We were very pleased with not only their level of service and attention to detail but also the results of our auction! We knew that when we hired them we would be getting a team that would work for us to achieve our goals of having a successful
auction and we certainly did! We highly recommend the Henslin Team!”

Betty Meyer

“This is a great auction team. They handled all the advertising, the preparation -everything. They did everything they promised. I was pleased with this auction”

Wayne Maurice, Danube-MN

“Henslin Auctions conducted our farm sale on Nov. 25, 2003. The great advertisement of our farm sale brought buyers from all over Minnesota, Iowa, and the Dakotas. We had a great sale and were very pleased with the sale of our machinery.”

Mike and Amy Jorgenson

Brian Greenslit, Franklin-MN

Stella, Springfield-MN

“Henslin Auctions did a great job with my two day auction. I was very well satisfied. The Auction was handled very professionally and the Staff was great to work with. If I were ever to have the need for another Auction, Henslin Auctions would be my choice.”

Rich Haas

“As president and owner of Continental Auctioneer Schools, located in Mankato,

MN, and Ames, IA, I want to thank you LaDon and Allen Henslin for your outstanding personal contributions to the success of Continental Auctioneer


Steve Johnson, Dassel-MN

“LaDon and his team conducted my farm equipment auction, and also sold several parcels of land for me. I was very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to hire them in the future. They have always been a real pleasure to work with.”

Jeanette Abramowski, Madison-MN

“I had the experience of losing my husband in a farm accident, and I had 2 young boys. We were carrying some debt at the time of the accident and decided that we needed to have a sale in order to satisfy the bank. LaDon and his crew provided me the kind of professional service I needed. I had many things to think about, but LaDon really made a big problem go away for me. Thanks so much LaDon.”

Randy Stockwell, Dorchester-WI

“I have recently had the opportunity to work with Henslin Auctions Inc. on a large equipment auction. To LaDon, Allen, Frank and your entire auction team, “Great Job”! It is so nice to work with genuine and caring professional people. It was truly an honor to be a small part of your auction family. I look forward to future auctions. If I can be of further assistance, please call anytime. Come see us in Wisconsin. We’ll put you to work!”

Myron & Ida Forbord, Benson-MN

“We had a beautiful day in June for our farm auction June 13 on our farm, where we had lived 61 years. We are grateful to our Auctioneers, Henslin Auctions Service who did a large farm auction and helped arrange the farm yard for the sale, washed the machinery, and completed the sale by 1:00p.m. with two active rings. They served the lunch too. They did a fine job in every detail. We recommend the Henslin Auction Service.”

Jeff Drexler, Montevideo-MN

“Several years ago, we moved to Citizens State Bank of Clara City to handle our expanding business. We had a discussion with our new banker about selling excess inventory and demonstrator models. Our banker introduced us to the Henslin Auction staff to discuss on-going business promotion auctions. Through Henslin Auctions promotional email blasts, web site and other advertising campaigns, we have experienced great results at our auctions and they have helped promote and expand our business…”

Neil Sing, Hector-MN

“In February of 2007, LaDon and Allen auctioned off my crushing equipment. At first I was concerned if they would bring in people from further than the five state area. Well, it turned out to be an international auction as the big pieces went to Vancouver, Canada and Mexico. I was VERY pleased with the outcome and the professionalism in which they handled themselves before, during, and after the auction. I would certainly recommend them.”

The Daughters of Doug Johnson, Grove City- MN

“The Henslin Auction Team was highly recommended to our family after the death of our Dad. None of us girls had ever handled anything like this before. After talking with LaDon, we knew he and his team would do a great job. His confidence and expertise was very reassuring. They walked us through everything so there were not any surprises. The auction was a huge success…”

Charles Henle, New Ulm-MN

“I would like to take this opportunity to than LaDon Henslin of Henslin Auctions, Inc. for his great help in my decision making process, for giving me great market information and insights, and offered sound honest advice, and in the process became a good friend. Thank you, LaDon”

Troy & Cathie Simenson, Blomkest-MN

“I have been attending auctions since I was a boy with my father and grandfather. My wife and I decided it was time to sell our farm after pursuing other investments. Henslin Auctions were are first and only choice to sell our land. We have used Henslins in the past to help us buy and sell farm equipment for our dairy cattle operation and we were very pleased. The land auction attracted many potential buyers and we were happy with the outcome…”

Ron Gruber, New Ulm-MN

“On October 13th, 2007, I had an auction on my electrical contracting business, as I planned to retire. I checked around for an auctioneer and decided to hire Henslin Auctions, Inc. as I felt that they could do the best for me. After I hired them to do my auction I got concerned about the advertising costs. After the auction was over, I knew I hired the BEST auctioneers, as I had bidders from more than 10 states. They did an excellent job of organizing the whole sale. I would recommend Henslin Auctions to anyone…”

Margaret Lorensen and Family

“My Family and I were very pleased with the handling and efficiency of my Land Auction in November by the Henslin Team. They did a great job of advertising for the sale. We would highly recommend them. Thank you so much, Allen and everyone else.”

Alison Schmidt, Alexandria, MN

“Henslin Auctions was a great choice for handling my auction. They helped keeping things organized, did it in a professional manner, yet were caring and understanding.

LaDon kept in touch with me throughout the whole process, which helped make things less stressful for me. LaDon, Brad, Frank & Allen were great and I would definitely recommend them for your auction needs.

They really know what they’re doing and they do it well,”

The Lloyd Braun Family

“What a great job Allen and the Henslin Team did in handling my Dad’s, Lloyd Braun’s Estate Sale. They are true professionals at what they do, and you are their most number one priority when handling the sale from the first day you meet with them, well past the final settlement. It is very important to them to see that you are satisfied. My Dad went to many, many auctions and he had a very large collection of over 500 units of cars, trucks, tractors and parts, and he had always liked the way Henslins did things and wanted them to do his auction some day, and we are very pleased that they were able to handle this for us…”

Jeff and Mary Wallenta-Lake Lillian, MN

We planned our auction for November 2019. The fall and the farming economy were both bad. We postponed our auction until March 31, 2020. It was difficult waiting around the winter, but Henslin’s were always supporting us and they had a pulse on the auction environment. Then Covid 19 came and once again Henslin’s were there with good, honest advice. Because of restrictions with Covid 19 we had to have a virtual online auction. Everything worked out very well. 
Henslin’s know their business! They are fair and honest.  Henslin’s have a very good team and they make the auction run smoothly. They deserve their good reputation.

Henslin Auctions did a great job with my two day auction. I was very well satisfied. The Auction was handled very professionally and the Staff was great to work with. If I were ever to have the need for another Auction, Henslin Auctions would be my choice.

Thanks so much,
