About Us

Barrett’s Neighborhood Auction House was originally opened in 2012 by Jim Pankey, a local resident of Bloomington Illinois since 1972, as well as a graduate of Missouri School of Auctioneers. Jim operated the business for two full years before handing the business over to his son-in-law and daughter, Drew and Angela Barrett in January of 2014.

Drew Barrett has maintained an auctioneer license in Illinois since the completion of his training at Missouri Auction School in 2012. Since his graduation Drew has held over 60 auctions in the central Illinois area, including bi-weekly sales including collectibles, antiques, gently used furniture, tools, machinery, vehicles and household goods, as well as on-site sales and benefit auctions.
