A few comments from previous clients
"One of the best things I've ever done is hire Kim Teaver and Company to manage my mom's estate sale! This was my first experience with an Estate Sale and I had read horror stories from people who did not choose their company wisely. From my very first phone call with Kim (and many to follow) she was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We knew upon meeting her that we had found the right person. She was organized and thorough, offered valuable suggestions and had great people working for her.
From beginning to end Kim exceeded our expectations. My mom had a LOT of stuff including many collections, furs, vintage clothing, furniture, and a HUGE Department 56 Snow Village display, etc., and Kim handled all of that with ease. If you haven't guessed by now, we wholeheartedly recommend Kim Teaver & Company! I don't know what we would have done without her."
"We had a wonderful experience with Kim Teaver & Company! My mother was faced with the daunting task of downsizing and Kim came to the rescue. We knew that Mom couldn’t take everything with her to her new location but just didn’t know what to do with the many “treasures” that remained. We met with Kim Teaver and knew immediately that we made the right call. Her professionalism, knowledge of the market, strong following, honesty and confidence won us over. She truly cared about us and our "treasures" and her reassurance helped us through a challenging transition. We couldn’t be happier with the results and know you will not be disappointed. Thank you Kim!!"

"Kim Teaver and Company are simply the best. We had a complex move to an apartment while also moving 2 adult children, figuring out what family heirlooms to move to their new apartments, what pieces to keep for our apartment and what to sell.
Kim’s initial consultation was so great. She is sensitive to your love of your family heirlooms knowing they are part of your cherished memories no matter what the market value. She accurately prices everything, including the valuables so you get the best price possible. She is honest and knowledgeable about the market. She keeps up with trends in antiques and styles of today’s buyers and dealers.
She makes sure that everyone takes off shoes and wears foot protection during the sale so there is no damage to floors. Her staff sets up the sale to protect your home, valuables and security.
The sale was arranged in such a charming way that our home looked like a boutique. Everything was set out in each room beautifully with such care and style that complemented our 95 year old south Minneapolis home. The photos on the website were really good and showed off the items very nicely. If you would like her to do it, she arranges donation for items that don’t sell and you will get a statement to obtain your tax deduction. She will even get a dumpster for you to throw away what you want to be rid of.
Everything is taken care of to help you move with the least worry and hassle. Her staff are all nice and respectful. We highly recommend Kim Teaver and Company"

"I would just like to take some time to let you know from the bottom of my heart that I truly appreciate all the hard work that you and your team did on my grandmothers house. You all made a very hard time so much easier for me and my family. Everyone of my family members that met you, told me how wonderful and caring you were whether they met you during the actual sale or surprised you the weeks prior as you were setting up. Never once did I ever feel like we were just a paycheck for you, and I truly thank you for that Kim. You and your team are A-1 on my list."

"Kim did an amazing job from start to finish! Her experience and skill is excellent, she knows what will be of interest to the buyers and merchandises everything expertly. Her sensitivity and respect to the emotional aspect of the estate sale was admirable. It’s not easy to witness the treasured items of a loved one be ticketed and sold and Kim’s compassion and care is genuine. The sale was successful, fast and the house was left in great shape for a final clean before closing."
“Words can’t adequately express my appreciation for all the time and effort Kim Teaver spent on making sure our Estate Sale was the “bomb.” Not only did she sell the contents of the house wall-to-wall, but one would expect, in the winter, for the house to be a mess afterwards. Not so. She made sure the customers had ‘footies’ and that the entry rugs were protected from the elements.
Kim and her staff are knowledgeable, friendly, professional and are simply the best at what they do. It’s important for a company to possess these attributes but what sets apart Kim’s company from others is her customer service and customer care.
Our home sale was quick and the closing felt even faster. We had to travel from AZ to MN to prepare for the sale and I was nervous; would anyone attend the sale so close to Christmas, could Kim put together a sale on such short notice; would she follow through on her promises. Not to worry, Kim was on the job then entire time. She has the means to market her sales, has a great ‘bedside’ manner (she took excellent care of this nervous Nelly), is an encourager, keeps the client informed, is reliable, ethical, responsible and frankly she’s just a fun person to be around.
Would we use Kim’s services again? In a heartbeat. Would I refer people to her? You bet. She is a professional’s professional.”

"I decided to drastically downsize, leaving the work to sell the contents of my townhouse to Kim Teaver's company. After selling the townhouse Kim took over and made this a turn key event for me. This was a great experience! Kim made this easy for me. She created videos in every room of the house showing how the items were staged. Kim was professional throughout the entire process keeping me informed on how the sale was going. Kim's company is geared to help families resolve the complexities of selling the contents of their house in a short period of time. If you are downsizing, there is a 5 star company in Minneapolis that can meet your needs. That is Kim Teaver and company."
"The 'Before and After' is almost impossible to believe. This home had over 60 years of life's collections. Now, it's ready for new memories to be made by a new family. I'm just glad I had Kim take care of this for us - I can not fathom having to do this ourselves!"

I was very thrilled (to hear) on Sunday evening ... "Well, it's all gone." It's a tough thing - to deal with all the stuff with the mixed feelings of memories and not knowing what to do with it all. Thanks for taking so much of that off our hands.
"You did a great job helping me during a very stressful time. Thank you very much for doing such a thorough and thoughtful job. Great communication working with you from Colorado was simple and easy. Thank you!"
"Thank you for assisting us with the Estate Sale. You contacted us at a time of need and you worked with us in the time frame needed, expeditiously. You were awesome! Your were an answer to prayer! You were a miracle worker! After our major purge of clutter, you organized all the items in the house and garage while we tended to our work and life commitments. You were always up front, honest and optimistic with us and never once did we experience apprehension or hesitation, which can happen in situations like these. Our Estate Sale was eventful and successful with your help. Thank you."
