Who We Are

A NATIONAL LEADER

SINCE 1961
auctioneers liquidators realtors appraisers

With the advent of the Internet and faster communication, Cricket Hill Auctioneers & Liquidators was founded in 1994 by Bill Jarema. Mr. Jarema, who began his career as a flea market vendor, local wholesaler and auctioneer's apprentice, quickly realized the potential of this new medium-a company providing such services would be able to broaden its client and customer base and facilitate transactions, while still maintaining excellent service he thought. Mr. Jarema was right indeed.


Headquartered in New York, Cricket Hill is now one of the leading consumer goods, food service, industrial equipment and machinery, and real estate liquidation, auction marketing and appraisal firms in the country. The firm has grown to service over 700 accounts in their acquisition of closeout, excess, surplus and overstock consumer goods; and to conduct, or arrange in partnership with other auctioneers, liquidation, real estate and benefit auction marketing specialists, over 750 events and transactions in the New York metro area and the Northeast, and an additional 1500 events and transactions nationally every year. Despite this volume, Mr. Jarema maintains a policy of a very personal approach, supervising and coordinating each and every event and transaction. The firm is most known for its ability to act more rapidly than any other company of its kind in liquidating wholesale and retail inventory, fixtures, equipment and machinery, from entire businesses, warehouses or stores of any size, from anywhere in the country, as well as its highly innovative and proactive commercial and residential real estate auction marketing tactics which are executed with great attention to detail and precision.


Our staff includes some of the country's most established, skilled and well recognized auctioneers, liquidation, real estate and benefit auction marketing specialists, whose combined experience of over 1080 years has served over 135000 clients dating back to 1961. With now more than 50 offices in many of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, Cricket Hill is poised to become the leader in failed business disposition and appraisal, inventory and equipment redistribution solutions, and real estate and benefit auction marketing in the 21st century.
