Personal Property Auctions

Lincoln Crum Realty & Auctions offers real solutions for downsizing, right-sizing or total estate liquidation.

With hundreds of online personal property auctions under our belt, we understand the wants and needs of the aging population of Baby Boomers and the adult children helping them manage their choices. We specialize in helping the decision makers liquidate their parent’s estate to either assist with the funds needed for long-term/end of life care or expenses that come after death and closing out of the estate. We provide flexible solutions that assist families and individuals to meet their objectives by giving the best possible service at affordable fees so our clients realize the highest net dollar from their assets.

We believe an online auction is the best way to sell bulk amounts of personal property whether it is everyday household items, collectibles, autos, tools or miscellaneous items. This is the most cost effective method and remains a very controlled environment for the sale of all personal property.

We do it all! We sort trash, identify items of value and list those items for sale and prepare for marketing. We can do this at your location or pack and move it to our warehouse for the same process. Your clients need only remove the personal property items they want to keep. We do the rest!

We have received feedback that our services have greatly reduced the stress and burden families experience when helping their aging loved one move on to the next stages of life.
