I worked with Showplace to handle my parents' Upper West Side apartment and had such a good experience that I used them again when it was time for us to downsize items from our suburban home after it was sold. Shawn quickly set up an appointment and Andrea and Amos did an evaluation. They came in with a fair offer and set up the pickup. They purchased a range of objects including art, silver, judaica and a collection of decorative objects. In both cases, Showplace got the job done well.
Showplace Fine Art and Estate Buyers were AWESOME to work with. I was hired to help an international couple handle the contents of a Fifth Avenue apartment that was sold. The apartment was filled with paintings, sculpture, decorative objects, furniture and a Japanese screen. Shawn, Andrea and Claire were a pleasure to work with. Andrea came back quickly with an offer and the owners were delighted. The owners let me know it was more than they expected to get. I look forward to working with them again in the future. They made the process so easy! I highly recommend NY Showplace Fine Art and Estate Buyers.
Moving is hard, having to sell antiques that you've lovingly collected for years is harder. NY Showplace made it easier. Very professional and understanding. Special thanks go out to Shawn and Wendy.
I just had an excellent experience with Showplace Fine Art and Estate Buyers as I downsized a collection of Asian objects. I first worked with them a few years ago to sell some decorative arts and furniture after my wife passed away. We had an eclectic collection. They expertly handled my sensitive situation with grace and kindness. Working with them was an absolute pleasure. When it came time to downsize again, I knew who to call. Everyone on the team is personable, engaging and makes you feel comfortable. Shawn was friendly over the phone and quickly helped set up an appointment for me. It was a delight to see Amos and Andrea again. They are knowledgeable and fair with the prices they were able to pay. I highly recommend them.
When I called, Shawn answered the phone with a [WELCOMING SMILE] I made an appointment & Andrea & Amos arrived promptly on a Tuesday....they took their time reviewing all my antique & modern pieces, art work, etc...they were very professional & thorough...we agreed on a sum total for my articles & they gave me a deposit check on the spot...they returned on Friday with very professional movers & paid the balance...it was an easy, effortless transaction...I would highly recommend using them!!!
I am very glad someone recommended that I call Showplace. They were extremely professional, thorough & informative. Every step of the way, I felt in good hands. The whole organization was on top of everything so that papers were in place and pick up dates & times were all confirmed. Relatively speaking, it was as stressless as possible.

Our experience with Showplace was fantastic. The team always responds in a timely manner and make things as easy as possible. We were very happy with their service, they are very reasonable with pricing, the pickup guys were great and i cannot recommend them enough. Super professional and a pleasure to deal with. Look forward to working with them again!
Showplace Fine Art & Estate came highly recommended and exceeded my expectations. I did not know much about estate sales so it was important to me that I could completely trust who was handling my mother's estate. Amos and Andrea met me at my mothers upper east side apartment. They listened to my needs and my concerns and understood that parting with some items was not easy for my family. I never felt hassled or pushed into doing anything. I also did my own research and can confirm that their assessment was accurate, fair and honest. They educated me on current market conditions which really helped me make some important decisions. When the time came to remove items from the apartment they were real pros. Their staff was organized and systematic when dealing with the building. I have complete confidence with Amos and Andrea and would not hesitate to use them again.
My in-laws passed away and we had to unload the contents of their house in a very short period of time. We had some items very valuable (original Eames chairs, silver, China) some items not so valuable but very cool. Andrea Baker came, took a look and made an offer. Andrea explained how she came up w the offer. Andrea was empathetic, pleasant and very patient during this very emotional time. We came upon Showplace Estate Buyers by chance and we are thrilled that we took a chance with them.
