Our auction gallery professionals are well trained and experienced with assessing the best disposition for an estate. Calendar date, logistics, labor, value and location are all things to consider when deciding how to best market a single item or a complete estate.
We work solely on commission. So we share an interest with the estate in ensuring items reach their highest selling potential.
Our most valuable consignment advertisement is from word of mouth by our established consignors. Thus, we are not happy unless our consignors are happy.
Depending on the size and value of the estate, we can conduct an onsite auction at your location or bring your items to our gallery location.
We conduct live public auctions at our gallery location in Tacoma, WA with approximately 60% of sold items going to local bidders and 40% of sold items being shipped to out of state bidders.
Our services are all inclusive. We will charge a flat commission rate for your consignment that will be established before we take possession of your items. There are no additional or hidden fees.
- Complimentary Estate Evaluation
We will provide you with a free pre-consignment estimate of the auction value of your estate. We can come to your home; you can bring your items to our gallery location; or you can email pictures of your items to us.

Our trained professional transporters are well supplied with packing blankets and bubble wrap to ensure your items safely reach our gallery.
- Cleaning and Restoration
As needed, we will clean and apply minor repairs or restorations to help ensure your items reach their highest selling potential.
