How We Work

Renaissance Household Sales

John Sullivan was previously a co-owner of With My Two Hands, a Rochester business that included an antique store, estate sales, and furniture renovation. He is now the sole owner of Renaissance Household Sales. He and his staff look forward to helping you liquidate personal property.

We schedule an appointment with you to walk through the house to assess the amount and quality of personal property being sold.

We agree on a fee or a percentage of sales to Renaissance Household Sales to do the job and sign a contract establishing the dates and time of the sale.

You give access to Renaissance Household Sales to spend time in the home to set up the sale. This includes cleaning, displaying, and pricing items.

Renaissance Household Sales conducts the sale at the contracted time and presents you with a check within two business days after the end of the sale.

All left-over items will be packed in boxes by Renaissance. You will have the option of donating these items to a local charity.

The fee or percentage paid to Renaissance Household Sales pays for set-up time, marketing of the sale, staff working the sale, and cost of credit card sales.

There are no additional costs.

About Us

Renaissance Household Sales originally operated under the business name, With My Two Hands, co-owned by brothers, John and Mike Sullivan. When Mike went on to develop his furniture renovation business, John reopened the household sales business under its new name.

John and Mike have conducted 25 household sales since 2014, and John and his staff look forward to continuing to serve clients in the Rochester, NY area.

Renaissance's number one goal is to offer top customer service both to you, the client, and to all of the people who enter your home during the sale.

"Although it was painful for me to give up most of my things in order to move into assisted living, John treated my property with respect and treated me with compassion. The great job that he did allowed me to move on with my life."
