New private sales feature offers options for consignors and buyers looking for an edge in a competitive marketplace.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (February 15, 2018) – J. Levine Auction & Appraisal, who has previously only worked in traditional auction formats quietly rolled out a private sales platform earlier this month. In addition to J. Levine’s online and live auctions they’ve added this instant purchase option for a variety of high-end items. The current collection features over 40 lots including an original George Nakishima dining room table, a selection of Martha Pettigrew bronzes and a Theodore Robinson oil painting. They are also accepting inquiries from consignors to add their items to the selection.
“This offering is a great addition to our services. Consignors and buyers all have different expectations and adding private sales will help us better serve their wants and needs,” says owner Josh Levine.
Levine Auction & Appraisal was founded in 2009 by Josh Levine in Scottsdale, Arizona and has been making waves in the auction world ever since. The company has two locations, a team of consignment specialists, in-house cataloging and marketing and a bulletproof auction process. J. Levine strives to provide the best overall buying and selling experience for their customers which is what inspired the addition of private sales.
The private sales option offers something for consignors and buyers alike. To sell on the private sales platform the customer must submit a form with detailed information on the piece they wish to sell. A specialist from the J. Levine team reviews the information and comes to an agreement with the seller before the item is posted online. To buy in private sales, the customer must register for an account, purchase the item and arrange shipment. The process is must swifter than a traditional auction and very discreet.
