For anyone reading my review I invite you to read all the other testimonials available on Fred’s home page. Why? Because they all say what I am about to express. And I can attest to the outstanding service that is provided by Fred and his great group of assistants. After interviewing a number of potential Auctioneers and Estate Sale personnel to handle my deceased father’s enormous art collection I invited Fred into the process. Our first meeting culminated into contracting with Fred and he to take on this monumental task of cleaning, separating, displaying, analyzing, researching, photographing and pricing all the thousands of art pieces throughout the house.
With great finesse, care and organization he and his amazing group of assistants spent many hours over two weeks preparing for the eventual week long sale. The outcome was quite successful and I was extremely pleased.
Now, the one thing I want to communicate in my review is the character of Fred. He is definitely OCD—
Organized… Conscientious and Dependable….to name but three of his fine personality traits. Furthermore, he simply does what he says he will do without any hidden agendas or complicated contracts. He was responsive to my concerns and answered all my questions quickly and without hesitation. Yes…he has a high degree of empathy. Oh…did I mention friendly and with a wet and dry degree of humor? Lastly, a few days after the completion of the Estate Sale he personally presented me with a final itemized list of sold items along with a check in the manner in which he had communicated to me at the beginning. He does what he says he will do….period.
So, if you, the reader, is contemplating using an Estate Sale professional service do yourself a favor and employ Laguna Beach Estate Sales. If you are still contemplating and asking yourself WHY???? The answer is this…. Fred comes with the package…and all you need is him.

"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.
