Very easy to work with. Recommended Chris to friend who is also moving/ downsizing.
Chris and his team did an AMAZING job with my parent's house! The prep work was INCREDIBLE and the sale was a COMPLETE SUCCESS! Decades of their lives together treated with the utmost respect and made our lives so much easier knowing everything was being taken care of and the house was emptied. Definitely use Destin Estate Sales for your own sale!!!!!!
Chris and the Destin Estate Sales team were awesome. Customer oriented and very easy to work with. We do not live in the area and needed to settle my dad’s estate. Chris was flexible to meet on our schedule when we were in town and provided full service support taking care of the estate sale, donating unsold items, coordinating the removal of the remaining items and trash, and helping to prepare the home to be put on the market. He kept us informed every step of the way and was able to complete everything within 6 weeks of our initial contact. I could not have imagined an easier and more stress free experience. Thanks Chris and the Destin Estate Sales team!
Chris and the Destin Estate Sales team were incredibly helpful with the entire process of sorting, staging and selling the contents of our parents home and preparing the house for showing and sale afterwards. The amount of stress this removed from us is priceless! Great terms as well. I highly recommend them if you need help settling an estate. Thank you SO much Destin Estate Sales!
Chris did an outstanding job with our recent estate sale! He went above and beyond from start to finish. Organized, easy to work with an straight forward. Highly recommend Destin Estate Sales!!
Chris Schaefer and the Destin Estate Sales team are the utmost professionals!
We didn't know what to expect but he did not disappoint. He was efficient and detailed and did everything he said he would do, and with amazing proficiency. He was extremely knowledgeable about pricing. He was attentive about our concerns and kept us in the loop throughout the process. As we are from out of town, he even went as far as going to the department of motor vehicles for us, and dropping off a few items at a consignment store, after the sale! Talk about one-stop shopping, he cleaned everything afterward, had a charity coordinated for pickup of unsold items, and even had pantry items designated for veterans. I can't think of one area that could be improved upon. From the day we hired him, until he sent the final packet to us, he delivered 100 percent. I would not hesitate to use him again and I recommend him without reservation. As someone who doesn't typically give reviews, he has earned the highest praise from us. Well done, Chris!
Going through the process with Chris was nothing short of amazing. He and his team were thoughtful and thorough, organized, knowledgeable, and professional. Thank you for helping us do what seemed to have been impossible. Todd Smith
We had to move our mother from FL to MO unexpectedly due to health reasons. We contacted Chris at Destin Estate Sales. He and his crew made an overwhelmingly stressful situation an effortless experience. He is professional, honest and fair. I simply can not say enough great things about this company. We had contacted other auction services in the area who were rude and very greedy. It is so nice to have done business with Destin Estate Sales. They are very genuine and down to earth. We felt we received a higher return than what was expected. Highly recommend, you won't be sorry.
Chris and his team are just amazing and so professional. They were organized and took care of literally everything. We had to navigate so much from Colorado and Chris was able to get in, get everything set up and get the best price for the entire estate. He also got everything left picked up for donations. I could not have asked for a more seamless or more professional experience. Anyone needing to go through the estate-sale process needs to work with Destin Estate Sales. Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience!!
Chris and team at Destin Estate Sales did a great job handling the sale for my parents. They transformed a very cluttered house into a fantastic showroom! They even found a family heirloom ring and cameo that had been long misplaced, and returned it to us. Steven Jackson
The smoothest and most amazing service from states away! Chris was amazing and beyond accommodating. Thank you so much!!
Our home is in a gated community which allows no estate or garage sales. Destin Estate Sales devised a plan for our estate sale using the internet to show the sale items, and having prospective customers come to inspect by appointment only. Their plan was approved by the Homeowners Association. The ultimate results probably do not compare with a traditional estate sale, but were far better than I expected. I give this company high marks for trying something new, and being successful with it.
I wasn't sure what to expect when Chris walked into my parent's house and was hit head-on with the enormous amount of craft supplies and fabric that had been collected over the years. Chris took on the challenge and he and his team did an amazing job. I felt he and his wife went over and above contacting local quilt guilds and sewing shops to generate the traffic needed to make the sale a success. I was very pleased with the open and constant communication, as well as respect Chris and his team treated the house and belongings. I was sent pictures and updates along this journey. They ensured the neighbors weren't disrupted during the sale days with the traffic and parking. At the end, Chris coordinated the final cleanout of the house and transferring of keys to our realtor. Being out of state, it was vital that I trust and have confidence in Destin Estate Sales. Chris made this difficult process, easy and stress free. I would highly recommend using their services.
The buying process from start to finish was smooth and easy.
Chris was super friendly and helpful!We will definitely keep our eye out for more sales by this company! 10/10 would recommend
Best online Estate Sale we've taken part in for sure. Chris had everything so professionally set from photos to communicating with us about pickup location and times and answering questions we had. Overall great experience! Definitely will look for his sales in the future!
Owner was great, friendly and patient! he waited for me when I was running late to pick up from online sale. prices where also great! Items I purchased online are exact condition as pictured. Happy customer!
Expertly organized and very friendly! Despite how busy the sale was they remembered us by name while we were there and gave us individual attention and service. We will be following their sales in the future for sure
VERY accommodating! Hard working, DEDICATED crew!!! Popular with local estate sale shoppers!
Destin Estate Sales is professional from start to finish. I appreciated that the owner kept me apprised throughout the process, so I knew exactly what to expect and when it would happen. They responded immediately to my initial inquiry and got the job done quickly and efficiently. Thanks for making it easy, Chris and team!!
Chris and his crew are wonderful to work with. They did a magnificent job of setting everything up and running the sale. I could not have been more pleased
Chris and his team did a great job with our sale. Couldn't be happier with the experience.
My wife and I were faced with the daunting task of settling her parents estate after their passing...Frankly, we were overwhelmed with the thought of having to sort through and dispose of all of their accumulated treasures and trash...literally. Through a referral, we reached out to Chris with Destin Estate Sales, he came promptly, assessed the scale of the work and said that he loved a challenge and would jump in and get everything sorted, organized and sell anything that we as a family didn't want to keep. He and his team showed up on the promised day, giving us time to go through the personal effects and separate the heirloom items. We were buoyed by their enthusiasm as they went through everything and were respectful of our parents home. My wife and I both work full-time, and could never have gotten it done with out Chris and his team. We trust them completely and count them as friends...Good people...as the saying goes! They have our respect and gratitude for all they did and the burden they lifted from our shoulders. Thanks again Chris you've definitely earned 5 STARS!!!
Chris was great to work with, very professional. Always answered any questions I might have with quick response. Highly recommended.
I have only positive comments about my experience with Chris and Destin Estate Sales. The entire project was handled extremely well; Chris was available for questions and advice on a situation during a difficult time that I had not much knowledge of. Start to finish it was a win for all included. I will definitely recommend Destin Estate Sales.
Chris and his team run an excellent business. Whenever you see a Destin Estate Sales ad, you know it’s worth the trip to take a look. Mostly larger homes with large collections, perfect for both resellers and collectors. Plenty of staff available to help you find what you are looking for and to keep the lines from getting too long.
Chris was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend this company.
Everything went so smooth!! Chris is so professional and has some great connections for buyers. The sale was PERFECT! Thank you Chris!!
Chris and the crew did a fantastic job on getting my parents place organized and carrying out an Estate Sale. The place was really a mess, especially the garage and they got it organized and squared away. I highly recommend them!
Chris was excellent and professional from start to finish. I had a medical emergency and he handled everything without me having to worry about it. The sale was great and I am very happy with the results. I'd definitely recommend Destin Estate Sales to anyone.
If I could I would give Chris and his team a 10 star review. Every aspect of my Mother's estate sale was top notch! No stone was left unturned. At a difficult time in my life he was there to help, including setup and disposal of unsold items to include hundreds of cookbooks. This is the team!🤩
Chris with Destin Estate Sales earned my absolute highest praise for the way he handled our family’s estate sale when my father passed away in Niceville. I was 800 miles away trying to manage so many things, and the way Chris and his team took control of the whole process, from start to finish, was priceless. His professionalism in setting up and conducting the sale, along with his transparency in the financial details was amazing. Once he was hired he took care of every single step until the home was empty and ready to sell. Thanks so much Chris I give you my highest recommendation!
Chris was exceptional to work with. Even when he was not available he was trying to find other folks to recommend, but in the end he was able to get it done and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help with this Estate Sale. From start to finish, he took care of everything. We will definitely be using him again in the future, and highly recommend you to do the same :)
Chris was so easy to work with, very professional. He made this process so easy for us. If you are looking for someone who works hard for you Chris is it! Lynn Strickland
Chris and his team do a great job from first call to follow up. He has the experience and energy to organize and manage your sale. He also has resources to help with the hard to manage items and clean out afterwards. I was very happy with the results of our sale.
Chris and his team were amazing! Professional from start to finish. He kept me updated on things I needed to know regularly throughout the process. He handled getting the remaining items that did not sale removed from the house which was a big help as I did not live locally. Five star service from start to finish!! Highly recommended!! Charles Burger
It was a pleasure – start to finish – working with Chris and his team. He handled the estate sale for my parents’ Sandestin home which they’d lived in as their primary winter/spring residence for 17 years. The logistics and timetable were challenging for a variety of reasons – at every stage, Chris helped us manage unanticipated challenges with creative problem-solving, generosity and calm that far exceeded our expectations. I especially appreciated Chris’s prompt and clear communications and can recommend Destin Estate Sales without reservation. Thank you, Chris!!
Chris is extremely responsive, professional and trustworthy. He and his team are very organized and did a great job staging and marketing. They made a difficult job look easy! Chris kept us informed every step along the way and communicated well with the real estate agent who was selling my mom's house. What a stress reliever it is to have him handling things!
Chris and his team were professional, efficient, communicated well and conducted a successful sale for us. They did exactly what they promised and provided guidance for us along the way.
Chris and Team are awesome to work with at a time when you need help and expertise. Very Professional and make the process very easy. We live in Chicago and Chris went above and beyond for us given we couldn't be there. They are the best in the business and I highly recommend them! Thank you for everything! M. Lahey
Chris and Becca did a great job of managing our estate sale from beginning to end. Very courteous and professional. During the sale, the house was always very clean and well tended. Advertising was very effective as there was a long line of people waiting to enter the sale on day one. Would highly recommend the team of Chris and Becca to anyone wanting to have an estate sale.
Highly recommend Chris. Was very responsive, professional, personable, and did an incredible job of getting everything sorted and organized. Made everything as easy as possible on our end. 100% would work with again.
I would hire Chris again, they came in were open and honest, completed everything they said they would and so much more. My beloved father had so much, after 6 months or organizing we couldn’t keep up and felt like we weren’t getting anywhere. I called Chris, he contacted me right away and came by to assess the situation. We all knew it was going to be labor intensive but they came and worked hard, got everything organized and ready to sell. They did extensive research on the items to make sure it was priced fairly. Thank you so much Chris and all the staff that helped us to have the estate sale!
Moving and downsizing is a very stressful endeavor, but Chris made it a lot easier. Once we moved out what we were taking, he set up everything that was left behind for the sale. Even after the sale was over, they recommended someone to remove and clean out everything else from the house - even the contents of the refrigerator!!
This team was outstanding....moving is stressful in any situation but knowing that you cannot bring belongings that have meant a lot to you along to the next phase of your life is extra stressful. Chris Schaefer and his team made everything easy--they were incredibly responsive, researched our items, managed the sale, and facilitated the final haul of what was left efficiently and effectively. We got an itemized list of what sold for how much (fascinating...) and made a difficult period as easy as possible. Many thanks--would definitely recommend! Knowledgeable, courteous, and first rate!

My mother went from a 3000sq foot house filled with stuff, to an apartment. We had no idea where to start. We had contacted another company that totally was uninterested in helping and even stood us up to look through the house. At my wits end I found . When I called, I spoke to Kent, who explained the process to me, and told me that he would have his partner contact me within the hour to discuss a time to see the items. In ten minutes I got a phone call from Chris. We immediately set up a time to meet. The rest is history. This company was the most efficient, costly, and professional company that I have come in contact with in a long time. They were compassionate, reasonable, and logical as well. They handled the sale from start to finish and kept in constant contact during the duration. I simply cannot say enough good things about Chris and his professionalism, and the way that this company handled everything. I will be a customer for life, and spread the word to anyone that needs an estate company. If I could give 10 stars I would!!!!
