About Us

Who We Are

As a business owner since 1983, my business experience includes conducting estate sales in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I possess extensive knowledge of antiques, collectibles, primitives, and equally important reproductions. I retired back to San Antonio where I was born and raised. I do not own or manage a shop.
I do not buy the remaining items. At the end of the sale, everything is donated to either our recommended charities or one of your choice. All my staff is knowledgeable in antiques, and sales and fluent in Spanish. 

Pricing

Our charge is straight up.

 40 % commission of the total sales. This covers most areas. We take all sizes with no minimum and will travel out of San Antonio.

  • Cleaning, sorting and pricing individual items, and preparing the home.
  • Advertising the sale.
  • Staffing of the sals
  • Conducting it from start to finish.

We do everything from start to finish!

Why Us?

I will utilize my 35 years of experience and knowledge to provide every opportunity that you get the most money. After all, I’m old school and had to learn everything about antiques from books, not the internet. Which would you hire someone with knowledge or someone just starting out? I do not “bring in” additional items, I do not own a shop nor will I buy you out:  The remaining items are donated to the charity of your choice. For a fee, I will conduct appraisals. Security is provided and we utilize recording surveillance cameras or when necessary a security guard. We work with many realtors and Probate attorneys all over the city.

Testimonials

Mr. Stephens organized and enacted an estate sale for us in Northeast San Antonio. We were selling a property for my brother who need to sell his home and all of his belongings. The advertising and sale were outstanding! They priced all the belongings, held a 3 day sale, and then donated items that did not sell. We highly recommend Mr. Stephens and his company.

Trash To Treasure was able to provide a solution to a difficult problem for me. They took on the problem, found a solution, and conducted the sale relieving me of a great deal of stress and anguish. It's emotional getting rid of years of history, but you made it bearable and added humor to a tough situation.

Thank you for all your efforts preparing and conductin the sale of parents' household goods. I was amazed at how quickly everything came together. My parents lived in their home for over 50 years, and the amount of items to be sold was more than I could deal with by myself. Thank you for saving the day.

It was such a relief and a blessing that you provided in your professional, sensitive and friendly manner. You got it done so easily, and we had nothing to do expect move our things to our new place and deposit the check. Thank you for your excellent guidance and your reporting.

I recently hired this company to do an estate sale and was surprised how easy that made it seem. Mark, the owner, and his team came in and organized, priced, and set the house up to look like a thrift shop in just a few days. I was a little nervous at first but was rest assured to just relax. The sale was a success and i was happy with the results. They cleaned up afterwards and shortly later i got my money. All in all a good company that i would recommend.
