Meet the Owner

Michele Johnson Markovich, antique dealer, estate liquidator,  UC Berkeley Grad, School of Criminology, retired Peace Officer.

Mother of two, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friends to many. Love to cook, bake anything sweet, movies, appreciate a good read, research, travel...espresso with friends, family holidays, walk, extend a giving hand when needed, pay it forward. 

:Sole Proprietor, ESTATE LIQUIDATION AND PROPERTY DISPOSITION and owner, retail brick and mortar. Separate business, by appointment only.  Estate jewelry and silver primary focus. 

:Liquidations for well over a decade, a specialty, particularly those that require challenging solutions. Direct experience in the antique business, Michele has been hand-on for 36 years plus at various levels, a vendor at the Hillsborough Antique Show, knowledgeable in the antique industry at multi-levels as a seller/buyer in the US and abroad, at auction which  provides practical application and direct knowledge of current trends and market fluctuations.  This is extremely beneficial in the identification of values often overlooked and enhances a more realistic and lucrative marketing strategy.  Being a shop owner, a separate entity and business, is a strong advantage to Liquidations. We know what people want, don't overprice inventory with retail expectations. Knowledge of current styles, we are able to get more value on "trendy" items than someone removed from the retail industry.  High bid 'wins' on expensive items, and it doesn't end up in shop inventory. Occasionally, consignments are requested by a client as appropriate. 

B.A. UC BERKELEY, Retired California Peace Officer
