Dear Mr. Wilson,
Enclosed you will find the information we discussed regarding the auction house in lower Delaware. We were not at all satisfied with the results-to-cost ratio from the online or live auctions that we had with that company. They were slow to respond to inquiries and did not offer the customer service that we had expected, considering the high costs of their services.
Wilson’s Auction House, on the other hand, did exactly what was promised. You handled the pick up and sale of the remaining contents of my fathers house in a professional, friendly, and honest manner. Every one of your staff members was helpful and courteous. They went about their jobs cheerfully and efficiently. Your auction was actually a fun event with satisfied customers both buying and selling. We will highly recommend your services to anyone who is thinking of using an auction as a way of selling anything. Thank you for your prompt payment and goodwill throughout all the steps of the process.-Dover, DE

A friend told me of her positive experience with Wilson’s and suggested I contact them when my mom passed away and I was at a loss of what to do with her home goods. Wilson’s Auction and Wade, in particular, was so helpful from quote to the auction of the items. Wade contacted me immediately, was kind, and explained the process. He kept me updated and answered all my questions. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to use Wilson’s. – Dover, DE
I was appointed as executor in autumn 2017 to administer a Maryland estate for my late uncle. After interviewing two auction firms to handle the sale of the contents of a 2,000 square foot barn overflowing with farm tools, vehicles and equipment, as well as residential house items and a myriad of antiques and collectibles, I selected Wade and Dave Wilson. Even though Wilsons was out of state, I needed a firm that I could trust and rely on since I myself am out of state and would not be able to personally attend any of the auction events. Due to the varying nature of the estate assets, Wilsons devised a strategy to sell all items in 3 tranches, the farm tools, vehicles and equipment at an on-site sale in Maryland, the house contents at a sale at their facility in Delaware, and the antiques at a special Memorial Day sale, all designed to maximize sale proceeds. Working together as a team, Dave and Wade demonstrated an extraordinarily high level of expertise and professionalism from the inception of the engagement to the completion of the 3 auction sales. I was especially impressed with Wade’s responsiveness. He is very communicative and able to express himself with precision, clarity and attention to detail. I am a corporate attorney by profession and have worked with many service providers over the years. Wilsons did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations.
Rob and I just wanted to express the great job that your entire staff did with our aunt’s estate. I cannot thank you enough for your personal interest that you gave us. Wade took time out of his busy schedule to meet with and review the paperwork. The moving crew loaded the trucks quickly and professionally. There weren’t any problems or damages. In closing, thank you, Wade and your entire staff for doing an outstanding job! What you did was really a relief to us. Thanks a million – Ron
I am so glad to have the opportunity to compliment a very special company – Wilson’s Auction Sales. I called them because I wanted to sell our Delaware license plate. Wade was my contact and a nicer more helpful businessman I have never met. His attitude was friendly and so willing to help. He explained the auction process and told me what items he would need. When I had them together he came to my home and picked them up himself. He completed everything that had to be done, brought the check and new tag to me, and even put the new plate on my vehicle. I never had to leave my home. I have never dealt with anyone who tried so hard to make everything easy. I truly appreciated Wade’s kindness and desire to be of service. He made the whole process pleasant. I totally recommend Wilson’s Auction Sales, Inc. to anyone in need of their services. They are the very best! – Sincerely, Rebecca Warren

Paul and I want to thank you for all of your help in selling our Georgetown house. Wade couldn’t have been nicer. He was not only professional but he became a friend. Right up front he told us how they would advertise our house and he kept his word. The advertising was great. He kept us updated though out the whole procedure. We could not have been more pleased with their services. We would recommend them to every one. Paul & Liz Ravilious

I wanted to thank you for doing a fast and good job with the auction of my log cabin. As you know I had the property on the market for over a year with a realtor and three days before settlement the buyer backed out and he had only put $1,000.00 down. Then my insurance company of 25 years dropped me because no one was living in the house. I told the realtor to put it up for auction. This was the 30th of September. I waited and waited, he never did it-so I called you myself. I talked to Wade and he explained to me how the auction worked. First, I had to be sure I was not still under contract with the realtor. I called the realtor and he would not give me a yes or no answer. I am old, not stupid. I called Wade back and he said he would handle it. He called the realtor and called me back a few minutes later and told me I was not under contract. I signed and the auction was in 30 days.
1. Wade kept in touch on a weekly basis. That I liked.
2. The auction was right on time. I liked that too.
3. The buyer put down $20,000.00 in hundred dollar bills-I liked that.
4. I don’t need to be at settlement.
5. The check will go right into my account.
JOB WELL DONE-THANK YOU!!

I would just like to share my experience with Wilson’s Auctioneers. My Mom’s house had been on the market for over a year with very few prospective buyers. At age 85 she needed to move into an apartment and be closer to her family. With the house not selling, she decided to contact Wilson’s Auctioneers and see what they could do for her. The experience we had with them was amazing. They immediately went to work on preparing the auction for her. The necessary paperwork was all scanned to me within a week, then after that we were in contact either by phone or email with any questions we had. The auction was set for less than a month away from her first call to them. Dave Wilson and Wade Wilson were both present at the auction. They worked very hard and their commitment to my mother was beyond reproach. They are both very polite and very respectful gentlemen to work with. I would highly recommend them for anyone that needs to sell their property. The experience was a very pleasant one and I would not hesitate to contact them again.
