Access to the Past was established in 1999 and has an impressive service record and list of clientele. Eddie Maddox, former owner, operated an upscale antique store in the heart of Lubbock from 1999 until 2006 and held an apprenticeship role in estate sale prior to fully transitioning into the estate sale business.

His business partner, Todd Curtis, recently took the reins. Todd has years of experiences, with expertise in fine collectibles spanning from books to military to fine art, and many things in between. If you have antiques or collectibles, his knowledge is critical to establishing the correct prices for your items.

Access to the Past has credentials unsurpassed in the industry. Our reference list includes a Department of Justice lawyer, retired FBI agent, Lubbock County Judges, doctors, business owners, and of course, many ordinary citizens. 

If you are considering any estate sales company, go to one of their sales and see how they operate. Is it professional? Clean? Merchandised properly? Priced properly? Signs up regarding their policies? Do they have a sales tax permit license registers with the State of Texas? Are they Collecting sales tax and turning it in to the Comptroller of Public Accounts? Are they skilled in all areas of appraising and can identify the items they are selling? 

The answers to all of these questions should be yes. At Access to the Past Estate Sales we do all these things and strive to make this a very personable and painless process for you.
