- Auction and Estate Liquidation Services:
A family’s history and even their life’s work is collected over decades or generations. Reducing the size of a family’s collection, or selling the entire estate, can be very emotional for any family member.During this process, KCA&A helps individuals and their family members every step of the way. From the first discussions of how the extended family will be included, to bringing maximum value for the estate or collection at auction.The process starts by discussing the family members’ wishes and how the estate will be distributed. From there, a careful and thorough evaluation of each and every item is performed on-site.
Once the estate is evaluated, KCA&A will handle all the logistics of the sale, working with the neighbors and the city to create as little disruption as possible. We will also advertise the sale in multiple outlets and to our established network of buyers. Over the past 20 years, KCA&A has developed relationships with buyers looking for specific items and has developed a database that will be invaluable to bringing maximum value for each piece.
On sale day, KCA&A handles everything from start to finish, with the utmost respect for the owners and their families. The staff will handle all transactions and proceeds will be delivered to you in as little as one week.

- Appraisal Services
- As personal collections of antiques, fine art, silver, coins, and other valuables grow, professional appraisals are the only way to accurately assess those collections. A professional appraisal, before disaster strikes, is the only way to protect your past and plan for the future.The KCA&A staff has a passion for history and a real curiosity in the value of heirlooms and other possessions. When it comes to assessing the value of unique items or a wide-ranging collection, we also have the professional experience necessary to establish a verifiable value for every item in your collection, helping you protect your investment.
With a professional appraisal to accompany your insurance policy, the monetary value of a collection can be replaced. Without an appraisal, however, this may not be possible.
Appraisals can be performed in your home, at KCA&A or anywhere else that is convenient for you.
