You know you are in good hands when your auctioneer starts off with a prayer. We lost our Dad in October 2020, and my mom needed to sell her lakefront home, boat slip, storage shop, furniture, and miscellaneous items. Donnie and Teresa Stumpff and their team were amazing to work with. From our first appointment to the last, it was first class treatment. They truly care about your family and make you feel so comfortable at a difficult time. We highly recommend them for your real estate and auction
Donnie and Teresa Stumpff and family completed an estate auction for us this past weekend. We live out in the country and I was concerned about having enough of a turn out to have bidders on everything, and we had a lot of everything! They have a following and really spread the word. They set it all up, unloaded my kitchen cabinets and my junk room that was packed! There were 300 bidding numbers and probably over 400 people all the way out here! The larger items brought better than I would have expected. They worked just as hard selling all the little stuff as well. I really couldn’t believe some of the little stuff they sold! They have a great hardworking crew and they will turn your trash into cash! Roberta Arsenault
We can't thank the Stumpff's enough for all they did regarding our real estate auction. They put our minds to ease addressing all our questions and concerns. We highly recommend them for all your auction needs. We were extremely pleased with our outcome. Donnie, Teresa and Parker, thank you, thank you, thank you.

I just want you both to know how grateful I am to you and your staff for the thoughtful and efficient ways you completed the estate auction. My dad had accumulated so much, and it was exciting to watch you find buyers for it, especially given the specialized audiences interested in old Volkswagens, Schwinns and mid-century modern furniture. You adapted with good humor and grace to the many twists that complicated the sale’s logistics. Every member of your team spoke to me with kindness. I would recommend you and your team without hesitation to anyone who needs help with an auction or real estate sale.
Your professionalism, fairness, work ethic and humor made a difficult endeavor much easier to complete, and I’m very thankful to you both. Lori.
I cannot express to you how much you both helped my sister and I with our dads estate sale and all the unnecessary drama that was produced. You were both so honest, sensitive, professional and energetic with the many facets of the process. I could not be more pleased with the results of the sale, the wonderful staff of Stumpff's Auction and the kind and interesting attendees. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone who needs your services. Tracey
“Teresa, Donnie and family your advice, professionalism and sensitivity to the intense emotional times of decision making process and follow thru was superb. Witnessing such a great family unit and how beautifully you worked together to get “it” done was superb! Thank you so very much!”
We recently had the Stumpffs auction our home and personal property. They did an OUTSTANDING job for us!

Donnie, Teresa, and Parker, I want to thank you all for the incredible job you did when I needed an auction after my husband passed away. You all were so compassionate and helpful and really understood how hard it was for me to sell. I also was grateful how you never rushed me through any decision making. I felt you truly cared.
I especially appreciated you, Teresa, for always being available to answer my text messages quickly. I never had a moment of doubt, wondering what to do next.
Donnie, you and Parker are amazing at what you do, and I am so thankful that you were able to get top dollar for everything, even small things that I thought would never sell.
I was actually astounded with your time management when you came out two days before the auction and separated everything between auction stuff and keep stuff. I appreciated how you took great care to make sure my carpet was completely covered with plastic, so it did not get dirty from all the people walking through. Everything was just perfect, from help with the parking to selling everything and removing everything after it was all completed. You completely took any anxiety I had away.
I know you all didn't do this by yourselves, so I want to thank all your crew and everyone that helped out with my auction.
Please accept my sincerest gratitude to you and your staff for a job well done.

"When you’re dealing with an auction our size (1,000 plus in attendance, Silent Auction area, Live Auction area, massive checkout, etc.) you just don’t want to turn it over to anyone. And we did not settle on just anyone, we settled on Stumpff’s Realty & Auction Service. We couldn’t be more satisfied! Not only were we looking for someone to work around OUR special circumstances, we were looking for someone to understand our donors’ needs and our unique situation with our athletics auction. Donnie & Teresa listened to our needs, gave us their input and it worked! They were exciting! They played a vital role in the success of our auction. The compliments we received about Donnie and Teresa following our event were so positive and complimentary. This is DEFINITELY a win-win situation and a working relationship we hope to continue for years and years to come at Missouri State!”

“Prompt service to meet with us, discuss value of property. No pressure from auction service to list property. When listed, gave us specific explanation of what to expect before, during and after auction. Honest and dedicated to serving their clients quickly and efficiently. Thank you BOTH Donnie and Teresa.”

“Donnie and Teresa were an excellent addition to our live auction this year at the 9th Annual Friday Night TV Dinner, with their help, our auction raised more money than ever before for educational children’s programming on Ozark’s Public Television. Donnie did a great job keeping bidders engaged and involved and was very flexible and easy to work with. We were extremely pleased with the Stumpffs’ services.”
I was very impressed with Stumpffs. They were able to meet me the same day as I was down to help with my fathers estate. They worked so quickly and efficiently. Helping me auction and sell his home and all of his belongings. It really took a great burden off of me and I couldn’t be more appreciative. I strongly recommend Donnie and Teresa. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“It takes sincerity, charm and a humble confidence to be a truly talented and authentic auctioneer; something I’d never really thought about before working with Donnie Stumpff of Stumpff’s Realty & Auction Service, Inc. Donnie is engaging, quick on his feet, convincing and for lack of a better term –darn likable! While any auctioneers arrogantly “bark on a box”, Donnie is humbly aware that HE is not the star of the auction; the auction items themselves are the stars. With that simple likability Donnie is able to quickly build trust and a fun rapport among bidders, driving sales price to the top possible dollar. Like I told him at the conclusion of a recent charity fundraiser helped emcee - I’d recommend Donnie Stumpff to anyone for any type of auction.”
