We can sell your Real & Personal Property in one of the following manners:

  • Public Auction:  Property is "Sold Subject To Seller Confirmation", which means the Seller has the right to confirm the final bid.  This type of sale has proven the most successful for our clients.
  • Absolute Auction:  This is the ultimate tool to get people to act. You may have up to 30% more participation in the bidding. The property must be sold to the last and highest bidder.
  • Online Only Auction:  This tool works well for a small amount of items or specialty equipment. Inifinite exposure, affordable rates, quick turn around.
