From Entire Estates and Curated Collections to Single Items - We Love to Buy!

For years we've helped people downsize, sell off collections and cash out valuable items.
Estate attorneys have trusted us to settle estates, heirs count on us for complete cleanouts and collectors use us as an ongoing resource.
There's never a charge to see if Cape Ann Auction is a good fit for your needs. We'll offer a free assessment of your situation. If we can't help you ourselves, we'll do our best to steer you in the right direction with a referral to one of our vast resource connections.

from a qualified expert.

    Many appraisers only appraise, but when your items are evaluated by a seasoned buyer/seller, you'll receive an accurate appraisal report with the most efficient billing possible.

    That's Walt's appraisal methodology.
