One of the most unique features about this service is the Family and Friends Online Auction. This allows family and friends in remote locations to preview, bid or claim on items they wish to have from an estate simply by using the password provided by the estate executor. Proceeds from any private sale can be divided equally amongst the heirs, or can go towards payment of final expenses.
The website is the brainchild of Christina Gross and has come about through her personal experiences with helping family and friends find ways of selling a loved one’s possessions. Her search for online resources uncovered sites that could help with locating professional estate liquidators, but failed to uncover any other solutions. After taking a course in estate liquidation and doing extensive research, Gross developed a plan for a website offering practical, inexpensive estate sale solutions online, and this website is the result.
Gross said “Familyestatesale.com is a premier site, far beyond what I imagined initially, that will be a godsend to individuals who don’t know where to turn when they have to liquidate an estate. During such an emotional time, people want direct, uncomplicated options for dealing with a loved one’s personal property. FESS offers practical, affordable solutions, whether the liquidation is due to a death, a relocation, or just downsizing.”
