Hi, my name is Martin Bell, and I am the owner of Blue Jay Estate Sales LLC.
I am a 2012 graduate of the Missouri Auction School—the world’s number #1 Auctioneer School.
In addition, I have over two decades of knowledge in the business of Mid Century objects and general antiques and collectibles.
Clients, attorneys and local government have also had me appraise and sell specialty items online.
Four decades of real human interaction in various business and community roles have given me an edge in the business of estate liquidation. The people I serve are more important than the knowledge of things.
Since 2009, Blue Jay has conducted over 450 documented Estate Sales in western Montana and even Idaho.
- OUR NUMBER ONE ASSET TO YOU IS OUR ABILITY TO GET ENOUGH BUYERS TO YOUR SALE. NOBODY CAN MATCH US.
- Blue Jay is Montana’s only full time Estate Sale Company.
- We gladly recommend trusted, experienced 3rd party options for items of high value and uniqueness.
- Affiliate Member of Missoula Board of Realtors and Bitterroot Valley Board of Realtors.
- Liquidator for Ravalli County Public Administrator.
- Blue Jay does not have a conflict of interest. Blue Jay does not own an auction house, antique or second hand store. We sell your Estate items for you at your residence, business, or property.
- No money needed upfront to start the process. We work on commission.
- 40 plus sales a year average.
- Sales conducted year round. There is no bad time for a Blue Jay Sale (that’s what the public calls them!). We truly are an event in western Montana.
- The core of our marketing campaign is our 1200 plus subscriber email list that we send out for each sale on Sunday nights.
- Our website hosts the time, details, map and photos for each sale.
- In addition to our 1200 plus subscriber email list and website marketing, we include advertising in the RAVALLI REPUBLIC, MISSOULIAN and their ONLINE EDITIONS, plus CRAIGSLIST, INSTAGRAM, TWITTER AND FACEBOOK BUY/SELL SITES. Specialty items are advertised in their own standalone marketing when needed. When appropriate, some sales will have front page color strip advertising in the Ravalli Republic.
- Directional signs for your sale are placed at appropriate locations the week of the sale.
- We have moving, relocation, clean out options and house cleaning recommendations for you post sale.
- BLUE JAY PAYS YOU THE SAME DAY IF THE SALE ENDS ON A WEEKDAY, OR MONDAY MORNING IF THE SALE CONCLUDES ON A SATURDAY!
