The company known today as Schneider Auctioneers LLC had its beginning in 1908 when Julius Kallmeyer and his son William Kallmeyer saw the need for auctioneers in and around the area of Hermann, MO. Kallmeyer & Son Auctioneering was born and the need for their services has grown ever since. The next member to join the business was the 3rd generation, Joy Kallmeyer, son of William. In 1969 the 4th generation, Roy Schroff (nephew of Joy Kallmeyer and grandson of William Kallmeyer) was employed. Shortly thereafter came the name Kallmeyer – Schroff Auctions. They received numerous civic honors as well as advertising excellence awards at the State & National levels.
The spring of 2003 brought about another name change, Schroff Auctions LLC, as Roy Schroff purchased the second half of the auction business from his uncle (Partner), Joy Kallmeyer as Joy semi-retired. In 2009 Lucas Schneider came to work for the Schroffs and worked for them for the next several years. In January 2012 a deal was struck for Lucas and Andrea Schneider to buy Schroff Auctions as Roy and Mary Schroff wanted to slow down some. Lucas and Andrea continued to operate under the Schroff Auctions name with the Schroffs continuing to work for them. In August of 2012 the name of the company was officially changed to Schneider Auctioneers LLC.
Schneider Auctioneers LLC currently conducts live and online auctions of real estate, estates, equipment, vehicles, antiques, collectibles, coins, jewelry, liquidations, as well as numerous charity and fundraising events across the nation.
