HOW TO CONSIGN

Consider selling in an upscale auction environment.  Whether you have a single item, a special collection, or an entire estate, it never hurts to see whether consigning to auction is worth your while. To learn more about the process for potentially selling at auction, please see the Consignment Steps page for a more detailed explanation. After receiving a proposal with pre-auction estimates, you can decide if you want to sell at an upscale auction house.

 

YOU DON't WANT TO SELL BUT STILL NEED A VALUATION

Not interested in selling but want to know what your items are worth?  Then you may need a qualified appraisal report. An appraisal report provides an objective opinion of value for a variety of purposes (e.g. estate tax, non-cash charitable contribution, insurance coverage, damage claim, cost basis, etc.). In the role of an appraiser, Courtney is not an advocate for any party but rather remaining objective throughout the valuation. Learn more about the appraisal process on the Appraisals Information and Appraisal Steps pages.
