We are a family owned business based in Southern California. We live and breathe antiques and have had a passion for it since we were little children. On a daily basis, we help individuals like you buy or sell antiques as well as manage estate sales and liquidations across Southern California.

For over two decades, our parent company, Erlich, Kramer & Associates Antiquarians, LLC has specialized in selling antiques and rare books online. Eventually, under the parent company, the co-founders, Adrian and Alice Danescu decided to complement our offering with two new endeavors – California Estate Liquidators and Trove Auctioneers.

California Estate Liquidators is an estate liquidation company which for the past three years has been a major driving force in liquidating estates in Southern California. We help you through the entire process of conducting an estate sale, including the promotion of the sale.

Trove Auctioneers is an auction company complementing the other two services while allowing both, buyers and sellers to have access to multiple choices when it comes to buying or selling. Our auctions are powered by Liveauctioneers.com.

I had a number of assorted items I needed to part with, and Adrian took care of everything for me from start to finish. He spent about 4 hours with me and looked over each item and explained the process. Adrian is friendly, likable, patient, trustworthy, very knowledgeable and was eager to answer all my questions. In no time, I felt like I was in competent, capable hands and felt completely satisfied with the outcome. I would give Adrian 10 stars if I could, and would gladly do business again with him anytime!! Thanks so much, Adrian!

I bought a beautiful handwoven rug from Adrian through Live Auctioneers. I'm very happy with the purchase and was impressed with the effort he went to have it shipped from Romania to Canada. A great seller who I would be happy to purchase from again.

Daniel Papacostea

We were very satisfied working with Adrian on selling some family antique and vintage pieces. He was very professional, knowledgeable about pricing and as a result the auction went very smooth and satisfying for us. We warmly recommend him to anybody who wants to sell treasures in a timely manner at the most fair prices

After we walked away from our home and possessions - Adrian and Alice did the rest. From advertising to photographing to marketing to handling calls - perfect from start to finish. They organized our things (everything from cars, appliances, furniture, jewelry, and trinkets). In addition to managing our estate sale, they coordinated Salvation Army for pickup of unsold items, delivery of large furniture to buyers, and clean up of house to get it ready to show for sale. They are a trusted resource when representing the owners interests in liquidating an estate.

Adrian went above and beyond with helping me find some specific items that I was looking for. He responded to all of my emails in a very timely and professional manner which showed his dedication to helping his seller as best he could. This specific estate sale had thousands of items and he was not only able to tell me that they indeed have the items I was looking for but also sent me several pictures. He was more than happy to set them aside for me and make sure I was able to purchase them the day of the sale and had a great attitude. There was a line all the way done the driveway and with Adrian’s help I was the first person paid and able to get out of the others way. Thank you so much Adrian and I look forward to buying from you at many more auctions to come!
