"Great experience with Mr.Jeffrey and staff! I didn’t make a sell that day but it wasn't because of a lack of effort by Mr Hess, he did give me good advise, which was very appreciated. My friend sold her piece that day. Just a nice feel in the air there. You can tell experts are there waiting to assist. Will definitely return and recommend."

"My wife and I met with Jeff Hess to sell some inherited family jewelry. Jeff was pleasant and spent a lot of time with us, going through each of about 50 pieces individually. He was honest about explaining valuation, and we were pleased with the value. We walked away with a check, and felt that we were fairly treated. I'd return to do business with them again in a heartbeat."

"I have purchased and sold thousands of items through the Hess family with nothing but great service. I have always been directed to Mrs. Hess when I call and have never once received an item that was not as described. Katrina has always treated me fairly and with great respect often offering me items she had acquired prior to auction. The Hess family is by far the best seller on all platforms from Ebay to private auctions."

"I love the Hess group and consider them to be the most helpful, generous and skilled auctioneers that I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Having worked with many auction houses through the years, Hess Fine Art is unique in their broad scope and manner of operating as well as top notch in addressing their customers' needs. Their honesty is 100+%!!!"

"I had an elderly neighbor who was down sizing. We brought in several items for them to appraise and possibly sell. One of the paintings Mr. Hess wasn't sure about so he kept it for a couple days and had someone rsearch it. He was very kind and took a lot of time with my friend listening to all of her stories. He was honest and gave very fair compensation. Highly recommend them for eBay and for jewelry trade-is and purchases. Customer for life!"

"Wow what a great place. I was looking for something unique for my wife as she collects glass sculptures. Katrina Hess showed me a Rollin Karg sculpture. She also made me a amazing deal on it! My wife was very happy with the piece, and I will definitely go back for more! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful."

"I sold a ring to Hess two months ago, received a very fair price. Today, I brought in an expensive watch with a broken pin. Katrina Hess personally made the repair and said "no charge" - Delightful, fast, professional and not looking to nickel and dime you! I will be back for sure!"

"I went to Hess Fine Arts to liquidate and a ring I had inherited from a family member. I had tried to sell it on ebay but had so many scammers contact me, I gave up. I was treated fairly by the folks at Hess Fine Art. You can just tell they know their stuff and arent' bs'ing you. I ended up selling my ring, and with part of my check, also treated myself to a really cool pair of vintage earrings that I know I will rock! Highly recommend!"

"Had the pleasure of dealing with Jeffrey Allan Pittman Hess and Katrina Hess of Hess Fine Art and The Ball Watch Company, in St Pete. As I am an estate buyer, sometimes I come across things out of my league, and yesterday I brought a few pieces in, including high-end watches that I am not familiar with. If anybody needs any jewelry or watch needs in St Pete, the Hess' certainly are the folks to see."
