True Tales: See What This Salesperson Did When the Store’s Owner Went on Vacation

We had two very high-priced estate diamond rings at one time — more expensive than anything else in the shop by leaps. We were out of town that week, and as we were waiting at the airport to leave, our salesperson, Emily, called to tell us very excitedly that she had just sold one of them. She joked that she would sell the next one the next day. A half hour later, she called to say she had sold the second one to a different couple! We had a really good trip! — Carol Drake, Touch of Silver, Gold & Old, Nashville, IN

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
