If you don’t have an entire estate to liquidate, Retro Robin can still help you. We frequently take items on consignment for sale to Dealers and Collectors, or as Brokers for submission of items to Auction Houses. We do BUYOUTS too, one item or whole houses. All YOU have to do is just give us a call!
