About Us

Built on Trust Since 1960!

Steffes Group, Inc. is a nationally recognized leader in the auction industry, engaged in the business of marketing farm, construction, transportation equipment, and real estate at public auction for over 60 years.

The company was founded in 1960 by Robert Steffes who primarily sold farm equipment and livestock. In 1984, the business incorporated and moved all business operations to Fargo, North Dakota. From that time forward, the company has experienced significant growth and an expansion of its service offerings. We now have locations in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Colorado, and have representatives serving all of the Midwest and Rocky Mountain Region of the United States.

We have had the opportunity to not only expand our geographic footprint but also our list of service offerings that are aimed to be complementary to one another. We, through our contributing divisions and team members, offer a variety of services to our clients.

The large majority of our growth and success can be attributed to our long-standing reputation as consistent performers who are genuinely true to our core values. These core values are of the utmost importance to the team at Steffes Group because a company is only as good as its people. Accordingly, we seek to assemble outstanding people who do outstanding things so each can work together to do what they do best. In all endeavors, big and small, we will always be committed to providing our clients and customers outstanding service, professionalism, and most importantly honesty and integrity.

Looking forward, we seek to continue to grow and prosper as a team of professionals. In doing so, we seek to be known as one of the nation’s largest agriculture, construction, and real estate auction companies and be considered the best of the best.
