Jim's wife, Kathy, has channeled her energetic husband's passion and has created her niche in the process. Kathy serves as the chief decorator and staging coordinator for the business. Her vision and attention to detail are the basics for our business image and style. The placement, angle, and spacing of Kathy's decorating is always tasteful and inventive. Above and beyond her skills, she has an eternal spirit of positivity and a universal friendly personality.
At an early age, a curiosity also stemmed in their son, Justin, who often traveled alongside, having fond memories of hunting down items from dad's treasure list. His love for all things rare and unusual ignited during his time in college, studying business and learning how this discipline could overlap with his enthusiasm for estate sales. Since then, Justin has collected 17 years of experience operating estate sales. Justin is also responsible for the companies business marketing, web design, photography, and social media. Justin is also very knowledgeable in evaluating art, antiques, coins, silver, and many other collectible categories.
