BEST Auction Services joins DreamDirt Farm & Ranch Real Estate, LLC.

MONDAMIN, Iowa –Auctions have always been a part of Iowa and continue to gain popularity today.  While many auctioneers compete for the business two of Iowa’s auction companies have joined forces with the staff of BEST Auctions joining the DreamDirt Auction Team.

“Even as competitors we have enjoyed a great relationship with BEST Auction Services.  This was an opportunity for us to consolidate operations which will reduce duplication in the marketplace and allow us all to offer more effective specialized services to our agricultural community over a wider geographic area” said Jason Smith, Broker at DreamDirt Farm & Ranch Real Estate LLC.  Smith who founded DreamDirt in 2006 is the companies Real Estate Broker and Principal Auctioneer.

Tom Bradley, a co-founder at BEST said “We have shared resources, expertise and man power with DreamDirt and with both companies rapid growth consolidation of our services means our clients win on both sides.  Our number one priority is always to serve our clients and customers to with the absolute best marketing and auction service and this merger opens many new doors”

DreamDirt is a licensed real estate brokerage and auction services specializing in the marketing and sale of Ag assets.  Service offerings include real estate listings and auctions with a focus on farmland, hunting land, farm machinery, farm retirements and farm estates.

“Over the last 24 months both companies have seen phenomenal growth and DreamDirt is setup to serve a large geographic area with auctioneers and field reps in 5 states.  The BEST Team brings us strength in a critical market in central Iowa.  We are already serving many land owners and operators in the Winterset, Ames and Des Moines area and this puts a lot of boots on the ground in the Des Moines / Ames Iowa metro area” Smith said.

DreamDirt has proven itself as a company that offers solid results for its clients and among peers.  In 2015 was recognized as the #1 auction company website in Iowa and then again in June was recognized as the #1 auction company website in the nation.  That was in addition to winning multiple awards for printed advertising material, sale bills and social media marketing awards.  “We are proud of what we have done at BEST and the strong presence we’ve built in central Iowa with our farm machinery, hay and estate auctions.  To merge with DreamDirt lets us take advantage of their cutting edge technology, their databases and this great broad reaching advertising they have become known for.  It keeps our people in the field tending to our clients needs.” say Scott Evans, Bradley’s partner at BEST Auctions.

People tend to think of auctioneers as people that talk fast and sell things.  Smith says “In the modern world there is a lot more to it than that and today’s auctioneers bring value to their clients in many other ways.  Marketing and advertising in the digital age has changed significantly with online bidding and social media.  This new era of marketing tools has changed buyers preferences and frankly their tolerances.  At DreamDirt we’ve dedicated ourselves to staying on the leading edge of this new era so we can provide a whole myriad of services that help our sellers achieve their goals.”

In 2015 DreamDirt began preparations to launch a new auction house venue in Western Iowa in early 2016.  The new auction house will further serve customers auction needs and expand our marketing offerings including a new Farm Goods Auction that will be unique in the Iowa Marketplace.
