We provide estate and moving sales in the North Texas area and work with executors, heirs, estate attorneys, CPAs and bank trust officers to sell estates. We conduct estate sales in the home and are able to sell not just the contents (personal property), but the real estate as well. Proprietor Lorrie Semler is a licensed real estate agent in Texas.

The decision to sell or downsize one's personal property may be necessitated by retirement, relocation, divorce, or the combining of two households. If you are the executor of an estate, you may be responsible for disposal of the contents of a relative's home. Whatever the situation, you may be overwhelmed by the decisions you face. We are professional appraisers and liquidators of personal property, specializing in antiques, collectibles, decorative arts, and residential contents.

Headquartered in the Dallas, Texas area, we serve businesses, professionals, and the general public in North Texas. As a member in the International Society of Appraisers, and as a former member of the Appraisers Association of America and the National Auctioneers Association, Lorrie adheres to the Code of Ethics of these organizations.
