Kepple Auction Company
Moving the Auction Industry Forward
Alan began this journey in 1999 by getting his real estate license. After years in escrow he activated his license and began working for Ken Byrd Realty & Auction in Bowling Green KY. It was during this time in 2008 he passed his apprentice auctioneer course. He fell in love with the auction business and left contracting and home inspections behind.
Fast forward to today and Kepple Auction Company is focused on his clients and their property. With the motto "We treat your property like we would our own", the business is built to grow through the personal attention and detail given to each auction. Our desire is to be honest and fair with everyone while maximizing the return for our clients. Our clients have typically undergone a life changing event in the recent past. After someone passes away, the family is left with the burden of selling assets during a time of grief. When a couple divorces, there are instances that require selling the property. Although there are several other reasons to utilize the auction method, these two make up at least half when combined. We step in and do what we do, fix problems. In the event of an estate, we can sort the personal property and prepare it for auction(online or onsite). We also prepare the home. In some cases, the home(or farm) may need to be cleaned, mowed, trimmed, bush hogged, trash removed and more. With this complete we can begin the promotion of the property. Each property is unique and will require a specific plan to be executed to properly promote it. Our company's process begins with signing a contract, a marketing campaign, conducting the auction and successfully closing it with the seller receiving their funds. The normal timeline for this process ranges from 60 to 90 days.
Alan also does traditional listings and buyer representation with Keller Williams First Choice Realty. If you have property you are considering selling talk to Alan first. It cost nothing and you will get a fair and honest opinion. The suggestion may be to have an auction, offer through a traditional listing, do for sale by owner or even to keep the property. Yes, we will suggest what we think is honestly the best for you and your property.
