About Us

Our Mission

With both Houston estate sales and appraisals, as well as our work state-wide, our mission is to provide outstanding professional service to the client! We are committed to providing you with a professional liquidation and to assist in eliminating any of the stress normally associated with an estate sale.

 

We always approach each estate sale with integrity. We hold the core beliefs of responsibility and professionalism. Our expertise and attention to detail, along with our honesty and integrity, results in a successful sale and happy clients.

Our Story

For 47 years we have specialized in personal property appraising in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and in Texas since 1992. We have a Texas Auctioneer's License. We have worked extensively with Sotheby's, Christie's, Swann Galleries, and Bonhams & Butterfield. We also served as Sotheby's internet representative. For twenty years we owned our own auction gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1986 we opened an art gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, as an addition to our auction company. Moved to Houston in 1992 to be a partner with Camilla Blaffer in Blaffer / Robinson Gallery. In 1993 we formed a new company Judy Robinson Gallery, Inc. This company now specializes in appraisals, Estate Tag Sales, and sales at private treaty. Among our clients are banks, C.P.A.s, trust companies, individuals, businesses, estates, institutions and attorneys who need appraisals or wish to liquidate personal property. In May of 2006, we became the Texas Regional Representative for Bonhams & Butterfield Auction Company for Business Development. Bonham's closed its Houston office on January 15, 2009, and Judy Robinson Estate Sales & Appraisal Services reopened its doors.
