In 1986, I began to assist heirs with their estate matters. In the years that passed, together with my daughters and some wonderful staff, we assisted hundreds of families sell their personal property or business assets. 

In order to assist families in a broader way, in 2011, I became a professional auctioneer. In addition to helping families with their assets through sales, I was now able to offer auctions. 

I also started and ran two non-profits in those early years, which makes assisting non-profits with fundraising auctions a natural extension.

Carmel-By-The-Sea Auctions

We love people and it shows in everything we do. Whether we are engaging donors at a benefit auction and raising funds for a worthy cause, or assisting heirs with their estate matters, or even a business that needs to liquidate assets due to retirement or closing (or simply the desire to move old inventory), in the end, we are always helping and working with people - and that is why we do what we do!
