Next Chapter:  Estate Sales & Household Transitions has one goal:  to make your transition easy.  

Our philosophy.  We see ourselves as consultants, and start by visiting with you on site to determine your individual needs.  We help you decide what to sell and what to keep, helping you make the best decisions so that you will be happy you did the sale.  You fit our services to match your needs. And, providing a stellar customer experience for you and each shopper is our passion. 

Next steps.  After our site visit, we provide you with four documents:  an agreement, a marketing plan, a timeline, and estimated expenses for the sale.  You hand us the keys and we do the rest.    

Breadth of service.  We offer two offices, one in Charlotte and the other in the Triad area. (We travel as needed!)   We are backed by over 25 years of experience in all types of estate sales, tag sales, liquidations and more, and have conducted successful sales in the Carolinas and Virginia.  Our Next Chapter team offers over 35 years of retail marketing experience cited for excellence with international awards, and our team has extensive customer service and retail management experience.  

Most importantly, we're a family run business.  We care about helping other families. From downsizing to combining households to working through the unfortunate loss of loved ones, we make things easy by providing the support and expertise you need to achieve your goals for the sale. One size does not fit all, and we work hard to help address your individual needs.  

Getting started.  As we mentioned earlier, our free consultation provides us with the information we need to give you an agreement, marketing plan, timeline and estimate of expenses for your sale.  After you sign on, hand us the keys and we organize, display, evaluate pricing, and conduct the sale.  

  • Before the sale,  our team applies its  retail marketing experience to present a top-notch sale.  We believe presentation is everything.  That means beautifully displayed merchandise, individually priced with professional price tags, and no magic marker signs anywhere.  
  • During the sale,  we want each customer to have fun, and feel we are ambassadors of our clients. Our easily recognizable customer service team loves answering questions and getting to know our customers as they shop.    
  • After the sale,  we work with you to clear out what did not sale in a number of ways, again based on your needs.  Also, we offer a Second Chances program and take selected items on consignment to help find a home for some great treasures.  We provide options and help coordinate a successful conclusion.  

Next Chapter . . . household transitions made easy.  Visit our website at for more details, including a sample agreement.  Let's get started!

Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3209.

Our Testimonials

I want to say thank you for all your hard work and your help with this transition. As you know, my parents’ house was filled with all sorts of stuff as a result of years of holding onto everything. Ed, you told me you love having lots of stuff, and you were good to your word.

You and your team have been down to earth, friendly and informative throughout this whole process. I had contacted another company who did not follow up as promised. It turns out it was a blessing I ended up with Next Chapter.

The second thing that made me choose you is the fact you have a website. Like a lot of people I like to get a rough idea about what to expect before I make a call. Your website was very informative and it did its job. Of course meeting you and Judy sealed the deal because you both are so personable. I appreciate that!

Thanks for making this transition so much easier for my dad.

Ed and his team at Next Chapter are lifesavers! I was drowning in boxes of items after I sold my house.

With almost 30 years of collectibles, house wares, art, you name it; the garage at my current home was packed to the hilt. I was totally overwhelmed until Ed threw me a life line. He and his team categorized, cleaned and displayed everything without me having to lift a finger.

I was so amazed at how beautiful all of my things looked when on display at the sale; I had to think twice about giving them up. It was time to let go and I thank Ed for making my life so much simpler. Shedding layers of ‘stuff’ is liberating!

Thanks again to Ed and his terrific team! It was effortless! I wish I had called them sooner.

Having a warehouse is a wonderful tool for me and my business, except when I know I have too much that I don’t need. We are so busy moving from one major event to another that I could not possibly add a warehouse sale to my list. And, my team would probably shoot me!

Ed and his team stepped in to help us uncover all sorts of stuff we didn’t need, and merchandised an area in our warehouse to showcase those items to the general public. As a visual person, it was so important to me that everything looked perfect. The Next Chapter team made an unpleasant task fun and exciting, and helped us find a way to make more space for new stuff. I think we can make this an annual purging!

I had been working on my sweet aunt’s estate for months and knew I needed a way to sell some of her household goods. The task of unboxing, cleaning, researching the value, pricing and then conducting the sale seemed just so labor intensive and time consuming. On top of that, I was already spending lots of time at the house getting it ready to sell.

I am so grateful for the help Next Chapter provided. Ed, Sharon and Judy took the key from me and then turned the house into a showcase for my aunt’s things. They treated everything with respect, and spent the time I didn’t have to coordinate the sale. It was especially helpful that they took time to determine what everything was worth, and found some surprising pieces along the way.

Good news is that the house is now on the market, and my aunt’s things have found a good home. She would be pleased.”
Rick in Mayodan, NCApril 2016
The Next Chapter team made a difficult task so easy for us. We had decided to sell everything in our house near Wrightsville Beach as we prepared to tear it down and build a new permanent residence for us. Being that we live several hours away from the house, we needed a turn-key service that would handle everything for us. We knew the difficult part was selling actual pieces of the house, from windows and doors to even bushes in the yard.

Ed and his team at Next Chapter worked tirelessly before, during and after the sale to make sure our goals were achieved. They stayed in touch throughout the process to be sure we were happy with the process. Their can-do attitude made the sale a positive experience for everyone involved, especially the customers who shopped the sale. We look forward to working with Next Chapter again soon.
