We are a Full Service Estate Sale Company


Beacon Hill offers an extensive amount of services, all of which are designed and executed to put the client and his/her needs first. Patricia will work with you to establish which services, and/or which combination of services will work best for you.

Estate Sales:

Prior to the weekend of an estate sale we will meet in your home to assess the current market value of your valuables and price them accordingly. We will research, measure, and stage your valuables for the best possible profit and presentation. We also provide extensive advertising over various media outlets, including the internet and newspapers.

On the day of the sale our staff will monitor the flow of traffic, assist customers/buyers, maintain a prestigious presentation. During the sale we employ movers to guarantee the safe shifting of larger items around your home. These movers also assist buyers with loading their purchases.

Additional Services:

Private Sales

If you are interested in selling select items, we have the extensive knowledge and professional network to broker individual items through a private sale.


Our extensive associations with auction houses in both New Jersey and New York provide us the opportunity to consign special items to auction. We can have your selected items picked up and consigned to the auction house we believe will be the best venue for selling your particular pieces.

“There are no words to describe the professionalism and comfort Pat and her team provide. I never imagined that someone could take one of the most difficult days in my life and handle it with such ease. It was like having an extended family at every turn. It is very rare to find someone who not only has the business sense but is so in tuned to the emotional aspect of this type of sale. There isn’t anyone else I could imagine recommending”

Lesli and Steven S., West Orange, NJ

“We recently entertained the idea of having an estate sale. This was a very daunting thought as we began to think about all the work involved and the idea of all the people that would be in our house. In addition, we wondered would it be worth the efforts. The experience we had with Beacon Hill Estates Sales was beyond our expectations. Pat took over the process and we were extremely impressed and happy about how smooth things went. Pat is caring and a great partner and we would happily recommend her to those considering having an estate sale.”

Jules S., Rumson, NJ

“Pat Augenstein and her crew exceeded my expectations at every turn. Her advice was invaluable, always advocating for our best interest. Pat’s promotion was spot-on accurate: she generated so much energy that there was a line of customers waiting for hours before the sale began. Her experienced staff works tirelessly to ensure the most effective sale. From our initial meeting, to set up, to sale day, Pat was a consummate professional that we have recommended and will continue to recommend.”

Fondly, Stan and Amy B., Short Hills, NJ
