Pierson-Palmer Estate Sales (McDrew Sales Staff)

McDrew Sales  was, for many years, the Chicago area's premier high end estate sale company. Patricia Drew (1930-2016) stylishly and successfully conducted more than1000 sales over 43 years, earning a loyal and dedicated following, thanks to her impeccable integrity and knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining staff.

The "McDrew Crew" continues this established tradition and brings that same commitment to each Pierson-Palmer sale from the first meeting to the final clean out. We offer every client a personalized sale dedicated to providing an exacting valuation scrutiny. Antiques, art, fine furniture, furs, jewelry, collectibles, decorative household items and anything else offered for sale are all tastefully arranged and displayed to maximize customer appeal. We are subscribers to many valuation and auction sites and thus have access to 25+ years of recorded international auction results. Among the services offered:  internet advertising including photographs; carefully composed sale flyers if desired; reserved client list email notification;  research and expert appraisals; staging of sale items; a security guard at the door to check receipts; moving assistance and recommended movers; online auctions; AND a hand to hold through the sometimes difficult process of estate liquidation, downsizing or moving.

A full monetary accounting, with corresponding receipts, is presented to the client within one week of the conclusion of the sale. The host residence is always treated with the utmost respect and dignity and left in excellent order. We are also able to help coordinate any desired additional services...including total home cleaning and the arrangement for charitable donations if necessary. Our "Clear the House" specialist, Phil Douglas, is the best in the business! He is a separately contracted service and can be reached at: 708-439-6273.

The Pierson-Palmer Estate Sales team takes great pride in treating your prized possessions as we would our own. After all, we were all trained by the late Pat Drew herself...who brought a dignity and gentility we can only hope to continue. "Everything's the same but the name"!
