Auction Broker Services
The Key to Getting the Most Amount of Money When Selling at Auction
is to Locate the Best Auctioneer For What You Have to Sell

Auctioneers are not all the same. And if you select the wrong Auctioneer to handle your consignment, your decision could cost you dearly. That's where Michael Ivankovich "Auction Broker" services come in. The key to getting the most amount of money when selling at Auction is to locate the best Auctioneer for what you have to sell. And as Auction Brokers we are often the best resource to help you accomplish just that.

Most people have little knowledge of the Auction business, or the specialties and reputations of various Auctioneers, or what they should do with their consignment? That's where our "Auction Broker" services come in.

As "Auction Brokers" will perform several vital services that will help you to obtain the most amount of money for what you are selling:

  • We will explain the Auction process to you.
  • We will explain the difference between National, Regional, and Local Auctioneers, and which Auction level is best suited for what you have.
  • We will walk you though the legalese on an Auction Contract.
  • We know which Auctioneers specialize in specific commodities, and which Auctioneers have upcoming Auctions in your particular category.
  • We will locate the best Auctioneer for what you have to sell.
  • We will help you to understand the best time of the year to sell.
  • We will help you understand when to send it all to one Auctioneer, and when it's best to split your consignment between two or more Auctioneers.
  • We will negotiate the fairest commission possible for what you have to sell. (Are you aware that in some instances Auctioneers will work for "Zero Commission?").
  • Depending upon the merchandise, sometimes (but not always) we can negotiate a reasonable "Reserve" for you. (A "Reserve" is a minimum price below which the item will not sell, and usually has to be negotiated with the Auction Company).
  • We will guide you through the entire process.

If you are considering selling things of value at Auction, we can probably help you avoid making a very major and expensive mistake. Click on this link to learn more.

Picture, Print & Pastel Cleaning and Conservation Services
Improve the Look. Enhance the Value.

Most Antique pictures and prints have never been cleaned and the dirt and chemical build-up on both sides of the glass can cause permanent harm to both the image and the matting. We offer a 10-Step Cleaning and Conservation Service that cleans the picture, glass, and mat, adds protective acid-free backing materials, provides long-term protection, improves the look, and which also includes authentication and current valuation.
