What People Say About CalEstates
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.
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!
Betsey T.
To say that you completely removed my anxiety about the long distance sale of our assets would be an understatement. Not only was your team able to come in at the last minute, but you did a remarkable job. The buyers for the home were surprised to see how you left the home cleared and vacuumed just days after the sale - which eased my worries about their walk through. If you ever, ever need a recommendation, you can certainly depend on me for a favorable one.
Patricia R.
We hired CalEstates to sell all of our mother’s personal belongings, and in addition, we elected to sign on for their concierge services, and – no kidding, it was seamless! We (my brothers & sister) all live out of town and had no clue how we were going to sell all her things, coordinate inspections, sell a house, watch over contractors – so we put it off for a year! Once we got Lisa & Alexa involved, all the stress vanished. They literally took care of everything! They are professional, wonderful communicators and, well, ideal really. Can’t recommend them enough!
Kristin, Tom, John & Erik
"My husband and I called CalEstates when my brother passed away. The house was a mess. Full of junk and a few good possessions. We live across the country. He also had a dog (large German Shephard) and we were unsure how to make everything happen. He had done property additions without permits, there was a tenant living in the house, and we had to leave the state – then, we met Lisa and Alexa. Poof – all the stress vanished. They sold all the items, cleared the house, helped with the dog even, worked with the city, went to city meetings, and sold the property. Amazing is all we can say. Recommend highly."
Christine & Javier
“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.

We needed to clear all the contents of the Moffitt Mansion last weekend, and we found a company that did a terrific job in the worst weather possible! Lisa Taylor CEO of Cal Estate has over 30 years experience in the field, her marketing brought out droves of people and she and her efficient team made it all happen.
She is a Graduate Personal Property Appraiser, Certified Estate Specialist, CAI Auctioneer, and Benefit Auctioneer. The sale took place Sunday and Monday, and then anything left (and this home was 7.000 sq ft) with cupboards and stuff galore was cleared out! We weren't sure how she was going to make it happen, but when we came to do a walk through with the buyers Wednesday, it was spic and span and empty. So Kudos to Lisa and her professional team!
