Hear From Our Customers

  I have enjoyed going to Franklin Exchange several time now. Jeffery has always been polite and fair. He is able to explain why he wants something, and how he came up with the price he offers. The first time I dealt with him was liquidating some items from my mother's estate. Came away with what I felt was a fair price for her items. I have also purchased some things from him and was happy with the quality and price. Highly recommend Franklin Exchange. - Mark

I have been using Jeffrey at Franklin Exchange for a couple years now. He honest and fair. He takes the time to sit with you and tell you what you have and what it's worth, he's incredibly knowledgeable about almost everything, I've yet to stump him and I try. If you're trying to sell him something he doesn't just say no and act annoyed like most places, he will explain why to you and what to look for the next time. I absolutely recommend this place! - Bridget

I became acquainted with Jeffery several years ago at a show in Houston, Texas. Since then, I have conducted numerous transactions with him and been 100% satisfied. His products are always represented and described honestly, with imperfections noted. He's never misrepresented any products to me. I would feel comfortable recommending his to anyone and I will continue to do business with him for years to come.
