Welcome to Asset Marketing Pros, LLC

Assets sell at auction. This means your valuables, not yard sale items. Hire your local quality estate sellers to bring buyers for an increased profit. Then, you can watch without buyers contacting you or coming onto your property to wheel and deal. Let the pros handle it and bring buyers from around the country. Texas Certified Auction Professionals and Personal Property Appraisers are here for you.

Are you looking to raise funding for your nonprofit?  We have solutions for you, too. Asset marketing professionals are here to help you sell your assets with the auction marketing method. We bring competitive bids to the sale.  #thinkauctionfirst

Do you require an appraisal for your assets? Personal Property Appraisers – We appraise everything but the House or Real Estate Property.

What are Assets? What is Asset Marketing?

Your assets include cars, vehicles, sporting goods, jewelry, firearms, coin collections, memorabilia, collectibles, and fine art, items you own that have marketable resale value.

The quality and condition have a significant effect on the value of your asset. A well-known original painting with provenance will fetch an exceptional price if it is in excellent condition when sold at auction. On the other hand, a damaged, soiled, or ripped original piece of art has a significantly reduced value. A classic or antique car that is all original and looks like it just left the factory will bring the highest price at auction, but if it has not been restored to like-new condition, it is not worth the high ticket price.

Asset marketing entails internet advertising, print, push notifications, email blasts, and content marketing to get the most eyes on your sale. We have a list of qualified buyers who buy at our sales. They are looking for fabulous finds, so if you have something of value and want a great price, hire the best auction house.

Consigning Your Assets.

“How to go about consigning your assets”?

First, we accept quality consignments by appointment only. Start with a call or send an email. Also, it would be best if you had the items ready for us to view. We can discuss the process while we look at your items. Each of our consignors signs a written agreement/contract where the terms are in writing.

Next, we will set up an appointment to view the items and sign a contract. So be ready to have us look at the things you would like to consign. The auction house will sell all items we agree to take when the contract is signed. No items can be removed, traded, or given away after we sign the contract agreement. Pickup or drop-off are both available.

Finally, the consigned items will be brought to the auction to sell to the highest bidder. We will take our fee at this time and send your payment. Your payment will include a full accounting of each of your items. No upfront fees are required. We use a flat rate fee structure depending upon the items’ values. For example, the commission flat rate fees for cars and boats are lower than for collectible items.

What are your assets?

Your assets are personal property items like cars, boats, jewelry, coin collections, firearms, and collectibles, to name a few.
Have you inherited, moved, or are you downsizing? Have your Estate Attorney or Estate Planner contact us today.
Yard sale items are not what you take to an auction. If your item needs repairs, refinishing, or new upholstery, it will not sell at our auction.

Our Mission to Serve

We created Asset Marketing Pros, LLC, to assist individuals, companies, and government entities turn their inventory or sell their assets to the highest bidder. Our auction services include both online and live bidding auctions. We also broker large auction houses for valuables like high-end art pieces.

Our business model is based on transparency to achieve the confidence of our sellers and buyers alike. We publicly post the hammer price for each item we sell at auction on our online catalog under Past Auctions. We make this information available to the public to ensure transparency for the seller/buyer. Posting sold prices on our site can also be a tool for the researcher. When you click this button, you will see a long list of past auctions, open each catalog to view the prices, and see for yourself what price it brings. Click here to view sold auction prices
