What an amazing experience working with Fred. My father was an avid collector of all things antique, his house was museum of fine art and remnants of an antique store from the Orange Circle. No exaggeration, nearly 3000 items in only 2600 square feet. Much prep work was necessary to correctly present the different collections for sale. Fred and his team diligently researched and utilized his decades of experience, knowledge, and current trends to help find new homes for my dad’s many treasures. My family couldn’t be more pleased with his thoroughness and ultimate outcome. To say it was a pleasure to work with him, would be an understatement!

The 99 prior testimonials, all of which are glowing recommendations, can only be supported and enhanced by our experience with Fred and his wonderful team of hard-working individuals. Mom experienced the Great Depression of the 1930's and it imbued her with a profound desire to save everything. Which she did. EVERYTHING. When she passed away, there were boxes stacked from the joists to the rafters in the attic. There was a large separate room above the garage which contained pianos, organs, books, artwork, glassware and other trivia. The room was known as "The Chamber of Horrors". Fred helped us distribute and dispose of it all. His was a massive undertaking, which he and his team accomplished with aplomb and professionalism. They are also extraordinarily honest and transparent and conduct complete bookkeeping of such an adventure. Thank you Fred, we couldn't have done it without you. Ward G, Spyglass Hill, Newport Beach
"Death and taxes - the only sure things in life, it is said. With Death comes "dealing with stuff" - in my case a lovely home to be sold and the memorabilia from a full life, lots of travels, and excellent taste. But so much! I googled estate sales, read reviews, and interviewed ten estate sale agents. And then I chose to work with Fred Stegmann at Laguna Beach Estate Sales. He was highly recommended by others in the field and exhibited the most professional approach in each and every contact. He was supportive, knowledgeable, thorough, careful, methodical, scrupulous about accounting and practices. And he was very successful in managing the inventorying and sales process. He remained in close contact throughout the experience and had the accounting (and check) ready within 24 hours. If you are faced with the need to handle an estate sale, do yourself a favor and call Fred." Nancy T. Stamford, CT (Corona del Mar Mid Century Modern Estate.)
