Leigh Keno and Leslie Keno, co-founders and co-CEOs of Keno Brothers Fine Automobile Auctions, each have decades of involvement and vast understanding in the arts and antiques auction field, as well as an individual passion for fine automobiles, which led to the creation of an automotive auction house that marries the most exquisite live auctions with sophisticated online capabilities provided by Proxibid. Keno Brothers selected Proxibid as their online partner because of its commitment to risk management and wealth of knowledge in bringing more than 12,000 sales events to online buyers each year, providing a trusted online experience that increases buyer confidence.
“Our partnership with Proxibid enables us to share our enthusiasm for fine automobiles with collectors across the globe,” said Leslie Keno. “Only Proxibid delivers the level of security and support online buyers require for the purchase and sale of vehicles at the caliber we’re offering in this auction. Buyers can trust Proxibid to deliver the same level of care and integrity as they would experience if they attended the live auction.”
Proxibid features the industry’s most comprehensive risk management system―a sophisticated hybrid of proprietary technology and third-party partnerships managed by an in-house team of experts―designed specifically to facilitate high dollar transactions like collector cars, giving assurance that purchases are secure. This level of security, in conjunction with Keno Brothers’ proprietary catalog software, which provides background information, history, sales data, videos, news articles, social mentions, and other helpful information about each vehicle, ensures buyers have a heightened level of confidence when purchasing online.

This auction features vehicles of the highest quality, and we are excited to share them with buyers located throughout the world.”
Combined with Proxibid’s industry-leading and secure transaction engine, the Keno Brothers’ proprietary catalog software creates a comprehensive visual tool set that is extremely rich for online buyers, and which generates a high level of consumer confidence in Keno Brothers and the collector cars available for sale.
“In the current marketplace, one usually needs to research a car’s background on their own, from a wide variety of sources. Our system aggregates a variety of data from around the Internet that is helpful in considering the acquisition of a fine automobile,” commented Bradley Farrell, COO of Keno Brothers and developer of the proprietary process.
“Our clients now have a one-stop solution for gaining both general and specific information about each car, along with sales trends, PPI and other key data points that can inform a positive purchase decision. We want the online auction experience to closely match our live event, so buyers can feel comfortable and informed whether they bid online or join us in person.”
