Bachmann Auctioneers was founded in 1981. As a family owned and operated business, co-owners Vince and Jane along with their son's have conducted numerous auctions in Minnesota and North Dakota selling Farm, Real Estate, Firearms, Estates, Commercial, Business Liquidations, Antiques & Collectibles, Fundraising, and Specialty auctions.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Frazee, MN where I also attended school. After graduation I received a degree from the World Wide College of Auctioneering in 1981. I have extensive knowledge and experience in farming, tool and dye manufacturing, milling lumber and building materials.
As co-owner and broker of Bachmann-Carow Real Estate I work with all fields of real estate and specialize in hunting and farmland.
In 1997 I was voted Minnesota State Auctioneer Champ. In 1999 I received the honorary FFA chapter degree for Bachmann Auctioneers. I have also served on the Board of Directors for the Minnesota State Auctioneers Association (MSAA). I'm a member of the Auctioneer Association in Minnesota and North Dakota and the National Realtor's Association in Minnesota. I'm an active contract auctioneer for other companies.
I enjoy being an active member of our community.
As co-owner I pride myself on the personal approach of daily operations. Yes, I run the show. My time is split in the preperation of the auctions, flyers, mailing, advertising, staffing, clerking and settling auctions with clients. I'm a member of the Minnesota Auxiliary.
I love the comradery that the business brings us.
My favorite part of having four-adult children is the grandkids, most of my free time is with them. When I'm not entertaining I'm running, spinning and gardening. I love the small town atmosphere and truly enjoy working with the people in our surrounding community.
