The task of organizing personal property to maximize its value can seem overwhelming and time consuming. A buyout occurs when a dealer purchases everything in an estate for a wholesale price. If the personal property is located in a storage facility, co-op, condominium or apartment house where estate sales are not permitted, a buyout is a viable option. A buyout should be considered when immediate cash is needed or when the value of the items to be sold is determined to be so marginal that taking the time required to pursue maximizing its value with other options is not cost effective. Our Comprehensive Buyout Service will purchase the personal property which needs to be liquidated and leave the premises broom clean.
A full complement of professional appraisal services is offered and provides our clients with an accurate, impartial and informed value of each item’s true market value.

What Our Clients Say
“Dominion Estate Sales managed a very sensitive sale for our family. Downsizing after an illness, we parted with a large amount of memorabilia, art, jewelry, furniture, books & mementos from a lifetime in public service. The team at Dominion was very kind, supportive and respectful. They provided great guidance, service, security and handled every aspect of the entire process with white gloves and an eye towards privacy. I offer my highest personal recommendation of Dominion Estate Sales.”
Debbi Alexander, Warrenton VA
“Kevin and Karen are fantastic people to work with. My family was in a difficult position, emotionally, physically, and financially. We had to move out of our home of over 40 years in a few short weeks. We referred to Dominion Estate Sales and from the time we met Kevin, we knew we would be in good hands. He showed compassion and empathy for our struggles. Then we met Karen, who is also a caring, competent individual. Together, we were able to gather forces to get the job done, even with inclement weather in the Winter. We would highly recommend Dominion Estate Sales because they do not just see a potential sale for their company, they really care about the people and understand how difficult it was for us to part with our belongings.”
Christiania Chang, McLean VA
“Dominion Estate Sales has been a pleasure to work with. It is a family run business, and they are very accessible and easy to communicate with. Their bookkeeping is clear and concise. They do what they say they’re going to do, in the time frame promised. Both Kevin & Karen attend to details and have made the daunting task of closing out a loved one’s house possible. Highly recommend them!”
Fran Kranich, Strasburg VA
