As many have noted, this could not be a more professional auction house.
From answering questions about the piece I was bidding on to the issue of shipping, this auction house anticipates and answers the questions quickly accurately. Could not be more pleased with the service and the staff of Rago Art and Auction Center. Many could learn from this group of professionals

Kudos to the logistics person who recommended the shipper!
Buying process was painless but I was concerned with shipping of a multi-piece fragile ceramic. Rago's Logistics Coordinator responded to my request for recommended shippers and put me in contact with The Packengers. They are a bit slow but took great care in packing and boxing the components and all arrived in pristine condition at a price I couldn't believe! If they have other items in my collecting area I would not hesitate to purchase from Rago again.

A dream come true!
Rago Arts and Auction Center was top notch throughout the auction process and assisting me in arranging shipment with a very good shipper. The beautiful painting arrived well-packed and in excellent condition. It's an exquisite piece of artwork by an artist my Mother had wanted a painting by for over 50 years. She is beaming with happiness to be able to enjoy this historical artist's work in her home.
