Atkins Auction Service is owned and operated by Brad and Deb Atkins. Born and raised in the Arnold, Nebraska, area, Brad may have a street address, but his heart is in the country. He worked as a farmer/rancher for many years before fully committing to the auctioneering and real estate business. He earned a real estate license in 1978 and most recently served under the guidance of Joe Nutter of Land Brokers Inc. in North Platte, Nebraska. Over time, Brad expanded his experience and capabilities to include farm, ranch and residential listings and auctions and personal property auctions that include household items, antiques, and specialty pieces such as coins and guns.
A family-run business, Brad and Deb often receive assistance for auction setup and coordination by their three children and respected friends and neighbors.
