We chose Legacy Estate
Solutions to handle our estate sale in Apollo Beach,
Florida in November of 2019. Boy, am I glad we
did. We had never had an estate sale before
and didn't know exactly what to expect. Bill and
company did a terrific job in all facets of the
sale. They let us know what to expect in the
process beforehand. They did a great job of
displaying and pricing the sale items. They
brought in lots of buyers. They paid us very
promptly. We cleared more money that I thought
we would. It was an altogether pain free and
professional job. And Bill and company seem to
be very honest, very friendly, and very
knowledgeable. If I would ever have another
estate sale, I would choose Legacy again.
My family and I would like to thank you and your crew
for cleaning out my sister’s house in Valrico. I know
it wasn’t a pleasant job and the fact that you worked on
Sunday to complete it shows how dependable you are. We
are grateful that Dick and Karla Nielsen recommended you

My sister and I cannot thank Bill Ryan and his wonderful
team for all their hard work. It sure made our lives
easier. We just got out of their way and they took right
over and we never had to lift a finger. We are very
lucky we found Legacy and Bill Ryan.
advice & expertise in estate sales was invaluable when
we were moving. We were going through a significant
downsizing & needed assistance in deciding what to keep,
what to sell and what to donate. Bill’s knowledge &
experience really helped us through a stressful time. We
recommend Bill’s services for your next move.“
~ Catherine &
"I would recommend Bill and his staff to anyone seeking
an estate sale/liquidation, particularly those living a
significant distance from the premises. He set
realistic expectations during our initial meeting and
kept me abreast of all developments. The house was
cleaned, as promised, and Legacy even turned in my dad's
cable and internet equipment. Thanks, again, to Bill
and his staff. Very professional and trustworthy!"
I would like to thank you and your company Legacy Estate
Solutions for conducting an excellent estate sale on my
brother Jim's estate. My brother David and I were very
pleased that we could see the set-up on the internet.
Your staff did an excellent job presenting all my brother's
items. You went above and beyond looking for some
items that we had neglected to collect or find. Since
we were both out of town, you had to send an item to my
I was glad that you notified the neighbors ahead of time as
to what to expect the two days of the sale. Apparently

hundreds of people who went through the house.
You left the house totally empty as you promised and also
You have a very professional company and we highly recommend

Just wanted to say thank you for everything you and your
staff did for my mother’s estate sale. The setup was
organized and after everything was sold and cleared out,
the villa was left very clean. Payment for all items
sold was received in a timely manner. Kudos to you and
your staff for a job well done.
Thank again for everything.

I highly recommend Legacy Estates Solutions! The compassion,
professionalism, integrity, and expertise that Bill Ryan and
each member of his team displayed throughout the entire
process was beyond incredible. From the initial interview,
to the handling of the estate items, to the final payout
Legacy Estate Solutions were by my side making a difficult
process much easier. I truly do not know how I would have
done it without them!
I just wanted to thank you for
your assistance this weekend with our purchase of the
Grandfather Clock. It made it to our home safely and my
wife's dream of owning one since she was a child was
finally realized. You were very informative regarding
the operation of the clock and also how to transport it.
We just might see you again at another estate sale. Take

We congratulate you and you team on the efficient, polite
but humorous manner you all handled the sale of the contents
of our holiday home. Your service eased our sale through to
closure taking most of the logistical pressures from us. You
and your team seamlessly fitted in with the parameters
coming from our personal requirements and timings to ensure
we had a relaxing week at the beach before catching our
plane back to the UK with our house sold and contents
We were also impressed with your efforts, after we returned
to the UK, to ensure our funds made it across the ocean and
into our account.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and

Just a short note to thank you for putting on our
estate sale for my Mom. You handled her home and her
belongings in a very professional and respectful
way. Your staff was very courteous to me and also
assured me my Mom's belongings were their top
priority. I would highly recommend you to other
families in my situation. Again my thanks! you did a
I received the information on Legacy Estate
Solutions from another agent here in Hernando
County. They did such an amazing job for my out of
state sellers. From the initial contact to being
sure to get everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, out
of the home, they were very friendly, professional
and easy to work with. Anyone who has ever had to
deal with the aftermath of the passing of a family
member knows there is just so much to do... Not to
mention all of the things they have on their plate
from their own lives. Legacy Estate Solutions is the
answer to streamlining the process and having the
right people on your side! I will continue to
recommend them to anyone and know they will do a
FANTASTIC job! Thanks so much!

Dealing with Legacy Estate Solutions was better than
we could have hoped for. Bill Ryan and his team were
wonderful. Efficient, organized and very
compassionate. They made an emotional situation very
easy to deal with. What a great job they did!
I am so happy they were available to handle the sale
of my mother's "treasures".
Could not have asked for a better job.
Thank you to Bill and his staff!

My wife and I thank you and
your staff for your understanding, kindness, and

to be one of the most honest and trustworthy people
that we have been blessed to know. Thanks again for

Larry and I just want to say thanks to you and your
team for managing our Estate Sale. We felt safe in
your hands and it took a great deal of stress off my
shoulders during this period of grief. Your team
of workers, (a special mention of Anita) worked so fast
and professionally, we were amazed. I was
especially pleased that several items the workers
thought were personal or sentimental were set aside for
me. Again, thank you, and Merry Christmas!
Working with you and your team members was better than I
ever could have dreamed. You were fantastic and I
cannot tell you how much we appreciated everything you did.
It was a very stressful time for us and you made it so much
less stressful. I can't even begin to put a value on
what you did.
Thank you so much.
Just wanted to drop you a line and let
you know how pleased I am with Legacy Estate Solutions.
While other estate companies wanted to put me off for a
month or more, your people jumped right in there and got the
job done. The house is completely empty and ready for the
Realtor to show. Being from out of state, it was important
for me to have someone on site I could trust to get the task
done. You took all the headaches of a very big job away from
me and I’ll forever thank you.
Thanks again Bill. I would recommend
your service to anyone.

Dear Mr. Ryan,
I wanted to thank you, and
your staff, for the excellent work provided by
Legacy Estate Solutions in clearing out my
step-mother's home as we prepared it for sale. The
task of cleaning out a home is overwhelming, and
in our case we had some deadlines to meet, but at
all times I was confident the job would be handled
carefully and professionally. Often times people
try to put a dollar value on their sentiment of an
item, but your staff was realistic (and tactful)
when it came to sorting through a lifetime of
household items and determining what really was
valuable It was a pleasure to meet Valerie and see
her in action as she prepared items for sale. Her
knowledge of valuable items vs. the everyday
trinket was impressive. She even rescued a few
personal treasures for me that I did not know were
in the home!
While my step-mother's
health prevented her from being a part of this
proves I know she will be pleased with the
results. I have already recommended Legacy Estate
Solutions to two people, and that was even before
the sale took place! Please extend my thanks to
your staff for their hard work, and patience with
me, through this process. Thank you again for
providing excellent service and seeing us through
this task with patience, professionalism and even
a few laughs!
what I hear the sale was the event of the
year!!!!! I have gotten e-mails from friends that
did not know that it was mom's home, or that I
owned it after her. It seems that if it was not
nailed down, it sold!

Bill Ryan and the entire Legacy team:
From first day
to last, an estate liquidation is never
a carefree jaunt through a field of
daisies! It's hard work separating the
sellable from the denotable and merely
disposable, in room after room of a
home. It's even harder work marking
thousands of estate possessions with
prices that are reasonable enough to
lure buyers, yet significant enough to
mollify hovering family members. And
then comes the title wave of buyers that
appear as soon as a home's door opens on
Sale Day Number One. - It's enough to
make some estate liquidators go weak in
the knees! But not the folks at Legacy
Their stamina, pricing knowledge,
tenacious effort to find a buyer for
every estate item, and their unshakable,
good humored confidence make them the
ideal professionals to turn to on that
day you suddenly find yourself asking
..."How am I ever going to clear
everything out of this house?!" I
Thank you for
running some of the most well organized
and efficient estate sales in our area!
So many people are grateful to you for
what you do!
Bill Ryan met with
us twice before the sale and he was a
professional in handling our situation.
I was not able to be at the sale, but
the results were more than satisfactory.
I would recommend Mr Ryan and Legacy for
any future needs in estate sales.
