We recently had the opportunity and sincere pleasure to work with Willie and Susan Benton of Eastern Shore Auctions for the sale of the contents of my father's home and out buildings filled with over 50 years of furniture, collections, keepsakes, antiques, sporting equipment and outdoor equipment and machinery. They were personable, hardworking, and very accommodating from the beginning to the end. Their knowledge of maximizing value, organization and grouping for sale was amazing but not unexpected ! Willie and Susan's attention to detail resulted in a process and completion of a daunting task that exceeded all expectations !! We highly recommend Willie and Susan Benton and their Eastern Shore Auction team ! Again, thank you !!

I was "her person." She counted on me to handle her affairs with the same organization, class and dignity she embodied throughout her life. I chose Eastern Shore Auctions, Inc. to handle the sale of my cousin's estate. It was my best decision. Willie and Susan Benton stand firm on the principles of honesty, communication, reliability and care. If there was a question, I had an answer within 24 hours. When there was a problem, the Benton's were there to support me, and never more than an email or a phone call away. On the day of the auction, the Benton's and their extraordinarily hard-working teammates, many of whom are family members, ensured an atmosphere of professionalism and respect. It was evident the bidders enjoyed the experience and their purchases. At the end of auction day, my cousin's home and its contents were sold, and the property was left in pristine condition. The Benton's and Eastern Shore Auctions, Inc., hold a very special place in my heart. Should you find yourself with the life-changing responsibility of handling your loved one's estate; without hesitation, secure Eastern Shore Auctions, Inc. as your auctioneer!

I had been to some of the auctions that Willie and Susan had done and I was impressed with the care and concern they showed for the sellers. There is more to a sale than just physical things, there are parts of people's lives that are being separated. Memorabilia they will part with, homes that will be past on to someone else. This was me when my brother passed away. I contacted Willie, we met at my brother's house and he and Susan took care of everything. They are just good honest caring people, nothing else needs to be said.

Thank you for all the hard work you put into taking care of my aunt's estate. I know there was a lot to pick through to see what could be sold and of course, it was not the coolest part of the year when you had to do this. I am thankful that Suzanne suggested Eastern Shore Auctions because I was at a loss initially. I can say that if I ever need an auctioneer again, I would definitely choose you guys.

In the fall of 2016, my husband, Bill, contacted Willie Benton of Eastern Shore Auctions to help my sister and me to organize our parents possessions and the family home for an auction sale. Willie and his wife, Susan, met us at the house. We found them to be compassionate and caring about our family memories, but also informative, practical, and realistic about the business aspects of the sale. Each step of the process was fully explained. Willie and his team were respectful, efficient, neat, and organized. The sale items were well documented in online and print advertising. After organizing our items, Susan gave us a quilt she had discovered that was personal and not meant to be sold-this small caring gesture displays the heart and integrity of the Benton family and Eastern Shore Auctions. We were well pleased with the attention to detail. Willie told us he would treat our family's possessions like they were his own and would work hard to get the best prices for our treasures. I highly recommend Willie and Susan Benton and the team of Eastern Shore Auctions to help anyone in need of organizing and/or selling an estate. Eastern Shore Auctions worked hard for us during a difficult transition time in our lives. We have remained in touch with Willie and Susan and would not hesitate to call on them for any future needs. If anyone needs further info, please contact Willie or Susan for my number and I will be happy to speak with you. Sincerely, Sharon Taylor Allman (Norma Lee and Johnny Lee Taylor estate sale Pocomoke,Md)

On March 24, 2018, Willie Benton of Eastern Shore Auctions conducted an estate sale of farm equipment for my family. Eastern Shore Auctions came highly recommended but I was not prepared for the level of professionalism, thoroughness and consideration Mr. Benton demonstrated. He advertised extensively to give us the best exposure to potential buyers, both in and out of the area. Willie remained very hands on throughout preparation for the sale, guided presentation of the equipment, and came to the farm on several occasions to advise and support us. He spoke to numerous potential buyers prior to the auction to answer their questions about the machinery being sold and spent several hours at the farm on the day before the auction to meet with people interested in seeing the offerings beforehand. As a result of Mr. Benton's efforts, we had a very successful sale. I particularly appreciated his honesty and concern for us and our interests and situation, and the obvious high standards by which he conducts his business. I would not hesitate to use Eastern Shore Auctions and Mr. Benton in the future and, in fact, I would consider no one else.

We appreciate the time and effort put into the preparation for the sale, and were very satisfied with the results. Thanks again. Bobby & Barbara Shockley
