WOW is all I can say... but let me provide more. Absolutely fantastic. I had been dreading this but the care and concern for me by
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and her team were fantastic. My wife had just passed and it was an emotional period for me.

was like a family member in her concern for not only doing the sale in my best interests, but also for my emotions during this challenging period.

Appointments were kept and the auction went well. Unfortunately, most items sold at the low end of the estimated value or less, with a couple of exceptions. Advertising was handled well and payment was received timely. Overall the experience was good.
There was an issue with an unsold lamp that was missing the shade and harp when we went to pick it up. After no action for weeks, the owner offered to replace it with an shade that was too small and not the silk fabric of the original. When we indicated that that was not satisfactory, he declined to do anything at all. He justified this by say that he never received a shade with the lamp, when we know it left the house with one. He said it was the fault of the moving company, his agent WHICH HE CONTRACTED FOR THE MOVE. For this reason, I would advise taking movies or pictures of everything as it leaves for as a record.

Our father died and left a large home bursting with.......everything. Every closet, drawer and cupboard was full and every surface had something on it. Left to our own devices, we would have taken everything to Good Will as we were overwhelmed by cleaning out this home and figuring out where to sell things. Lucky for us,
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
have a lovely shop down the road filled with select antiques and vintage goods. We heard they also did estate sales and contracted with them to have the house cleaned out. When they were done-the house was completely empty, and we made an unexpected profit.
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
were professional, yet empathetic and willing to accommodate our needs. We agreed upon a split of the proceeds from the sale which was more then fair, and gave them the keys to the house. They have a great crew who cleaned, sorted, priced and displayed everything. They also advertised heavily, which was included in their contract. After the sale, they arranged to have all the unsold items removed (they have a large network of people who re-purpose things so not many items went to waste).They handled everything and send us a check. It was an easy, seamless experience, not to mention pleasant as
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
are both very engaging. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone needing direction on how to handle the liquidation of a home.

The sale went well.
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
understands that these events are very emotional but families need to dispose of items. The only reason I didn't give a complete A rating was that after the sale there were still a lot of items left and the young men who worked for her did not handle them the best way possible: I had not expected to have so many books left and they were just destroyed. Had I realized how hard they were to dispose of (I had not expected the local library friends to refuse to take most of them for their book sale) I would have worked harder to find them a home.
Also, a washing machine was damaged when they were hauled into the garage for pick-up by someone who wanted it but had to repair it. I also had to get a plumber to repair the connection. And the house was not well cleaned. Other than that I would recommend working with Mrs. Gafner.

I am extremely impressed and pleased with
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
& Appraisals The sale went well and Sandy was professional, knowledgeable, prompt and personable. The time and effort she put into the sale went well above our expectations. She even put in a few hours the next weekend to help us sell a few items we had left over, asking nothing in return. Her expertise identified a painting (that we may have thrown out thinking it was junk) as a named artist and possibly of high value. It is being sent to Sotheby's for further evaluation and appraisal. I highly recommend Sandy and

to anyone considering having an estate sale.

went through the attic and the basement of my house. It was so full you could basely walk through. He sorted through everything and took junk to landfill and took saleable items to auction. Three weeks after the job was finished I received a very nice check in the mail from the auction house. Not only did I get rid of the junk I made enough money to pay for

's services with a good amount left over. When he was finished the place was left clean and neat. He is honest, efficient, friendly, and was pleasant to have in my house. His workers were equally personable and efficient. I would highly recommend

, and would certainly use his services again.

Illness forced us to drastically, and quickly, downsize the accumulations of 60+ years of marital accumulations. It quickly became obvious that we could never meet the deadlines..just too many tasks to perform. Someone suggested that we call
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
for his suggestions. He walked through it all with us, thoughtfully sharing his views and developing conclusions...giving us the benefit of the important issues which eventually
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
us all to the final best approach. His initial determination was that there was not enough auction level items to warrant an auction and thus something he would not do. And we'd be left with a lot of stuff to discard, donate, or dispose of. Nevertheless, he continued to go through possible scenarios. Out of that effort on his part a plan evolved which allowed us to meet that impossible deadline. He had organized & conducted "estate" sales in the past and came up with a plan that integrated the "estate" sale paradigm with the whole thing, pick out those items most proper for on-line sales, and pricing auction quality items at prices he felt sure he could get at auctions and, if not sold at that price he could save and add to one of his upcoming auctions in September, and got us in contact with an individual who would buy all left-over items we could not arrange to have a charity pick up in the end. Thus with very little effort on our part in terms of packing items suitable for donation and arranging a pick-up date, settling on a price for sale of the "remains" which included leaving all areas in "broom-clean" condition and dumping all that was no t suitable for any use, we met the deadlines with ease and due to
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
's global knowledge of these areas, ended up getting more income and incurring less expense than we could have otherwise.

is the kind of individual you will count as a friend by

time he finishes. He is very conservative as well as up-front honest in his manner. He does not play games. He always '"shows up". Nothing seems to derail him. His focus is always on sincere attempts to solve problems. Before retirement my profession involved making such judgements about people.

is
the kind of individual I'd hire anytime.

Went well, job was complicated but
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
handled it well, as they always do, my client was happy. Truthfully I was just estimating the cost above because I am not sure what my client actually paid for the job.

Wow!
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and her team are the consummate professionals. They know their business inside/out. They communicate in detail with regard to their planning for the sale. They spend days organizing and displaying the items to be sold. We were amazed at the amount of planning and effort that goes into preparing for a sale and the marketing of the sale to prospective buyers. Do not be dissuaded by what initially may seem like a high commission percentage-
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and her folks earned every penny of their share of the proceeds from the sale. We consider their fee a bargain given the sheer amount of work that they did and the skill and professionalism with which they did it. In addition, they saved us the hassle of trying to sell a houseful of stuff ourselves or donating it to charity. By the way,
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
and everyone on her team all also extremely nice people and were a pleasure to work with.
I cannot recommend
Antioch Auction Services Provider Name Locked
highly enough. They set the standard for what an estate sale company should be and I believe that they are without peer in central Virginia and beyond. If you are considering an estate sale, do yourself a huge favor and call Canterbury. I guarantee that you will be extremely pleased with their services.
