Given our specialized experience with the auction process, we are well-qualified to organize and manage all preparations for a specific sale on behalf of a client, whether for just one item or the entire contents of a residence. We have supervised the dispersal of large and complex collections that involved many different specialized sales in multiple venues.   

Working closely with a family, a private collector or an estate executor, we create and implement the most advantageous plan of sale. This will often encompass soliciting and evaluating sale proposals, negotiating the most favorable financial terms, crafting and managing the marketing and promotional plan, and resolving the problems that often arise. 

In brief, we are immersed in every single aspect of a sale from beginning to end. Our objective is always to maximize the value of each and every item sold.
