When Shauna and Susan came to assess the estate of my late Great Uncle, I was very impressed with their depth of knowledge. They really know their stuff – or I should say, my Great Uncle and Aunt’s stuff from the 1950s. They gave us a realistic view of what they could do and, I’m happy to say, they delivered. They handled everything with no hassles or headaches. It was great relief to be able to turn over everything to Shauna and Susan since we live 100 miles away. We signed some paperwork, handed them the keys and came back 2 weeks later to pick up the check. Thank you, Shauna and Susan for your professionalism and expertise.

Shauna, Thank you so much for handling the estate sale at Chevy Chase Drive. From our very first meeting with you, we realized that we were in the hands of absolute professionals. The preparation and staging of the items for sale vastly improved the Real Estate value of our property while the sale was in progress. Everything agreed to by your team was delivered, and then some!
On another note: Moving and the sale of personal items can sometimes be traumatic. In this case, you just cannot even imagine the total relief and comfort you provided us during a trying time.
Thanks once again.
Our office had less than a month to vacate an eight thousand
square foot home that we had been working out of for the
past sixteen years. With so little time, we looked around
and thought to ourselves, how on earth are we going to do
this? Had it not been for Shauna Novotny and her
team, there is no way we would have been able to tackle such
a massive undertaking. Shauna and her team moved in quickly,
helped us properly tag what office furniture was of value,
recommended an amazing professional moving company to us,
and most importantly, helped us dispose and liquidate the
office furniture and equipment that they were unable to sell.
Shauna and her staff are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to selling antiquities
and they really do relieve the stress that comes with tackling an estate sale.
We cannot recommend them highly enough. They are one of the best at what

Novotny Antiques conducted an estate sale for us in the
Spring 2010 at our Glendale home. We interviewed four prospective
estate sale professionals and we decided upon Novotnys because
of the knowledge and experience Shauna and her team had on
the variety of antiques and quality items we were selling
including silver, china, fiestaware, artwork, and antique
furniture. We were very pleased and impressed with the considerable
time and preparation Shauna put into our sale, which she
staged and ran perfectly and she exceeded our high expectations.
In addition, Shauna has continued to display and sell our
quality unsold items in her shop. Equally important to us
was that Shauna also sold or disposed all of our regular “yard
sale” stuff, which was considerable and left us with
a clean and empty house.
Shauna and her staff are interesting,
energetic, and enjoyable folks to work with and they helped
relieve the stress and anxiety of all of the emotions and
questions that come along with the sale of many years of
collecting and memories. We have only good things to say
about Novotny Antiques and would highly recommend them to
anyone interested in having a professional, well organized,
well prepared, successful estate sale.

After more than thirty years of collecting and storing antiques
we decided that we needed to sell our "treasures".
Just the thought of sorting, cleaning and displaying the
pieces as well as finding a way to market them was overwhelming.
We spoke to numerous people who referred us to Shauna Novotny
to take care of our estate sale . We are glad that we made
the decision to turn this sale over to Shauna.
learned first hand that Shauna is an energetic, positive,
hard working and enthusiastic individual who gets excited
to take on huge task of organizing and running an estate
sale. She is knowledgeable about antiques and she is excellent
in dealing with the public. No task seems too great for Shauna
and she "jumps right in" to take charge. Most importantly,
she puts her clients at ease during this stressful process.
is one of the most honest and direct individuals we have
met and has had complete integrity in every interaction we
had with her throughout the process of selling our antiques.
She is kind and courteous, warm and "down-to earth" and
truly a joy to deal with.
It is our pleasure to give the
highest possible praise and recommendation to Shauna Novotny.
We now consider her a trusted friend and we look forward
to a future personal and professional dealings with her.

Shauna Novotny of Novotny's Antique Gallery ran our estate
sale during our move from La Canada to Pasadena. She was
professional and was extremely knowledgeable when it came
to pricing out antiques and collectibles. We were extremely
satisfied with the outcome of the sale.
We would highly recommend her.

Shauna Novotny conducted an estate moving sale for our family
in 2007. Moving from San Marino to Palm Springs. A great
deal of downsizing needed to be done
Mrs. Novotny was very competent and professional in pricing,
preparing and disposal of a houseful of furniture and accessories.
We can comfortably refer Mrs. Novotny for her knowledge
and professionalism in holding house/estate sales.
Shauna Novotny was very helpful setting up and conducting
an estate sale for us in Sept. of 2010. We had numerous victorian
antiques and furniture that she was able to advise us about
in regards to value. She was very professional in all of
her advice, suggestions, and especially her cleaning, minor
repair work and setting up and conducting the sale. We were
very pleased with the final outcome and can not recommend
her highly enough.
