About Oberman Auction

Started in 1973 by Les Oberman when he owned an antique and furniture restoration business, his antique inventory was stagnant and sales were slow. Mr. Oberman decided to have an auction to move the old inventory out the door. The auction went so well that it became a yearly event. That’s when Oberman Auctions was born.

  • 1979: In August, the first Oberman Auction Center, a 7200 sq. ft. facility, came into existence located between Cold Spring, MN & Richmond, MN on Hwy. #23.
  • 1981: Oberman Auctions became the first auction company in Minnesota to offer computerized clerking services.
  • 1990: Steve Oberman became the owner Oberman Auctions.
  • 2003: Oberman Auctions moved to a new 9,600 sq. ft. facility located 6 miles south of St. Cloud and one block off of Hwy. #15.
  • 2008: Oberman Auctions ran their first online auction while continuing to run the standard live auctions.
