9:50 AM, 7/29/2016 We have never gone through the experience of an estate sale so we had lots of questions and apprehension. Theresa and Alex patiently walked us through the process very professionally. At first we balked at the fee, but once it was over we feel it was a bargain for the amount of work they put into set up and managing the sale. We were very pleased and relieved with the outcome. Thank you to all of your staff.

From: Alicia M 5/17/16 Testimonial from Alicia L We just finished with my two day estate sale on May 14 and May 15, 2016. Alex Bernstein and Theresa Dube' were stellar from start to finish and I do not believe I can say everything I would want to in this testimonial. Calls were answered immediately, action was taken immediately, work was professionally staged, sales were highly generated and positive attitudes were abundant throughout this process. I live out of state and everything was handled for me, I just had to okay decisions which were respectfully accepted. My home once full of treasured possessions is now emptied completely by Willmatt Hill Estate and is ready to sale. This company takes all the worries in the world away from you and is very fair with their contract. Thank you Alex and especially Theresa who emotionally helped me part with my possessions with empathy and sincerity and for all of this I am most grateful this company represented this sale for me.

Hi, My daughter and I had the pleasure of attending the sale yesterday, on Portland Ave., in St. Paul.I live near Madison, WI and wasn't sure I wanted to make the drive. I'm so glad I did. Worth every minute of the drive. The sale was an absolute pleasure. You ran the sale so professionally. You were true to your word - you treat everyone equally and fairly. I've been to several sales around the Madison area and clearly, there is favoritism towards the antique dealers. It's very frustrating. And their staff are always so cranky. They should attend one of your sales - they could learn a lot!Your entire staff were amazing! So pleasant and so helpful. I asked so many questions, it was such a busy sale and they still took the time to answers question. They were so kind, so patient and were never annoyed. They even seemed to enjoy answering my questions. I can't thank them enough.It was the first estate sale my daughter has been to. I am so happy we chose your sale. It was such a great experience for her. Again, your staff were so kind to her and so helpful.Looking forward to attending more of your sales. . . Thank you for such a great experience.

3/14/16 Subject: Testimonial Dear Alex and Theresa, Amazing is an overused word, but in regards of the job you all did on our estate sale it is very appropriate. When we decided to sell our house we were faced with selling all our possessions; a task that seemed impossible to us. Alex to the rescue. Best decision we could have made. I watched with amazement how the crew went to work sorting positioning and pricing all the many items that we had. I could not believe how much work there was involved. My advice is do not attempt this by yourself call Alex you will not regret it.

Alex and Teresa,  On August 28th 2020, we had the most amazing estate sale that was set up by Teresa and Alex and their team. Right from the start I knew this company was a great fit. They are so knowledgeable and extremely organized. They knew their pricing, quality, manufacture, and origins. It was truly impressive! I was completely blown away by each team member doing their part to ensure a profitable and successful sale. I would hire them again and again. I highly recommend Willmatt Hill Estate Sales. Thank you Teresa and Alex and your team, You are the best! Mary

But when it came time to sale my parent’s home of 50 years, we needed to hold an estate sale. With a recommendation from a friend, I called Willmatt Hill Estate Sales. After the first meeting with Alex I knew I was in good hands. When it came time to stage the sale I then met Theresa and the team. They had everything marked and ready to go within 4 days. Remember…we had 50 years of items. The sale went off without a hitch. They were even able to sell my father’s car. By the end of the second day of the sale almost everything was sold. The remaining items were basically worthless “odd and ends”. For a very reasonable fee they even removed these items and took them to be donated, and then cleaned the home. What a great experience ! From start to finish, it was handled with care and professionalism. Thank you for making this bitter sweet part of our lives so easy and pain free. The Cremers Family

Date: Thu, 24 Oct 2013 16:41:21 From: Gail and David L. Dave and I are writing to express our thanks to Willmatt Estates Sales. Downsizing to a home in another state that was one third the size of the home we were leaving seemed to be an overwhelming task. The moving sale you organized made a very stressful time much easier for both of us. You and all of your staff were efficient, organized, and courteous in helping us deal with our move. Your website displaying our items was well done! My friends felt our possessions looked lovely and well organized. They also told me they heard many positive comments about our home and how the sale was staged. We felt the process from set up to clean up was well done. Thank you! David and Gail

After having interviewed 3 companies, We knew that we had found Willmatt Hill to be the best one for our situation. Right at the first interview with Alex, we felt a connection, and began to relax and lose some of the stress associated with this kind of undertaking. In all the contacts we had with Alex and Theresa, With their professional nature, and a little humor, they calmed and guided us step by step through the process. Their staff was friendly, caring, and wonderful to work with. Deanne was a great help in keeping us on track. They organized, labeled and displayed everything beautifully. Their pricing was realistic, leading to almost everything selling by the end of the second day. Willmatt Hill's sale far exceeded our expectations, and we have given their name to numerous friends and acquaintances already, and will continue to do so. We were blessed to have found Willmatt Hill Estate Sales. Most Sincerely, Jan and John T

Through family inheritance, 25 years of marriage, two kids leaving home...we had a lot of stuff. Due to a long work commute and kids making their own lives, we decided to move and downsize. The prospect of going through all of our things was overwhelming...and even if we did go through everything, what would we do with it? Enter Willmatt Hill! Alex came to our initial consult and was clearly very knowledgeable about the value of things, and also was very consultative about our expectations. We agreed to hire them on the spot. Through the weeks in advance of the sale I called Theresa countless times with many questions and she was always very pleasant and extremely patient.

Oct 30, 2015, at 1:22 PM What do I look for in choosing a company?…5 star reviews! I visited several estate sales before I decided on Willmatt Hills. It was their professionalism, warmth, and expertise in guiding you through the entire process, that made me so grateful that I had chosen them. We had over 800 people at our sale due to their extensive network of clients. We were able to ‘down size’ and move from our family home of 34 years. Teresa’s warmth and humor gave us a new perspective on things we thought were almost impossible ‘to let go’. Alex researched the value of our precious items. Their incredible team displayed our things in manner that enhanced our sales. We felt a part of the entire process. We are so grateful to each member of the team for making this change possible. We couldn’t have done it alone. It was an enormous hurdle and we made it! Thanking all of you at Willmatt Hills. You have our highest recommendation of 5 stars!!

November 2, 2015 I’m delighted to write a sparkling letter of recommendation for Willmatt Hill Estate Sale Company! Making the decision to have an estate sale to prepare our parents’ farm for sale was not an easy one. We were incredibly worried about turning our family home over to people whom we didn’t know, and inviting the public to access our homestead was a weird feeling. But to our surprise, the outcome was excellent! Alex and Theresa have an incredibly, empathetic crew of energetic, kind-hearted people who understand the pain of property disbursal and were very supportive and fun to work with from start to finish. Preparation took just five days, and during that time we developed a jovial rapport with all of them and they did a beautiful job laying out our family’s belongings in a meaningful and tasteful way. They are wonderfully efficient and businesslike.
