We do not hold stock (unlike many other art brokers), so you can be assured that you will receive completely impartial, unbiased and independent advice.
You will also get better value whether you sell or buy art, because we do not run a retail gallery and therefore work on lower margins. This approach results in better returns for our clients, and they are ensured of complete discretion and confidentiality.
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 or photography.

HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY WHEN BUYING ART
Recently, David was on the phone with a client; we had valued her art collection some time ago. They talked some more about art, and it turned out that the lady would actually like to buy more artworks. However, she is very busy with jobs and family, so time is very precious. Hunting in art galleries or trawling through art auction catalogues is just not on her priority list.
Instead, she now uses us your professional buyer’s agent to:
- preview paintings for sale at auction
- provide due diligence reports
- attend the major Australian art auctions
- bid on behalf of clients and 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 will not only save you time, but also money, in particular when you consider what you might pay for art in a retail gallery. It just makes sense to seek independent advice before buying.
We won’t be trying to sell our own stock, simply because we do not deal in art ourselves. This means that we don’t have conflicts of interest when it comes to advising you on buying art, and we can act as completely independent buyer’s agents.
Some of Australia’s major art collectors have worked with us to create stunning collections that represent way 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 guaranteed.
To start, you can also sign up to our Art Updates for inspiration on art.
SEEK OUT INDEPENDENT ART BROKERS
As independent art brokers, we act on your behalf for the sale and purchase of individual works or whole art collections. Our art advisors work on a one-on-one basis and will research the best sale method and locate the best geographical market for every artwork.
Attending all major fine art auctions in Australia, we will inform you of a particular art work when it comes up for auction and bid on their behalf.
You receive in-depth analytical information on both the art work and the artist and also a condition report, so that you can make a fully informed decision prior to any purchase.
We will advise you also on an international level, as we are looking for the right market to buy or sell.
Our relationships with leading auction houses and galleries both nationally and internationally mean that we can negotiate the best results for you.
The brokerage fee is usually calculated as a commission based on the value of the artwork. You get better value art brokerage services with Banziger Hulme, because we do not run a retail gallery and therefore work on lower margins, which means the savings are passed on to you.
