Real Estate at Auction

Records handed down from ancient Greek scribes document auctions occurring as far back as 500 B.C.  Here in the United States over 2,500 years later, auctions are used to maximize prices for real estate, collector cars, livestock, artwork, antiques, guns, coins, jewelry and almost everything else.

Based in Millersburg, Ohio and servicing all of Ohio, RES Auction Services focuses on selling real estate and other valuable assets at auction.  RES’ Columbus, Ohio office is managed by three world-class auctioneers:

Mike Brandly, Auctioneer, CAI, CAS, AARE

Assisting Mike are two auctioneers:
Peter D. Gehres, Auctioneer, CAI, AARE, CES
Laura Mantle, Auctioneer, CAI, AARE

With our combined 60 years experience in the auction business, we know how to property structure, market and conduct your auction to maximize your proceeds while minimizing your holding costs.

Our program is unique where we have the most seller-centric auction platform anywhere:

  • The buyer pays all our commission.
  • The buyer pays all closing costs.
  • The buyer takes your property “as-is” without contingencies.
  • The buyer pays a large day-of-auction deposit.
  • The buyer must close promptly.
  • You can choose to sell your property prior to auction.

You, our client receives the total auction high bid price minus only costs for you to convey marketable title such as your current mortgage and/or real estate taxes.

We also sell all kinds of personal property at auction.

Call us at 614-461-9229 or email Mike at We would be glad to meet with you to look at your property and discuss your particular needs.
