The past year was unusual for everyone — Hall and Hall Auctions included! Our auction team was busy throughout the year and worked on projects from Hawaii to Virginia. Like most auction firms around the country, we were forced to cancel or postpone several auctions in the spring due to restrictions on crowd size and other safety requirements. We decided to make lemonade out of lemons, however, and implemented a process to allow bidders to bid real time in a virtual auction setting utilizing online technology.
In September, we conducted a successful auction on a property in Prowers County, Colorado, and bidders and spectators alike appreciated the ability to participate remotely via video. Other highlights during the year included California’s 4,675± acre Rancho Latigo that sold for $21 million, the 1,600± acre Woodside Farms (Previously Wehrman Angus) in Virginia that collectively brought over $10.5 million, and the 976± acre RiverStone Ranch on the James River in Virginia that sold for just over $3 million. Currently, we are working on auction properties in Missouri, Colorado, California, and Texas. Thank you so much for everyone’s support in 2020, and we look forward to serving you in the coming year!
