… built a mobile bidding app.

TIM tried to find a modern solution to enable mobile bidding in his auctions, but everything he saw entailed lugging lots of equipment into the field with him. He wanted something simple yet powerful that used the smartphone already in his pocket. Something that didn't exist yet.

So he contacted ANDY, a friend of his who had decades of industry experience building software for Amazon and Rosetta Stone. Tim knew he and Andy would make an excellent team solving problems for auctioneers. BidWrangler was born.

After spending time talking to auctioneers, Tim and Andy realized what you really wanted was all the BidWrangler performance in your own app. So they delivered. They continue to listen to auctioneers, expanding on the platform that powers all of BidWrangler's products.

Founders

Tim has more than a decade of experience in commercial real estate and is also the co-owner of an auction company, Cottonwood Auctions. He has his auctioneer's license in both Virginia and West Virginia. The idea for BidWrangler was born out of a need for mobile bidding at his real estate auctions. Tim lives in Harrisonburg with his wife Krista, their four children and their Irish Wolfhound, Conan.
