Company Background


David Rose Auction Picture
Rose Auction was originally founded by David Rose, an entrepreneur from Toledo, Ohio.  He created a nationally known real estate auction company that would be passed down for generations.

Today, Rose Auction Group continues to be family-owned and operated.  The President, Beth Rose, has been practicing for more than 30 years.  She also has three sisters in the business including, Pamela Rose, Dawn Rose, and Karen Rose.

In recent years, the company has expanded their business to provide full-time services as a Florida auction company.  The division is based out of Naples, Florida.  With their Mid-West influence of buyers in Florida, this was a natural move of expansion.  Some of the largest numbers of travelers during the winter season come from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.

Beth Rose Real Estate and Auctions has been very successful as a leading Florida auction company throughout the entire state.  Their primary focus in Florida is luxury homes, commercial property, and golf course auctions.

The company has worked with a wide variety of sellers nationwide who were seeking an alternate to listing their property traditionally.  Many sellers were not in distressed situations, but eager to set their own terms for selling by choosing the date and time.

With passion and experience, the Beth Rose Auction team consists of specialists with extensive knowledge in every aspect of asset marketing, management and publicity.

We invite you to learn more about talented and dedicated team to better serve you.
