Services - Types of Auctions We Offer


Absolute Auctions

The word absolute is defined as being “free from restriction or limitation.” Absolute auction events are auctions when the product sells to the highest bidder regardless of price. 


Auctions with an Undisclosed Reserve Price

These are auction events in which the seller and auction firm mutually agree that the product will not sell unless and until an undisclosed reserve price is met or realized.  Quite simply, if the auction price does not meet or exceed the reserve price, the property does not sell.


Live Outcry Auctions

These are auction events that are held on site or at a neutral location, and are conducted by the auctioneer “calling the bid” in a traditional auction chant style.


Online Only Auctions

These are auctions that are totally conducted and transacted through 100% online bidding via the internet.  Typically, these are timed events where the buyer has a certain number of days or hours to competitively bid on property with a designated close time.


Live/Online Auctions

These are auctions where the seller and buyer can conceivably get the best of both worlds.  These auctions combine the “live outcry” method and the “online” auction method.  Buyers can choose either to show up at the auction and bid to the auctioneer “live on the lawn” or bid live real time online via the internet.

What Our Clients Say

I am writing this letter to highly recommend Jay Lawyer for his efforts in helping our family prepare and sell both the personal effects and the real estate of our recently deceased brother. Jay’s tireless efforts in aiding us to sort through a massive amount of family memorabilia and personal possessions was simply invaluable. Jay’s attention to detail allowed us to retain many items (pictures, letters, etc.) that we had either forgotten about or never knew existed. Jay accomplished his mission both thoroughly and in a timely manner which meant a great deal to us as we under quite a bit of pressure to settle the estate as quickly as possible. Jay’s handling of the on-line auction -which he rightly suggested was the way to handle the possessions - exceeded our expectations and went off without a hitch. Jay’s knowledge of the local real estate market allowed us to maximize our profits from the sale of both the land and the residence, which we could never have done as we live out of state. Jay’s advice was correct in every phase as we cleaned, repaired and sold everything as quickly and efficiently as possible. Jay handled our situation in both a highly professional and extremely sensitive manner which we will always appreciate. It goes without saying we highly recommend Jay to anyone who has an estate / real estate to settle and sell.
