Schmid Auction Company is a family owned, full time, full service business specializing in farm land, commercial and residential real estate, farm and construction equipment, estates and antiques.  Trent and his wife Paula are the owners of the business, along with the professional staff manage all of the day to day operations.  Trent is a 3rd generation auctioneer, and he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agri-Business Management from Illinois State University.  At many sales you will see Trent’s father Richard D. Schmid, who has been in the auction business since 1969, running the second auction ring, and Trent’s teenage daughter, and someday 4th generation auctioneer, helping out in any way she can.
At Schmid Auction Company we are dedicated to getting the top value for the sellers that we work for.  We live by the motto that an auction is not simply an action; it is a carefully planned and organized event.  From conception to closing, our professional staff will be with you every step of the way.  Beginning with a detailed consultation to learn everything we can about our client, to a targeted multimedia marketing plan to provide the best pool of potential buyers, to an organized setup, and a professionally run auction; we do it all to provide the greatest value to our client with the utmost honesty and integrity.
We have conducted large farm closeouts, sold thousands of acres of farm land, estate sales large and small, and business dispersal sales, including the complete dispersal of an Anheuser Busch distribution facility.  Offering online bidding and auction simulcast, along with marketing both in print and on multiple online sources including social media, we can offer our clients the best opportunity to have their property seen by potential customers near and far to get the most value possible.
