Created through the collaboration of two local auction houses and an art gallery, Neue Auctions, a full-service online auction house, launched its website June 21, in Beachwood.
The Neue Auctions team includes Cynthia Colling Maciejewski, formerly of Aspire Auctions; Ron Greenwald of Greenwald Antiques; Bridget McWilliams, formerly of Wolfs Gallery; and Ricardo Bernabe of Greenwald Antiques.
“Pairing with Cynthia is an opportunity to not only expand into new collecting fields but to offer an expansion of services,” said Greenwald in a news release. “Neue Auctions will allow us to respond to our customers’ desires with an array of options and white-glove treatment. We have a similar approach to customer service and our dovetailing will allow us to build upon our strengths.”
Greenwald said the auction house has “an incredible team,” and is excited to use McWilliams and Bernabe to take the venture to the next level.
Maciejewski said, “I am thrilled to collaborate with these creative and experienced individuals to offer a new auction experience. People have many auction venues to choose from. For me, its about the people behind the product. This is where we differ from others, this group has experience and empathy.”
Neue Auctions will combine regular online auctions with selected exhibitions and educational opportunities, as well as offer assistance with settling estates, household downsizing, working with private individuals, trusts, estates, banks and attorneys.
The auction house is accepting consignments and will hold its inaugural auction in July, followed by a fall auction in September.
Neue Auctions, LCC is in the Ohio Design Center, 23533 Mercantile Road, Suite 119.
