Attending Penny Carr’s auctions convinced me to hire her to sell my own items when I downsized. I had gone to two of Auction Louisianne events and enjoyed them very much. They were professionally run with attention to conveniences that are important to both the buyer and seller.
Penny ensures that the potential bidders have a good opportunity to see and examine the items on-line, in previews, and, especially helpful, in a slideshow on screens that all the participants can see as the merchandise comes up for bid. She bundles some small items into lots that make sense to collectors while keeping the auction from getting bogged down.
Her company arranges to have coffee, good food and snacks for sale on site during the breaks so patrons can stay throughout the auction in comfort. Penny’s auction style is fun and upbeat, never boring. You can tell she and her staff enjoy their jobs. I found the terms for sellers and buyers are fair. The staff is very easy to work with and provide knowledgeable advise about what will and won’t sell. I highly recommend Auction Louisianne for those in Southeast Louisiana looking to buy or sell.

I recently had the over whelming task of disposing of my bothers estate… I am forever grafeful to Pennie for her expert handling of this massive undertaking. Her assistants were also hard working and efficient and together they made a very impressive team. As a result of Pennie’s expertise and attention to detail, the auction far exceeded everyone’s expectations. She is a delightful person to work with, and I wholeheartedly recommend Carr Appraisal & Estate Sale Services.
We are grateful that Ms. Carr’s help was available to us during this difficult time, and have the highest regard for her integrity, industriousness, thoroughness and expertise. We feel no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in similar need of her services.
