As your confidential private broker, whether you are selling or buying fine art, antiques, jewelry or other valuable collectibles, we put our national and international network of resources at your disposal. We can directly assist you in placing the estate of an artist, selling your collection privately or at auction, or discreetly brokering individual pieces of high value.
