LIBERTY, MO – A Community of Distinction

Liberty continues to find the perfect blend of small-town charm and city amenities. National experts agree. In July, Family Circle magazine named Liberty #3 “Best Towns for Families”. In August,  Money Magazine placed Liberty as  7th in its “Top 100 – Best Places to Live”. Downsizing seniors, families, and young couples all find Liberty to be the perfect place to live.



Our company has known Judge & Mrs. Turnage for many years. In fact our last auction for them was 26 years ago when they were building this very home! We hate to see them leaving Liberty, but their new home is ready and it’s time to sell this one. This is a first-ever opportunity to purchase a quality Westwoods home at absolute auction.  The Turnages have taken excellent care of it and on October 21st, the high bidder will be the new owner. Come and bid your price!
