"At our lawyer's recommendation we contracted with Cynthia Illicete-Burns (Full Circle Estate & Tag Sale Services LLC) to sell the contents of our parents' home. We were very satisfied with her work. She and her crew did all the necessary housecleaning, furniture rearrangement, labeling and display work without our assistance. I was seriously amazed at how much they accomplished and how well the home looked and how well items were displayed when she was done. There was a good deal of artwork in the house. Cynthia made a major effort to research its current value and find appropriate buyers. She kept me well informed as to what was going on.
From my point of view hiring someone to do this sort of thing was scary. There is enormous opportunity to cheat. I saw no hint that Cynthia was anything but completely honest with us. Indeed, in some cases she made decisions about selling items through auction houses that helped us but reduced her commissions."

Endorses Full Circle Estate & Tag Sale Services
"The main thing is the character of the person who does your sale. Cynthia is respectful, knowledgeable, & went the extra mile, every step of the way. I couldn't have chosen anyone better and every staff member impressed me."
Jericho Gardens Tag Sale
"Cynthia and her team were very helpful and accommodating for all of our needs. She will work with you on
any problems you might have and is always available to answer any questions. The staging was better than I
could imagine and the whole team is very professional. We could never have done this without Full Circle."
"I have comment and give praise to Full Circle Estate & Tag Sale Services for doing a great job at bringing order and revenue to a chaotic house that started out as a totally overwhelming task for me. I accidentally heard about Full Circle through word of mouth and was assured of the integrity and honesty of the company from a former client. Trying to deal with a tremendous amount of accumulated lifetime paraphernalia, that I considered mostly garbage and would have thrown away, Full Circle knew otherwise. After meeting Cynthia, the owner of the company, she realized the intrinsic value of the house's content especially to collectors and truly turned the "trash" into cash. Her staff was hardworking, efficient, conscientious and knowledgeable. The entire job was handled personally by the owner and her staff from the sorting, staging, and sales which brought a remarkable attendance and a large monetary return for which we were very happy."
Kudos from a Satisfied Customer - Bayside
"Full Circle was extremely professional, respectful and compassionate. They were amazing at organizing and staging the house, and a "man's man" garage. The staff had amazing knowledge and was perfect."
North Massapequa Tag Sale
"Cynthia kept me informed each step of the way as to how the tag sale was to proceed and to each cost we were to incur.

In addition Cynthia was sympathetic to my situation and I truly appreciated her support."

Excellent Service - Huntington Estate Sale
"This company is incredible in the swiftness and utter capability of the director and her staff to get a home and make it so desirable a place to wander through that customers just keep buying and buying as they travel from room to room. Also the Full Circle members are very respectful and friendly, that it appeared that I had friends helping me instead of paid staff. A very enjoyable experience, not to mention the amount of money I cleared at the end. That was the best part!"

"Cynthia always returned my emails & phone calls very promptly and answered all my questions, even when I thought I was being a nuisance and pesky. Cynthia is very down-to-earth and always had a great attitude, even when she was sick and coughing and could hardly talk. I was very comfortable working with her and felt she would do the best she could in handling my mother's valuables. [As for the time performance & timeline expectations] Everything went like clockwork - very efficiently. [Overall rating of services] Awesome! Cynthia helped me get through a very tough time - she is very compassionate and understanding, even when I had a meltdown. She never treated us like just another customer - we felt like family!"

"We have no suggestions as you did a great job. You and your team did a tremendous job in preparing and conducting our moving sale. Our expectations were all met and we wholeheartedly recommend your company."
Roberta & Sal of Fresh Meadows
"In a very difficult time Cynthia made the effort very smooth. The team did a great job. [They] dealt with the people, detailing the items and delivering services in a professional manner."
S. Ozone Park Client
"I found Cynthia to be very honest and trustworthy with my family's possessions, and with the financial aspect of the sale. Everything sold was itemized by John in a ledger, and all the figures added up properly in the end. In addition, Cynthia was extremely accurate with her estimate of what monetary amount the sale would generate. Most importantly, however, Cynthia seemed to genuinely care about our family, and what a difficult time we were going through in parting with the contents of our parents' home of 50 years. Her care and concern helped ease the burden of such an emotionally challenging experience."
"Cynthia handled everything very well for me. We couldn't have asked for a better person. Everything was handled in a professional way [especially] since Cynthia and her staff only had a week to get the sale altogether. [As to their approach] Cynthia and her staff were very gentle to my situation and that helped greatly. [Rating their services, they were] great, the sale went above our expectations. I would recommend Full Circle Estates anytime, and have to some of my family and friends."
