rather unique opportunity. Rob Oglevie of Grant County Bank Trust department called

attention and obtain the highest sales price in a timely manner. This sale
however presented logistical challenges and Mark debated over where to conduct
the auction and whether or not he needed to hold more than one auction. In the
end he developed a sales system that would offer the benefits of an auction
