We offer both safe distancing and mail consignment services. Our Spring-Summer 2020 International Auction was a significant success with both a higher than average sold rate and strong prices on French Impressionist paintings..

Please contact us for a free, no obligation home, storage or bank visit. Clients are encouraged to email or text us images of individual items, collection installations and room settings. Safe distancing and an online emphasis are in place.
We buy, provide advances and offer generous referral fees! Many of our clients have a high net worth but have their equity tied up in their possessions, real property, probate or trusts. Let us provide you with the operating capital you require to make your transitions.
We offer free verbal appraisals, auction estimates, private treaty brokerage, collection acquisition and management services as well as robust pre-sale advances, guaranteed sales amounts and outright purchase offers via home visits, text, email or postal mail. Written appraisals are available for estate, equitable distribution and donation purposes both from our staff and our USPAP and GIA Certified affiliates.
