A SPECIAL THANKS to my husband Terry, my children Katie and Andy, and to the best auction team anyone could ask for! Your hard work and dedication has made each and every auction a success! Thank you!

Col. Barb Helein is a 1980 Graduate of the Mason City College of Auctioneering, Mason City, IA. Having called auctions since the age of 15, she has most definitely gained "hands on" experience learning from her father, Bob Diemel, who was one of few self taught auctioneers. Barb's mother, Katie, who has a down to earth personality and keep it simple "use common sense" attitude, has kept the family owned Willow Springs Ranch Auction Barn running for 54 yrs. and still going. "Be good to people and they'll be good to you" has only proven itself when friends and customers alike keep coming back year after year. Our commitment to trust and honesty speaks for itself.

One of Col. Barb's trademarks is her cowgirl hat and western boots, but that doesn't compare to the most important trademark quality she has. It is the clear, rapid manner of her auction chant, mixed with a little humor and a lot of smiles that makes her auctions enjoyable. The following quotes by several auction goers of all ages is what gives Col. Barb the drive and desire to further her commitment to excellence:

"We love to come, just to hear her"
"She's so fast, and so clear"
"She has excellent eye contact with her bidders"
"She runs honest auctions, that's what we like"
"Of all the auctions she has done for me the past 20yrs, I haven't had any problems"

It makes no difference what kind of auction.  Whether it's Antiques, Estates, Horses or Houses, Col. Barb's professionalism, honesty, and commitment to excellence will result in extra dollars in YOUR pocket!  Ask those who have used Col. Barb's Auction Service.
