Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen,

We just wanted to take a moment to send an email to congratulate you on a great auction! This is the first of your auctions that we've attended but, as the saying goes, it won't be the last!!!

We especially enjoyed your brisk pace, your attention to the right level of detail about the items, and your ability to make an auction fun... one of our primary concerns when talking about auctioneers. So many auctioneers take way to long to get the bidding started because they seem to want to walk down the dollar scale from where they want to be versus where the bidders want to start. You repeatedly got the action started quickly by moving the dollar amounts down to the starting point. We also liked the fact that this prompted, as you often said, "an auction" where people in the room were energized by the action of the bidding. There were no long silences while you waited out the bidders; you let them set the dollar amount and, in almost every case, went on to get a very reasonable bid.

In short, we enjoyed ourselves and, by the energy in the room, consider that others did as well. Great job! Our daughter and son-in-law (Karen and Erik Kampmann) said it was worth the drive... they were right. We'll be back!!!

We have been attending Boyd Auctions for ten years since relocating from New York. Our home is filled with beautiful things acquired at their auctions, and we have also used their appraisal services with great satisfaction. Most impressive is their consummate skill in conducting their auctions with integrity and knowledge, while making it a fun experience. It's always been a treasure hunt at Boyd Auctions!
