Thank you so much for your unbelievable service, efficiency and care.  You are ANGELS WITHOUT WINGS! 

My mom lives in Decatur and she was moving into assisted living.  Everything happened so quickly!   My sister and I live out of town and we were in town to help with the move.  Teresa and Pat met us promptly on July 26th.  They came in and organized everything and marked everything that week and the following week.  The sale was held on Saturday and Sunday, August 9th and 10th!  Huge success! 

They removed everthing that was not sold on Monday.  They itemized everything and donated all items to charity!  They vacuumed the house and wiped out the cabinets.  On Wednesday, a check was presented to my mom.  You are truly ANGELS WITHOUT WINGS!  Your entire family is wonderful!  We are so grateful!!  THANK YOU!  You provide a wonderful service and we recommend you!!

In late April 2014, we made a decision to relocate south to escape the Midwest winters and move closer to family. We used Tamara's to organize our moving sale on Mother's Day weekend May 9 - 10, 2014.

For our sale, Tamara's delivered on all advertised elements, without exception.

Pam Newby provided strong leadership, compassion, and an appropriate sense of humor in handling all areas of our moving sale. Pam listened, valued our input and gave us many great recommendations based on her experiences.

Pam's team coordinated every detail imaginable: bringing in tables, rearranging individual rooms for optimal traffic flow, showcasing our treasures, pricing all individual items, advertising on multiple sites, conducting the sale itself, ensuring large items were promptly and safely removed from the house, superb post sale clean up and no doubt much more.

The moving sale was a huge success from our viewpoint. We are big fans of Pam and John Newby and can wholeheartedly recommend Tamara's.

Great job Pam and John.

We needed to scale down before our move to Nevada and Pam was a complete professional to work with.  We had no idea how an estate sale worked and she was always available to answer any questions that arose.  We were extremely pleased with her thoroughness, professionalism and bottom line results.  We would highly recommend Tamara's Estate Sales to anyone who needs this service.



We were very pleased with the results of the sale. The net proceeds were more than we expected. You & your crew did a super job. Glad to hear that the husband of the couple that bought home was pleased with clean-up of the house. It had to have been a job to get it presentable considering that we really had no time to clean before leaving. You made us feel very comfortable leading up to the sale-that meant a lot.

Thanks for a job well done.

John & Pat

Dear Pam,

We would like to express our appreciation and satisfaction with all the great hard work you and your team did in completing the estate sale for my my Father, James Mack.  The entire process was well organized and ran smoothly. You helped take a tremendous amount of pressure off of us and got things done much faster than we could have ever accomplished.  Your team were all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. 

I don't know the sales total yet but I do know every penny spent was done so wisely and was well worth the money. 

Thank you again for a job well done.

Dear Pam,

Lora and I wish to again thank you for the gracious, efficient and very helpful way in which you took care of the sale for us and for clearing out our house.  The sale brought in much more than we anticipated.  Your able assistance was such a huge lift for us and we deeply appreciate your services.  We are so fortunate to have been able to make contact with you.  We wish to express our deepest gratitude to you for a big job well-done!

We were amazed to find so many people busily at work on Saturday afternoon clearing out our house.  And the way in which you cleaned up the house after all items had been removed was greatly appreciated, too.  Thanks and thanks again!

Best Wishes to you!

Most sincerely and gratefully,

Lora and Russ Oyer

Pam & John, Thank you for all your hard work and the fantastic outcome. It was a pleasure working with you.

I want to enthusiastically recommend Pam Newby of Tamara Estate Sales.  She conducted a highly successful estate sale for my family. 

First, she was very supportive of family members as we chose items for ourselves that would not be part of the sale.  Even though their loss would impact her profit, she always encouraged us to take as many things as we wanted.  She then worked very hard to maximize the rest.  She made sure things were sorted, clean and displayed to their best advantage.  Her advertising was excellent, drawing buyers from a wide geographic area.  Her expertise in pricing insured that most objects sold for their value.  Her team made sure that the sale days went smoothly by organizing neighborhood parking and admission to the house.  It was a large sale, requiring many hours of work, and throughout it was a pleasure working with Pam and her team. 

Finally, and most importantly, the sales figures passed my expectations.
She has my gratitude for a job well done.

I would like to thank you for an extremely professional and yet personal sale of my aunt's estate.

You treated everything and everyone with respect, love and care. The way you handled your business and yet was straight forward and honest in your treatment of her estate and her belongings was outstanding.

I would highly recommend you to one a nd all because you not only conduct a sale but you do it with class and love. Thanks so much for all of your work and all of your efforts. My family really appreciates you and your team.

Sincerely yours,

Thomas Jacquat
