What Our Customers Are Saying About Marlin…

 

Customer Satisfaction…

“People I spoke with afterwards who were there (and even people who weren’t and only heard about it) had wonderful praise for the entire event, especially how great the art was and how professionally everything ran.  We credit you for helping us to put on this great fundraising art auction.  From the start, your encouragement and patience was so helpful.  You were organized, supportive and very accommodating.  I can’t imagine having done the event without you.  Which leads me to what your tag line should read (something like this):  “You gotta have art… and it’s gotta be with Marlin Art!”

- Nikki, Jewish Community Center, MA

 

Our Professionalism…

“My wife and I attended your fundraising art auction, at the Mount St. Mary Academy as we have in the last five years. We have attended many fundraising art auctions in the past and found the variety of your art offerings, framing, matting and opening prices among the very best.  It was a great art auction fundrasier! Thank You.”

- Charles, Mount St. Mary Academy, NJ

 

Corporate Clients…

“ It was nice to speak to you last week and schedule our next Marlin Art Auction.  Although there was a fair amount of skepticism by some people at MBNA, the auction proved to be the top fundraising event for our regional office.  I enjoyed working with Lee, our Marlin Event Specialist, and appreciated her support and feedback to our many “expert” suggestions.  Through several conference calls, Lee learned more about our company, philosophy, and charity mission and offered advice based upon her past experience.  This was critically important to our ultimate success. Can't wait for our next profitable fundraising art auction!”

- Darryl, MBNA, OH

 

Fundraising...

“ Another successful fundraising art auction!  This is our ninth consecutive year with Marlin Art and we have no other fundraising at St. Mark’s that is as enjoyable, stimulating or profitable as the Art Auction.  Our treasurer estimates that over the nine years our profit has been well in excess of $100,000!  Not bad for a church of 150 families.  Although fundraising is our main objective I really want to thank you for making the day fun!  Your energy is stimulating.  Your knowledge of the art is educational and your style allows everyone to participate and enjoy themselves.  What I hear most frequently after the auction is, “Can’t wait til next year!”  Additionally, people who know art and art prices are amazed at the bargain prices received at the auction compared to prices at art galleries.  We appreciate you, Marlin Art, and the wonderful relationship we have developed through the years.”

- Rev. Stephen Rozzelle, St. Marks Episcopal Church, NJ

 

The Marlin Team…

“On behalf of Hadassah, I want to thank all of you for the team effort on our behalf in making our art auction fund-raising a rousing success.  Sol was his usual charming self… and his sincerity always instills confidence in the bidders.  I know that all of you behind the scenes know what the big sellers are and have a feed-in on that aspect.  And Lee is never too busy to take my calls and listen to my concerns on our end.  We certainly have learned much in the ways of promotion from her.    She was right about the man who delivered the pictures.  He got everything set up quickly and knew how to direct the young men we had as helpers… but then, everyone you’ve ever sent did the same.  If you ever need a recommendation , just let us know.  Hadassah will sing Marlin Art’s praises.”

- Letty & Carol, Hadassah,GA

 

Nonprofit Clients…

“This was the first time that the our PTO decided to do a fundraising art auction, and we were quite elated at the success of the event. You made this event move along so smoothly and you were there every step of the way.  We highly recommend Marlin Art to anyone who is considering a fun way to make money for his or her schools or organizations. Every PTA or PTO should host a Marlin Art fundrasing auction!  This is one fundraiser we will use for years to come.”

- Robin, Parent Teacher Organization, CT

 

Art Selection…

 “Our alumni and friends really look forward to our annual auction because it is a fun event at which they can purchase art work and benefit the Alumni Association, too.  I am really proud of the works I have purchased and know that many of our alumni and friends are very pleased with their pieces as well.  You did a really good job bringing requested art this year, too.  We have rescheduled our “23” annual Art Auction for next February.  Marlin Art is the only company we have ever used.”

- Geri, Columbus State University, GA

 

Value…

“ Family and friends who attended told us they loved the art.  The emphasis on value helped stimulate participation in the auction.  One attendee went on line after he went home and discovered the gallery prices for works’ he had just purchased were much higher than he’d paid at the auction.  The claim of the tremendous buyiing power of Marlin Art seems well justified.  Thank you for providing such a creative way for organizations to raise funds.”

- Don, Choir Director, MA

 

This says it All...

My wife and I attended the first Friends of the Arts Art Auction 2 years ago, run by Marlin Art.  We had no idea what to expect since it was our first Art Auction of any kind.  We have always admired art and wanted to decorate our home with art, but we were worried art auctions would be filled with “stuffy” people and items out of our price range. Well, I am happy to say we were wrong on both counts.  The night was amazing, the art selection was fantastic and very affordable.  I can’t say enough good things about Sol and his team at Marlin Art.  They were very informative; Sol delivers a story behind every piece and the prices are more than fair.  I couldn’t wait until MS FOA had the next fundraising art Auction with Marlin Art and counted down the days until this recent one.  Sol didn’t disappoint, he once again ran a great show and we bought some very nice pieces.  Although I am still an amateur, I feel I have learned so much about art and always have a great time.  Thank you so much to Mount Sinai FOA, Sol and his art auction fundraising team.   Let the countdown begin, hope to see everyone at the next auction in less than 730 days…
