MaxSold Highlights: Model Train to Oil Painting October 2015

October 2015 at MaxSold was busy month with over 100 auctions! We had several in New York including one in the posh Upper East Side of Manhattan, a big one in Boston, many in Washington DC metro (one even included a 1969 Cadillac), several auctions across the United States – many in sunny Los Angeles (California) and Atlanta (Georgia). Canada was on fire with several dozens of auctions in the Greater Toronto Area, across Ontario and many in beautiful Vancouver (British Columbia).

This month was a big month for new market launches – MaxSold launched in Orlando (Florida), Houston (Texas), the Bay area (California) and Raleigh (North Carolina). Despite the record number of auctions and market launches, we had lots of fun at MaxSold. We had an internal team contest for Halloween and MaxSold team member Dan scored the best brand costume award as a MaxSold super-hero! MaxSold employees are super-heroes for taking a big burden off of the shoulders for clients downsizing or settling an estate, so the costume was right-on!

MaxSold Halloween

At MaxSold, we support a number of charities by way of auctions. MaxSold raised over $20,000 for the Limestone Learning Foundation, and had a lot of fun at the Gala put on by their amazing fundraising team. On a related note, over $31,000 was raised for Bibles for Missions just this year!

Now onto our October 2015 Highlights…
