Auction gallery opens in Batavia

A new auction consignment gallery has opened in Batavia. Craig Lytle Auctioneer LLC has moved from Milford and opened at 675 College Drive.

“We moved here to work in a nicer facility,” said owner Craig Lytle. “We’re all excited about this new facility. We’re working on being one of the top-notch facilities in the area.”

Lytle first got into the auction business 15 year ago, and received his license four years ago. He is a certified appraiser and estate specialist. He is currently studying for advanced certifications with the National Auctioneers Association, and last year finished second in the the state bid calling championship held in Columbus.

After running a successful auction house in Milford for two and a half years, Lytle says he is ready to expand the business.
