ATTICA & LAPEER — As far as father-son teams go, Brian and Brandon Rowley make up a pretty dynamic duo. The two have individually built a name for themselves through their dedication to hard work and honesty, treating the men and women they serve like their own family. Brian has become well-known and trusted in the community through his auction company, Rowley’s Auction Service, while Brandon has developed a substantial customer base through his career in real estate with Realty Executives.

Brandon, who has been with Realty Executives for two years, began his career working mostly in foreclosures and quickly developed a taste for the industry. In 2017 alone, he did more than $4.5 million in sales and he’s showing no signs of slowing down in the immediate future. He says that Realty Executives has been the perfect fit for him, as the company has fostered a culture of friendship and camaraderie.

“We have about seven realtors at Realty Executives, and it’s more like a family than a business,” said Brandon. “My choice to work with Ray Megie at Realty Executives has been better than I could’ve ever imagined. I couldn’t have found a better office or broker to work with. I am motivated and ready to assist any buyers or sellers with their real estate needs.”

Realty Executives embraces the changes that real estate has undergone in the wake of the internet and the ways people now search for homes. The company places technology, marketing and training initiatives first so that agents and brokers can meet the needs of clients today and tomorrow.

Rowley’s Auction Service, founded by Brian in 1990, is a full-service company that offers its customers a complete liquidation of their personal property, estate or business. The company prides itself on making the entire experience smooth and stress-free, conducting both live and online auctions, and can also offer to purchase the contents of an estate or business if the client is pressed for time or space.

“The industry has definitely changed a lot, with the energy being switched from live auctions to online,” explained Brian. “We had to grow with those changes, because this is the new way of the world and doing business, and it’s been really good. We’ve gotten really good at it, and now we do about 60 percent of our business online.”

Brian and business partner, Greg also both lend their time and expertise to a number of local charities and nonprofit organizations throughout the community, including Lapeer County 4H, LACADA, Habitat for Humanity, Seven Ponds and Family Literacy Center.

“We’re here to stay,” said Brian. “We love this community, and now, with Brandon selling real estate, I really feel in my heart that we can be a huge benefit to people who are trying to liquidate an estate in the area, whether they’ve lost their parents or a relative, the two of us can fill a very important service for them.”
