My wife recently passed and there were too many memories. My brother and sister-in-law recommended Brent to sell my home. I sold my home in 4 days and also downsized. Brent comes prepared and is very professional.

Brent can be considered “part of the family” as our family has been working with him for over 10 years. No doubt on who we were going to call to sell my grandparents home.

What’s the difference between Estate and Probate Sales?

Estate sales – A beneficiary of a deceased person by ways of inheritance lists and sells a property. The sale can be instructed by a will, trust or by means of probate. The sale is completed by way of court or by instruction of will or trust. Timelines are much shorter in duration as courts aren’t instructed to direct the sale by a will or trust.

Probate sales – A beneficiary of a deceased person’s property is divided among parties and is directed by the executor for the deceased person’s estate. With a probate sale, a homeowner has passed without a will (called “intestate”) giving direction to their estate. A real estate attorney or representative is appointed or hired to liquidate the property assets and are then distributed. At times, probate sales can be timely.
