Husband and wife team Maggie and Jim Hobbs founded Hunt Estate Sales in 2012 with the mission to elevate the platform of estate sales with a fresh approach by drawing from Maggie's background in elder care management. Maggie attended Northeastern University, studying the growing needs of the elderly population, and began her career focusing on aiding her clients to age in place, safely in their homes. Jim Hobbs attended Berklee School of Music and is recognized worldwide as a Jazz Saxophonist and composer. For 20 years Jim was the regional manager of a national retail and rental music instrument store where he specialized in antique and rare pieces. Together Maggie and Jim have built a sterling reputation among clients and a huge following throughout Boston and New England.
"Most days the sweat equity is literal and most nights we're side by side bathed in the glow of two laptops." says Maggie "It's extremely rewarding working together to assist our clients through significant transitions all while touting the importance of the second hand industry."
Your satisfaction is the cornerstone of our success. Read what some of our past clients had to say:
Very professional, organized, well marked and priced items. Hunt sales are always interesting and always have high quality items. Super nice folks to boot!
