Freeman’s is pleased to announce the Client Advisory Services team, a department dedicated to bespoke service for Freeman’s clients throughout the buying and selling process.
“Freeman’s has had its clients at the core of its focus for generations,” says Freeman’s Chief Executive Officer Fraser Niven. “We are delighted to embody this ethos in Client Advisory Services, and both Tom and Grace will bring significant experience and care for our clients to bear on their new roles. We have ambitions to expand the team in the future to ensure exemplary service for our many consignors.”
Freeman’s understands that consigning beloved objects at auction is personal, and matches consignors’ trust in our services with tailored, specific strategies to meet individual goals and maximize results at auction. Whether clients are consigning a few objects or an entire estate, Freeman’s Client Advisory Services provides start-to-finish guidance and expertise, helping to navigate the intricacies of the art market and demystify what can seem a closed or niche industry.
Headed by Thomas McCabe, Chief Client Officer, and Grace Fitts, Director of Client Advisory Services and Private and Corporate Collections, the department works on behalf of clients to realize their visions and provide a trusted point of contact throughout the buying and selling process.
Freeman’s team boasts extensive experience in handling single-owner collections across categories, working alongside Freeman’s specialists, support staff, and marketing team to highlight the unique narrative behind each collection or estate. Freeman’s excellent track record in sales of single-owner collections speak for themselves: most recently, the white-glove sale of the Collection of Virginia and Stuart Peltz achieved $1.4M; a selection of sculpture by François-Xavier Lalanne from a prominent Washington, D.C. family sold for $2.1M; the 2019 sale of the Collection of Robert J. Morrison achieved $1.5M.
