Scott Andreas, Auctioneer & Owner

Scott grew up in Ankeny, IA, where his family once owned the local roller skating rink. An entertainer at heart, Scott spent many years traveling the Midwest as the lead singer for a variety of musical groups. His background includes stints in restaurant management & industrial sales.

Scott spent several years assisting in the management of a 3,000 acre row crop operation in Northwest Iowa, returning to the Auction business full time in 2010.

In 2012, annual sales of personal property (excluding real estate) on behalf of our clients will exceed the one million dollar mark!

Scott holds an FFL for curio & relic firearms, and also offers expert opinions on militaria, coins, & collector vehicles as well as agricultural, industrial, & restaurant equipment.
