Our Simple Goal Structure
The simple goal of Antique Associates at West Townsend is to Add Value, Not Costs! Our belief is that all parties involved with a transaction are entitled to a fair shake, and to the highest level of service possible at the least cost. We also believe that the buyer is entitled to a period of time in which to validate a purchase, and that a reputable seller will allow this time. And finally, our ultimate goal is the make the transaction at a fair price for all involved.
A definition of Fair Market Value is when a willing seller offers a product to a wiling buyer, given adequate time and opportunity to make the transaction, and that the transaction is made at a fair price. The elements of a contract are a willing seller, willing buyer, meeting of the minds, and valuable consideration ($$). When all requirements of these two definitions are satisfied,the result is that all parties walk away with a fair deal, and that is what we offer...A FAIR DEAL!!
Unfortunately for the Industry, and for all involved, many of the current venues offer no guarantees, and minimal services, to the buyer, and still stick the consignor with fees when the product doesn't sell. In addition, the goldmine or lottery mindset that has overtaken some of the most sane of dealers and collectors has allowed some of the plethora of new and old auctioneers alike to charge just about whatever they wish. And then there is the element of Caveat Emptor, or Buyer Beware!! The folks at AAAWT don't believe that we are in a Caveat Emptor Business, nor should we be.
In contrast to other venues, we ADD VALUE to your Items, NOT COSTS! Where some auctioneers will take anywhere from 30-45% of the final selling price, our goal is to offer better services, less or zero risk, and ultimate customer satisfaction at approximately half of the overall cost. These savings are distributed to both buyer and seller, and in that way we can offer a Win/Win in all transactions.
