Hands-On Client Testimonial for EPIC Auction and Estate SalesCharlene L. Maxwell, Board of Director, Charles A. Bunch, Inc.June 2016
Bob Howe and his Team at EPIC Auction and Estate Sales professionally planned, marketed,
and conducted a combined on-line and live auction of our Family Corporation’s heavy
construction and other miscellaneous equipment accumulated over 60+ years. The bottom-line
auction results by far, and we mean very far, “exceeded” our expectations and the fair market value.
What we appreciated most about working with the EPIC Team was the ability to not only plan, manage,
and execute two on-line bidding sites and a live auction site simultaneously, but their understanding
and balancing the emotional difficulties and ties that accompanied the equipment sale of our Family-owned business, and delivering the best results we believe we could have achieved.
Their strategizing, communication and partnering with us “excel” best-practices in any type of service
oriented business we have experienced. If you are looking for the auction dollar results and a pleasant
working relationship, I highly recommend you consider EPIC as your auctioneering service provider.
In summary, we plan to use EPIC to sell our Corporation building and property, which we believe
Is the best recommendation we could ever provide.
Dear Bob & Sheila,Tom KrashenJanuary 2016
Just a quick note of thanks for all of your help with our recent estate sale. From start to finish the process was easy and we could not be more happy with the result. Please express our thanks to the rest of your team, especially Kayla and Adam.
5 Star! We hired Epic Estate Sales to handle my in-laws' huge estate of collectibles, vintage items, furniture, and general housewares. I was very impressed with the staff. Any time we stopped by they were friendly and professional. It was clear they knew what they were doing. They were able to take an overwhelming amount of "stuff" and display it in a way that people were able to see everything. From start to finish, the process was made simple by the Epic Estate Sales staff. I would highly recommend this company for any estate sale you might have.Laura Tinkham FengerSeptember 2015
5 Star I've been to many auctions and estate sales over the years and have to say that the crew of Epic is the most professional of any I've dealt with. Linda DobsonJuly 2015
They are most helpful in knowing what is in the sales, helping customers with their purchases and providing all the little extras that set them above the rest.
Bob and Sheila Howe run their sales in the professional manner I would expect if I were seeking such services.
5 Star I had a blast at Epic's last sale! The staff had it so well organized that I got through the house twice in 2 hours and bought my fill of vintage items. The professional staff was so helpful. Sharon was like a store sales associate showing me this and that in case I missed anything. Most everything was fairly priced. This was a monster sale and I highly commend this group on the massive amount of work put into this sale to make it a pleasure to shop for the hundreds of people who visited. I look forward to the next time. Thanks Bob and Sheila.Renee Chaden GardnerSeptember 2015

5 Star We'll run sale and nice staff. I got what I came for. One of the most organized and well displayed sales I've attended I'm happy. Sharon BurtonAugust 2015

We can't thank you enough for the fantastic job you and your staff did on our estate sale. Epic Estate Sales was a life-saver for us. You were very highly recommended by another agent and we feel so lucky to have you. We felt as if a huge burden was lifted off us as you began to take on the task of clearing a 4,000 sq. foot house of 30 years of living.
First you were able to accomplish the task in a very tight time frame as our house sold in 2 weeks and we had only 4 weeks to vacate. Everything was efficiently organized and displayed with little inconvenience for us.
Your knowledge of the value of hundreds of various items was amazing. Things we would have sold at a garage sale for $10 or $20, you were able to get hundreds.
We truly appreciated how honest and straight-forward everyone was in all your dealings with us. We always received an answer to any question we asked, the terms were more than fair for the variety of services you provided, and the accounting after the sale was appreciated.
All our neighbors were notified of the "event" so they didn't mind the extra traffic for 3 days and they really enjoyed coming to the sale too.
Excellent advertising and your many internet contacts brought a large crowd ready to buy. We can hardly believe that everything sold in such a short time.
During the sale you had security and staff on hand to help buyers move out large or heavy items, a touch almost unheard of in other estate sales. When we returned after the sale the house was clean and ready for the new buyers to move in.
We are happy to recommend you to anyone in need of Estate Sales services. You are the BEST !
Thank you so much, Keith and Pam Seales
Dear Bob & Sheila Howe,David & Jeanne ButlerMay 2013
Jeanne and I want to thank-you very much for a great estate sale. We were very pleased to return home the last day of the sale and find the house empty and ready for the new owners. You and your staff certainly earned your commission. Jeanne kept saying she was going to have several garage sales! The amount we received from you from the estate sale, in our opinion, exceeded any garage sale income by not only your commission, but m0ore profit for ourselves. Plus more importantly we did not have to do the work.
We were also greatly pleased with the assistance you provided in the selling of my currency and coin collections and with both our vehicles.
Finally, we want to again thank you and your staff of Epic Auctions & Estate Sales for a very positive experience.

(After conducting a Charity Auction event for the March of Dimes in Traverse city
Thank you to Bob and Shelia Howe of EPIC AUCTIONS and ESTATE SALES. They (and their crew) did a fantastic job with my brothers estate auction. My families ultimate goal was to make the best money for his twins trust funds; their knowledge and experience on how to handle his various collections were instrumental in obtaining that goal. Things ran smoothly throughout the entire process, they made dealing with a heartbreaking/difficult situation so much easier. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing their type of services. If you need their number just message me anytime. They are the best! Pattie SchafferJune 2014
