How does it work?

The nitty-gritty details.

01 Contact Us

Every sale is unique, and in most cases we won’t know for sure we’re a perfect fit until we meet in person. However, because of our consistently high call volume, we’re trying to make sure we help everyone who submits via our form whether we’ll hold your sale or redirect you to someone fit for your individual needs.

Response times via our form are up from a few minutes to only a few hours.

Contact us online
Or call us at 913.787.6335.

02 Let’s chat

We’ll follow-up with you no matter what. If it seems like we’re a great match, we’ll need more information from you, like your time-frame, the types of items you’re selling, and photos if you have them available. This is also an opportunity to see how well we click. Our most successful sales are the ones where we and our clients are on the same page.

03 Free Consultation

If you feel you meet our minimum’s required, we’ll visit your home to do a walkthrough and see if we’re a match. If we are, we will change dates, answer questions, and schedule a time to complete our contract. If not, we are able to provide some alternate suggestions.

04 Preparing for Your Sale

You may need to do a little clean-up before we arrive to start your estate sale. Here are a few highlights from our full article (read here) which outlines everything we ask of our clients to do before we arrive.

  • Remove any box TV’s
  • Old desktop computer towers
  • Stained mattresses (this is a must)
  • Non-working appliances (refrigerators in basements)
  • Actual trash (filled garbage bags, empty boxes, etc.)
  • Personally identifiable paperwork, photos, and bills

05 “Prep Team” arrives

The size and amount of labor necessary to prep each sale determines how much time our teams will need to get your home ready for a Green Frog Estate Sale. We’ll discover every sellable item in the house while cleaning out drawers, nooks and crannies. Once the house is clean enough, we’ll start organizing displays, researching current market trends to price appropriately, and setting up technology.

Anything personal we find (including bills and recent family photographs) will be set aside for you to collect after the sale.  Plenty of lighting, a clean house, and our unmatched experience assures you’ll have the most beautiful sale when the time comes.

06 Marketing

Our customers love us, but we estimate around 30% of our customers are first-timers, meaning they’ve never been to an estate sale before. This is great news for two reasons:

  1. Our marketing is continuously driving new traffic to our sales, introducing new people to the estate sale industry.
  2. You don’t have to rely on only our best customers visiting your sale to make revenue.

07 The Estate Sale

Customer-service driven and highly recommended on Google, our estate sales have helped countless families downsize and thousands of shoppers score awesome deals. They’ve also earned us the title of #1 Estate Sale Company in Johnson County on Google. We don’t plan on lowering our standards anytime soon.

So what can you expect at Green Frog Estate Sales?

  1. Integrated tech (targeted advertising, electronic receipts)
  2. Secure payment processing (up to 3 registers running simultaneously)
  3. A comfortable, clean atmosphere (music, friendly staff, boutique shopping experience)
  4. Great customer service (bagging items, assistive personnel, one-on-one relationships)
  5. Branded presentation: from the welcome sign to the website.

08 Clean-Up & Cash Out

Your check and a tax deductible donation receipt will be mailed to you within 10 business days after the close of your sale. We’ll also clean up the house so it’s real-estate ready*, including:

  • Donating unsold items
  • Removing trash
  • Sweeping and vacuuming floors
  • Wiping surfaces
  • The dumpster is picked up

We’ll be out of your home by noon the first business day following the sale.

We’re here to help.

“They are great people, Do what they say. It was a great experience having their team do our sale. I have sold real estate over 40 years and I happily recommend them after my experience to anyone considering down sizing or liquidating. Keep on hopping GREEN FROG.”
