“I understand the emotional attachment of parting with a beloved home and its contents and devote myself to achieving best value for clients’ prized possessions.”
Behind Elizabeth’s individual commitment and experience, is a knowledgeable and talented team that includes more than a dozen full and part-time employees, including a former Christie’s art historian and researcher, a museum curator, and a furniture and fine art restorer. From the beginning, Elizabeth’s goal is to listen and develop a plan that is customized to a client’s home, schedule, and special needs.
“On numerous occasions, our team’s ability to research, repair and creatively stage were the key factors in finding the right buyer.”
Elizabeth Jackson’s appraisals, on everything from Tiffany lamps to early Hudson River paintings, from a Corbusier table to an antique gold and diamond necklace, have achieved record prices. In many instances, items that have sold at Elizabeth Jackson Estate Sales outperformed estimates from major New York auction houses, and achieved sales which failed to sell at auction. In addition, unlike an auction house that will “cherry-pick” your pieces, an on-site estate sale allows you to safely sell everything from your prized possessions right down to the last napkin ring. Pieces displayed in the context of your own home always yield better prices than at auction when sold alone. Best of all, proceeds at in-home estate sales are tax free!
“A great sale has every price point, for every type of buyer. And, as my grandmother would say, it’s ‘found money’ for sellers.”
A walk through an Elizabeth Jackson estate sale is like stepping into the pages of a home décor magazine. Elizabeth’s sales are always meticulously curated and showcased in room vignettes that help customers envision how to pull together specific looks at home. As always, Elizabeth and her staff are on hand to answer questions, measure, discuss scale, fabric and color and provide suggestions on ways to mix new finds with a customer’s current pieces.
“I always like to give shoppers great takeaway ideas and show them ways to recreate the look in their own home. Often, they end up buying a whole room!”
In 2010 Elizabeth Jackson Estate Sales made tri-state history by achieving the largest estate sale gross at the home of a private Westchester collector of art and antiques. In 2012, her firm received extensive media coverage of the Connecticut estate sale for CBS “60 Minutes” commentator Andy Rooney. Rooney had an affection for Underwood Number 5 typewriters for many reasons, including they were made in the same year he was born.
“Andy Rooney’s typewriter which sold for ”several thousand” is one of two that he used. The other is at the Smithsonian.”
“Congratulations on a great job for us! You and your crew worked very hard and achieved excellent prices for our household goods and car. M.L. , Fairfield

An email with a 200-400 image photo gallery highlighting your home and its contents is sent to over 3,000 of Elizabeth’s private clients.

In addition, Elizabeth personally reaches out to her vast network of dealers, collectors, interior designers and special customers who she knows will be interested in client items.
At client’s request, unsold items will be evaluated for donation or moved to Elizabeth Jackson Consignment Store for continued sale opportunity. Clients may also contract with Elizabeth for post-sale clean-up.
