How do I go about having an auction?

When creating an auction, you can boil down the process to five steps: setting a sellers objective, defining what a positive outcome looks like, identifying the core and secondary markets, advertising and marketing the property, and executing the sale. The best way to go about having an auction is to contact one of our professional and certified auctioneers to walk you through the process.
