Chris Harmer Kurt Schau H/S Home About Us Next Auction Selling Philatelic Links

Striving to be the best, not the biggest!

Oregon Operation

Our offices are located approximately 15 miles from Portland Airport. All auctions are held on a weekend at a convenient hotel within shuttle distance of the airport.

Bob Beall manages the operation and works in close cooperation with the California operation.

Our Plan: We hold 2 to 3 auctions a year exclusively in Portland for our Northwest clients with the viewing and auction at a convenient hotel. Viewing at our office is available by appointment. Periodic brochures, will be sent to you to keep you abreast of what is happening with the office.

Our policy, as with our California operation, is to pay our consigners on the 40th calendar day after the auction, no ifs, ands or buts!! Feel free to drop by our office and say hello to Bob or give him a call if you have any questions or comments. We look forward to assisting you in your buying or selling needs.
