Maggie Susse, Studio Art Major, Class of 2006, works at Christie’s Art Auction House in New York City as an Administrator in the Trusts, Estates & Appraisals Department.
“I support two Account Managers so my job is very diverse,” she writes. She proofreads appraisals, binding and mailing them to clients or the department that requested them, and helps with writing excerpts that are featured in the catalogues. She writes clients to keep them informed about sales and how their property has done, and coordinates the process from start to finish by having the work shipped to Christie’s, placed in a specific sale and assuring that the items are priced correctly with the appropriate reserves and terms. After an item sells, she makes sure that the clients receive a settlement check for their property.
