Col Bob Wedel
In 2020, we lost our founder Col. Bob Wedel. Since Bob graduated from Reisch Auction College in 1974, Bob’s Auction Service has been a family run business. In addition to Bob’s wife and daughters constantly involved, we welcomed Nate Pollnow to our business family twenty-five years ago. Throughout his life, Bob mentored us and continually shared his knowledge and expertise with us. Auctions are part of who we are, and always will be. We will continue with the same values our founder instilled in us. While Bob is greatly missed, we appreciate your continued support us as we carry on the legacy of our founder, husband, father, mentor and friend.
Nate began working for Bob in 1996 and quickly became a staple at Bob’s auctions. In 1999, he began working dealer car auctions, and graduated from Missouri Auction School in 2001.
Nate continues to work for several dealer car auctions. In addition, Nate and his wife Esther operate New Salem Farm in rural Columbus with their two children.
As Bob’s daughter, Nichole grew up in the auction business. She is a jack-of-all-trades, taking on the roles of clerk, cashier, and sale day manager. Nichole also runs our website and email newsletter.
Nichole is a graduate of UW Platteville with a degree in Business Administration and lives in Waunakee with her husband Brian and their three children.
Office Manager/Real Estate Agent
Bob’s older daughter, Patti also grew up in the auction business and can wear many hats. She has always been involved in some capacity, but having relocated back to the area, Patti will be joining us as a licensed real estate agent, in addition to managing day to day office operations!
Patti is a graduate of UW LaCrosse with a degree in Accounting and lives in Columbus.
