Kervin and Karla, along 3 mischievous little boys, are the owners of Enlisted Auctions. Kervin started with the company over 10 years ago when it was owned by the founder, Ben Yoder. Through the years he grew into the Chief Operating Officer then purchased the company in late 2019.
Kervin's role in the company includes managing daily staff activities, doing consultations for new clients, and business development. His sons can frequently be found helping out in one of the galleries.
His personal 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.
Kervin placed 2nd in the 2017 - 2018 Virginia State Champion Auctioneer Contest.
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 three young daughters live in Stuarts Draft. The team always enjoys the occasional visits from the little ones.
Victor's responsibilities include 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 is primarily setting up auctions in our gallery. She also is a huge help in packing up items to be moved. She 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 is the Transportation Manager for the Enlisted team. This guy can move just about anything you need moved. He and his brother, Michael, work together on most projects. The teamwork and dedication to excellence is combination that is hard to find.
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.
Michael is a younger brother to Donovan, his direct supervisor. This duo burns more calories in a day than the rest of the team combined. This is literally where the rubber meets the road. They work extremely well as a team and get more compliments and tips from our clients than any other team members.
Michael very personable and dedicated to his work. This young man will, without question or complaint, move anything he is asked to move. It isn't uncommon for this team to return after a project completed drenched in sweat. Yet, they come back for more every day.
Michael enjoys mechanical work as well. Tinkering with small engines is a talent and hobby of his.
Angie came to us from a variety of different business experiences. Her expertise and cheerful attitude make the days seem shorter and much smoother.
Angie handles a lot of the accounting that occurs on the back-end of the 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 and her husband, Earl, live in Stuarts Draft with their two sons. Her spare time is usually occupied with her favorite past-time, making memories with her family.
Sadie is Ben’s mother and her auction experience and expertise is invaluable. She is often found packing, organizing, and cleaning when we go to a client’s home. Once the auction items are brought to one of our galleries, Sadie will be unpacking and organizing the auction to insure the items are set and ready for photographing. Sadie also 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.
