Chris and Terri Dickson own and operate Blue Moon Estate Sales of the Triad, providing estate sale services for Greensboro and the surrounding area. The couple discovered Blue Moon Estate Sales when they had to move to Greensboro to take care of Chris’ aging father. They needed to downsize to make the move, so they hired Blue Moon out of Raleigh to handle their estate sale. They were so pleased with the service that the Dicksons became Blue Moon’s first franchisee and set up shop in Greensboro. The parent company has gone on to establish numerous franchises and has been featured in Forbes and on Realtor.com.
Blue Moon offers comprehensive services for customers who need to decrease their belongings because of divorce, debt, death and downsizing (the four “D’s”). The team members at Blue Moon are experts in estate sales, but they also understand the sensitive nature of situations like the four D’s. The Dicksons in particular know how emotional it can be to sort through sentimental items and decide what to keep, and what to let go. Whether it’s the possessions of a loved one that has passed away or simply the need to downsize, easing the personal burden of making these tough decisions is an integral part of the company’s philosophy.
The team at Blue Moon handles estate sales with a method designed to generate the most profitable sales with respect for each customer’s unique situation. The process begins with a free consultation, and there are no upfront costs because Blue Moon operates on commissions. Once a client decides to work with Blue Moon, the company schedules a time to view estate items and introduce their staff. Customers are guided step-by-step through the process of determining what will be included in the sale. Blue Moon will review the terms and commission structure, set a date for the sale and finalize the contract.
From this point, Blue Moon handles all the details. Photographs are taken for the advertising campaign, items are priced and staged, and all the other details are taken care of to prepare for the sale. Once the sale is completed, customers receive the proceeds in five to seven days.
In addition to conducting estate sales, Blue Moon works with a network of real estate professionals and other local businesses to provide additional services that customers may need. Whether it’s the sale of a home or a need for cleaning services, Blue Moon can recommend reputable companies in the area to meet customers’ needs.
