About Silent Partners Estate Sales

Silent Partners Estate Sales has been recently certified as an Accredited Estate Liquidator by the American Association of Estate Liquidators - we're the only one in the State!!

Death in the Family? Significantly downsizing? Is someone you love moving into assisted living and forced to leave many treasures behind? Are you totally overwhelmed? Need that house full of stuff cleared and clean and ready for the real estate market? Don't know how to start, who to call, or where to turn?

Don't want throngs of strangers going through your house, or the liability of an in-person sale? We will host an online virtual sale for you that maximizes your profit and keeps bottom feeders and "looky lou" types out of your house! We attract the serious, end game buyers who are buying for themselves - not dealers who are looking for 5.00 items to "flip." Also - NO SECOND DAY HALF PRICE with our method. Our prices only go UP - they never go down!!!


From rare antiques and collectibles to Granny's treasures to everyday household "stuff" - if you need to liquidate it and it has any value, we can sell it ALL. We specialize in on-site, professionally run estate sales that turn CHAOS into CASH!

All estate sale companies are NOT created equal, and It is no accident that we are one of the busiest, most trusted, and most successful estate sale companies in the metro New Orleans area. With over 25 successful years in the antiques and collectibles business, we know what your items are realistically worth in an estate sale setting.

What makes us different from all the others? First, we are great at what we do, and it shows. We take pride on putting on a well-run, professional sale that is an upbeat celebration of your loved one's life and the great things he or she left behind. We are professionals who will go "above and beyond" to conduct a quality sale you will be proud of. In short - when you hire us, you get the best.

Here's what we will do for your family:

* We will obtain proper city/parish permits, if required

* Advertise totally at our cost

* Spend the necessary time to organize, clean, price, and research your items;

* Use our professional grade tables, lighting, and fixtures to attractively stage and showcase it all on your site for the greatest profit potential. Our experienced stagers will work their magic and you won't believe how GREAT we can make your house look!

* Bring in our experienced, courteous, paid staff on sale days to assist customers and maintain the security of your property.

* Get the word out to our lengthy contact list and attract the serious buyers - movie & film companies, dealers, and store owners - to your sale, along with the buying public.

* Give you your proceeds no later than the Wednesday after the sale date!

No glorified yard sales here - instead, we have set a new standard of estate sale professionalism in the New Orleans market. We are fully insured and have a clean record with the Better Business Bureau.

Call us for a FREE on-site evaluation before you make your final decision. We will make a no-obligation/no-cost appointment to come to you to view the property and discuss your individual needs, requirements, and deadlines.

We work strictly on commission - we charge a fair, standard percentage of the sale receipts for our knowledge, time, and labor. We have the capability to accept credit cards at our sales so that we can increase your bottom line. Absolutely NO upfront or hidden costs to you!

What People Say About Silent Partners Estate Sales
Silent Partners was very easy to work with. The monumental task of liquidating my Aunt’s estate was overwhelming. They made my life so much easier and relieved me from a lot of stress. They were professional and delivered everything they promised.
5/15/2015
Dianne Volpe
Lynda Moreau was professional, efficient and compassionate in dealing with my family home after the deaths of my parents. Competent and trustworthy.
5/4/2015
Paula Devlin
You all have been the best part about having to sell the house. I really appreciate all that you did. It was great having you handle the sale of the contents. With all of the other problems that seem to be cropping up with regard to the actual sale of the house, it was truly helpful to not have to worry about the liquidation sale.
Sharon Brown, 2014
"Many thanks for the great job you did with our estate sale. You exceeded our expectations! We were very impressed with all stages of the sale, from advance planning to final wrap-up. You took what we saw as a daunting task, and smoothly transformed it into an almost empty house and a nice financial return."
