Testimonials

We are unable to express what your friendship and dedication has meant to us both. You selling four of our properties in under thirty days, is nothing less than a miracle. As I stated before we were blessed to have God and Nancy Gratz on our side!!

-Jimmy & Jane Downs

Logan was patient with me through a very long search for a new home in a small area. He was very flexible and accommodating with timings and availability. His excellent service and professionalism was sincere and helpful from beginning to end. He is knowledgeable about the area, informed on market pricing and did a fantastic job guiding me through a successful transaction. I recommend Logan to everyone.

-Laura Kliethermes

Bill and Nancy, thank you so much for all of your help with the sale and close of my Mom’s home.  You were both so wonderful and made an unpleasant task so much easier for me.  With the added complication of having my brother living abroad, you were so great in finding solutions to unique problems.  Since Mom’s passing was unexpected, the task of emptying and selling her home was overwhelming.  But you made me comfortable with the process and provided such a valuable service.  I will forever be grateful to you both.

–Lisa Parrish Mizell

I wanted to share a little of my relationship with the Gratz family. When I moved to JC 28 years ago, I started attending Bill’s auctions. Since that time I have gotten to know his family. (A couple of years ago I started working part time as a clerk with their auction service. As my husband says, I work the auctions to feed my habit!). Bill and Nancy’s grandson, Logan, was a student in my building when I first transferred out to Blair Oaks, and he impressed me at that time with his work ethic and enthusiasm. When I decided to remodel this home and put it on the market, I asked Logan Gratz to be my listing agent. I want to support the next generation of the Gratz family. Those of you who know this family know how much volunteer work they have done for this community, for so many charitable organizations. Good people.

-Julia Gampher

Thank you so much for the success of the gun auction – we had the “SUPER BOWL” of sales. Your team exceeded our expectations in all aspects. Never have we seen such professionalism and expertise. Bill, you made us feel like family from start to finish – supported us and took care of all the details, and we can’t thank you enough. You will be #1 with us when we need you again. Count on it!!!!

-Ray and Linda

Recently I had the opportunity to work with Logan Gratz. Not only did my home sell in less than 4 days, I was extremely pleased with Logan’s professionalism, his expertise, and his dedication to staying on top of all the paperwork that is involved with selling real estate. I would definitely recommend Logan to anyone who is planning to buy or sell real estate. Logan is a great example of a hard working Christian individual who will get the job done. Thanks again to Gratz Reality and especially to Logan for assisting me in selling my home.

-Doris Adams

Immaculate Conception School depends on the generosity of our parishioners for its vitality. The Home & School Fall Fling is our biggest fundraiser for the school, and the funds raised are an important part to ensure our school’s success. The monies that are raised from this event are spent throughout Immaculate Conception School for desks, library books, lab equipment, classroom needs, school security, playground equipment, and computer equipment. We have worked with Bill Gratz for many years in helping us with the live auction piece of this event. Without his enthusiasm, ability to pull people into bidding, and overall commitment to education, I truly believe that we would not be able to raise as much money alone. He is a blessing to us and we look forward to many more years of his talents helping us to \”raise the bid\” for I.C. School!! The students, faculty, and families of I.C. Thank You!!

Assistant Principal, Immaculate Conception School

I would like to say thank you to Nancy and the rest of the group. I recently put a large lot of Moonstone in an auction…and you took good care of me…this was via my mom who lives in Jefferson City… I appreciate all of your assistance with this matter.

-Shelly R.

I have known Bill and Nancy for more than 15 years—ever since I stayed with them as a Rotary exchange student. They are pleasant, honest, effective and hardworking people–and sometimes I wonder when they get time to sleep at all! If I still lived in Missouri, I would not even consider anybody else but Gratz Real Estate & Auctioneering for all of my real estate and auctioneering needs.

Working with Gratz Real Estate and Auction Service was an enjoyable experience.  Bill is personable, professional and knowledgeable about his craft.  He made selling a farm, a house and having two auctions look so easy.  There was not a problem that he couldn’t solve.  We would recommend him to anyone.  He will get the job done!

–Logan and Sue Ann Schellman

I want to thank you and your staff for all of the hard work all of you did today.  You were awesome!  The accolades I heard about your auctions were absolutely correct.  I am glad I trusted my items in your care and auction.  Hope you are finally getting some sleep.  Thank you.

After the death of our mom, my siblings and I were left with the disposal of most of her property. We turned to Bill Gratz for help in deciding how to do this. We called him and he visited with us promptly and at our convenience as several of us were in town at the time. He listened to us and offered options and helped us decide on an auction plan. His efficiency and knowledge made the entire process from advertising through sale and closing exceptional! We are very pleased with the results which Bill coordinated and executed . We highly commend Bill Gratz and his team for all their time and efforts during this difficult process. my family and I are very grateful to Bill and recommend him for all your auctioneering needs.

My name is Nicki Luebbert, I have known Bill Gratz for over 30 years. He sold me and my husband our first home.  More recently he sold another home for us.  Bill, John and Nancy were there for us every step of the way emotionally as well as using their experience in the field to guarantee the sale….  I felt that I was dealing with friends or family as they cared for me and looked out for our best interest.  I can see any one of them anywhere and they will call me by name and ask how things are going. They remember their clients, they don’t forget them when the sale is completed.  Gratz Real Estate is a realtor that is honest and hardworking for their clients.  They look out for your best interest  and you will have a friend for a lifetime.  I would recommend them to anyone who is wanting to sell or buy a home or for that matter have an auction.

Nicki Luebbert

The Gratz Team exceeded our expectations!  With their marketing tools and networking and hard work our home sold in 90 Days.  They assisted in every process making every aspect of our home selling streamlined and simple.  It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with this amazing team.  We have and will continue to recommend this amazing sales team to friends and family.

-Shelly R.

Thank you! My first experience selling anything by your auctioneering service was very positive and beyond expectations.  Although I realized late that the auction was being held on a preferred Saturday, your office kindly accommodated my request to include my items.  I missed inclusion in the sale bill and felt that you did well with the crowd at hand since it had no prior advertising.  Though there was a slight chance of showers for pickup of my furniture, I totally expected a bare bones pickup truck with everything tossed inside.  At the destination, I expected the table top to be leaned against the wall with pieces strewn about.  To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement!  I was shocked that you would show up in person with your covered trailer and an aide who padded the pieces you loaded and treated everything with respect as if from the show room.  At the hall, it was set up to look like a dining set.  Again, thank you!

–B.J. Schubert

A small auction — a huge success!  A perfect day for an auction, no hot sun instead a cool breeze blowing which everyone enjoyed.  The crowd seemed to have a good time.  All the items were sold at very good prices.  Bill Gratz kept the auction moving with his good attitude toward the people and they appreciated it.  The rain even cooperated, coming down four hours after the auction was finished, perfect timing!  The event was well-advertised with eye-catching posters and newspaper ads.  Everything went smoothly with the experience showing.  Want to have an auction?  Call Gratz Auctioneers!
