Appraisals and Estate Sales

We care for your personal property and display it in it's best light!


The first step is to contact us by phone at 713-806-0725 or send us an email at to make an appointment for a consultation to assess the level of need for your personal household or estate.

After we have had an opportunity to review and discuss with you the results of our initial meeting, and agree that our services are best suited to your needs, our contract should be reviewed and signed before we begin any paid services.  Please keep in mind, our fee is based on the proceeds of the sale.  The better YOU do the better WE do.

Compass Rose Estate Sales are held on-site and there are no auctions involved.  

First, we assess and organize. Prior to the estate sale we will process all items included in the sale and determine needs such as cleaning, arranging and display so each item will be seen to its best advantage.   (During this stage of the sale we set aside any personal items that we might find, to be turned over to you for review). 

Second, we go through the entire home and competitively price items based on our knowledge as ISA approved appraisers as well as to the local market.

Next we ADVERTISE.  We utilize customer email lists, social media, pertinent websites and if applicable, local print media.  We provide descriptions, clear images and a personal touch to all of our media outlets.  We want as many potential customers as possible, to be as enthusiastic about attending the sale as we are conducting it.

The next step is THE ACTUAL SALE.  Our main goal is to provide our clients with a professional, streamlined and highly profitable sale.  We only hire individuals that are identifiable, knowledgeable, and friendly to assist potential buyers during each sale.  We accept all forms of major credit cards during the sale to maximize the amount of items sold.  Compass Rose also provides SECURITY to deter theft and item damage, resulting in piece of mind to customers as well as homeowners. 

Lastly, after the sale has concluded we offer support and suggestions for local businesses and charities for any item removal that may be needed.
