  • Linda Owens | Estate Sale Client
    "I am satisfied beyond compare with the service and experience. In fact, I will contact you again for my own sale of cherished items. Bravo!
  • Jacob M. | Yelp Reviewer, 5 Stars
    "My partner and I recently visited Gary Germer's "Estate Gallery" in NE and were completely surprised by the quality of the items they had for sale! They had glass from Tiffany, Lalique, Steuben, Waterford etc. Pottery from Rookwood and Roseville. Lots of jewelry and decorator items, too. You'd never know it by the exterior. It's like a best-kept secret, a little jewel box of a place. It reminded me of places I've stumbled upon in New York City."
  • Kelly | Estate Sale Client
    "Gary Germer & Associates ran a sale at my NE Portland home and I couldn't be happier. Their team was extremely patient with me. A lot of memories were in that house and it proved to be an emotional exercise. I would have never guessed that the items for sale would total almost $20,000. I am extremely happy and can recommend them without hesitation. Thank you!"
  • Carly Condon | Estate Sale Client

  • Melissa O. | Yelp
     "I consigned some items and received my money, after a very fair consignment fee, quickly after they sold. The staff are friendly and very professional, as well as knowledgable. Overall, a wonderful experience!
  • Stephanie H. | Via Yelp
     "Treasure hunting at its best! Just love the estate sales they have. I have been to the last 3. I always think to myself, 'I doubt if I'll find anything' and I always do. It's the hunt of the treasure. They have amazing deals on every estate I have been to."
  • Jordan H. | Via Yelp
     "We found an amazing solid wood carved dressing screen. We were able to get it for an excellent price and were also provided superb assistance from the people working the event. They provided a tape measurer so I could make sure it would fit in my sedan and after we bought it, they even helped me load it into my car (it probably weighs close to 80 lbs.)"
