While pursuing a career in Information Technology she worked weekends as an apprentice to art restorer Theo Tarter in New York City.

She owns Aurum Appraisals LLC, an appraisal firm. She brings with her a vast experience in marketing, business management, customer service, information technology, interior design and a stellar crew committed to excellence.

My family and I are extremely impressed with, and thankful for the work done by Stellar Estate Services in putting together an outstanding estate sale for my parents' collection.

Cristiane was very thoughtful and informative in our initial meeting with her (patiently explaining things to us, as we were new to estate sales). Her background and expertise in appraising art made a huge difference for us, as my parents had a fair amount of Native American pottery and jewelry. She and her team navigated some challenges along the way (e.g., scheduling constraints from the neighborhood HOA) with grace.

The website and the sale itself were top-notch and we received many comments from friends and family on how attractive and well organized everything was. It was also a huge relief that they took care of cleaning out the house after the sale. Even after it was all through, Cristiane has been following up with our family and helping out in many ways -- solidifying a connection with us as people (not just clients). We feel very fortunate to have worked with Cristiane and Stellar Estate Services and we'd strongly recommend them to anyone.

If you are planning a major move, selling a home, or otherwise downsizing, you will need excellent professional help - if only to save your sanity, And here is your help! Christiane Marquez organized my complicated sale with enthusiasm and so much hard work! Christiane and her team organized my sale items (some junk, some valuable),.... sorted, cleaned, and researched for the correct price, and extensively advertised to her long list of possible buyers. I was astonished at the long hours she spent setting up the sale, and still maintaining her enthusiasm and pleasant demeanor. I cannot recommend her and her organization highly enough! Stellar Estate Services is the absolute best!

I recently attended an estate sale hosted by Stellar Estate Services.
Wow! I was very impressed with the obvious care and attention they gave to setting up the house. Items were displayed well and clearly priced. The attention to detail was amazing! It was easy to locate someone on the crew if you needed assistance, and they were helpful and professional. Christiane and her team have perfected the set up, staging and execution of an estate sale, all with the utmost respect to the client. It is refreshing to see an estate sale company who clearly takes pride in what they do! Keep up the good work!

I so appreciate Cristiane Marques and Stellar Estate Services for the care, expertise, professionalism she and her team brought handling my mother’s estate. Stellar Estate prepared at length for the sale, offered creative marketing, handled every detail. Art collections, books, antiques were appraised and presented brilliantly. Her genuine kindness helped us through this difficult transition for our family letting go of a much-loved home.

Stellar Estate Services and Cristiane did a wonderful job in preparing and executing the sale in our home. They patiently and meticulously catalogued hundreds of cherished items, conducted a highly successful three-day sale, and helped with the final clearing and cleaning of the home to be sale ready. She is highly sensitive to situations and requirements of the client.
We highly recommend Cristiane and her team for you to trust with your needs. From our experience we made the clear and right choice!

I am a luxury property realtor and my clients expect the best. I have referred clients to Stellar Estate Services on a few occasions. I was impressed with all that goes into getting the best value for personal property items - research, fair market value, and Cristiane's network of professionals all over the U.S. My clients were very happy and in turn I am very happy - will definitely refer their services again.

Stellar Estate Services did a marvelous job with our estate sale. We left everything in Christiane's hands when we moved out of state. She and her crew arranged everything. Our friends and neighbors went to our home to check it out and told us that everything was beautifully arranged, clean and orderly. They actually raved about it. When the estate sale was over, the house was left in immaculate condition and what remained unsold was donated to the non profit of our choice. We received a check for the proceeds of the sale promptly. We highly recommend Stellar Estate Services and Christiane Marques.

The trustees of a house I had listed had hired Stellar Estate Services to sell the household contents. Both owners had passed away and the house was empty for a while. I met Cristiane and was quite impressed with the work her crew put in. I saw them bring the house back to its glory days, with a sorting/organizing/staging that made my job quite easy. Will refer Stellar to my clients anytime they have quality items or a large estate to be sold.
