What People Say About Wardlow Auctions, Inc.
I have been meaning to write for some time to express my appreciation for the excellent job you and everyone at Wardlow Auctions did in helping me with the personal property and real estate auctions of my father’s estate.
As I’m sure is true for many who undergo the loss of a family member, I found myself on unfamiliar ground without any prior experience to draw upon. I consider myself blessed that my dad had a lawyer who was tremendously helpful, and who recommended Wardlow Auctions to me.
Trying to manage the estate—particularly the details of sorting the personal property and determining what held value and what did not—was not going to be an easy task considering I live in Indianapolis while the house and property were there in Louisville. The professionalism, helpfulness and patience you and your firm displayed in taking on that task for me made an otherwise overwhelming period of my life a little easier. For that I will
always be grateful.
I also appreciate the advice and wisdom both you and Joe Gribbins shared regularly as decisions regarding the estate became necessary. It is no exaggeration to say that the results of the auctions you conducted for the estate exceeded my most optimistic expectations, and I cannot imagine that trying to liquidate the estate in any other manner would have yielded the same results.
On the day of the real estate auction, I was so impressed with how deftly you, Joe, Rick Wardlow and Brent Gribbins managed the proceedings, both in person and online. Having all of you there participating gave me further confidence that I could not have made a better choice, and I believe the results bear that out.
I hope you will provide my name and number in the future if you ever have occasion to convince a potential client what great work you do and what wonderful people you are to work with. I would be honored to serve as
a reference for Wardlow Auctions at any time.
Thank you again for your professional abilities and your personal compassion.
Shawn Wilkie
The Kamer family would like to express our appreciation and thanks to Wardlow Auctions for a job well done in helping us settle the estate of our parents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Kamer Sr.

The entire process, from the initial meeting to the actual auction, was conducted in a very cooperative, thorough, and respectful manner.

It was obvious that many hours of preparation were spent in preparing the house and its contents. The real estate and the personal property auctions were so efficiently and effectively handled it was a pleasure to observe.

Also it was evident that Wardlow's marketing, advertising, signage, and internet exposure all did their part in drawing the large crowd of bidders to the auction. We marvel at Wardlow's attention to planning and execution of every detail, too many to mention.

To all the Wardlow personnel who helped with the auciton, we applaud your work.

Rick, Joe, and Allee.......your dedication and professionalism are to be commended.

Thank you again, and we positively and without hesitation, sincerely say we highly recommend Wardlow Auctions.
It is my pleasure to recommend Rick Wardlow Auctions, Inc. to anyone interested in selling a home and/or personal property. I was responsible for selling my parents' home and an auction seemed to fit my needs since I lived nine hours away and I desired to sell the property quickly and efficientlly. Fortunately, I have two friends who had very positive experiences using auctions to dispose of real estate and personal property, so I felt this was the right option for me.

Several months ago my business partner and I were faced with a dilemma. Our business had changed. We once had 20,000 square feet, now we have 3,000 square feet. Over 27 years we had accumulated equipment to fill those 20,000 square feet. Now, we didn’t have the space to house all of the things we no longer needed.

We toyed with the idea of having a big yard sale, or putting things up for auction on eBay. Then we contacted Wardlow Auctions. Looking over the items we had to sell, Rick Wardlow said, “If you put these items up for auction, you will sell everything.” We found that hard to believe.

We sold everything!

Sure, some items didn’t fetch as much as we felt they were worth. Then again, some items got substantially more than we’d hoped for. The bottom line is that we are now relieved of all of our excess inventory and received more overall that we suspected we could.

Joe Gribbins and Rick Wardlow couldn’t have been more professional. We highly recommend Wardlow Auctions to anyone who is contemplating doing an auction.

Just a note of thanks for the superb job you and the staff of Wardlow Auctions performed in handling the sale of my uncle’s estate. Your knowledge of the entire auction process, and your ability to answer all our questions, eased our fears during the difficult task of selling my uncle’s real estate, vehicles, guns, and personal property. The sale price of the house and everything else far exceeded our expectations.

We cannot thank you enough for guiding us through this process. Wardlow Auctions is a top-notch organization!
