What Makes Tamara's Estate Sales Different?

It's respect.

You want to realize the greatest possible return from your sale, and we do our best to deliver that.  But we do so much more than that.

We know the event has meaning to you, and we treat you with respect.  We know that the property has meaning to you and your family, and we honor that throughout the entire sale process.  It's not something we take lightly.  It is the core of what we do.

We know that the people likely to purchase items demand and deserve respect too.  As part of that community, we show them the respect they deserve.  It's the way Tamara's Estate Sales has operated since 1992, and local buyers know it too.

We provide friendly and courteous staff to each event who are knowledgible about your merchandise.

Our customers are your customers.

We mail and email over a thousand customers about the sales, and were the first to use EstateSales.net to assist in promotion of our sales.   

Additionally, all sales are advertised on this website, as well as in the Pantagraph newspaper classified advertisements, as well as the employee news for COUNTRY.

During the sale, Tamara's Estate Sales signs are strategically placed to guide customers right to the doorstep.


We are steeped in the local antiques, collectibles, and auction businesses.  In the lead is Pam Newby, with 40+ years of experience buying and selling items just like yours.  She knows the true value of your property.

Pam has long been a buyer at local sales herself.  She knows how buyers like to be treated, what generates trust, and what makes them come back again and again.

Pam has recently completed the International Society of Appraisers Core Course and is a listed member of the International Society of Appraisers.   Pam successfully completed a 15-hour course and examination on the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the Congressionally-recognized set of appraisal standards promulgated by The Appraisal Foundation.   Please read our press release about the USPAP announcement by clicking here.
