Lott’s Treasures and Estate Sales went above and beyond the call of duty to help us! My father-in-law passed away and we needed to put his house on the real estate market. Although the house had great treasures in it, it was too crowded with “stuff” to try to sell. Our agent recommended we have an estate sale, which we knew absolutely nothing about. I called Lott’s Treasures and spoke to Steve.
Within 2 days, Steve and Don met us at the house. They worked around our schedule since we live in Alabama and the sale was to be in Georgia. Their company was very busy at the time, but they made sure to accommodate us. In just over a week, they had the house organized, priced and ready for the sale. We did not have to be there, they took care of it all! What a relieve! Any items that didn’t sell were donated and we didn’t have to do a thing. We returned to an empty, clean house and now had the money to continue to maintain the house until we sell it
This is a process that would have taken us weeks if not months to do ourselves and brought with it headaches and heartache. We will be forever grateful for Lott’s Treasures! Steve and Don are awesome, caring people!

There are no words for me to express my gratitude to Steve, Don and the staff at Lott's Treasures. They conducted an estate sale for my family in April. This was one of the hardest things I've done since my Father passed away and my Mother was put into an assisted living home. The sincerity of Steve and Don was top notch. When they came to my parent's home they assured me that they would stage it and I wouldn't recognize it when they were ready for the sale. I went over the night prior to the sale and was totally AMAZED! It looked beautiful. Steve, Don and I had the opportunity on several occasions to sit and talk. I know I have two new friends and know they would do anything for me if needed. I highly recommend their company if you are in the need of an estate sale.
Being the typical, clichéd cynical New Yorker type that is often described in someone’s tales of their New York trips to or vacations spent at: The one that often feels that he’s being conned or taken advantage of if even asked a question from a stranger. It fell upon me to have to go down to Georgia and take care of my mother’s estate. One of the things I had to take care of was an Estate Sale of the contents of her house. Now of course me, smart guy, I could sell this stuff myself on Ebay I do have over 1300 positives so no problem well.... Yeah sure, like I have the time and energy to do that. One or two pieces maybe but a houseful. No way. I had to find a company to do the Estate sale. From my home in NYC I called some estate sale companies I found on the web to set up appointments. When I got down to Marietta I had about 6 appointments in one week.
The first was with Lott’s. Unfortunately the weather was very Georgia like and I got a call from Steve Lott saying that he was iced in and couldn’t come. We rescheduled so that instead of being the first he became the last. Steve expressed his concern about that turnaround. That it might work against him. I didn’t disagree. Anyway I met with those other 5 companies, did walk-arounds and had sit-downs. I asked a lot of questions in the beginning but I quickly learned what I really needed to know so it got easier and the questions fewer. So by the time Steve and Don did meet with me I knew what I wanted to know. Turns out they didn’t have to worry. After the usual walk-around and a short sit-down I knew that they were the ones. Why? Well there were a number of reasons. Most importantly to someone like me who sells on Ebay they know that you can’t identify and price a house full of stuff in a few days. They said they needed 3 weeks to set up as opposed to a few days. Only one of the other companies said that same thing so that really narrowed it down since that company had other issues. Nothing worse than showing mom’s old vase that you think is valuable and them just glancing over it and walking away.
I could go on about it but just let me say that they are the best choice I could have made. They were on top of everything. Incredibly patient with me. They made me more money than I thought possible. And isn’t that the most important thing? Well that and helping me maintain my sanity. I made a point of not being there for the sale and left everything in their hands. Parking, dealing with the locals and cleaning up after. All good. Seriously, I think that they are the best. Honest, reliable, hardworking and true to their word. Take it from Mr. Cynical they are that good. If you need to have an Estate Sale by all means see as many different companies as you can but definitely include Lott’s and you will not regret it.
I highly recommend Lott's Treasures to manage any estate sale. Steve, Don and the rest of their staff did an amazing job of the estate sale for which I hired them. I felt devastated and overwhelmed after the loss of my sister but the personal service Lott's Treasures provided made the transition easier and relieved the pressure I felt to accomplish a huge task. It was a turnkey operation as they took care of so many details and offered resources for other services I needed. They were very helpful, friendly and went over and above what was required. I could not have asked for better service and feel very fortunate to have found this trustworthy company.
I used Lott's Treasurer's Estate Sales for a recent Estate Sale at my home. From the very beginning of my experience with Steve and Don, I am happy to say it was a very pleasant and smooth experience. I haven't been in the best of health lately and they were very considerate and helpful. They, and their staff, are very professional, helpful and caring. I would be very happy to give them an excellent rating!
Sometimes it seems rare to find someone who does what they say they will do - and even more rare to do it when they promise to do it. Steven and Don fulfilled every commitment in assisting my sister and me with selling and clearing out the items in our Mom's house to get it ready to sell. They were prompt and courteous throughout the process. They answered our questions, returned our calls, asked us when in doubt about something, and kept us "in the loop" the whole time. We really appreciated their willingness to do the expected and then to go beyond with their helpfulness. It is refreshing to work with such nice people. There is no way that we could have accomplished this without them.
Lott's Treasures stepped up to help at a very difficult time. My family member was killed by a drunk driver and suddenly we were faced with so many tasks it was overwhelming. Don came to the rescue scheduling the estate sale in a timely manner, sorting through all her belongings, handling everything including the hurdle of getting Buyers into the gated community through an unpredictable gate. The staging of the items for sale was outstanding. They even tried to find a new owner for her two cats, Bradley & Vivian, homeless since their owner's death. Lott's Treasures took a load off my shoulders when I needed assistance; I will be forever grateful.
