An estate sale or estate liquidation fiduciary is someone who is hired to accept the duty of acting on behalf of the client by launching and operating their estate sale, in his or her best interest.
Clients hire estate sale companies to sell their personal property because in most cases they are not capable of launching and managing an estate sale.
Therefore, we are hired to manage their estate sale, and agree to do so, in their best interest, which means we have become our clients fiduciary.
The word fiduciary is often used to describe a relationship, such as between estate sale company and client, in which the estate liquidator manages the estate sale money for the client.
Fiduciary also describes a relationship of trust in which the client trusts the estate sale company to act in his or her best interest, i.e., an executor and estate liquidator and a Real Estate agent and estate client|seller.
Failure to respect the fiduciary relationship or follow the estate sale agreement is considered a breach of fiduciary duty, and technically (I'm no lawyer -- just one who aspired many years ago) could be held responsible for losses suffered as a result of the breach.
Finally, a fiduciary (estate liquidator|estate sale company) cannot use his or her position for personal gain, although he or she can be paid for launching and managing estate sales.
