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.

Always a Superb Buying Experience
Love buying at Hindman Atlanta. I'm local, so its a great resource for quality larger items you love but shipping costs makes them less appealing from other auction houses. Descriptions are always spot on, staff is helpful, friendly. Seamless process. Bravo!!
