"I would recommend Cheryl Cockrell to anyone wishing to close an estate or downsize their household. I lived out of Lafayette, when it came time to deal with my Mother's Estate. Cheryl made the process easy. My brother and I had thought we had removed all of our family memento's, but Cheryl recognized my mother's baby clothes which were in a paper bag in one of the closets and saved them for us. I cannot say enough good things about Cheryl. She is a gift, in the form of peace of mind; Dependable, Honest, Caring, and Friendly." ~Jim Wintle

"I really enjoyed working with Mrs. Cockrell. After my father's passing, her assistance and guidance was a blessing in a very difficult time. I lived several hours away from my father's home, but was able to put the preparation and planning of the estate sale in her hands, thus saving me hours of traveling back and forth to his home. She is always helpful, respectful, and professional. I am still amazed at how quickly she was able to pull-off (what I considered to be) an exhausting, strenuous task both successfully and in such a small period of time. I would highly recommend her services to others, and I will not hesitate in calling her again if I ever needed to." ~Bradley Bennett
"From the moment we met Cheryl Cockrell, my wife Maggie and I knew that Cheryl could help us sell the many items that my mother and father had spent a lifetime collecting. She was courteous and kind to both of us as we progressed through this difficult task and was very knowledgeable about the value of the things and the timing of the actual estate sale. We can't imagine going through this process without her. For your peace of mind during an estate sale we highly recommend the services of Cheryl Cockrell." ~Frank and Maggie Thibeaux

Cheryl Cockrell Estate Sales is the best! Thanks Cheryl for helping us in more ways than we even asked for. I would highly recommend Cheryl for anyone's estate sale. She is professional and a joy to work with and makes what can be a hard process "flow like a river".
Lynn and Bobby Weldon
When we decided to move into an RV and travel this spring of 2011, we searched Acadiana to find someone we could trust to handle the sale of all of our belongings. Cheryl Cockrell was that woman. She was a delight to work with from the first visit and we felt immediately at ease with her and we trusted that she had our best interests at heart. She did everything she promised, stayed in close contact with us throught the process, and all with good humor and efficiency. I feel she made good prices on the sale of our belongings and Cheryl's commission was fair and she was worth every penny of that commission! She helped us not to have to sweat the small stuff (or the big stuff) of selling our stuff.
Ross and Robin Judice
MY HUSBAND AND I REALLY ENJOY SHOPPING AT CHERYL'S ESTATE SALES. THERE IS ALWAYS AN INTERESTING MIX OF THINGS AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TREASURES YOU WILL FIND. I FOUND CHERYL AND HER STAFF VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DOWNSIZING AND DUE TO OUR POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WITH CHERYL, WE WILL CERTAINLY USE HER SERVICES WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR US TO SELL.
We were so pleased with the way that Cheryl handled our mother's estate. She is very professional yet compassionate and is eager to please her clients, and has the background and experience to know the value of items to make them sell. I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with an estate, moving, or downsizing sale.

The task of clearing out the excess from my mother's home was of monumental proportions. The family was overwhelmed until we contacted Cheryl. She put us at ease and assured us it was doable. Being true to her word, she and her team worked tirelessly to clean out, sort, price, and sell. Cheryl had such an upbeat attitude despite the summer heat and the lengthy preparation for the sales. Cheryl was also kind enough to include some of my father-in-law's items in the sales. One valuable lesson we learned was don't have garage sales or throw anything away, but call Cheryl first. She knows the difference between trash and treasure, the current value of items, and how to get the best returns for her clients. - George Youngblood
I had a client whose parent was relocating to another city and selling almost everything that she owned.
During this stressful time, it was so reassuring to recommend Cheryl Cockrell as someone who would help them through
the transition time by hosting an estate sale. The client was delighted with the results, and offered great praise about
Cheryl's tremendous work ethic and helpful attitude. I'd highly recommend Cheryl for your estate sale needs, or that of
anyone you know who has need of a successful estate sale!!!! Flo Meadows Realtor
Working with Cheryl is such a joy. She walks her clients through each step of the estate sale process with patience, understanding, and great expertise. There is no doubt that she has her client's best interest in mind at every point. Her easy and personable manner turns what could be a difficult experience into a delight! She truly enjoys what she does, and you can't help but smile when you are with her. Cheryl makes you feel like more than a valued client, but a friend, as well. I never believed my things were worth what they were. Thank you, Cheryl, for making this experience one sweet and final cherished memory of my home.
Earns your respect and trust, exceeds your expectations.
My wife and I had only a partially furnished second home that we sold recently. Cheryl did not do the typical open house, but spent hours taking pictures, posting on her site and meeting interested buyers at our home. She is very knowledgeable, thorough and caring. We evan had a home maintenance issue while we were out of town. Cheryl's team met our repairman to let him in the home and fix the problem. This is truly above and beyond our expectations.
My wife and I recommend Cheryl without hesitation. On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd give her a 12.
I was so pleased with the way that Cheryl handled our mother's estate. She is very professional and has the experience needed to price items to make them sell. I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with an estate sale.

I couldn't have emptied my aunt's house alone without your help. I don't know how I would have disposed of all of the contents on my own being a single mom. You've been so great to work with and ALWAYS accessible. Thanks again---Cheryl Harper

"Preparing for an estate sale can be an emotional process. Sensitive to our feelings Cheryl Cockrell eliminated our uneasiness with her straightforwardness, efficiency and humor. She met all our expectations and more."

After holding my mother's estate sale, I think that Cheryl Cockrell should add a third "C" to her initials for Concientious! David Wormser
My Mother's house was filled with many unique and valuable items. She organized the valuables in the house, looked up the value and priced them for sale with energy and enthusiasm. Cheryl identified many items that had more value than we thought! Her motto of not wanting anything bought at one of her estate sale houses showing up on the "Antique Road Show" that had been bought too cheaply from her estate sale, brought us a good measure of comfort. Sit back and let Cheryl take over.
John H. Wormser
Cheryl delivered everything we hoped--met the deadlines, researched things we didn't even know had good value and sold them on e-bay across the country for an attractive price, sold almost every item in the estate sale at our house, and cleaned up all traces of the sale. She worked long and hard in advance to achieve a very attractive display of our things, on which we received compliments. We didn't have to be present and had peace of mind throughout the process, as Cheryl kept us up to date daily. Cheryl is a true professional.
Richard and Thetis Cusimano
"Cheryl and her team did and outstanding job with the amount of stuff we had. She was a great help with the items we had that we didn’t know what to do with. They went above and beyond the call of duty for what we handed her!”
Rebecca Wells Harvey
"I live out of out town and my parents moved to Arizona leaving behind a house full of furniture, art, books, tools, dining and kitchenware, and various things from living in a house in Lafayette for almost 50 years. Cheryl’s help was invaluable. She has a keen eye for collector’s and specialty items. Prior to the estate sale, Cheryl sent a notice to her following of collectors and estate sale shoppers and posted several pictures online. The Cockrell Estate Sales team also spent a significant amount of time organizing, arranging and staging items at my parents’ house. Her efforts resulted in a well attended and managed estate sale. The sales revenue far exceeded our expectations. Bottom Line – I highly recommend Cockrell Estate Sales.
Karen L. Jones"
Thanks for doing such a great job in completing the estate sale of my mother’s belongings. You did everything you promised, and left me with a clean and empty home ready to sell. I particularly appreciated your multiple pronged approach for maximizing net proceeds through internet sales on Ebay, etc. in addition to the estate sale itself. And you didn’t stop until all was liquidated. You were candid in describing the challenges of an estate sale in order to enlist my cooperation in meeting the final objectives of disposing of the assets. You were professional throughout, and honest in your communications and actions. The net proceeds exceeded my expectations. I would recommend you to anyone needing your services.
I would highly recommend Cheryl Cockrell and her crew if you are thinking of having an estate sale. Cheryl was referred to us through some local antique dealers, and I found out she was an old friend I hadn't seen for years. She took all of the stress out of it for us, she got in the house, sorted out everything and arranged it in a very appealing way. From the start, she took advantage of all her contacts through email and other resources and starting selling right away. Believe me, this lady can sell anything. She even sold the rocks out of our rock garden!
If you are hesitant to hire anyone, let me set your mind at ease.. Cheryl is wonderful to work with, and a real joy. She sold almost twice the amount she projected.. If you want to contact me personally, please do so.. I cannot praise Cheryl enough.
