“Our Beloit facility houses our stateline real estate offices as well as our auction gallery, where we conduct weekly Wednesday auctions of antiques, collectibles, household goods, tools, equipment, and other personal property. We’re open Monday through Saturday to accommodate our clients, with personal property auction previews on Tuesday and Wednesday each week,” Ranft says. “We hold frequent live online auctions, allowing bidders from around the world to find treasures from our sellers.”
An auxiliary auction house east of Beloit in Avalon, Wisconsin provides a great location for friendly, country style auction events.
The real estate branch of the firm handles Wisconsin and Illinois properties with a strong emphasis on the auction method of selling.

Both Ranft and Bill Perkins, Vice President of Auction Operations, are certified and court ordered personal property appraisers as well. They handle a steady flow of appraisal requests from attorneys, trust offices, and individuals.
