Kent Anderson - Auctioneer / Executive Appraiser

Meet the founder and the face of our brands - Maple Leaf Appraisals LLC and Maple Bids LLC. 

Kent has been involved in the auction business since 1994 and has been instrumental in founding and growing two previous auction sites helping motivated independent owners generate recession-resistant income and a steady income for their families. The inspirational spark for change.

Kent is the driving force behind Maple Bids, bringing a wealth of expertise as an executive Appraiser (GPPA, MPPA, MNAA, CAGA), Auctioneer (#17491), Texas real estate professional (#740345), and GIA and AGS trained jewelry specialist.

His journey into the auction world began in 2006, when he suffered a severe stroke that left him unable to speak. Determined to overcome his speech impediment, Kent attended auction school and practiced the "Auctioneer Chant" to eliminate his stroke-induced slur. Kent certainly understands the power of the auction business! Auctioneer Magazine Article

This remarkable achievement not only restored his speech pattern but also ignited his passion for auctions. Today, Kent leads Maple Bids with unwavering dedication, ensuring the highest level of service for our customers and their auction businesses. His assistance in all areas of the auction platform is paramount to the sucess of independent business owners that create and grow legacy businesses.
