Auction Referrals

Hessink’s auction referral program provides a wonderful opportunity for people to earn some extra money.

Part of what makes Hessink’s so successful is working with people who refer us to potential auction opportunities. We do thousands of appraisals and hold many auctions every year, and many of them are made possible by our referral program. If you know of a person that is looking to sell their property, referring the owner to us can help you earn some extra money.

All you have to do is talk to your acquaintance and give them our number. Once that’s done, give us a call to let us know you spoke with the property owner. You will be provided with a referral form, which is your contract with the auction house. If the introduction results in an auction or private sale, and the property of the seller is sold, you will receive your share of the commission.

Our referral fees are based on a percentage of our fee from the Seller and can earn you from several hundreds to tens of thousands of pounds!

We handle all property types and values, whether your acquaintance has a single object, or a large collection, and an auction managed by our professional auctioneers can be an excellent way of converting your art or antiques into cash quickly and efficiently.

When you refer a seller to us, numerous factors are considered to determine the eligibility of the property for auction (the seller’s needs, the item(s) itself, market conditions, etc.). Should we deem the property a good fit for an auction, we will design a custom auction marketing campaign and target as many potential buyers as possible.

We will do our best to educate you and make your client(s) feel comfortable with our procedures. Please don’t let unfamiliarity with the auction process scare you or stop you from earning more money by referring sellers to us.


Buyer Referrals

Hessink’s also offers an introductory commission for buyer referrals in all collecting categories. If you know someone who is looking for an item(s) that we happen to have on offer, please contact us.

If your introduction makes a purchase at one of our auctions, you will receive a 20% commission on the buyers premium of the purchased lot(s).


Advisor Referrals

Advisor Relationships

Hessink’s welcomes every opportunity to work with client advisors. Whether it is a single item or an entire collection, our specialists will consult, evaluate and create detailed sales proposals that are tailored to your client's needs. As a token of our appreciation for referred business, Hessink’s will pay you a very generous referral fee.
