August 7, 2010 - Tillenius Auction, Narcisse,
Tim and John,
We cannot express how impressed we are with the great auction you
put on yesterday.
We weren't looking forward to seeing Uncle Allan's possessions being
put on display and sold for dirt cheap. However, what we really saw yesterday was a happy event where the people who
showed up were viewing his discarded items as their 'treasures'. The buyers were able to see new uses and
potentials for what we were putting to rest.
We saw that Jack and Fred put their hearts and souls into restoring
the life and beauty into those items and brought them back to life. What patience and foresight they
You treated our family with respect. You saw nothing but goodness
in the place which we are having to abandon. Thanks for making it such a great memorable event. We never got tired
of hearing your voices on the microphone and could listen to the 'butabing', 'butabing' beat all day long.
Thanks so much,
Naomi and Doug Ratushniak

Hi, We attended one of your auctions for the first time on Sept 27, 2008. We just wanted to let you
know how much we enjoyed it and how impressed we were with the way the auctioneers treated the staff, with words of encouragement
and appreciation. Had a great time.
Thanks, Lawrence and Linda Hyde
Again, we were
very impressed with the good relationship we saw between the staff. Lawrence and Linda

Dear Lamport & Dowler,
Thanks to John & Tim and their helpers for making a very stressful time for me much easier & very
enjoyable. If I'm ever asked about the auction, I will be sure to mention your name & great service!
June 16, 2007 - Antique & Collectibles auction for Peggy Williams
Just wanted to let you know we really enjoyed your auction last Saturday
in Stonewall. Lesley and I have been to 2 of your auctions and find them very enjoyable and fun. Hope you have lots
more like it. Also thanks to you all for helping us load up our treasures. We hope you have more antique and collectible sales
as that is what we are interested in. We check your website regularly. Cheers Mona & Lesley from
August 12, 2006 Auction - The Ptak family from Dugald, MB
HELLOOOO Tim & Tami, and John!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note
regarding Saturday's sale. You can imagine how pleased and surprised we were with your call of last evening.
I think it would be
an understatement to suggest that we were pleased with the sale. We are impressed beyond words at the job you and your
team did to make such a success out of such difficult conditions. Even without knowing the total results, we were commenting
to each other all day about the wonderful job you guys did, and the way you handled the crowd. Tim, John and everyone
worked so hard, and we were amazed at the way you held the crowd's interest (and attendance!).
This isn't an 'official'
letter on behalf of the family (that will come later this week after we can put our collective thoughts together) but I'm
sure everyone feels the same way I do. Great job, and 'way to go' to the whole team.
I hope that you have
a very successful season. You are fine people. I don't believe that we could have found a better team to
help us through this.
Best regards, and you'll
hear from us soon.
Sincerely, Tracy Gregory
**Good morning Tim
I hope you and your crew have recovered from last weekend's event at my mother's farm. Your team's dedication
was very apparent, as well as your commitment to conduct business in a professional and courteous manner under the most trying
conditions. I personally appreciate the respect and care you demonstrated when dealing with my family's situation. It is truly
appreciated. Thank you again
for all your efforts.

mile at our family’s auction on August 12th. We especially appreciate the way you handled the crowd and held
their interest in spite of the inclement weather.
The success of our auction was due in large part to your commitment
and professionalism. We greatly appreciate the sensitive manner in which you dealt with our family’s situation.
We hope you have a successful auction season. You are fine people.
And we thank you for your support and encouragement in preparing for our auction.
Sincerely, Helen Ptak & Family
May 21, 2005 Farm Auction - Klass & Linda Friesen from Riverton,
Hi Tim & Tami,
In May of 2005, Lamport & Dowler Auction Service conducted a large farm auction for us. We had
huge doubts about having a sale at this time due to the depressed mood of farmers resulting from low cattle & grain prices.
We questioned if any aggressive buyers would come to the sale? Would we get even close to fair prices?
We came away from the sale very pleased. The posters were attractive, eye catching, and obviously
did the job. Thanks to Tim Dowler & John Lamport's hard working advertising we had a terrific turnout of buyers.
Tim, John & support staff fought very hard to get good prices for us. Even a 77-year-old grandmother noticed how
hard they worked for us at the sale. Thanks to them, we got better prices than anticipated. We highly recommend
Lamport & Dowler Auction Services. If anyone can get good crowds out and good prices from bidders, they can!
Sincerely, Klass & Linda Friesen
