What People Say About CalEstates
There are many many more testimonials on our website! Have a look. This is a small sample.
“I went to a sale in Seattle and met Lisa and crew, and saved their card. Since I sell Real Estate, I figured this service could be a benefit to my clients. I have referred Lisa to other Realtors & clients with stellar feedback. I have seen Lisa & crew at my listings and they are hard-working energetic people that do an amazing job – Thank you!” – Jill S. Windermere Realty - Seattle

“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 this aunt, but she had no one else. I met with Lisa upon the recommendation of a good friend, we agreed on terms, I gave her the keys to my aunts home, 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.

“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.

"My mother passed away and when we accepted an offer for her house that closed in 10 days, I had less than a week to clear the rest of her house. I decided to do an estate sale with Lisa Taylor's assistance. She was awesome! Together we set up, she priced everything and we had the sale all within a week. This was a superhuman undertaking that could not have been done without Lisa. She was knowledgeable, calm, dependable, and friendly to people at the sale. I enthusiastically recommend Lisa Taylor for your estate sale". Julie Craig
