About Our Company
Century Auction Group is a team of consummate professionals with more than 50 years of collective experience and a track record of completing more than 1,000 transactions with a settlement rate of 98% (one of the highest in the industry). We are experienced in selling all types of real estate including residential, commercial, farm, and waterfront properties. Our team’s extensive knowledge is the main reason we are successful at selling all types of properties. Two reasons why we have one of the highest settlement rates in the industry are, 1) our focus on high quality auctions and, 2) our use of marketing techniques that get sellers’ properties in front of the widest range of “right” buyers.
The unique and creative marketing processes we conduct when listing an auction property creates a competitive environment that ensures a quick, date-certain sale for the most money possible. Our expansive marketing model (including MLS listing, plus direct marketing and more) puts the seller’s property in front of the widest range of “right” buyers. In fact, our extensive and proprietary list of qualified buyers is a key ingredient in creating our successful buying and selling environment. Our marketing practices also bring the widest variety of buying groups to our auctions and help to ensure our sellers get the most for their property.
