WEATHERVANE AUCTIONS is an auction lifestyle brand which helps clients through every phase of life!

 

WEATHERVANE AUCTIONS has consistently helped families through emotional and difficult phases of life. Our fully trained auction professionals are empathetic to the individual needs of family members clearing out childhood homes, coming to terms with dissolution of marital assets or division of estate assets.

 

We realize that estate items are not just “stuff” but are truly personal, family treasures to be carefully moved for auction. Our auction professionals are trained to identify and set aside personal papers, documents and family photos to be sorted later by the family.

 

We do NOT “Cherry Pick” only a few valuable items that might sell easily at auction. Instead, we find auction solutions that are right for you and your unique situation – from clearing the whole house (our ever popular AUCTION COMPLETE Program) to coordination of residence cleaning services and junk removal to comprehensive, licensed real estate services. See our list of services below to see how we can help you!

Our care does not stop until you are satisfied!

A great auction company supports clients through each life phase. There are many reasons why individuals utilize auction services during different life phases.

 

New Home: You may need to furnish that first condo, dorm room or starter home with quality used furniture or you may be looking for that perfect accent piece for your living room. You might need tools for your building projects. The economy is in turmoil - why buy retail when you can purchase just what you need without heavy handed sales tactics.  As an added bonus, you can do your part for the planet by recycling and reusing quality items and reduce your carbon footprint!

 

Collectables/Hobbies: Auctions are a prime outlet for hobby crafts from sewing machines and bolts of fabric to scrapbooking and crafting materials. It is the ULTIMATE shopping experience without the high price guilt! You never know what you are going to find at auction. Sign up for our Auction Alerts and Quarterly Newsletter and you will never miss a thing! You might find a rare piece to add to your astronomy memorabilia, vintage Victoriana or First Editions book collection.

 

Redecorating: You might be furnishing a new cabin at the lake or a second home. Pick up exciting and unique one-of-a-kind interior design pieces to furnish your office or lobby. You might want to sell household items that no longer fit with your new design aesthetic or streamline and get rid of clutter in your garage or attic.

 

Special Occasion: You might find that elusive but important piece of jewelry that goes well with your Grandmother’s freshwater pearls for a wedding or a favorite childhood book for a special gift for someone special. You will love being entertained in a fun and festive atmosphere and do birthday and holiday shopping year round.

 

Senior Issues: You may be downsizing to move to a smaller home or a condo and want a simpler life. Our trained auction professionals understand the national tragedy of Alzheimer’s first hand and empathize with the family care givers. If you are moving overseas or to a retirement / assisted living senior center and can't take all your possessions with you, we can help. Mounting medical bills may facilitate the need to liquidate estate pieces to furnish or pay for additional medical care. WEATHERVANE AUCTIONS trained and empathetic employees understand that everyone has budgetary needs and expenses. We can help you maximize your return on auctioned items.

 

Personal Issues: You might be settling a divorce or coordinating distribution of assets from an estate of a loved one who has become incapacitated or passed away.

We understand that there are many different phases in your life and we promise to treat you with the respect you deserve. Let us show you how we combine solid business fundamentals with empathy and respect for your situation. Call us today for a free assessment.
