Our Services

Hiddenworth Group specializes in estate liquidation services for individuals, real estate agents, banks, attorneys, executors/executrixes of estates, university development offices and seniors who are downsizing to retirement communities or assisted living facilities.

  • An entire liquidation of a personal estate or business can be professionally conducted by Hiddenworth Group's highly trained staff.
  • Fully insured and bonded, our sales staff will set up, display, and price your items so that you, the client, will receive the fairest return possible on your items. 
  • Every sale is aggressively advertised and marketed locally, regionally, and in some instances, nationwide. 
  • We have extensive contacts at major auction houses (Sotheby's, Douglas, Dargate, Christies, etc.) to ensure that items which are considered gallery or museum quality will reach their highest sales potential.

There are instances where our clients have a handful of items, such as cars, furniture, collectibles, that they would like to sell, but do not have enough for a stand-alone estate sale or there are restrictions based off of where they live.  We will often combine several estates, depending on the nature of the items and the type of sale that we are conducting.  In certain circumstances, we can move the entire contents of the estate to an off-site location.  We work with the client to determine the best course of action with regard to the estate.

  1. Fill out our intake form or contact us directly about your items.
  2. Determine the best method of selling your items. Our knowledge & experience help guide the decision making process between ourselves and the client. 
  3. Determine our commission based on the quality of the items, the time involved, and the sale venue. 
  4. Final Payment. The client will receive a check within 10 days of sale closing.

Discover your Worth!

This bowl looks like something you would put your fruit in. For $3.00 at a tag sale, the buyer sold it at Sotheby's in New York for $2.2 million.  

This bowl is a 1,000 year old "Ding" bowl from China's Northern Song Dynasty. Only one other bowl of the same form, size and almost identical decoration is known. 

Make sure you are NOT giving away your fortune!
