The Estate Sale Process
Every step of our estate sale process is designed with you in mind. From start to finish, Mansfield Estate Sales is here to make your estate sale as smooth, convenient, and successful as we possibly can.
Before the Estate Sale
- Inventory: The best estate sale starts with a great inventory. The first step in our estate sale process is to go through all of your items – even the ones you won’t be including in the sale – to make note of everything you’ll be putting up.
- Cleaning: You’d be surprised how many “unsellable” items can be put up in an estate sale after a little cleaning! We’ll go through all your items and spruce up what we can, so you can get the best deal possible.
- Pricing: Our team of liquidation experts are here to make sure your items are priced so your sale is a success. We use an experienced, research-based approach to mark all of your items with a realistic price.
- Staging: After we prepare and price your items, it’s time to set the stage! We want buyers to browse your sale without being crowded, so we’ll organize everything to have a nice traffic flow. We’ll also arrange for attendants to be stationed outside the sale just to make sure nothing goes out unpaid for.
- Promotion: Inventory is only half of the recipe for success in an estate sale – you also need great promotion! We’ll take clear, well-lit photos of your items to put up on advertisements that will have buyers lined up around the block. We’ll also put up directional signs outside the estate sale to help folks easily find their way to your home.
- Cleanup: An estate sale can leave a bit of a mess behind afterwards, especially there have been a lot of customers. We’ll make sure your home is cleaned top to bottom, with a professional cleanup crew if necessary. You can check out our Cleanouts page for more information on cleanup.
- Disposal: Not every item will be sold at an estate sale. There may also be items that you haven’t put up for sale that you still need to dispose of. We’ll go through all the remaining items to help you decide what needs to be disposed of, what needs to be donated, and what needs to be consigned.
- Payment: The last step in our estate sale process is, of course, to make sure you get paid! We’ll draw up sales receipts after the estate sale is over and those remaining items have been taken care of.
What our Customer Say
This is the most honest estate sales company that anyone could possibly hope to find. They are professional all the way. They have done a great job of selling my merchandise at a fair price for me after my wife passed away.
I have been a customer of Mansfield Estate Sales for years. They’re very professional about everything. The way the houses are arranged, the staff, and the pricing show that they really know what they are doing. Dennis, Robert and Gary are the best to deal with. I highly recommend Mansfield Estate Sales to everyone.
Working with Mansfield Estate Sales was one of the best experiences of my life! I had put off downsizing in part because I was overwhelmed by the prospect of selling so much furniture and getting rid of 20 years of accumulated "stuff". I had no idea someone would come into my house and handle EVERYTHING. Dennis visited me before I listed my home. We did an inventory of what I was keeping and all I was not. He told me not to give away another thing, and that they would sell everything that was left, including dishes, clothing, posters, garage items, and Christmas decorations. As soon as I moved out, Dennis and his team came in and organized and arranged everything, took photos and posted them online, sent emails to their huge list of buyers, and posted signs in the area announcing the three day sale. The team was very sensitive to my family's emotional connection to the items. They were so kind and appreciative of our things. We had second thoughts and decided to keep things right to and during the sale. They could not have been more understanding. They sold everything but a few knick knacks, which they donated. When I came back to the house it was clean and empty! Two weeks later I received a nice big check. I truly felt like offering them a bigger percentage because it was that great of an experience. The exceeded my expectations in every way and I had high expectations! They made everything so easy and stress-free, which is terrific any time, but especially during a move. I cannot emphasize how they helped me part with lifelong belongings in a compassionate way. They are the nicest people you can imagine, and the best!
Following the passing of our parent's, we had a house full of furniture and appliances along with rooms full of bric-a-brac that we needed to dispose of. My sister and I didn't know the first thing about estate sales, but what we were certain of was that we didn't have the time or the knowledge required to assume such a massive undertaking. We went to the web and reviewed several estate sale firms but there were no websites to compare with Mansfield Estate Sales. Their website alone provided us with a basic education. After a phone conversation with Dennis who answered our questions expertly, we arranged to meet. Dennis and his brother Robert who works with him was very understanding of our loss and their compassion assured us that our parents' treasures would be respectfully disposed of. Thanks to their expertise and efficiency, there was little to be done on our part. The sale was remarkably successful. At the end of the third day, every piece of furniture, all of the major appliances and most of the knick-knacks were sold. What few items remained were taken care of through a charitable organization, which was also facilitated by Mansfield Estate Sales. Their crew left the home swept and they disposed of any litter before they left. It's never easy to say goodbye to our loved ones and the possessions that were dear to them, yet the folks at Mansfield Estate Sales made this part of our experience so much easier to handle. We are grateful to Dennis, Robert, and their entire crew. They are true professionals.
The inventories and sales were conducted in an efficient and timely manner. They were very sensitive to the feelings of the neighbors and were able to avoid any problems relating to traffic and visiting buyers. I intend to continue to use them in the future.
Dennis and team at Mansfield Estate Sales exercise the highest ethical standards so you don't have any lingering worries.
Dennis’s sales strategy and knowledge of the values and marketplace were able to net us many more dollars than we expected and their hands on approach allowed us to focus on the other issues at hand.
During this difficult time for our family, the Mansfield Estate Sales team made it quick and painless. The property was left as discussed and we were especially happy with the end results.
Mansfield Estate Sales helped to make our move less stressful and financially easier. We will recommend you to our friends and any real estate acquaintances in the area.
As a senior adult I just did not know where to begin. Thank goodness Dennis came to my rescue! Life began to get much easier once they were on the job. I have told as many people as possible about Mansfield Estate Sales. I felt like they genuinely cared about my things. I trusted them completely with my possessions.
The folks at Mansfield Estate Sales was terrific. I appreciate the expertise and experience they provided. I highly recommend Dennis at Mansfield Estate Sales as the best choice in handling your family home liquidation.
The BEST organization ever!! They are the Gold Standard!!
Our Aunt recently passed away unexpectedly. Once we made the tough decision to sell her belongings, we interviewed several estate sale companies. We lived in another state, so we needed a company we could trust with the house and belongings since we wouldn’t be there. During the staging, sale and afterwards, Dennis kept in constant contact with us and gave us updates on how things were going. They even accommodated letting our Aunt’s friends and neighbors have a special pre-sale prior to the public sale. The company did a wonderful job advertising the sale and there were over 300 people waiting to get inside the first day. Our proceeds from the sale far exceeded our expectations. Dennis’s team were trustworthy, accommodating, and knowledgeable. We couldn’t have asked for a more seamless estate sale. Thank you!
Mansfield Estate Sales did an absolutely AMAZING job for us recently in liquidating my mother's estate. A lifetime of accumulated treasures and belongings from various locations had to be consolidated, sorted, and prepared for sale. They worked this remarkable feat while we were simultaneously preparing the home for sale. They had to coordinate their efforts with repairmen and realtor showings. Through it all, they remained patient, compassionate, and supportive. Given the sheer volume of items, what MES was able to accomplish was beyond impressive. The organization and display of items was stunning. The thoroughness and attention to detail was extraordinary. Additionally, our realtor was so impressed with how clean (and empty!) the house was following the sale. Truly, what I would say they accomplished was nothing short of miraculous! Mansfield Estate Sales is a highly professional company. I cannot say enough good things about what a fine job this company did. Dennis, Robert and their entire team worked exceptionally hard with the best interest of their client in mind. In the midst of all the turmoil, these professionals gentlemen lifted such a burden from my shoulders. I wholeheartedly recommend their service! THANK YOU!
MES handled the estate sale for my family and did a GREAT job! I live out of state, and other than giving them access to the house, I didn't have to do a thing. They organized the chaos, drew a large turnout, sold almost everything and left the house completely empty at the end! Mansfield Estate Sales is a great "turnkey" solution for someone who needs help!
We love attending estate sales by Mansfield Estate Sales. They’re professionally organized. The staff is friendly and helpful.
So well organized! The staff are friendly, knowledgable, and super helpful. The quality of the estates is absolutely tops!
This was one of the first estate sales I went to. Boy did I hit the jackpot the first time. Then I expected estate sales to be like this. Not even close. These people are just one of the best!
I love the people here they are so kind. I've gone to three of their sales so far and I always end up buying something. They have everything so neatly arranged where I can see all the treasures. I am so grateful for kind people like them!
The staff at Mansfield Estate was very friendly and helpful. I had never been to an estate sale before going to one given by Mansfield Estate Sales, but now I am hooked.Lots of great deals. Like all estate sales as I have learned , what you buy is as is, so there is no guarantee that everything works. There will be lots of people bidding against you, so set your limit and dont get caught up in the moment. You must do your due diligence and don't bid on something you don't really want. Be prepared to pack, load and haul off your treasures in a timely manner. And make sure you have a buddy to help you load that heavy stuff when your wife insists on getting the dining room set!!
I have shopped at estate sales for about 5 years. Mansfield Estate Sale Co is one of the best I have seen. They make a real effort to arrange all the merchandise so that it is easy to see, everything is clean and well organized. ALL of the workers are friendly and helpful and their prices are fair and reasonable.
I have used Mansfield Estate Sales when my father passed and they made me much more than I ever expected! In addition, they keep excellent records of the sales so there is no question about how much money was made and what the client is owed. If you need to settle an estate, downsize, have a garage sale, etc., you won't be disappointed with Mansfield Estate Sale!
Honest, dependable and hard working. Thanks
I was so pleased with everyone that came to my house to organize all of our stuff for our moving sale. They used every safety measure and protocol to protect from the corona virus. Dennis is a born organizer and we came home from our sale to a spotless, cleaned out house. I can't imagine what We would have done without his services!
We sold our house quickly and needed professional help selling items we could not take with us or no longer used. Mansfield Estate Sales did an Excellent job in setting up, doing the sale and then cleaning out the house for us. The crew lead by Mr. Dennis were professional, knowledgeable, thorough and very pleasant and supportive to work with. I highly recommend them if you are looking to Downsize, get Organized or like us, or help Relocating.
I enjoyed shopping at this estate sale. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The house was set up neatly and the prices were clearly marked. I will be following this company for their sale.
We relocated to Dallas from Seattle last summer and were told of the Mansfield Estate Sales and the outstanding sales they hosted. As we were in need of furniture and decor, we went to a few estate sales in the area. We noticed (and were impressed by) the tasteful arrangement of items for sale. All items were sorted and displayed logically with prices being clearly marked. The sales team was knowledgeable and friendly. We have received many compliments as a result of the things we’ve purchased at Mansfield Estate Sales, and plan to continue shopping their sales and will engage their other services if the need should arise.
They were so patient with everyone and really helpful. Stopped to help customers disassemble furniture if needed. Prices were very reasonable. I definitely recommend Mansfield Estate Sales.
Mansfield Estate sales do a fantastic job selling for their clients and giving great deals to anyone buying from their sales. One of my favorite estate sale companies to visit.

The owner, Dennis, of Mansfield Estate Sales is a gem. This company always puts on an organized and decently priced sale. I have bought many treasures from Dennis and will continue to do so. I guess you could say I am a groupie. My favorite aspect of Mansfield Estate Sales is the variety of venues on their schedule. There is no snobbery in this company. I have been to their sales in all areas of town and have always found something great. The staff is helpful and nice. Items are clearly marked with a price, each room is organized, and there are great pictures featuring the current sale. I highly recommend this company as a shopper or as a client. Dennis has a deep understanding of customer service and the value of a client's belongings.
