Collector car brokering and purchasing, specializing in high net-worth clientele
Purchasing of Collector Cars
Private Collection Management/Storage
Muffy’s addiction for all things “wheeled” began as a very young child with an infatuation with motorcycles - much to her parent's dismay. In her teens, the ideal weekend night involved window-shopping at car and motorcycle dealerships, as well as attending local car shows with friends.
Always a bit eccentric, her love for cars and bikes has been evident throughout her life: from matching her dress to the turquoise ’59 Thunderbird she went to prom in, to obtaining her motorcycle license, followed by a racing license. After a successful career as a paralegal in busines, real estate, and sports/entertainment law, she broadened her horizons by accepting a position as the Operations Director/Paralegal for a Phoenix - based auction firm ASAA, wherein she was tasked with revamping the company and streamlining the model for rapid growth and franchising. As a result of her leadership, vision, planning and execution, the company expanded globally.
From there, she established a collector car dealership with the goal of combining her two passions: cars and auctions - purchasing cars, coordinating light restorations, and selling them at auction on a full-time basis. Among her noteworthy accomplishments, she holds a world record for the highest hammer price for a 1957 Ford F-Code Fairlane Skyliner Retractable sold at auction for $330,000. She also privately brokered several exceptionally rare pieces, including the original $4.6M Batmobile. Her dealership specializes in catering to high net worth and celebrity clientele, and services include collection expansion and liquidation, appraisals, representation of clients assets in an auction consignment liaison capacity, and collection storage and vehicle concierge services.
In 2013, Muffy was asked to open a retail facility for Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions. The successful dealership is located in Scottsdale, and compliments the auction division. Among its offerings is a full service center, detailing services, collector car insurance/financing, merchandise sales, and a rotation of the finest collector cars available for purchase.
In 2017, Muffy joined Ritchie Bros' Auctioneers - the largest auction company in the world - to spearhead its entry into the collector car auction niche. The company has since acquired Leake Collector Car Auction to use as a foundation, and boasts the largest online collector car bidder database in the world.
When she’s not playing with cars, Muffy enjoys riding motorcycles, target shooting, and donates her time as a professional bidspotter for charity auctions.
