Markets change over time. Many objects highly demanded in the 1970 and 1980's, began to witness decline in the late 1990s. Since 2007 demand has significantly plummeted. Older generations passed on and prices for brown furniture and common collectibles began to plummet. New generations have different needs and priorities. Regardless clients need to be properly informed to make good decisions regarding trust management and decision-making and down-sizing etc. 


 Often value is irrelevant when liquidation is the intended objective. It is best to find out quickly one way or another. Novotny is familiar with most object types, common market levels and market options (relevant to demand for specific objects)

  • Your city and state
