~ About Michael ~

Hello, my name is Michael. Thank you for visiting my “About Me” Page. When you finish reading this short summary about me and my past experiences, you’ll see that I’m a thoughtful, honest, and respectful person who has a passion for helping others.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’ve been in sales for over 20 years now. Within those 20 years I was also a volunteer firefighter, an ice hockey coach for a popular traveling kid’s team in the Northeast, and a personal fitness trainer. In the midst of all this, I started learning about selling online through eBay and the success its brought to so many people around the world. Success from selling random “Cool Stuff” from around the house, to opening up huge online stores that market products to the entire world. I found this to be very intriguing.

For most of my life, I’ve always been into collecting steins, rare minerals / rocks, stamps, coins, sports cards, antiques, collectibles and new technology. I not only love my toys & collectible items but am also very meticulous about them and truly have a passion for everything I own. I’ve been in sales my whole life and have a profound interest in making people happy, and have always lived by the motto, “Life is About Helping Others!”

Starting my own online and estate sale business has been an awesome experience, so far. We really appreciate all the Positive Feedback and Testimonials We’ve Received from some of our buyers and sellers. This has made us more and more interested in consigning items and selling them for our customers through private auction houses that we’re affiliated with and performing estate sales, all the while offering great customer service, and building new customer relationships with people who share the same values.

The hard work and great customer service that we provide at Michael’s Fine Art & Collectibles, LLC has been acknowledged through selling on eBay. We were evaluated by eBay in 2010, in which they promoted us to Top Rated Seller and Silver Power Seller within the same week! This was a huge accomplishment and makes us excited and proud to be of such good service to our valued customers! We no longer sell on eBay due to the fact that their platform is no longer practical for selling some of the unique valuable antique items we consign. We now sell most of our items through various different upscale auction houses that we’re affiliated with, as well as, to private collectors, and other interested end buyers, through our partner All American Auctions, LLC aka Antiques Estate Buyers. We use our large database of over 15,000 local buyers within the Tri-state area, social media, as well as, utilize our affiliates expert advice to maximize values & increase your visibility, at the same time providing you with transparency & security. Visit our Estate Sales Page for more information.

We’re now in the process of coming up with new innovating ideas to improve our auction business, making it more accessible to people with many new services and products for everyone to enjoy. We are now partnered up with, “All American Auctions” in Islip, New York. All American Auctions is licensed, bonded and holds professional certifications and memberships with The American Society of Appraisers (ASA), The Certified Appraisers Guild of America (CAGA), The National Auctioneers Association (NAA), and the New York State Auctioneers Association.
