Denise Elfelt

Denise Elfelt

Denise is co-owner of AAA Auction. She runs our online auction business at our Auction Center in Ramsey and also clerks our sales during our live auctions. She is so friendly, we think some people buy from us just to come in and visit with her.

She is a professional personal property appraiser, having completed both the National Auctioneers Association's training as a G.P.P.A., and also the Continental School of Auctioneering's certification program as a C.P.P.A. Denise is married to Tony, and when she's not working for AAA Auction, she is most likely visiting with her four grandchildren.

 

Larry Elfelt

Larry Elfelt

Larry keeps our live auctions moving fast. He's the guy who hollers "YES!" when you bid or hollers "Let's Go!" if he thinks the auctioneer too slow. We also rely on Larry to help set up auctions. Larry is married to Corinne, and when he is not working for AAA Auction or attending an auction elsewhere, you can find Larry delivering mail in Anoka or putting out fires in Andover.

Gary Duer

Gary started out just pitching in when he saw we needed a hand and then quickly became part of our regular crew. He helps with most of our estate pick-ups and he helps set up the auction too. By the way, if you ever find you need a gizmo or widget, Gary has several of them.

 

Lucy Baumann

Lucy Baumann

Lucy is a fast learner. In no time at all she has been able to clerk live auctions or work in the trailer with Denise. She is full of interesting and helpful ideas to make our auctions run smoothly.

 

Ron Jost

Ron Jost

Ron is not happy unless he is working, so after a career of working in the construction industry, he eagerly joined our team. He thinks he's 20 and he carries heavy loads like he is 30.

 

Danny Johnson

Danny Johnson

Somehow between building houses and running the Nowthen Garage Danny finds the time to take the microphone and help out when we need a second auctioneer. We would be glad to have his help even if he didn't bring his own auction topper.

 

Ethan Loney

Ethan Loney

Every auction company needs a strong workhorse and Ethan is ours. He is motivated to do a great job whether it's carrying a couple thousand pounds of ammunition out of a basement or sitting in a chair at the end of a driveway directing traffic.
