Donna “Louie” Dumas
For more than three decades, “Louie” developed the skills that led to her highly successful venture into the estate sales arena. It started at a video firm in Cleveland where she produced video inventories of personal property in order to provide documentation and appraisal services for homeowners. Later, in Chicago, she was a Marketing Consultant for CBS Radio. Then, moving to Detroit, she established her own company, Target Marketing, specializing in marketing campaigns aimed at Baby Boomers. Steeped in the knowledge of the needs of this market segment, it was a natural progression for her to move into estate sales. Today, Team Louie has the savvy and expertise to assist Baby Boomers who are seeking to downsize and/or liquidate the estates of their aging or deceased parents.
Bob has been buying and selling antiques, collectibles, and merchandise for more than 25 years. From his travels to antique shows throughout the United States, he has gained an extensive knowledge of antique jewelry, crystal, glassware, and pottery. Bob has studied at the Gemological Institute of America and has completed courses in diamonds, diamond grading, and gem identification. Over the past 10 years, he has turned his focus toward the estate sale/liquidation business. He is also frequently called in to help authenticate and price items for individuals having sales or auctions.
The rest of Team Louie is comprised of an antiques/collectibles appraiser; several professional household organizers and creative home stagers; and a number of sales professionals whose primary focus is to sell household goods and build customer relations. If you have something different or unique in your estate, be it artwork, sports memorabilia, or whatever, we call on the team member with that particular expertise.
