Dear Jim,

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent results achieved through auctioning our property. I continue to tell friends, acquaintances and just about anyone who will listen about how well things worked out for us. Our family is grateful to you for your assistance.

I know it is unusual for properties in this price range ($190,000) to sell at auction but it really suited our needs. With three active children and being a single parent, I dreaded trying to maintain the house in "showcase" condition for an extended period of time. The Open Houses allowed us to maintain our normal pattern and then get ready for the showing. I was also concerned about how long it would take to sell the property. With the auction approach, I knew I would have an answer within a predictable time frame. In fact, it was less than 30 days from my decision to sell to the auction date. Selling "as is" takes away any questions about the home's condition as well as the potential expense of inspections, repairs, or negotiation over what to do about whatever changes the potential buyer might desire - it makes selling easy. And best of all, we were very pleased with the financial results!

I also want to thank you for the work you did to make this successful. The newspaper ads were great. the words and photos really helped. We had a huge amount of traffic (which is really an accomplishment considering a country location on a dead end) by our house and many stopped to pick up a flyer from the handy dispenser. Even the additional Open House, the day before the auction, worked well.

If you ever need a reference, I will be happy to respond to questions or relate my experience.

Again, thanks for everything.

We received the check yesterday and wanted to tell you that I was very impressed with the whole process. Being from out of town, the process very minimal for us. The top administration at Unity were also impressed with the quick results. Thanks to you and Lee (pass this on to Lee).

Dear Jim,

Just wanted to "Thank You" for the fantastic job you did selling our place. I know it's your job, but you all were a real pleasure to work with. I just didn't realize the hassle it would have been to have tried to handle it on our own. I am glad clyde recommended you both.

Thank You,
Harvey and Leona Nichol

Jim Sanders' knowledge of selling real estate at auction was a tremendous asset for YCAT. The auction handled by Mr. Sanders for us realized a sale price of $94,000.00 which was $9000.00 MORE than the appraised value of $85,000.00. We appreciate the professional manner in which he handled all aspects of the sale, from advertising to the closing within 30 DAYS OF THE AUCTION!

"When my mother decided to move out of state and sell her home, our realtor recommended having an auction and estate sale.  At first the idea was frightening.  After meeting Jim Sanders and talking over the logistics, we felt better.  Throughout the process, Jim made himself available and answered our never ending questions promptly with professionalism and understanding.  It is a very emotional roller coaster when you leave a home after 30 years.  Jim made it very easy.  In two months my mother moved, sold her home and auctioned her belongings with very little effort on her part. He did an amazing job and we thank him."

"Jim was very responsive to our needs, provided great counsel on the homes to look at during the process, negotiated a fair price, and made closing the deal very smooth. Jim Sanders is the type of partner I have and will continue to recommend to my friends and family
