Testimonials

"With reference to Larry Ditizio of the Treasure Quest Estate Liquidations and Sales, Mr. Ditizio conducted an estate sale on our behalf this past Spring. It involved the entire contents of a family home. He organized the sale from from the clean-out to the set-up; provided the advertising; researched the value of the items to be sold and marked the appropriate pricing; and controlled the entire sale by responding to buyer's questions and making decisions on price adjustments to assure that items sold.
Mr. Ditizio is extremely knowledgeable in valuing antiques, jewelry and other items found in the home. He is also experienced with the trends in sales and dealings of estate sale buyers.
Family estate sales can be emotionally taxing, but Mr. Ditizio made the process easier by taking charge of the sale and by performing an outstanding job. We would highly recommend Larry Ditizio to conduct any estate sale.

Parting with the contents of my beloved home after many happy years and memories was made
so much easier with the help of Larry Ditizio from Treasure Quest Estate Liquidation and Sales.
From his first phone call to his final visit to assist a buyer with furniture pick-up, Larry showed
professionalism to get the job done, compassion when helping me make difficult decisions
about which items to sell, and humor when the job of downsizing seemed overwhelming.
He took great care in looking over the inventory, pricing it fairly, and displaying it in an attractive
manner. Larry spent a full day carefully researching pieces that were of value and kept me
informed and involved throughout the entire process. He encouraged me to stay for the sale,
and though I was unable, Larry was in contact with me throughout the event.
The two-day sale, despite the wintery weather, exceeded our expectations. Larry and his crew
did an amazing job not only making sure things sold, but also with the clean-up process
afterwards. Since my home recently sold, it was important that the floors and walls be in the
same condition as before the sale. Rugs were vacuumed, floors swept, and in general, all looked
ready for the new owners to take possession.
Larry clearly enjoys what he does. His enthusiasm and confidence made it very easy to work
with him and trust him. I highly recommend Larry and his company to others needing this
service.

Message: Larry and Treasure Quest did an amazing job handling the estate sale for my mom's house in Delaware. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an estate sale company. Larry was honest, attentive, and hands-on. He gave us personal attention and diligence in researching the value of hundreds of items, staging, pricing, marketing, and keeping us informed. He is both professional and caring, treating our treasures like they were his own. We shopped a number of estate sales companies and auction houses, and are so glad we chose Treasure Quest. We received personal attention and an inordinate amount of Larry's and his staff's time that most companies would never offer. His pricing is well-researched and fair, and his is the only company we found with no hidden or surprise costs or expenses. He is a man of his word, which is a rare commodity. He bent over backwards to maximize our return on the estate sale, even if at his own expense. He even bought us pizza. It's not a pleasant process to try to unload decades worth of contents and memories in a house, but I'd only use Treasure Quest if I had to do it again. Larry and his staff made it easy, profitable, and as enjoyable as possible. I can't thank Larry and Treasure Quest enough. - Danielle Yearick, Esquire

We were not sure what we were going to do with everything in our mother’s house. Larry Ditizio and
Treasure Quest made the option of an estate sale much more appealing. His cost was simple, with no
surprises or hidden costs. He and his staff did a great job staging the house for sale. He has an
incredible knowledge of the history and value of many things. Anything he did not already know (which
was not much), he researched to be sure they were priced right. Larry was incredibly personable and
easy to work with. It was clear from the start that we were his priority. He went to great efforts to help
the sale be a success. Most admirably, Larry made extra efforts to help make sales even when he was not
going benefit financially. This really shows that he’s willing to go above and beyond and his customers
are his first priority. I would highly recommend Larry and Treasure quest to anyone. You won’t be
disappointed.

I cannot thank Larry and his team enough for what they did in helping me clean out and sell my Mom’s things in West Chester PA. WE had to have the house cleaned out rather quickly as we listed and sold the house with in 6 weeks.
Although my Mom did not have many valuables and I am sure Larry knew he stood to lose money on the deal he still went above and beyond to ensure a painless transaction for my 84-year-old Mom. He did what he said he was going to do and came when he said he would.
If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about his customers and is not just looking to make a quick buck Larry is the person that you should use.
He was honest and took time to really talk with both my Mom and I to ensure that our needs were being met. Even after the sale he called and told me something else sold and he wanted to send my mom a check.
I recommend him and is company if you want someone honest and trustworthy, someone who loves his job and is very good at.

Larry,

I wanted to take the time to write this note regarding the assistance you and your team provided during your estate sale in Middletown, DE. Your sale was well organized and priced fairly. Your team was professional, responsive and courteous. We also would like to thank you with the assistance of the potential purchase of the house. Although we did not get the house you helped us in contacting the executor to place a bid.

Thanks again

Estate Sale – Middletown DE

I highly recommend Treasure Quest Estate Sales. If you want the most honest, hard-working person to get the best value for your household items, look no further!

Larry DiTizio knew the value of my brother’s treasures and told me honestly what some of his things were worth. My brother lived in Delaware and I live in Florida, so I had to rely on Larry take care of everything He sold the household items at top dollar; disposed of what would not sell and cleaned the house to get it ready for sale. I was so lucky to have found him. He charged a fair price and documented every item sold. He stayed in contact throughout the whole process.

This is a family business and they take great pride in treating people right. Larry will treat you like family. This is a great company run by great people!

Thank you Larry!

Larry-
No words can adequately express how grateful my husband and I are. A few months ago, as Executors, we started tackling the clean out of our deceased neighbor’s home. We were overwhelmed! Larry was personable, professional and compassionate throughout the entire process- from our first phone conversation to the final disbursement of the sale proceeds ( we were amazed how much money was made!) Larry sorted out EVERYTHING, set aside items for sale from items for possible donation. He saved us hours of work, without the emotional attachment.
You can trust your precious and valuable goods with Larry and be assured you will do well financially.

When our mother needed to leave New Jersey to come live with us, We needed someone to help us liquidate the items in her home. Larry Ditizio came to the fore when others never called us back. He came over on his day off, and patiently went thru all of items in her entire house. He had a keen knowledge of the value of all the items, including China , Figurines, Artwork , Furniture, and collectables. He arrangeg for the estate sale taking care of the advertising and artistically displaying all the items for sale.
After the estate sale, He and his crew spent several day in cleaning out the left over items. the left the home in such clean, broom swept condition , that the house immediately sold after Larry finished. Larry went the "second mile" in sending us things we wanted to keep.

Here are some adjective to describe Larry Ditizio Honest, Reliable, Hard-working, Knowledgeable, resourceful, creative, personable, communicative, fair-minded, artistic, detail-oriented, careful, thoughtful, and caring. You will be very glad that you picked Treasure Quest Estate Liquidations and Sales to handle you estate liquidation and sales

Dear Larry and Crew,

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for a job well done! I was very happy with the way your company conducted my estate sale on September 16, 2018.
Your entire team was professional and honest. Larry worked hard before, during, and after the sale to make sure I was happy! Larry also sent buyers after my sale was over because he knew I still had items to sell. Larry also helped find a home for my Dad's 18-year-old cat! Talk about SERVICE! I can't say enough about Larry and his company TREASURE QUEST! If you need to have an estate sale call Treasure Quest...you will not be disappointed!

Thank you,

Eileen Azzopardi :)

Hi Larry,
Just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you and your Treasure Quest crew for the outstanding job you did for me by prepping for and holding a Liquidation Sale, and then cleaning out my sister's home in New Jersey. From our first discussion of what needed to be done over the Thanksgiving weekend, until the house was empty and "broom clean" waiting for its new owner, was a mere 17 days.
Until I met you, this was a daunting task I was facing. My sister passed away in late summer, she had no children, her husband had pre-deceased her by 20+ years, and I was the last remaining sibling as well as Executor of her Will. While she lived in NJ, I am a resident of Tennessee and am handicapped. I can no longer travel more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. I needed a trusted professional partner on the ground to manage this for me. You not only did an excellent job based on all reports from family and friends, but you exceeded the revenue estimate for the sale and completed the clean-out within the budget you had set.
Thanks again and best regards,
Carmin Lynch

Our Estate Sale was surprisingly very busy. We didn’t know what to expect especially since it was the weekend just prior to Christmas (we figured that most people were preparing for Christmas and wouldn’t have the time). However, people were here 4 hours prior to the estate sale and were lining up at our gate. It was crazy busy and we had a huge response. Larry and his group were very professional, friendly and helpful (keeping the crowd at bay, so we were not overwhelmed). We would definitely recommend them and use them again!

Larry-

I can never thank you enough for the amazing job that you did for me. I was overwhelmed with the responsibility of clearing a house for a family friend who recently passed. As I eventually realized the job was too much for me my son-in-law found Larry and Treasure Quest by chance. It turned out to be the best decision EVER!!! Larry came in and immediately impressed me with his warmth, understanding, and respect. He is honest, reliable, and extremely thorough. In a few days he took a house that was cluttered with stuff from as far back as 1930 and turned it into an open space that is clean and ready to be sold.

THANK YOU.... THANK YOU.... THANK YOU.......

High Recommendation for Larry Ditizio
If you are in need of a First Class Estate Sales Group that is Honest and totally Customer
Oriented, look no further than Treasure Quest Estate Liquidation and Sales, and Larry Ditizio.
Background
In May, my wife decided to retire. We have a home in Florida that we wanted to move into full
time. We had lived in our home in Voorhees for 28 years and had accumulated, shall we say, a
large amount of stuff. In addition, we had several storage units filled with things, some good,
some not so good. We hired Carol Minghenelli (also the Best of the Best) to sell our home and
she wanted to list it by August. It was going to require substantial updating meaning we needed
to move our furniture and then remove all of the other items by mid-July. Fast Forward.
Larry to the Rescue
The moving company was scheduled to move our furniture mid-June and that was pushed back
a week. Now the pressure was really on. Larry and his Crew came in to prepare the home and
stage the Estate Sale. That included retrieving the salable items from the storage units. During
the process, he triaged everything in the home as Sale, Contribution or Dumpster. A dumpster
was on site and it filled quite rapidly with things we did not need nor were of any value. Again,
Larry was driving that effort and worked tirelessly for a full week getting the home staged for the
sale.
The Sale was Extremely Successful.
The vast majority of items moved out. Those left with
some value, primarily old furniture from a family farm, were placed on Nextdoor and departed
rapidly.
Cleanout
Again, tireless workers during one of the warmest weeks of the Summer. Another week was
required to completely clean out the home and storage units. Triaged into Contributions and
Dumpster. Vietnam Vets took the contributions and the Dumpster was again full. This was
accomplished working in coordination with Carol’s contractors who were removing wallpaper
and carpet as well as painting the entire home.
Bottom Line
Thank God we found Larry. He and his Team are ultimate professionals and literally did the
impossible within a very short window of time. Larry took charge and made sure everything was
accomplished and the home completely cleaned out so the contractors could finish their job.
They helped us pack a U Haul Truck and Trailer. It was packed so well there was no damage
when we arrived in Florida. He also towed one of our vehicles to our new home.

I suddenly became power of attorney for my aunt and had to liquidate the possessions in her house. A very overwhelming situation since I didn’t live in town.

Larry set my mind at ease. He came in, found all the items for the sale, staged the entire house and garage. He priced everything. I was blown away at the items that were worth something, things i would have discarded. He has an amazing eye for saleable items and their value.

He conducted the sale professionally and knew how to get the best dollar. After the sale he found homes for what didn’t sell (donations or trash if not worth anything) and is continuing to sell a few valuables on line. He swept and cleaned the house.

What a lifesaver Larry was, and the peace of mind I had. Larry is honest, and does exactly what he says he will do.

I recommend him highly and would not call anyone else if I needed this service again. If you’d like to call me, you may.

I want to thank you again for providing such great service to my brother and me. It was extremely peaceful for me knowing that my parent’s personal possessions were treated with respect and dignity.

In the end, it is only “stuff” but it is the “stuff” that surrounded a family for more than 55 years. Many memories are stored in those possessions.

I feel a great sense of resolve that they are all now where they are supposed to be, in great part due to your excellent guidance.

It has been a pleasure to work with you and we will whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone we know who would be in need of your services.

Thank Jeremy and Vince for taking such good care of 125 Saint James and the Evaul family.

The most important lesson that I learned after I was cleaning out my late parent’s home was that I should have consulted with Larry DiTizio, owner of Treasure Quest Estate Liquidations & Sales first.
NOW, I TELL OTHERS NOT TO THROW ANYTHING AWAY
BECAUSE YOU COULD BE THROWING AWAY MONEY!

Lesson #2:
After I picked my priority & sentimental items from my beloved parents’ personal belongings, I felt sorry for the “orphaned” left-overs and began to take them into my own home until I couldn’t assimilate them anymore.
TREASURE QUEST FOUND THE “ORPHANS” GOOD HOMES AND FOUND ME MONEY!

Lesson #3:
I learned the joy of seeing “customers” love my parent’s personal belongings because
TREASURE QUEST ALLOWS FAMILY TO BE PRESENT AT THE SALE.
My sister choose to stay home because it was too emotionally difficult for her. I am more pragmatic and enjoyed interacting with the customers during the sale.

Lesson #4:
I learned to make sure that our family had home owner’s liability insurance coverage, in case anyone was injured in the home we inherited after my parents’ deaths.
TREASURE QUEST POSTED CAUTION SIGNS AT STAIRS, REMOVED OBSTACLES AND BLOCKED OFF “RESTRICTED” AREAS TO PROVIDE SAFETY AND QUICK ACCESS FOR CUSTOMERS & PEACE OF MIND FOR OUR FAMILY.
Lesson #5:
I learned that estate sales are NOT just for people who do NOT love the people who passed away or their possessions.
MY FAMILY & FRIENDS REMOVED WHAT THEY WANTED FIRST BEFORE ANYTHING WAS PRICED & ADVERTIZED FOR THE ESTATE SALE.

Lesson #6:
I learned that Treasure Quest are the experts at pricing what they know their customers will pay. They should be trusted for their knowledge and years of experience in this business.


Our myths and misconceptions about estate sales were completely dispelled by the positive experiences that we had when my family decided to hire Larry DiTizio and Treasure Quest. Our family and friends pre-selected the objects that they wanted to assimilate into their homes before the “left-over orphaned items” were advertised for our estate sale.
We interviewed several estate and liquidation sales companies. But, from the first conversation on the telephone, to the initial free consultation and at the end of the estate sale, we knew that Larry and his company were the perfect partner for us as we closed this chapter of our lives. It was an easy and unanimously vote. Thank you for all of your advice and expertise.

Mr. Ditizio,

When my Wife's Aunt passed away in July, we were tasked with having to clean out her house and get it ready for sale. Needles to say, the Aunt was in her middle 80's when she passed and collected just about everything imaginable. After getting rid of a lot of the clutter, we still didn't know what to do with the hundreds of items in her house.

Over the years I've seen many Estate Sales advertised in our local newspapers, so I came up with idea of looking into one. I went online and found a site that you type in information and you're contacted by Estate Sale professional. 15 minutes after submitting my information I got a call from you. Maybe it was Karma or just luck that you happened to call.

After my wife and I met with you, were were sold on your ability to make things happen. And you did !!

I was TOTALLY AMAZED by your organizational skills, knowledge of pricing items, and caring nature. You're a TRUE PROFESSIONAL in your field.

When I walked in the house the morning of the sale I couldn't believe what I was seeing.....you and your crew did an amazing job !! Every item was priced and displayed well in all of the rooms. The real kicker was that your crew even cleaned a lot of the house !!

Again, you did an absolutely amazing job and I thank you for it.

If in the future you need any references, please have the people contact me personally.

Larry from treasure quest estate sales is the best! He and his crew came and held an estate sale for me. I've never seen such dedicated people. Starting from our first meeting right up to the day after the sale, Larry and Crew did an amazing job! Before the sale, Larry was a stranger to me.... now he is a forever friend! I highly recommend treasure quest! Sincerely, Debbie B.

I would like you to know I did an Estate Sale with Treasure Quest after my husband died and I decided to downsize. I called a few companies but when I spoke to Larry I decided right away he was the one I was going to go with, and I'm glad I did. He made the process painless, He was at my house setting up for three days before the sale organizing. He took all the stress off of me. Then after the sale he helped me clean out the house, I don't know what I would have done without Larry and his crew. I highly recommend Treasure Quest. Linda D'Amico
