Country Boys Auction & Realty, Inc
Since our very first auction in 1975, Country Boys Auction & Realty, Inc. has been servicing the needs of individuals, lending institutions, and the court systems for over 40 years. We have continually strived to provide the most complete liquidation services for all types of real estate; residential, recreational, commercial, or industrial property, as well as a vast array of personal property including vehicles, machinery, equipment and even intellectual and intangible assets and properties.
Our company sells both personal property and real estate in multiple venues including auction, retail sales, listings, private sale, and liquidation. We market our auctions and sales on a variety of platforms including advertising on local, regional, state, and national levels. In addition to newspaper advertising, we regularly utilize advertising in trade magazines and specialty industry publications including print and digital editions as well as a vast array of websites and other internet platforms. We also use a variety of signage including small “yard” signs, banners, and large rigid signage to promote sales. Our company uses electronic advertising such as direct email, websites, and other platforms to promote our auctions. We have built a private contact list of several thousand customers that have requested auction information and updates through direct email and text. Country Boys Auction has a large social media following as well where we can share direct posts as well as expose auctions in appropriate groups and marketplaces.
