After the passing of a relative in January 2018 I was appointed personal representative for the estate. After spending much time sorting, cleaning and disposing of personal items I deemed there was way to much personal belongings to deal with. I contacted Brian at The Market Place to inquire about disposing of the remaining personal property. Brian set up an appointment, we met and he toured the house. After some discussion we reached an agreement for Brian and his team to go through everything, price everything, arrange everything and conduct a two day estate sale on the property. Brian and his team did a fantastic job, getting everything ready and conducting a two day sale which went very well, and we were very happy with the results. After the sale, Brian and his staff cleaned everything left out of the property and left the property broom clean ready to be sold. I cannot say enough about the job Market Place did and their professionalism, accommodating our requests and answering our questions. I would highly recommend The Market Place and Brian Stedl to anyone in need of any of the services he offers.

Brian and The Market Place were wonderful to deal with. My sister found them on the Internet so we knew nothing about them. We were trying to sell the contents of our parents "farmette" and had 5 buildings of 60 years of stuff to go through. We had already been cleaning out for the last 5 years, but the amount of stuff left was still overwhelming and when our daughter and husband got a sudden offer on their house and decided to buy Grandma and Grandpa's, we were really on a timeline (6 weeks). Brian came out and spent days preparing the place for the sale. We were nervous in today's world and not knowing anything about him, but in the end, thrilled and relieved to meet someone with so much integrity and decency. He also knows how to price and display things so that we ended up having an awesome sale and our daughter and hubby moved in exactly on time. We highly recommend The Market Place and would use again without looking anywhere else.
Thanks again for helping me out with the move! Especially on sho
"We wish to send you a thank you or all of your work and helpfulness at our Estate Sale. It is emotional selling a home you built and lived in for 46 years, plus the contents collected over that time frame, and you understand exactly our feelings. Your hard work and friendliness made it so easy! Now; if you were just here to find places for what we brought along to AZ, it sure would be helpful!!!
Thank you again for such a professional job."

"Thank you so much for all you and your crew did to make the estate sale go easy for me. Had I known how simple the arrangement would be for me, I would have engaged you much sooner. Your professionalism and compassionate approach were much appreciated. Many of those who came to the sale reported how friendly and helpful you were.
I also appreciated your prompt settlement of the financial details. The seminary and parish church will receive their bequests sooner than expected, and I will be able to close the estate and get back to normal sooner, as well."
"Brian and the Marketplace team gave us peace of mind at a time when we most needed it. I live in California and lead a very busy life with family and work. When our mother passed away, we were left with a large home full of over 90 years worth of valuables and junk. We were overwhelmed, to say the least. The fact that we were remote and busy with our lives made this situation much worse. We contacted the Marketplace to handle the estate sale, but there was so much more to worry about that we really did not know where to turn.
Then when Brian showed up and explained that they would handle "everything", we were just amazed! They were able to complete the estate sale, do some minor repairs and improvements to the house, ship some of the items to us, and then leave the home totally cleaned out and ready for the realtor to show! They even sold our mother's car for more than the dealer would give us!
Moreover, they did all of this without my sister or myself being present in Appleton at any time, other than the introductory meeting.
I can't express how appreciative and impressed we were with the Marketplace. They eliminated all of our stress during a very difficult time. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to do an estate sale or to handle an estate in any way."
