We understand that moving, downsizing, and especially settling a loved one's estate is a large undertaking. Sorting a lifetime of belongings can be an emotional process and trying to determine each item's realistic value is very overwhelming.
We are Pat Peters and Justin Peters (mother and son), owners of
Wiregrass Estate Sales, and we would be honored to help you
through this process. We have served the tri-state area with
estate sale services since 2001, hosting over 200 successful estate sales.
Professionalism is our utmost goal, handling each estate as if
it belonged to one of our own family members.
Allow us to meet with you, free of charge, to help you determine the best way to handle your estate. You have several options including a full estate sale, a clean-out sale with disposal services, and we now offer the option for your items to be consigned to our estate sale store in Downtown Enterprise, AL.
We handle EVERYTHING, from organizing & selling a home's contents to cleaning, staging, pricing, hosting the sale and getting the home ready to sell. If you do not already have a realtor, Justin is a realtor with James Grant Century 21 and can assist with selling the house itself. It is our job to ease your mind and make this process as simple as possible.
Remember that it has taken a lifetime for your family to create this estate. We urge you to do your homework and make an informed decision when hiring a company to handle your possessions. Whether you choose us or decide on another company, please hire licensed, insured and experienced professionals with references.
Do not let a lower commission cloud your judgment. Having a certified appraiser determining the value of your items is paramount. You may be surprised to find that a piece of costume jewelry or an unassuming vase could be more valuable than an entire dining room suite. It is also important to be able to view detailed photos of the items for sale at your estate sale, and for there to be a consistent & strictly enforced set of rules for those attending the sale.
When the dust settles, a truly professional & experienced company will provide a hassle and worry free experience and net you a higher return in the end.
