In March of 2021 Blue Moon Estate Sales of Rochester, NY began helping families in the Fingerlakes Region who found themselves at a transition point. Whether it be simplifying a lifestyle as the "golden" years approach, coming to terms with the loss of a beloved family member, relocating to be closer to family, or searching for new professional or personal opportunities elsewhere.

Led by owner and operator Chris Merkl, he and his team take pride and place a high value on relieving the stress associated with these periods of transition with compassion, respect, and sensitivity.  The Blue Moon team of Rochester, NY, has a passion for starting, building, and maintaining long-term relationships based on professionally executed end-to-end estate sale services.

Over the last thirty years, Chris has been passionate about helping people, especially those on career paths or those experiencing or working through personal and professional challenges.  His experience and expertise accumulated from diverse retail management settings, business-to-business worksite employee benefits, classroom training, and volunteer work as a peer support counselor for a non-profit compliment the Blue Moon Franchise model perfectly.  Chris is driven to make a significant and positive impact with those he works with and for.

When not running estate sales or meeting with clients, Chris enjoys taking "mini" trips to scenic places.  One of his all-time favorite places is Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada.  With help from close friends around the country, Chris has become an avid collector of sand from beaches all over.  Over the next few years, Chris intends to hone his "point-click-and shoot" photography techniques and take flying lessons.  Family-wise, Chris is a proud father of one daughter and a caretaker for four "inherited" cats on behalf of family members. 

Chris's vision/mission is to grow Blue Moon Estate Sales as Rochester, NY's premier estate sale provider, where previously enjoyed possessions of one family live on to bring joy and happiness to new families.  If and when the time comes that you may need estate sale services, please consider Chris and his team to help guide you through the process.
