Where estate liquidation
is an art form
Brackneys Estate Sales has always been a family run business
Long before Brackneys Estate Sales, Bob Brackney was a buyer and a seller. He planned his days around ads in the newspaper for yard, garage, moving or estate sales. A very hard worker, he had an eye for what would sell. We graduated into estate sales after we married in 1985. Until 2007 we owned and operated RGB Liquidators, subsequently selling that business to move out of state. Our daughter married and was staying in California, so we decided to stay put. A year later, in 2008, we started Extraordinary Estate Services.
After working with an REO company
we expanded our services
For convenience we offered vehicle liquidation, fair market value appraisals, hoarder cleanout, cleaning and buyout services. We kept busy holding 2-4 sales a month. We had multiple streams of people needing sales; families, attorneys, fiduciaries, realtors. It wasn’t always an estate sale. We were a service company and the needs of the people mentioned above used us for their clients needs.
He started small and he learned quickly
His sales skills started early in life. As a result, he has been a student of this industry ever since. Estate liquidation is second nature to him, like a well oiled machine. After recently relocating from the San Diego area to Glendale, AZ, we are now offering services to the greater Phoenix area. Read more about Bobby on Our Story page.
Estate sales, asset liquidation, what’s that?
Before marrying Bobby, the phrase “estate sales” was not in my vocabulary. Nor was liquidation. I thought liquidation was a drinking party. I had never been to a garage sale, estate sale or bought anything second hand. I had to come back to California from Houston in early 1985 to help out relatives. They needed a liquidation of assets. I had no clue. I was not knowledgable in resale value, therefore, I was taken advantage of.
Indeed, in nine months, life schooled me in this process.
My uncle suffering mild Alzheimers would leave the house and tell his wife “I’m going home”. To add to that, his wife was in a wheelchair. They had no children so the social worker from California told us, we needed to go. That was the spring of personal growth for me. Consequently, that is how I met my husband, Bobby. A guy who was well versed in the art of buying and selling. Most important, he was and is an honest and honorable man.
Asset liquidation services and how they look
Our goal is to make a sale look as attractive as possible. When you shop at any department store, items are not thrown on tables for you to rummage thru. They are placed orderly, pleasing to the eye. And that is what Brackneys Estate Sales works hard to achieve. We are excited to offer an extraordinary asset liquidation service in the Phoenix area.

Our job is to create income
Our main focus offering estate sales and asset liquidation services is to move products from one home to another, putting money in your pocket. The benefit of that is by selling personal inventory, it helps cover various liquidation costs.
First, box, remove and secure what the family intends on keeping.
Second, our advice, don’t throw anything away
Let us, or a potential buyer, decide what is salable and what is trash. Trust me, we know what people are willing to pay us to haul your items from your home to theirs. For instance, some of the nicer items in your home are still there, while things you thought worthless are sold.
As an illustration
A nice set of china still might be sitting there on the table at the end of the sale, yet your stack of old used towels were sold to use for dog or car washing. Old paper; brochures, catalogs, menu’s, travel info, old deeds, black and white photos (if the family does not keep) all have potential of selling. Therefore, we let the buyer establish the need.
And Third, don’t worry.
We have spend almost half of our lives liquidating. We know what to do and our job is to remove stress from the family.
