Testimonials Page

Dear Mr. Willis, On behalf of Mrs. Jewell Mudd, and her family members, I would like to sincerely thank you and the whole Farm and Home Realty and Auction Team for the successful auction of Mrs. Mudd’s personal property and real estate on May 3rd, 2014. Your Team’s focused commitment, resourcefulness, and complete professionalism resulted in a very successful sale that will provide additional resources for Mrs. Mudd’s continued care for several years into the future. During the auction process, the F&H Team provided excellent advice, counsel, and consistently delivered exceptional service in our preparation for this complex sale of the real estate, home, and personal property. With four generations of the Mudd family having lived in the home, the task of preparation and sorting the belongings for sale were especially challenging. Your team members “pitched in” to close a large gap in our preparation process and thereby ensured all the property was ready for presentation and auction to the buyers. From our first business interchange, the F&H Team consistently built our confidence in your ability to manage this process and to complete a successful auction on behalf of our family. Please pass along our deepest gratitude and appreciation to John Glenn, Aaron Haycraft, Todd Akridge, James Johnson, Pamela Willis and all the other Professionals at F&H who directly contributed to this successful auction outcome. Kathlyn Mudd Thomas, May 10th, 2014

We recently found ourselves in the position of having to sell a lake house in Cub Run, Ky. Being from out of state, we were unfamiliar with the real estate market in that region of the country. I saw Patrick's For Sale Sign at the entry of the neighborhood and researched him on the web. He had a very professional and informative website so we decided to use him as our Realtor. He was extremely knowledgeable about the local property market. He walked us through the entire process and got the house sold quickly. He was able to be my go to person for any resources I needed in the area which was extremely helpful with me being out of state. I would highly recommend Patrick. Angie Habel, Mckinney TX
We just switched realtors and went with Pat. He is very professional, has lots of knowledge on the area, and extremely friendly. He has been very helpful in helping us to find a house. We are in the process of buying a home from Pat right now. If you find a house you like Pat doesn't waste any time at all. I would recommend him to anyone he is extremely likable. Rebecca Cottrell Client, Buyer
I had to leave the area quickly for a new job opening a thousand miles away and never really did get to get my house "ready" for the market but Pat listed it and had it sold at a satisfactory price within a month and a half keeping in touch with what was going on the whole time. No complaints and very happy with his service. Scott Nobles, Naples FL

Commercial Property Auctionscommercial real estate at auction

Commercial Property auctions may be one of the single best methods of liquidating both real and personal/business property. Often when a business is in need of change or going out of business, the bank or the current owner is in need of a quick liquidation of the assets. An auction can facilitate this liquidation need in a timely manner and since auctions are sold "as is, where is" there is most likely little to no liability as to the condition of the property placed on the seller.
From the Buyer's perspective, there is often big bargains to be had at a fraction of current market value.

All parties achieve their needs and go home with the best possible outcome.

We suggest the seller complete an equipment checklist that can be made available to assist prospective buyers in making good decisions on their purchases. These equipment check lists states known defects and current condition and helps eliminate liability issues that may arise. Often these types of auctions are either done on-site or are collected in a consignment type manner and scheduled for a later date.
