“We decided that an auction was the best way to sell our family farm in Gibson County Indiana. After receiving several shiny and slick proposals from big national companies we were still looking for the right one..then someone told us we should talk to a guy named Trent Sohn. We did and it was easily decided that he was the one we wanted to do business with. The Sohn team did an incredible job with all aspects of the auction. It was refreshing to have the opportunity to work with a team of professionals that showed integrity, genuine concern, and was capable of solving some pretty difficult and complex problems. It certainly gave us a sense of security knowing they were working for us. the pre-auction preparation was very impressive, the signs, newspaper ads, flyer, online advertising and open houses were all well done and perfectly timed. The auction itself was one of the most exciting events any of us has ever been a part of. It was well organized, had an excellent turnout with many qualified bidders. We will never forget that experience and are forever grateful for the wonderful outcome of the auction. Trent and his staff were so friendly and helpful to all the bidders. I’m sure everyone attending was impressed. There was a lot to do after the auction concluded and the Sohn team took care of every detail until everything was completed. We are so thankful that we called Trent. We would recommend Sohn & Associates without hesitation to anyone thinking about having an auction.”

“As co-trustees of our mother’s trust, we wanted the “best in the business” to represent the four siblings in selling our family farm. Understandably, this was a difficult and emotional time for us. After meeting with you and describing our needs and concerns, we decided to utilize Sohn & Associates for an estate auction. We were not disappointed. We very much appreciated your patience, knowledge, and guidance. You coached us through the entire process in a caring and respectful manner. Every step was handled very professionally, from the attractive and informative sales brochure, to the entire team at the auction. We could not have asked for a better outcome. A big thank you to all involved!”

“It was a very difficult decision for us to sell Mom’s farmland after it has bee in our family for over 130 years. However, we believe we made the correct choice in selecting Sohn and Associates to auction this property. Your professional, efficient, and courteous staff achieved what we believe was a premium figure for the farm and we will recommend your firm to anyone who will need your services in the future.”
–Bernette Locklar and Bob Wilderman
“Sohn Auction went above and beyond our expectations. We recently sold our two unit duplex well over original list price. My husband and I could not be happier with the end result. Trent and his father were extremely professional and are wonderful at what they do. Sheila has worked diligently on preparing both the buyer and sellers towards a speedy closing. Thank you all for what you have done for us!”
“Just a note to let you know how much Jan and I enjoyed our three day venture at this past weekend auction. I enjoyed our personal visit as well as seeing a lot of old friends. Most importantly was how wonderful your staff was. They were always helpful with requests, loading and just generally very pleasant people. It was such a pleasure to deal with them.”

“I am so impressed with the wonderful job Sohn & Associates did in selling my 300 acres of farm land in Vanderburgh County. Without question, the entire matter was handled with the utmost professionalism in every detail.”
“We go to a LOT of auctions in a month, sometimes three a week. Anyway, your place is the best to attend. We like the building, the food, but most of all the people. You are all so friendly and welcoming to us when we walk in–like you are genuinely glad to see us. That makes us feel special and you all deserve a big THANK YOU for going above and beyond your jobs.”
“You and your associates have been of invaluable assistance in our tasks of closing the estates of our recently deceased relatives. Because of the professional approach, skill, dedication and commitment to quality and fairness by all at Sohn, the emotional duress regarding the disposition of our loved ones’ personal possessions and the property was substantially decreased. For your extraordinary service, my wife and I thank you.”

“I caught wind of the west side property auction and was interested in bidding on some of the land. Being out of state, it was extremely difficult to get resources to investigate the site. Your team provided me with detailed printouts and maps and promptly answered any questions I had. Trent even met me on a Saturday when I flew into town to walk around the property.”
–Joe and Jan Engler
“Due to the wonderful turnout of Annalee’s church friends, work friends, relatives, and the advertising campaigns, there were over 400 bidders treading through snow and mud to compete for the land, house, farm equipment and personal property. Your idea to erect a tent and bus the people to the farm resulted in a great sale!”
–Bob Talbott and Darryl Talbott
“On behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Evansville, I wanted to thank you for donating your time and auction talent for the “A Night in Paradise” event which was held on June 21st at the Edgewater Grille. Obviously, with your expertise, we had a very successful fund raiser.”
–Ron Ryan, Executive Director, Boys and Girls Club of Evansville
“We just wanted to thank you and your crew for everything you did. It’s a hard thing to have to sell a loved one’s belongings, but with the help of all of you it was much easier and we made it through. It was greatly appreciated.”

I wanted to take a few minutes and write you a note about my father’s estate auction held in Chrisney, Indiana on June 22, 2013.
My family and I want to thank you and your competent staff in handling this sale on our behalf. The courtesies you extended from the time we signed the agreement through the sale date were exceptional.
The advertising and the pre-sale work certainly brought out a huge number of bidders. I estimated there were at least 1,500 people at the sale.
I sincerely believed that you were able to obtain maximum dollars for the items sold.
I will certainly recommend you to my clients in the future for their estate sales and auctions.
Again, thanks for the great service.
–Eric K. Ayer
We have worked with Trent Sohn on two separate real estate properties in the last two years. Each time he has been exceptional in informing us what to expect and in dealing with all the details in a professional manner. Things move quickly when he is involved and he kept us up to date on his progress. We live out of state and he was quick to respond to our questions and kept us informed. I had contacted him the second time to ask for a referral to someone in southern IL and was delighted to learn that he was licensed there as well as IN. In no time our auction was scheduled and arranged. We appreciated his calling us prior to the auction event so that we could listen to the progress via phone. He does a great job and we would highly recommend him to anyone needing to sell a piece of property. We thank him for a job well done!
