To Whom It May Concern:Joe KrummApril 2017
I traveled to my hometown of Fargo, ND in early February of 2017 in order to assist my
mother whom was being released from the hospital after breaking her hip the
previous month. My father had passed away over 18 months earlier so as she returned to her
home and began the long process of physical therapy, it quickly became apparent that the
time, money and upkeep associated with a 1225 square foot house was becoming
unmanageable for her. She decided it was time to move to an assisted living facility in town
and finally move out of the home that she and my father had shared for over 30 years.
My mother had always been a meticulous housekeeper but over the course of time, her
home had become filled with not only many memories but a wide assortment of furniture and
assorted items obtained over the years from family, friends, and numerous antique sales.
Knowing I would never be able to set up and conduct a proper sale of the entire household
contents myself, I began searching for a viable Estate Sale company in the Fargo area. I was
initially able to sign a contract with what at first appeared to be an experienced and
knowledgeable person but who ultimately ended up demonstrating not only very poor
communication skills, but in the end did not follow through with me in conducting the sale on
the agreed upon date.
I next turned to Detailed Home Solutions and its owner, Ingrid Olson. I was in a bit of a panic
when first contacting her as it was less than two weeks from the dates I wanted to conduct the
sale, but Ingrid quickly put me at ease. She toured my mother’s house and calmly estimated
the time and work necessary to prepare for the sale. Her considerable organizational and
time management skills quickly became apparent as that same day, she went right to work
cleaning out closets and cupboards throughout the house. For the next twelve days, Ingrid
and her team worked diligently in preparing the house and garage. Many days they were in
the house until midnight or later. When the Friday before the day of the sale arrived, they had
successfully transformed my mother’s property into an expansive display of attractively
positioned household goods. In addition, Ingrid applied an aggressive marketing campaign
encompassing local print ads, social media ads, and a literal blanket of signs and flyers in
Fargo itself. I was impressed with her effort and attention to detail.
The sale was a great success, directly due to the hard work and dedication of Detailed Home
Solutions. Ingrid quickly gained my total trust and confidence in the handling and sale of my
mother’s goods and I’m convinced that it would have been a mistake on my part to go with
any other company. Ingrid Olson’s integrity, professionalism, and experience was invaluable
to our family throughout this evolution. I would strongly recommend Ingrid Olson and Detailed Home
Solutions to anyone in need of a professional Estate Sale service.

It is a true pleasure to write this recommendation letter for Ingrid Olson, in regards to handling
our moving sale of household items in a truly fair, equitable, professional, and efficient process.
I can state with confidence that she is a motivated and diligent person who has a high degree of
integrity. From start to finish, she was there. As such, I can say she would be an excellent
choice to handle any type of estate sale, or simply help in the process of liquidating and
downsizing, while managing to maximize the best possible return for you.
I was put in contact with Ingrid through local real estate agent Sharon Hilgers, who gave a very
high recommendation on her services. Sharon convinced me after hearing how many
customers were pleased at the final results of working with Ingrid on anything home related. I
was looking for someone that needed very little supervision and guidance when trying to sell a
number of household items in my home. I was in the process of downsizing and moving.
Because of this I was needing to sell a number of items from my home, but I didn't have the time
to be involved in getting this taken care of. I told Ingrid my expectations, and she followed
through in getting this completed. She was consciences throughout the whole process, and
made it easy for me in achieving the goal I was looking for.
I therefore offer my recommendation of Ingrid Olson without reservation.
To Whom This May Concern, Sharon HilgersOctober 2015
This letter is written with regard to giving Ingrid Olson a recommendation.
I have known Ingrid for 20 years... I first met her and her husband when they moved their family to the Fargo/Moorhead area...I was their real estate agent.
Now that her children are older, Ingrid has started a business of organizing people's homes and guiding them in selling their possessions.... Ingrid has done everything from organizing and setting up estate sales, to coordinating the moving of furniture, to the very important cleaning of the property and disposing of items that didn't sell. She sees it through from start to finish.
The qualities that I appreciate in Ingrid are many....first of all, Ingrid treats each project as if they were her own possessions she is dealing with... she exhibits great care.
Ingrid has incredible people skills in dealing with home owners and their families. She is very conscientious.
Another positive characteristic with Ingrid is.... if she is unsure of the pricing of any items, such as antiques, she will seek out other professionals for guidance.
Without hesitation, I would recommend the services of Ingrid Olson.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I as a customer of many estate sales, I enjoy going to the sales when I find Detailed Home Solutions are the agents. They do an excellent job of pricing the items, and at a price you want it now not later. The style of how the items are laid out makes you feel like you are shopping in a store. Items are all very clean. I love going to their sales and I have hear it from a few different people while standing in line waiting for the doors to open.

To whom it may concern: I am writing this review both to thank Ingrid Olson and to praise her for her professionalism and efficiency in helping us to liquidate my Fathers-in-law belongings. In April, 2019 he was moved to hospice and we were left to liquidate his belongings. Since his family was nowhere near the Fargo area (San Deigo and Orlando) we has to rely on a local company to do the job for us. We chose Ingrid and are extremely glad we did. From the very beginning, she took charge and made the sale happen in a timely manner. From setup to cleanup, it was handled by her and her crew with dedication and professionalism. Anyone looking for a reputable company can do no better than Detailed Home Solutions and Ingrid. Thank you so very much. Warren and Laura Pommier April, 2020

Our situation was somewhat unique - we sold a home in Arizona and needed to dispose of the furnishings in our Fargo house in order to use those Arizona items. I contacted Ingrid and she met with me to see if this was doable, as we would remain living in our house. We made it work!!
The work that Ingrid did was nothing short of phenomenal. She proved to be a master of staging items, making them attractive and so appealing! An example would be tying up quilts I had made with coordinating grosgrain ribbon. That was an extra added touch that made them look so nice. The sale didn’t feel like you were at a hastily thrown together garage sale, but rather shopping in a store!
Her years of experience in this business proved to be a real asset as she is very organized, has the necessary equipment to conduct the sale efficiently, knows how to research the current selling prices of items and makes the sale extra special in many ways. I also felt she was completely trustworthy, a key characteristic in this business. She goes above and beyond to make the sale successful. I couldn’t have been more pleased with Detailed Home Solutions and would not hesitate to highly recommend them!!

Best estate sale in the area by far! Honesty, integrity and ethics are values that Ingrid holds high at the forefront of Detailed Home Solutions.
There are always quality, unique and interesting items to choose from at a Detailed Home Solutions sale! Ingrid makes it easy with top notch advertising and always hundreds of quality pictures to preview online before each of her sales. She and her courteous staff always go the extra mile and do a wonderful job of cleaning, polishing and staging all sale items. The china and crystal always sparkle! From artwork and furniture to jewelry, clothing and electronics and sometimes an occasional vehicle are all on offer at a Detailed Home Solutions sale. One never knows what one may find!
It is always an exciting, friendly, high energy and light hearted atmosphere! She also has a bid box for certain items to add to the fun and excitement. Ingrid and her knowledgeable staff are always helpful and do an excellent job of answering any questions one may have at her sales.
Helpful, attentive and friendly service. Lightning fast checkout with all forms of payment accepted. Quality and unique items to choose from and complementary tasty cookies and bottled water for her customers! What more could one ask for in an estate sale? GO! You won't be disappointed!
Very good deals in N. Fargo on 2nd day of sale. Confusion at the till led to them returning some $$ I had been charged. Very honest, thanks!Charles JordanNovember 2018
Thanks to Ingrid Olson and her team at Detailed Home Solutions, my mother's home of 65 years was sorted, organized and items sold at a weekend estate sale. Ingrid was dedicated even after the sale to find buyers for some of the remaining items. It was an enormous job and they were up to the task. Many thanks for the help and guidance in this milestone change in our family. Lori SudduthLori Suddith September 2018
Ingrid and her team did an amazing job preparing my mother-in-law’s living estate sale a year ago. She does work that most property owners and their families are simply not capable of doing. Ingrid’s estate sales that I have attended are very professionally done. EVERY item is priced, which makes shopping simple and fun for her customers. She thinks of everything! And even more interesting, Ingrid and her team obviously enjoy their work!!Joanne KlevMay 2018

Thanks Ingrid and Staff!
This spring we needed to move my mom into an assisted living facility. We planned on donating what she couldn't take and what us kids didn't want. Our realtor gave us Ingrid 's number. After meeting her for the first time, I was impressed. That was a VERY rough time on my mom and Ingrid handled it very well. Alot of the stuff left had alot of sentemental value to my mom but wouldn't sell for much. Ingrid was very aware of my mom's feelings and it a great job explaining what to expect and why. We all decided on a sale date that worked for all of us, she gave us an estimate of what she thought the sale would bring. Then she did her thing, had the sale and made more than she established. My mom was very happy. If I ever need or know of anyone who needs a living estate sale, I will definitely call Ingrid again.Rick ZerrApril 2017
Thank you Ingrid, Brian, and others from Detailed Home Solutions!Julie Pallasch DeVahlSeptember 2018
Detailed home would be the only company I'd use if I have a sale. They published it very well. They take the time to tie up sets with pretty ribbons. Wash every dish before display ECT...Julie Merling-Saatoff September 2017

***** 5 stars from our family
Saturday, September 23 we went an Estate Sale produced by Detailed Home Solutions. We picked up our large purchase today, Monday, September 25.Bestie DemaraisSeptember 2017
Their sale has 5 Star prices. We bought more for than we planned.( We always seem to do this).
I knew what I would be interested in seeing from the many pictures on the sale site.
If I had been there less than 10 minutes earlier I would have got the crock pot.
I look forward to the next sale in October.
The sales are well thought out with respect to the homeowners property. Prices more than fair.courteous and helpful staff.The contents are clean and thoughtfully displayed.Nanceanne SchlosserApril 2019
Me and my wife, loves going to this sales, the staff that puts on the sale, does a GREAT JOB!!!Joseph ThunstromMarch 2020
You do great work! You are very organized!Karla French BakerJune 2018
Was a bit disappointed in the 50% off sale. When I checked out, the gal at the till did not give me 50% off of all my items, nothing I purchased was excluded from the sale. I recounted it myself 3 different times. I was overcharged by about 5 dollars, not a big deal, I didn't bother going back inside to clear it up. I just think if the company is going to advertise everything as 50% off then they should honor that...still happy with my items though. Because of the fantastic response, I changed my rating. :) 5 stars Karen FrostMay 2018
