All items to be offered for sale remain within the home until they are sold and removed by accepted buyers. BERGFELD's does not ever take possession of a client's property and we do not own a gallery.

Based on your specification of items that are available for sale, we schedule appointments with selected likely dealers to come to the home to view these items. Written bids are summarized and reviewed with you for your acceptance or rejection. The accepted dealers pay you, the client directly and in full.
