About Us

Fran Grover



In 1983 I graduated from the World Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, IA. Prior to this I was an frequent auction attendee . Combined with my love of antiques, helping people and TALKING, I ventured in to this new profession!

In 1984, I acquired my real estate license, and in 1986 I purchased the Century 21 franchise in Rochester, Minnesota. Tying the real estate and auctions together was a perfect fit.

We have involved the entire family in the auction business. I have met and helped many families throughout the years. It has been a fun and rewarding experience.

My motto is:  Professionalism doesnít cost it pays!

I have attended auctions since I was just a baby.  Our family spent a lot of time both on evenings and weekends going to auctions.  In 1983, Dad actually became an auctioneer himself.  Growing up we spent a lot of time listening to him practice.  At 11 years old I helped with setting up and running auctions.  I continued helping with the family auction business all through high school and college.  In 2002, I moved up the ladder and started calling auctions myself.  I really have enjoyed helping individuals, businesses and families sell their lifetime possessions.  We work hard promoting and advertising the auction, so on Auction day we have a good crowd and get the most possible money for each item.  The auction business has been very rewarding and a lot of fun.  I hope my kids too will learn as much as I did growing up in the business.
