We needed someone to liquidate 11 rental houses in a hurry. Key Auctioneers took control of the properties, collected the rents, handled the maintenance, and then auctioned the properties… for nearly full appraised value. I was stunned! What a fabulous outcome!

Lisa Hefflinger
Vice President, Huntington National Bank

We were very happy with the way they worked with us and with the financial results of the auction. We had an idea of what we were looking for, and Key was able to get us to that number. I would recommend Key 100%.

Doug Boles
Co-owner, Panther Racing

I would certainly recommend Key… In terms of the money generated by the auction, my expectations were exceeded many times over.

Just wanted to thank you for your assistance with getting our property sold. I was plesantly surprised by the final price. I also appreciate the excellent service you provided.

Key’s preparation was very good, even within a tight deadline. I was very impressed with the way they organized the auction.

Steve Roach
Manager of Procurement, ATA Airlines

We were in a very difficult financial position when I first met with Key but I never felt depersonalized or disrespected. The minute I met Jim I knew I could trust him. Each Key employee I worked with after that only reinforced that trust. To work with such a professional and personable organization was a Godsend for me.

Jim Baugh
Owner, Community Hardware

I go to many auctions. When we needed an auctioneer, I chose Key because they seemed to be cut above everyone else. From the day we signed the contract to the day we closed on the real estate, it couldn’t have gone any better. Key’s people were organized, professional, and hardworking. The results were outstanding.

Claude Livesay
Keith Electric, Vice President

There are two primary reasons I use Key’s services: (1) they are very good at what they do, and (2) I know I can count on them to do the right thing.

Andy Sutherland
Vice President, Old National Bank

Your great marketing plan was a big part of our decision to choose Key for our auction, and it was a good choice.

Morris & Kathryn Nunn
Owners, Mo Nunn Racing

Key has an incredibly professional outfit, from cradle to grave. The staff knew exactly where the value was and they knew exactly what they were selling; that was one of my major concerns about the other auction companies.
