His distinctive touch with our customers and clients helps provide that personal connection that makes Enlisted Auctions a success. His extensive experience allows him to find unique solutions for difficult situations.

Victor Miller

Victor is an avid outdoorsman that came to Virginia by way of Wisconsin. He enjoys hunting and anything associated with it. The array of trophy mounts in his home tells a lengthy tale. We think he got them at the swap shop, but he tells a different story.

He, his wife Anna, and their four children live in Stuarts Draft. The team always enjoys the occasional visits from the little ones.

Victor's main responsibility is managing the galleries at Cold Springs. This includes set-up, photography, cataloging, previews, and pickups. As you can tell, he gets his hands dirty with almost every phase of the process. We enjoy the humor and strong work ethic he brings to the team.

Elizabeth's smile tells you just about everything you need to know. She always has a smile and we have yet to hear a complaint from her. Her ambition and fun-loving nature are a motivation to the team members lucky enough to work with her.

Elizabeth's job includes being the gallery manager at our Tinkling Spring location. She lead the packing and set up crews. She also routinely gets called upon to assist with taking photos in our gallery auctions. 

We all appreciate her never-ending efforts to become better and more efficient at her job.

Donovan Miller

Donovan is on the Transportation team for Enlisted Auctions. This guy can move just about anything you need moved and is a man amoungst boys when it comes to efficiently packing a trailer. 

Every organization needs a right-hand man and Donovan is that man.  He is the one of the youngest member of our team, but performs in an exemplary manner in all he does.  Donovan handles nearly all the transportation needs, photographs items, assists in organizing, and pretty much does what anyone doesn’t want to do. 

His willingness to do whatever is asked of him, work long hard hours, and keep coming back for more each day, have made him an invaluable member of all we do at Enlisted Auctions.

She also works very diligently in helping with the coordination of consults, customer inquiries and general office contacts. We enjoy gleaning some great ideas that she brings from her past experiences and the brilliant foresight that she has.

She takes the time to know customers on a first name basis and is always ready to help! Sadie is always quick to lend a hand in whatever capacity is needed to get the job done.  Her work ethic is a real gem in today’s marketplace.

She is responsible for training and coordination with the other set-up team members. The level of shenanigans tends to be a little higher when she's around. Although she hasn't gotten in trouble yet, we do have to keep a close eye on her.

What Our Clients Say

I am extremely pleased with Enlisted Auctions. They handled the liquidation of my Dad's estate in a very organized and professional manner. Within hours his entire household was packed, loaded and taken to one of their Galleries. The pictures taken for the online listing were of excellent quality and accurately represented the items being sold. I was very pleased with the total amount received from the sale of these items. The check was in hand within several days of the auction closing. Enlisted also sold my Dad's real estate. Extremely pleased with everyone I encountered during this process! - T. Layne
