Thinking of selling? Karin will walk through your home or business to evaluate your collection or the equipment you are considering selling.
She will help you understand the current market, the auction or consignment process, and establish the expectations for selling the collection or equipment.
She frequently works with trustees, executors and attorneys involved in guardianship, probate and estate liquidations to identify the items which should sell outside the local market and those items which can be sold locally through an estate sale.
A retainer for a 1 hour consultation at $95.00 per hour is paid on arrival. Additional hourly fees apply for longer consultations.
Consultations are not appraisals.
Auction Placement and Brokerage Services
We are hired to devise a sales strategy and negotiate placement of the object to ensure that it is appropriately placed to receive the most and highest visibility in the current market.
Our goal is for the object(s) to receive the highest financial return for the seller; therefore, placements may be at auction or private sale.
Karin offers several avenues to you for selling your items:
Consignment to high-end or mid-level auction houses
Consignment to high-end and mid-level retailers or galleries
Private sales of individual items or whole collection
Karin will evaluate your items then suggest the best avenue to achieve the highest price possible in the current market.
When consigning items, she will act as your liaison between the auction house or retailer, obtaining pre-sale estimates, sale fee details, shipping quotes, contract terms and estimated sale date, supervise packing and shipping, and track the sale.
During private sales of high end or mid-level objects, Karin will act as your agent in the negotiation of a sale price, supervise shipping, and collect payment.
For some collections or general merchandise, Karin will negotiate the complete buyout with a dealer, collector or wholesaler, or may provide estate sale supervision services.
A commission or fee is charged for this service.
