Did you know? I'm Doug Ukrainetz daughter and 2nd child out of four kids.
Hi there, I'm Karla!
It's true! I fell in love with the auction world at a very young age.
In 2003, I graduated from Mason City, Iowa and started Karla's Auction in 2018. In January of that year my father and I joined forces and opened up our Auction house in Springside. Which was the old grocery story back in the day.
Ever since we have been doing online sales selling all types of household, antiques and so much more.
"Take care of people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to."
10% buyers fee on all auction sales to a max of $500 per item

A Note From Karla
I wouldn't be here without loyal customers like you. You could have chosen any other business, but we appreciate that you have stuck with us! I would like to thank Karla's Auction team for your hard work and being so awesome to work with. My goal in 2020 is "Take care of people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to." To be successful you must have your heart in your business and your business in your heart.
Bring on 2020 we are ready for you!
Holding a successful auction requires more than just putting up a few auction posters advertising a date and time. It involves far more publicity than that, for instance, a strong Internet presence is essential for modern day advertising. Obviously you agree, as that is where you are viewing this message right now.
Hosting a successful auction also involves many other things from the selection of the most advantageous date for holding the auction, proper publicity, adequate staff to ensure that the Auction proceeds smoothly, a fair and complete presentation of the items to be sold, and ending with a proper and correct financial accounting of the Auction.
I, and my staff, have the experience and know how to do these things for you, so that you will realize the greatest financial return for your Auction.
I am a second-generation auctioneer, having worked for my father, Doug Ukrainetz, as a clerk for 14 years. I attended the same Auction College as my Father graduated from 30 years ago, and I graduated with an average of 90%. This was the realization of one of my greatest dreams, to follow in his footsteps and become a successful auctioneer with my own business. I might add that there are very few female auctioneers, and I am very proud to be one of them.
My business will concentrate mainly on Auctions in the fields of Household, Estate, Antique, Charity and Real Estate, but I will be pleased to discuss any ideas that you as a prospective client might have. We do our job professionally, and have fun too. Everyone enjoys themselves at our auctions!
Consultations are always free, and you are not under any obligation to engage my services. Please do not hesitate to give me a call to discuss your upcoming auction.
