On Monday, Sept. 5, the auction and real estate firm added a 31,000 square foot warehouse and two-acre secured yard to its operation. The facility, located at 3114 Freeman St. in Chattanooga, will be the new warehouse and transportation center for the Chattanooga-based company. It will nearly triple the available warehouse space and allow the company to more easily accept large transport vehicles for shipping and receiving.

The corporate office location at 901 Cherokee Blvd. will not change.

Compass operates additional auction and real estate offices in Nashville and Lebanon, Tenn., Atlanta, Ga., and western Kentucky.

“When we started out, we were using a spare room in our office to store items for sale. To go from that to 31,000 square feet is a great feeling,” says Steven W. Holt, vice-president and head auctioneer. “Also, it’s humbling to know that the faith we have in our Lord, our employees, and our company has been rewarded with great partners, clients, and opportunities over the past three years.”

Compass Auctions & Real Estate works with a diverse selection of clients in the southeast, including large government agencies like TVA and municipalities like the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County. “Our company is becoming widely recognized for our success in the industrial and government auction segment,” said Scott Steele, marketing director. “And we will continue to expand our marketing efforts to bring new and better auctions to our consignors and buyers. It’s a new world for auctions, and Compass intends to be at the forefront of technology for how we market and conduct an auction and communicate with our clients and customers.”
