As I said, you and your team work magic! I am so glad I came across your website and decided to call you. Clearing out my parent’s home seemed like an impossible task for my brother and I, and thanks to you and your team, it was all done in two days! I must say, you and your sister were extremely professional and very organized. I would recommend your services to anybody. When you send the information via postal mail, feel free to include some business cards and I will give them to anybody I think could benefit from your company’s services.

It looks wonderfully empty! Thanks for getting this done. Someone will get a perfect house to flip. A big load was lifted off us when we found you! Thanks for being an expert in your craft. Finding you was a Godsend; and you being a (Totino-)Grace grad in the same circles as us was cool! Thanks for everything!!!

We are in our early 70’s and decided it was time to “downsize” and simplify our lives. We contacted Laura Miller of Miller Estate Solutions in the summer of 2017 and asked her to help us prepare our home in Eden Prairie for sale. She gave us tips on “de-cluttering” and took a
number of things to be auctioned off or sold on consignment. She also provided us with one of her team members who helped us pack things we wanted to keep, but were not appropriate
to display during showings of our house. When we accepted an offer to sell in early 2018, we again asked Laura for help. We were moving to a much smaller townhouse and needed to get rid of a lot of furniture and other possessions. Laura and her team worked very efficiently to clean out the house in one day’s time. They decided what could be sold or donated and what should go into the dumpster which they supplied. Laura provided detailed documentation on sales and
donations and she sent us checks from the proceeds each month. We would definitely recommend Miller Estate Solutions to anyone contemplating the kinds of transitions we experienced.

Laura and her team were professional, courteous, hard-working and conscientious during our time downsizing my home and possessions. She also is flexible in what she can provide depending on your needs and her pricing is fair and provided up front. I highly recommend her services to anyone.

The thought of going through 44 years of memories was overwhelming to my dad, brother, and myself. Living in northern Minnesota made it even more difficult because there wasn’t a company nearby to assist us with this project. Laura and her team were an absolute dream to work with. Her patience and understanding of just how difficult this process was made it so much easier to let go. She is honest and trustworthy, down to leaving spare change she found in a bag for us. Laura made this seemingly impossible and daunting task stress free. I highly recommend Miller Estate Solutions.

I recently had to empty out my parents’ home which was full decades of clutter mixed with many items of value and I had to do it quickly so I could renovate and sell the house. I chose Miller Estate Services simply because they could do it on my timeline. They removed all of the junk, donated what was unsaleable, set aside what I wanted and quickly liquidated a good deal of games, comics etc. that my sister had piled up in the basement. I was pleasantly surprised that these items paid for a large part of the cost of their service. They did it all in 3 days, worked through some snags like my relatives coming to get items I had told them to remove months ago and were friendly, professional and had the place ready for the contractor by the date he wanted to start. They did a great job and I would highly recommend them.

Laura and her crew were not only professional, but sympathetic in clearing out my father's estate. Between cleaning everything out of the house, and taking care of all the outbuildings on the farm, they were amazing. They were done ahead of projected time, and were very sensitive in working with us. I can't recommend Laura and crew enough!

Laura Miller and Miller Estate Solutions was exactly what we needed in our recent move. We had a lot of furniture, lamps, mirrors, and other miscellaneous household items we could not take with us to our new home. Some of it was valuable and in good condition; some of it just needed to go. Laura and her team knew which items should be sold and where to sell them, and which items should just be donated. And they handled it all. Estate Solutions could not have been more professional: Laura “gets it” when it comes to moving. She had a system that made everything clear and easy. She and the movers arrived on time and took care in the packing and moving. The paperwork, billing and follow up has also been clear and we have gotten a few checks from the sale of our items. I recommend Miller Estate Solutions!
~Julie B., Edina, MN

You made our lives easier at a very difficult time and we very much liked you personally. The gift you left for me was incredibly special too and shows the respect you had for the items that meant so much to Judy. It is also nice to get the checks for items sold. We are glad we found you.

It was a real pleasure working with you prior to the clean out of Donna's home. You took the time to thoroughly explain to us what the process would look like and what we could expect from your team. During the clean out you and your team did an outstanding job, were courteous and professional, and were respectful of Donna's possessions. You were very attentive and compassionate throughout the entire process, and you made a very difficult situation easy for the entire family. We thank you again for all that you did for us, our very best to you.

My husband and I wanted to tell you how much your help with our move meant to us. As you recall, we had only six weeks to downsize the home where we had lived for the past 45 years. Being in our 70s and 80s, and being emotionally attached to most of our belongings, it was daunting for us. From our first contact with you via telephone, through your first visit to our home, to the final packing/cleaning, you and your wonderful associates were professional, supportive, caring, and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for more. We tell everyone that you were the best decision we made in an almost impossible situation. Our job was a bit different from how you usually work, because you had to pack everything before the movers arrived rather than after. However, none of you seemed to find that daunting – nor my 45 years of saved “treasures!” An unexpected bonus was the fact that after the move we received several checks for items that had sold at auction. You and your associates were thoughtful, helpful, had great suggestions, and were the most caring individuals with whom we had ever worked. When you were done, even the new owners were amazed!! Kudos and many thanks for all your wonderful work. It is not an exaggeration to say that we could not have done it without you. Hugs to you all.
~Helen and Ned H., Hastings, MN

You and your crew have been amazing, as always, and I am so grateful to have been able to have your assistance with this process. I can honestly say that we couldn’t have done it without you!

I was overwhelmed and exhausted. I had just lost both my parents from cancers in 11 months, and was looking at getting their house of 47 years emptied and cleaned so I could get it on the market. I would go in a room at their home, and not be able to get started. I researched and found Laura's company. They went above and beyond for me. They understood exactly what I needed, and held my hand through the entire process. I would highly recommend them, and am very grateful for the service they provide. I have been bragging about them at work. I am so beyond happy and grateful for their services. I hardly recognize the house in the after pictures! I'm glad a lot got to be donated. Mom and dad would have wanted that. My parents never did much for themselves, but they did donate a lot to many different nonprofits. From the bottom of my heart - thank you! My realtor and I will make sure to spread you around to the other realtors with a 5 star plus rating from me. I don't believe I could do what you do. I think this country would fare much better if women ran the corporations and businesses. Your business is an excellent example of that. Thanks again!

Lynn and Cyndi were absolutely wonderful to work with! I highly recommend them. I needed help with unpacking and getting my home into shape after a very disorganized move. My husband passed away several months ago and I had to move quickly. I downsized from a very full 4500 sq. ft. home to a 1000 sq. ft. home. I was very ashamed with the mess I was in. I was embarrassed and overwhelmed both emotionally & physically because I had so much "stuff" and no place to put anything. I have severe arthritis and I am recovering from spinal surgery so I couldn't do much of the physical work myself. Lynn and Cyndi asked what I wanted to do and then they immediately dug in and went to work. They knew exactly what to do without much input from me. They were focused and worked very hard. They didn't shame me by commenting on how much "stuff" I had, they just reassured me they were here to help in any way they could. They are a great team. They knew exactly what to do and they put me at ease. They worked very hard and accomplished a lot in just a little over 4 hours. I hope to have them both back again to continue my cleanup. Thank you for your help Lynn & Cyndi! After they left my home I thanked God for sending them to me.

Laura is a lifesaver. She helped my brother and I clean my fathers house so that he could continue to live in his house. My father is a hoarder and was asked by the city to clean up or get out. My father had a great amount of valuables that Laura was able to sell quickly and make a profit. Laura and her team were efficient and professional, and I am forever grateful for her.

I would highly recommend Miller Estate Solutions for anyone needing a house clean out. Laura
Miller, the owner, will have a face to face meeting with you and conduct a walk through
explaining in detail the process as well as verifying exactly what their client needs and wants.
She leaves nothing to guess work. Her and her team exceeded all of my expectations for work
performed on properties that they were hired to clean. Infact, neighbors who had witnessed
their hard work had reported to me how organized, careful yet quickly they worked even though
they were being paid hourly! The final bill was so inexpensive compared to all the work they did.
Laura is always on site with her crew to oversee the process. None of the properties were
damaged. Words I would use to describe Laura Miller are honest, kind, compassionate and she
has integrity. I can't thank her enough.
~Mary K.M., Edina & S. Mpls.

My experience with Miller Estate Solutions was most satisfying. Having made a quick decision to move into a Senior Living apartment, I needed to arrange for sale of my house, downsizing, sorting—all the details that make that happen in 30 days. Having the resource of Laura and her team made all the difference in the success of that challenge. Her communications were clear and timely, and her approach in explaining the process and making arrangements for numerous destinations of my “stuff” was thoughtful and kind.
~Joelene B., Hudson, WI
January 22, 2017
After my 92 year old mom had surgery and needed 24 hour care we found a wonderful assisted living apartment for her right near our home. After moving her in to the one-bedroom apartment there was still quite a bit left in her 3000 square foot home and 3 car garage. We tried sorting through each room on the weekends but after 2 months had barely made a dent in the the project. It was then that I discovered Miller Estate Solutions and met with Laura at my mom’s home. She clearly and kindly walked me through the process of the way that her company works and I signed up that day. We had some time to separate the items we wanted to keep before the job began. In two days Laura and her crew had accomplished what would have taken us months. We are so grateful for their amazing work and for her knowledge of what items to sell and taking them to the appropriate venues-the checks are nice to get! Thank you Laura.

going forward, I have the perfect person for my downsizing needs!

Laura and her crew helped us empty our parents house of 58 years of accumulated treasures and stuff. We were at the point where we had taken the things we wanted and needed assistance. Amazingly, they were in and out in one day and left the house clear and ready for the next stage of getting the house to market. Laura is not only professional but also she and her crew are some of the nicest people we could have worked with. They made an emotional project much easier to get through. Thank you to them, and I certainly would recommend Laura Miller Estate Solutions to anyone.

Oh my gosh! Could not have gotten through all that was going on without the help of Laura and her crew!! We were downsizing in the Twin Cities, moving everything from the family home to the apartment, the cabin, to our children, or to our retirement home in South Carolina. And trying to get our home listed PLUS awaiting the arrival of grandchild #2 out of town that would cause progress to halt. On Laura's initial visit where she said she could handle this (I had my doubts--they were unfounded!) she gave me a tip for marking items to identify where they were going. It helped so much. When the crew came to pack for 2 different destinations they were VERY impressed! When the moving crew left and Laura and her team arrived things progressed like clockwork. Every member of her team deserves a shout-out! They are all so special, dedicated, pleasant, easy to work with. They made this stressful situation glide by. SO, so thankful that I found this team! I would 100% recommend them for anyone moving that needs help! And the bonus? I get monthly checks from all the items Laura arranged to sell! Double bonus: our house sold in 8 days! THANK YOU THANK YOU, Miller Estate Solutions & Services!! From one happy customer!

We had a huge basement over 1400 square feet that was filled with junk. Intermixed with the junk were some treasures. The treasures were sold and the junk vanished in a single day while I went to work. I came home to a sparkling basement. We subsequently were able to put our house up for sale. I cannot say enough about how easy this project was to manage. The work was superb. I would use this service again!

My family and I are extremely grateful to Laura Miller and her company for helping us in a very difficult time. 20 years ago, I assisted my parents in moving from a two bedroom rambler into a new town home. We disposed of 3 full sized industrial dumpsters at that time. (I was a lot younger then.) It took over a week full time and was very difficult arguing with the parents about what to dispose of and what not!
So, now our parents had been living in a two story, two bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bathroom town home with a two car garage for about the last 20 years. They never threw much away during that time. Both of my parents were depression era people, and saved and scrounged everything.
We knew things were getting out of hand, and finally when they were forced to move into assisted living, we were able to assess the situation. The basement of their town home was wall to wall to ceiling with every imaginable item you could think of. Most of it junk. The two car garage was filled to the ceiling with junk around 1 car that was able to be driven in and out just barely. The other rooms were crammed furniture, clothes and other Junk.
I began the clean up task, but was quickly disheartened by the task. I spent many days sorting and disposing, but found myself getting mad as I did it. I asked myself "whey did they do this to me"? (Stupid question, they didn't mean to do that to me, it just happened.) Every item I picked up caused me to ask "why did they save this"? After three "bagster" type dumpsters, I realized that I had not even made a dent in the total mess.
By chance, my wife was involved in a conversation with a co-worker who indicated that she had gone through a similar event with her parents. We received a very glowing, positive recommendation about her experience with Laura and her company. I called Laura, who described her company's services and we arranged for her to visit the site and tell us what she could do.
Laura met with my sister and I, and toured the site. Laura listened to our story with great understanding. She has had experience with this same type of scenario many times before. We were given a feeling of absolute confidence that she and her company could handle the situation. The estimate of costs was very fair.
We engaged Laura and her company to do the job. They finished in less than 3 days. I didn't even get involved during the process except when Laura had a questions about something or a report about progress.
It was a great load off my family and I. Laura and her company found many valuable items that I didn't even know existed and brought them to my attention. She disposed of items that had no interest to us and called our attention to items we might be interested in. She recycled many items that qualified. I think they took at least two industrial sized dumpsters out of the site.
I would definitely recommend Laura and her company to assist you with Estate Downsizing. She and her company will do a good job for you. I can guarantee it.

You guys really do work fast to have cleaned out both places in 2 days! It was definitely an overwhelming task for the 2 of us, knowing that there was so much stuff that we could not keep. As hard as it was, we realize it truly was the best way to clean out everything so we can get the house on the market as soon as possible.

Laura and her team are miracle workers. They exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds in helping us clean out a house after a death in the family. We live in Dallas and the house was in Minnesota, and we continue to lean on her for anything else we come across.

I used Miller Estate Solutions & Services to sell some small items that had been in my family for a long time. These included native Alaska soap stone carvings, coins, currency and medallions. I wanted these to fall into the hands of persons who would appreciate them rather than just give them away to a local charity (I also tried but failed in finding anyone online for this purpose). Our Realtor recommended Laura Miller and her firm and I was very pleased after working with her. She sent me a check less than 2 months after dropping off the items. The prices she achieved were very fair and her commission was modest. Also, everything she sold was itemized in detail. I would urge anyone in need of this kind of service to check her out.

It was such a great experience meeting you and your crew... Such a really nice group of people. Thanks Laura, for making last week as painless as possible! I really so appreciate you! It was zoom, zoom, zoom and done! I truly could not have done this, without your help, so I thank you from the bottom of my very happy heart. I really do want to thank you for every single thing you have done for me Laura! I truly am amazed at how smoothly everything happened on "the day". You folks were wonderful to have around and worked so hard and fast. It is amazing to me how you magically made things disappear! So happy you and your wonderful crew were a part of my huge life direction adjustment! I'm loving it here and am having so much fun with my kids and grands. I have tons of time to spend doing things I want to do with people I love instead of taking care of a house that needed constant attention! People....not things are so much more fun to enjoy and I'm so useful to them all, just accidentally! All of our lives are so much better now, because of this move I've made.....thank you so much for being a big part of it.

I am the executor for an estate of a relative who passed away a few months ago. Clearing out her condo was not high on the completion list, so we saved it until the end. If I would have known about Laura sooner, it would have been the first thing done. She is professional and communicates everything up-front - that includes her process, fees and probable placements for furniture, clothes and general stuff. It was a security building for seniors and there were no issues at all with their front office staff or other tenants. All in all, I would say this has been the easiest part of closing the estate. I have already recommended her services to co-workers and friends. Thanks Laura and team! You guys rock!!

When I contacted Laura I got a response promptly. When we met at the estate for her to look at it, she immediately started with her ideas. As for us we were completely overwhelmed and Laura put us at ease! Very compassionate about our loved ones personal belongings. Worked with her team efficiently and fast. It only took a day and a half to complete! And left the house completely empty and ready for a realtor. We would recommend Laura Miller to anyone! Absolutely loved her!

My family was presented with a daunting task this summer when a (very) distant relative passed away. When we entered the home it became sadly clear he had been a 'hoarder' and the 1200 square foot home was packed floor to ceiling with papers, appliances, furniture, old clothes, books. You name it and it was there. It was an impossible task for our family to undertake and Lakes Area Realtors recommended Laura. The first clue she would be great was when she made room in her schedule so we could prepare the home for a quick sale. When I met Laura for the first time I wondered how this tiny lady could tackle this enormous mess? But underneath that calm and collected exterior lies the heart of a lion. Laura, her sister and two other helpers completed the job in only several working days including evacuating the home due to a gas leak! Everything was sorted and items of value were found and sent either to auction or antique dealers (Laura suggested where we would receive the best value). Mechanical items, cars and auto parts (I forgot to mention the garage was also packed to the rafters) were sorted and sent to appropriate dealers for sale. I appreciated that Laura rented equipment on a per need basis (versus charging us for things we didn't need). After the third extra large dumpster was hauled away the house and garage were empty and ready for cleaning. Her bid was accurate and extremely reasonable. She handled a monumental task with calm expertise. Over the course of the clean-up I learned that Laura has strong ethical and moral values that inspire her work and for that I admire her even more. You will be in good hands with Laura and her team.

Laura and her team supported us through two moves as we dismantled our home of 20 years and distributed its contents to three locations. She provided excellent advice on the front end as to how best to organize the task, and provided peace of mind as to "what happens if" all along the way. Knowing that she would be there to dispose of the pieces that I just didn't know what to do with was a tremendous help. I simply can't imagine having tackled the challenge without her calming, practical and efficient assistance.

When my father died his home was filled with mess and memories. My brother lives out of town and he and I had no idea where to begin. From the beginning, Laura was very gentle and respectful in her understanding of how overwhelmed we felt. She and her crew took charge and within days the house had been cleaned out and the valuable objects sold. She even took care of finding a place for my father's decrepit car! It was such a pleasure to work with Laura. She is really good at what she does and it felt as though the Universe smiled on us when we found her!

I had a challenging situation with a seller who had recently lost his wife. We were trying to prepare the house to put it on up for sale. It was overwhelming for the family and they needed help. After meeting with several other estate companies, I met with Ms. Miller. I knew instantly by her kindness and compassion she was going to be fantastic. She stepped in and just saved the day. I in addition to the gentle touch my clients need, her business also focuses on "green" services recycling and reusing everything possible. This was very consoling for this family as their wife and mother was very generous and environmentally conscious. They knew she would approve of Ms. Miller's plan. We could not have done it without her help!

I was so far behind the eight-ball with the business of the estate and my back was against the wall time-wise. So as a last ditch effort I tried the shotgun approach and called everyone in town. One of those calls was to Laura Miller. Laura told me how it would go, how long it would take and how much it'd be. She and her crew came in, took over,and "got 'er done" which was exactly what I needed to happen. I'd recommend her to anyone. Thanks again Laura.

Laura, you were very helpful in motivating them (downsizing/real estate clients) to remove things. They were very happy with your advice and options on "downsizing" their belonging. They felt you were organized and helpful. The great upfront job you did made it easier for me when the house was ultimately on the market. You communicated with me and them regularly. Your service was invaluable here.

Laura is amazing! As a Realtor, we get all sorts of homes that need a little or a lot and a recent home needed A LOT. She and Lisa did in just a few weeks what would have taken the seller 6-12 months! She is very compassionate and can handle the most delicate situations. You can trust Laura (and Lisa) with your most beloved family or clients.

Laura helped us organize our mother's home to downsize into independent living. She was very helpful in identifying items that could be sold at auction, on CraigsList and donated. She was thorough, timely and efficient. Once the process began, she remained involved and on top of the situation.

Laura helped my sister and I get a house of our Mother's ready for sale on short notice. After we tagged the items we were keeping she moved out the rest of the items, selling what she could, and appropriately either donated, recycled or disposed of the remainder. She did it all in a timely manner utilizing local help when possible. She is very professional, thorough and her fees are very fair. I highly recommend her.

My sister and I had no experience in disposing of an estate when we started. We thought we could sort things fairly quickly; send most things to Goodwill; keep a few things and sell the rest online. After the first two weeks, we realized that a mid-size house had thousands of things in it and the job was too big for us to do ourselves. Once we turned it over to Laura, she got through things quickly and brought in several experts to empty the house. We were able to sell the house to a neighbor ,'as is' for cash, long before we thought we could have it on the market.

I am an attorney and handle estates in my practice. For my own parents estate I was glad to have Laura handled the selling and donating of all the personal items in my parents house. That which could not be sold or donated was removed and the house cleaned so we could sell the property. It was very smooth and easy for all of the family. Everyone had a chance to pick the items they wanted before Laura determined which items including a van would be best sold at an estate sale, auction or on line. Laura and her sister were very easy to work with and I would highly recommend her company to anyone.

When I learned about Laura, I jumped at the chance to have some help downsizing further than I already had. She came to our condo with helpers, one of whom knew the auction, and helped me sort what to give away and what to sell. Invaluable. She was fair, informed, efficient--everything we needed. We got a check from her, and that was that.

Laura is a lifesaver! Knowledgeable, honest, dependable and fairly priced. I was helping my mom move out of state and needed to clear out her house so that we could put it up for sale. We did what we could on our own but run out of time. One call to Laura and I knew we were in good hands. She told us what she could sell, what she could donate, and what was trash. After we left town, her and her crew arranged everything! The house went from a disaster area to spotless within a week. Better yet, while sorting through what we left behind, Laura found some hidden away items that my mom had forgotten. She made certain that the most meaningful ones were shipped safely back to my mom, and suggested that we sell the rest. Thanks to her spot-on advice, we made enough to pay for all of Laura’s services, and turn a nice profit, as well! I cannot recommend her highly enough.
~Doug J., Mpls., MN

Laura Miller provided excellent service for me as I needed to clear out my late father's home.

I hired Laura to help me with a project I'd been trying to get help from my family with for YEARS! After describing what I wanted to accomplish, Laura was ready with a plan and a "Let's get it done" attitude. It took about 10 hours of work over 3 different days to get my project done. I now have a cleaned and organized family room and storage room. We were also able to clean out a secondary storage area so it is now pretty much empty. This space is now available to re-build my lower level bath. Laura was on-time, had a great attitude, was sensitive to my needs, great at helping me decide what to keep, toss or donate. She really helped to keep me on task as we worked together to accomplish my project. I will hire her again in a heartbeat the next time I need an organizer and have already recommended her to several friends!

We highly recommend Miller Estate Solutions/The Kiefer Sisters for anything you need to sell. Laura and Lisa are efficient, thorough, organized and fun to work with. We hired Laura to sell several items, including cars, on eBay and Craig’s list with great results. When we needed someone for our parents estate sale we thought of Laura. They knew what we should sell, donate and throw away. Within a short period of time Laura and her sister researched items, priced, photographed, ran ads and displayed all our items beautifully for sale. They knew how to market the items that we needed to sell. Their excellent presentation and smoothly run sale was amazing and netted us way more than expected. Laura Miller Professional Services/The Kiefer Sisters capable staff even did home deliveries for some of the large, bulky items. Some of the items that were not sold at the estate sale, that Laura felt should have sold, she retained and sold on eBay for us. It is impossible that we would have been able to do what Laura Miller Professional Services/The Kiefer Sisters did for us so successfully. The quality of service was excellent throughout the whole process of our parents estate sale. It has been a pleasure to work with Laura and Lisa and we will continue to do so as needs arise.

I am writing this letter to express my total satisfaction with the way Laura Miller transacted the sale of my last two (2) vehicles. Not only did she research the vehicles to determine the appropriate asking price, she assisted in the negotiations, acting in my best interest to achieve the highest possible sale price. It is unlikely that I would have been as successful as Laura in selling these vehicles as quickly as she did and getting the price that she got. Laura Miller is a true professional and I would not hesitate to use her services in the future.

She also told me about the people who were interested in what I was selling and how to exchange the money and a little about the people I was interacting with. I felt safe in the business transaction and prepared. Laura is very positive and a pleasure to work with. I have told anyone who has wanted to sell anything, just to call Laura.

After interviewing a handful of other trading assistants, it was evident that Laura operated at very high level of professionalism. Being charged with managing my mother's estate, and not having enough to warrant an on-property sale, Laura's ability to determine what was marketable, and what should simply be donated, was invaluable. Laura did a terrific job of researching our offerings, and presented them well displayed, with any markings or special details called out for potential buyers. Her communication and documentation through-out the process was spot-on. Laura's warm, gracious, and has lovely sense of humor. Having her on my estate team brought a big sense of relief and a great deal of help.

My husband and I live in a 17 room house wherein 5 children were raised, which included all their property. We've lived here for 37 years. If she can help me - she can help anyone. She has improved our home immensely and I am continuing to use her services.
