PROFILE

John P. Tinsman

As a child John had a desire to become an auctioneer.  From the age of six he practiced his call by auctioning his father’s cows, while helping with the milking.  A strong  work ethic was established early, as those who know John personally can testify.  By the age of fifteen John had called his  first public auction and a real auctioneer was born!  

While conducting a successful auction business,  John ‘gives back’ to the community by volunteering his auction services.  For many years he has helped  organizations  including  the local PBS  televised auctions,  Ball Memorial Hospital Auxiliary,  The Lion’s Club,  Ball State University, Historic Farmland USA,  and when in Haiti he held a benefit auction to drill a fresh water well. 

 John has worked in the construction industry for over 35 years and has experience in demolition,  site work for large housing developments, Ball State University Arena, Wal-Mart stores,  ponds,  new home construction, etc. etc.  In the course of these activities John has either owned or operated most of the equipment out there! 

With a vast knowledge of individual equipment models, conditions and values,  John is in demand as an appraiser for various financial institutions.

John’s experience speaks for itself.
