Troy McElfresh started Mr Bid Auctions on January 8, 2016 after graduating from Reppert's School of Auctioneering in 2015. His first online auction generated a whopping $9.00 in sales, which was far below the cost to market, but perseverance, sweat, long days and tears have brought it to where it is today.
Troy is a member or the Indiana Auctioneers Association and a member of the Muncie - Delaware County Chamber of Commerce.
He attended Cowan School in Muncie, Indiana and graduated from Jay County High School in 1984. His father taught him to work hard, be honest and treat others with kindness. While in High School Troy worked for his father (also an entrepreneur) in an Industrial hard-chrome plating business. He also loved working as a radio announcer for WPGW in Portland, Indiana and WBAT in Marion, Indiana. After high school he joined the Indiana Army National Guard as an infantryman and even spent 3 years full-time with Hartford City and Portland Indiana.
In December of 1990, Troy graduated from the Indiana State Police Law Enforcement Academy. He worked out of the Redkey post when he started, which served Blackford, Jay, Randolph and Delaware Counties. He retired in 2016 as a Lieutenant.
In 2017, he met Lisa Wimmer. After riding by a relatives home on his motorcycle, he honked the horn. Lisa stepped out of the garage to wave and that was the beginning of a great relationship. In August 29, 2020 in the great state of Maine the two married at Ocean Pointe in the pouring down rain and she became Mrs Bid - well, okay -Mrs McElfresh.
Mr Bid is now fixed into the community and still growing. We hope that you will shop, sell, or place your bids here.
