Selling at Auction
Dallas Auction Gallery assists clients when they inherit estates, choose to downsize or divest of a collection. Set within our 30,000 sq ft. professional viewing and auction gallery, both buyers and sellers experience a seamless transaction. It’s all part of our commitment to keeping things simple. When it comes to estates and auctions, some people find the process complicated. Our highly trained appraisers and auction specialists work with each client to ensure an experience that is clear and straight forward. We provide full service estate consignment management and professional promotion and marketing, all designed to maximize values together with the utmost integrity, discretion and personal service. Auctions are held throughout the year making it easy for you to sell with regularity – often an estate or collection can be combined in an auction marketed for specific themes such as Asian Art, Contemporary Art or period collections.
Your Collection – Our Passion
Decisions regarding the liquidation of an estate or a lifetime collection can be overwhelming. Sometimes quick or uninformed decisions can lead to the disposal of your assets for values far less than their true worth. With one call to Dallas Auction Gallery, we will take the first step with you to help you make the best choices for realizing the greatest potential value from your assets. Our experienced specialists will evaluate your items and determine whether they have a place in the global market through one of our auctions.
We handle estates of any size and also welcome individual items of significant interest. We seek primarily antique furniture and decorative arts, porcelains, art glass, antique oil paintings, modern & contemporary fine art, estate jewelry, fine French, Continental & American antique furniture, Asian art, antique & modern sculpture, mid-century furnishings, clocks, books and antique silver. We will also evaluate other categories of significant or historical importance and rare, unusual items.
An initial evaluation can take place either at your home, at our gallery, or you can submit an auction estimate request form by clicking here. Appraisal professionals will help you determine the estimated auction value of your items. In addition, we will walk you through our consignment agreement and auction process so you are comfortable in your decision and expectations. Again, it’s about keeping things simple.
From here, we handle all the details. We photograph, research, and catalogue your items, complete final estimated values and market them to our extensive global market of buyers. Twenty-one business days following the auction, you will receive your proceeds.
