Testimonials

Dear Cathie:

Thank you so much for all the work you have done! I can't believe that people pay so much for all that old stuff. I am forever in your debt for rescuing all my old junk and making it available to sell. Thanks again.

My Dad is in process of selling his condo. We have a few really nice antiques and loads of decent furniture. Cathie was incredibly helpful and honest. They have work lined up so we are not able to secure their services yet she gave us a lot of leads. My Dad only wants a fair price and isn't looking to make big money. I really appreciate how Cathie handled the conversation with my Dad. Give these folks a try!

Donnelly and Donnelly ran my estate sale last week. I was thrilled with their work. Cathie spent about 5 hours a day- Monday-Friday to prepare my house for a Saturday-Sunday sale. She was very organized and did a great job with the pricing, merchandising and display. D&D had 3-4 people working my sale all weekend, so they could efficiently handle questions, sales, and manage the people coming through the house.

Donnelly & Donnelly has a large group of regulars, including antique and retailer stop owners. Some of these regulars came to Ballard from as far away as Gig Harbor and Sumner to purchase. And I was very happy with the sale total and received a check in the mail by Thursday- post sale.

As a real estate agent, I have recommended Cathie for several different estates that had mega items to organize. So very often people have collected all kinds of items over the years, and when they pass, they leave the families with a lot of beautiful things (and some not so beautiful). Cathie and her team organize these items so beautifully and carry out the sale with seemingly ease. Cathie knows the value of items and gains the true value for the families. She has been a great source for me to refer to clients. I know the job will be handled with respect and ease.

Cathie, I wanted to thank you very much for the excellent work you did for us in February. You set up, arranged and priced a great quantity of items in short order. You took care of the advertising and the sale with precision. Then you cleaned up the entire house, basement and yard and donated or disposed of the remainder. We were very happy with the result and amount you brought in.

I have used Cathie Tomlinson and her team to settle an estate in the disposition of its eclectic personal property, which Cathie accurately identified and sold. I also used her for the disposition of a decedent's collection of jewelry. I have been very satisfied with Cathie's work and do not hesitate to recommend her to others.

I have referred Cathie and Murphy to many of my clients over the years. They are personable, trustworthy, fast and efficient. I never worry about a thing when I know they are taking care of the sale and emptying out afterward. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs an estate sale. It's the smart thing to do, as many families are completely overwhelmed.
Bonnie Ellsworth (Associate Broker Windermere/Ballard)
I have hired Cathie Tomlinson as both an estate appraiser and to manage estate sales numerous times. Not only have I had excellent results, but the Judge in one case commented how thorough and well done the appraisal was.
Michael E. Keller (Attorney)
I was so impressed by Donnelly & Donnelly! They were quick and efficient and a pleasure to work with. I couldn't believe how fast they got my mother's house ready for the sale and how much sold. They did a great job cleaning out the house afterwards. My sister and I were incredibly relieved that we didn't have to empty ou the house ourselves. With D&D you will get friendly, reliable service and be glad that you called them. I definitely am. I strongly recommend Donnelly & Donnelly to anyone who would like to have an estate sale. Mom's house sold on the second day of being on the market. So we are completely done with the house. Thanks again for being so amazing!

We were so happy to find you to do our recent estate sale. We felt completely at ease turning over every detail to you. We could never have realized as much money as you got for us. You knew how to price everything properly. Thank you for great service.

As the executor of an estate, I researched companies that could appraise and conduct the sale of personal property. After interviews with several people, I selected Cathie and Murphy Tomlinson of Donnelly & Donnelly in Seattle, and I am glad that I did. They assisted me in various ways with the assets and the estate sale was a success. Cathie and Murphy were professional, knowledgeable and reliable, but also, more importantly to me, down-to-earth and friendly. It was a pleasure to work with them. I recommend their services to others handling estates or other personal property appraisals and issues.
