“The thought of a bunch of folks rummaging through my mother’s lifetime accumulation of possessions made me queasy! But, after meeting with Dee Lause, I knew I had found someone who would treat my mother’s things with the respect and care that they deserved. Dee and her crew were highly organized–separating, decorating, and staging items to create a “style and look” that my late mother would have been truly proud of. I was also relieved to discover that Dee was not going to just “give” everything away! I was impressed with the research she did to find the right price point for items–high enough to reflect their true worth, yet also affordable. In the end, the proceeds from the estate sale exceeded our expectations! Dee is a pleasure to work with–in addition to being a very sharp business woman! I highly recommend Dee and her team to work with. “Mona O
Dee, You are an amazing lady! Van and I were in awe when we walked through the house today. It was the most incredible scene we could have imagined, You have organized three decades of our lives in and interesting way. We keep wondering where all these things were hidden for years and maybe forgotten about.
Thank you for taking your time to help make some sense of all these things. We could never have had the time, energy or expertise to do what you have done in just a couple of weeks.
We have had some great adventures, travel and experiences but know it is time to let the past go and move on to new things. We appreciate your hours of effort to help us turn the page to the future. You are a special person.
Thank you for all you have done for us.”
“Dee, thank you so much for the Estate Sale you did for me on the 7th, 8th and 9th of June this year. You and your staff made it so easy for me. You are such professionals and did an outstanding job. I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks Again.”
Ada M. Crilly and family
“Dee, you by far have the best quality and organized Estate sales that my husband Marc and I have ever been to! We are customers for life!!!! Thank you!!!”
Marc and Mary Jane Veirs
“I just wanted to let you know that I had a great experience at the estate sale this past weekend. This was the first one I’ve attended. I like how you set everything up…very presentable and organized. I also loved everything I purchased there. I really appreciated all of your help and patience.
Thanks so much again Dee, you and your staff are great.”
“Our parents had accumulated a life-time’s worth of everything and filled the house they lived in for more than 40 years. When our father passed way at 93 the idea of emptying the house seemed overwhelming to us. Although Estate Sales by Dee came highly recommended, we also interviewed another estate sale company just in case. The other company wouldn’t even take the job but Dee saw the true value in their belongings. Faster than we thought possible, Dee and her crew had organized the house’s contents, produced a highly successful sale and emptied the house. They took care of every detail of the sale and made the process stress and worry free for us. Dee even worked with our realtor to speed the process of getting the house on the market. We were delighted by Dee’s handling of the sale from beginning to end and it’s clear to us that no job is too large for Dee and her experienced staff. We give Estate Sales By Dee our highest recommendation without any hesitation or reservations.”

“I have known Dee for over 20 years and recommend her and her capable staff highly. Her professionalism, incredible care to detail, superior knowledge of pricing of fine valuables or everyday house-hold goods rank her as top in the Inland Empire. In my real estate business I need someone I can trust to take care of my clients, be sensitive to their needs, maximize their profits and take care of every nuance of the sale; from the actual sale to handing over a house clean and ready to put on the market. Her Team delivers just that …. with a smile!”

“Thank you for all of your assistance with the estate we just closed yesterday, after only three days on the market and a two week escrow! I appreciate being able to refer my clients to you. They were very happy with your Estate Sale Service; and knowing that my clients are in caring hands is truly priceless. Thank you for making me look good with your outstanding service.
I hope we can work together again in the future.”
WESTCOE Realtors, Inc
“Thank you for your help during my whirlwind move. I don’t know how I could have done it without you and your professional staff. Sold my stuff as if it was your own, organized needed repairs, hired the best-ever home cleaning team and then handed the keys off to the realtor. A huge amount of stress lifted from my shoulders, and all done in a crazy, short time- frame. I highly recommend Estate Sales by Dee to anyone looking for a professional, courteous, kind and efficient estate sale company.”
“The success of our estate sale can only be attributed to Dee’s marketing expertise, organizational skills, and attention to detail, her incredible work ethic and her warm and friendly personality. She and her professional, hardworking team were most efficient and very creative in setting up our items for sale. Dee’s extensive mailing list drew in buyers beyond the local area.
Dee was helpful in recommending local charities to donate items to and arranged for final pick up the day after. She was very timely in providing final detailed inventory along with all the proceeds.
We highly recommend Dee to conduct your sale because of her competency, trustworthiness, and ability to obtain the best returns on your items.”
Ann and Dayton, satisfied customers
“I recently sold my condo and Dee Lause did an Estate Sale for me which was truly a success. I would highly recommend her. She and her staff are really professional and do such a terrific job. They price everything and arrange furniture and everything for sale so artfully that it contributes to the success of the sale. After the sale they contribute what doesn’t sell, if anything is left unsold, to the charity of your choice. Then Dee prints out the sale of each item and what it sold for and gives you a complete detail and cash for some, thus total satisfaction.”
Ada and Family (92 year old customer)
“Estate Sales by Dee knew the details of each sale, list of what was sold and for how much, security was solid, sale was very organized, each person knew exactly what to do. Very impressed! Efficient and professional!”
“Dee Lause evaluated all our items for an estate sale, priced everything, organized it, ran ads, hired helpers, manned a 3-day sale, and cleaned up! It was almost painless and we made much more money than we thought. Very impressive! Dee Lause organized and ran the estate sale for me from start to finish. She is professional, detail-oriented, and does not leave loose ends. Consultation was free and we didn’t pay a penny; her fee came out of any profits. And there was a lot of profit!”
“Just wanted to say that the estate sale you had in Yucaipa was awesome! My mom, sisters, friends and I had a great time searching for treasures. I bought a truck load home with me. You and your team did a great job. I am looking forward to the next sale!”
Aimee – Riverside
“We had a short sale which went well. We lost our home and Dee made the best of a really bad situation. We couldn’t have begun to get through it without her. Little or big sale, she is the best. Thank you for helping our family.”
Ralph – Riverside
“Thank you Dee for your professional estate sale. Your years of running stores made my family’s collectables, antiques, books and furniture look great. You cleaned and displayed items as if it was a model home on display. Your staff are well trained in excellent customer service and I could see that everyone enjoyed the sale. You ended up selling most of the contents of a big and beautiful home. Thank you Dee.”
Dina – Riverside
“Dee and her staff did an outstanding job selling the household items at my sister’s estate. Our family was consumed in the death and could not go through every item in the home and decide where it should go. She took over and handled all the details of the sale; cleaning, organizing, pricing, visual display, advertising and provided adequate staff and security. She relieved the stress we would have gone through worrying about 40 years worth of treasures. I thank Dee and her staff.”
Charlotte – Riverside
“I would like to recommend Dee Lause to anyone needing to arrange an estate sale. She is very caring and is so anxious to do what you need. She and her staff are very respectful and interested in their job. She has even been known to mail items to a family that was overlooked after they have left the premises in her capable hands. I do not feel a more capable and trusting person can be found.”
