C.H. Livingston offers a variety of estate services including live auctions, online auctions, phone bidding and absentee bidding. We also host on-site estate tag sales. Our auction house is located in downtown Columbia, South Carolina.
We understand the complexity and sensitivity that comes with managing estate services. That experience has instilled in us the importance of being fair, honest, and knowledgeable. These are the principles we have built our business upon and we believe this is what customers deserve. Our knowledge of antiques, art, and collectibles, as well as contemporary furniture, is one of the greatest assets to our clients.
One of the most important decisions that you will make when considering estate services is the company that you choose to manage your estate and the sale of your goods. At C.H. Livingston, we are a family owned and operated business that is committed to providing you with highly ethical service and a skilled knowledge of art, antiques, and collectibles.
Owner Chris Livingston is a South Carolina board certified auctioneer. He has a passion for traveling and finding the very best true period antiques and unique one-of-a-kind pieces.
We offer simple commission rates and a complimentary evaluation of goods prior to consignment. We do not charge photography or insurance fees on items consigned. We will also fully market your goods or estate to the public.
