Auction Masters In the News

Auction Masters is conducting the liquidation auction For Tryg Truelson of Tryg’s Restaurant at 3118 W Lake St. Minneapolis. According to the Star Tribune The 10-year-old restaurant is falling victim to the local apartment boom. The building is being demolished this spring and will be replaced by a 164-unit apartment building.

The Truelson family has been associated with this particular Lake Calhoun address for decades. First there was Porky’s drive-in (the family also owned the St. Paul branch of Porky’s, which ruled University Avenue for nearly 60 years before it closed in 2011; it was replaced by senior housing). In 1979, Nora Truelson converted Porky’s to cozy Nora’s, and its value-minded comfort food fed several generations of Minneapolitans. In 2004, Tryg Truelson – Nora’s son – demolished the restaurant and started over in a much more upscale manner. His Tryg’s opened a year later.

Auction Masters also conducted the liquidation auctions at Nora’s and Porky’s.

“I have been very pleased with the professionalism, organization, and quick response time that Auction Masters has provided for my organization. We have partnered with AM for the past 12 months on 20+ different auctions and they have been on target with minimal errors or hiccups. When issues have happened they have been quick to recover and flexible in creating a recovery strategy for both my organization and the buyers. I appreciate the partnership we have created with Frank, Jason, and the warehouse team in executing the sales of our equipment and furniture.”

“Auction Masters has been a great resource for us. They are efficient easy to work with, and are able to find buyers for items that would have otherwise been impossible for us to find on our own. “


“To Whom It May Concern: Due to recent unexpected circumstances, our company came into possession of hundreds of items of inventory that were unrelated to our current field of business. After a few short phone calls and simple emails, Auction Masters took immediate action. With amazing speed, all of the inventory was professionally photographed, categorized, detailed, and up for auction with minimal guidance from us. Their efficient marketing resulted in a quick and well organized sale. Within a couple of weeks we received the final proceeds of the auction which doubled our initial expectations. We will not hesitate to retain Auction Masters for all of our future inventory reduction needs. “

“I have worked with Greg and Sharon and their staff at Auction Masters for many years and it has always been a positive experience. Everything from selling whole restaurant equipment packages to selling the odd item at their consignment auctions. They are talented professionals that operate with integrity for both the buyer and the seller. I recommend using Auction Masters, whether buying or selling without reservation. I believe they are among the best at what they do!”
