The Auction House

Here at Crossroads Auction Service, we specialize in estate sales. Prospective customers often ask why we prefer not to auction their heirlooms directly out of their house. The answer is simple. We have a well lit, 6,000 square foot, modern auction house. We’ve been auctioning from this location since 2001. The consistent location has allowed us to develop a large following of return customers. Antique dealers and collectors appreciate being able to return to the same location to find everything they need. The large building allows us to spread furniture and smaller items out so that customers can closely examine everything they are bidding on. Another advantage is that although over 100 people typically attend our auctions, they rarely feel crowded.Our facility features an up to date computer system. Consigners and bidders are issued numbers that are programmed into our system. The entire auction process is simplified and streamlined by our computer system. This allows both buyers and consigners to have a complete listing of purchases, sales, fees, and consigner rates. We also advertise every auction on the internet. Showing pictures on the internet helps us draw customers for specific items. We also have an email mailing list of regular customers who like to stay notified about what we’re auctioning.

It should be noted that we have a very experienced staff. We understand that fragile items need to be treated with care and that antiques must be given the respect due their age. Furthermore, our staff understands that an auction can be a long day for our customers. We try to make the experience as fun and interesting for the bidders as possible. Many return customers have commented on the comfortable family-like environment at our auctions. Jim Deacons has followed in the footsteps of his father and is everything one would expect an auctioneer to be. With a lifetime of auction experience, he maintains the pace of the auction, a careful watch on bidding, and a sense of humor that makes everyone feel at home. ​
