Hi, I'm Audry, and I am the owner of Castaways.
I absolutely love what I do. I once a owned thrift store. During that time, a friend of mine referred me to host an estate sale for a friend of his. I did. It went well. Then I received another referral. Then another. The next thing I know I'm receiving call after call to host sales. I fell in love with hosting estate sales. I then made the decision to close my store, because I felt it was a conflict of interest when hosting sales. And I haven't looked back since.
My job, as the 'organizational leader' of your estate, is to ensure that Castways sells as much as possible for you. When you walk into an estate sale we are hosting on the second or third day you will see a very noticable difference in the amount of inventory left. After visiting and shopping other estate sales, I told myself I would never have a sale that looked like I sold nothing on the last day (and this was before I even had an estate sale company!) So, from the very beginning, I have done my best to make sure we sell as much as we absolutely can, Sure, there are off weekends when people are holding tight to their hard earned money. Maybe there are 15 garage sales on the same day as your sale. Perhaps the estate just doesn't have a large selection of quality merchandise. All of these can affect the total outcome of your sale. However, we will adjust, and we will give you 110% by doing our absolute best to get it sold.
Work hard. Finish what you start. Do a job you can be proud of when it's done. Be honest. That's who we are.
The Answers You Need

Castaways serves Lampasas County, Coryell County, Burnet County, and Bell County. This includes the cities of Copperas Cove, Kempner, Lampasas, Burnet, Gatesville, Kingsland, Buchanan Dam, Adamsville, Harker Heights, Killeen, and all areas in between.
WHY SHOULD WE HAVE AN ESTATE SALE?
An estate sale is a fairly quick liquidation of assets, in most cases, allowing clients to get the house cleared and on the market.
Estate sale companies have a better understanding of what sells and what doesn't, and they price accordingly.
One of the key ingredients to having a successful sale, it knowing where and how to advertise. Estate sale companies utilize all advertising methods and have a large following, thus attracting more customers to your sale.
WHY SHOULD WE HIRE CASTAWAYS TO HOST OUR SALE?
We LOVE our job. This truly makes a difference in any workplace setting.
We are on our feet moving the entire sale. Merchandise is constantly being shuffled to ensure all items are in a line of sight, and not left on the floor or under a table.
All items at our sales are priced. Customers do not have to chase us down to inquire about pricing.
We do help our customers load their purchases. Sometimes it's the difference in making a sale or not. Our customers love this about us, and it is just good business.
We always ensure there is a restroom available for people shopping the sale. Comfortable customers stay and shop longer. It is another thing our customers appreciate about our sales.
We accept debit/credit at our sales. In a world of plastic, can you imagine if we didn't?
Customers using our Square terminal for purchases on a card are prompted to leave feedback for us that is not available to the public. What do they say? "Always friendly. Well organized. Awesome customer service. Prices are always fair."
The absolute best way to find the company that is right for you and your sale is to attend other estate sales on the first and last day of the sale. Visit with the team and owner. Get a sense of how they conduct their sales, then hire the company that meets YOUR needs. We all operate differently, and at the end of the day, it is about finding the team you believe can deliver the results you are looking for.
HIRING AN ESTATE LIQUIDATOR
We encourage all of our potential clients to visit with several estate sale companies before hiring anyone. Hire a team who can meet your needs and who you feel comfortable with. Selling an estate, especially your estate, is a big deal. With only a 2 or 3 day selling window, you are depending on the company you hire to liquidate as much as they can. Ask questions. Get answers.
WE TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING
Castaways is committed to getting the job done, especially when it comes to hosting your sale. You can count on us to go above and beyond, ensuring you are satisfied every step of the way.

SALES ON THE HORIZON
These folks are polite, nice, and professional. The lady in charge is calm, focused, and is almost always smiling. She sets the example for everyone! She is always moving and working hard. I wished I had her as one of my leaders in the Army back in the day!
We think you are "Wonder Woman".
Audry and her team are efficient and professional. You will not be disappointed. They work extremely hard to ensure the best results for their customers.
Audry is a true professional and one of the most honest and hardworking people I know. If you are going to have an estate sale, I highly recommend her.

Lost my bride of fifty years in December and decided to move out of the "forever" house I had built her, just in time to get isolated by the zombie apocalypse. I never realized what a "collector" my bride was, but Audry jumped right in and sorted, displayed, and priced everything and made it much easier than I thought it would be. A hard working, square-shooting business woman who was a pleasure to deal with.
I highly recommend Castaways. Audry and Sarah worked hard, and I had a very successful two-day sale. Audry's reputation is well known, as many people who came follow her sales. Her photos and advertising of my sale were also impressive. Call them for your estate and moving sales. Thank you, Audry!
Very professional, excellent service. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend.
Having attended several of the Castaways estate sales, I have found the ladies to be very helpful, honest, and friendly. Thank you so much for delivering the bluebonnet picture to me on your way home. What a great gesture!
I highly recommend Castaways Estate Sales. They are very organized with a friendly staff. I always find so many things at her sales. Can't wait for the next one.
I'll start off by saying I'm not easily impressed. But the Castaways team was seriously impressive! From the moment they arrived to set up pre-sale, all the way through the 3-day estate sale they were fantastic! They established the ground rules, communicated well, were organized, professional, courteous, friendly, punctual, and worked extremely hard to make it a successful event. Can't say enough good things about Audry and her team! Thank you again for taking the reins, leading, and collaborating throughout!
