How it works


One of the questions we often hear from new clients is, “How do estate sales work?” It’s a good question! We like to say that they work really well when you have a good team to help you with all of the details!

At Memory Lane Estate Sales, owners Brandy and Joe Lalk, along with the rest of the Memory Lane team, will be with you every step of the way. Each and every member of our caring and professional staff takes personal pride in helping to ensure that you get the best value for your assets. We handle all of the details of the sale so that you can focus on the memories.

Our process begins with a free in-home consultation. From there, we identify all the items to be sold, do the market research to determine fair prices, conduct and market the sale, and clean up when the sale is over. Here’s how each step of the process goes:

In-Home Consultation

Our free in-home consultation will let you know what to expect and help to determine what the right options are for you.

Preparing & Managing the Estate Sale

Before the estate sale begins, we will determine fair values for your items, advertise, stage the sale, and manage all the details.

After the Estate Sale

After the sale, any leftover items will be packed up and removed for donation, and we’ll even sweep and vacuum the floors.

Check Mailed Directly to You

You’ll receive a follow-up phone call after the sale, and a check will be mailed within three days.

From beginning to end, you will have the full support of our conscientious and professional team to help you through this time of transition. There will be no out-of-pocket expenses for you, as our fee is based solely on commission from the items sold.

As a licensed, bonded, and insured member of the Estate Sales Liquidator Pros—a group of more than 1,100 estate liquidation companies—we’re proud to serve our clients across the Kansas City Metro Area and beyond.
