Nedra Manners was absolutely awesome and helped me get through my brother's estate which I am Executor of. As a New Yorker I so appreciated the care offered me by Nedra and her staff.
Nedea is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She worked with me as we prepared for the sale. Nedra obviously has a terrific following. Her advertising reached people from Atlanta, Tennessee and beyond. Nedra has a staff that is absolutely amazing as well. I was extremely overwhelmed with amount of items we had to sell, many things in boxes with the content's unknown. Her staff unpacked everything (bulk of which was Haviland China) and staged everything on tables around the house. Her staff is kind and very hard-working. Nedra and her company made this very difficult situation of losing my brother and then having an Estate sale much easier than I could've imagined. There was little for me to do (thank you Nedra) and the buyers she cultivated were people who I know cared about the things my brother and his partner loved just as much as they did. Many thanks to Nedra and her wonderful staff for taking care of my brother's and his partner's life- long passion in the antique business. Thank you also for being so kind and thoughtful when communicating with and helping me through this difficult time. God Bless them all. I highly recommend this Estate Sales Company.
Nedra Manners at Two Gemini's Treasures and Estate Sales was recommended by our real estate agent as I needed to clear out my brother's home in College Heights to ready it for sale. She did an outstanding job from beginning to end. I couldn't have hoped for better results or for a better person to handle what seemed a daunting job. Thanks to Nedra I was able to handle everything long distance. She kept me informed each step of the way and was totally efficient and professional. She went beyond what the job entailed and helped me to accomplish many things that I had no-one else to advise me about or help me with. I am in Nedra's debt and feel that I know her and have made a friend. I look very forward to meeting her when I come to Rome to finalize the sale of my brother's home. I can without reservation recommend Nedra and her company to anyone wishing to have an estate sale in Rome or the surrounding areas!
My husband and I came to your Cave Spring sale. This was our first time to attend one of your sales. We live in Chattanooga, so it was a little distance. We had a great time and found some wonderful treasures. Thank you for a GREAT sale.
