A Few Words From Our Customers
We have worked with Walt at Cape Ann Auctions for many years in estate management and sales. He is incredibly knowledgeable and kind, and, what seems to be a rarity in this field, is very honest and sincere in his business. If you are looking to move an estate of any size, Walt is your guy.
Luke & Caroline - Dogtown Books
The absolute best auction house in the area. Super nice and professional folks that know their stuff. Comfortable dealing with clients, retail customers, and resellers. Most important to me is they are well organized and facilities are clean which is sometimes a rarity. Take it from me you won’t find better in the greater Boston area.
When a dear friend of mine passed away and as Executrix of her estate, I needed to clean out her apartment. I called on Walt who I happened to know. He was exceedingly kind and helpful to me in this endeavor. I would recommend him to anyone.
