Tom Roberts has been passionate about antiques and collectibles since childhood. His grandparents were instrumental in cultivating this knowledge. Growing up in northeastern Ohio, Tom apprenticed with other antiques dealers and estate liquidators at a young age, showing a natural talent and developing a keen eye. He quickly came to be respected as the area’s leading authority on tableware! It was this early start in the antiques and collectibles field that built Tom’s impressive depth of knowledge, which was further honed by a two-year stint at Replacements Ltd.
Tom has hosted sales at various locations across the United States, ranging in scale and scope from the estate of a dealer and collector of fine American brilliant cut crystal, to executive mansions and humble farms. His 14+ years of experience working on estate tag sales shows in everything he does!
By working with many different liquidators, Tom has learned many different methods and techniques, with this knowledge he has developed an extremely efficient system to organizing, staging, and hosting tag sales. HE GETS THE JOB DONE!
His friendly, energetic, no-nonsense, approachable personality makes him easy to work with, both for clients and buyers.
Tom’s reputation for quality sales usually attracts a healthy crowd of buyers looking for a vast array of merchandise from antiques, collectibles, jewelry, furniture, and household merchandise.
