From a young age growing up near the small rural community of Plover, Iowa, Tom Eberle attended auctions with his family. He always enjoyed the environment and excitement of the events. As a young farmer he continued to go to auctions and purchased farm equipment for his own business. But this didn't fulfill his desire to be a part of this exciting business. In 1990, Tom made the decision to go to the World Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa and become a professional auctioneer to supplement his farming operation. Thus creating Eberle Auction Service, which quickly grew into a successful business.
Realizing an opportunity to expand this business in 1996, Tom and wife Mary purchased and renovated a building in Milford, Iowa at 2302 Okoboji Avenue (on Highway 71). Thus starting a complimentary business called The Auction House.
In late 2014 we sold The Auction House and are capitalizing on Farm Land, Farm Machinery & Complete Househould Estate Auctions.
Eberle Auction Service has performed over 900 professional auctions in northwest Iowa locations including Rolfe, West Bend, Ottosen, Algona, Gilmore City, Whittemore, Plover, Laurens, Pocahontas, Mallard, Ayrshire, Emmetsburg, Graettinger, Spencer, Milford, Spirit Lake, and an ever widening area in and around these locations. As well as assisting with government DNR and GSA auctions in Des Moines, Iowa.
