A Family History

Since 1998, Michelle and Stephen Raybeck have been buying and selling on eBay, and Pink Dog Estate Sales is a natural outgrowth of their resale practice. They know how to find value in old things, and how to prepare and price them for profitable resale.

For the Raybeck family, finding new homes for old things is a labor of love, something from which they derive great satisfaction. Pink Dog Estate Sales, founded in 2013, generally does four or five sales a month and brings a strong following of regular customers.

Michelle, an alumna of New Jersey City University, speaks Spanish and holds an appraiser's credential from the prestigious Asheford Institute of Antiques. Both Michelle and Stephen have passed rigorous State of New Jersey background checks.

We take the time to walk through your home slowly, marking the things you want to keep, finding out history, researching value, obtaining appraisals where needed. We photograph everything and place advertisements on multiple popular Web sites. We bring all the equipment we need to set up the merchandise to best advantage. When we open your home to the public, your things will be clean, organized and presented in a way that makes it easy for buyers to examine them.

Plenty of Preparation
