In 2015, I was a member of the Board of Directors for the Burroughs Audubon Society. The organization owned a piece of rural property in Kansas, and decided to sell it to raise funds necessary to support our ongoing conservation efforts. We contracted with Robert Mayo and Mayo Auction & Realty to sell the property via an online auction.
The Board’s expected the land would sell for around $150,000. We had several meetings with Robert, and were impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. At the end of the auction, we were stunned! Because of Robert and his staff’s skill and hard work, our property sold for just under half a million dollars!
The funds raised from this auction are currently being used to preserve, promote, and expand conservation of wildlife habitat all around the Kansas City metropolitan area. Never before in its 99 year history has the Burroughs Audubon Society had the financial resources it has now, and we owe it all to Mayo Auction & Realty! -Jeff Wayman, DVM
Robert and Team,
It would be remiss of me to not pause, and express unto you and your entire team, our family's heartfelt gratitude and thanks for taking such good care of us.
When I came into your office and signed the paperwork for an absolute auction on my home, I was so very nervous about the ABSOLUTE part. You looked me in the eyes and said “ Diana, I will work hard for you” and then we shook hands. Not only did you work hard but Mary, Sara and also Georgette with the title company worked very hard for me. When I had a question you and your staff were always available to answer it. My home was listed with a real estate company for a year with no action on it at all. I decided that maybe an auction might be the answer for the selling of my home with the way the economy is and so many homes on the market. I was very pleased with your marketing of my home, the turn out for my open house and that I had many online bidders. I tell everyone who needs an auction company that they should call Mayo Auction." - Diana O’Bryan- Kansas City
"Thank you for the successful auction of my property in Lee’s Summit. Your method of conducting auctions worked for us..." - Kathleen Irwin
I just wanted to thank all of you at Mayo Auction for doing a fantastic job with selling my coins and other things for me. You are all the best at what you do and I want you to know that I really appreciate all of your hard work... - Mike Del Monte - Kansas City, Missouri
"I was very pleased with what Mayo Auction & Realty provided for me at such a stressful time. I found the Mayo Auction Team to be courteous, professional, honest, and thorough. I believe they are a “Get it done” group and made the experience painless for me. I have and will continue to use and recommend Mayo Auction & Realty to those who are in need of a class “A” team." - Josh Hill - Leawood, Kansas
"I stumbled across an image on Google while looking for a collector plate & clicked on the image which took me to your website. I was only looking for one plate, but then I saw that you were offering the complete set. I registered with Mayo Auction & placed my bid. It was simple to do & I actually made contact with members of your staff on a few occasions to ask questions in regards to shipping these items if I was lucky enough to win them. The two members of your staff that I spoke to were very friendly, helpful & professional. The items were shipped & arrived very quickly to my home address in Carson City, Nevada in excellent condition & was packed very well. I couldn’t be more pleased with your staff & the professionalism I encountered from the beginning to the end of this transaction. I just wanted to thank you for a very pleasant buying experience & for putting to an end the search for the collection of plates that I have been looking for for several years... - Matthew Hobdy - Carson City, Nevada
"I received the check yesterday. I received more then I had expected. Thanks for your help in selling the items." Jack - Overland Park, Kansas

"I was more than happy with the price that I received for my home. It actually sold for much more than similar homes in the area are selling for." - Elizabeth Lucas
"I just want to say thank you for a terrific, successful evening. As with last year, you made the event - I’ve been at a number of auctions over the years and you are, by far, the one that stands out from all the others. I really appreciate that you get out on the floor, kid with & have fun with the agents getting them to keep bidding. Also, I appreciate your knowledge of RPAC and its importance. KUDOS to you for helping to make our evening so very successful. We’ll see you next year." - Judy Miller
"Today we realized a dream that we have had for more than a year. We attended the closing for the sale of our home. The solution to selling ended up being so easy and so fast that we can’t believe we didn’t try it earlier. We spent over a year trying to sell our home through the traditional route of using a realtor and then as a “for sale by owner”. Robert Mayo did what no one else could do for us in approximately one month.
>We became frustrated with the traditional approach to selling as we spent countless hours making the house look perfect for “no show” appointments or for lookers who weren’t serious about finding a home. It’s no easy task to clean up a 3200 square foot home with 15 minutes warning when you have two small children at home.
We interviewed several auction companies and then chose Mayo Auction & Realty based on Robert Mayo’s targeted approach to marketing our property. We felt that the other companies used the same marketing approach for every property. Robert really put great thought into how to best communicate with potential buyers and how to find those buyers. The results came through on auction day when we received a non-contingent sales contract (another benefit of using the auction approach).
Robert Mayo and his staff are sincere about wanting to help people. They helped us realize our dream through their targeted marketing plan, their hard work, and their sincere and honest approach in dealing with us and all potential buyers of our property. We would highly recommend Mayo Auction & Realty for those considering selling a home and/or personal property." - Julie and Craig Johnson- Liberty, Missouri
"Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dave Kingore and I am the former General Manager of Play Central Station in Overland Park, Kansas. This letter is in reference to our experiences with Robert Mayo, the Auctioneer that handled our Liquidation Auction.
To give you some background, Play Central Station went out of business and we needed to liquidate the assets of the business. I obtained a quote from a company to buyout the entire inventory, which came in at $36,000. After further review, we felt our equipment should take more than that. We decided to pursue having an auction, as we felt we should be able to get between $75,000 and $100,000 for our equipment.
I interviewed approximately 6 auctioneers, and after reviewing their proposals selected Robert Mayo and his company. We felt that the marketing they were prepared to do would make the difference in getting the qualified buyers we needed to get a better price. We were pleasantly surprised.
When it was all said and done, the total gross for our auction came in at $152,000, well above our best hopes! Needless to say, we were thrilled with the results.
I simply cannot express how happy we were with the entire process. Robert Mayo and his staff showed themselves to be professional, reliable and courteous throughout the process. Robert was always just a phone call away whenever I needed to ask a question, and always showed he and his staff where ready to go the extra mile to make our event a success. Again, I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We feel like we solidified a relationship and didn’t just have an auction." -Dave Kingore

"On behalf of Synergy Services I would like to thank you and your team for an outstanding job done at the Mardi Gras Masquerade! We have received nothing but positive feedback on how the silent and live auction ran.
Your energy and excitement set the tone for the evening. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Thank you again for making a difference." - Lexie Applebaum
Dear Mr. Mayo:
I am writing to comment on the exceptional range of services that you have provided our non-profit organization. For the past two years, our group has valued your input from pre-function consultation to the wrap up advice that goes a long way toward improving the next year’s event. Most importantly, our results from the auction process itself have certainly proven to us that this is an investment worth making.
The recommendations that you offered before the event resulted in additional ways to raise money during the gala and brought in an additional $3500. The Champagne Sparkle and the Heads or Tails game also made the evening more fun for our guests. Our live auction items were placed in your recommended order and subsequently maintained a momentum that, again, resulted in more dollars for the organization. I had several guests comment that your team was very personable during the live auction. I heard from guests that a personal thank you was extended by your ring men after the final sale of each auction item. Finally, the troubleshooting and ideas that you shared the week after the event will change, and improve, the way we go about certain activities for next year’s fundraiser.
Thank you for the time, attention, and service that you have provided. Hearing positive comments, no complaints, from our guests makes us feel that you and your team function as an extension of our group. We feel it is very important for donors to receive a personal thank you and handshake. With your team working the live auction, they did. We look forward to working with you again.
