Selling with The Potomack Company

At The Potomack Company our goal is simple: to help you realize the true value of your property with high-level expertise and customer service.

To achieve this goal, we offer three distinct ways to sell your property.

-Consignment for Auction
-Estate sales
-Purchase of Estates


Live Auctions

We conduct fully-catalogued live auctions with bidding in-person, via the telephone, by absentee bids and through the internet. This range of options allows your property to reach a world-wide audience of potential buyers. In addition to live auctions in our Gallery, we can come to you and provide on-site auctioning of entire estates.


Consigning to Our Auctions

Selling in our auctions is a simple three-step process.

1. Consultation
The first step is to arrange a complimentary consultation. You may arrange an appointment in our Gallery, email photographs to or mail photographs to us, or schedule a meeting with one of our representatives at your home. We will evaluate your property and promptly provide a preliminary estimate of its value.

2. Your Decision to Sell
Upon consignment of your property, you will sign a consignment contract and decide whether you should set a minimum or ‘reserve’ price. We will then take in the property to catalogue and photograph. You may bring the property to us or we can arrange for shipping to our Gallery with Potomack Company shipping, our on-staff crew or another moving company.

3. Payment
After the sale, you will receive an accounting that lists the final hammer price for each item sold. We will send you payment (the hammer price less the seller’s commission and agreed-upon expenses) within thirty days of the sale of the property, provided we have received payment from the buyer.


Estate Sales

On-Site liquidation of entire estates with tagged prices in a non-auction format.


Purchase of Estates

We purchase entire estates from owners seeking a quick and convenient disposition of their property. Please contact us to discuss selling your estate.
