About Us - Estate Services
Licensed & insured estate sale planning
Whether you’re downsizing, have lost a family member, or are moving into a new home, Thea’s Estate Sale Services is here to help you transition smoothly into the next phase of your life. I’m Thea Villaseñor-Coleman and my knowledge of antiques goes back to my childhood. My parents were antique dealers and my father became a furniture designer. I grew up working in both retail and wholesale markets. My early life led me to become an antique dealer and small businesswoman and gave me the skills needed to provide the most thoughtful and experienced estate sale services in our market.
But estate sales are more than a task and a transaction. They are my way of providing an important service to my community. I am honored to put what I know to work to help people through the often daunting task of letting go of personal belongings. I hope you consider coming to me for your family’s estate sale needs.
Thea has a BA in visual design and over 20-year business history in the Portland Metro area. She is passionate about history and research and incorporates this in every sale. Quick organization and problem solving is something she learned to do on the road for antique show markets.

"Thea conducted a successful estate sale for my father’s estate in October 2018, running an orderly and dignified event, and working with integrity at every stage. She kept all promises and followed her schedule to the minute, with heavy advertising and high intelligence during every phase of the operation. Thea’s methods resulted in a profitable result for all participants."
"Thank you for all your work on the estate sale, we really appreciate everything that was done and the professional manner to which it was done."
"It's difficult to put into words how much Thea helped me by managing my moving/estate sale. I found my self downsizing while going through a divorce. I didn't want twenty years of things that my ex I collected together and needed a fresh start. I couldn't imagine watching strangers sift through our belongings so I called Thea. She came over, assessed what I had and explained the whole process. The commission she collects is worth every penny for the service she provided. She took days (beautifully) staging all the items for sale, marketed the event, managed the sale for 2 days, arranged a charity truck to pick up anything that didn't sale and cleaned up after the sale was over. She is professional and amazing to work with. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
