When you make the decision to sell by auction, the most important thing you must do is hire a qualified and experienced auctioneer or auction company to handle your auction.

There are thousands of auctioneers throughout the United States who offer a wide range of auction services. So what do you look for when hiring an auctioneer or an auction firm?

First, look for someone who specializes in selling the type of property you want to sell. All auctioneers have specialty areas and most have more than one. What do they know about the products or goods you are selling? We have a long history of selling farmland, commercial & residential real estate, tractors & farm equipment, industrial implements, firearms, coins & paper currency, collector & daily drive vehicles, antiques, collectibles, glassware and household items.

Experience is another critical element. How long has the auctioneer or the auction company been in business? What is their reputation? We are proud of the fact that we've been in business, continuously, since 1964. That's only possible due to the trust that we've earned from sellers, buyers, business owners & attorneys, by consistently achieving positive results, honestly and with integrity. T&S has the experience and qualifications necessary to organize and promote a successful auction for you.

Also, look for an auctioneer who is a member of their State and National Auctioneers Associations. The NAA is the largest professional association for auctioneers in this country, working for the betterment of the auction industry. It offers continuing education programs for auctioneers to help them keep up-to-date on the latest trends and technology for the auction industry. We are proud members of both the Indiana Auctioneers Association and National Auctioneers Association

The NAA also offers a wide range of designation classes to make auctioneers “specialists” in areas such as personal property appraisal, real estate, estate auctions and more. Auctioneer Billy Hagan has earned the NAA's Auction Technology Specialist designation and has been accepted to the prestigious Certified Auctioneers Institute.
