As Much as Possible, for As Much as Possible

Your estate is valuable. And our goal is simple: sell as much of the estate as possible for as much money as possible. To do that, we need to create a beautiful sale, with eye-catching ads, that is artfully staged to attract a mass of shoppers.

We don’t want leftovers, and “sold” isn’t enough for us. Instead, we carefully research everything you've got (not just antiques, if there are any), to determine the most we feel we can reasonably charge, based on the market. If we’ve got good stuff to sell, we want to sell it for the best possible price, no matter what it is.

The Power of Beautiful

We could just throw your stuff on some tables, publish some blurry photos of the mess for an ad, slap on prices, open for a few sale hours, then pack up what doesn't sell for charity or haul it off to auction. But we won't. Because that approach won’t get us your best bottom line, even though that is exactly what plenty of companies do. 

Instead, we take the Dixie approach: we focus on your sale and your sale only, attending to it with meticulous preparation and attractive promotion and staging—and are always met with big crowds at sale open. Dixie sales are always well attended, and at the end, there’s almost nothing left.

Dixie Home: A Philosophy of Integrity

When you’re handing over the keys to your home, trust is essential. It’s essential to us, too. Our reputation depends upon our trustworthiness. But it’s not just that. 

As individuals, our personal integrity is part of who we are. That's why honesty and a commitment to acting in the client's best interest remain at the forefront of everything we do in connection to your sale. 

Still not sure? Just ask us for references from past clients. We've got plenty.

Dixie Regular Customers:  The Royal Treatment (And Some Hugs Along the Way)

We have been fortunate to build a large following of loyal repeat customers, and we love seeing them at every sale. Many of our repeat customers even reach for a hug each time they enter a new Dixie sale.

Why? Maybe because our goal is to treat customers like royalty, the way we want to be treated—with courtesy, appreciation, and kindness. Our customers know, with Dixie, they’re in for a beautiful, organized, well-managed shopping experience that will be worth their time and effort.

And we don't take their loyalty for granted. We work hard to create fulfilling shopping events for them, because we know their repeat business help us deliver a strong bottom line for clients.

Our Testimonials

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.
The 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.

Dixie Estates did a fantastic job of selling off contents of my dad's home. The 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.
Robert Harris, Decatur, ALApril 2016
Dixie Estate Sales was an answer for our family during a difficult time of moving a family member to a nursing home. I can’t say enough about Megan and her staff for the professionalism that was shown. She did an excellent job of preparing for the sale—organization, set-up, staging, pricing, advertisement , etc. She did everything. The sale went smoothly and was very successful. Our family was very pleased and would use her services again if needed.

Decatur Client who wished to remain anonymousFebruary 2016
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.

I highly recommend Dixie Home~Estate Sales as your agent for your downsizing/estate sale. I found them to be very organized in their approach and highly efficient in their operation. All the people on their team were friendly and helpful and a pleasure to work with. Give them a call; you won't be sorry. I would use their services again, but I don't have anything left to sell!
