Taking Family Tradition to State & National Level………

Golden Rule - Wilson Real Estate & Auction does well at the National Auctioneer’s Association in Greensboro , North Carolina - Winning the 2010 National Auctioneers Association Award of Excellence in Auction Marketing and Promotion for best Newspaper / Magazine Advertising (two color).

This win stems off of the company’s earlier successes in 2010 at the Kentucky Auctioneers Association Convention held in Bowling Green , KY. This convention hosted some of the leading auctioneers throughout Kentucky . At the state level, Golden Rule-Wilson Real Estate & Auction, won the top award for five separate categories which included: Best website (www.GoldenRuleAuction.com), Best real estate auction ad (b & w newspaper), best personal property auction brochure (b & w), and best institutional promotion (b & w). The evening was topped off when Golden Rule-Wilson’s Principal Broker & Auctioneer Chris Wilson won the 2010 Kentucky State Bid Calling Championship.

When asked about the awards, Wilson stated: “It was unbelievable for us to win all five of these awards at the state convention. I have always wanted to win the state auctioneering championship; however, I am just as proud of our four advertising awards. It is nice to know that our hard work, detailed thought and dedication to advertising our sales have been recognized at this level. We have been truly blessed in what we do and have wonderful people at work that makes this happen.”

Wilson previously won the real estate auction advertisement award (b & w, newspaper) in 2009, and his late Uncle Curtis L. Wilson won the Auctioneering Championship in 1979. Auctioneering is a tradition for the Wilson Family in the Lake Cumberland & Green River Lake Region of Kentucky . Col. Curtis L. Wilson began the family auction business in 1965 and his nephew Chris Wilson continues to vigorously promote the auction method of marketing goods, as well as real estate in the area and has now begun cooperation with traditional brokerage companies that do not offer auction services; therefore, covering a broader region. Golden Rule-Wilson maintains offices in Columbia , KY and in Russell Springs , KY.
