Well, it has happened again. A collector want to off their collection, and it is beyond my reach. So, the emails have gone out, and responses are forthcoming.
I love that I have all kinds of contacts, but how much should one charge for negotiating a deal for someone. 10%, 20%, 25%? Or, should I simply ask for pick of the litter. For instance, if I am helping to sell a collection of 500 pieces, and the seller happens to have a Hull Club….should I just ask for the club, and not worry about the cash? Or, should I worry about the cash, and forget the pick of the litter.
Oh well, we will work it out.
