About us

In August 1999, Steve Z graduated from Reppert School of Auctioneering where his auctioneering career officially started. He immediately started working for the family business, participating in all aspects of the auction business, while attending college at Suny Cobleskill & Cornell University. Steve then became a licensed real estate salesperson in the year 2000. Then he founded Steven D. Zogg Real Estate on March 19, 2004 when he became an independent licensed Real Estate Broker. After working 7 years (1999 –2006) as an apprentice auctioneer with the family’s auction business, in December of 2006, Steve went out on his own and established his own business, Steven D. Zogg Real Estate Auction & Cattle Co.

Steve Z’s passion for the auction business and accelerated marketing keeps growing.

"Accelerated marketing has always been intriguing to me and because every potential sale or auction contains so much variety, I knew since I was 16 years old that marketing, auctions and auctioneering was going to fit my personality and be a major part of my life. A new challenge is presented at every sale. No estate, property or auction is ever the same, which makes it fun and interesting to be in the auction and marketing industries."

"It is my experience that people who do not like their jobs or careers and who only go to work for a pay check do find it hard to have fun at work and can hinder their production & enjoyment of life as well."

With that, it is SDZ Auction Co.'s mission to satisfy both buyers and sellers in the marketplace and HAVE FUN DOING IT! It is that simple! If you are looking for an auction service with a GOOD ATTITUDE towards the service they provide & MOTIVATION to get the job done and HAVE FUN doing it, then SDZ Auctions would like to work for you!

Auctions are for people with a plan. Time is extremely valuable and having an auction with a definite date & time of sale, can mean the difference between time wasted or time not wasted. Every situation is different, but millions of auctions are conducted every year all over the globe, because time is money and turning assets to cash for true market value is the realistic goal.

In addition, we realize that auctions are not for everyone, so for clients that are motivated to sell real estate and realistic about values with a plan to sell, we handle accelerated listings. For sellers who are looking for large values above estimated market values, we are not interested in wasting buyers time. Time is too valuable to waste.



Steven and his wife, Marisa, reside in Virgil, NY (Cortland County) with their two sons, Stevie & Barrett, and their daughter Annabelle.
