What People are Saying About Callie Baber Auction Co.

When Mom moved to assisted living and wanted to sell her home, we had to go through her lifetime of memories. After she had everything she wanted, I had the rest with no clue what to do. Chris Martin suggested your company and that was the perfect answer! I needed HELP with what to keep, what would sell, what to give, and what should just go to the dumpster. You calmed my nerves and realistically went through everything with me. Thank you Callie and Shelly for making a difficult task actually FUN! I have & highly recommend you and your entire crew!

When I began to prepare for retirement I sought out Callie Baber’s Auction Service who offered to provide the help I needed to pack and prepare for my household sale, and especially to attract the buyers. Callie, followed through with all she said she would do including help with the preparation, advertising, acquiring the rack wagons, auction plan, auction help, clerking and parking. Callie helped clean up following the sale, her bookkeeping was accurate, and we settled up in a short time. I appreciated her hard work, and high quality and efficient help so much, I hired Callie again to auction off my shop equipment.

The shop and equipment auction was a little more complex having a little more at stake. The advertising required more effort and knowledge of the most efficient internet sites to participate on. We had a huge crowd, on a very cold snowy day, and the sale was a success. Again the bookkeeping was excellent, the help she provided was top notch, and settling up was a breeze. She did her job completely and without any effort on my part. That meant a lot to me. I would recommend, Callie Baber Auction Service, to anyone wanting to have the best sale possible. Callie Baber, has had a lot of experience with all types of auctions.
