What People Say About Us

"I highly recommend CCAE! John & his staff were impeccable in all ways. Professional & thorough with excellent communication & in their research & execution of the auction items. An absolute 5 star operation- honesty & integrity all the way!"

Peter Quinn

"Champaign County Auctions and Estates did a great job from start to finish. The staff worked very hard in going through a large inventory to catalogue and photograph to get great descriptions out online. They worked on marketing to reach more buyers. Pickup by buyers was handled without any problems. The auction was difficult for family but they handled it so professionally and respectfully that it was much easier to get through. Would highly recommend."

Janet Wolfe

"CCAE were very professional with my Estate. They know how to sell everything. Their online marketing is the best."

Ken L.

"John and his team were wonderful to work with. They were very knowledgeable about antiques and so many other types of items. They were organized and efficient .. from the cataloguing process to the pickup process. We were very pleased with how they handled our parent's estate sale. They were always open to answering our questions whether it be in person, over the phone, or through email; and we always felt we were getting fair/straight answers. Thanks John and your team."

M Kyle

"Champaign County Auctions & Estates is one of the most professional organizations we’ve worked with. First and foremost, they are responsive and detail oriented. They set up an appointment quickly to look over the items in question and give advice as to what would sell well. Their contract was simple, straightforward, and fair. We promptly set up a time for pick up of the items, the online auction timeline, and all agreed-upon dates were adhered to.

Working with John and his team at CCAE was seamless and painless during a hectic time. We appreciate their work and highly recommend them for online auctions."
