Busy Beever Cares
We treat our clients like family
Former Clients Elaine and Pat Jones
Our First meeting with Elaine and Pat Jones, you could tell Elaine was overwhelmed with emotion and very worn physically and mentally. There was more to this story than what we could see. Yet we do have a job to do as to telling them what our company could offer so we made our pitch, it did not take long to realize that great client reviews and 100% client feedback over 6 years wasn’t the way to help our potential client or our company. Elaine needed a hug and to be assured that our company could handle their time frame and understanding respectfully that these folks had already been dealing with this situation of liquidating their parents’ home for 2 years. Estate sales are not always all about You Tubing items or amazing reviews or even a suit and tie. Sometimes they are about understanding and compassion. So our company got to work assessing the situation professionally and correctly while also dropping the sales pitch.

Today Elaine is still fighting her battle with Cancer and Winning this Fight. She even started painting again after giving it up for a while. Elaine is an accomplished painter. She calls herself a “basement” painter in all aspects still very accomplished. She won Grand Prize through a Pastel competition on Artistsnetwork.com.

Elaine’s story is so much more than an estate sale; she is so much more than just our client or just a face, she is our friend. It’s hard to let go of memoires and having strangers in and out of their child hood home.
We remember when we enter a potential clients home they may be fighting a battle which we are unaware of. It was a great pleasure in working with Elaine, Pat and Glen. Please take time to visit Elaine’s Website elainelierlyjones.com and her charity Cancer Action Inc.

Comments from Past Clients
Read what our past clients have said about us
I have been working with the team at Busy Beever the last couple weeks getting ready for the sale of a dear client while recently passed away. They have been amazing to work with! Incredibly sensitive of our situation, absolutely professional on every front, and brought in some of the best appraisers in the metro. I would recommend this crew all day long. Especially if you have antiques and specialty items. You won’t be disappointed to entrust them!Rich Gibbs
Busy Beever helped my parents with an estate sale when downsizing. I was really impressed with the results. They got so much stuff sold. They helped my Mom find a good home for her horse, which was really important to her. My Mom said they put her mind at ease during the difficult process of getting rid of a lifetime’s worth of memories. Thank you for making this go so smoothly!Sunny Foutes
Busy Beever did an awesome job in cleaning out our house and selling our furniture and misc. stuff. They did everything they said they were going to do and more. From start to finish (packing, moving, and holding the estate sale) all happened in 10 days and this was no small task. The house was 10,000 square feet that was full of furniture, etc. We did not have to do anything. I highly recommend them!Nancy
They worked very, very hard to make our sale a success. They were very nice to work with, professional, courteous, punctual, and flexible. They went above and beyond what other providers would have done to make sure our sale was a success, keeping in mind the feelings of the family. While other companies told us to just turn over the keys and come back when the sale was done, Busy Beever welcomed us to be as involved as we wanted to be and that meant a lot to us. There was so much stuff to sort through, we couldn’t look through everything before they began. They carefully put personal items aside for us to sort through later and when we found a few items for sale that meant a lot to the family, we were allowed to withdraw them from the sale. If we had gone with another company, I feel these items would have been gone forever as we were told we should not attend the sale. Their efforts were very much appreciated and I would definitely use their services again.Lee
I had my first experience with this company this week at a lovely sale. The people are very gracious and an employee spent quite a bit of her time helping find a book I really wanted. She helped me put them in a box and and as I was hauling other treasures upstairs she protected my lone box and let other customers know I was taking other things up stairs. I was very appreciative of that. Also when I checked out not only did they package the glass wear so it wouldn’t clank and break, the gentleman hauled my heavy box out to my vehicle. Customer service like this is very appreciated.. The gentleman had no idea I had recently had surgery and shouldn’t of been lifting the heavy box of books but was just providing me with excellent service. Not only that but he also let me know I forgot a bag inside. I will definitely look for their sales again, and kind sir thank you for carrying that box for me.. It goes both ways for a business like this, and I believe if you respect the rules of the sale they are more than happy to help. Thanks for a wonderful experience!!!Tiffany Turnbull Eagle
I would like to commend Busy Beever Estate Sales for helping my husband and me with our estate sale in July. In our preparations to build our retirement home out of state, we knew that now was the time to downsize our belongings. The team at Busy Beever did everything possible to make this as easy as possible. Thanks to Kevin and his sales team, we were able to sell most of our big ticket items and I was extremely impressed with his negotiation skills. It was well worth the effort and I would highly recommend this business to anyone in need of this type of service.Karen T
Came 1 week before sale and priced and cleaned the entire house.
We agreed on pricing of all our stuff because he brought his appraiser with them.
Had good help and they were there to help buyers move the things they bought.
All the people were clean and very friendly. They were never late.
We were able to see for ourselves the advertising that was done.
Sold a few things that I did not think would sell and did not sell a few things that I thought would sell.
Had a discount on the last day of the sale to really get rid of our stuff and it was worth it.
I agreed to a set % before the sale and he kept track of every sale. I wish it did not cost so much but in the end it was the right decision for us. They did work hard and it was worth it. I would use them again and I have already recommended them to others.Denis Jensen
I want to congratulate and thank you for a job VERY WELL DONE on behalf of my mother, Pauline. You performed above and beyond the call of duty and I appreciate it tremendously. She’s a sweet 91-year-old and hated to throw anything away, as you know. You have made her life less stressful and I want you to know how much it means to both of us.I will be happy and thrilled to recommend your services to all my friends and relatives living in metro KC. If you need a note of endorsement for a potential client, please don’t hesitate to call or write — it will be my pleasure to do so!Eli Fish
