Client Experiences

Team Louie was an absolute gift to our family in terms of allowing us to get rid of all of my mom's things in a way that honored her, honored the house and honored the items. We've recently had to relocate my mom out to California so we can provide care for her. The hardest part about the move was getting my mom to downsize her things. We didn't expect the process to be so emotional for my mom but it was, and Team Louie had the empathy and understanding to truly help her let go of the things. Team Louie came highly recommended from our realtor as the best estate sale company for our needs that also included getting the house ready to list. I also had the opportunity to talk extensively with Donna the owner of Team Louie, and I knew she understood exactly what we were going through with my mother and her condition.

An estate sale was definitely the way to go for our situation since my mom will be downsizing to a much smaller place and my siblings and I do not feel any connection to the things in the home. My mom had an extensive antique collection as well that required a company with knowledge about how to appropriately price the items. Donna, Bob and the rest of the Team Louie staff were a joy to work with from start to finish. My mom made the decision to work with Team Louie because Bob had expertise in the antiques that my mom collected and they both used to go to the antique markets and even recognized one another! His expertise in collectibles meant everything to us. The other reason we chose Team Louie is they work with a non-profit Freedom Treasures that employs developmentally disabled individuals to run a retail store for the items that do not sell in the estate sale. My father would have appreciated empowering people with disabilities since he worked extensively in universal design and the da Vinci awards affiliated with the national multiple sclerosis society, which had as its heart a focus on empowering individuals with disabilities.

The feedback I received from friends attending the sale was that everything was extremely well organized and that Team Louie had top-notch professionals running the sale. The other services they provided included throwing out the trash from the house in dumpsters and cleaning up the house from top to bottom both before and after the estate sale to get the house ready to list. They were very responsive before, during and after the sale, and I would recommend them in a heartbeat. My sister and I live far away and having a trustworthy service provider to help us manage it all from afar has made the difficult process of downsizing so much easier. We are so grateful to Team Louie.

Team Louie made a very difficult situation very doable! I had the task of emptying my parents' home. Team Louie was there every step of the way. Donna and crew organized, set up, and cleaned up at end. What an amazing team! They were respectful of the home and all their belongings. Found her employees to be very professional, hardworking, friendly, and heard from goers very cordial. What a great sale. This is who you want to do your sale! They are awesome! Thank you for a great experience with Team Louie.

I wanted to let you know about a wonderful experience I had with Donna Dumas and Estate Sales by Team Louie. I had SO much to do in order to settle my mother's estate, but Team Louie made the liquidation of her estate so easy. They staged her entire home, priced everything very fairly, and I am happy to say that most of her things sold! And the staff were so friendly to everyone. Should you be in search of an estate sale company that will fairly get the job done, call Team Louie! Thank you.


I want to tell everyone about my great experience with Team Louie. When I retired and decided to sell my home of 17 years, I knew I needed to downsize, so I contacted Donna Dumas and Estate Sales by Team Louie. WOW - I have to tell you that I had a lot of things I did not want and was seriously going to donate a lot of it, but Team Louie worked with me and got the house all organized and I ended up selling a lot of my things! It was the middle of winter and I was stressed out at the thought of even having a sale, but Team Louie made it a great experience and I ended up with extra money to get some new things for my new home! Many thanks to the Team Louie staff - you are great!! Thank you.

Team Louie is the only estate sale company I will ever recommend. We had almost impossible time constraints, but Donna and her team were positive and helpful. We made more than we thought we would. They even handled the donations pickup and referred a terrific house cleaner. If you have an estate sale, just make one call to Team Louie.

The prices were very fair and good. Wonderful people to deal with. Very professionally done sale. Team Louie is one of the five best estate sale firms in Michigan. They want to move merchandise, fast.


As empty nesters, my husband and I decided to "right-size" into a smaller retirement home. We had so many things to sell, it was overwhelming. But Louie and her team came to the rescue! They did everything. Organizing, staging, pricing, and selling. When it was all said and done, I received a nice check. My sister was so impressed, she recommended Team Louie to her neighbor - who promptly hired them. Thank you, Team Louie!

C. Garland

Thank you and your impressive crew for the wonderful estate sale you held at my late mother's home in Grosse Pointe. You staged it like a tasteful boutique, and put much research to assure that nothing was undervalued. The sale was a huge success and your efforts were so amazing that several people asked, "Who ARE those people that did such a great job?" It was Team Louie.

E. Amine

I was so overwhelmed with the quick sale of my house, I can't believe you came in and emptied the entire contents in five days. Thank you, Team Louie!

S. Langley

You organized and staged my mother's house so well she didn't want to move to her retirement home! The sale was small but profitable. And giving her the nice big check certainly took some of the "sting" out of the move. Thanks, Team Louie.

C. Banks

They're the best estate sale company you'll find in the area! You won't be disappointed if you hire Team Louie.
