About Us

Tracy Towry, Owner of Attic Estates and Appraisals, started the journey into the world of antiques and collectibles as a child, while at his Grandparents home. He absolutely fell in love with all the manual gadgets around the families’ homestead, the natural woods of the furniture pieces, the old family photos on display in gorgeous round frames; with curved glass, the collections his grandmother had of oil lamps, and of dishes.

This fond period of his childhood left a lasting impression on him. He loved the elder generations, and he loved the knowledge the generations before him could share. He craved hearing the old family stories, how they did things on the farm, and how the old mechanical implements worked.

When it came time for the family to sell off part of the estate, Tracy was 12, and he helped with his first estate sale. He was hooked. He loved the process, enjoyed the people, and loved sharing the stories of a particular piece of furniture or tool with the new owners who were purchasing it.

For Tracy, its a genuine love and affection with the elder generations, and the collections they have cared for while they were here with us on earth.

With our 40 years of experience, we have learned that dealing with an estate, or the downsizing of an living estate can be a stressful and difficult time for the family members involved. Often families feel overwhelmed with the large task. Worry is another common emotion.  Expenses are high, and the job to liquidate assets is an immense one.

  Lets face it, anyone can have a garage sale or throw up an “estate sale” sign.  A successful sale is one where market values are fully understood in advance.  So Aunt Ethel’s figurine collection isn’t sold for $20, because everyone in the family always laughed at them and how dreadful they were to dust…Turns out Ethel had something going, and those figurines are valued at $60 each!  Hiring a team with 40 years of experience in pricing at current market values dramatically increases your profits, and quickly.
