What We Do


Our appraisal staff includes three certified general real property appraisers, three certified residential appraisers, one associate general appraiser, and two non-certified appraisers. Our appraisers and support staff have well over 78 years of combined experience in the preparation of commercial, industrial, business, agricultural, residential, and chattel appraisers. We are licensed in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Minnesota; however, through reciprocity licensing we have completed appraisals in Wisconsin, North Dakota, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, West Virginia, Missouri, Georgia, Indiana, Vermont, and Illinois as well. No matter what the nature of your appraisal, we are confident we can provide professional, reasonably priced appraisal services for you!


Our auction staff has a wealth of knowledge of the field. We've been conducting auctions of all types for over 37 years. Whether you are considering the sale of farm land, farm equipment, antiques, business, residential real estate, commercial real estate or household items, we can meet your needs in a professional manner while obtaining the top price for your property. We also hold bi-annual farm equipment consignment auctions at our lot located east of Sanborn.

real estate

Our real estate sales people specialize in the sale of farm real estate, residential and commercial properties. Our staff will work hard to obtain the best possible price for your property while handling themselves in a professional manner.

Continuing Education

Our company hosts regular continuing education classes that help maintain the necessary education needed by all area appraisers and to keep them knowledgeable of the ever changing appraisal regulations and markets. We join efforts with Educational Institutes and the city of Sanborn to offer these relevant and informative classes. Frequently these classes cover other fields such as banking/lending and real estate. Contact us today to find out when our next class is scheduled!
