Perfect!! Mona and her entire crew were wonderful. It was such a difficult time in my life selling my parents home and they made it much easier. They were very understanding and comforting. The staging of my home for the sale was terrific! The crew was friendly and courteous. They displayed items in cabinets, closets and made my parents home look like a boutique. The crew that came the day of the sale were great. I knew going into the sale that I was not going to get retail prices but they worked really hard making deals and getting the most money they could for my parents belongings. I was so surprised of some of the things that sold and some of the things that didn't sell. In the end I made more money than I thought I would. It was also comforting knowing that someone else will appreciate my parents things as they did. After the sale was I chose Mona to clean out the house. The charity Mona provided was there all day taking stuff for donation and the clean out crew was there cleaning out the house. They worked really hard and dida fabulous job. After they were finished the house was ready for the new homeowners to move in. I want to thank Mona and her crew for a job well done and I appreciate everything they did for me.

My parents have a house in Brooklyn and didn't have enough for a tag sale, however Mona arranged for a charity to pick up items and then to do a clean out of what's left. Both the charity and the clean out crew did a great job. I was amazed at how much the charity was able to take. And equally impressive job was done by the clean out crew who took the remaining items and "Broom Cleaned" the entire house. I would highly recommend their services. Much thanks to all!
I must say that Mona and her staff are a well oiled machine and were such a God send during a difficult time. I have an aunt whom I have had the responsibility to care for and help transition to an assisted living center due to her mental and physical decline. Due to her financial situation her home of 45 years needed to be put on the market to pay for her care. Between Mona, her staff and charity contacts we were able to find homes for all of my aunt's items that had some life left in them. For those items that had lived their life span, she helped to arrange for their disposal. Everything was handled in a timely fashion and exactly as we were told. It was convenient to deal with one company instead of multiples to get the job done. Clearing a home can be a very difficult job. Mona and crew made that process as easy as it can be done. Each of her staff members were extremely polite and curtious though out the entire time they worked with us. As I started this process I met a stranger that I now call my friend. I can totally recommend Mona and her crew without any hesitation.
Who is Mona ???? Just the best!!!! She did everything in her power to sell everything and worked tirelessly. She fulfilled every promise. Her staff and customers seem to have been by her side for many years. Both sellers and buyers leave satisfied. Her 18 year longevity and many contacts give her advantages that others may not have.

Mona, Thank you for a great day today. You are a very kind and fair person. I enjoyed you as a person, business woman and how fair you were but firm also. I hope to be there tomorrow morning again in Freeport. I am just trying to find some money wherever I can find it so I can purchase a few other things and hopefully talk about the veritos lens again. Regards, Primo
I highly recommend Tag Sales by Mona. Her staff is extremely efficient, organized and professional. I am especially impressed with the creativity and talent of her staging/set-up team. Not only was every item displayed and merchandised in a very high-end and appealing manner, but they were extremely fast and focused. Additionally, Mona is very accommodating and always makes herself available to her clients - answering any questions and returning phone calls immediately. Thank you Tag Sales By Mona

My Mom sold her house after 48 years in Great Neck in the Broad lawn Harbor section of Kings Point. It was a big house with more stuff than one could imagine. Furniture, fine art work and everything one could be looking for. Mona did a fantastic job organizing the sale, running it and selling like crazy. She under promised and over delivered. The true test is that if I had another sale to do I would use her again. She is great. She is great in this arena. Many thanks again Mona. You made us proud of you.

We had a tag sale recently run by Mona, and it was completely professional, very smooth and very successful. Mona and her team are wonderful people, and excellent to work with. I'd recommend her highly.
July 19, 2013
Mona and her staff were amazing. Throughout my move, they kept in touch with me, kept to every deadline and left my house perfectly cleaned out for my walk through before closing. Mona had to do things in a hurry because my closing was moved up unexpectedly, and she made it happen. She's great. I would absolutely use her services again and I would highly recommend her.
July 09, 2013
We had a huge estate sale at my parent's mansion. I was worried about having a sale at such a large house, but Mona and her large crew were very professional and kept everything under control. They managed the entire process and everything ran smoothly. The best part is that Mona has a large following of buyers who attend her sales, so a lot of people showed up for it. Everyone was trying to haggle, and Mona was fair to everyone. Even when the crowd was getting anxious, Mona kept them under control. Nobody messes with her!
July 05, 2013
Mona did a tag sale for me for my mom's house last weekend. Her pre-sale set up staff was unbelievably thorough and efficient. The sale itself went extremely well, Mona has a great following of customers which helps sales tremendously. All in all - a great experience for me. Would highly recommend.
June 29, 2013
We purchased a huge dining room table today and Mona's son helped my husband get it home. I found Mona and her team very professional and very fair.
June 23, 2013
Very nice courteous service.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mona at a recent West Islip sale. My boyfriend and I visited the sales a couple of times. Mona and her crew were top notch. I highly recommend going to her sales.
May 26, 2013
When you meet Mona you know you have met the right person for the job at hand. Our Tag sale filled an entire house with everything from antiques and collectables to house wares and hardware and furniture accumulated over 60 years. From setup to sale date which took two days, Mona and her staff handled the job with the utmost professionalism and integrity getting a fair price for items sold for both the seller and the buyer, I would highly recommend Mona to anyone who needs to liquidate an estate or a home or business!

Once, when I was taken behind the scenes at the Circus, I saw logistical magic. Elephants, complicated equipment and fancy costumes all moved and put back in good order almost immediately. I thought it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen, until I met the team at Tag Sales by Mona/Junkbuster. Before I met Mona (who is part therapist) I thought the task of emptying my mother's home was impossible. How could we make sense, and/or money out of 60 years worth of furniture, treasures and lots of true junk? No need to wonder anymore. The answer is Tag Sales by Mona. Lots of stuff sold for "good money", lots was given to charity for "good karma" and lots was appropriately hauled off as trash.... "good riddance!". The house was left spotless. Mona Scavo says what she means and means what she says. Don't be fooled by her tough, professional demeanor...she is a caring and compassionate individual who can truly make your life easier. Stop worrying...call her today, hire Mona to handle everything!
February 19, 2013
Tag Sales by Mona was nothing but professional and accommodating. Mona offered every level of service for us to chose from - setting up and executing the tag sale and arranging for a charity to pick up additional items. She was prompt in her payment with an itemized list of items that sold and their costs. She was a pleasure to work with.

Always the most organized, civilized estate/tag sale available~-will always follow Mona!

My wife and I want to thank Mona for her expertise, attention to detail and cooperation in planning and successfully executing our house tag sale in Oyster Bay Cove the accumulated contents of 42 years of our and our children's stuff as well as arranging for local charities to pick up those goods that were not sold, and carting the balance of the items from our house and preparing it so it was broom clean and ready to be delivered to the buyers. Mona is a great lady, a very legitimate business woman and most of all, she is caring and kind. She is also one smart tough lady! LOL
December 16, 2012
Mona, Tommy, Tracy you are all fantastic. You guys did my sale in August and the return was more than expected. I had contacted a different tag sale person who would not take the sale, they claimed there was not enough to do a sale. You guys took it and everyone walked away happy. I will be recommending your service to a friend who is moving in February and has a mansion in Hewlett Harbor. Thanks Again

Mona and her incredible team are true miracle workers! What they accomplished in a few days, my family and I were not able to accomplish in years! Mona was not only professional, but also wonderfully supportive and compassionate, as she helped me through an emotionally difficult time, preparing my ailing mother's home to be sold.

Thank you so very very much for giving Christa an idea about the furniture in the house they are buying. That was so kind of you. It is greatly appreciated by Christa and Scott and by me. You are always there to help people - no matter what. That is what makes you such a unique and wonderful person. I have you on my list of important numbers to remember - carry it in my handbag every day.
Hope you get some time to rest and enjoy the rest of the summer. Thanks again.
August 23, 2012
In three short words: MONA IS MAGIC!!! We had an experience on July 29th at the tag sale of perfection by a woman and her staff of hand picked individuals that took a most difficult, varied and unique conglomerate of multi-generations of "items/trinkets/memories and impossible challenges" to a level of expertise that was beyond all expectations. And with a clientele of shoppers that was non-stop from start to end, sales from "bathroom tissue" through and including an SUV 4 X 4 were mind boggling. Only Mona---> her magic and more importantly talents and total knowledge of the business could come through. Right on!!

I just had a sale done by Mona's team on 3-3-2012. They did a bang up, great job both in knowledge and action! Could not have been more pleased, especially with the short notice I gave them.
March 05, 2012
Hi Mona, I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation to you and your staff Tracy, Tom and Lena for all their professional, supportive and pleasant handling of my tag sale today. All of you helped make this transition for me easier and fun. It was truly an adventure and good beginning to moving out of my home and moving on with my life. Thanks again, Chris

Mona and her exemplary team seamlessly managed a tag sale at my home on May 6th, 2012. The morning of the sale it rained cats and dogs but this did not deter the enthusiasm of the three member team nor the outcome of the sale. I was extremely pleased by Mona's honesty and professionalism and would highly recommend her services. Thank you MONA and Big 3 TEAM members for a great day!!!
May 22, 2012
Thank you so very much to Mona and her entire crew... Our tag sale was run expertly from start to finish.. and we made more money than we expected. It was very professional done. Please do not hesitate to go with MONA!!!

Mona organized and handled a tag sale for my family, and she and her staff were very professional, timely, and courteous. What felt like an enormous and unwieldy job was excellently executed by Mona -- she satisfied every expectation and more.
March 12, 2012
I am of the down-sizing generation and vacated my Long Island home of 30+ years yesterday. I packed and removed what I wanted but the house was still loaded with "stuff." Enter Mona's team of Junk Busters. They removed everything, cleaned the surfaces and left the house better than broom clean for the new owners. I have already recommended Mona's services to my realtor and will definitely recommend her to my friends and acquaintances. I am beyond pleased.
February 23, 2012
I can't say enough good things about Mona and her staff. Tag sales can be a very difficult time for a family. But Mona's team came in and took care of everything, from advertising the sale, to setting it up, to cleaning out the house. Everything was handled with professionalism, honesty and humor - which was much appreciated. Thank you for everything!
September 29, 2011
There is no sale better than a sale run by Mona and her FABULOUS staff. She is charming and personable, and shows respect to those around her in a genuine and sincere way. She is reasonable and fair with her pricing, and creates an atmosphere of calm and ease, which is quite challenging in the tag sale industry. Her staff's organizational skills are phenomenal, and they are very knowledgeable and helpful. I always go to her sales over others when she is in my area. I am very grateful to her for giving me the assurance that where I am going is worthwhile. Thanks Mona and all of the wonderful people at Junkbuster! Xo~ Amanda

The services we received Name Mona where outstanding. Referred to us by our attorney, we could not have had a better experience in preparing a home for market. The work leading to the Tag Sale was extremely thorough, the sale very well attended, and the proceeds exceeded our expectations. The clean up left the house ready for showing. Very remarkable for a home with sixty years of accumulated memories. Name our first meeting, Mona told us what to expect, and delivered with a turn key operation. We highly recommend her to you.
February 14, 2011
Thank you so much for the great job you and your staff did at my tag sale. You took a great deal of stress out of my life by handling my sale for me and you, Tom, and Ellen were very professional, helpful and friendly. Thanks again!
January 16, 2011
Although this thank you is long overdue, the sincerity is real. My brother and I could not possibly have done the tag sales and cleanout of our parents' home prior to selling it last spring without you and your crew. Even though it was an emotional process for us, your level headedness and patience made it much easier for us to complete it. You treated us like family and we will be always be thankful for all your hard work. Although I'm determined not to hold on to too much "stuff" in the future, I would definitely call upon you again! I have already highly recommended you to our realtor and neighbors!
Best regards, Celeste

Mona did a tag sale and clean out for me in November. It was a last minute rush deal because I had to close on my house right away. She was efficient and did a wonderful job. But the most amazing thing was that the night before my sale Mona fell and injured herself rather severely. Anyone else would have postponed the sale or at least had someone else handle the sale. Not Mona. She came (battered and bruised) and handled everything for me as promised. The clean out was a huge job and that was also handled efficiently and timely. All of this was a great help to me at a very difficult time. I would highly recommend her services. Thanks to Mona and her lovely staff.
December 20, 2010
My husband and I were really pleased with everything you did. Mona, Ellen, Tom and everyone were just great; thanks very much!!
December 18, 2010
Mona and her "crew" ran our tag sales in Roslyn last weekend. I was amazed. I was not going to have this sale at first. I did not wish to have people tramping thru my house even though I was moving. I am glad I did. The sale was orderly and well as professional run. I would never have expected to realize the results!!! Thank you Mona
November 15, 2010
Thank you again Name all of my family for the wonderful tag sale & clean-out service. Everyone was so nice and the sale was a success. My son & my nephew (both 14 years old) got a real kick out of Lorraine and how she wouldn't budge on some of the prices. Of course it is an emotional process for my Mom after so many years in her house, but they were very happy years and that is what really matters. You helped to make this transition a little easier and took away all of the worry about how we would get this job done because you did the job for us. Thanks again, Mona, you have a great group of people working for you and I would definitely refer you to anyone that I know. (Speaking of referrals, I forgot to tell you that we went with Eddie Keating for the move to East Northport which went great, too. We actually found my Dad's High School portfolio the night before the move and inside, drawn in great detail was a 1930's Moving Van! Talk about timing…
I just want to thank you for the wonderful job you did clearing out my cousin's house in West Hempstead. Since I live in the Chicago area, trying to hire someone to run a tag sale and a home clean out Name out of town (Name internet websites) is certainly a leap of faith. However after several conversations with you, I felt you were the right person for the job. I was not disappointed. You came out, ran the sale, and cleaned out the house for closing, just like you said you would. I can't thank you enough for the great job you did!!!!!
October 31, 2010
Quick, efficient, reliable, professional! I called Mona at 8pm on a Tuesday evening & I had a meeting with Lorraine the next morning at 10am. Lorraine was a pleasure to work with as was Jimmy, Boris & crew! I will definitely recommend Tag Sales by Mona to other. Mona's team made what would have been a very stressful, overwhelming task a breeze. Worth every penny! Thank you Mona, Lorraine, Jimmy, Boris and team!

OUR TAG SALE WOULD COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANY BETTER, GONE ANY SMOOTHER NOR BEEN AS FINANCIALLY REWARDING IF MONA AND HER MOST WONDERFUL STAFF WERE NOT IN CHARGE!! THIS COMPANY TRULY KNOWS HOW TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER PAINLESSLY AND HOW TO SELL PROFESSIONALLY. IT MAKES "GIVING UP THE STUFF" EFFORTLESS. WE THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND FOR JUST 'BEING' THAT GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO.

I want to thank Mona and her crew for helping us with cleaning out the house and selling the items my grandmother had left. Having lost my grandmother has been very difficult, let alone handling the items and house she left behind. The services that were provided by Junkbusters made this process a little easier for my sister and myself. Thank again.
02 Sep 2006
Never even having been to a tag sale, I realized that I couldn't possibly run one myself. So I went to several that I saw in the paper. I was most impressed by Mona's and decided to hire her. What a great decision! Gloria, Ellen and James instilled my confidence the moment they walked in the door and I just sat back and enjoyed the experience. Mona and her staff turned a dreaded burden into a fun (and profitable) adventure.

Thank you so much for orchestrating and facilitating the tag sale at my mother’s house in Plainview. Thank you also for arranging for Yeshiva to come out Name Brooklyn and take so many of the items that did not sell. As I expressed to you, I felt so much better knowing my mom’s things were going back to Brooklyn to be put to good use. My husband and I went by the house this past weekend and your crew did a beautiful job with the clean out. It is truly amazing! Again, words cannot express how grateful my family is to you and your company for all you did. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

Anyone who is interested in having a successful tag sale should consider none other than Mona and her crew. Perhaps most importantly, Mona is a good person as well as an outstanding and knowledgeable business woman. She helps take the stress Name the sale. After being a customer at many of her sales it was my turn to use her services today before we relocate. Mona, along with Tom et.al., ran a great sale, with a huge turnout and many regular customers. Hire her and let her do her thing her way! Thanks to all of you for a good day and even lots of laughs.

Mona, I was so happy with the professional way you ran the tag sale and the fantastic job you and your crew did on the cleanout of my aunt's house. Since I was faced with the selling and cleaning out of a two family house and full basement by myself, there is no way I could have done it without you. I highly recommend you to all. You are the best. Janet Doctors

I am the most fortunate person because I met Mona after working with two other people who didn't come close to Mona. Not only is she caring, extremely honest, helpful, hard working but she has become my friend. My cleanup was huge--- my husband is a collector of "junk" and the amount of stuff was unbelievable after 23 years of never throwing away. She went above and beyond helping my husband throw away and store important papers and books and doing it in a timely fashion for the buyers timetable. Also when running the sale even though it was a tough time between Xmas and the New Year she helped me compose an ad for the newspapers which was enticing and successful ---people were lined up outside my door. Please do yourself a favor and hire Mona she is a treasure.
12 Jan 2005
Dear Mona, On behalf of our entire family I want to thank you for a fantastic job. You made what was to be an overwhelming task seem easy and seamless. Your personal attention was greatly appreciated and your Junkbuster Team was superb. If you ever need a volunteer for your next Estate Sale please give me a call. Best regards, Adrian

Mona cleaned out a relative's apartment. Since I'm in California, I needed someone I could trust, someone who would take responsibility and handle things, and someone who could deal with unanticipated difficulties. I hired Mona and she took care of the rest. She found creative ways to solve problems fast and cheaply. Mona turned what could have been a very unpleasant situation into a hassle-free experience.
27 Oct 2004
We are relocating out of state after 35 years in our current home, which had many good memories. For us, Mona made what could have been a very difficult day, very bearable. Mona, plus all her staff are to be commended. They were all accommodating, pleasant and an absolute pleasure to work with. Mona is the best. I highly recommend using "Tag Sales by Mona" if you are considering a Tag Sale - no one else will do!

If the time has come to move on, or sadly to close up the home of a deceased loved one, there is one place to turn for the perfect balance of sensitivity during a difficult time and the business savvy to get you the cash you deserve -- it's Junkbusters. Mona Scavo treats her clients with the respect they are due, and understands how difficult it is to close a house that contains the memories of a lifetime. She consistently gets fair prices for your belongings and finds a good match for donating the few items that do not sell. Mona and her professional team have a solid following among buyers, too. They know what their loyal customers are looking for and help them to find those special items -- that translates into sales for the homeowner and great service to those who follow her sales closely. Kindness, attention to detail, and professionalism add up to triple quality that you simply don't find anywhere else.
