Good to own an auction Company

David Gooding, whom I met over a decade ago at a Christie's automobile auction in Tarrytown NY he was running, has built a lovely auction Company of his own. In 2015 he has sold over a fifth of a billion dollars worth of high-end automobiles:

Gooding and Company reported its 2015 year-end auction sale total of more than $206.5 million with a 90% sell-through rate for 305 lots sold, averaging over $675,000 per car. The 2015 year-end total is the highest ever for the auction house.
“We are both thrilled and grateful for our most successful year here at Gooding & Company,” said David Gooding, President of Gooding & Company. “The prices realized confirm the increase in demand in the collector car market for both pristinely restored, concours-quality examples, as well as highly-original vehicles. We would like to thank our customers for their support and patronage, and look forward to continuing to provide our clientele exceptional offerings in 2016.”
An all-time high for Gooding, the auction house sold 44 cars over $1 million and realized 58 auction records in 2015 for a variety of collector cars, heavily weighted by examples from Ferrari and Porsche. Additional top results were realized for automobiles from Mercedes-Benz, Bentley, Packard, and Rolls-Royce.
The top Gooding and Company 2015 sales were the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider that sold for $16,830,000, the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta ‘Sharknose’ Speciale that sold for $16,500,000, the Le Mans-winning Rothmans 1982 Porsche 956 that sold for $10,120,000 (a double world record for both the marque and a 956), the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider that sold for $7,700,000, as well as the 1960 Porsche RS60 that sold for $5,400,000.
