I cannot say enough good things about the work performed by Laurie Zook and the entire Estatemax team. This project was with an old house filled with antiques and a barn. Laurie communicated at each step of the way and answered any questions I had. I would hire her again in a second. Experience matters in large estate sales and her years of experience shows in every step of the process.

Laurie Zook and her team are very experienced and professional. We were overwhelmed with moving out of our house after 23 years. Because of their experience with this it was easy and seamless. We were pleasantly surprised with the money made at the sale! It was a huge effort on their parts to get everything cleared out and empty on time. I am so glad we hired Laurie and Steve and the team!

Moving/downsizing is one of the most stressful events in your lifetime. Parting with precious items that you can no longer use is a difficult and daunting task. Laurie and Steve from EstateMax helped us to focus only on our upcoming move and the items we were keeping, and took all of the worry away about what to do with everything else.
