Mr. Kolb contracted us to liquidate his brother's estate in 1999, which included personal property and a home in "The Heights."

Deer Park Independent School District
Deer Park ISD is one of the top ranking schools in the State of Texas. We have been conducting "Surplus & Salvage" auctions, at least twice a year for DPISD, since 2000.
Texas City Independent School District
In November 2009, we were selected to conduct the "Surplus & Salvage" auctions for Texas City ISD. Our first auction for TCISD, held in February 2010, was proclaimed to be an "astonishing success!" and renewal for a multi-year contract was approved by the School Board in October 2010.

"Thank you so much for the hard work (I could not have done it w/out you)! and dedication!
I hope you enjoy the cake server.. and accept it as a token of my appreciation -- you deserve it; & everytime you use it, you can remember me & the '55 Ford!

Remarks from one of the best auctioneers... Del Lemons, at his last auction in Houston, just before his retirement in 2000:
"Folks, I want to introduce you to an honest auctioneer. If you want to attend a good, honest auction, then see Jim Ford and get one of his business cards."(Thanks Del... coming from you, that had to be one of the highest praises I've ever received.)
