Making the decision to sell valuable firearms, sporting collectibles and related items is often difficult. Once made, the options are almost always confusing. Working with Sportsman’s Legacy ensures that the full market value of every item is determined prior to its presentation on the national market. This maximizes return and often reduces the time required for sale.
The entire process is handled by Sportsman’s Legacy President Dwight Van Brunt. With over 30 years of directly-related experience, Dwight has a track record of outstanding performance. For this reason, organizations such as the Boone and Crockett Club, the Wild Sheep Foundation and the Dallas Safari Club Foundation, in addition to firearms industry professionals, collectors and estate representatives have selected Sportsman’s Legacy as their marketing partner.
“Professional representation becomes especially important as values increase.”
Unlike most local dealers or representatives of national chains, Dwight is a nationally-recognized authority in this field. An avid collector, Dwight has also been a market participant for most of his life. His knowledge, professional relationships and experience, along with the encouragement of his piers, prompted him to establish Sportsman’s Legacy and offer his services to those needing assistance.
Professional representation is especially important as values increase. It becomes critical, as there is much more to properly determining the market value of items than simply consulting a pricing guide. Moreover, once value has been established, the best and often only way to conclude a sale is by exposure to the national market.
There are also times when just determining market value falls short, most generally when a client’s tax consequences must be considered. For that reason, Dwight has fulfilled the considerable requirements of becoming a Member of the International Society of Appraisers. This unique professional qualification is the cornerstone of understanding and preparing documentation that may be required by an estate, insurance company or the Internal Revenue Service.
Sportsman’s Legacy clients are ensured of unequaled professional representation, the benefits of incredible category knowledge and a guarantee of complete satisfaction. We look forward to being of service.
