About Us


We are a “family owned” business that has been in existence for over 50 years. If you are an existing customer, hello again! If you are a new customer, WELCOME!

In 1964, Paul Cerny, Sr. started as an auctioneer to supplement his farming income and support his wife and four children. Over the years, this became a family business as our mother and the four children became more involved. The family worked the farm as well as the auction business. Eventually, Paul Cerny, Jr. also became an auctioneer. In 1993, we lost our father and mentor to a heart attack. The business continued on using the same work ethic and high standards that our father taught us along the way.   In April of 2018 we unfortunately lost our brother, Paul, Jr.      We now have 3 auctioneers in the family left to carry on the legacy that started all those years ago including Joyce Cerny Specter,   Jackie Cerny O’Hare, and Sean Finney (3rd generation).

If you need our services, give us a call and we can give you
information on “the auction way” of selling your goods.
