Reppert Auction School headed to Ind.


INDIANAPOLIS —In its 90th year of operation, the Reppert Auction School is relocating from Auburn, Ind., to Indianapolis under new ownership.

New owners

Reppert is now co-owned and operated by Melissa Davis, CAI, AARE, BAS. Davis is a third-generation auctioneer and currently serves as vice president of the Indiana Auctioneers Association.

Davis purchased the business with her father, Jack Christy, MGPPA, CAI, CES, BAS, owner of Christy’s of Indiana, Inc., one of the largest auction companies in the state.


Reppert Auction School was previously owned by Dennis Kruse and his sons. The Kruse family elevated Reppert’s status, offering the highest-quality auctioneer education available by developing the most extensive auction school curriculum in history.

Reppert Auction School has been featured on the Today Show, and students have traveled from as far as South Africa to attend.

“This acquisition is an honor,” said Christy. “We are humbled by the opportunity to own a piece of Indiana history.”

“We are very excited about this opportunity,” added Davis. “By relocating to Indianapolis, we will reach even more students while continuing to offer a hands-on opportunity to learn the skills needed to be successful in today’s increasingly complex auction business.”

Next class

The next auctioneer course will be held July 25 through Aug. 6 at the Christy’s of Indiana location on the south side of Indianapolis.
