We also take extreme care in organizing and staging items for sale, both to ensure
We don’t want leftovers, and “sold” isn’t enough for us. Instead, we want to sell items for market-based, reasonable prices—and not just give them away for practically nothing just to get them gone. If we’ve got good stuff to sell, we need to sell it for a good price.

“Dixie Estates did a fantastic job of selling off contents of my dad’s home. Carolyn and her staff are extremely professional at staging, promoting, researching, and pricing which ensure that you get the best price possible. They listen to your needs and are responsive to your requests. I highly recommend Dixie estate services.”

“Dixie Estate Sales was exactly what we needed, when we needed it, to help us move forward after the death of my mother. Our situation was especially complicated because we live across the country and I am an only child.
We wanted to get the highest value for my mom’s collection from her 90 years. But we also needed someone who could work hand-in-hand with a local real-estate agent who wanted to get the house on the market as soon as possible to take advantage of the spring and summer real-estate market when families are looking to move.
Carolyn and her people at Dixie were exactly what we needed. They were a delight to work with–totally honest, which was so important in our long-distance situation. They were extremely collaborative with our real-estate agent through the process of photographing the house and contents for both the real-estate listing and estate sale. The staging they did for the house photos was exceptional. And they did an outstanding and sensitive job sorting and organizing the contents of the house to get maximum value.
I would completely encourage anyone looking for someone to organize an estate sale to use Dixie. They were exactly what we needed, when we needed it. And they did their job in a super professional, honest and sensitive manner.”

“When looking for a company to sell the personal effects of my very good friends who had passed on, I wanted a company that would conduct the sale with the dignity and respect deserving of this special couple. After interviewing several companies, I settled on Dixie Estate Sales primarily because they were more flexible in working with the requests we made and there was a comfort level as we sat and discussed procedures.
The sale was conducted over two weekends with time between the sales to allow proper presentation of all the items. Dixie researched values of items they were not familiar with in order to get a fair price for the article.
Countless hours went into the preparation of the home. I was kept updated as they progressed. When the time came, I was comfortable with having them in charge of the sale.
Dixie proved to be trustworthy and when the sale was over I only had to bring in a professional crew to deep clean the house before placing it on the market. If I need such a service in the future, I will call Dixie.”
