Winter Associates

For over forty years, Winter Associates has provided personal property appraisal and estate liquidation services. We are one of New England’s most highly respected auction firms. We have earned a reputation for honesty and integrity. We have liquidated personal property for a variety of clients including law firms, museums, trust departments and other professionals. We also assist individuals who are downsizing or settling estates. We are available whether it is one item or an entire household. Winter Associates understands that the undertaking of selling one’s possessions can be both overwhelming and disconcerting. Our staff knows that the success of a project is not just its financial return, but the comfort level a client feels while we work with the objects they have enjoyed for many years in their home. It is important to provide a willing ear and well-informed responses when clients are asking for advice on what to sell and what to keep, as well as how to maximize their return. Winter Associates, Inc.’s services can encompass a “turnkey†operation. In such instances we will remove and market all saleable items, and also organize removal of all goods to be donated, dispose of any refuse and leave the home “broom clean†. Our firm prides itself on properly examining and cataloging items for sale. We have a well-earned reputation in the industry for honesty and accuracy. It is important for both a seller and purchaser to know that items have been correctly described. We have the expertise to recognize items of importance and to promote them properly. These are just a few of the reasons we have developed a strong client base of both sellers and buyers. Winter Associates, Inc. is proud of the reputation it has developed as a successful and well managed personal property appraisal firm and auction gallery. Linda Stamm is sole owner of Winter Associates, Inc., and was one of the firm’s founding members in 1979. She oversees the management of the firm while also acting as auctioneer and appraiser. The firm specializes in estate liquidation selling approximately 25,000 items per year. She is a member of the Appraisers Association of America and has successfully completed the National Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) course and exam. Linda Stamm is a graduate of Smith College with an A. B. in American Studies. Her museum experience includes an internship in the American Art Department at Yale University Art Gallery and a year-long Decorative Arts seminar at Historic Deerfield. Linda Stamm was pleased to serve as the appraiser during several seasons of Connecticut Public Broadcasting’s series Treasure Hunt, in which she searched local homes to “unearth†interesting and valuable items.

A Great First Impression!
Team@ Winter Associates very helpful and professional-I shared that I was very nervous concerning shipping (which was yes, pricey)-but their preferred shippers came through-the foam technique is brilliant! My art arrived unscathed. My first time with this auction house was a success..... We all know what that means, right? In addition Winter included booklets on the artist-an extra I did not expect and thank-you.... a nice touch!

I enjoyed working with Winter Associates.
Winter Associates were very helpful. They promptly returned my phone calls, made payment a snap, and suggested a shipper that did an outstanding job. A Masai shield is no easy item to send across the country due to its size and shape. The shield arrived in perfect condition and took fifteen minutes to unpack a custom made box filled with blown protective foam especially molded for the shield's shape. Very impressive. Had they shipped a grand piano, I'm confident it would have arrived in the same condition-although my wife by then would have murdered me.

Good experience overall. Arranging shipping was quite a chore and shipping much more than expected
Good experience overall. Arranging shipping was quite a chore and shipping was Very expensive. Box open when received but no damage other than two nicks on frame that may have been there. No real complaint other than shipping process. Much prefer Auction Houses that offer in House shipping
