Travis Augustin, Managing Broker & Auctioneer
Travis Augustin joined Ruhter Auction and Realty as an auction assistant/ring man the summer after graduating college in 1995. For the next ten years, Travis also operated a row crop and cow/calf operation. This experience in production agriculture has been extremely beneficial in meeting the needs of his ag real estate and farm equipment clients.
In 2004, Travis obtained his Real Estate Sales Associate license in Nebraska and in 2005 also became licensed in Kansas. In 2006, Travis relinquished most of his duties with the family farming operation to join Ruhter Auction & Realty full time. That same fall Travis graduated from World Wide College of Auctioneering. Since that time, Travis has been involved in hundreds of real estate and personal property auctions.
In 2014, Travis along with Ryan Samuelson, acquired Ruhter Auction & Realty from co-founders Randy and Barb Ruhter. The 20 years of working alongside Randy and Barb taught Travis what it takes to consistently deliver positive results for his clients. Travis is currently the managing broker for the company and is actively involved in the National and State Auctioneer Associations. Travis and his wife Kelly reside on an acreage northwest of Hastings with their four children Tobie, Alex, Praxton and Annika.
