The AAA Team
Along with his wife, Denise, Tony is co-owner of AAA Auction and Realty and auctionmn.com. Tony is the guy who will come to your home to answer all of your auction questions and advise you about the best way to sell your items.
In addition to being an auctioneer, Tony is also a retired personal injury attorney, a real estate broker, and a licensed federal firearms dealer.
Denise is our cashier. She also uploads the photographs to our wesite and handles our banking.
Larry got his love of auctions while visiting his grandpa’s farm on many weekends. The farm is long gone, but Larry’s love of auctions remains. So when he is not working in the auction barn taking photos and describing the items for our next auction, he is probably attending a live auction somewhere or sleeping in his car waiting for an estate sale to begin.
After serving our county in the Navy for 22 years, what could be better than a job with AAA Auction? Ryan works hard in the barn alongside Larry and Andy taking photos and entering descriptions. He also contributes his advanced computer skills and knowledge about firearms whenever needed.
Andy is the newest member of the AAA Auction team, and he works with Larry and Ryan processing the items for our online auctions. He is a retired nurse, and his extensive knowledge about woodworking and tools often comes in handy in the auction barn.
Ron is not happy unless he is working, so after a career of working in the construction industry, he eagerly joined our team. He thinks he's 20 and he carries heavy loads like he is 30.
Gary started out just pitching in when he saw we needed a hand and then quickly became part of our regular crew. He helps with most of our estate pick-ups and he helps set up the auction too. By the way, if you ever find you need a gizmo or widget, Gary has several of them.
Like many Baby Boomers, Denise and I are fortunate to have smart grandkids who know their way around computers and the Internet. So naturally we called upon our 10th grade granddaughter, Alida, to help manage an app that sends out notices to our bidders of our upcoming auctions. “Get ready, Alida. This could all be yours someday.”
