We had an excellent experience working with Linda, the President of
DUSTY OLD BAG, home estate sales.  Linda and Bill provided a
professional and stress free service to our family in helping our parents
sell the contents of their home.  Linda is knowledgeable and gives a
realistic, estimated assessment value on both furniture, housewares, and personal items. She is honest and reliable.  

We highly recommend Linda and her staff to come to your home and help you sell your treasured items.  Linda will provide a safe and secure estate or content sale setting for your home.

Sincerely,

The prospect of downsizing from our five bedroom home to an already furnished FL home was daunting and keeping me awake at night!
The entire process became streamlined once I contacted Lin and Bill. From our initial meeting, we were confident they would get the job done and I enjoyed a solid nights sleep for a change!
Lin and Bill are consummate professionals and bring with them a team of enthusiastic and friendly workers. My husband and I were amazed at how much of our stuff sold, our end profit, and the fact that it was accomplished while we spent the sales days enjoying each other's company visiting some favorite sights.


 We highly recommend The Dusty Old Bag without reservation.

A Dusty Old Bag estate sales came to me very highly recommended.

I felt at ease with Lin the first time we spoke.

She was honest and wanted to actually see the estate before agreeing to do our sale.

Lin and Bill did an amazing job and they are both very knowledgeable about pricing!!

Lin kept me involved with the preparation of the sale and the sale itself even though I lived out of state.

I would highly recommend them to anyone needing help with getting rid of an estate or downsizing.

They are simply the best and I wish they worked outside of New Jersey!

 Dear Lin, it was such a pleasure to work with you on my recent estate sale. You were wonderful, caring, and efficient. You took care of everything from start to finish and made my transition to my new home so much easier because of this. The results you realized on my behalf were far and above my highest expectations!  Thank you so much and I highly recommend anyone looking for a professional and caring person to handle the sale of their estate belongings to consider you FIRST!

It's been a day, now, since the completion of our house sale.  We moved from a larger house to a smaller apartment and knew we couldn't take everything with us.  I reviewed several 'house sale' experts and decided on a "Dusty Old Bag" after I spoke with Lin for the first time.  I was impressed by the fact that she wouldn't simply take our job over the phone, but rather wanted to do an onsite visit - to make sure the contents to be sold made sense --- in other words, she didn't want to take a job on, that might be too small to satisfy her or her customer. I really appreciated that!

Lin and Bill were consummate professionals - they showed up when they said they would; they did what they said they would and they were a a delight to work with!  Bill even spent an afternoon with me, as we sold our dining room set prior to the sale -- he wanted to be there when the buyers showed up and didn't leave until after the buyers had figures out how to get everything in the van they brought!

I would recommend Lin and Bill, without reservation, for anyone that needs an estate or house sale professional.  Honest, trustworthy and they definitely know their business!  And, I found their prices to be very reasonable, besides.

Thank you, Lin and Bill - it was a pleasure working with you.  We so appreciate all of your efforts on our behalf....and are delighted with the outcome of the sale!

We had a huge estate sale to conduct that more than one estate sale professional opted to not take. 
Lin was clear and concise about what she could do, how long she would need to prepare the house for the sale, and how her company operates. 
Throughout the entire process from signing the contract to the final sale, Lin is accessible and straightforward.  No miscommunications and always available to address any questions or concerns. 
She and her team worked very hard and did a great job. 
We were especially impressed with her marketing efforts which really seemed to pay dividends when the sale occurred. 
From beginning to end, I could not have asked for a more trustworthy, reliable and effective team.

I INTERVIEWED SEVERAL ESTATE SALE PROFESSIONALS BEFORE CHOOSING A DUSTY OLD BAG.

THERE WAS JUST SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT LIN THE DAY I MET HER. 

BILL SAID “JUST LET ME DO MY THING” WHILE HE SET UP THE ITEMS FOR SALE AND WHEN I SAW HOW HE STAGED THE HOUSE, I KNEW I HAD MADE THE RIGHT DECISION.

 THEY DELIVERED MORE THAN PROMISED AND KEPT ME IN THE LOOP AS THE SALE PROGRESSED WHEN THERE WERE BIDS OFFERED.

I HAVE ALREADY GIVEN THEIR CARDS OUT TO SEVERAL FRIENDS THAT ARE THINKING OF DOWNSIZING. 

IT WAS SUCH A PLEASURE MEETING AND WORKING WITH THEM. 

IT WAS BITTERSWEET SELLING MY HOME AFTER 34 YEARS,

BUT TIME TO GO AND THEY MADE THE PROCESS SO MUCH EASIER.

THANKS LIN AND BILL, I’LL KEEP IN TOUCH

"With humor, compassion, knowledge and hard work, Lin proved invaluable in ensuring all of our objectives were accomplished in quickly and efficiently selling, at reasonable prices, all of our home's contents before its sale.

My brother and I would like to express our gratitude to Lin and Bill
For helping us sell the contents of my dad's home.
My dad was a clutter keeper and there was a tremendous amount of work to be done.
From the initial visit with Lin I felt comfortable that her and her team would be able to handle the task of organizing and selling many of the items dad had saved for so many years.
There were countless hours spent preparing for the sale. When issues arose Lin handed them promptly and effectively.
Bill even fixed a step going down to the basement to insure that customers would be safe.
Lin advertised an extra day so my brother and I could man the sale to sell remaining items.
After doing this for one day I realized how difficult estate selling really is.
Lin and her team are worth every penny!
I highly recommend Dusty Old Bag to anyone planning an estate sale.

Clearing out my mothers home was a daunting prospect.
Finding Lynn was a godsend.
Our February sale went smoothly and professionally, and we were surprised at how many "smalls" sold.
We did not attend the sale, as Lynn advised that it could be too emotional, freeing us to enjoy our weekend.
At the end of the sale, she helped advise us of agencies that could come and remove the rest of the items.
We have found that Re-store of habitat for humanity, is willing pick up most of the remaining furniture.
It is wonderful to know my mother's items can still be useful.
Thank you, Lin, for taking on a burden that I dreaded and making it far less painful. Remember, I love to organize! Call if you are up in Sussex  county and need a hand!

'

As a client of Lin and Bill’s of Dusty Old Bag, I am writing this letter of recommendation on their behalf. I got their name from my realtor when I first put my home on the market. I was selling a two bedroom townhouse and moving to a furnished one bedroom apartment in New York City and couldn’t take anything with me. Understandably, as a single woman I was very anxious and concerned about how I would get rid of all of my furniture and belongings by myself.  Putting each item on Craig’s List was not an option.

After contacting Lin, we set up a time to meet.  The first time she came she looked over all my things and gave me a rough estimate of what she thought what my estate was worth. We went over the logistics of the sale:  living in a townhouse association and some potential problems that could arise because of that. I could see right from the beginning that she was very experienced and knew what she was talking about.

 On the second visit, Lin came with a camera and took pictures of the furniture, art and important items for her website. She even offered to sell my car if I wanted. During that visit a contract was signed so we both knew what each was to expect at the outcome of the sale, and Lin offered to bring in a reliable mover that she knew to clear out all the things that did not sell.

On the third visit, Lin and her husband Bill both came and they videotaped my entire home in order to better show my wares to her loyal web customers. At this time Lin put a price tag on everything and I asked her to price everything to sell as I knew I couldn’t take anything with me.  She told me not to throw anything out including food as some customers bought that as well.

I moved out two days before the tag sale  and, having met Lin and her husband three times already, I felt very confident that I was in good hands with Dusty Old Bag and that  they would take care of everything for me without me actually having to be present. Lin, her husband and team ran the sale for two days and I returned to a completely empty and cleaned out house and didn’t have to do anything but collect the money left over from the proceeds.

At every step of the way Lin and Bill were very professional and knowledgeable about pricing and running the sale. I never had any hesitation that they were honest and upright in their business dealings. They were always on time for each appointment and treated my home and belongings with respect. Moving is never a good time because it is filled with stress and doubts and fears of the unknown, but Lin and Bill made it a pleasurable experience

Lin and Bill of Dusty Old Bag bring experience, know-how, and real professionalism to their work, and they get the job done. They conducted a two-day moving sale in our home: some furniture, lots of housewares and decor items, clothing, some collectibles, and a selection of my one-of-a-kind mosaic art.  They set up the sale efficiently, priced the items to sell, and did an excellent job of marketing to their proprietary list of buyers and to the general public. Most importantly, they were dependable, easy to work with, and gave an honest and detailed accounting of the sales. I would definitely recommend Dusty Old Bag to anyone looking to downsize prior to a move.

Thanks again!

Dear Lin and Bill,
 
Thank you so much for all your help and amazing work in making our Estate sale a success. From the initial visit you explained the process and made us feel at ease that everything would be taken care of. When you showed up for the preparation day to price everything and get us organized we felt we weren’t ready for you and you assured us that you would have us in shape by the end of the day, and you did.
 
On the sale days we literally went to the beach and left everything in your hands without a worry in mind. You kept us informed and updated throughout the day and the process couldn’t have been any smoother.
 
You and your team really helped us get down to a manageable size as we are downsizing and had way too much stuff. We are able to pay for our move and a few additional services with the money made from the sale.
 
Robyn and I couldn’t be more happy. We also really appreciate Bill fixing a chair for us that wasn’t part of the sale and had a broken arm, above and beyond!!
 
Thanks again,
 
Eric and Robyn

WOW!! You exceeded my expectations by miles. The fact that the proceeds of the sale were more then double then what I believed we would

get was only the beginning of a good experience.

Our first meeting you came explained the process, no pressure and no tricks. You and your crew came back. Unpacked boxes and closets and

neatly displayed  and priced items for sale.

I felt comfortable and trusted you to handle the sale without myself or other family members there.

This meant we did not have to deal with the emotions of watching the sale of our parents possessions from the our family home.

Not only are you professionals in your field, you are Nice people to deal with.

Please feel free to use me as reference anytime.

Thank You

From the moment a friend gave me the number for "A Dusty Old Bag" to the last minute of our moving estate sale I could not have been any happier!!

Their committment to making the estate sale a success is undeniable! From tagging each and every item, then doing some research on certain items was awesome! They staged the three floors in a remarkable manner  keeping like items together. I felt like I was watching a magic show!

Their advertising really paid off!! People were lined up hours before the estate sale began. Lin and Bill and their hired help did a remarkable job in making our estate sale a success.

I would not hesitate to pass the word along about this dynamic duo!!!!

You made and overwhelming job seem easy. 
I had concerns along the way and with a few words you eased my anxiety.  
I thank you sincerely.  I feel that you have become a trusted, dear friend and I wouldn't hesitate to refer you to any of my relatives or friends.  
Thanks so much for seeing the project through and for all of your kindnesses.

Dear Lin, Bill and your team,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into conducting my sale.
Even though I was living over 1,000 miles away in another state, you made the process to sell the entire contents of my home I owned for 40+ years so simple.
I am amazed at how much time and effort goes into the marketing, organizing and de-cluttering.
Your patience and attention to detail was unwavering.
Taking the time to make sure "special" items were priced accordingly and going the extra mile to make the sale as successful as it was.
I have already started recommending you to all my friends.
You deserve all the kudos you receive.

Best regards,
Jeff

Estate Sale February 26-28 2015


My best friend needed to hire someone to help her clean out her basement and attic of 40+ years of extreme clutter and, alas, many memories.

I was over my friend's house when "A Dusty Old Bag" came over to meet with her and explain the process of an estate sale. We were greeted by the sweetest people
(Lin and Bill). They explained the whole process with such care and reassurance, all the while being down-to-earth and friendly.  The integrity, honesty,  and understanding of the emotional aspect of the situation could not have been better.

I was so impressed by what they were able to do in setting up, researching values for pricing and networking. They were consistently reassuring that everything was going to fine.

The workers were respectful of the property, making sure not to nick walls, doors and mouldings, or let straying buyer wander into areas off limits. They were honest, neat, and 100% true to their word and contract. They made a very emotionally trying and daunting clean up as efficient and non invasive of privacy as humanly possible. Phenomenal job well done!

I would recommend this company in a heart beat to anyone who has to have, it is even thinking about an estate sale.  You couldn't be in better hands than with Lin and Bill!
Great people who do a great job!

Dear Rose and Lin:
 
Thanks you for all of the hard work you did for my mother's estate sale. It is hard to lose your mother, especially when you were an only child, but you lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders by helping me properly relocate many of her things. Working with you both felt more like having family help me through this as you were always respectful of my mother's home and possessions and it was easy to feel both trusting and confident of your service. I highly recommend dusty old bags to anyone who needs help with dealing with an estate or has to sell their belongings due to moving. These ladies know their stuff and I'm sure you won't be disappointed....

Dear Rose and Lynn:
 
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
 
When my house was sold I took a deep breath, looked around and
then gave out a scream contemplating the thought of how I was
going to get rid of the clutter, antiques, and collections that my husband
and I accumulated over the 48 years  of living in the same house.
 
Downsizing is a very difficult task. The two of you abated my fears,
worked with me throughout the entire sale…and after as well.
If anyone would have told me that I would sell my house in October,
have It broom swept and clean and be in my new residence all set up
by the end of January, I would have told you to go and have your
head examined. But Yes, here we are relaxing and enjoying this new
phase of our lives.
 
Again, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
 
Best regards,
Judith and Herman too!

 


 
 

 

Star in the spotlight

 

Dear Rose and Lin:

I just wanted to thank both you and your team for your help in clearing out my parents' home.  Since it wasn't for estate purposes, my father had just relocated states away, it was the house my brother and I grew up in and had been our home for about 35 years...so everyone can imagine the contents! 

There was simply no way that my father or I would be able to handle the clean out on our own.  So, I started looking and found you on the internet. 

I found many companies, but after reading your testimonials I knew you were the ones to call!  Everything was handled quickly, efficiently and it was effortless for me, which was wonderful.  You got back to me right away on questions and kept me informed during the sale.   I didn't even have to be there! And then, when it was over, you had the name of someone who could clear out what was left.  

Thank you again for all of your help.  I would (and have) recommended you to others. 

Carolyn

Dear Rose and Lin


We would like to take a moment to extend our deepest gratitude to two dear and “Dusty Old Bags”…..thank you both for a successful and effortless estate sale.  Your sense of humor and kind attitude was a welcome respite during a bittersweet time for our family. All of the details of our sale flowed like clockwork because of your diligence and organization.  Small details, such as answering email questions or scheduling meetings at the home, were handled promptly and with courtesy.  The house looked beautiful when it was staged for the sale. Your honesty and expertise contributed greatly to the success of our sale; we always felt that we were in good hands throughout the process.
 
We wish you and yours many years of happiness and success. May you always have lots of interesting dusty old bags to sort through!
 
Respectfully,

Dear Lin, Rose, and Staff,

Your team took the anxiety out of clearing out our mom’s house.  We knew for us to have a garage sale on our own would be very emotional. We were so excited to find out about your company on the internet. Your team handled everything skillfully from advertising, set up, and even dealing with the difficult customer.  And what a relief it was- all we had to do was show up at the end of the sale and collect the money.  Your team is awesome.

Selling our home of 32 years and downsizing to a much smaller condo was a big job – but the part we
dreaded most from the beginning was getting rid of all the things we didn 't want to keep. We did not
have to worry! After choosing what we wanted to keep and letting our children go through everything,
we called the Dusty Old Bags – what a wonderful choice. From the first contact with Rose and Lin we
were impressed with their knowledge, professionalism, and customer service. They came to our home,
organized and priced the items, handled all the advertising (including contacting their many followers),
and had everything they needed for the day of the sale. We left early morning of the first sale day and
did not return until the afternoon of the second day. The amount they sold exceeded our expectations.
They then put us in touch with a service that took away all the remaining items and left the house
broom clean for the sale. What a relief!!!
To sum up – if you plan to sell your home and downsize, get a real estate agent who understands the
market, and attorney whose advice you trust, and CALL THE DUSTY OLD BAGS .

Hi Lin and Rose,

I wanted to thank you for handling the sale of the items in our family home.
From the first contact, you were responsive and helpful, and your
willingness to simply take over what otherwise would have been a very
heartbreaking task is greatly appreciated.  I truly enjoyed working with you
and you should take pride in yet another satisfied customer.

Lin & Rose -
Thank you for doing such a wonderful job selling the contents of our home in Colts Neck.
We were very impressed with the planning and hard work that went into staging the house,
pricing items, crowd control and more.
You took care of everything and allowed us to feel comfortable even after we moved out of
state by keeping us posted on your progress of getting the house ready for the sale.
Your many years of experience were clearly shown during the sale. Your patience (boy - you
have A LOT of patience), professionalism, and the way you kept everything organized and incontrol
was very impressive. When we drove by the first morning, and saw 50 cars outside by
8:30 am, with people running up the driveway to take a number for entry, we knew we were in
good hands. You sold almost EVERYTHING in 2 days - what a success!!
We can’t thank you enough and will proudly recommend your services to all who ask.
Thanks again!!!

Dear Lin, Rose and partners,
Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you..to our new best friends!   We can't thank-you enough for helping with the sale at my in-laws house.  You turned our "nightmare" into a pleasant and profitable experience.  
Your advice, professionalism, knowledge counsel, spirit, and hard work, made the sale days fun and stress free.      
We will highly recommend you to friends and family but will strongly encourage everyone to stop collecting and cleaning their houses now!  
It's amazing how much "stuff" we manage to accumulate over the years!    You're a winning team, and we're glad to have found you.  We'll be looking out for you future sales so we can stop by and say hi!
