Welcome To Naperville Traders
Naperville Traders Estate Sales provides Professional Estate Sales and Services in the Naperville, DuPage, Will, Grundy as well as Cook and Lake County areas of the Chicago Metro area. We are different from the hundreds of other estate sale providers in that we have a very “Shop Friendly” and “People Friendly” approach to our Estate Sales that enhances the buying experience for our customers. We have an enormous following of regular customers that attend our sales, which enhances our ability to sell at very competitive pricing as well as provide a service to our Estate Sale client.
The anatomy of an estate sale has changed over the past several years in the Chicago area. Typically when someone hears the words “estate sale” they assume someone has passed away, but this is not usually the case lately — as a rule, in the urban and suburban areas people are not dying in their homes. Rather, the eldest of the Baby Boomers are now in their mid sixties and retiring, their kids are now adults and are scattered all over the continent, the Chicago weather is not appealing, nor are the taxes, and so the Boomers are downsizing and moving out of Dodge, mainly to warmer climes. They would rather sell most of their belongings here than pay to move them, realizing most of their decor will probably not jibe with the new location.
In addition, their parents’ generation is looking to downsize, move into a senior or independent living complex, assisted living or an apartment, so you have two generations looking for estate sale services. In addition, those going through short sales or foreclosures, or a divorce also need services, so as you can imagine, the need for seasoned estate sale pros that know what they are doing is greater than ever, and Naperville Traders Estate Sales offers their clients a valuable and trustworthy service that gets the job done, pricing each and every object in the home with research based integrity, maximizing client revenue with the ultimate goal of clearing out the home in a timely manner. We don’t charge a minimum like many estate sale providers and we set up, organize, price every item in the home as well as market our sales via a number of internet web sites and use both email and social marketing techniques. There is no substitute for experience, integrity and reputation when providing a professional estate sale.
Naperville Traders Estate Sales has a loyal following of over 5,200+ customers on our email list that look forward to attending our next sale. Naperville Traders offers the full liquidation of an estate, including automobiles, boats or camping vehicles. We are fully qualified to interact with realtors, attorneys, executors or the Court. In addition, we offer optional Services, such as post-sale Internet or eBay consignments for items that require a more global audience, and we can recommend additional services for the removal and disposal of leftover items to a charity of choice and/or a liquidation service.

- Huge Barrington Estate Sale–The Biggest Sale of the Year
Tony Accardo and his wife, Clarice, had lived in an in-law cottage on the 22-acre Barrington Hills property owned by his daughter and son-in-law, Ernest Kumerow. That property, known as Willowgate, had been listed back in 1996 for $2.8 million and later for $2.5 million. The Kumerows sold Willowgate, in September 1999 to the current owners.
Tony “Big Tuna” Accardo died — remarkably, of natural causes — at age 86 in 1992. The “reputed” mob boss (he denied holding the position and eluded prosecutors) headed Chicago’s Outfit after Al Capone, and upon Accardo’s death the director of the Chicago Crime Commission said it was “the end of an era.” Accardo may very well have been a gunman in the 1929 St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, and he was on Chicago’s public-enemy list in 1931. But that was just the beginning of a long, dark career. For decades, he controlled the Outfit, and despite numerous arrests for activities ranging from murder and kidnapping to extortion, union racketeering and gambling, he never served any jail time. A 1960 conviction on tax evasion was overturned on appeal: the Big Tuna (apparently, he once caught a tuna weighing 400 lb., or 180 kg) was slick. He was also aggressive: another of his nicknames, “Joe Batters,” alluded to his handling of a baseball bat — and not for the game.
