Jeff and Klaudia did an excellent job with our estate sale. I was very impressed with the way the items were staged. They provided a personal touch, which I thought was very nice. I would highly recommend American Artifacts.

Jeff and Klaudia were truly a pleasure to work with. When we first met Jeff we knew we had the right person to handle our sale. Then we met Klaudia and we were sold. They are good people and we never doubted their honesty. We felt at ease with all their decisions. Bob is also amazing. We hung out at the sale just for something to do and we had the time of our lives. You feel sad when you lose someone and have to sell away their life, but Jeff and Klaudia made it a wonderful experience. We were very impressed with Klaudia's arrangement of everything. If ever the need arises we would certainly use their service again.

When our mother passed away suddenly and it came time to deal with her home, we were completely and utterly overwhelmed. The house was filled, top to bottom, and the job just seemed impossible to tackle. After speaking with Jeff at American Artifacts we felt an immediate sense of relief – he was able to put us at ease and made everything sound so easy. Still skeptical, it didn’t take us long to realize that he and his team know what they’re doing. What seemed like a monumental, years to accomplish, type of job to us, they had organized and ready to go in just a few short weeks. Every single person from American Artifacts was amazing, all so kind and funny and a pleasure to be around. What could have been a nightmarish emotional rollercoaster ride was made smooth and easy because of them. We will, without a doubt, be referring anyone we can to American Artifacts. Thank you so much, Jeff, Klaudia, and team, for being such a pleasure to work with!

When my grandmother passed it was very difficult for our family. It was most unexpected and we were not prepared. Where do you go? How do you go on? What do you do with all of the memories and things that were so dear? She had a very large estate that included a boarding house, restaurant, vehicles and a lifetime of collecting. The task was daunting and we were emotionally worn out. We found American Artifacts online. We interviewed several estate sale companies and were looking for one that wouldn’t treat my grandmother’s estate as just another “job” but as something that was personal and important. Jeff and Claudie are experts in the estate sale business. They took time to listen to our concerns, accommodate our family’s special requests, work with our timeline (we had another death in the family and my mother had a heart attack and then broke her ankle) and get the most value for my grandmother’s estate. I cannot say enough about the job that they and their team did and am looking forward to doing my mother’s estate sale with them next year. Thank you Jeff, Claudia, Bob, Jim and the rest of the team. We appreciate you for a job well done!

A little over a year ago Jeff and Klaudia handled the successful estate sale at my mother's house so we did not hesitate to call on them again to handle the sale for my father in law's house. There was 65 years worth of everything imaginable. Words cannot express the sincere gratitude and respect we have for Jeff, Klaudia and their loyal staff. Their tireless work, along with their knowledge, extensive research and organization of all the items in the estate sale, went far and beyond our expectations. They individually tagged over 10,000 items. Their dedication to make this sale a success far exceeded everything we expected and we were totally pleased with the outcome of the sale. Twice, Jeff and Klaudia have made overwhelming tasks, easy and fun and we are forever grateful to them. We will recommend American Artifacts to all our friends and family.

We faced the somewhat daunting task of having two estate sales, one at my Mom's house and one at ours and relocating everyone to Minnesota, all in a relatively short window of time. A long phone call with Jeff and in-home visits with both Jeff and Klaudia, to my Mom's house and ours, gave us great confidence that they were the real deal and that we could proceed with great confidence in their talents and professionalism. They invested many hours preparing for each sale and proved to be tireless workers. They also do a first class job of marketing the sale. All items were individually priced and unique items were researched for their most current value. They were extremely respectful of all items and sought our counsel on numerous occasions about whether we really wanted to sell this or that. The days of the sale were organized and exciting. They encouraged us to be there, which we did for parts of each day at our house and one of the days at Mom's. They had two men who worked the sale with them, Bob and Tony, and they also cleaned out each house and donated left over items to charity. Each house was totally cleaned out so that we could put it up for sale. Each of these guys has a great work ethic and accommodated us in anything we needed. Jeff and Klaudia are diligent, thorough, thoughtful, honest, and lots of fun to be around. At every turn, they over-delivered on what they said they would do. I can't say enough about the very positive experience we had with them...we will always be grateful for the work they did for us...they are the best...final answer!

I really don't know if I can convey how pleased I am with the experience I had with Jeff and Klaudia. I was skeptical when I called them, having called many of their competitors and getting more discouraged by the minute. I was overwhelmed at having been asked to handle the estate sale of my 98 year old Aunt - still alive and sharp as a tack so it was important to hire the right people. I knew the minute I spoke to Jeff that they were the right people for the job. They took time to meet with my Aunt and with great respect and patience; walked her through what they would provide. Once hired, they spent hours setting up a sale that brought my Aunt the money she needed to live out her life the way she wished. The presentation and marketing was outstanding, the integrity and pride apparent in every bit of work they put in. I was updated every step of the way and presented with options, not rules. I recommend American Artifacts and hope the kindness Jeff and Klaudia showed my Aunt and I return to them tenfold!

I would like to thank Jeff, Klaudia, Bob and the rest of their crew for doing an outstanding job with the sale. A very professional, thorough and enjoyable experience. The entire thing was handled extremely well throughout the process. It was a true pleasure to work with people who know their craft well. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently. I highly recommend American Artifacts.

Jeff, Klaudia and Bob were thoroughly engaged in making our sale a great success. They worked to achieve our goals and we could not be happier. Many similar companies do not want the owner involved, they welcomed our participation. They made this an entertaining and fun experience helping to find treasures that were lost in the clutter. We truly appreciate their help.

We would like to thank Jeff, Klaudia and Bob for taking on what we thought was an overwhelming nightmare into a well organized, perfectly staged and fun sale. My parents house contained over 100 years of stuff. They took the time to research items and what I thought was junk turned into treasures. I learned from them never throw anything away. I did not hear one complaint about pricing and everyone I spoke with enjoyed the sale. They are professional, friendly and know how to draw a crowd and we were pleasantly surprised by the results of the sale. I would recommend American Artifacts to anyone considering an estate sale.

Professional, thorough, first class, knowledgeable, honest and respectful. These are all words used in other testimonials that help describe my experience with Jeff and Klaudia. I will never be able to adequately thank them for the amazing job they did with my parent's estate. I was faced with clearing out a completely stuffed 2,000 sq.ft. home with a full basement, under the constraints of a very short-time period to turn it over to the new owner. There were hundreds if not thousands of items, to sort, display and price. And, like any estate sale, there were also some unique circumstances that had to be considered. It was such a monumental task that other estate sale companies turned down the job. Jeff and Klaudia saw the potential and made it a very successful sale. They did a lot of work that was over and above the contract, more than exceeding my expectations. They had a sincere appreciation for unique stories behind a lot of the items, and showed respect for the estate. They didn't treat it like just a bunch of stuff. I was very impressed with how they organized the house, handled themselves with the neighbors, and how they ran the sale. They were welcoming and honest to customers, and fair in negotiating sales. They know their business well, have a lot of experience, and are determined to provide the best service. I have since recommended Jeff and Klaudia several times.

I recently had to move my mom into a senior living community, and knew I had to find a company that would be respectful, honest, and experienced. American Artifacts were just that and more. They presented my mom's home in an organized and welcoming manner. When my mom came to visit, she was completely satisfied with their pricing and display of her lifelong possessions. Fantastic job overall! Jeff and Claudia, I will be forever grateful for all your time and hard work you did for my mom and I. Thank you and bless you, Terrie

Jeff and Claudia are top shelf, very professional and thorough. They recently handled an estate sale for me where my expectations were exceeded. They took the time to research items and to establish prices that enticed the buyers without giving the items away. They marketed the sale well and took care of all the details. Overall a win-win situation for all. I will recommend American Artifacts to any friends or relatives considering an estate sale.
