“The additional revenue earned by Russo and Steele in Monterey in 2016 show that despite a particularly conservative marketplace, the segment we hold remains strong. Again like in Scottsdale 2016, we have exceeded 2015’s results and are further evidenced that the real value of the Russo and Steele’s brand as one that is committed to producing growth, no matter external factors may exist. It also articulates that our enthusiast driven approach of “cars and camaraderie” is striking a cord with both collectors and spectators alike”, comments Russo and Steele CEO Drew Alcazar. “For us, it remains about generating excitement not only on the block, but prior to the sale which as proven by our results in Monterey, maximizes market value. Additionally, by continuing to offer the highest quality collector automobiles with the most integrity available anywhere, it demonstrates that we are also genuine automotive enthusiasts and that creates a true feeling within our client base, where we mutually view each other more like members of the extended family. As with all the events we produced in 2016, these results unquestionably show that mentality to not only being an honest one, but also a successful one as well. We really have to point to the support of our wonderful bidders, consignors and attendees and say thanks for what was Russo and Steele’s most successful auction season to date. We can’t wait to do it again in 2017!” Next auction Aug 17-19 2017.
