New office opens for Bachmann-Carow

The office that houses Bachmann Carow Real Estate Inc., Bachmann Auctioneers and East Otter Tail Insurance Agency has moved.

The new office and auction facility location is 48208 Luce St., at the corner of Highway 10 and Highway 228 between Frazee and Perham.

Work on the new building began at the end of September, according to Vince Bachmann, and the companies moved in two weeks ago.

"We've got some landscaping that has to be done," Bachmann said. "But we're doing business out of here."

Vince and his partner LuAnn Carow are brokers for the real estate company.

As for the auctioneering company, Vince and his wife Jane started doing business in 1981. They have conducted numerous auctions over the years in Minnesota and North Dakota ranging from farm, real estate, estates, commercial, business liquidations, antiques and collectibles, fundraising and specialty auctions. Vince and Jane also work with their two sons Andrew and Austin, their daughter and son-in-law Cindy and Chad, Vince's parents Clair and Verna and numerous others.

LuAnn operates the insurance company with Alisyn Keil. It offers all lines of property and casualty coverage, including farm, home, personal auto, truck, commercial, worker's compensation, inland marine and umbrella policies.

Vince Bachmann said they are staying busy at the new office, which includes a full basement, six offices and a 40 by 60-square foot extension.

"There's plenty of room to accommodate the people," Vince said. "It seems to be cracking right along here," he said.
