HOUSTON (KHOU/CBS) - Ben Weissenstein knows people have better things to do than sort old belongings and sell them in their front yards, so he makes a living out of doing it for them.
Weissenstein is the founder of Grand Slam Garage Sales, a company he started 10 years ago when he was only 14.
"They basically say, 'here's my stuff, take care of it,' and we do the rest," Weissenstein said.
He is a born entrepreneur, on the cover of the Houston Chronicle selling lemonade at age 4. Now 23, he is offering a service he says takes the headache out of trying to organize all your stuff and getting rid of it.
"We come in, take the stuff out, organize, price, sell everything and whatever doesn't sell, we haul off as well," Weissenstein said.
The company charges a flat fee of $195 plus 25 percent of sales less than $800, 30 percent of sales between $800 to $999 and 35 percent of sales more than $1,000.
Some homeowners even leave town while he and his staff take care of everything.
"It's great. I didn't have to do anything except point and say, 'this goes, this doesn't,'" Candy Clay said.
Last year, Weissenstein said the company had more than $100,000 in revenue. Now he is working on going nationwide.
