The Millea Brothers
GO GREEN. BUY ANTIQUES.™
Millea Bros. Ltd. is the culmination of Michael and Mark Millea's fifteen years of experience in the auction and appraisal business. While conducting countless appraisals and managing the sale of thousands of objects at auction, the brothers gained comprehensive knowledge of the antiques and collectibles market. The company is grounded in their mutual love of art and antiques and their desire to provide their clients with high-quality property and unmatched personal attention.
Both Milleas have shared an interest in the arts since childhood. Each completed undergraduate degrees in art history and fine art, Michael at Drew University, and Mark at Cornell University. Following college, the brothers shared a painting studio and began to explore careers in the arts. Michael went on to attend the Appraisal Studies program at New York University, while Mark delved into the New York retail art market.
After completing the Appraisal Studies program, Michael joined a regional New Jersey auction company -- Mark followed shortly thereafter. The Milleas quickly rose to senior positions in the firm. Michael became the lead appraiser and principal auctioneer while Mark concentrated on business development, operations and online auction sales.
Michael is a current member of the Appraisers Association of America and has been actively involved in the organization for the past five years. He has completed the course requirements and examination on the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the congressionally-recognized set of appraisal standards promulgated by the Appraisal Foundation. Michael also has been a participant in the PBS television series, Antiques Roadshow and was a regular guest appraiser on the Metro Channel's Antique Show & Sell.
