Stuart's Musings

Georg Jensen Jewelry

Georg Jensen (1866 - 1935) is considered one of the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Born in Raadvad, Denmark, Jensen began his training in goldsmithing at the age of 14 in Copenhagen. He went on to study sculpture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Jensen's training in metalsmithing together with his fine arts education enabled him to combine the two disciplines in the tradition of the artist craftsman.

Initially, Jensen established his reputation as a designer of flatware, hollowware, and jewelry. He later became a renowned international designer of elegant and refined silver creations in the modernist style.

Tel: (508) 347-7190 Fax: (508) 347-5420

Stuart Brody, president of Showcase Antique Center, Inc., has added real estate agent and auctioneer to his extensive and impressive list of credentials.
"Most people think real estate auctioneering has to do with distressed properties," said Stuart. "That is only one portion of the market. More and more people are turning to real estate auctions to sell their homes or commercial properties. Auction is ideal for inherited property, or when time is of the essence, such as in divorce settlements. Contents may be included in the auction as well."
And the benefits are numerous!

  • Auction reduces the time the property is on the market.
  • Auction eliminates numerous, unscheduled showings.
  • Auction creates competition among buyers - auction prices can exceed the price of a negotiated sale.
  • Auction takes the seller out of the negotiation process.
  • Seller sets the terms and conditions of the sale.
  • Seller knows exactly when the property will sell.
  • The buyer pays the commission when a 7% to 10% buyer's premium is used. The high bid plus the buyer's premium becomes the total selling price.
  • The seller pays no commission when a property is sold...only marketing costs are charged.

Affiliation: Weichert Realtors

To provide more options for his clients, Stuart affiliated with Weichert Realtors in Auburn, MA as a real estate agent. Now Stuart can conduct negotiated sales for both residential and commercial properties in Massachusetts.
