About Us
It was just announced that Dave Kessler, Realtor & Auctioneer, was named Best of the Best Auctioneers in the first-ever Palladium Item "readers choice" poll to determine "the areas finest businesses." This poll was conducted in eastern Indiana and western Ohio.

Now beginning his 50th. year in the business, Dave said "Doggone. I'm all shook up. It's a surprise and an honor. I'm very grateful to all those who thought to enter my name in this readers choice poll. You have touched my life in a very special way."

The Dave & Bruce Kessler Auction & Realty businesses were founded in 1957. Our policy then and now is to give the best personal service to our clients. Our slogan says it all: “If you have something good to sell we can give it a good selling.” ©

Country Living Magazine named us ”One of the leading Country Auctioneers in America.” The Arts and Antiques Weekly declared us World Record Holders for the sale of Abraham Lincoln memorabilia when we sold campaign ribbons in one of our auctions for $12,500. We’re also known as “The foremost and most friendly Auctioneers serving Indiana and Ohio for generations.”

You may have need for our selling services in areas of our special interest. Selling Real Estate, selling Business Liquidations and selling Estates and Antiques. We also sell for the United States Bankruptcy Court.

Another type of auction we developed is called our One Lump ™ Auction. You can buy or sell the entire contents of an apartment, home or business in bulk lots.

Individually priced items for sale by negotiation is a specialty of our Old Widow Lady ™ Personal Sales division. These may include any type of personal property from a home or business. This type of sale is known as a tag sale in some areas of America.

You may have need for our Estate Appraisal Service. We’ve been Court Approved and Court Appointed estate appraisers in Indiana and Ohio for many years. This includes the appraisal of real estate and personal property of all types.

Dave wrote the book Across The Antiques Auction Block and authored the long-running news column called “It’s Old Stuff.” We’ve been named in hundreds of wills to be the appraiser of estate antiques. We can evaluate private collections, shop inventories and even single pieces.

Dave has taught the art and business of auctioneering to thousands of today’s auctioneers as he was on staff of the largest auction school in America. He also has given seminars to State and National Auctioneers Associations from coast to coast.

Serving as editor and publisher for Auction Marketing Now, the newsletter for professional auctioneers, and The Auction Bottom Line, America’s Largest Circulation Publication for Auctions and Auctioneers gives Dave special insights into all facets of the auction business which translates to better and more effective service for you.

Two of the best-selling books on auctioneering are written by Dave. They are The Best of Dave Kessler on Auctions and Selling Real Estate by Auction by Dave Kessler. It’s reassuring to our clients to have the benefit of Dave’s experience and expertise in planning and selling their holdings by auction. We are eager to get started on getting top dollar for you!
