Samantha Mitty

Client Liaison & Auction Administrator

Sam joined the Bellmans team in 2013 and looks after referred clients and handles email enquiries. She ensures the office runs smoothly during auction weeks.

She joined after a twelve-year career as Head Groom for a professional polo player, spending time in New Zealand, the USA and Europe. When Sam moved back from the US, she chose Sussex because of the polo, but soon her lifelong love of anything old inspired her to work in an auction house.

When not at work, Sam loves walking her dog and visiting old buildings and castles. She has also defined her taste in antiques and has a keen interest in natural history and quirkier art and furniture lots.

Career Highlight: being the telephone underbidder for an Ottoman panel that sold for £39,000.
