I recently attended one of your auctions in Franklin Pa at the VFW. I frequent auctions in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. I want you to know how enjoyable your auction was. Your staff was one of the most professional group of people that I have encountered. Their friendly personalities and helpfulness made the auction very enjoyable. Thanks to you and all of your staff.

Recently drove to Franklin to take in an auction. This was in response to one of his runners telling my NeshannockTWp friends of the quality, professionalism, and friendly environment at Pennington. It was fun. The runners were great, even carried out the stuff we bought to our vehicles. No other auction does that. Always upfront and helpful, that is Mr. Pennington.

We recently sold our house and contracted with Pennington Auctions to sell all our household goods, because we’re retired and downsizing. I knew of Jeff from previous auctions I’d attended & liked the way he & his staff interacted with people. After doing some due diligence and talking to others who used his service, I made the decision to work with him as well. From the beginning, Jeff made us comfortable with the fact that he was interested in doing his best for us. During the whole process Jeff kept us updated, discussed expectations & througly explained the methods he uses to make every auction a success. Jeff’s staff is phenomenal. They were always there when they said they would, worked hard the whole time, were professional, courteous & friendly. They staged the property to maximize the alloted space, but allowed potential buyers to inspect it. Jeff stayed in contact with me during the auction & updated us as to the progress. Overall, we felt the auction went extremely well. I would recommend Pennington Auctions to anyone thinking of, or needing to have an auction.

My sisters and I recently engaged Jeff Pennington and his crew to auction the contents of our family farm in Emlenton. We stressed for some time over who to hire and how exactly to stage the auction since we had little auction experience ourselves and had heard many horror stories about bad auction results. With the recommendation of a relative who had been to some of Jeff’s auctions and after talking with Jeff, we decided to hire his team. Boy, what a fortunate decision!! We couldn’t have been happier with the result. This was a two day auction selling farm house contents on one day and outbuilding contents and farm equipment on a second day. Jeff’s crew organized and “packaged” all sale items in a very professional way. They were very easy to work with and went out of their way to accommodate the family’s wishes. The whole crew is very experienced, personable, hard-working, and above all, honest. Their detailed handling of all aspects of the auction was greatly appreciated during a very stressful and emotional time for my family. It’s refreshing to find someone who says what he’s going to do and then does it…no surprises!

Jeff Pennington’s March 19, 2016 Public Sale in Franklin, Pa. was the 1st sale I attended of his – but it won’t be the last one !!! Jeff & his entire auction crew functioned like a very experienced & well-coordinated team – each knowing what their part to do to keep this huge auction flowing smoothly. They maintained the interest of the crowd by pulling items from all areas of the room & provided key info on each one to the bidders – history, markings and condition – flaws included. Jeff’s sense of humor & interaction with the audience added to his great clarity & speed in “calling” this auction. Very good prices were realized . It was a wonderful experience after a 5 hour drive to get there 🙂 Thanks Jeff!!

Recently, my brother and I were tasked with liquidating our father’s 40 year collection of everything old. We were fortunate enough while growing up to have been taught that not all auctioneers are equal. Before his death, our dad had Jeff Pennington carry out an auction for him. It was the only one that he ever had done while he was alive but our father was happy with the job that Jeff did and gave his “stamp of approval.” A positive review from Dad was no small thing and it gave us the confidence to have Jeff handle the estate. Throughout a total of 10 auctions, Jeff Pennington and his team of helpers carefully organized, packaged, and transported the majority of the items to the Franklin Knights of Columbus hall. Two of the auctions were held on site at two separate properties. Where most auctioneers would have sold “box lots” just to get through the mountain of merchandise, Jeff took the time to separate, research, photograph, and clearly advertise the hundreds of items that had to be sold. The thoughtfulness of the sale order kept the interest of the buyers and kept them coming back time after time until the job was complete. Beyond the sale, I can say that Jeff and his crew are some of the most trustworthy and enjoyable people to be around. At a difficult time, the respect given to the sale and to the memory of the person who amassed it made the process much easier to carry out. All that my brother and I can say is, Thank You Jeff and team!

During the summer of 2012 a friend recommended Jeff for the estate auction of my aunt who had recently passed away. Never having been involved in an estate auction previously I was anxious about how things would be handled. Jeff and his team could not have been more professional and considerate while preparing for the auction and the day of. I was impressed with how detailed and organized they were. I truly appreciate their assistance during this difficult time.

My cousin died suddenly and I was faced with the job of handling his estate. That was the bad news. The good news was his law firm recommended Jeff Pennington’s auction services. Never having to face this process I was worried about how to manage the task. We met with Jeff and I soon learned that when he said “don’t worry, we can handle this” he meant every word. Jeff’s goal is to “meet or exceed our customer’s expectations by working diligently, thoroughly, and honestly.” Jeff and his crew met that goal from the first encounter until the auction was history and the paper work finished. One of Jeff’s strengths is being a great communicator. Throughout the entire business I never felt that I didn’t know what to expect or what was happening. He was prompt at returning my calls or answering my text’s. Jeff and his staff were always kind, considerate and positive. I definitely recommend Jeff Pennington Auctions and the services he provides.
