Please relay my thanks to your in-house shipping pros for the excellent job on my purchase…It was among the most professional work I’ve seen. Everything arrived in perfect condition.

Thanks, again, for your kindness when I was in Chicago and you came to my brother’s condo to look at his things and arrange for the consignments. You responded promptly which was a great help for me since I was only in town for a short time and were a pleasure to work with.

“Thank you for this, absolutely amazing being able to sell so many items we never expected this, big surprise, just shows we chose the right auctioneers…”

“Just wanted to share some wonderful comments from last year’s show that I recently heard from several of the women. They felt that the antique show was the best fundraiser our club ever had–you were so knowledgeable and did a great job presenting the antique information.”

On behalf of the Roselle Public Library Foundation thank you for donating your time and expertise to our Antique Appraisal fundraiser Saturday, June 6. In a small community opportunities to raise funds are limited, and we are grateful to raise extra funds to help the library with things that are not tax-funded. Your knowledge and very personable presentation was very much appreciated.
- Elaine Pizzicaro, President Roselle Public Library Foundation, June 9, 2015
Thank you … you are one reputable and reliable auction group that I trust. You are so organized and honest … I would recommend you to anyone I know and am certain they would be treated in the same kind and respectful manner that I have been.

You have a knack for doing things honestly, respectfully and in a consistent and timely manner. Your appraisals, previews, auction and final postings have the nicest touch. All of your are so warm and personable. So, thank you for the wonderful gift – a final hammer that brought more than expected so many times. It meant so very much to me to offer my late husband’s collection of coins and other collections and items he enjoyed with others in your extensive world wide buyers market to view and bid on. Everything sold. You do your job so well.

We had a family member pass away suddenly in the Chicago area…We were very surprised by the sum that the items fetched at auction, and we received payment promptly. The commission rate was also very fair and John did his best to keep it as low as possible. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is dealing with a similar situation and doesn’t know what to do. They really came to our rescue during a very bad time.

After interviewing several companies to handle a family estate liquidation John was selected to handle an estate sale followed by auction of the remaining items. He was always direct, helpful and conscientious from the planning, marketing, pricing, operation and cleanup of the estate sale through the timing, conduct, reporting and payment on the auction items. John enjoys his work and is good at it. I recommend him without reservation.

Just wanted to say thank you again for providing your services for our antiques appraisal program and helping make it a fun and successful event for us. Your professionalism and knowledge were greatly appreciated. Hope we can do it again next year.
- Amanda J. Hanson, CPRP, Museum Supervisor, Skokie Heritage Museum, March 27, 2014
I wish there was a way to thank you appropriately! You are amazing! I will tell everyone I know how kind your were to me. You need to know that no one else even returned my calls, probably because the rug is not highly valued. But this helps me so very much, it would be difficult to overestimate your kindness…
- Ann S., June 17, 2014
I found that the entire process was thoroughly great. It was a really good experience. The staff has always been really helpful and friendly and they really make you welcome. I would and have recommended your auction to many of my friends.
- Maria M., March 17, 2014
This was the most well run and organized auction I ever attended. Staff was super friendly and helpful, especially Ellen and the front woman at the desk with short dark hair who checked us in and explained everything to us patiently and friendly. The auctioneer spoke clear and was quick and professional and got through the items quickly. The website where you can also watch the auctions was amazing. Very well done, and I was very impressed. We will be attending your auctions in the future for sure!
- Maureen T., February 17, 2014
As a first time attendee, I found the experience extremely enjoyable! I have been to very many auctions over the years, mostly in Michigan. I was impressed with the organization of the items for sale, especially the online catalog. The staff was most friendly and helpful. It is a plus that large items do not have to be removed on the date of the sale. All in all, Leonard Auction was the most professionally run auction that I have ever attended.
- Frederick M., January 20, 2014
I appreciate all your help throughout the process, you and your team were really terrific.
- Eric N., October 2, 2013
Just wanted to send you a note to tell you how wonderful your crew was yesterday!!! They truly went above and beyond in so many ways from quickly and gently packing to the same with the moving. They are truly Dedicated and Caring…
- Jan K., December 20, 2013
I want to say thank you for all your hard work, my parents really do appreciate it.
- Maria S., July 24, 2012
I received a check in the mail yesterday for the sale of the cash register, and just wanted to let you know how thrilled my mom and I were with the outcome! Your service was truly exceptional, and surpassed our wildest expectations. We both look forward to the possibility of working with you again, and will recommend you to our real estate and interior design clients without hesitation.
