Ness Bros. open office in Marion

Posted: Friday, February 18, 2011

Real Living Ness Bros. Real Estate and Auction Company with offices in Huntington and Fort Wayne has opened a location in Marion at 1123. N. Baldwin Avenue. The new office comes along with the merger of Ness. Bros. with Sell-A-Bration GMAC Real Estate.

Ness Bros. will retain the current staff and more jobs openings are planned. Steve Ness, co-owner of Ness Bros., explained that since they are expanding out in different areas, the company needs to pick up about six more licensed agents and pick up some territory people who understand the auction arena.

The company utilizes its agents for sales and employs a separate staff to handle the paperwork involved in estate and auction sales. Ness Bros. employs eight staff people to do the transactions and this allows its agents to focus on selling, according to Ness.

Ness said Marion doesn’t have a large auction audience and we’re creating an opportunity for them to use those services. The company hopes to bring more of an auction presence to the area to expand the marketability of people’s real estate and property. Ness went in to explain, “The auction gives our clients another route to go, the terms are set up for the seller’s benefit and all the decision-makers are brought to the table at one time.”

Ness Bros. is a family owned real estate business that has been in the auction business since the late 1960s. Joe Ness established the business and currently his brother Steve and Joe’s son Kurt operate the business. Ness Bros. and 13 of its agents were recently honored by Real Living Real Estate for top performance.
