BEST ART BROKERAGE SERVICES

Are you thinking of selling or buying an artwork or an entire art collection? For a professional and discreet approach, use Banziger Hulme Fine Art Consultants and their decades of experience in the brokering of art.

We are leading buyer’s agents advising both new and seasoned art collectors before, during and after the purchase of Australian and international art, based on thorough analysis. We want our clients to be fully informed before they commit to purchasing an artwork. This process ensures that potentially costly mistakes can be avoided from the outset.

Equally, we help our clients understand the true value of an artwork, so they can make a fully informed decision on how to proceed to sale.

Prior to any purchase or sale, we perform due diligence based on in-depth research, so that our clients gain complete transparency as to the value of an artwork.

Banziger Hulme do not hold stock and can therefore provide you with impartial, unbiased and independent advice, whether you are buying or selling art. This approach ensures that our clients will also get better value, as we do not run a retail gallery and can work on lower margins, resulting in better returns for our clients.

As professional art consultants we will help you with the sale and purchase of oil paintings, works on paper, drawings, etchings, lithographs and other limited edition art prints, sculpture and photography.

HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY WHEN BUYING ART

Many clients today do not have the time to visit art galleries or attend art auctions. Instead, they use our services and knowledge as art market specialists to:

  • Preview paintings for sale at auction
  • Provide due diligence reports
  • Attend the major Australian art auctions
  • Manage the buying process from A to Z

The cost to get expert advice is small by comparison, and you will be more confident in your purchase and less likely to make expensive mistakes. This not only saves time, but also money, as it makes sense to seek independent advice before buying.

As pure art brokers, Banziger Hulme Fine Art Consultants do not hold stock nor do we deal in art. This means that we don’t have conflicts of interest when it comes to advising on buying art, and we can act as completely independent buyer’s agents.

Some of Australia’s major art collectors work with us and have created very important art collections that represent much more than the sum of their parts.

If you would like to use our experience and expertise at Banziger Hulme Fine Art Consultants to assist you in creating your collection, send us your enquiry to start a conversation. Discretion is guaranteed.
