From the small estate to the large corporate liquidation we approach every auction with the same attention to detail as if it were our own.

Picking an Estate Liquidator is an important decision. Whether you need an auctioneer or tag sale qulifications matter! When your money is on the line, do you want someone who is fresh out of auction school, or do you want someone who has experience selling the types of items that you have. Florida has strict licensing requirements. Ask for license numbers. The lower the number, the longer that individual or company has been licensed. A lot of people will say "I have been in the business for many years", check their licenses!
But licensing is only part of the process. Ask the auctioneer if they have an on-going educational program. How many auctions have they conducted? Do they belong the The National & Florida Auctioneers Associations? When and how will you get paid? It pays to ask your potential auctioneer lot’s of questions.
We are proud of our experience. For over 30 years we have assisted thousands of people in professionally liquidating their assets. Whether you are liquidating a complete estate, or just one piece, we treat your auction as if it were our own.
Everyone asks about commissions. We do not have a one commission fits all rate. We realize that there are $5 items and we realize that there are $20,000 items. We strive to offer you a fair commission based on what your items are. We also take into consideration what it takes to present your auction event and what it takes to market it.
No sales at the moment.
