David and Ann were a tremendous help when we had to clear out my dad's house after he passed away. I was worried that it would be a difficult process since I live in Minnesota and my dad lived in Iowa. David and Ann coordinated with our realtor to take inventory of my dad's farm without me having to be there physically. They arranged everything for online bidding and made it easier than I could have imagined. I came down for auction pick-up day to meet them and thank them for all their help. I can't say enough about how easy they made the process. I was also surprised by the amount of money that seemingly ordinary possessions were able to bring at auction. They had excellent communication the whole time and were very helpful in answering vehicle title questions. They were also very knowledgeable about a lot of the farming equipment that I was unfamiliar with. They run a very organized operation and are great people to work with!

David and his wife always do an exceptional job! I have referred personal property auctions to them a few times and they do a great job in getting the items in front of the most people possible with their online platform and advertising. We have also worked some real estate deals and have had very smooth transactions. Highly recommend!

Our family worked with David and Ann on valuation of our farm. They were very professional, provided accurate and timely information and had absolutely the best follow-up habits and practices. I would strongly recommend them in dealing with farmland sales in Iowa. They are incredibly knowledgeable about current trends and local situations. Their marketing recommendations are excellent. David was proactive, and anticipated any issues or concerns we had in dealing with our family farm.

Whitaker Marketing Group was much more than a business we used. David and his wife, Ann, were with us each step of the way as we made the decision to sell our farm. He walked us through the auction process and took care of all the paperwork, working closely with our family attorney of 40 years to complete the legal process. David's advertising and superior auctioneering skills allowed us to realize a great price for our ground. During the sale process, he also helped us negotiate a fair price on an acreage, which we are currently designing as our dream home. we would definitely recommend Whitaker Marketing Group for all your real estate or auction needs. We are glad to call David and Ann friends after working so closely with them! Sue and Brian Eldridge

I hired David for an auction. Him and his wife were very professional. Their auction software made the auction go very smoothly. It was very easy for the customers to register and pay for their auction items. Davids auction chant is very easy to understand and makes people laugh out loud with his one liners. I would recommend David to anyone and I will definitely be hiring him again for all my future auctions. Thanks again David for all you do!
