Specialists in Real Estate & Bison Auctions and much more. When selecting an auction firm for your real estate auction, consider reputation, experience and success ratios.

Founded by Bert Bradeen in 1923. Bradeen Auctions has conducted a wide variety of successful personal property auctions throughout the region. If you have a desire or need to sell, any type of personal property can be converted to cash in a matter of days. Innovations utilized by our firm include the latest in fully wireless “Sold II” computerized clerking system, mobile office with public restrooms, Lampi auction pickup topper, Lectrosonic sound equipment, Bobcat loader and all tables and equipment necessary to properly conduct your auction.

Bradeen Auctions utilizes the Absolute Auction method on the majority of our real estate auctions. Selling without minimum or reserve ensures that all potential buyers will have arrangements secured, be in attendance and be prepared to bid. The competition created by the Absolute Auction method will achieve the maximum price available in a favorable time frame and under YOUR terms, not merely the first "acceptable" offer.
Multi-parcel auctions on agricultural, development and recreational property allow any number of buyers wishing to purchase individual tracts to compete against those able to purchase the entire unit. Our proven method has achieved impressive results, realizing a higher return than any conventional transaction, with most well in excess of the seller's expectations.

Real Estate auctions are held in public halls/ballroom settings that allow us to provide video of the property that is selling, comfortable seating, phone and/or internet access and a professional atmosphere. With our state-of-the-art computerized tally board, all parties can watch the auction in progress and each bidder will know exactly where they are in the bidding process. We work with our clients and customers throughout the process to ensure plenty of time for discussion without compromising the integrity and momentum of the auction in progress.

Bradeen Auctions is the only firm in South Dakota whose auctioneers are all CAI graduates and winners of the South Dakota Auctioneer's Association Bid Calling Contest.

“You never really know what your property may be worth
unless it is sold at a professionally managed Public Auction”
