Doug and his group did a great job at our estate auction. My family was extremely pleased with not only the prices paid for our equipment but the personal touch in what was a difficult time.

Doug knows how to work with both the crowd and dealers to get the very top dollar for the client. Hard work, integrity and professionalism combined with a true caring spirit are rare in this day and age and the Stovesand's have it.

Thanks for everything before, during and after the sale.

Sid Caldwell Farms

Hello, my name is Stacey Caldwell. I was married to a wonderful man by the name of Sid Caldwell for thirty-three years. We had made our home in the Blackton area for the last 30+ years. We have two beautiful daughters and had made our living by farming for all of those 30+ years.

On November 12, 2014, I lost my husband Sid to a terrible disease called AL Amyloidosis. My world seemed to stop. I had lost my best friend…. my soul mate. I could not function for the first few weeks after this horrible loss. My family and friends were there for me to make sure I didn’t just lie down and give up.

This is when reality set in as well. I had to deal with all the business of our farm. I was a partner in the farm but when you lose the most important earthly person in your life… you have to turn to the utmost important person in your life… God. I prayed and prayed for strength and guidance. He did not let me down. He had never let me down.

Over the next few weeks I had to figure out how to close the farm and sell all of the equipment, remaining grain, and what little bit of land we owned. This was like having Sid die all over again. I was drowning.... drowning in sadness, nervousness, and an unimaginable feelings of never seeing him again. The doorbell begins to ring and so did the phone. Bankers, lawyers, accountants, friends and family were needing information that was necessary in order to close the farm and get all the wheels in motion.

Before he ever knew he was sick, my husband had asked a dear family friend to please step up and help me if anything ever happened to him. He promised to do the same if anything ever happened to his dear family friend. So enter, my sweet family friends Dean and Monica.

My next step was to contact an auctioneer to handle the sale of all the farm equipment. I had no idea who to contact. I had a couple of gentlemen stop by and visit about it and leave their flyers. It just didn’t seem like they had my best interest at heart. I was so sad about it all. I guess I wanted them to not just sell Sid’s equipment…. But to also see what a wonderful guy he was. I had not felt this with the few gentlemen that had contacted me. I had planned to just pick one and get on with it. This is when another fellow entered the picture. Our landlord gave him my name and number. This gentleman was Doug Stovesand. I had never seen or talked with him. But he called my number and we began to visit over the phone.

He actually knew of my husband from past auctions Sid had attended. Even though he did not know him very well…. He could tell that Sid was a sweet soul and an honest man. Mr. Stovesand talked with me for quite a while and through the course of the conversation assured me that he didn’t want to pressure me and he had my best interest at heart. I felt like God had sent him to me. Mr. Doug Stovesand wanted to help "me"…. Not just sell my equipment. When our phone conversation ended, I was so relieved to know that I had found the one to do Sid’s auction. But I still had not told the other gentlemen who stopped by that I didn’t want them to handle the auction. I had found the person who I knew would be perfect.

I immediately called my family friends, and asked had they heard of this person from Stovesand Auctions. They both immediately breathed a sigh of relief and said, "yes!" They replied, "We wanted you to use Doug Stovesand but didn’t want to push anyone on you that you didn’t know." I replied, " This guy talked to me like a person." "He knew Sid, and wanted to help me in any way he could."

Mr. Doug Stovesand was kind and courteous to me and wanted to help me. He called many times after our conversation and just wanted to check on me. He shared his own family stories… listened to my many stories of Sid and always made me laugh. This was the man who would handle my husband’s equipment sale. He gathered all the information he needed and created flyers and made calls and handled everything! He was thorough, understanding, and knew his stuff.

The day of the auction arrived. Through our many conversations, I knew what to expect and how everything would go. He made me comfortable enough to ask him anything. On this auction day, the snow began to fall. I was horrified! He assured me we would have a crowd and they would be ready to buy…. and they were. The lines of vehicles were astonishing. People came from all over to stand in the snow and bid on my husband’s equipment.

Mr. Doug Stovesand knows how to shake up the crowd when they fall asleep or start bidding too low. He did a phenomenal job. I never regret choosing Doug Stovesand to handle the sale of our farm equipment. I had people call me after they either attended the auction or heard Stovesand Auction Company was handling the auction just to say that they were glad I did not choose the other auction companies. They even stated that they, as farmers themselves, have already told their wives and family members that if anything ever happens to them to make sure Doug Stovesand would be the one to handle their sale if it had to be done.

In closing, I just want to say that Doug Stovesand did a remarkable job…. not only with the sale of our equipment, but with the very difficult task of talking to families that are grieving and in shock about the turn their life has taken. I would recommend to any family, friend, or fellow farmer that Doug Stovesand Auction Company is the only one to consider if they ever have to go through an equipment sale. I feel like the best job was done and I now have another friend in my life as well.

Sincerely,

Stacey Caldwell

After a raging battle in my mind to retire or make one more crop, I finally decided to lease out my land after farming for 38 years. I called Doug Stovesand about a farm equipment auction. He was at my farm shop the very next day to look over my equipment and give me a price he thought it would bring at a sale. He stayed all afternoon making his appraisal and taking photographs of what he wanted to put in his brochure.

Doug explained what I should expect in an upcoming sale. I found that Doug was very friendly, courteous, and professional. We decided on a sale day and he went to work almost immediately on advertising and promoting my sale. He called many times before my sale day to inform me of an item he has sold at a sale that was similar to one I had. He told me to expect phone calls from several states, and that is exactly what happened. Sale day finally came and I was nervous hoping for a decent crowd. When the sale started, we estimated 600 people were there, needless to say I had a excellent sale thanks to Stovesand Auctions

From the first contact to the final implement sold, I was very happy with Stovesand Auctions.

When I decided to retire from farming, I did not have an auction company in mind to handle the many details of the sale of my farm equipment,. Then a good friend of mine highly recommended Stovesand Auction Company. I am delighted to say that I was very, very satisfied with the efficiency and professionalism that you and your company used to conduct my sale. In addition, you always treated me with respect and courtesy, and your friendly personality and organizational skills turned what could have been a huge headache into a pleasant experience for me. Thank you for that!

I can honestly say that I recommend Stovesand Auction Company to anyone who is considering sale.

Thank you for conducting such an outstanding farm equipment sale for me. Because of your intense advertising, we had buyers from seven states and consequently, the equipment brought more than my highest expectation!

It took me 35 years to accumulate this equipment, but only three hours to sell out....there are no second chances in this game. Your first-class service and peerless reputation brought in the quality buyers to give me top dollar for my equipment. If I had it to do over, I would choose Stovesand Auction Company every time!
