By acquiring Farmer Auctions, Hines adds to his growing portfolio of auctions giving his company access to the expanding fine art and antique market. Hines says, “I am very sensitive to the legacy created by Farmer Auctions. I am looking forward to growing that legacy of high quality antique auctions and exceptional customer service in the Mid-Atlantic region. Mr. Farmer & I have a mutual respect for each other will work together during the transition period to ensure that we offer the same superior quality of service to our clients and promote a seamless change in ownership. The transition should no doubt be very fluid.” The auction gallery will continue to operate in the Salem market, retain the existing employees, and look to serve the growing demand for live and online auctions.
This new strategic purchase gives Hines the ability to offer a variety of auction venues including: online only auctions, estate sales, real estate auctions, industrial/commercial liquidations, and now, fine art and antique gallery auctions. “I truly believe that Jarrod has the experience and passion to achieve new heights in the auction industry and this acquisition will help him get there. By leveraging new technology, accessing a broader buyer base, and bringing fresh objects to market, the formula for success is in hand,” Farmer is quoted as saying.
