Bill & Vonda Downs – Founders
In 1979, Bill Downs attended Western School of Auctioneering in Billings, MT. Soon after this, Bill and his wife Vonda founded Bill Downs Auction Service in 1979 in Nampa, Idaho. A couple of successful years later, Bill found himself the president of the Idaho Auctioneers Association and on the board of the National Auctioneers Association. Bill and Vonda have helped raise money for Christian Schools through benefit auctions, and continue to do so even after retiring. The family-based company has enjoyed helping thousands of families through the auction business. In 2001, the family business was sold to Larry and Debi Downs, who continue to grow and serve the northwest auction industry.
