Appraisal and Sale


BTFAA specializes in selling art on behalf of private collectors, family trusts, estates and corporations. We are frequently involved in estate sales, working with family executors and estate attorneys to organize the sale of art and tangible assets from an inheritance.

Whether it is a single work or a larger collection, our firm will devise a sales strategy to identify the appropriate marketplace and ensure that the work is correctly positioned to receive the highest visibility in the current market.

To date our clients’ art has been represented in auctions in Paris, Chicago, New York and London. We believe that any work of art, regardless of its value deserves the highest level of service from a $15,000 sculpture to a multi-million dollar Impressionist painting.

Whether the avenue chosen is public auction or private sale, our goal is to achieve the maximum financial return for the seller.
