Larry Makowski, CAI, CES, AARE, NAA
Over 30 years ago, Larry Makowski became a full time auctioneer and performed his first real estate auction in September 1974 (It was a successful sale! Unheard of in this time-frame) started Express Auctioneers.
From the beginning, Larry had high hopes and national desire for his company.
Larry likes to say, “Express Auctioneers are known for their knowledge, honesty and integrity. If we didn’t have our good name, we wouldn’t have much.
Ask a current or past Express Auction client. They’ll tell you all about us. Good luck & good bidding.”
