Auctions Held Weekly

Lynda K. Johnson & Mark Giles have over 50 years of combined experience, including over 3,000+ auctions of estate assets, consignments, business liquidations, classic automobiles and real estate transactions.

The Johnson Auction Service (JAS) solution provides clients:

  • An impartial medium to serve as arbitrator between seller and buyer

  • Effective marketing to reach potential buyers
  • Enthusiastic involvement of auction attendees to generate quality bids

These quality traits of the JAS team effectively ensures your goods are converted into top-dollar sales. The goal of the JAS auctioneers is to arrive at an accurate value and then attain or exceed that value by attracting and maximizing bidding competitiveness among appropriate buyers.

Johnson Auction Services (JAS) holds weekly, live, on-site auctions at our Moon Township Gallery facility where approximately 800 lots are sold. These auctions may include, but are not limited to: antiques, modern furniture, business assets, motorcycles, vehicles, collectibles, depression glass, art deco items, musical instruments, coins, stamps, and household effects.

Auctions are normally held on Tuesdays. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. Household items, tools, or the "specialty of the evening" (perhaps coins, stamps, paper memorabilia, sport cards, etc.) start each event at 5 p.m. with a few tables of small items being auctioned before progressing to furniture at approximately 7 p.m. Auctions normally end by 11 p.m. Absentee bids are accepted prior to and during each auction.

Off-site auctions are conducted at clients' homes during the spring and summer months and are normally held on weekends. Additionally, on specified Sundays, an Antiques-Only or Specialty Auction is held 10 - 12 times per year. Subscribe to our mailing list and receive up-to-date prior notification of future auctions.

Please call Johnson Auction Service for a free, no-obligation consultation. Following an evaluation, a proposal is submitted which includes complete terms of the agreement, costs, location and timeframe. A written contract is the final step in the decision-making process.

    We offer professional assistance to senior citizens that are transitioning an estate or downsizing to a smaller residence.  Our experienced team works to determine the best marketplace and audience for the estate. After an initial free consultation, a plan of action will be presented. Plans can be developed to assist with every aspect of the transition. Customized transition plans can be developed to include:

    • Packing up (and storing if necessary) household items, furniture and antiques

    Auction Estimates
    Auctions provide a unique public-forum method of bringing buyers and sellers together in an arena of competition--an arena designed to convert your assets to cash. Sellers wish to receive maximum dollars for their goods; buyers, in turn, want to pay the lowest price necessary to obtain those goods. In most instances, prices are set not by the seller, but by the bidders; it is the auctioneer's job to bring all parties together for a successful sale completion. Names of the owner or the estate do not have to be disclosed to the bidding audience.
    JAS is also an online/internet auctioneer, expanding the reach for potential buyers to the global reach of the internet.

    Estate Tag Sales
    For a percentage of gross sale, Estate Tag Sales, where items are priced and advertised, are also handled by JAS at a client's home or business. Items that did not "move" may be packed/transported for a later off-site auction. We also offer "outright purchase" of your goods. Sellers should keep in mind that, generally, buyers are drawn to auctions for the choice pieces and purchase other items while in attendance. With this in mind, it may be detrimental to sell a few select items separately leaving you without a "drawing card" for your less-valuable items.
