Ron Rhoads Auctioneers

Ron Rhoads Auctioneers

A Tradition of Excellence The "Rhoads" name has been synonymous with performance, attention and customer appreciation for the past 50 years! It all started with Vic Rhoads. Vic was the "the celebrated auctioneer of the famous Chincoteague Ponies." He was a master of using the confirmation approach to selling real estate at auction. Vic's approach is one of the many reasons that the Rhoads family has enjoyed a reputation for great success over the past 50 years and two generations. Ron Rhoads is the next generation of the Rhoads family. He learned his profession from his father, Vic Rhoads. Ron and his wife, Eileen, are committed to carrying on the Rhoads family tradition of excellence. And, it certainly shows by the continued high attendance, response and purchases of the auction goers. The Formula for a Successful Auction Product Knowledge/Pricing Ron & Eileen go the "extra mile" to gain as much knowledge as possible about the real estate they are auctioning. It is that product knowledge that gives the Rhoads' clients the competitive edge when it comes to pricing. Marketing "90% of an Auction is done before the first bid is called!" Auction marketing is the single most important step of the process if the auction is to be successful. And, years of expertise in advertising and antique publication are a significant part of the Rhoads' success. The Rhoads' marketing strategy includes advertising and promotion ranging from newspaper ads to direct mail brochures and telemarketing. They believe that a properly advertised and promoted auction insures that fair market value is reached for their clients through competitive bidding. Ron & Eileen understand the importance of using a variety of advertising methods and know what it takes to turn out a crowd. Planning Extensive planning is utilized to eliminate problems from arising. The planning process provides for those "Terms & Conditions" which govern the auction, payment methods, transfer of title, bill of sale, the time and place of pick-up and other details that must be coordinated before the auction. Displaying Auction Items Personal property is not only sold on location but can be moved to centrally located sites. Ron & Eileen take a great deal of time to display, arrange and highlight auction items. That careful presentation coupled with the knowledge of product value are, without question, major factors in their continued high attendance and sales.

Fine Auctioneer, Easy pay with PayPal.
Won a lot with several Fragile pottery items. Rhoads uses the UPS Store in Pottstown for shipping. They did an INCREDIBLE Packaging job for these fragile items. Very quickly shipped! Payment is so easy with PayPal.

Solid auction house, no problems. Would bid there again.
Everything went as one would hope after I won an item; I was contacted with an invoice quickly, payment went without a hitch, and RR Auctioneers handled the third-party shipping (a local UPS Store), which charged a reasonable rate and packed the item well. A +

Barbie Doll Lot of 5 Dolls ~ As Pictured
Dolls were as pictured in the photo. As a bidder/buyer, I need to ask more about the condition and ask for more pictures. This is on me, not the auction house. Shipping was expensive, but that is NOT the seller's issue and I would not rate the seller based on the shipping costs.

The Best Auction House!
I have been bidding on Ron Rhoads auctions for at least 10 years. Staff is very helpful if there is a question and always my winning lots are handled promptly, get to the shipper quickly and arrive in a timely fashion. Eileen Rhoads is the go to lady in charge and always does an excellent job. I look forward to each auction within my areas of collecting as generally the merchandise is of the best quality and variety.
