Bob Hughes - Bever Dye LC, Attorneys at Law
"Thank you so much for the great job you did in auctioning the property at 11701 E. 3rd Street. I knew it would be difficult to sell, but your abilities overcame the challenges this property presented. We would never have received the bid that we did without your hard work. I truly appreciate everything and look forward to working with you again."
Mary Vandergriff and Marilyn Bassell - Sellers of 10254 SW 190th St, Douglass, KS for $275,000
"We interviewed with three real estate agents offering three different types of ways to sell this property. After listening, we thought auction would get the best value for this property and create competition for it. A real estate agent said they would put it on the market for $249,900.00. The agent said that's not what you're going to get, but that's where we would start. Everyone was giving the best case scenario. Rick came out and said that it was a beautiful property and a great house, but with the location it's hard to tell how far people would want to drive. 'But it is unique and we'll get you the best price we can.' We thought this guy is not just trying to tell us what we wanted to hear - he's telling us the real deal. We even had offers come in before the day of auction. It was tempting to take an offer, but we felt like auction was the way to go and the way to get the most money that you can. We're really happy with the end result, everyone was awesome and easy to work with and we did not have to do anything. My husband went out and was standing in the back watching the auction and the way the McCurdy team was with the crowd getting the excitement up to bid was a sight to behold. Not to mention that the final sale price was $40,000 over the highest pre-auction offer!"
Tom Sanders - Seller of Riverside Airport for $1.65 Million
"Thanks for all your efforts on this project. There's been a lot of moving parts on this deal and I appreciate flexibility and hard work exhibited by your team before, during and after the auction."
Gaylan Nett Jr. - Owner & Investor
"I would like to thank you for the services your company has provided my company over the years. We have purchased property from your firm, and we have had great success selling properties for needed margins in an impromptu time period. The 30 plus parcel auctions your full service team produced for us was very impressive, and a very easy way of transferring real estate."
Bill & Jeanine Phillips - Seller
"You were fabulous, absolutely fabulous. Interested, passionate, concerned, you did everything you could possibly do to help us sell this property and from the bottom of my heart we thank you."
- Jeanine Phillips's comment 5 minutes after their home sold for $420,000 at auction.
Bob Whittaker - (Former Kansas Congressman)
"The entire experience of working with Braden McCurdy and McCurdy Auction, LLC has been one of complete professionalism. From our first conversation to the wrap-up of the auction closings every thing has progressed as planned."
Patrick Dey - Seller of 10113 E Kinkaid
"When a huge aerospace company ceased operations in Wichita, we had to make a tough choice to sell our home and move to another state to take an offer there. We listed our home and tried for many months to sell our home, with no success. We were referred to McCurdy Auction as we chose to short sell our house. This is where we were introduced to Jeremy Oxborrow. From Day 1, Jeremy took ownership of this process. It took almost a year and a half to work through Bank of America stonewall. But Jeremy stayed on the course, working hard, keeping us informed, providing guidance and immediate response with any questions we asked. In this day and age, it is really hard to find service like this, every step of the way. As frustrated as we got, Jeremy and McCurdy stayed with us, virtually holding our hands to reach the shore. Finally, we did it and the biggest applaud goes to McCurdy Auction and Jeremy for helping us reach that milestone. Folks, this is the company to choose if you want it done."
Pamela Turner - Seller
"Auction was just the perfect thing for us. The home we sold was my late husband's and mine. We heard auction was faster and easier than listing it on the traditional market. I knew the exact day it was going to sell it. They worked very hard to get the price that I needed and I never had any trouble at all. It was the perfect way to sell a home."
Sheri Schoenebeck - Former CEO - Girl Scouts of the Golden Plains Council - Wichita, KS
""Our Girl Scout council worked with Lonn and Braden McCurdy to sell Camp Wiedemann through auction, and the experience really surpassed our expectations. We were unfamiliar with property auctions, and the McCurdy's walked us through the process, and were most gracious about accommodating our decision making processes involving staff and volunteers. It didn't take long at all for us to know we were in very good hands. The competitive bidding raised $670,000 and the auction was a success both for us and the buyer. I absolutely recommend the McCurdy's for their knowledge, expertise, integrity, and track record of success, not to mention their friendliness and outstanding customer service. And, by the way, they also like Girl Scout cookies!"
Bill and Leslie Horigan - Seller
"Our experience with the McCurdy team was totally win-win. They were honest, hardworking, and handled our sale in an expert manner. Not only were we happy with the sale but we made new friendships."
Sarah Stephens Selmon - Founder Safe Riders, Inc.
"McCurdy Auction sold my turn-key business in a timely and professional manner. They guided me through the process--from reviewing the documents to producing professional marketing materials. The outcome worked for me and I really appreciate everyone on their team."
Steven J. Martens, CPM,CCIM,SIOR - NAI Martens
"I have personally utilized the Co-Op Program. This has provided my firm the ability to offer this accelerated marketing method to our clients. The McCurdy group is professional and dedicated and I would certainly recommend them."
Bud & Sara Cortner - Keller Williams Hometown Partners Inc.
"We have done several transactions with McCurdy Auction Service and find them to be very fair and easy to work with. We have done the Co-Op Program and found it to be a great resource for our clients. We recently registered one of our investors for an auction and received a referral fee from the purchases the investor made. What a tremendous Win-Win for all. Our investor was pleased with the way the McCurdy staff took care of him and we have a client that thinks we are the best for sending him to one of their auctions.
We have done Co-ops with McCurdy on their listings and had them do auctions on some of our listings and can not say enough good about them. Our clients have been totally pleased and that is always our goal. What a great organization to work with."
Chonci Weber Lekawa - RE/MAX Realty Professionals
"Megan - Great Day for the Auction! KUDOS to You, Braden & the McCurdy Associates for you all your efforts on marketing, working so well with my sellers by taking the time to listen to everything this house had to offer & then promoting it to attract the Buyer at the Auction today!! McCurdy & RE/MAX make a GREAT TEAM. Thank You! Can't wait to Co-Op with you again!!!"
Sophia Norlin - Plaza Real Estate Inc.
"I had a great experience working with McCurdy Auction. My seller and I met with Braden McCurdy and discussed all of her options; it was not a pressure sell. After interacting with my seller, she determined that going to auction would be a positive decision. As the co-op agent, I was treated very well and my seller was thrilled that her house sold! If the situation arises, I will definitely look at auctioning as an option.!"
Mary Lynn Priest, ABR, CRS - Plaza Real Estate, Inc.
"I've worked with McCurdy Auction Service on several occasions. The last occasion was an impressive house that we had in the Orchard at Shadybrook. This property was on the market for 9 months with no offers. I took advantage of McCurdy Auction's Realtor Co-Op Program and our property was sold for $440,000 Cash in 30 days. I would recommend them to anyone."
Michelle Grant - Keller Williams Hometown Partners, Inc.
"I first used McCurdy Auction Service's Co-Op Program on a listing I had that was on the market for several months. The auction produced a $320,000 cash and as-is offer that was 95% of asking price. On a second occasion I had a home that the auction produced an offer of $174,000 which was 99% of asking price. I would recommend McCurdy Auction Service to any Realtor or Seller looking to sell a property in the least amount of time, for the most money, with the least amount of hassle."
Don Hamm - Crown III Realty
"My buyers were able to close in less than 12 hours after the auction on a cash deal. What they really enjoyed the most about the auction process is that when you win the final bid, that's the sales price. You know it's accepted right then and there. There's no waiting for the negotiation process. When the hammer drops, the hammer drops."
