.

I recently engaged Dorothy and Larry Fowles to conduct an estate sale to liquidate my mother??s home. We verbally agreed on four things: 1) they would sweep the house clean before departing, 2) I was not to be present during the days of the sale, 3) they would take 33 1/3% of total sales as compensation and 4) they would provide me a written account of all items, and their sold price.

1: They damaged my house. Furthermore, the bathroom and kitchen sink were left in filthy condition, and they even left the droppings from the dog that they brought with them every day.

2: As agreed, I was not present at the sale that occurred over two weekends. In fact, they threatened to quit when I tried to visit my property between sale weekends.
At the conclusion of the sale, I asked to meet to discuss the result, but they refused.

3 and 4: During the first three days of the week prior to the sale, I watched Larry Fowles handwrite a very detailed inventory of the items in the house. He numbered and described each item, and provided an asking price. The same information was written on the sales tag attached to each item for sale. He continued to inventory and price items for the next two weeks.

The Fowles have not provided me with any documentation about what was sold or for how much, documentation they assured me would be provided at the end of the sale. Moreover, they confirmed they possessed this list during a cell phone conversation. Consequently, they have provided no printed accountability for my percentage of the receipts. This leads me to question the truth of the amount they paid to me.

Finally, they threatened to quit when I questioned their judgment about bringing an employee with them who wreaked of alcohol both days he was working. I should have let them quit.

In any business, a good reputation is necessary for continued business opportunities. I believe honesty, integrity and professionalism are paramount to succeeding in business, especially the estate sales/tag business. In my opinion, Larry and Dorothy Fowles, of Fowles Estate Sales, lack these qualities. My experience with them was one of the worst incidents of my life.
