I am writing to express my appreciation for how the Troutman's have handled the auction of items from my mother's estate. From the beginning, Lucy impressed me with her knowledge of china and other works of craftsmanship and decoration. I really leanred something listening to her talk about the designs, manufacturers, history and quality of the varioius items in my mom's china cabinet. Larry also taught me something as he selected items to be included in the auction that I had not even thought to bring to his attention. He also surprised me by taking items that I had not been able to clean up very well, assuring me that they would take care of getting them cleaned up prior to the auction. On the day that all of the designated items were physically transported to the Atlanta Auction Co. warehouse, everthing was handled with care - I'll never forget how my mom's favorite Italian chandelier was taken down and packed up in a specially designed crate. I am also impressed by the way that all of my mom's items were scupulously accounted for, both in terms of physical inventory and the results of the auction. Not being in the business, I really had no way of knowing what the financial results would be and have been very pleased with Larry's success as an auctioneer.
