The Distinguishing mark of a top-echelon auction house is a catalogue. There is a marked difference between a major auction house like Stuart Kingston, which publishes a fine catalogue, and the other auction companies in the area. A consigner prefers to see their property elegantly and elaborately illustrated in the Stuart Kingston manner. Which translates into real dollars for the consigner. Provides the consigner with as many sales catalogues as requested

Exhibition: Stuart Kingston is the only auction house that provides a full two-week by appointment exhibition prior to each sale. This allows ample time for viewing, and to make travel arrangements. The exhibition also includes a fully catered evening reception that provides an opportunity for local business people to view your properties after regular business hours.
