We are proud to have recently become an official corporate member of the Auctioneers and Valuers Association of Australia (AVAA). The AVAA is Australia’s leading national body of Auctioneers and Valuers of fine art, antiques and collectables, chattels, plant and equipment. AVAA members are committed to providing the highest levels of professionalism in their dealings with clients and as a certified member we are required to demonstrate knowledge, skills, experience and adhere to the Association’s professional and ethical standards.

The AVAA is registered with Australian Securities and Investments Commission with a published Constitution, Code of Ethics & Rules of Conduct and as an official member we can publicly uphold our values, expertise and knowledge with the backing and recognition of a professional industry fields of auction

Leonard Joel is excited to be part of the AVAA and to provide all of our clients with the confidence and assurance that we abide by these principles and that their possessions are in the best possible hands. We strive to uphold these values and look forward to being actively involved in the training and networking opportunities with other auctioneers and valuers from around the country.

One of the key requirements of membership with the AVAA is the ability to demonstrate that all monies received from our buyers are held in trust to be paid directly to our vendors. We are proud to say that we have adhered to this as a strict company policy and by belonging to the AVAA we have had an external review of accounts to verify this process. In addition, Leonard Joel continues to improve our rapid payment process, ensuring settlement to our vendors occurs quickly and seamlessly.

For any formal valuation please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements.
