Josh Levine, the owner and founder of J. Levine Auction & Appraisal, is a certified auctioneer and all-around storyteller. From a young age Josh was raised to appreciate antiques and collectibles and became enamored with the history, stories and lessons from these items. Growing up he tagged along with his parents to hundreds of auctions, antique shows and co-ops and inherently learned the business and how items moved around the world and effected the lives of different owners. Later, armed with a degree in Accounting and Business Management, an Auctioneer Certification from the Pennsylvania State program and a passion for communicatinons, Josh began his career in Quakertown, PA nearly 20 years ago.
After a few years experience in the auction business and seeing the amazing potential in the Southwest, Josh decided to tap into the enormous treasure of stuff that's migrated from the east coast to the west over the past few decades. Now in Scottsdale, AZ where his business more than triple in size in less than 5 years, Josh started expanding his skills and sharing his stories. With experiences such as finding a Jackson Pollock, auctioning Wyatt Earp's gun, investigating interesting rarities, learning the psychology behind collecting and more, he began to be invited to guest auctioneer, emcee events and give informative speeches. These days, Josh continues to expand his knowledge and seek out new opportunities!
