Welcome to Downsizing Advisory Service. We offer one stop service for downsizing and estate liquidations.

dale with clietsOur mission is to help seniors avoid getting taken advantage of when selling their antiques or valuables when they downsize to move into a smaller residence.

We never buy anything from our clients. We are simply a liquidation service whose goal is to return as much money as possible back to our clients.We will work for your benefit and to maximize your return. Our clients include seniors who are downsizing, personal representatives or attorneys charged with the responsibility to liquidate an estate, individuals who have inherited valuable items they do not want or individuals liquidating collections. Call Dale at (813) 244-4160 or email him for more information.

Meet Dale Smrekar, C.A.G.A. - President


Dale Smrekar has been providing appraisal services for attorneys, guardians, and individuals for the past 13 years. He provides appraisals for estate inventories, guardianship inventories, estate planning, estate distribution, insurance purposes, I.R.S. requirements, bankruptcy, and divorce.

Our appraisals meet Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) Standards and are accepted by local court systems, insurance companies and the I.R.S.

I.R.S. regulations require the use of Certified Appraisers and many courts will soon follow.

Dale has authored over fifty published articles on antiques, and has over eleven years of experience as a social worker/supervisor with the State of Florida Medicaid assistance program.

The Downsizing Advisory Service serves the geographical area of West Central Florida, from Crystal River to Sarasota. We will provide liquidation services for large estates, artist estates or art collection estates outside this area on a case by case basis.
