Recent Testimonials

I am a Realtor on Cape Cod and I want to commend Kerry and his staff for the outstanding job that they did at a property of mine this last week.  This Antique had a substantial amount of "collections" in the basement, and the final condition of the property was excellent.  Kerry and his crew cleaned everything out at the end of the estate sale and made the new buyers happy. For several years I have enlisted Stem to Stern for Estate Sales, but this was a challenge!  I would recommend them for Estate Sales! 

Thank you.

Dear Ann and Kerry

What an amazing group of people make up the staff of Stem to Stern!  On a scale of 1 to 10, you all are a 20+!

Each and every person who worked on our estate sale made such a difference.  Your professionalism was impressive.  Your knowledge of the value of our possessions, and the way you presented them was equally impressive.  We are grateful to each of you and your staff for all you did to make our estate sale so successful. 

Sincerely, Agnes + Patricia McHugh

"I appreciate the way you took care of things for me"

"Thank you again for such a good job with the sale.  We were so thoroughly impressed with the respect you all showed for the property...roping off or blocking parts of the yard, house and NFS items, mats on the floors, and all the "caution" signs on things we wouldn't have even thought of!!.  So grateful, D&D.

"We stumbled upon one of your sales by accident and have been hooked ever since!"

We bought an old Sea Captain's house on Cape Cod and wanted to furnish it in a way that was true to the character of the house. We stumbled upon one of your sales by accident and have been hooked ever since!

We have practically furnished the entire house at Stem to Stern Sales. A wonderful "green room" complete with green victorian style velvet couch, green rug and wonderful coffee table. Lamps and art work that are in keeping with an "antique House". We bought beds and side tables, oriental rugs. A beautiful Ethan Allen couch with matching rug. Fireplace screens, fenders, and sets to complement marble and carved fireplaces. All kinds of kitchen equipment, beautiful carved chairs and the list goes on.

Over the last year we feel we have made friends with Kerry, Tex, Ann, Sue, Barney and all the staff who have treated us with a welcome and a friendly smile whenever we turn up! Plenty of advice and a great price. Our house is practically furnished but we will keep coming because you never know the next treasure to be found at Stem to Stern.

The Captain's House that is furnished from Stem to Stern thanks to you!

"Saved us time and money, not to mention enormous stress"

Stem to Stern handled an estate sale at my mother's house back in March, and I cannot say enough good things about their services. My parents left behind an incredible amount of "stuff" that ranged from some beautiful antiques to simply sentimental junk. At first we balked at the idea of paying a percentage for someone else to do the sale, but we will never be sorry that we did! Stem to Stern came in and spent a week organizing everything in the place, bringing in lighting and shelving, pricing every item, and creating a shop-like atmosphere that buyers could not resist.

The best part of all was that after the sale was over, they came in and removed everything that was left, and cleaned the whole place. Two days later a check came in the mail. They were professional, friendly, and efficient, and I would recommend them highly.

The whole situation saved us time and money, not to mention enormous stress. We were able to put the house on the market the next day, and sold it in two weeks!

Thank you Stem to Stern!

"You do it better than all other competitors!"

Dear Kerry,

Now that the dust has settled (so to speak), I am finally able to look around at the beautiful, special island of Nantucket and say, "Yes- I made it!" and heave a grateful sigh of relief.

You and your staff played a major role in my being able to move on to a new and hopefully brighter chapter in my life.

Thank you to one and all (especially "the guys" who schlepped all my heavy stuff with great good humor and support.) I don't know how you do what you do, but you do it better than all other competitors! Thanks for the referral to Capeabilities - they're terrific!

See you on the Island!
