Our Testimonials

Good Morning Lisa! I Hope you slept well and are energized! You and your daughter did such a wonderful job on our small sale in San Francisco. Thank you so much for sharing the heart-warming stories from our aunts home. As I think about all the wonderful stories you have shared that unfolded yesterday, they were all meant to be, and with the remaining furniture and other items, more stories will be made. Have you written your book yet? Estate Sale Stories...The Real Value. It would be a fascinating and warm story when written by you!

So thoughtful and kind of you to share these stories with me, even on a Sunday morning! It is a great way for me to start my day! Thank you again! Have a most delightful day!

Lisa, you and your team exceeded our expectations! Not only did you sell 95% of the household goods, you managed to make more than we had anticipated. You made our downsizing and moving on so much easier. And not only the sale, you added the option of placing other items, and a few that didn’t sell, into your online auction – so we stand to make even more! We are thankful. Dave K.February 2018
“I got a call from a lawyer in Seattle, telling me my aunt passed away and left me everything. I live in New York City and didn’t even know her, but she had no one else. I met with Lisa, we agreed on terms, I gave her the keys and flew home. The house was packed to the gills; most of it looked like junk to me. Lisa and her team saw more. A few weeks later, I received a check for $30,000 and was in total shock. What a wonderful gift from my aunt. Thanks Lisa!” Susan C.March 2016
“Our mother had passed away and items were located in her condo and storage unit. We had nowhere to have a sale. Lisa and her team made it all happen in 3 days. The truck went to the condo and then to storage, picked everything up and moved it to her sale facility in Seattle. It was a huge load off of our minds at a time when we had so many other things to consider. We just wished she had a Real Estate license at the time too! The proceeds check was much larger than we had ever anticipated because of the research time they took to go over every little thing. The experience could not have been any better!”Rachel S.June 2011
Lisa Taylor and her team helped my wife and I on a number of occasions with consignment of high value pieces. She was just super in immediately understanding the help we were asking her to provide and coming up with recommendations. The plan she presented was as good as it gets. She achieved all of our objectives with professional and personal aplomb. She has great enthusiasm and energy as well. We would unhesitatingly recommend her with the highest confidence that she will meet or exceed almost anyone’s expectations”Gene & Liz B.April 2005
