About Us

Putman Auctioneers was founded in 1955 by Louis and Barbara Putman. Originally called Louis F Putman Auctioneering, our name was eventually changed to Putman Auctioneers, Inc. In 1972 their son John Putman officially came on board and continued what would soon become 3 generations of Putman Auctioneers. In 2008 Kevin Putman returned from Auctioneer School and joined the team.

Putman Auctioneers has been serving the Northern California Region for over 60 years! Our business is conducted the way it has been since the beginning – with Honesty, Integrity, Attention to Detail and most importantly, Top Quality Customer Service. Our many years of experience in conducting sales for farmers, contractors, ranchers, estates, liquidations and lending institutions have given us a proven track record.

As we look ahead to the next 60 years we continue to grow and change with the times. One thing that will never change is our dedication and loyalty to our friends and customers.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
Remember, at Putman Auctioneers, Auction is ALWAYS Action!
