About Beloit Auction & Realty Inc
Wednesday night for hundreds of people means a trip to Beloit Auction Service at 534 West Grand, Beloit, Wisconsin for its weekly sale. This well-established business prides itself on efficient, honest, and enjoyable auction services.
“We’re a family-run business,” said Richard Ranft, chief auctioneer and president of the company. He and his wife Patricia have worked alongside each other for 25 years.
Their staff of 14 full and part-time employees provides a full range of auction services for Beloit Auction and its sister company, Beloit Auction & Realty, Inc. Rich - who holds both his CAI and GPPA designations - also offers his professional appraisal services and works as a licensed Real Estate broker.
“We sell Real Estate only at auction because it really works. Auctions create excitement. And excitement creates house sales,” he said. “Whatever part of our services we’re working on, we make it easy for our clients and customers by being professional and knowledgeable.”
New services at Beloit Auction include live Internet bidding through ProxiBid.com. “You can bid from Beloit or Timbuktu,” Rich said. “It’s a powerful thing to be able to bring the world to Beloit even while maintaining our solid Midwestern standards,” Rich said.
