Buying at Auction
Buying at auction is fun and easy with J. Levine! Whether you’re an auction veteran or brand new here, you’ll have no problem! Bidding is as simple as signing up for an account and picking what you want to bid on. Actually, picking what you want to bid on is probably the hardest part!
We specialize in high-end collections of fine jewelry, guitars, classic cars, handbags, bronzes, firearms and almost everything in between. So whether you’re looking to add to your collection, just that one special piece or you’re in it for the thrill of the hunt, we have something for you! Plus, with weekly auction catalogs there’s always something new!
Warning: The thrill of the hunt and the high of winning can be addicting.
We have weekly online auctions and specialty online auctions. These auctions are the most frequent and have the most inventory. Simply, register online and shop! Winnings can be picked up or shipped.
In-person auctions are a fun experience and perfect for people watching! We host just a few a year, but don’t be intimidated! All you have to do is flash your paddle when you want to bid! If you can’t make it into the auction you can bid online, over the phone or absentee.
We sometimes hold onsite auctions when a large collection or full estate is being sold. Onsite auctions allow you to see the pieces in a natural setting and give you an idea of how they would look in your own space. If you bid in person you will register onsite as you would for any other live auction. You can also bid online, over the phone or absentee.
Buying real estate at auction is a streamlined alternative to the traditional home buying experience. There are no long negotiation periods, the closing date is known before sale and there is no advantage to being the first to see the home. Check individual auctions for specific bidding terms and requirements.
