Our Story

Since the early 1990s, Chet Nine, owner of Nine Estate Sales has been active in the Kansas City estate sale, auction, & antique markets helping clients liquidate estates & downsize to smaller homes, and helping customers find new & interesting things to add to their collections & inventories.  He believes that both clients & customers should feel respected and should be treated with kindness.  

While studying philosophy & history at  William Jewell College in the early 1990s, Chet began working for a highly respected Kansas City estate sale & antique auction company finding the work a perfect compliment to his educational interests.  He added architecture and literature to his studies while attending an honors program at Oxford University in England in 1994, returning to finish his degree at Jewell in 1995.  The antique world had a bigger draw for him than the academic world, so he stayed full-time with the estate sale & auction company for the next 15 years focusing on estate sale management while gaining invaluable experience in personal property & antique appraisal.  In 2009, Chet launched Nine Estate Sales with the idea that families not only need a professional to sell their things, but also someone to listen to their stories and to laugh with them and to offer guidance through the difficult process of letting things go.   


Chet Nine is a Certified Personal Property Appraiser and a member of the Certified Appraisers Guild of America, and is a licensed auctioneer in the State of Missouri.

Our Clients

I first met Chet when I was Trustee for the estate of a good friend who had recently passed. As it turned out, Chet and I were both graduates of the same college and had many of the same friends, so I was able to ask several of them their opinion. Without exception, they all gave overwhelming endorsements. My experience after the estate sale was exactly the same. Chet and his colleagues are professional, personable, and highly skilled at what they do. The days leading up to the sale moved quickly and efficiently to get things cleaned, priced and organized. Once the sale began, I was exceedingly impressed with the low-key presence they exhibited yet the attention paid to every detail, from online sales, to rearranging items in rooms for greater appeal, and finally arranging the pick up of what is left over. At the conclusion of the sale, the house was empty, the proceeds were exceptionally high, and the fee charged surprisingly reasonable. I cannot say enough about my experience with Nine Estate Sales and would highly recommend Chet and his crew.

A huge THANK YOU to Chet and his very efficient estate sale team! We contacted him to do our sale, explaining to him what we wanted out of our sale, and from that point forward there was nothing for us to do! Everything was tagged and priced before the sale started. In three days our home was empty and clean! In five days we received more than we thought we would have made if trying to do a sale ourselves. The home was spotless, ready for the new buyer. True to his word, efficient and extremely hard working, gets the job done! Would totally recommend his work!
— Marshall & Donna S. / Shawnee, KS
I was totally impressed as well as extremely satisfied with Chet and his handling of my estate sale. As a recent widower having lived in a 3700 square foot house for over 23 years, I had a “full house.” Chet laid out everything, put up additional lighting where necessary, labeled the entire “inventory,” and sold everything from old football cards to top shelf chest-of-drawers and miscellaneous furniture and items, odd to popular. If I ever require the assistance of someone to handle another estate sale, there’s only one person I’d even consider, Chet Nine.
— Doug N. / Leawood, KS
Chet Nine is thorough and works very hard!  Not only is he conscientious and knowledgeable, we had a worry free experience, because he handled everything down to the last detail, before, during and after the sale.
— Jack & Jonya R. / Prairie Village, KS
Nine Estate Sales was a lifesaver when it came time for me to ready my father’s large home for sale. I was completely overwhelmed at the thought of sorting through all of his belongings but Chet made it a much less stressful process from beginning to end. He helped me sort every room, offering great advice on what to sell, keep and donate along the way. And, most importantly, we ended with a highly successful estate sale and a home that was ready to be put on the market immediately thereafter. His years of industry experience (especially given that he is a licensed appraiser) were invaluable. In short, I would highly recommend Nine Estate Sales to anyone looking to downsize or needing to have an estate sale.
— Jaime P. / Parkville, MO
Nine Estate Sales managed two very organized and successful sales for my family. Chet is extremely knowledgeable and made a difficult process much easier for us. The disposition of a lifetime’s accumulation of treasures is hard but Chet walked us through every step and after each sale left the house clean and ready to put on the market. I appreciate his professionalism and highly recommend his services.
— Julie J. / Leawood, KS
Chet, you were such a help to me on several occasions involving clients who were downsizing and had accumulated so much more than they could take. Your presentation was tasteful, respectful and attractive. I was amazed by the turnout and so appreciated that you left the house all cleared out and ready for me to do my job.
— Judy M. / ReeceNichols Real Estate / Kansas City, MO

Our Customers

I’ve known Chet for decades and have always enjoyed his professional approach. His estate sales are never ‘cluttered’ like many others. Seldom do I leave a sale without a purchase as items are priced to move but yet seem to also make good for the owner. Another thing I appreciate, when I have questions about an item in his picture postings, a response is received within hours.
— Todd "TJ" L. / Chip Off The Ol' Block Antiques / Lee's Summit, MO
I’ve personally known Chet Nine to be an honest and trustworthy professional in this business for nearly a decade. As an antiques buyer, I have found his pricing to be well researched, fair and reflective of a deep understanding of the industry. What I like best about Nine Estate Sales is that he and his staff have always been courteous, helpful and very easy to work with. I’d highly recommend Chet to anyone in need of an estate sale.
— Kevin R. / Liberty, MO
I’m an avid estate sale shopper and Nine Estate Sales is by far one of favorite estate sale companies to shop with in the Kansas City area. From the large lion head necklace that I always get compliments on to the beautiful antique spool drawer that brings character to my living room, I’m always able to find the most unique items at Nine Estate Sales. The prices are fair and the shopping experience is always consistent.
— Susana B. / Leawood, KS
We get compliments on things we’ve purchased at a Nine Estate Sale all the time! From our incredible dining room table to the vintage hand mixer that is both useful and fun to display. These big and small finds allow me to create spaces inside my home that are unique, interesting, and affordable. I had never shopped at an estate sale before and I was a little intimidated, but I’ve only had great experiences with Chet Nine. He is honest and knowledgeable and I truly enjoy doing business with him.
— Samantha A. / Liberty, MO
I’ve known Chet for more than 15 years, and what I like most about going to a Chet Nine sale is Chet himself. He’s knowledgable, straight forward, honest and personable. When I walk in the door, I know the sale will be as inviting as he can possibly make it, even to the point of bringing in extra lighting, tables and displays.
— Gary K. / Kansas City, MO
