Please provide some history as to how your company got started.
Jake Stout formed the business knowing that there was a better way to connect both buyers and sellers than the traditional live auction method. Jake teamed up with Ron Schultz to create an atmosphere for retail sales, timed online auctions, and live auctions to be brought together under one roof. It was always Jake's belief that this approach would significantly reduce customers expenses, return a higher return-on-investment, and establish a single-site for a variety of buying and selling needs. All this while still embracing the latest advancements in technology.
What are your company's core values? How are those applied in everyday operations?
It has always been JSA's commitment to deliver the highest achievable return for its customers assets in the most consumer-friendly environment possible. To do this effectively, JSA's staff must always deliver. We know that mistakes can happen, but it is important to remedy those mistakes, and make it right for the customer. JSA wants all our relationships to be long term relationships... that is our MAIN GOAL.
What makes your business stand out among others like it?
JSA is unique in that there is not one regionally or local privately owned Auction Company that provides three key buying options (LIVE AUCTION, ONLINE AUCTION, BUY IT NOW) at one location in such an advanced innovative setting.
Are there any fun facts or quirks associated with your company that you would like to share with our readers?
