“Regardless if your auction is live or on line, daily operations are performed in a centrally located office at Stilwell,” Webb continued.
“For the client’s convenience Webb & Associates also offers a state of the art mobile office and software. This allows auctions to be performed at various locations around the country.
“We are not concerned about the quantity of auctions, but the quality of auctions,” Webb insisted.
“Auctions are also social events where people attend to visit with old friends, find great deals, listen to the auction chant, make sound investments, and many walk away with new friends,” the auctioneer said.
Living his life believing that service to his community is a high priority, Webb has served at all levels from the city and county across the state and at the national level.
