Barry, I wanted to let you know my father, Max M., passed on Monday [April 9th, 2018]... Thanks for your support and genuine concern. Your efforts to liquidate dad and his wife's estate was amazing and comforting to dad that all was prepared before his passing. Hope you have been well and we may see you at an upcoming sale.

Barry arranged an Estate Sale for me in record time. Within one week he had itemized everything in my house, garage, and shed, and scheduled a weekend sale. It was nothing short of miraculous that he was able to organize, promote, sell and cleanup in such a short time frame. By doing so, he relieved me of the pressure to empty my house of all furniture in just one week while I was living across the country. His attention to detail was impressive and reassuring – it was as if he had lived among my things for 20 years! Whenever I checked in about an item, somehow he knew what I was talking about. There are about a zillion invisible details that go into coordinating a successful Estate Sale – pricing, tagging, cleaning, artfully displaying, taking photos and writing copy in order to advertise, and so much more, and Barry was on top of all of them. He was so trustworthy and conscientious, I want everyone to know about B-Keen. And, last but not least, when he says, “The check is in the mail!” it is. I received the much needed proceeds from the sale just 5 days after it was completed. Amazing! Thank you so much, Barry and Ping, husband/wife team extraordinaire, for taking care of this major project. You made a stressful time much easier for me!
Amy Torres [NAPLES ~ "Moving-Out" ~ ESTATE SALE]
Barry and his team are fantastic! My sisters and I live in MI, and our father, in FL.
Totally caught off guard, we went with a recommendation from our realtor (a friend
of a friend ) for Barry and Josh. We met with them, gave them carte blance with
the house, and had to fly home. We left them a disaster area. They took care of
EVERYTHING for us, went above and beyond. Barry made an awful situation for us
bearable, and we are grateful. He was very professional, the communication was
constant, and all of the financial aspects were upfront and not hidden.
Sarah M. [Lehigh Acres - Estate Sale]
Although a little late, I'd like to thank you for an outstanding job
of liquidating the Bogaert estate. As I looked at the task all I
could think was "overwhelming" and all you could say was "let's get started".
It was surely a "Herculean" undertaking. Three weeks of preparing and
3 days of selling. Based on the turnout, your advertising is both timely
In short, you said what you could do and you did what you said.
I would strongly recommend your services to anyone in need.
Thanks for a great job!
Bill O. [Port Charlotte - Mega - Estate Sale]
We wish to thank you and your B-Keen organization for the marvelous job you performed
in the Estate Sale following our move from our home in North Port. Down sizing from a large
house to a small apartment, with 62 years of "Stuff" to get rid of, your knowledge of pricing
and advertising, as well as your professional handling of the sale only made our move more
enjoyable. I will never forget driving past the house the first day of the sale and seeing cars
parked bumper to bumper for two blocks both ways from our driveway. We would be most
happy to recommend you to anyone wishing to make a move.
Most sincerely.........Bob & Jane L., Bradenton, FL [North Port - Waterfront Estate Sale]
Barry and his crew did outstanding job.
Would use them again if the occasion arises.
Highly recommend their services to those in need of assistance.
Ron O., Lewisville
I inquired about having Barry do an estate sale for me, and he soon came out
to look at what I had. After a very careful and thorough look, he determined
that I did not have enough for sale to make it worth his while. He was so pleasant
to work with that I asked whether he might put reasonable prices on my things
so that I could have my own moving sale. Barry spent a whole day carefully
doing just that. He is so knowledgeable and easy to work with that I would highly
recommend him to anyone, whether for appraisals or for an actual sale.
Kathy P., Fort Worth
We recently contracted with Barry to conduct an estate sale.We were
downsizing and had a contract for the sale of our home. The time frame to
make things work was very short. Barry and his team worked tirelessly to
make sure it happened. Almost all items were sold!!! We
were extremely satisfied with both the quality of the price assessments and
the final sale prices. It was a complete success!!!
We were extremely impressed with the professionalism exhibited by Barry
during all stages of the process.
Bob A. - Keller, TX
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the recent Estate Sale you conducted here.
You put a lot of work into organizing, pricing, and setting things up before the sale.
Your crew was very experienced, polite and professional. I’d estimate that over 500 people
were here to buy those 3 days – what a crowd! Thanks for doing all the work, I didn’t have
much to do. You were very cooperative about me keeping some things I didn’t want to sell.
When the sale was over, net sales exceeded $7,000 for the 3 days. The sale was so
successful, that what was left over wouldn’t even fill a show box. JOB WELL DONE!
I would highly recommend your services to anyone wanting to have an estate sale.
Lavon D. - South Dallas
Message: Barry is wonderful! He did an Estate Sale for me this past February and for my Fiance this past August. Barry and his "Team" are organized, thorough, trustworthy and simply amazing! I had never experienced anything like this and after such a successful experience, I would recommend Barry highly. The work they put into each and every Estate sale is phenomenal. What looks impossible to pull off is made "easy" by Barry. He is so professional and makes you feel at ease. Thanks Barry! I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know who needs this kind of service. God Bless! Fran McK. - Plano
Barry, I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful job that you, your team, and your daughters did for my family. We brought in more than expected; everyone was wonderful to deal with and you saw things through to the end in regards to getting the property cleared out. The final payment was settled quickly and I am proud to be able to recommend a great Estate Salesperson at every opportunity!
JD Sherer - Dallas
Hi Barry, It is now more than a month since you conducted an estate sale
for me. I have relocated to my new home in Idaho and have begun searching
for smaller furnishings more appropriate to my new location. Between
CraigsList, yard sales, and flea markets, I've seen a lot of used
merchandise and talked to a lot of sellers. It has brought home to me how
lucky I was to find B-Keen Estate Sales to liquidate the many items I
didn't want to keep. You got top dollar for my things, and all I had to do
was make my home available and get out of the way. If I'd tried to sell
my things myself, I couldn't possibly have brought in the number and
quality of buyers that you did with your website and other tried-and-true
advertising. Plus, I wouldn't have priced things anywhere near as high as
you did--and you got your price on a high percentage of items. You did a
great job, and I truly appreciate it.
All the best,
Hanna G. - North Dallas
B-Keen Company did an excellent job of preparing and liquidating an estate in a well organized and timely manner. I was very impressed with the staging and photos that were placed on the website. We had the house sold very quickly, so we needed everything out as fast as possible. B-Keen sold most everything in a three day period. They donated the very few things that were not sold to a charity organization, so the contents would all be out of the house. The house was ready for a quick closing with very little effort on my part. I recommend the work of B-Keen with no reservations.

Message: Barry and Lisa, We just wanted to express our appreciation for the professional and friendly manner you handled the estate sale for Phil and I. Your work was much more than we could have done ourselves. Thank you again. I have recommended you to a number of friends and acquaintances. many blessings, Phil and Linda
Message: Barry and Lisa,
You are the best! My family and I were facing what seemed like an insurmountable job. We didn't even know where to begin. You took the job in hand, treated our situation with great respect and professionalism, and completed this huge job in 7 days! Your incredible knowledge of antiques and current prices for used items helped us get the most out of our estate sale.
Thank you!! You helped us get through a very tough emotional process.
Cindy and family of Murphy Texas
Barry & Lisa did an excellent job preparing and executing our estate sale.
They spent a lot of time and did excellent prep work for the sale. They conducted
themselves with extreme professionalism. We were totally satisfied with their performance
and recommend their services w/o reservation.
M.S. - Forney, Tx.
Why to seriously consider B-Keen:
My circumstances were different, in that I suddenly had a narrow window within which to liquidate a 4-bedroom home full of furnishings, plus attic, and including many assorted hand tools and business equipment. Others wanted unrealistic contracts and/or were inundated with excuses.
Barry and Lisa made room for me. They listened to my needs and acted — with professionalism, competence and my dignity in mind. Once hired, listen to their recommendations, step aside and let them work… “Fast” does not do justice here. Their preparation was 1st rate. Management during the event was equally professional. Traffic flow during the sale was not only high: it overwhelmed my neighborhood. I never broke a sweat…
The end result was a very successful 3-day event surpassing my expectations.
I give B-Keen the highest rating possible. Well done Barry and Lisa!
Michael - Hurst, TX
What an excellent job you did! Thanks so much for making this as pleasant a process as it could
possibly be under the circumstances. Your easy-going nature belies your ability to get down to
business when it really counts. Now everything is completely emptied out, both house and barn...
and you brought me a buyer for the real estate to boot. I will remain forever grateful.
D.E. - Lucas, Tx.
Barry was FANTASTIC!! He took care of everything from start to finish. We had an unbelievably
successful sale, virtually everything sold. Barry was knowledgeable and extremely great to work
with, like working with a long-time family friend. I HIGHLY recommend him.
C.S. - Plano, Tx.
Hello Barry, Thank you, thank you, thank you for the professional handling of our estate sale.
It was/is a pleasure to work with you and Lisa.
K.I. - Dallas, Tx.
Barry, you and your team were a great help.
Everybody was happy and many customers returned and bought more. In just a few days we
sold absolutely everything from the house and barn. You enabled us to close on-time and our home buyer
to immediately move-in.
I would highly advise anybody in need of help with their sale to contact you.
