Rod Fivecoat

Co-Owner - Auctioneer

A native Idahoan, Rod was raised in the Notus/Middleton area and graduated from Middleton High School in 1980. He grew up attending auctions and learning the business with his Dad. Having the desire to continue in the auction industry, Rod attended the Western College of Auctioneering in Billings, Montana, and graduated in 1983. Rod spent many years as a contract auctioneer selling for auction companies all over Oregon and Idaho. Because he loves the atmosphere of a live auction and with the emerging popularity of online auctions, coupled with Rod’s desire to start his own company, Rod Fivecoat Auctions, LLC was formed in 2015. It is Rod’s mission to treat customers with honesty and integrity. He will always leave you with a handshake and a smile. Rod is an award-winning auctioneer, a licensed FFL dealer, a licensed motor vehicle dealer, and he is also our sales manager. Rod loves to spend his free time with his grandsons and riding his Harley with his buddies.
