“We run a very busy and successful estate liquidation company and frequent their business with our client's finest antiquities. They always meet or exceed our expected outcomes at auction. I'm greeted and exchange pleasantries with anyone I encounter. Even though I'm one of countless clients, they make me feel as though I'm the only one. They remember important details and genuinely seem to care about our well-being. Your whole team is amazing, and I can't say enough about how much we appreciate what you do! It adds an element to our business that we couldn't provide without the hard work and dedication you put into your auctions. Forever grateful!”

“Our family has been bidding with Michaan's for over 20 years, and have recently become a consignor as well. We have fun looking through all the stuff every month, and our "good deals" are plentiful and filling up our homes. The administration and staff are friendly and very helpful. Whether you think you want something or not, you can find it here if you are patient.””

-Corinne C.
“It was a real pleasure working with the art team at Michaan's. I had many art pieces I had inherited from an uncle. Most of them were nice, interesting pieces, though not of particularly high value. They were very good at assessing each piece and assigning an estimated value. I tried selling them on various websites, including Craigslist and eBay; it was a waste of time. Michaan's was able to sell them all quickly and at good prices through their auctions and warehouse. Highly recommended.”
-Will W.
“I love everything about Michaan’s Auctions!”
-Adrian M.
“I’ve been attending Michaan’s Annex auctions for over 8 years, both on-site and remotely. The staff at Michaan’s Gallery is incredibly knowledgeable, and the staff at the Annex is extremely service-oriented, from the front desk to the auction floor — before, during, and after each auction. The remarkable service of Desmond and Joe comes to mind, as well as Tammy, and the staff who assisted me in collecting my winning bids were extremely helpful. In grading Michaan’s overall, I’d give them 5 stars out of 5 and look forward to many years of association with them.”
-Delores M.
“As a longtime customer, I rely on Michaan's to run an honest auction with an amazing variety of items from all fields of art and collecting. I'm a big fan of their monthly Annex Auction, which usually features over 2000 items and runs over three days. The folks at Michaan's in the office and on the auction floor manage this efficiently and with courtesy to every bidder.”
-Joel P.
“Every month there are between 2500 to 3000 lots from estates all over the Bay Area. We have found many unique finds at every auction. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I prefer to go in person to the auction, but not living in the Bay Area, the Michaan’s Auction online app allows us to bid from the comfort of home.”
