Steve started West Central Sales and Auction located in Dexter, Iowa in 1999. Along with owning his own auction company he commonly travels the United States working as a contract auctioneer for several other auction companies.   This gave him experience in all aspects of auctions, from set up to settlement and in all types of sales including aviation, charity, real estate, toys, coins and collectibles.  Growing up in rural Iowa instilled a lifelong passion for agriculture. This guided his specialty of farm machinery and heavy equipment, as well as farmland auctions. Steve attended Continental Auction School and has had the honor to serve as an instructor at the school for the past several years. Steve has a “do whatever it takes” attitude and will ensure that everyone has an enjoyable auction experience. Steve will often crack jokes on the microphone to keep the crowd light-hearted!
