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.

Hi Jeff! It was great meeting you at your Union Twp. sale yesterday. I was very impressed with you & your staff and will be recommending you to everyone I meet in need of an Auction Service. Great Job!

The best Auctioneer out there!

After years of collecting and acquiring things we decided we needed to downsize our lifelong accumulation of Antiques, Collectibles, and various home goods. At first the thought of liquidation seemed intimidating and daunting. That is until we turned everything over to Jeff. To say the whole Auction process from beginning to end went smoothly and completely stress free is an understatement. Jeff’s years of experience and knowledge was apparent throughout. As a Seller, we could not have asked for anything better. Our level of satisfaction would be off the charts. If you are looking for an auction Company, look no further. Jeff and his crew are the hardest working out there. They commit 100% to making sure they maximize the return on the items you entrust to them. Lastly, a secret to their success is creating an environment that also considers their loyal base of Buyers. Attending a Jeff Pennington auction is always a rewarding experience for all.

Thank you Jeff.
You truly are the best!

Jeff and his crew did a fantastic job of clearing 70 years worth of “collecting” after my father passed. Three buildings full of machinery, tools, hardware, wood and various odds and ends were organized, categorized and displayed for sale. The process was painless for our family, primarily my mother, who wasn’t quite sure what to do with all the stuff. We would highly recommend Jeff and company if you ever find yourself in need of someone to help dispose of life’s accumulations. A great job.

Cheryl Hovis November 28th, 2018

A friend of mine referred me to Jeff Pennington.
She herself went through a period of downsizing,
after her husband passed. It was the very best advice
I could have received. I called Jeff,sent him some pictures of
antiques my husband and I had collected over our 47 years
I had know idea where to beigin but I was put at
ease after our first visit. Jeff was thoughtful enough
to question how long I had been a widow, he didn’t want
me to be hasty in making this very life changing decision.
From that moment on everything went without a hiccup.
Jeff has the very best crew! They were helpful, understanding
And professional in every aspect. They were all very accommodating
And friendly.
I would recommend JeffPennington auction to anyone who is
contemplating downsizing.He and his crew take care of
everything, sorting, set up, lunch, tear down and clean up!
I’m thankful that I was referred to Jeff and his great crew!

Thank you to Jeff and his crew for the ease each of you provided to my family as my mother transitioned from her life of 74 years in western PA to her move down south.

I was inspired by the level of insight Jeff and his crew brought to this delicate situation. Jeff’s level of professionalism in speaking to my mother and each of us, her adult children, was coupled with sensitivity and intuition. Jeff has a clear and precise vision catered to the circumstances presented. At no time is one left wondering what is next? Or How are we going to accomplish such a massive undertaking? All of this is washed away by the expertise of Jeff and each of his crew members. Everyone who works for Jeff has a heart for this line of work. They take all the worrying, guessing, and stress from the family and they work their magic. Pennington Auctions truly views these situations as people’s lives.

We are truly grateful to Jeff and his crew, thank you. I would ONLY recommend Pennington Auctions. So stop looking, and call them, TODAY!

Jeff recently handled a live auction for our family. We are grateful to Jeff and his crew for an enjoyable day and highly successful sale. I would recommend Pennington Auctions to anyone in need of professional auction services.

Shawn Bell September 3rd, 2019

My father recently passed away and Jeff Pennington was recommended by my aunt who runs The Rolling Bistro – a food truck that serves the public at his auctions. Jeff was very easy-going and his staff took care of all the preparation of all the goods prior to the sale. We had a pipe attachment break during the process and my father’s basement flooded Jeff’s staff took this all in stride. Dealing with an estate is something my brother and I never had experience with and Jeff helped make the process much easier. I would certainly recommend his auction service to family and friends.

Kirk Hines September 11th, 2019

Jeff and company recently did an auction for our fathers estate. The entire process was handled professionally by Jeff and his crew. I highly recommend them.

Joan Dawson October 10th, 2019

Jeff and his crew handled our challenging auction needs in September, 2019. Friends had recommended him and they were absolutely right. His style and personality are important. His command of the situation show professionalism. He was totally responsive to our unique situation. Sometimes it is difficult to dispose of a household, but with Jeff walking you through it your mind is at ease and the results are positive.
He is very honest and friendly. It was well advertised and all the details have been carefully handled. You could not be in better hands.

Zac Gates January 3rd, 2020

Jeff and company assisted me with an enormous auction undertaking in November 2019. His communication, professionalism, and expertise are second to none! He is a true man of his word, which is rare in today’s day and age. If I had any questions or concerns about the overall process, Jeff was always available day or night & responded immediately. His staff was phenomenal and took great care in loading, shipping, and setting up my items for the auction. I can’t thank them for enough for the outstanding job that they did and would recommend Pennington’s services to anyone in the future. Pennington exemplifies the highest standards of integrity and excellence in the auction industry! Thank you so much!

Deborah Henry May 9th, 2020

Jeff and his staff assisted us in selling household goods, furniture, collectibles, etc. for my Aunt’s house. It was a big job and the online auction was the way to go. We could have never netted the monies we did doing a sale ourselves. Jeff is a kind, truthful, understanding man, very personable and went out of his way to help make things easy for us. He was always in touch with us on all happenings. He worked with us in every aspect and handled everything with great care. Jeff and his team did a fantastic job for us and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Maybe some day we can do business again. Thanks again Jeff for a wonderful job; it was a pleasure working with you.

Libby Stover December 9th, 2021

Jeff Pennington was very professional and personal in handling my father’s online estate auction and the live auction of his home. Jeff along with his team were efficient and quick to organize all the memories. He showed the utmost respect while enjoying the stories we related as we went. He was quick to answer any questions from the family all through the process. I highly recommend Jeff Pennington Auction Service for any of your needs.

Andrew Fiscus December 14th, 2021

I was so impressed with the way Jeff and Gabe got basement cleaned out together and they even had two auctions for me!!! Both guys are so professional especially after my husband had passed away Jeff would always say “Are you doing ok?”-what a heart he has!!! And Gabe is so professional and kind as well while he worked here I was very. impressed!! It was nice to be able to get my huge basement cleared out, it was difficult at times coz I knew how much Ron enjoyed working for Jeff (as well as other auctioneers)and then when I contacted Jeff he didn’t hesitate to say YES Ill do his auction. I just cant thank them enough for doing the auctions and even Jan came down to help open up the safe Ron had in the basement coz I couldn’t -my hands were too shaky!!!LOL I definitely would recommend Jeff and Gabe to anyone who wants an online or even a live auction coz they both know what they are doing. To this day Jeff still contacts me just to check in on my which I think is so very. thoughtful-Thanks YOU Jeff!! And while they were here we would talk about Ron working at Jeffs auctions and some of the funny stuff he did as well which helped lift my spirits-Ron always enjoyed working for Jeff and Gabe-THANKS AGAIN GUYS YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
