Family Tree Estate Sales focuses on the things that matter most to our clients and customers.

EXPERIENCE & KNOWLEDGE: Locally owned and operated, Family Tree Estate Sales is in it's sixth year of business. Together, our owners have decades of experience and education in the fields of antique and collectible sales, personal collecting, historical context, general appraisal studies, and marketing. We know the estate sale business!

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE: Our owners are hands-on at each sale. We will never grow too big or be too busy to give clients and customers the personal service they deserve. We start by listening and tailoring a contract and services to meet each client's needs. Our advertising, displays, signage and pricing are all designed to attract buyers and present a professional image. 

INTEGRITY: Family Tree Estate Sales is  accredited and in good standing with the Better Business Bureau and we are insured and bonded. We avoid any real or perceived conflict of interest and hold our owners and staff to a code of ethics.

PROVEN RESULTS: Each client wants cost-effective services that will put more money in their pocket. Our commission rates are competitive for middle Tennessee and are determined, in part, by the location, size and scope of the sale. Clients often report that their proceeds exceeded expectations!

Meet the Family Tree team.

Our owners join with trained staff to participate in all aspects of each sale--consultations, staging, researching, pricing and selling. In addition, each brings unique and specific strengths to the process.

Melissa Larson is a Vanderbilt graduate and former high school history teacher in Williamson County. She has completed course work in Appraisal Services and is working toward certification. Her love and knowledge of history is invaluable in research, identification and pricing of unusual items. She learned the business from her parents and grandparents, but has 15 years of experience of her own. As our organizational guru, she handles scheduling, contracts, staffing, traffic flow and hundreds of other details for sales.

Sue Larson attended Welch College and MTSU in Tennessee. Married for 42 years, she and Earl have called Nashville home since 1983. Sue and Earl are collectors with 30 years experience as antique dealers in antique malls, flea markets and antique shows. Sue's extensive experience and knowledge of antiques and collectibles makes her a valued pricing resource for each sale.

Dena Willis joined the team earlier this year. She is a long-time Franklin resident by way of California. She has a degree in Marketing and is an accomplished real estate agent with Benchmark. Dena uses her expertise in marketing and sales to see that each sale is prominently featured in all viable advertising options. She is particularly knowledgeable about trends in contemporary upscale furnishings, accessories and household items. As a successful real estate agent, she is happy to offer her services to those wishing to sell real property.

We are now booking sales for September and October 2014. Contact us now for a free consultation. We look forward to showing how Family Tree Estate Sales can work for you.

We specialize in "overwhelmed". If you have recently lost a loved one or encountered another life transition, you may be overwhelmed. We understand the emotions and stress families face during times of illness and death. Other transitions, such as major moves, downsizing, or closing/moving a business can weigh heavy on the individuals or families involved.

Don’t worry—we can help. Family Tree Estate Sales conducts 30-40 sales each year, making us one of middle-Tennessee's top estate sale service providers. Locally owned and operated by Melissa Larson, Sue Larson and Dena Willis, Family Tree Estate Sales is a family business. We have experience, expertise and enthusiasm to conduct your sale efficiently and successfully.

Have questions? Visit our website, call anytime at (615) 830-3089 or email us at to ask a question or schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. We will gladly meet with you at the estate location, briefly evaluate the estate and give you a proposal outlining what Family Tree Estate Sales can do for you—no pressure, no stress.
