'Very satisfying and trust-inducing'

Kirsten K. / Consignor and Buyer

On a quest for a couple of final touches for our new home, I discovered Winter Associates for the first time last month. Having been in the auction business in NYC and the Berkshires many years ago, I was excited to venture back into the inimitable world of dealers, collectors, interior decorators and other folk of all kinds united in their interest in buying and/or selling property with a past. When I arrived for the Monday viewing before the sale, I was delighted to find abundant parking in front of the Winter building and a warm gallery just inside full of an eclectic array of furniture, decorative objects, art and other collectables arranged in appealing, booth-like settings--something for almost any taste and category, spanning four centuries and from around the globe. The staff was welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful answering my questions. The catalogue descriptions and estimates seemed accurate and fair. … I decided to leave an absentee bid on it, so I wouldn't get carried away during the live bidding:) I did stay for the beginning of the evening auction and found Linda Stamm to be a lively, engaging, expert auctioneer who moved at just the right pace supported by an efficient and cheerful team of runners and clerks. … Bright and early the next morning I got email notification … about my success and I went the next day to collect my purchase--a swift and easy process. Very satisfying and trust-inducing. I look forward to returning frequently to Winter Associates, as a buyer and perhaps a seller, and I highly recommend them to you.
