"We were impressed with Dee and her team. Terry, Patti, and Jack all made this difficult transition much easier with their professionalism, care and compassion. We were very pleased with how nicely they staged the home."

I recently decided to have a sale-moving three homes and two barns into one home. Black Derby met with me right away, were timely and professional. We proceeded, and the set-up, merchandising, the sale itself and clean-up were all top notch. There was not a single solitary thing that fell through the cracks! Then the outcomes-I made triple my expectation on profit but an added bonus was how they left my property-cleaner than what they found it! I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were-exceeding all expectations! I would highly recommend that you use Black Derby if you are considering an estate sale! You definitely will not regret the choice.

"My mother and I are so glad we chose Black Derby for her estate sale. Everything from start to finish went smoothly. We had used a well-known company for my mother-in-law's estate sale, and Black Derby was so much better. Thank you to everyone involved with Black Derby."

Thank you, Dee, Terry & staff for a remarkable estate sale at my mother's home in Milton Estates. My mother had lived there 45 years. She was a very crafty lady and had filled up most places in that big house over the years with kitting, sewing, ceramics and other materials. Your people did an amazing job of organizing and displaying everything. Afterwards the house was swept and cleaned. I would highly recommend Black Derby. The professionalism and caring approach was exceptional.

Black Derby runs the cleanest, best staged sales. The employees are so friendly and seem to truly love what they do. I always look for sales being run by Black Derby and will always attend theirs first.

I wanted to take a moment and compliment and recommend Black Derby Estate Sales. I have not only attended several of their sales, but they also handled the "estate sale" for our mother's property after her passing this past year. Terry, Dee and the entire Black Derby staff were always helpful, courteous and non-intrusive. They display the utmost in professionalism throughout the entire process - from the initial review, set up, and preparation through the actual sale. Their sales are professionally conducted and choreographed to ensure that the items for sale are on display and readily accessible. I highly recommend Black Derby Estate Sales. They will make even a difficult time a little bit easier.

Thank you! As requested, I stayed away from the sale, but I did have the opportunity to see the set up on Thursday evening. It was wonderful! It felt more like a boutique than an estate sale. I have had several people tell me how much better things were displayed than at other sales that I've regularly attended. I am very happy and will highly recommend your services to others.

Black Derby is well on the way to being the "Hallmark" in estate sale companies in Missouri. Not only has my personal experience rated all "5's" but the comments from attendees and buyers of my sale have been expressed in glowing terms. Thank you for an experience and job well done!

If you’re moving or helping your parents with their Estate Sale and don’t know where to begin your search for someone to sell your stuff, look no further. Black Derby Estate Sales is the company you need to hire. That’s only if you’re looking for someone who will take control of all aspects, from start to finish – Dee Parker and her Staff at Black Derby Estate Sales will do it all…and you will be 100% satisfied! Their professionalism; their timeliness; their work ethic; their attention to detail in staging items for sale in your home, internet listing of items, scheduling pickup of all sold items & items donated to charitable organization(s). When all items were gone, the carpets were vacuumed, floors were swept, and even my 3-car garage was clean. I received a check for the sale proceeds in a timely fashion; along with a spreadsheet showing the description of items donated and their dollar value—an important document for our Tax Return. My husband & I feel very fortunate that we found Black Derby Estate Sales. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Dee Parker and her Staff. They do it all and you will not lift a finger in the entire process!

Black Derby was professional, pleasant and easy to work with. To be honest, at first I thought their rate was high, but upon looking at the results of the sale AND the amazing clean up job they did, I have decided they were worth much more than they get. Good job Black Derby!

The Staff at Black Derby Estate Sales are beyond compare.
