The “official” staff member in terms of using multimedia. He creates much of the company’s advertising and can arrange a homestead where each room and space prepared for a sale resemble a scene from an invisible film or television program. His expertise ranges from contemporary settings to those that speak for selected post modern 20th century-era time periods. When not co-conducting an estate sale, he becomes involved in media preservation. He has worked in tandem with such respected institutions as The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, The Paley Center for Media, as well as the estates of those once involved in media production. With an enthusiasm for movies ranging from commercial features to amateur home movies, his deep specialty is vintage television. He is also the spouse of Mary Borowy.
Mary Borowy wears many hats within the organization. As a native Californian extending five generations, she is fully knowledgeable to the Los Angeles area and its surrounding regions. She also has experience in the proper arrangement in preparing a home setting for a sale, taking experience with working with her sibling, a professional set decorator that garnished four Emmys in television production. She also is staffed as sale cashier where she greets each customer with a smile and a bit of good cheer! Mary’s specialty is kitchenware and related commodities.
