To whom it may concern;

I have known Mr. Thomas Bruhns both on a personal and professional level for the past Thirty five years. I was an Antique and Fine Art dealer in Denver Colorado for over twenty five years and had many occasions to purchase and sell Antiques and Fine Art during the years I was in business. I consider Tom to be one of the most knowledgeable Antique and Art appraisers I know. I have always found him to be honest, and fair with all his business dealings. He has an impeccable reputation across the country among dealers and buyers alike. My husband Lawrence Gelfond has used Tom on every occasion that arises in his position as a Forensic accountant. He is often appointed by the Courts as the Trustee for very large estates. One such estate was unusually large with thousands of items. Mr. Tom Bruhns handled the Auction in a most professional, time efficient and organized manner! He has conducted numerous Auctions on Estate sites as well as at the Auction house. He is a pleasure to work with! I will continue to enjoy his auctions on a regular basis!

I would welcome any inquires for recommendations.

It’s my honor to recommend and support Bruhn’s Auction Gallery.  I have attended your auctions for over twenty five years, furnished several of our homes, business and clients properties with your collection of auction items. I plan my weekend trips to Denver around your auction dates. I especially enjoy your specialty auctions or at homeowners or business site auctions. They are organized and professionally handled.  Kudos to your staff and yourselves.

To Bruhns Auction,

Bruhns Auction helped me in conducting an estate sale for an estate of mainly tools, cars, auto parts and assorted outside “stuff.”  The staff kept all appointments and the set up was efficient and professional.  The accounting for items sold was completely accurate and the payment was timely within the terms of the contract.  Did the estate receive “top dollar” for everything that was sold?  Probably not, but the auctioneer accomplished the goal of emptying the property so we did not have to haul away or clean up a single item at the end of the day.  Professional and hard working group of folks.

I had a great experience last summer auctioning several of my pieces with Bruhns Auction Gallery, and have attended several auctions since. Everyone is professional and honest; and the auction itself is run in a very upbeat, lively way, so it’s fun to be there.

Bruhns Auction has a flare for presentation which helps with the selling on line. Everything is  correctly catalogued and professionally presented. Items I have sold through Bruhns auction has been promptly paid. Thank you.

Bruhns Auction Gallery has the best  quality antiques available . Tom is very knowledgable and professional . I have been pleased with all my dealings with  them.  He has followed through with our agreements.


If you’ve never been to an auction before, this is a great one to start with. Be prepared to sit amongst the sharks though as I am pretty sure this is where most of SoBo’s antique stores get their loot. Whether you want a desk lamp, a library table or a 4 piece antique furniture suite including armoire – this auction has it all. They do have snacks like popcorn and nachos which you will see many husbands quietly munching on. I scored a very nice Arts & Crafts library table and tiffany style floor lamp for under $200, a deal I am proud of to this day. Make sure you come in a truck or van so you can haul your treasures away.

Great Experience! Professional, friendly and honest! I would recommend Bruhns Auction whether you are buying or selling.
