VanDeRee Auction Company
My father handed over the gavel to me in 1985. He had been selling by auction since 1934. I have worked in this field and family business my entire professional life and I am proud to have grown up in this business, learning from my father and from many of the great Auctioneers from around the world.
I am a CAI graduate from Indiana University and my bachelor's degree is in speech communications from the University of Florida. I have attended Law School at the University of Miami, but I am not an attorney. I have also attended the Mendenhall School of Auctioneering in North Carolina. I have served as President of the Florida Auctioneers Association and as Chairman of the Florida Association of Realtors Auction Marketing Council.
My company has conducted auctions throughout the US as well as internationally and we excel at real estate auctions regardless of where the property is located. As a father of 7 and an auctioneer located in Florida, you will find many of our successes have been in the South Eastern USA. As we became specialists in the sale of real estate by auction, we found that rather than becoming more diverse in the many fields of real estate and offering a variety of services that it is more rewarding and important to focus on doing one thing -- the auction method of marketing.
Typically, The Van De Ree Auction Company successfully closes 90% of the properties that are brought to auction. We are not in business for a quantity of sales, but quality of Auction Service, and it is our reputation that we value over commissions.
We are a full-service auction company and we are able to assist with selling many other assets in addition to real estate. If we do not have the personal knowledge in a certain field, we most likely have an exceptional referral for you. If you would like to discuss the auction method of marketing your property, please send us an email or give us a call. It would be our honor to assist you, but if we can not, we will let you know.
