About

Megan Mahn Miller is designated a Master Personal Property Appraiser (MPPA) by the National Auctioneer’s Association. A graduate of the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree in Art History, Mahn Miller began her career working in nonprofit organizations supporting the arts. In 2006, Mahn Miller joined Julien’s Auctions, an internationally renowned auction house of Rock and Roll and Hollywood memorabilia.  Mahn Miller attended Reppert School of auctioneering in 2009. In 2014, Mahn Miller established Mahn Miller Collective Inc. to provide appraisal and consultation services beyond the auction house.

“Working within the field of auctions, I have insight in the processes, pitfalls, and success that can come from selling memorabilia at auction.  I strive to bridge the information gap between clients, new to the auction process, and auction houses.”

As a property specialist with Julien’s, Mahn Miller worked with thousands of pieces of memorabilia dating from the Golden Age of Hollywood, the very beginning notes of Rock and Roll, to today’s contemporary celebrities. Mahn Miller spearheaded the auction of property from the estate of Greta Garbo, Ann Miller, Bo Diddley, The Edge, Stan Laurel and Bob Hope, as well as property from the lives and careers of Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Charlie Chaplin, James Dean, Johnny Cash and countless others. Whether she is handling a George Harrison guitar or a dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, Mahn Miller’s love of pop culture and attention to detail are evident in her work.

“I love appraising because in combines two of my passions – memorabilia and research. As a student of art history, we were taught the basics of researching and synthesizing information. As a property specialist, I learned how to put that education to use in what can be a topsy-turvy industry. With memorabilia it isn’t enough to know the history of the property you are working with – you need to understand the marketplace, comparable sales and the many venues where memorabilia are sold. I provide this comprehensive expertise to my clients.”
