Hey, I'm Craig - I am the Equipment Specialist and Auctioneer for REST Ag & Auction.

I am also a Licensed Realtor with Real Estate Solutions Team.

I was born and raised right here in Northeast Nebraska. Coming from a family active in real estate and auctions, I was able to attend the world-wide college of auctioneering as a sophomore in high school! I have been an auctioneer since 2003. Graduating from Humphrey St. Francis, I then went on to earn my Associates in Applied Science through Southeast Community College. Since then, I have sold and auctioned anything from household items, vehicles, farm machinery, and construction equipment to exotic animals and livestock. 

My wife and I own a small farm in Stanton County, where we cash rent our row crop and run a small cow/calf operation on our pasture. Growing up on a farm, I have always kept that background as a large part of my life. This has given me a lot of experience in agriculture, land management, and land investment. 

Although I specialize in farms, ranches, and agriculture, I would love the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your real estate needs in the housing market or estate dispersal. I love the auction method of selling but also understand that it is not always what is needed for the situation. I believe in being upfront and honest with you about what would be the route to get to the best possible end result. Whether that would be to hold a live auction, online sale, or other means, I will ensure that we plan for what is right for you and your specific needs, and most of all, get you the most bang for your buck! 

Black Background

My mission is to elevate your land's value, ensuring you receive the highest returns possible, crafting precision land auctions, uniquely tailored to meet your property's distinct characteristics.
Committed to excellence, I lead the way in live and online bidding strategies, providing a premier destination for those seeking optimal results.
