About Us

"I have been a resident of Douglas County all of my life. My wife, Carolyn and I have farmed and raised our two children in the Worden area. We've raised hogs, cattle and crops. We are very familiar with the many facets of farming, the farming community & rural auctions. But it was always auctioneering that held my primary interest even as a boy growing up on the farm. I practiced my auction chant selling the tractor, equipment, fence posts, whatever was around me while driving the tractor in the fields.

Since 1983 I've been able to do the things I love. Creating friends from customers by running an honest business with Integrity and putting the client first. Our son Mark & daughter Rebecca often help at auctions. The grandchildren are also involved, especially our granddaughter Elizabeth. The Real Estate side of Edgecomb Auctions came out of the need for us to offer our customers a full service auction package. For us, our goal is providing our customers with the best auction experience possible.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you to make the auction process an easy experience that will serve all your needs now and again in the future!”"

Best Regards,
Lester Edgecomb

"I would highly recommend Edgecomb Auctions if you plan to have an auction. They are a trustworthy business. We had a good crowd, buyers stayed late & the food was good. I was pleased w/the overall results."
