"Thank you so much for running the auction at the History Center in San Luis Obispo. I'm thrilled to report that we more than met our fundraising goal for the evening. Your talent and advice will allow us to care for the History Center's collections throughout the coming year. The funds we raised at this year's gala will pay for rent, utilities, and archival supplies. Thanks also for your patience with our disorganization - we have to work with you again!" - Eva Ulz Curator & Director (2016)


"Lisa Taylor is awesome! She helped us put on our first gala, and we raised more than three times as much money as we had at our past annual events. She makes the whole process fun and achievable. We got a lot of excellent positive feedback from our guests regarding the paddle raise and live auction. We are so grateful for her support". - Carie B. Executive Director (2016 - 2017)


"Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for everything you did to make our Animal Friends Gala a success. You made such a difference in so many ways!

What a blessing you are!" - The board & staff of AFRP (2016)​

Each time they have been extremely accommodating and have made us feel comfortable with the process. They are all extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly”! – Irene & Vance


"Lisa did an amazing job as our auctioneer for our Gala! She was extremely knowledgeable about best practices and really helped us throughout the entire planning process. She was also great about quickly answering emails and phone calls with thoughtful responses. Most importantly, Lisa helped us raise three times the amount we raised last year during our live auction and helped meet our raise-a-paddle and silent auction goals, too! Thank you, Lisa!"​ - Nadine D. Director of Resource Development​, Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley

“I have had the opportunity to participate in 2 events with this team. I am impressed with the way in which they make sure every seller and buyer has the best possible experience. From the care that is given to setting up to their marketing and advertising, it was a great experience. I would work with them again in a heartbeat”. Janie B.

“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.

“Lisa Taylor helped us raise a record $102,000 at our 21st Annual Ciao! Cioppino! Dinner & Auction.” - Philip G. - Development Director


“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

“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.

“I called Lisa and her team because of a storage unit I have had for years and was simply tired of paying rent for…I came to realize after years of having all of those items my mom and grandma left me, plus a load of designer clothes and handbags I would never use...it was just time. I made the call, and am so glad I did! No more storage rent and a great result!” – Trisha P.

“I got a call from a lawyer in California, 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, 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.
