It’s a pleasure to recommend Black Diamond Estate Sales, Nick and his team to anyone looking for a professional, honest, estate sale coordinator.
I first met Nick after two other companies scheduled appointments with me and flaked out without even a phone call; something I later learned was all too common. I called Nick in distress because I was under a tight time frame and he immediately promised to meet with me after his last client, even though he was way across town.
Nick was professional, knowledgeable and very thorough. He took me through the entire process, set my expectations and walked me through each line of the contract. By the way, the contract was very mutual – designed to protect both Black Diamond and the client. There was nothing unfair about it; I was completely comfortable with the terms. I knew from the first meeting that Nick wanted a successful sale as much as I did!
When he and his team arrived to set up, (a week before the sale so they would have plenty of time to take pictures and market the sale on various web sites) they we patient, respectful and very helpful. They fully understood my desire to withhold some items from the sale and at the same time they let me know their potential value so I could make an informed decision.
May I offer some advice? Ask your potential company how they market their sales. Are they using social media? How many pictures do they take? How many websites do they publish on? What does their signage look like? How far in advance to they start to publicize? Compare their answers to Black Diamond. If they don’t leverage technology, start marketing early and have brilliant signage as does Black Diamond – don’t even bother with them.
Here’s where you can separate the average from the above average. The weekend of my sale we had nearly two days of steady rain. TWO DAYS! Instead of this halting my sale, we still had a successful event. Why? Black Diamond did a superior job prepping, using technology and they did a fabulous job selling and negotiating with buyers. They are young, forward thinking and way ahead of their competition. I’m so pleased with the work they did and I think you will be too!

Words cannot express how grateful I am for all of your professional hard work in coordinating and executing the sale of the many items from my mother’s estate. Your ability to organize so many items in a short period of time was simply amazing. The way the sale was laid out, staffed and conducted made the sale a huge success.
As this whole process was incredibly difficult for me (both emotionally and physically), your kind family and staff made me feel like I was “family” and it made all the difference in the world. Many of my friends who attended the sale and customers told me that they felt it was incredibly well done, efficient and accommodating.
I highly recommend your service to anyone and when the time comes for me to move I will once again call upon Black Diamond.

Black Diamond was the first estate seller I called. I met with Nick and he explained how an estate sale works, what to expect and what not to expect. As we talked, his sincerity, honesty and integrity became very evident to me and I hired him on the spot.
He and his staff had the whole house ready for the sale in a little over a day. The sale was well advertised and as a result was a resounding success. Nick arranged for a Salvation Army pick up for any leftover items. On that day Nick came to the house and stayed with me the whole time to ensure that everything went well.
I was very pleased with how smoothly and professionally everything was handled. I would never for one moment hesitate to recommend Black Diamond Estate Sales.
