Then in 1986 Bear attended the Certified Auctioneers Institute at the University of Indiana where over the next several years he recieved such designations as (AARE) Accredited Auctioneer of Real Estate as well as (CES) Certified Estate Specialist. He served as president of the Tennessee Auctioneers Association in 1992-1993 along with being a member of the National Auctioneers Association. In may of 1993 he moved his offices into its current location at 210 Charles Seivers Blvd in Clinton, TN.


Jason and Natalie run a top-notch auction. I always experience the professionalism required to succeed in a business. As a proud veteran I am also proud to support two veterans who demonstrate their love for our country. I will continue to
support their auctions.

My auction experience with Stephenson Realty & Auction over the past year and through six or seven on-line auctions where I placed bids and won lots, has been great in all aspects. I deal with many on-line auction houses, and JD's is up there
with the best.
