Willie Benton - Owner/President Eastern Shore Auctions, Inc. Chief Auctioneer -NAA

Eastern Shore Auctions can trace its roots back to O.J. Brittingham, a full service auctioneer who served the Eastern Shore for over forty years. OJ conducted all types of auctions including farm auctions, real estate and personal property auctions. He was well known for conducting auctions at the Eastern Shore Vegetable Growers Cooperative Inc. auction block in Princess Anne as well as the Laurel Auction Block and Hearnís Produce in Salisbury where he sold farmers wares.

One of O.J.ís sons, Ron Brittingham, began auctioneering with his father at a young age and continued to auctioneer for over forty years providing full service auction services in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. One of Ronís most memorable auctions was the sale of over 10,000 license plates in Delmar, MD. He also rented the Hess space at the old Salisbury Mall where he conducted many antique and personal property auctions. Additionally, Ron conducted auctions of surplus items for Wicomico and Worcester County, as well as the Wicomico and Somerset Young Farmerís Auctions. Through Ronís experience and tutelage, Willie gained auction experience and began his auction career.

Willie began his auction career with Ron Brittingham Auctioneers, in 1988 when he married Susan Brittingham, the daughter of Ron and Mary Jane. Willie learned the auction business from the ground level by working in the pit and helping organize items for sale. After several years, Willie became the clerk for Ron and later learned to auctioneer. As the business grew, so did Willieís experience. Willie auctioneered for Ron Brittingham Auctioneers for 14 years.

In 2007, Willie and Susan opened Eastern Shore Auctions, Inc. after numerous requests from auction goers who wanted him to return to auctioneering. People of the Eastern Shore wanted an honest auctioneer who they knew they could trust. Willie brings his 27 yearsí experience as a Maryland State Trooper to his auction business. He brings integrity, honesty, and professionalism to the auction industry.
