Hey Friends, it has been awhile since the last post. This week we have the Oklahoma State Auctioneers Association meeting and contest. We will be there with bells on and competing against some of the best bid callers in the state. Thinking about why we do what we do and why we auction I had a thought I wanted to share. One of the very first auctions I ever had the privilege to help with was a huge estate sale. This gentleman was a collector of all things and builder of even more. He built his own propane forklift and more tools than I could ever count. We ran two rings that day. Like most auctions we started at 10 am on a Saturday and I sold the last item at around 8:30 that night. It was a day to say the least. However, the take away for me was not from the sale itself, but instead after the sale when some older gentlemen were talking. One of them looked around and pondered out loud “took a lifetime to build all this and they (auctioneers) sold it in a day.” This has stuck with me ever since then.
We do not take the privilege of selling estates and memories lightly. We turn items into cash. Sometimes this is tractors and real estate and other times it is tea cups and picture frames. Whatever the case may be we always take pride in the job we do as if it were our own estate sale.
Speaking of estate sales, we have several lining up for this spring. We have them from Milburn, OK to Tannehill (McAlester), OK. Be on the look out here on our website and facebook page for updates, and if we can work for you give us a call or text.
