I would like to thank you James! Totally did not know how badly we really needed to get you guys to auction our property. I am very thankful that we did and you were amazing! You knew what we were going through and you just took over and took care of business which meant I didn’t need to stress over this while I was dealing with other issues. God Bless you young man! They don’t make them like they used to, but you are the exception. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Arbogast Cabin

In the Spring of 2022 when I decided to sell my brother’s cabin, seven years after he’d passed away, the most important thing for me was to have someone who would understand what my brother and this cabin meant to me. I immediately knew that person would be James Yoder because in the few times I’d met James, I learned how much family means to him and just what a kind heart he has. I was so grateful to James for taking the time to listen to my stories of Ron and what an amazing brother and great all-around person he was. Not only did I have a compassionate representative with James, but a man with an incredible talent for marketing and communicating the beauty and richness of the cabin and surrounding property. James and the staff at Kaufman Auctions handled everything through closing and made it as stress-free as possible. In the end, not only was the sale handled with compassion and dignity, the sales price far exceeded my expectations. James will be my go-to if/when we are ever in need of auction services.

There is no way we can adequately express our appreciation of James and his team at Kaufman Auctions. With no experience in dealing with auctions, the team put us at ease in charting this unfamiliar territory. They kept us fully informed with relevant information and experience-based advice throughout the entire process. Every team member was highly professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to making our auction successful. We were impressed with the marketing and outreach; the online photos and listings really drove the online bids. We relied on the team for guidance and they came through every time. They took care of all of the details, from listings to offers and closing. Beyond professional and excellent service, James and his team offered a level of honesty and genuine care that I find rare among businesses today. This was truly an exceptional experience for us. I highly recommend James and his team without hesitation.

Kaufman Auctions and Realty are by far the “Go To” team for Realty and Estate Sale Auctions.

My wife and I contacted several Auction companies to see who to use in selling her mother’s home and items she would not be bringing for a move across country.  From the beginning James Yoder and his team stood out. One of the challenges for us was we were not local to work thru the contracts and to be there to help our mother if she had questions or needed a little help.
James took the time to meet with my mother-in-law and explain the process along with the best options to meet her needs. His calm friendly demeanor and the time he took to explain everything put her at ease for the whole process. Anytime she had questions, he was just a call away. 
The real estate auction was very successful and netted us the results we needed. I had some concerns about the timing of the closing and a couple other potential issues which were me overthinking things. James took the time to explain what he would do to allay my concerns, all was good.
The personal property auction team were also excellent. They efficiently inventoried, photographed and bundled the items in lots that would net good results during the auction. On the day of item pick-up, we were present to see them working with the individuals that had purchased the items. The team had their process down to a science and were very efficient in getting the items ready for the pick-up appointments. 
After the final real estate closing, we spent the next two days driving across country. A common topic while talking during the ride was how appreciative we were for the Kaufman team and how well they orchestrated the timing of the real estate auction, the property auction, the closings and the property pick-up. The team worked hard to minimize any inconvenience as we prepared to move our mother out of state.
In summary, the team at Kaufman Auctions are efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The company truly cares about their clients and goes above and beyond. James and his team were a blessing to our family during this whole experience.
