Jeff Martin Auctioneers Inc. held its largest auction to date conducted at its corporate headquarters in Brooklyn (Hattiesburg), Miss., March 7 to 9. Over the three days, more than 2,500 items were sold to 1,676 bidders from 48 states and 24 foreign countries.
"I have been with Jeff and Kellie since we started here, and it is hard to believe the enormous growth that we have experienced," said Jami Rogers, auction manager. "There is no substitute for an amazing team that enjoys what they do and love coming to work each day."
Brent Beverly of BTM Machinery also said, "The onsite crowd at the Brooklyn, Miss., auction site is astounding. It seems to me like there are more people here than I have seen lately at any auction, anywhere.
"The climate-controlled auction arena makes you so comfortable and it is very easy to spend money. The quality and quantity of late-model yellow iron are almost unbelievable for an auction site in south Mississippi. We are regular buyers and plan to continue participating at each JMA auction event."
Jeff Martin's next auction event will be hosted at the Pelzer (Greenville), S.C., facility on March 27 and 28.
