Our Testimonials

I wanted to send out my most sincere thank you to you and your incredible staff for helping to sell my uncle’s collection. It’s been over 3 years and 12 auctions and I have truly enjoyed the entire process. It is bitter sweet that it has finally come to a close, but alas, all things must end. I will still keep my eye on your auctions and if I ever need help in the future, you certainly will have my business and I will always recommend Hughes to anyone that asks. Thank you again.Joclynn B., Los AngelesJanuary 2022
In the exasperating task of dispersing part of a 90 year collection of everything from fine art to ephemera, Hughes handled every aspect; grading and sorting the items, packing and transporting them to their premises, choosing the best method of presenting the items for maximum gain, with flawless performance.Clare Graham, Los AngelesAugust 2021
Hughes is responsible, responsive and pleasant to deal with. They kept meticulous track of all financial and other details. They were resourceful in identifying our more valuable items and finding the best way of disposing of them. They achieved excellent results for us and were most helpful when we moved out of a big house we’d lived in for a long time. We recommend Hughes highly and with enthusiasm.George Brumder, Pasadena, CAJanuary 2018
The people at Hughes turned a very difficult and emotional situation (selling my parents estate) into the best possible situation. Their level of service is remarkable, they took care of everything and did not stop until the job was completely done. I really appreciated their attention to detail, sensitivity of the situation and incredible responsiveness to my many phone calls and concerns. When the payment arrived, I was please to see the amount and the reports they provided were excellent. Thank you to the team at Hughes.Robert G., Tarzana, CAOctober 2019
