I recently returned from a whirlwind trip to New York City. While there, she squeezed in a tour the Christie’s auction house with Daniel Peros, Associate Vice President, Client Services Manager with Christie’s Real Estate. Located at 20 ‘Rock’, and right across from the paparazzi entrance to NBC studios (I saw Hoda & Nia Vardalos while standing in front of the building), viewing Christie’s Auction house proved to be one of the highlights of the trip.
I toured the galleries, witnessed the inner workings of a auction house and sat in on a portion of a live auction. Discussion during the tour explored the intricate connection between the auction house and the real estate side of Christie’s and the wide range of items that can be sold through the auction house – with the addition of online bidding, buyers from around the world can participate in most auctions offered by Christie’s.
Auctions, while offering the the very finest of art, wine, furniture, jewelry, also have affordable options to bid on. Collectors can purchase a set lot of wine, paintings, furniture, home decor, for very reasonable pricing (less shipping) depending on the auction and how much fervor there is about any particular item.
Christie’s real estate clients may have their personal art, wine collections, furniture, books, home decor, antiques, collector vehicles appraised through the Christie’s auction house system if the Christie’s specialists think the pieces will be productive going to auction.
