In 1982, Leslie Hindman founded Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago, Illinois, and within a few years it grew to be the largest auction house in the Midwest, and one of largest in the country. As a result of the firm's outstanding reputation, it was acquired by Sotheby's in 1997. When the opportunity presented itself, Leslie reopened Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in 2003 and continued her growth trajectory. Also part of the Hindman family of auction houses, Cowan's Auctions was opened in 1995 by Wes Cowan in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cowan's quickly earned a reputation for integrity, customer service and great results. In 2018, these two firms became the foundation for Hindman, a rapidly growing organization with the ambition to be the nation's most client-centric auction house.

The thing that stands out about Freeman's/Hindman is their courtesy and professionalism. When you communicate with someone there, they seem to genuinely care about you as a customer. In fact, they went out of their way for me. I therefore give thumbs up for them in all regards. Definitely one of the best.

Hindman is always reliable
Between Santa Fe Art Auction, Hindman, Heritage, Bonham and Moran, I have built a large part of my collection. There are other fine auction houses, but for top of the line vintage Navajos, these people know their art.

In House Shipping for Jewelry
They were incredibly accomodating with my jewelry purchase. Other auction houses require you to make your own arrangements on shipping, even when it is for a small piece of high-end jewelry. Hindman's took care of the shipping for me, at a very reasonble cost. Made the transaction much more comfortable.
