What People Say About Farmer Auctions
The ABSOLUTE BEST auction co to deal with! I am a buyer and their pick ups are so streamlined and they are so accommodating!!! I LOVE THEM!!! Here’s to many more purchases!
Kim Lang
We were extremely pleased with all aspects of Farmer Auctions. The staff was friendly and caring during our difficult time. They treated the home and items with great respect. Mr. Hines keeps everything very organized, from the cataloging of the items to the pick up of the items. We were very pleased with the money our items brought and the quick payment to us. I would not hesitate to use their services in the future. Top notch.
Becky Martin-Roanoke, VA
I had a family members military collection to dispose of and Farmer Auctions and all of their staff did an awesome job in all areas, from picking up the collection of items, to the research and marketing to buyers, display, photography, and the actual auction. Will Farmer kept me informed of all of the aspects of how the research and grouping of items for the auction was progressing leading up to auction day. We were very pleased with the auction results and truly knew that we had picked the right people to handle this auction. They are an top notch company and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Jeanette Burroughs
We want to THANK YOU for coming to our rescue!!! We knew nothing about the concept of 'Internet Auctions' and when you explained the process to us we knew this was the way to move forward. We felt we would find new homes for our collection of travel treasures, our parents treasures and other items for making life easier and fun!! Little did we realize that we would ask you and your staff to help us navigate through some unexpected hospitalization and recovery. All went very smooth,THANKS due to your willingness to be flexible and understanding during that time. We want to thank your staff that sorted, documented, labeled, took photos of all the items for the auction. Everyone was so professional, polite, helpful, understanding and patient! We want to give a special shout out to 'Shell' who went above and beyond helping me face all the things I was juggling at the time and doing such a fantastic job. It was a pleasure having her stay with us! No doubt in our minds, we picked the right company to work with for the auction. We highly recommend FARMERS AUCTION and have already begun to refer you to others. The Moneta Sommers's March 2019
Art and Jan Sommers-Moneta, VA
Farmer Auctions did an excellent job recently liquidating the remainder of my mother's estate as she relocated from Roanoke to San Antonio. Jarrod and his staff are very professional and experts at what they do. Everything was accomplished as agreed. Our original schedule for selling the house was accelerated and Jarrod adjusted his schedule to make everything happen. Thank you Jarrod and Farmers Auction!
George Kaufman-Roanoke, VA
Jarrod & staff I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you all did for my family. It’s been a year since we moved & at that time I was overwhelmed with the amount of stuff we had accumulated over the years. Thanks to your company it was almost painless.Seven dumpsters & a lot of work on your part we had a great final outcome Thanks so much,
Barbara Bostic-Dublin, VA
Farmer auctioned two adjacent properties for my family, including my late Mother’s house. From our first meeting, through selecting Farmer for the auction, and the successful sale, everything was handled very professionally: communications, various types of advertising, involving (and educating) a local realtor, keeping in touch. Thank you.
Elaine Gott Jackson-Clarksville, VA
We were closing a business and selling the contents. Farmer Auctions provided us several options to accomplish the task. For various reasons it took longer than it should have ( on our part) and Farmer Auctions hung in there and helped us get through the process. We were pleased with the outcome. Our auction ended very close to time they moved to their new location and a few items were packed and moved with them but quickly were returned. I would highly recommend them.
Annette Hodges-Daleville, VA
Jarrod and his team helped me liquidate my family members personal property as we needed to downsize. He also was the Realtor for her home and it sold in less than a week. He explained the services and excuted the plan on time. I highly recommend as they are professional, honest and hard working. He and his team know what will and won't sell. When overwhelmed with all the stuff this team is a blessing! If you need it to go call them!
Lisa Wright-Roanoke, VA
Farmer Auctions did an absolutely amazing job with my parents personal belongings, their real estate and their business. I am so thankful for the staff, their professionalism, their integrity and making a difficult time very easy. They exceeded my expectations by 500%. I cannot say enough nice things about Jarrod and his staff.. words that describe my experience with them: professional, sensitive knowledgeable, punctual, thorough, fair. The amazing attention to detail, knowledge, respect and sensitivity they showed during a difficult time made the entire process so much easier. I cannot say enough about their integrity, professionalism and work ethic. As an antique dealer for 35 years, I know that I made the right choice by selecting Farmers Auctions for my parents personal, business and real estate liquidation. They are a tremendous team and I am very grateful for the assistance rendered. Hands-down the best auctioneer in the area! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT FARMERS!
Katie Heiskell-Blacksburg, VA
Jarrod and his team were extremely helpful! They stepped in and rescued us after having a bad experience with another local estate sale company. Our on line auction was conducted in a professional & timely manner. I highly recommend Farmer Auctions!!
Susan Buonviri-Troutville, VA
Farmer Auctions is an amazing, awesome online auction company. We were familiar with Farmer Auctions as biddersnon their online auctions. Now that we were the sellers, my husband and I could not be more pleased. Every aspect of our experience was absolutely perfect. The owner, Jarrod Hines, is a consummate professional, as is everyone else on his staff. The folks who spent several days cataloguing our items were always respectful and worked very hard to make the auction a big success. The photos they took were super well done and really helped potential buyers see what they were bidding on. We really hope to work with them again, and we highly recommend Farmer Auctions to anyone who has need of their services. They are the best!!!
Don and Johnette Roberts-Clifton Forge, VA
Kudos, Jarrod and staff!!! I can’t thank you enough for the fine job you’ve done. I was hesitant at first of the online auction process but after a step by step explanation, it was the way to go and everything sold successfully. The entire process from start to finish was only about 4 weeks. I’m grateful for your time and expertise!
Donna Ecochard-Charlottesville, VA
From the first email, everyone was so nice and helpful. I worried about how to disperse my mother's lifetime collection. The team's combined knowledge of antiques and collectibles really helped to make the auction catalog informative. The ability to reach bidders around the country was wonderful. Everything was professionally handled from cataloging to removal. Team is professional, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Treated me, my home, and my items for auction with respect. All of this together made the auction very successful. My mother would be very pleased. I am very pleased.
Shelly Koon-Salem, VA
I have been buying through Farmer auctions for a few years now and can say, without a doubt, that I have found some amazing art, curious pieces, and hard to find antiques and collectibles without ever leaving my home!
In particular, during this pandemic, I have truly enjoyed the fun and excitement of bidding online, passing the time of lockdown with things to look forward to!
There’s something for everyone from high end to low end.
The people who catalog the items do a fantastic job of informing and providing accurate descriptions.
The web site itself is very user friendly and easy to use.
Five Stars!
Judith Starchild-Roanoke, VA
I had spoken with other auction companies before calling Farmer Auctions. Jarrod Hines Owner/President of Farmer came to the house and from that meeting I knew I was dealing with professionals who had my best interest at heart. The marketing plan he laid out including the appraisal process to maxamize value of our life long collection went to limits beyond what any other company discussed. Talk is one thing delivery is another and I can attest to the fact that Farmer Auctions delivered on their promise. As the process unfolded from appraisals to marketing and finally the auction and aftermath including how the collection was distributed to the customers went like clockwork. The check for the proceeds exceeded my expectations and came within ten days. If you are considering an auction look no further than Farmer.
Sincerely, Bill Palmer
Bill Palmer-Moneta, VA
I engaged Farmer Auctions to empty a house my great-great grandfather built. It has been continuously occupied for over 100 years (read - it was packed). I do not live near the house, and was not able to work on this project myself. Farmer Auctions did an excellent job sorting and evaluating all the items in the house and in an adjacent dependency. Farmer Auction experts were very skilled at creating lots, and displaying, describing and photographing each item. From them, I learned the importance of marketing a sale. They did an outstanding job positioning the sale and using social media, netting bidders in 11 different states. I recommend Farmer Auctions to anyone who needs to empty a house, particularly those who have limited time and need a "turn key" job.
H, Barringer Spangler-Blacksburg, VA
Professional and courteous! My father was a bit of a hoarder and I would never have been able to sort out and value all of his personal property alone. Farmer Auctions took care of everything! Their staff was professional, efficient and courteous. I will definitely use them in the future.
Cissy Isaac
Absolutely love the staff and this auction house. I’ve never been treated badly and have been to many of their auctions. Would highly recommend them to sellers and buyers. Their descriptions are spot on. They have been more than willing to help with bigger items and are pleasant to talk to. Great group of people. Thanks for being a fair and well run auction house. They are becoming harder and harder to come by. Looking forward to your future auctions and using your services soon as we have accumulated too much lol. Thanks guys
Dustin and Clarice Gibbs-Daleville, VA
This is an Awesome company!! They have some wonderful employees. Everything that I have bought from them has been exactly how it was described in the details. Other auction houses aren't as knowledgeable about their items like the staff for Farmer Auctions. These people do their research on their items. I have had some health problems and they have been extremely kind. Kassie is just the sweetest young lady and very pleasant to talk with on the phone. Dan is another employee that is always very kind and helpful. These two are the employees that I have had the most interactions. Jarrod is also very nice. I recommend this establishment to everyone! They are honest and are just good people all around.
Paula Van Sickle-Roanoke, VA
Farmer conducted an online auction of household belongings from our mother’s estate. Our interactions with Farmer personnel were outstanding. I was highly impressed by their curtesy and efficiency. The entire auction process was well organized and produced a result well within the range of our expectations. We were entirely satisfied with the service and would use Farmer again should the need arise.
Congressman Rick Boucher-Abingdon, VA
I have no experience with auctions-buying or selling. The thought of trying to do something with my parents household was emotional and overwhelming. I spoke with several auction companies and was not impressed. Most were pushy and unprofessional.
After calling Farmers Auctions, I knew within 1 minute that these guys were very professional. Jarrod and his team took care of everything. They kept me updated throughout the entire process. They went through the entire house-every drawer, closet, the basement and attic.
All the anxiety was gone and I was so relieved and satisfied. These guys must be called before you choose an auction company.
Joseph Wood-Clifton Forge, VA
I talked to many auction companies before deciding to go with Farmer and I’m so glad I did. The entire team was pleasant, hard-working and professional. I was especially grateful for the sensitivity shown to my family, since the sale was liquidating my parents assets after the death of my father.
In fairness, they are probably not the cheapest company, but you get what you pay for and I don’t hesitate in recommending them.
Wanda Brooks McGee-Madison Heights, VA
You and your team have gone so far above! The entire experience has been more than we could ever have hoped for in the situation.

You all have a genuine empathetic approach to folks who are in need, often during some of the most difficult times of their lives! Thank you for keeping us focused on the bigger picture and the concern (and I should probably say “tolerance”) for our family!

You and your team have been simply amazing! The professionalism and absolute dedication are inspirational! I would not ask for any better! Gilda especially made this entire effort a pleasure and her leadership is clearly spread across the team- please let her know how much all her effort is truly appreciated! My Dad and Mom would have loved to sit and talk with her for hours in end - she’s such an endearing person!

Please let us know the best forums for your needs and I will absolutely make sure everyone knows that we recommend Farmer-Auctions highly and without reservation!
Stacy Duncan-Executor-Duncan Family Auction Event
I purchased some items from this auction, and I was really impressed with the professionalism and courtesy displayed by your group. From bidding to item pickup, you made the process easy and enjoyable.
Thanks again to your entire team!
James Jones-Saltville, VA
Jarrod and his colleagues did a sale of my late husband’s collection. They did a terrific job. His staff could not have been more kind and helpful. They were able to catalogue many things and stage them for a sale without any inconvenience to me. I am very pleased with the result of my sale and experience at Farmer’s.
