Here’s what others have to say about CAI Auction Professionals

This would not have been possible without the help of [the auction professionals]. They took the time to explain the auction process and answer all my questions. Their patience and knowledge made my first auction a joyous experience. I'm moving into my new home this weekend.

- Testimonial from Nicholls Auction Marketing Group

I wanted to send you this note to express my personal appreciation for the way you and your team handled the disposition of my mom’s household contents and later sale of her home. Every detail of this very complex process was taken care of in a flawless manner and resulted in my total satisfaction and gratitude.

- Testimonial from The Swicegood Group

From our initial ‘interview’ throughout the entire process, [the auction professional] went out of his way to make sure we understood the entire process — which was no easy task considering my brother resides hundreds of miles away in New England. Nevertheless, [he] kept us in the loop the entire time, offered to make sure whatever needed to be done was done. For example, when I was out of town and unable to meet a repairman, [he] took care of it. When I was unable to go to closing, [he] went to closing on our behalf.
