Estate sale sellers – should you be at the sale?

costomer loyalty crosswordThe question as to whether an estate sale seller should be present at their sale has been the recent topic of discussion at many estate sales I have been to and also at the Estate Sales Conference 2013 hosted by Estatesales.net.

Many estate sale companies simply will not conduct a sale if the seller is present. When asked why the answer is because many times the emotional connection to the goods being sold can be overwhelming and kill the sales attempting to be made. Sellers on the other hand tend to feel that this is an indication that the company might be up to something or untrustworthy.
