Iann missed on that answer - Real Estate agents for selling the house (if you own it) but for the possessions, while you might or might not go to an Antique dealer to buy or commission-sell them, the rest Auction Services would be your normal Search the List category to find someone to handle it - either as in in-house auction if selling everything in a house, or to inventory and then truck the items to their auction house/auction barn to sell at their usual sales.

Bear in mind, and maybe check out IRS Publication 525, on whether you need documentation on value and cost basis for tax purposes, because capital gains tax may be due on any gains (and at the 25% rate for collectibles, too), so you may need some accounting/appraisal/photo documentation on that before selling them.
