Testimonials

 

“It was a pleasure working with you on my two contractor’s equipment and small tools auctions as well as my farm equipment auction. All three sales exceeded my expectations and were conducted professionally and seamlessly. I would highly recommend Barr Davis to anyone in search of an auctioneer.”  RWR 1/20/15

 

I would like to thank you both for everything you did to sell my parents' home. In today's busy world, you took all the headaches out of this process. Thanks again, Tracie.

 

I was very pleased with the professional way Steve and Jim handled the sale of real estate and personal property at the estate sale. The sale was fast moving and I thought they really worked the crowd to get us the best price they could achieve. --Fred and Ruth Martin

 

I was pleased with the services of Barr-Davis Auctioneers. They were professional and courteous and expedited the auction. Deciding to have an auction put finality to burdens and clutter in my life. It was a relief when my house sold at auction something my REALTOR could not accomplish in 8 months. --Anonymity Requested

 

Thank you for the excellent service you and your company provided us on the sale of an estate property in West Chester. As executors of the estate we felt competing pressure to try to sell the property quickly while obtaining a good sale price in the interest of the beneficiaries. The auction method did allow us to satisfy both those objectives. We definitely think that if we had sold the house through conventional real estate methods we would have felt pressured to accept a much lower price and not realized the true market value of the property. I’ve told the story of our first real estate auction experience to a co-worker and his comment was “Why isn’t real estate always sold this way?”  I think this comment sizes up our experience very well. --Anonymity Requested

 

I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did on the auction of my mother’s house and personal property. The advice you gave and the service you provided in carrying out a very successful auction was truly outstanding. You worked hard for every bid and the proceeds were higher than my family and I expected. I would call on you again and highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a hard working team. The auction and all of your help exceeded our expectations. --Anonymity Requested

 

Thank you for an outstanding job auctioning off my father’s estate. Your efficient and professional manner made the sale go very smoothly. --Ted Verbiski

 

We are writing to thank you for the GREAT job that you both did in auctioning the estate. The day was a huge success and far exceeded our expectations. Everything went the way you said it would. Your guidance through the entire process was extremely helpful. You made this difficult time much easier for us. We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to auction their property. Thanks again --Maryann and David DePietro

 

Good job. It always pays to hire the pros. Thanks. --Kevin R. Osborn

 

I appreciate everything you did to make the auction of my mother’s property successful. From the start my husband was impressed with your professionalism when you arrived the site for the first already familiar with the tax parcel information and the housing market in the Oxford area. You immediately proceeded to take measurements and pictures and lay out a program for publicizing the sale which included newspaper advertising color brochures and two open houses as well as listing it on your web site. It was amazing to hear how many hits the property received. Your courteous explanation of the advantages of an auction compared to attempting to sell in an already overloaded real estate market were helpful. However it was comforting to know that you could become the real estate agent should the property not sell at auction. Your example of a home in our area that did not sell at auction but was sold in a short time to a buyer who had attended the auction was encouraging. I had steeled myself for a similar outcome but thankfully the property sold above our reserve figure. A friend recommended Barr Davis and I would be happy to do so as well. Sincerely Pamela L. Bogus

 

To all of you nice people that contributed to the huge success of the sale of personal property and real estate auction at 201 Octorara Trail Gap PA 17527. Thank you all of you for all you’ve done which Fred and I certainly will never forget you all. I sing my praises to everyone I talk with and tell them how helpful you all were and still are May the good Lord be with each and every one of you Fred Sr. & Katherine A. Kenworthy

 

Just wanted to say “Well Done” to you both and thank you for your assistance and expertise over the last several months as we prepared for the sale of our sister's house. In spite of the slump in the real estate market we were pleased with the amount the house brought at the auction. The advertising through the website especially for the old coins really got the word out to the collectors. It certainly paid to deal with the best auctioneers around. -- Karen Gallagher & Family

 

I cannot begin to tell you how please and grateful I am for your services After the completion of my property auction just a few days I can t believe that I did not contact you sooner. Over the past 3 years I’ve jumped from realtor to realtor only to find myself unsuccessful in selling my property. When I decided to go with an auction I was a little uneasy at first wondering what would happen if my land did not sell. In the end I received double what I expected to get on the property and could not be happier with my decision to use you. You handled my scenario very efficiently and in such a professional manner. The process was painless from my end you took care of everything from the marketing to the legal arrangements and I didn’t have to lift a finger All this I received at half the cost I would’ve paid a traditional real estate agent. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone looking to sell. --Jacqueline Beck

 

Thank you for an excellent job during perhaps the worst market in the last fifty years. As a lawyer and broker I was initially skeptical about the auction method. You overcame my doubts and exceeded my expectation Despite my being at a distance you handled the transaction with ease. Thanks again for a job well done. Best regards --Susan Libman

 

I wanted to thank you for the great job your people did for me at the auction conducted at my commercial property last week. I have to admit conducting an auction for the very first time I found myself adding up what most likely would not be auctioned off the day of the sale. But when a bottle of Round-up weed killer I had been using to kill weeks around my property was auctioned off I became a believer. Your team auctioned off every single item in my building enabling me to move forward with the sale of the property without the complication of trying to dispose of any unwanted items. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a competent and professional organization in need of the services that I did. Great Job Jeff Ciardi

 

I am very pleased at how well the house auctioned and that you got the price that you did. I fully expected to have to drop our expected price and I m glad that did not happen. I am also pleased the buyer was someone who really knows the area and had a realistic awareness of the value of the homes in that development area. You guys really know your business and can make things happen. Once again-great job and kudos to you and your staff. Cheryl Bonner

 

The work that Barr Davis Auctioneers did for our auction went beyond our expectations. They got great results and it was a pleasure to work with Steve Jim and their team. Abner & Esther Smoker Family

 

Thank you for your expertise and professionalism in selling our home. Our home was listed in the MLS with a Realtor for over a year with no action. My wife and I moved to Florida and are in our 90s so we wanted the sale to happen as soon as possible. Thanks to you taking over the sale with an auction, I received a fair price for our home with minimal expenses for your service. We can in all good conscience recommend you to anyone interested in selling their home or property. Dominic Repice
