When Colonel Redbeard was a little whipper snapper, he would attend auctions with his father. He loved to hear that “chant” that the Auctioneer made, tapping his toe and it would send Redbeard into a day dream about being up there someday himself.
Col. Stan Perkins, first Auctioneer in the Michigan Hall of Fame said….”You can’t be a great Auctioneer with a pint in your pocket”. The Col. Redbeard follows that principle of temperance today along with principles of honesty, integrity, perseverance, and faith. Brent’s love of being an Auctioneer and a “Brother of the Hammer”, drives him to be an outstanding Auctioneer.
The title “Colonel” is give to auctioneers’ from the days of the American Civil War. Colonel’s auctioned off war plunder to the highest bidders.
Brent LaPonsey owned Good Ol’ Redbeard’s General store, he has now stepped away in order to follow his dream. His dream grew into reality, which caused one door to close, the store, and one door to open, Redbeard’s Auction Co. He wants to be among the Greats, and the Best of the Best!
