About Us

Doris Kling is the founder of Compass Rose Estate Sales. She has an extensive
background in sales, trade shows, and customer service management. Doris earned a B.S. in business administration from DePaul University. She also has additional
education in law and work experience in real estate law which required that she
negotiate with banks. Previously, she also owned a retail establishment.


As the sales manager for a gourmet coffee company, Doris became accustomed to
organizing, supervising large events such as trade shows and staff. A friend suggested that she would be good at estate sales, so she went to work in the industry and discovered that she had a real knack for it. Since then she has helped numerous individuals with successful estate sales, moving sales, liquidations, and clean-outs.


Doris has hired a phenomenal staff to supplement her expertise so that Compass Rose Estate Sales can provide optimal results for her clients. Additionally, Compass Rose has developed strong relationships with auction houses, consignment companies, buy-out companies, realtors, and attorneys.
