Our History

Miedema Auctioneering conducted their first live auction in 1984. In 1987, founders Sid Miedema Sr., Sid Miedema Jr. and Scott Miedema established Miedema Auctioneering, Inc as a corporation.

Over the past 30 years, we’ve worked diligently to earn a reputation for honesty and integrity in the auction industry. We are consistently recognized for our accurate appraisals and ability to realize high volume sales.

Our team incorporates the latest cutting-edge technology into our auction services to ensure that our clients have the best possible results for their auctioneering needs.
In 2000, we expanded our operations to include an internet bidding component in our live auctions. We are able to accommodate a wide variety of client needs given our extensive experience managing and conducting online auctions.

Over time, we developed a series of specialized companies that allow us to provide expert asset management solutions tailored to the individual client’s needs. Get to know our companies here.
