An Encore Estate Sale always draws a crowd. This was the scene at the opening of a recent Estate Sale in Palm Harbor where an estimated 350 buyers filled the sidewalk all the way down the block.

Estate Services

Liquidating an estate? Downsizing? Relocating?

No matter what you need in estate services,

Encore Events is behind you all the way.

Facing a life transition is often stressful … whether it’s relocating, moving to a smaller home or assisted living facility, or liquidating the contents of a loved one’s estate. Imagine being able to just pack your bags and move on without having to deal with any of the endless details these life transitions produce.

At Encore Events, we offer all the services you need to make these changes smoothly. We provide friendly, professional and detail-oriented assistance. No matter how much or how little you need us to do, you can be assured it will be done with integrity and professionalism.


Estate Liquidation Services

Encore Events offers a complete package of Estate Services, the most popular being our Estate Liquidation Sales.  An Estate Sale is conducted on-site, usually runs for 2-3 days, is heavily advertised to the general public, is thoughtfully staged and results in an empty and cleaned-out property when the sale is finished. Because we’ve been conducting sales in the Pinellas County area since 1991, we have fine-tuned the art of liquidating estates. There’s nothing we haven’t seen or haven’t done when it comes to estate sales!


What makes an Estate Sale successful?

· Knowing value. Key to a successful (profitable) sale is knowing the value of the contents to be sold. As a certified appraiser, William Murphy has the knowledge and experience necessary  to properly price estate contents, whether it’s the jewelry or the junk.

· Staging makes a big difference. Before a sale happens, many hours of behind-the-scenes work is done at a property to showcase the contents. Glassware is washed, trash is removed, and furniture rearranged to make everything offered for sale as appealing as can be.

· Getting the word out! We use every available resource to advertise our Estate Sales, including daily and weekly publications and the Internet, where we have a substantial email following. We feature every sale on this website, complete with photos, directions and tantalizing details.


Is an Encore Estate Sale right for you?

It never hurts to ask. We have answers to whatever questions  you may have. Plus, we have a wide network of trusted professionals we can refer you to for other aspects of your estate liquidating challenge. If you need to empty a property easily, effortlessly and profitably, an Encore Estate Sale is absolutely right for you.

Scene from an April 2011 sale in Clearwater. This spacious 5-bedroom home was hardly big enough to accommodate all the shoppers who turned out for this sale.

In Others’ Words

Hi Bill:

How are you this Halloween afternoon? I just wanted to thank you for taking care of this (sale) in such a quick manner. The realtor was shocked and amazed at the beautiful and clean condition of the property. He was really impressed with the clean out your “crew” did and I wanted you to know that.

DEFINITELY let me know when you have another great estate sale. 

I so much enjoyed your professional team. I bought several things on Friday, including the set of five orange cooking pots.

It was a super fun sale. Thank you for helping me have something for Mother's Day.

Until the next sale.

Please add me to your email mailing list. Went to our first estate sale this week and loved it! You do a wonderful job, can't wait to hear about the next.
Thank you, Sherri T.


Hey Bill -

Thank you so much for all of your help at the Riverside Drive event. You and your staff were great.  Please add me to your mailing list for future sales.

See you next time,
Lanie S

Packed to the rafters! This is how the Encore Events van looks when we’re heading out to stage a sale. We make several trips like this loaded up with tables, bins and marking materials.

The estate sale at the mansion on the “estate” in Dunedin in October 2012 drew a huge crowd. It was a 3-day Fun Fest!

Additional estate services

Sorting / Packing

We can assist you in organizing your possessions and help make decisions as to what to keep, what to leave behind. We’ll climb into attics, get to the back of closets and dig into garage storages. We can arrange for packing and even coordinate the entire move if you desire. You can leave the dirty and heavy work to us.



When it comes to sell your home, less is more. A minimally-furnished space looks bigger, making your home more marketable. We can help stage your home for best possible presentation, using the pieces you already have. Our network of professionals includes real estate brokers, lawyers, movers, cleaners, painters and handymen who come highly recommended.


Other Sanity-saving Services

We can handle as few or as many of your needs as you require. You can depend on Encore Events to pay attention to all the details … everything from real estate services, to helping you pack/unpack, we’ll even wait for the cable man … the list is limited only by your needs. We do these services every day, giving you the benefit of our vast experience and spotless reputation. We also have an extensive network of professionals who we are happy to recommend for related estate / relocation services.
