Roger A. Schrenk and J. Chris Fultz
Hunt and Peck Auctions and Estate Services is the latest success from the 20-year partnership between Roger A. Schrenk and J. Chris Fultz.
Based in Luray, VA, and serving the entire DC metro area, H&P was born out of necessity. “COVID changed everything,” says Schrenk. “We used to purchase whole estates and sell them off through multiple channels including eBay and our retail store in town, but when retail shut down, the inventory started piling up. We had always considered opening an auction house as part of our range of services, so it was a natural progression.”
“We’ve also strengthened our estate sale operations as well,” Fultz adds. “There is tremendous demand for gently-used household furnishings, and on-site estate sales are very beneficial to our clients. We used to operate a full-service interior design business as well, so we can spot quality furnishings a mile away. Our clients appreciate that.”
“You have to be flexible these days,” Schrenk continues. "By adding an auction house to our portfolio, we can handle virtually everything in an estate from treasured heirlooms to basement clutter. It’s a tremendous relief to our clients."
“And,” Fultz concludes, “It’s never boring!”
