Walt Kolenda has been in the auction/re-sale business since 1979. He's conducted virtually every kind of auction & estate sale possible. 


With a background in the re-sale of estate merchandise & excess business inventory, he is ready to work with heirs, estate executors, attorneys & business owners. 

As a certified appraiser, he can help when the property at hand requires an appraisal report. 

His background as a "Yankee Picker" means he can lead his crew to conduct a quick, thorough clean-out of your property when necessary. 

Whether you are an executor in charge of your parent’s estate, or an attorney looking for bids on a client’s personal property, the team at Cape Ann Auction is happy to help.


And of course, there is never a charge for a professional assessment of your situation.  

With a comprehensive administrative and customer relations background, Robin Kolenda makes sure our events run as seamlessly as possible.


Event promotion is as critical as anything we do. Getting people to know about our events requires Robin's experience and technical savvy, but getting them to WANT to attend is where great customer rapport comes in!

Big events have many moving parts - we're lucky to have her as our "Chief  Troubleshooter"
