US RealReal expands White Glove Service making consigning luxury goods easier
The RealReal, the leader in authenticated luxury consignment, today announced the expansion of its white glove consignment service into 20 US cities. Established in 2011, the white glove service is an in-home consulting and pick-up service where one of the company’s 50+ luxury managers will go to a person’s home, consult with them on what to consign and then offer estimated price ranges for those items. The items are then transported by the luxury manager to one of the The RealReal’s warehouses. The service is free of charge and virtually eliminates any work or hassles for consignors
“Everyone is so busy today and The RealReal’s goal is to make it easy to sell your luxury items. Our experienced luxury managers provide an effortless and private way to sell items from the comfort of your home. We are excited to now offer this service in Seattle, San Antonio and Austin,” says CEO Julie Wainwright.
The RealReal’s white glove service originated in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles and has expanded into over 20 cities across the USA. The RealReal has 4 million members and has sold 1.5 million luxury goods to date.
The RealReal is the leader in authenticated luxury consignment providing the largest selection of authenticated luxury items including men’s and women’s fashion, fine jewellery & watches, and fine art & home. Consignors earn 60-70 % of the sale price and items sell quickly. Its free in-home pickup service is available in 20 major cities across the US. The recently opened fine jewellery & watch valuation office in New York City offers people free valuations on their pieces from the company’s professional gemmologists.
