About Blue Moon Estate Sales

About Blue Moon Estate Sales Franchising - blu072815-032_crop

Deb and Ken Blue founded Blue Moon Estate Sales in 2009. With years of experience in antiques, business and management, this step into full-time entrepreneurship was an excellent opportunity in a very uncertain financial time. The Blues hit the ground running, and Blue Moon rapidly became the most active estate sale company in Raleigh, NC. They soon made plans to optimize their tried-and-true processes and built their business in the form of a reproducible and reliable franchise. This business model would enable others to enter the estate sale industry and enjoy the many benefits of self-employment.
