WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Online Only: SHIFT/Monterey
“There is no other company that could have provided me with an online auction solution with the service and outreach that RM Sotheby’s has. I originally consigned my Ferrari Prodrive to their Monaco auction and with the COVID-19 outbreak, RM quickly pivoted and suggested we sell the car at the SHIFT/Monterey online sale. Not only did they attract an international audience as they would have for an in-person auction, they achieved a record-price. I could not be happier with the results from the RM team.” - Seller of the 2001 Ferrari 550 GT1 Prodrive

“RM immediately understood the opportunity to sell the MOMO 356 RSR, during a pandemic, sight unseen, in an online auction, and called on all their colleagues to help formulate a winning plan. It was a seamless experience that was executed with professionalism at every step with my best interest in mind. RM Sotheby’s delivered on their promise and the digital hammer dropped at $858,000. You are not going to find a better team anywhere.”  - Seller of the 1960 Porsche MOMO 356 RSR Outlaw by Emory

Online Only: A Lifetime of Porsche Memorabilia Part I & Part II
“Since I decided to substantially reduce my collection of Porsche memorabilia, selling it on RM Sotheby’s Online Only platform was an easy decision. I had participated as a buyer in RM’s first two such auctions, and I liked what I saw. I contacted my RM specialist, it all moved ahead smoothly. I traveled to Auburn, IN to work with their staff on creating lots, catalog descriptions, and photography. I was really impressed with their people. The broadscale marketing campaign went extremely well. I do not believe there were many hobbyists/collectors in the world who didn’t know about this RM auction. The results speak for themselves – they were excellent. I was very pleased with the entire program.”  - Seller of the Online Only: A Lifetime of Porsche Memorabilia Collections

Online Only: THE EUROPEAN SALE FEATURING THE PETITJEAN COLLECTION
“I was advised to enter the car to RM Sotheby’s Online Only auction. Although uncertain initially, the team at RM executed perfectly from photography, delivery to safe storage, right through to the online bidding where serious players came in. Just like live auctions, the experience selling online really got the heart pumping. It was managed seamlessly.” - Steven Ward, Seller of the 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera Cup

Online Only: DRIVING INTO SUMMER
“I have bought and sold through many auction houses, including watches and art, but this was my first online selling experience. RM brought out the white gloves and dealt with all elements of the process, including taking into consideration a contactless arrangement, and handled it with the upmost respect. Not only did they give the car the time and attention it deserved, watching the sale from a far and witnessing the vigorous bidding up until the very end, I had no doubt they brought in the interest they promised, and it set a record price.” - Seller of the 2003 Ferrari Enzo

The Taj Ma Garaj Collection 
"This auction was an emotional process for our family as we celebrated our father’s love for Porsche and the place in our hearts that the Taj Ma Garaj holds. RM Sotheby’s conducted an event that was so much more than a successful auction… they celebrated John’s humor and creativity as well as his attention to detail and passion for collecting only the very best of the best. From day one, they came in and took care of everything from start to finish, which speaks to the experience and skill of the RM team. Throughout the entire auction, the smiling caricature of John as the Taj Ma Garaj genie was behind the podium, and we’re sure it took place exactly as he would have wanted, smiling and enjoying every bit of it!” - Hillary Dixon West, daughter of the late John Dixon

The Guyton Collection

From start to finish, the entire RM organization has done an outstanding job and the exceptional results are truly a result of their hands-on approach and teamwork.

Most importantly, they approached every step of the process with a proper understanding of Fred’s vision and passion for his collection and we’re delighted that the collector car community now shares in the legacy of his beloved automobiles and prized collectibles.” - Mrs. Beverly Guyton, wife of the late Mr. Fred Guyton

What Our Clients Say, Sam Pack Collection

The Sam Pack Collection
“When I made the decision to pare down my collection, a lot of people asked me who I was going to use. Without hesitation, I said RM Auctions/Auctions America. In my opinion, they are the best in the business. I chose them based on years of respect and trust, and a relationship built on interacting with them as both a buyer and a seller. From their organization and process to their follow through and execution, the level of service they provide is unmatched. They are incredibly client-focused, and the fact that this weekend's sale represented their 30th private collection in 35 years of business speaks volumes.”

The Dingman Collection
“RM Auctions is to be commended on a fabulous job showcasing the Dingman Collection in this weekend's auction.

I felt RM respected and valued each piece, which allowed us to go through the letting go process of the Collection itself, which was so near and dear to my husband's heart. I know Michael Dingman is smiling, knowing his treasures not only went to those who will continue the historic journey, but that his family was treated with such dignity and care, affording us the opportunity to calmly participate throughout the two-day process.” –
