The Treasure Seeks Joins Estate Sales By You at Rare Event, and to Film Scenes For New, Upcoming Reality Show

“Estate Sales By You did everything they said they would do – made business cards, built our website, showed us how to place our sale signs, and how to get business,” Simpson says. “That support was really helpful, and it’s still going on.”

Each and every day, a reported 60 million Americans are competitively shopping for hidden treasures in the realms of estate sales, liquidations, yard sales and auctions. Thanks to prime time television shows like the classic Antiques Roadshow, along with more recent programming including American Pickers and Pawn Stars, the popularity of the “treasure seeker” is at an all-time high.

But, what, exactly, is a treasure seeker? It is a shopper who is fully engulfed in the concept of searching for the best deals; it is someone who is digging deeper to uncover value in items that may have been otherwise overlooked. It is your neighbor, your aunt, an old college roommate, and even a former NBA basketball player. “My wife, Shelly, and I like to go to estate sales every weekend,” shared former Denver Nugget Ralph Simpson. “Finally, one day, we said, ‘we’d like to own an estate sales company ourselves, but how do we do it?’ Two weeks later, we saw an ad in the paper for Estate Sales By You, and the rest is history.”

Estate Sales By You (ESBY) is a 2-year-old venture that grooms avid treasure seekers, like the Simpsons, into being the best curators in the game. Utilizing the most comprehensive tools in training, along with access to a network of experts in different fields (guns, antiques, fine jewelry, precious metals, memorabilia, items of historical significance, artwork and more), candidates not only learn the secrets on how to spot items of extreme value, they also have the chance to host their very own treasure hunts.

In the spring of 2015, Simpson attended ESBY’s training seminar, and soon after, decided to launch his very own estate sales company, RS Estate Sales. “Estate Sales By You did everything they said they would do – made business cards, built our website, showed us how to place our sale signs, and how to get business,” Simpson says. “That support was really helpful, and it’s still going on.”

In addition to handing interested operators a ready-to-launch business, and introducing unbeatable opportunities in real estate, Estate Sales By You also teaches prospects how to make thousands while working just weekends. “Time is valuable; you want to spend it with the family – kids, grandkids. This weekend-type business lets us have fun making money, and gives us time to do other things.” The time is now to get in on the ground floor of America’s fastest-growing trend. Turn a hobby into a profitable business – learn how to host weekend treasure hunts while pocketing cash year-round.

This weekend, Simpson will join ESBY owner Mike Zipp to co-host a rare, million-dollar estate sale event taking place in Brighton at 15777 Fortune Court. The pair will be on hand to discuss their experiences and successes in the business Thursday, May 19 through Sunday, May 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., daily. Valuables and collectibles for sale will include a baby grand piano, a 1923 Dodge, several airplanes and a plethora of other vehicles, including tractors and trailers. In addition, Simpson and Zipp will film scenes onsite for an upcoming reality show which will highlight angles from the estate sale business owner’s perspective, along with featuring unique events and ESBY seminar training.

Estate Sales By You (ESBY) was developed by a veteran team of entrepreneurs interested in sharing a scalable, yet lucrative business model. By motivating other like-minded tycoons to follow in its footsteps, ESBY has launched 35 successful estate sale franchises in just two years.
