Roughly 10,000 Baby Boomers turned 65 today and that daily pattern will continue until 2030, according to Pew Research Center population projections. By that time, say the projections, 18% of the nation’s population will be 65 or older.
A few days ago, Cates agent Rick Bradford and I met with a group of Realtors ® from three prominent offices in Kansas City. By the end of our time together, there were head nods all around the room in agreement that they needed to be offering their clients a frozen food option.
Years ago, when my kids were passing around the dark side of the planet (junior high), they lived in constant fear of being embarrassed by their parents. Concern about what their friends would think weighed more heavily than just about any other criteria when deciding what was acceptable. Turns out,
I was satisfied with the sale of the property considering the slow economy. I felt that you & those working with you did all that was possible to sell the property at the highest bidder. The two bedrooms was a disadvantage but at the time we built we weren’t considering selling the home. Thank you…
Jeff, the probate case for Mr. Gary Turnquist has just ended. You and your staff were just outstanding in handling all of the details of the asset sale and transfer to new owners. To remind you would be tedious, but I have to say that the estate contained four collections, watches, knives, guns…
Walt Bridge, P.R. for the Turnquist Estate
Thank you for all the time and work you did to make the recent auction of my sister’s estate a success.
We had never been exposed to a property auction before. Someone recommended we contact Cates Auction. We called and our contact was agent Rick Bradford. Rick set up an appointment to meet with …

I chose Cates because of their reputation and the encouragement of friends who have used them in the past. The Cates staff can only be described as professional, knowledgeable and service oriented. Jeff and his staff took care of everything. They covered all bases and took into consideration every …
We are grateful for Cates Auction! Living out of state, I don’t know how I could have done this in any other way that was so efficient, professional, and stress-free (even going with an absolute auction).
Living remotely, it was just the greatest relief to me that everything, and I mean everythin…
Marie Fairweather For the Estate of James Wolf
Our very first meeting with Jeff was a reassuring experience, which at that point in time was certainly needed. Jeff explained thoroughly how to proceed, gave us options and suggestions, but never did he pressure us one way or another…Our many thanks to all of you…we could not have gotten through th…

The Cates Team are always very professional. The process was very simple and straight forward. The day of the Auction, even though the weather was very rainy, there was a good turn-out. The sale went fast and we were pleasantly suprised at the final sal price.

Cates was like a “Breath of Fresh Air!” Just the answ…

Copple Trust Auction
I worked with Jeff Cates and Kim Mangum, and they were just great to work with. Very pleasant and accommodating.
They work hard to get the most dollars for your property.
The reason bidding wasn’t very competitive had more to do with the appeal (or lack thereof) of the …
Kevin Roberts - Commerce Trust Company
Selling a home can be scary. What’s the right price? Will anyone want it? Is this the right time? When you add in going through a divorce to the mix, it makes that scare factor grow exponentially. When our realtor friend suggested selling via auction, I was admittedly skeptical. I thought people o…
