Real Estate Auctions Since 1942
For many years, agents have enjoyed partnering with Cates to earn real estate auction commissions. Whether you have a seller who could benefit from an auction sale, are representing buyers who are interested in an auction property, or are considering a career change of your own, let's talk!
Below are brief explanations of four of our most popular partnership opportunities. We're always happy to talk with you, answer questions, and help you determine if auction is an appropriate strategy for a particular client or property.
Refer a SellerSelect the referral option if you do not wish to be actively involved in the auction process. When the seller you refer completes a successful auction, we'll simply pay you a portion of the buyer's premium commission at closing. It's easy!

Convert a Listing
If you want to maintain the listing and be involved in the auction process, you and your client can both sign an "Auction Addendum" to your listing agreement that will authorize Cates to conduct the auction marketing and sale. You will receive whatever commission you and your seller negotiated and the auction commission will be paid by the buyer.Click here to learn more about the benefits sellers enjoy with a real estate auction
