SOLD! Looking for a great buy? Wanting to receive an optimum price? Searching for excitement and adventure? Nothing is more entertaining than attending a well run auction and listening to the chant of a good auctioneer. However, an auction is much more than an entertaining event. The Auction Method of Marketing is by far the most profitable way of converting goods, personal property and Real Estate into cash.

Only at Auction can you:

-Market and Advertise toward a specific event in time

-Expose your property to the greatest number of buyers 

-Quickly turn property into cash and cut holding costs  
-Set your own terms and conditions of sale  

-Create a highly competitive atmosphere among buyers  
-Keep closing time to a minimum, giving you a quick cash return and reduce holding costs

Remember only at auction is a selling price negotiated HIGHER rather than being reduced.

Auctioneering a long and colorful history:

The word auction is derived from the latin root auctus, an increase. According to Greek history, auctions  existed around 500B.C. in Babylon, where women of marriageable age were sold on condition that they be wed. Auctions have long been held for the liquidation of property and were used by ancient Romans. Auctions  have deep roots in many cultures of the world,and to this day they are widely used as an effective mechanism for fine art, real estate, automobiles, fish, livestock, antiques, and furs, just to name a few.
