When we decided to sell our home and contents we weren't sure which way was the best way to go, that was the easiest for us and sell everything at one time. We first thought about getting a Real Estate agent, but we would still have had to get rid of all our contents. We had friends who decided to auction everything off with an Auctioneer. We contacted Eastern Shore Auctions, Mr. Willie Benton, and he came out to our home and talked about what he could do for us with our home and contents. We decided to go with an auction of the home and contents. He set an auction date and he took pictures of our home and posted it on his website and within a week we had an offer that met our expeditions. The buyers wanted to settle as soon as possible. Next thing we knew we had a settlement date of August 31st and here it was around the end of June. Mr. Benton came to us and said there are a couple of options, one being he could move everything out of our house and sell it at a live auction or we can do an on-line auction. We talked about it and decided let's go for it. Mr. Benton began the process of taking many pictures and he worked very hard in getting everything on-line by the date he thought would give us a good period of time for people to view everything. We ended up having 477 items listed on the website. Mr. Benton got everything on-line and he asked us to review the items and description of the items and he did an outstanding job listing everything. Mr. Benton and his wife Susan worked hard to make sure we were satisfied with everything they had done. Mr. Benton said he wanted to have a preview night for people to come and look at all the items he had listed on the on-line auction website. The on-line auction went very well and the only reason I think it went well was because of the huge effort that Mr. Benton put into listing the items. I would highly recommend Eastern Shore Auctions to anyone who wants a friendly person to work with and one who cares that you are satisfied. He and his whole team are to be commended for their caring way they satisfied their customers.

Dear Mr. Benton, In February 2019, we were bequeathed the contents of a large home and pole barn. Selling this huge quantity of antiques, furniture, collectibles, tools, and household items was daunting, to say the least! During the time-consuming process of selecting an auctioneer with whom to work, we interviewed six candidates and decided that your company, Eastern Shore Auctions, would best suit our needs. This decision was made easier by the professional manner in which the contract was offered and negotiated. From the very beginning, you and the members of your team were very forthright and honest in guiding us as we made the many required decisions. Your recommendations were of exceptional value to us and helped us avoid the many pitfalls that we might have otherwise experienced. You, as well as your wife, mother and other family and staff members who helped out, were so very hard-working, courteous and helpful, well beyond any contractual requirements and expectations. We had never experienced an on-line auction and were somewhat concerned that we would not receive the fair value of the thousands of items you photographed, described and placed on-line for bidding. We were delighted that the total received through this process even exceeded your estimates of net proceeds to us. Your flexibility after the sale allowed us to finalize the process in days, not weeks. My wife and I highly recommend your services to anyone and would be more than pleased to speak with any prospective client about your services and those of Eastern Shore Auctions. Allan and Beverly Gorsuch

Our experience with Willie at Eastern Shore Auctions was smooth and seamless. We asked him for a really quick turn around since we had a settlement date to meet and he happily obliged. The entire process was ran like clockwork. We live 2 hours away and only needed to be onsite for the initial meeting and Willie handled everything remotely from there on. He and his team are very professional and we were very pleased with the outcome of the auction. I would definitively recommend Eastern Shore Auctions to anyone looking to sell home furnishings and personal property!

I contacted Willie after my husband passed away in September, my husband was an avid tool collector! Willie came out and did a fabulous job! He worked for weeks to get things ready for auction plus there were more things in the house! Brady (my husband) had a large barn that were two stories, and three sheds! It was a massive sale and Willie and his family worked constantly getting things ready! I can't say enough about how he got things done. He is a good person and he treated me good and had compassion for all of what I was going thru! I just can't say how much I appreciate all that he and his family have done for me!

We recently sold the residence and home contents of a loved one through Eastern Shore Auctions. From the initial meeting to receiving the final check, we dealt with a man that was honest and upfront about every aspect of the transaction. Willie is truly a man of his word in dealing with his clients. He lifted much of the burden of dealing with the estate of a loved one who passes. Now that settlement has occurred and auction winners have picked up their treasures, we feel that a page has turned in dealing with our loss. If you find yourself in a similar situation, you will not be disappointed that you chose Eastern Shore Auctions to help with your resolution.

I wanted to thank you and your associates for the outstanding service you provided. Being entrusted to handle a friend's estate was overwhelming and your team's efforts to stage and auction the contents of the home made my job a lot easier. His estate is going to charity and the amount generated was much more than anticipated. Thank you so much for all your help.

Our family contacted Willie Benton at Eastern Shore Auctions following the passing of our parents and the need to dispose of the contents of their home. Willie was recommended by numerous people who shared that he was not just honest but also extremely compassionate during what often is a very difficult time for families, which was true for our family as well. Willie was the PERFECT choice! He was extremely responsive and forthright with information as to the auction process and with the "market" at the time. When we moved forward with the auction, he was organized and did an incredible job staging the contents, keeping us updated the entire time. We couldn't have been more pleased with him and with his staff. The most touching moment was when we went to our parents' house the day of pick-up of the auction items. We knew it would be bittersweet. When we approached the door, the staff all came out and met us with hugs! We absolutely would rate him, his staff, and his company as 5 of 5 stars!
