In the sophisticated realm of fine art, where passion meets precision, Marlissa Gardner and her team at Emillions Art have distinguished themselves as leaders in a global art consultancy known for its commitment to helping art collectors navigate the complexities of the art market. Since its inception in 2014, the company has evolved from hosting an award-winning exhibition at Art Monaco to becoming a trusted entity in consulting and dealing in both contemporary and classical art, including Old Masters and Modern Masters. Headquartered in Naples, Florida, Emillions Art has cultivated a formidable reputation, grounded in trust, integrity, and the highest standards of quality.

Reflecting on Emillions Art’s journey, Marlissa Gardner emphasizes the fundamental approach that has driven the consultancy’s success: “Our greatest asset is how we are able to orchestrate every aspect of this on behalf of the client to achieve their goals. Combined with passion, independence, and authority, we refer to this as helping clients attain the ‘next level of art and value’.”

The company recognizes the increasing acknowledgment of high-value art as a distinct asset class, which has opened new opportunities in financial markets and technologies, such as the use of bonds and fractionalized investing. Emillions Art stays at the forefront of these trends by partnering with wealth managers and financial institutions, effectively bridging the gap between art and investment.

In terms of strategic acquisitions and sales, Emillions Art excels in managing the intricacies of the art market, particularly when acquiring and selling high-value art. Gardner highlights the importance of discretion and strategic marketing in these transactions. “The strategies I employ are wide and varied, they have one principle running through them—ensuring that the client and their needs are in lock-step with me at every stage of the deal,” Gardner explains. Whether acquiring a new masterpiece or positioning an artwork for sale, Emillions Art ensures that every step is taken with precision and is tailored to meet the needs of their clients.

A significant part of Emillions Art’s philosophy involves enhancing the intrinsic and market value from improving documentation, exhibition placement, and the use of financial instruments. Gardner and her team help collectors with validity in their artwork and bring true value forward and upward where possible. This proactive approach ensures that collections not only represent aesthetic and personal tastes but also stand as robust financial assets.

For collectors concerned with legacy, Emillions Art helps clients with their approach to estate planning and gifting. Working in concert with tax, trust advisors, and family offices, Emillions Art helps clients navigate the complexities of estate management, ensuring that their collections achieve lasting impact and continue to reflect their visions and values across generations.

Looking forward, Emillions Art is committed to expanding its services to meet the evolving needs of ultra-high-net-worth collectors. This includes leveraging new technologies and expanding their educational offerings through seminars, webinars, and experiential events, all designed to elevate the collector’s knowledge and success in the art market. “We have evolved and continue to evolve our services to open up wider routes to value through partnerships with private clubs, wealth management professionals, as well as expanding our networks across the art market and embracing new technology,” says Gardner.
