Why Heritage Exists: Our Motive, Our Mission and Our Values
Collecting valuable objects uniquely rewards owners with beauty, history, personal satisfaction, and more. Unfortunately new collectors often overpay and become disillusioned, while inexperienced owners and heirs routinely receive too little when selling. For collecting to become a more credible and widespread vehicle for wealth creation, the playing field between experts and novices must be leveled.
Our Motive is...
We believe deep, unbiased information can and should be available to all, transactions made more transparent, trading friction reduced and the learning curve made less steep and less expensive for new collectors and sellers. Therefore...
Our Mission is...
to be the world's most trusted and efficient marketplace and information resource for owners of fine art, jewels, rare collectibles, and other precious objects.
and Our Values are...
• Integrity — Honesty and fairness must define every facet of our business.
• Transparency — We embrace clarity and openness, enabling clients, partners and coworkers to make informed, confident decisions.
• Expertise — Our success depends upon providing clients with the best possible advice.
• Efficiency — We focus on helping clients, partners and coworkers save time and resources.
• Innovation — We continually make our services more convenient and useful.
