The March edition of the Hawkeye Auctioneer Newsletter is now available online
On January 25, 2020, the Iowa Auctioneers Association (IAA) inducted Chris Richard, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa into the Iowa Auctioneers Hall of Fame.
Richard started in the auction business as a runner for his parents’ auction service, making ten cents for each clerking sheet he carried. In 1987, age of 11, he attended the World Wide College of Auctioneering. After graduating, his hard work continued, as he made sure the growing number of bidders stayed on track by holding the Selling Now sign. It didn’t take long before this new auctioneer moved up in responsibilities—and made the title of ringman.
