What People Say About Cape Ann Auction & Appraisers
I’ve had a great experience working with Walt.

Recently, I’ve been on the search to find a choice set of Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chairs to revitalize my living room. As you may be aware, a new set is prohibitively expensive, while the used market has beautiful vintage pieces that lay amongst a slew of fraudulent fakes.

Walt has been a patient, well-versed and helpful consultant in my journey to appropriately appraise and select a fine, genuine exemplar of MCM design.
Eddie Seetho
One of the best auctions on the north shore! Its the only auction that is cash and carry on the north shore. This is always a fun auction, with all kinds of great finds and buys! Great auction for dealers, homeowners and interior decorator, and everyone in between!
Luke Bassett - North Shore MA
Walt is very honest, gets some interesting pieces for auction and runs a great business. Whether you are consigning, or buying at auction, you can do so with confidence.
Martin Willis - Rockland Maine

Scott Morrill - Dover NH
When a dear friend of mine passed away and as Executrix of her estate, I needed to clean out her apartment. I called on Walt who I happened to know. He was exceedingly kind and helpful to me in this endeavor. I would recommend him to anyone.
Suzanne Silveira - Gloucester MA
Walt has impeccable values, and a wonderful business sense. He has been a known member of our community for over a decade, and when I need items taken care of, he is who I recommend most and who I use most. Thanks Walt for making the cleaning out process as pleasant as it could be!
