Greg Christy Auctions - The Iowa Antiques Auctioneer

I’m a full service auctioneer in central Iowa. I really love my job. I get to meet so many interesting people and they have some very interesting items.

Welcome to Greg Christy Auctions! I am a full service auctioneer based in Newton, Iowa. I work throughout central Iowa. I work primarily with estate sales, antiques, pre -1970′s collectibles, real estate, machinery, guns, autos and general item sales. Our staff at Greg Christy Auctions is very knowledgeable in the wide-ranging auction field. I also act as a conduit to sell your item for you. I will buy estates, antiques and collectibles. Iowa is still one of the best places in the U.S. to find good quality investment grade antiques and collectibles and I’m looking for them all of the time. I will be having good quality antique/primitives consignment auctions on a regular basis. This is my business and I aim to be here for a while, so I offer you the seller, a professionally conducted auction for your items. I am a graduate of the World Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa and proud member of the Iowa Auctioneers Association. This allows me to stay current with all the educational resources available through these organizations and provides me access to the biggest network in the auctioneering field. In today’s environment the seller needs every advantage available to help them move their item and receive a fair or better than market value. I have the ability and resources to gain the exposure your item or real estate property needs to move on. I offer an appraisal service for folks seeking information on their valuable items or other items of your interest.

I am involved in all aspects of the business from auction planning, to set up, bid calling the auction & follow-up with the client when the auction is complete.

Most families or businesses come to me in a time of transition. I enjoy being able to help them through the process of liquidating their assets and maximizing their profits. I understand that often it is not a comfortable period for a grieving family or a business that is in need of help. Folks, we are all in this lifetime together and I think it best we treat each other accordingly. We are sharing time and space. How do you want to do it? I choose moving about in a peaceful, respectful and mutually agreeable manner. It’s my philosophy and I try my best to stick to it. For the bidder, our staff works extremely hard to provide an atmosphere that is safe and conducive to a fast paced efficient auction. We always try to look over any item that comes into one of our auctions to insure accuracy of the description and possibly, at what grade level it is. It is up to the new owner to have had prior inspection of the item and all “sells as is”, as the hammer falls. After all, it is all about the end customer, whether they be a collector or dealer. On this website you may see some very hard to find fine investment quality pieces that you wouldn’t normally find at auction, due to their rarity of the item. If you’re a picker or dealer, let’s network. If you’re a collector and are looking for something in particular, email or call me. I hope you look around my website. I enjoy finding interesting items from our past and I like to share them with others, whether they are for sale or not. Sometimes I think I should have been born a couple of generations ago, because the cultural items, art and everyday things of those eras, just capture me, but here I am in today. Besides, if I’d been born too early, I might have missed rap music and who can live without that………. right?

Feel free to contact me if I can help you with your auction needs or perhaps you have some questions.
