ATLANTA, GA.- Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, one of the nation's leading auction houses, will open its newest location in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia this spring.

In May 2018, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will open at 668 Miami Circle in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. The facility will accommodate local auctions as well as full-service resources for appraising property and participating in global auctions through the firmıs Chicago headquarters.

The new location will not only be a resource for Atlanta but become a hub for the entire Southeast."
