"Fredrick Stegmann and his team at Laguna Beach Estate Sales is one of the best businesses, perhaps the best business I’ve had the pleasure of working with, in Orange County or really anywhere.
My brother, sister-in-law and I were completely overwhelmed by the enormity of our aunt’s estate and her belongings. There were rare treasures and family heirlooms buried amongst mounds of other things. So many things...
Fred and his team were able to quickly yet carefully sort through an extremely large amount of belongs and found many items that we didn’t know existed. My favorite were antique hair combs, some rare coins, and family photos we didn’t know existed.
From beginning to end we were completely taken care of by the nicest and classiest group of individuals. And more importantly, our Aunt’s possessions were treated with care, respect and dignity from beginning to end. I feel she would have been very pleased and relieved to know that her belongings, symbolizing her life, were well cared for. And she would have really adored Fredrick Stegmann and his team, as I do.

Upon our first introduction, I had a good feeling and felt an immediate connection with Fred Stegmann of Laguna Beach Estate Sales. He seemed honest, direct and knowledgeable and had great communication skills.
We needed someone to handle the estate sale for our father. It was not an easy task, because our father lived in a gated community with a very strict HOA that did not allow open estate sales (where people can just walk in from the street). Rather, Fred had to cooperate with the strict HOA guidelines and coordinate the arrival of his prospective buyers to ensure only a limited amount would show up at a given time. Considering my father had a large home with a massive amount of items, this required a lot of strategic effort on Fred's part, which he handled very well. Fred has a lot of energy and was very disciplined in his approach to all aspects of the sale. His proficient communication skills were also extremely helpful when it came to discussing the estate sale items with the potential buyers.
Fred and his workers did an outstanding job of setting up the estate sale. Their display was very attractive and made it easy to view all the items. They were very organized in the way they grouped all the items, and did a great job at tagging all items with price tags.
Fred has a collection of dedicated high-end buyers who follow his sales and are always looking for new purchases. Fred worked diligently communicating with these buyers in his efforts to bring them into the sale, which proved to be very beneficial for us!
When it comes to valuables such as paintings, statues, etc., Fred has connections with professional individuals with specialized knowledge who can assist in determining the value of those items. Once the value is determined, Fred discloses all the information he has collected to his customer, allowing the customer to make an informed decision as to how to handle these valuable items.
I am thoroughly happy we chose Fred Stegmann of Laguna Beach Estate Sales to help us through this difficult process. In the midst of all the chaos, Fred was a calming figure for us and held our hands throughout the entire process. Fred is an outstanding guy and was such a pleasure to work with, that I felt sad when he handed us our check and we said our goodbyes.
