a great experience last week at your Washington sale. I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful person named Jill. She was extremely helpful and polite to me. You are so lucky to have someone like Jill working for you. Any of your sales within 20 miles, I will attend hoping to meet Jill again. David was also very helpful. PS - have to be careful with Jill, she makes me spend more than I want to.
John and Sheri did a wonderful job of preparing, organizing, and handling the details of Ray's estate sale. They were hard working, focused and professional. We wanted to be certain to thank them as well as commend them on a job very well done. We will not hesitate to recommend your services.
Ray and Teri Ostrom, Budd Lake, 4/2016
Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job your team did for us this past weekend. Jacqueline with Richie, Sara and Frank were so pleasant, responsive and capable! We are impressed and grateful!
MeriLynn Blum, Ringwood 4/25/2016
I am writing to thank you very much for your handling of our recent estate sale. Sheri and her team were outstanding in the preparation, setup and the administration of the sale itself.
The amount of time and effort that they gave was truly unbelieveable and greatly appreciated. Once again, thank you very much
