“The SALE by GALE team was excellent. Setting up, pricing and clean-up exceeded expectations. Organizing a wide variety of material from china to furniture was magical. The team was experienced and knowledgeable in doing their assigned jobs. They were conscious of keeping the house usable during the sale and set-up (while I was still living in the house) was much appreciated. Good job, Gale.”  Paul Cooper

“Thank you for a great sale and for lifting a difficult and sad burden from the family.”     Dayne Heiner (Johnson estate)

“I just completed a “Sale by Gale” at my old home and want to tell you: They totally earned a 100% ***RAVE REVIEW***!! Talk about peace of mind! After our move, I was able to leave everything behind that I didn’t want and Gale’s team took over like a super well-oiled machine! They happily and efficiently went through everything, organized it in an attractive manner around the house, and put up clear signage for sale-goers. They also have **extensive** experience in terms of pricing. They marry their vast knowledge (after decades in this business) with research online, when necessary. In a number of cases, they got us more $$ than we ever could have guessed (or would have priced things at had we been doing this on our own!). A massive majority of our possessions sold and, what didn’t, THEY are handling: donating a large %; sending some to auction on our behalf; and trashing what little didn’t fall into either category. As I said: we are 100% THRILLED with our experience! Their commission is totally earned and extremely reasonable, in my opinion. ***Don’t waste your time and energy – use SALE BY GALE. They’re the B.E.S.T.”          Patty & Jess Bragg

“They performed in an outstanding manner – in all aspects of the sale and following actions.”      Louis C. Wagner Jr., Retired Gen, U.S. Army

“I want to thank you and your team again Gale for all of your help and professionalism in helping me clear out the Alexandria house during a very difficult transition. I really could not have done it without you all!”       Tammy Chincheck

“Very happy with sale, great management and execution of complex task. Especially Satisfied with “full service” of disposal and clean-up after sale.”                 Tom Hampton

“SALE by GALE, a talented team of knowledgeable, highly organized and caring people, is the absolute best go-to team if you are planning a big move or need to clean an estate/house prior to sale. They know exactly how to organize and professionally present items from little assorted knick-knacks, jewelry, tools, housewares, clothes, linens, furniture and holiday decorations – to valuable antiques, crystal, china and sports memorabilia. We could not imagine even attempting to do what Gale’s team did so smoothly and efficiently over the four days leading up to the weekend sale or managing the flow of people, sales and removal of items during the actual sale days. We highly recommend SALE by GALE if you need to clear a house/estate with the least amount of stress and effort on your own part. We also recommend taking advantage of the post-sale assistance Gale offers (auction and thrift store pick-up, movers/trash removal) to help clear any remaining items not sold.”      Dave and Kristy Grover

“The whole process was stress-free for me! Thank you.” W.E. Hall

“Having no idea how to go about doing this,I reached out to a friend who had most recently used SALE by GALE. Thanks goodness for Gale! Quick, thorough and very communicative. I’m grateful for all that she and her team did for us There was a lot to do and they did it! Two thumbs up!  Lauren Smith Ridgeway

“Very smooth & simple process on our end! Thank You!”                                                                                                           Darren Fox

“It was a very positive experience! Thank you for making entire process so much easier.”                                                      Terri Maloney

“Thank you – you all were wonderful.”                                                                                                                                       Gloria Carle

Gale Curcio is an extremely professional woman and is actually fun to have dealings with. She came to my house, checked things out, made great suggestions. Then she and her wonderful staff did EVERYTHING and did it well, from start to the ending. And finally she called the county for a special trash pick-up the day after the sale! She forgers NOTHING! I am a very happy camper!                                                                 Peggy Jeens

I was very pleased with the outcome of the sale in amount of items sold and price.”                                                                                                                                                                  Janet Smalley

“I was impressed with the way everything was set up for the sale. I appreciated how organized you all left everything.”        Nia Johnson

“I was so impressed with the entire process! The clean-up at the end exceeded my expectations. Between the auction company pick-up and the movers pick-up I did not have to deal with any anxiety as to unsold items. Everyone involved was kind, compassionate and helpful – thus making a very difficult situation the best it could be. Thank You!                                                                        Cathy Beckett

“I just want to say thank you so much for all your work … We are thrilled to be rid of all the items… It is really very liberating to have less “stuff”.
You were just terrific.. Organized, efficient, etc, .. I am telling everyone I see how well it went.”        Ann & Kip Brunk

It was a really professional easy going stress free experience. You showed respect for their things and understanding. Richard felt very comfortable with you and your staff. This made my job much easier. The sale produced the return I had hoped for . Thank You for all your help.  Jane Stapleton for the McGuire estate.

“Hiring Gale Curcio of Curcio Connections was one of the best decisions my family and I made when deciding to have an estate sale.  She was extremely easy to deal with and handled every aspect of the sale in a professional and caring manner.  She worked very hard and performed duties way beyond what was expected.  I recommended her to our realtor and several other people and cannot say enough about how happy we were with the outcome.  Thank you Gale!!!!!”                                                                                                                                              Karen Talak

“Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job with our relatively ancient furniture and other items. You may be sure that we’ll tell Ruth Guirard how great it has been to work with you, and the same for anyone else who might seek a reference.”                Dot and Alan Heil

“Gale Curcio was a great help to me before, during and after estate sale in 2014.Her expertise and coordinating all details made the sale very easy for me. Besides grouping items from all over the house, she did all the advertising , signs, pricing and secured helpers for the sale. Since I did not live in the area of the sale all these things helped make the sale go smoothly. After the sale, she helped find a liquidator to take leftover sale items. I strongly recommend Gale Curcio and Sale by Gale.”                                                                                                                    Betty Woodcock

“Thank YOU so much for all you have done!  The efficiency and professionalism by which you ran the estate sale of our mother’s possessions was outstanding!  It made an emotional and difficult situation for Kerry and I to be one that was very painless.”           Cheryll Velleck

Call Gale first! I wish I had…months ago.
As trustee/executor of a home bulging with collectables and useful items gathered over the decades, I sought out estate sale companies. The first assured me that most of it was junk, and that I could pay them to dispose of it. The second wanted nothing to do with it because it was “too labor-intensive.” The third wanted the job, but could not assure me that the estate would break even.
Then I found Gale Curcio who owns Sale by Gale. She carefully inspected the contents of the scores of boxes upon boxes that filled the house and sheds, and encouraged me by concluding that this was a “collective gold mine.”   What I struggled with for months, she and her crew turned chaos into absolute organized serenity within 3-4 days. The sale was a huge success! (I have had to resist the temptation to contact the other company reps to gloat about the thousands of dollars netted by the estate contents that they dismissed as “junk” or too difficult.) I am very thankful that I found Sale by Gale, and have been recommending her to everyone that I know who wants to sell their personal property.                                                Ken Cunningham
