What People Say About Rainier Estates – Premium Estate Sales & Sotheby’s Realtor
When my brother passed away in 2021, I was of course heartbroken. I was also in Connecticut! How was I going to handle all of his affairs, his personal items and his home from across the country? Not to mention his cars, boat, titles, and so much more. Then, I found EstateTeams - I can't recommend them enough. They took care of everything, seamlessly! They even found items from my brother that I wanted, carefully packed and shipped them to me. On top of that, they sent me a photo of the new owner for his car with their dog in the backseat - it melted my heart because my brother loved his dogs. Personal touch. Professionalism. Excellent continual communication. Happy to speak with anyone who wants a testimonial for this team.
Ken M.
My sister and I needed someone to liquidate our parents home after our mom passed away. It was packed with a lifetime of things. Both my sister and I work full time, so trying to handle it on top of our 'lives' was an overwhelming thought. In walks Lisa & Alexa from EstateTeams and we knew we were in good hands. They priced (and sold) all the items, made sure the house was cleared out (and barns, shops, greenhouses...) managed the entire process, located cleaners and managed that too - and then sold the house! Highly highly recommend for everything!
Ken H.
Exquisite care
Comprehensive service!!

When our mother moved to an apartment in an independent living community last year, she left a large home and the bounty of decades of avid collecting.
We became concierge clients of Lisa and Alexa. We could not have made a better, more impactful decision for our family.
Meticulous research supported a successful online auction reaching buyers across the country, with astonishing values for antiques and militaria.
Exceptional project management skills found scarce contractors to refresh and renew the house and gardens, and kept them aligned like clockwork.
Refined design sensibilities assured the home was artfully staged and presented to the market, and cool professionalism navigated the negotiations.
From our first meeting through closing the sale, Lisa and Alexa supported our mother through this emotional life transition with warm compassion and understanding.
We are so thankful we found them, and recommend them to you with our highest confidence.
Bryan & Lauren
Lisa and Alexa have been such a pleasure to work with! Their communication and willingness to answer all our questions (big and small) made the process much less stressful. Our family had to push back the estate sale date due to unforeseen circumstances and Lisa was understanding and worked with us to figure out the best way to move forward. We had never gone through the estate sale process before and are thankful we had Lisa and Alexa to guide us through it! We were updated every step of the way and not once felt in the dark or unclear on the steps and details. Thank you both!
Laura F.
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. 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 EstateTeams 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 EstateTeams 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.
Gene & Liz Brenzel
*Note she sent to agents at Alain Pinel Realtors - Shared with us.
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 EstateTeams 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!
