Choosing The Right Auction House
REA Stands Apart
We realize that without great material we cannot have great auctions. From the earliest contact, all the way through the payment of auction proceeds, we work tirelessly to ensure that every consignor recognizes how important they are to our business. The seemingly endless number of venues available to sell your valuable collectibles simply cannot compete with our proven track record.
For Us It's Personal
We are one of the world's largest specialty auction houses, but we have the feel of a small business, which is where we have our roots. We've mastered the art of blending both worlds - high-impact marketing, world-record results, and polished presentation of the industry's premiere auction house coupled with open lines of communication, attention to detail, and personal touch of a small business.
As a company of collectors we get it. We have the right blend of knowledge, expertise, and resources necessary to gain top dollar results at auction for your valuable sports collectibles.
Highly Competitive Sellers Fees
REA provides superior service and realizes higher auction prices while charging a lower percentage than other auctions.
Highest Catalog Circulation
Achieving maximum exposure is essential. REA boasts the largest circulation of free catalogs in the hobby.
An REA auction generates worldwide exposure that reaches beyond the hobby through extensive press / media coverage and targeted advertising.
Higher Prices Realized
With decades of experience as the hobby's premier auction house, our success is well documented. Search our archive to see for yourself.
Generous Cash Advances
REA has the financial security to offer money up front against valuable consignments.
No one pays faster than REA.
We start paying consignors the day after the auction ends and never unnecessarily hold your proceeds.
Unparalleled Hobby Knowledge and Research
Every item in each REA catalog is extensively researched and well documented. We understand the material and in many cases have a proven track record handling similar items. Our catalogs are a treasured reference guide that hobbyists anxiously await each auction. Our approach is appreciated by bidders and consignors alike, with hidden value often unearthed as a result of our knowledge.
Proven Track Record
REA has an unparalleled reputation for honesty and integrity. A lot of the hidden conflicts of interest that exist elsewhere do not exist at REA. We are a service business dedicated to getting you the most money for your items. We are your partner in this process and directly benefit from your success.
