‘Jeffrey S. Evans is the former president and senior auctioneer of Green Valley Auctions, Inc. (1979-2008) and the head of Green Valley’s specialty/catalogued auction division (1995-2008).
How Jeffrey actually got the family business from his father can be seen in this vintage photograph from 1964. While he was still a senior in high school Jeffrey became sole owner of Green Valley Auctions, which had been founded in 1967 by his parents Leighton and Kathryn Evans.
Effective January 1, 2009, after thirty years of ownership, Jeff and wife/co-owner Beverley Evans withdrew their catalogued auction division from Green Valley Auctions and launched their new company, Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates, Inc.
From their state-of-the-art auction gallery, built in 2009 within walking distance of the old location, Jeff, Beverley, and their expert staff conduct quality catalogued auctions of Americana and fine antiques. Read our 2009 Press Release.
The company logo is inspired by the decoration found on the circa 1800 Shenandoah Valley of Virginia hanging cupboard that brought the highest bid price in the history of Jeff Evans’ catalogued auctions. Boldly painted by Johannes Spitler in red, white and blue, and featuring a six-point stag bounding diagonally across the door panel, the cupboard achieved a record price for American painted folk art furniture when it sold on November 13, 2004 for $962,500.
