Hi, my name is Martin Bell, and I am the owner of Blu-J Estate Sales LLC.
I am a 2012 graduate of the Missouri Auction School—the world’s number #1 Auctioneer School.
In, addition I have two decades of knowledge in the business of contemporary and antique items, furniture and merchandise.
In that time, I have appraised and sold specialty items for private clients, financial institutions and Estate Attorneys.
After almost a decade of specializing in Mid Century Objects and Furniture, I transitioned into Blu-J Estate Sales LLC in 2009.
Since then, Blu-J has conducted over 300 documented Estate Sales in Western Montana.
Blu-J is Montana’s only full time Estate Sale Company.
Member Bitterroot Valley Board of Realtors and Bitterroot Chamber of Commerce.
Blu-J does not own an auction house, antique or second hand store. We sell your Estate items for you at your Residence, Business, or Property.
40 sales a year average.
Sales conducted year round. There is no bad time for a Blu J Sale. We truly are an event in western Montana.
Generally, we conduct our sales over a 2 to 3 day period—usually Thursday through Saturday. Items are priced in the home and each sale is recorded with the cashier. We open on Day One after work so our attendees have time to get off work and make it to the sale. This first night is the truly the heart of the Blu-J success story.
Vehicles, farm equipment and high value items sold via sealed bid first night of sale.
OUR NUMBER ONE ASSET TO YOU IS OUR UNMATCHED ABILITY TO GET ENOUGH BUYERS TO YOUR SALE. THIS IS OUR TRUMP CARD EVERY SALE, EVERY YEAR. PERIOD.
The core of our marketing campaign is our 800 plus subscriber email list that we send out for each sale on Sunday nights.
Our website hosts the time, info, map and photos for each sale.
In addition to our email and website marketing, we include advertising in the RAVALLI REPUBLIC, BITTERROOT STAR, MISSOULIAN and their ONLINE EDITIONS, plus CRAIGSLIST and FACEBOOK! Specialty items are advertised in their own standalone marketing when needed.
Directional signs for your sale are placed at appropriate locations the week of the sale.
We have clean out options and recommendations for you post sale.
BLU-J PAYS YOU THE SAME DAY IF THE SALE ENDS ON A FRIDAY, OR MONDAY MORNING IF THE SALE CONCLUDES ON A SATURDAY!
