Andy began auctioneering in 2002 after his completion of college. Even though he has only been an active auctioneer since 2002, that does not tell the whole story of his experience. Once Andy was old enough to walk from the auctioneer to the clerk table (without stopping to get something to eat), he was a clerk sheet runner. Over the years he began working in all capacities of the auction from clerking to cashiering, and from ringman to merchandise sorter. Once Andy started auctioneering in 2002, he began conducting sales of all types.
In 2003 Andy decided to go to get his real estate sales license. Once he completed the courses and testing, he hung his license with Reed Realty in Farmland, IN. Over the years, he has sold all types of real property through the office including residential, commercial, and bare land. A great opportunity arose in the summer of 2010 for Andy to purchase the business from Pam Edwards. He realized that this was his chance to work in the real estate and auction industry on a full time basis, so he jumped at the chance. He has some aggressive ideas for marketing and sales that he is looking forward to implementing. Even though the name has changed, you can still count on the same professional service from an established company. Outside of the office, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife, Abby, and three children, Max, Cora and Ada He also enjoys pulling draft horses with his father.
