Downsizing: How an Auction House Can Help You

Deciding to part with items, especially those that evoke strong emotions can be a difficult choice. Enlisting the support of a responsible auction house can assist with belongings receiving respectful and dignified treatment.

Throughout the journey of life an extraordinary collection of belongings can be amassed. Some cherished pieces are priceless and can be held in a family for generations, while others are let go during the downsizing process or an organic evolution of personal style.

Deciding to part with items, especially those that evoke strong emotions can be a difficult choice. Enlisting the support of a responsible auction house can assist with belongings receiving respectful and dignified treatment.

For almost 100 years South Yarra based Leonard Joel has been entrusted with some of the most important and interesting private collections in Australia, ranging from the small to the remarkable. This renowned auction house has an enviable history that includes the auction of the first Australian painting to exceed one million dollars. Something of a Stonnington institution, Leonard Joel combines local based experience with the benefits of operating Australia wide.

An auction house’s value can be measured by the ability to cultivate a bespoke approach and deliver each individual client a tailormade proposal for their collection. There’s a huge time saving element and reduction in personal emotional investment too. Allowing an auction house to facilitate transactions ensures discretion and circumvents any direct interaction with potential purchasers.

A commitment to ethical standards defines Leonard Joel’s pursuit to achieve commercial imperatives. In an industry leading move, Leonard Joel cemented an alignment with ethical trading, ceasing any involvement with the sale of items resulting from illicit poaching activity. Exemplifying the company’s high value placed on fairness and authenticity, company owner John Albrecht says, ‘Transparency is a matter of principle and responsibility for me and all who work here.’

Partnering with a trusted auction house can be a simple but significant step to experiencing the reduction of a private collection as a rewarding process when downsizing, that allows a home to be filled with only truly cherished items that enrich an individual’s lifestyle.
