Dear Carl,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, both personally and professionally, for your help over the past years. For the many Estates which we have worked together on, I have found your services, which include appraisals and auctions on site and at your Auction House, to be prompt and conducted in a professional manner. I have confidence in your opinion on matters of evaluation and manner to conduct auctions.

The above comments relate not only to personal property, but also to our numerous real estate auctions. Without exception, real estate auctions have been successful and have been a very economical way to dispose of the real estate in a timely manner. Your fees are reasonable.

Also, I find not only you but all your staff to be friendly, courteous, careful and thorough, I have never had a complaint following your auctions.

I highly recommend your services and am willing to be a reference. If I can be of service to you in any manner, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Very truly yours,

George E. Wenger, Jr., Attorney at Law

Dear Carl:

My career as banker and trust officer in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania has spanned 48 years. During this time I have had hundreds of occasions, as representative of estates and power of attorney, to use the services of a local auction company. Kenny’s Auction has been a respected name in the community for as long as I can remember. Carl E. Ocker, owner and auctioneer has been a major part of the success during the company’s history.

He has represented my company in large estate sales with hundreds of thousands of dollars of personal property and real estate; and he has also represented us in small matters for couples downsizing to go into a retirement home. In recent years real estate markets have escalated. (*1990) There have been times when real estate auction was the best option for us. Carl Ocker represented us well to obtain the best possible market price. Mr. Ocker has always demonstrated personal integrity, professional standards and personal service beyond the norm. He is experienced and knowledgeable about the values of antiques, valuable collections and has the respect of the local and national buyer audience.

I would recommend the services of Kenny’s Auction and Carl Ocker for your auction needs.


Allen C. Rebok, Trust Officer

Dear Carl:

Being a professional businessman in the Chambersburg area for the past 25 years, I’ve had many occassions to do business with Carl Ocker. Our relationship has involved the sale of real estate, autos and personal items. I’ve always found Mr. Ocker to be prompt, thorough and professional. He and his staff work very hard to assure that clients get the best return on their property being sold.

I look foward to working with Mr. Ocker for many more years and have no reservations in recommending his skills and services regarding the sale of real estate or other types of property.
