About Estate Matters

We have turned years of experience, as derived from a large retail operation started in 1988, into helping individuals transition from partial to complete divestment of household items. We do this through estate and downsizing sales as well as clean-outs.  We also offer consignment options. The estate team draws upon a number of knowledgeable people from various specialties to ensure that market prices are reliable and accurate.

For the first few years, our business focus was on bringing containers of furniture in from England to a warehouse operation with a wholesale approach. In 1990 the company moved to a large retail operation on Bank Street, one of Ottawa’s main streets.

During this period, china, crystal, silver, decorative arts and collectibles were added to the furniture mix. Also, we started expanding our services to include retail appraisals, internet sales, consignments and house sales.

The store attracted a good clientele  looking for quality furnishings at a reasonable price. In addition to expanding our knowledge of the local market, we were able to explore our interests in art glass, the art deco and nouveau periods as well as Victorian furniture.  The store closed in 2004.
