Dawson’s expands into Central London

Posted in: News on January 29, 2018.


Dawson’s Auctioneers & Valuers, based in Maidenhead, are opening a new Valuation Office at 12 Heath Street, Hampstead, London, NW3.

Operating from part of the former premises vacated by Hampstead Auctions when they ceased trading on January 5th 2018. The new office will be run by Colin Smith, former MD of Hampstead Auctions and Leah Michie, both of whom worked for Hampstead Auctions for over 10 years.

Dawson’s was established in 2016 by Aubrey Dawson, and his business partner Ben Haynes. Dawson’s have taken a new lease on part of the former Hampstead premises which will be refurbished as their central London Valuation and Consignment office and be open 9am to 5pm Tuesday to Friday every week. Dawson’s will continue to hold their highly successful monthly auctions at their Maidenhead Saleroom, whilst the new Hampstead office will be used for valuations, consignments, collections and act as a base for the Dawson’s valuers working for their London clients.

Commenting on the move, Colin Smith said ‘I throughly enjoyed running Hampstead Auctions for many years. Nevertheless, times change, and it became apparent that a wider service, selling art, antiques and furniture would be very beneficial for our client base. We will also be able to offer house clearances, probate and insurance valuations within Dawson’s. I am delighted to join Dawson’s, to be able to offer all these new services to my customers old and new and continue to support our loyal Hampstead community’.

Aubrey Dawson, Managing Director of Dawson’s said; ‘Opening an operational office in the heart of London is a very important step for Dawson’s. It fits into our strategy of having full service satellite valuation and consignment offices in carefully chosen locations, that support our main Saleroom in Maidenhead. Our first task is to ensure all the former clients of Hampstead are looked after. We are delighted to welcome on board both Colin and Leah, who are joining us immediately. Colin has provided a first-class service over many years, and we at Dawson’s look forward to further enhancing the customer experience, providing clients in London with the personal service we are known for’.

Consignments are now being invited for Dawson’s next auction on the 24th of February.
