Owner, Lisa Taylor and her family team provide each client, family & trustee with the one-on-one attention and the tailored services they deserve.

Carmel-By-The-Sea Auctions is a boutique estate, real estate & auction company. We work with only a select number of smaller, quality estates at a given time,  so that we can focus on building a trusted relationship with each estate representative. We don’t have a huge auction warehouse, or hold live auctions with thousands of items, we get to know our clients and their belongings personally. We pour our time and energy into learning about 
consigned items, investing greater time and resources into research and verification and the important  photography that highlights each items unique qualities.

By working this way, we see higher outcomes for our clients’ estates, enduring relationships with clients, and buyers that keep coming back due to the consistent quality &  fun!

Consignments over $20,000 in value have a zero commission with us - meaning, you gain the benefit of our private client list and sell your items without paying a commission. Our private buyers pay a buyers premium so that you have nothing standing in your way. Consign today! Connect with Lisa directly: for a private estate valuation of your items.

If you are looking for an estate company with over 30 years of experience as a family business that’s dedicated to making your customer experience simple and satisfying, then you have come to the right place!

We specialize in high-end consignments and estates, connecting buyers with sellers that have exactly what they want. Not all of our sales are public auctions or sales, many collectibles find owners ‘offline,’ as the sellers wish.

We hold professional designations and licenses that include; Realtor, Graduate Personal Property Appraiser, CAI Auctioneer, Benefit Auctioneer, Certified Estate Specialist - we can handle all facets.

We have a broad reach with our local and global auctions and sales. In addition to sales through out the Monterey Bay area, we have a Northern California location where we sell estate goods and gather consignments from San Francisco, Tiburon, Piedmont, Berkeley and the Orinda area.
