Description

For over thirty years, Winter Associates has provided personal property appraisal and estate liquidation services. We are one of New England’s highly respected auction firms. We have earned a reputation for honesty and integrity.

We have liquidated personal property for a variety of clients including law firms, museums, trust departments and other professionals. We also assist individuals who are downsizing estates, whether it is one item or an entire household. Winter Associates understands that the undertaking of selling one’s possessions can be both overwhelming and disconcerting.Our staff knows that the success of a project is not just its financial return, but the comfort level a client feels while we work with the objects they have enjoyed for many years in their home. It is important to provide a willing ear and well-informed responses when clients are asking for advice on what to sell and what to keep, as well as how to maximize their return.

Winter Associates, Inc.’s services can encompass a “turnkey” operation. In such instances we will remove and market all saleable items, and also remove all goods to be donated (such as mattresses, canned goods, etc.), dispose of any refuse and leave the home “broom clean”.  Our firm prides itself on properly examining and cataloging items for sale. We have a well earned reputation in the industry for honesty and accuracy. It is important for both a seller and purchaser to know that items have correct descriptions. We have the expertise to recognize items of importance and to promote them properly. These are just a few of the reasons we have developed a strong client base of both sellers and buyers.

Winter Associates, Inc. is proud of the reputation it has developed as a successful and well managed personal property appraisal firm and auction gallery.
