The Lowderman Auction Company, established in 1963, as a Sole Proprietorship and Partnership, has built a business that expands across the United States. Sound business principles are of the utmost importance as individual attention is given to each client. Lowdermans' solid reputation and experience has been built one sale at a time, and can now list over 8000 auctions in five decades. Our goal is to connect any seller with every buyer. The Lowderman family realizes that today's buyer may live four states away, not just four miles away. Lowdermans Auction Company is committed to the importance of YOUR SALE and gratefully appreciates the trust placed in choosing Lowdermans to market your property. We urge any potential client to talk to ANY former client for references.

Founder Jack Lowderman has been an instrumental promoter of the Auction Method of Marketing. Many midwesterners may remember Jack's father, Wayne Lowderman, now passed on; a reputable and successful auctioneer as well. Jack's wife Sherry's grandfather was Chet Jennings who built, owned and operated Jennings Sale Barn, which was the largest sale barn in Illinois. Jack was the first to establish an on-site auction facility in the midwest, conducting sales weekly, and hosting special Auction Information Seminars yearly in Macomb.

Honesty, Integrity, and Sincerity, combined with an energetic presentation on sale day are key elements to the success of The Lowderman Auction Company.

Acknowledged as one of the leading auction firms to market land in Illinois, and recognized on the Orion Samuelson Show, the Lowderman Auction Company utilizes the Auction Method of Marketing for the benefit of both the seller and buyer. An honest sale provides a win-win situation for seller and buyer, and in turn provides Lowderman Auction the reputation needed for booking 8000 auctions.

One of the most experienced and recognized auction firms in the midwest, The Lowderman Auction Company has grown to become a full time family business that includes: Jack and Sherry Lowderman, their three sons, Monte, Brent, and Cody Lowderman, as well as Scott Schwerer. Each play a vital role in planning, preparing, promoting and conducting each auction.

Phase I of the Lowderman Auction Facility and Indoor Sales Pavilion has been completed. This indoor facility offers 3 display rooms, handicapped accessible bathrooms and parking, level cement floor suitable for wheelchair and walker ease with no stairs, and a center sales pavilion. Situated on 35 acres this facility offers plenty of room for machinery, equipment and vehicle display, as well as generous off road parking. Specialty Auctions are hosted throughout the year, along with a monthly "Open to the World" Consignment Auction. This facility is available for qualified groups and organizations for special events and meetings. "We felt a need for a modern facility such as this." Jack Lowderman stated upon opening the facility.

In the very recent past, the Lowderman Auction Company has been commissioned by 10 different auctioneers to sell Real and Personal Property for them, acknowledging the sound business practices and principles that have built the Lowderman Auction Company.
