About Rawlings Auction, Appraisal & Realty, LLC

Rawlings Auction, Appraisal & Realty, LLC has been in the business of selling for more than 15 years.  We are a full-service AuctionAppraisal & Real Estate firm.

Rawlings Auction Service was the beginning of a family adventure in the early ’90s as a fun side job of the late Robert Rawlings whose primary field of expertise was training racehorses at the Charlestown Races and Slots.  Bob began this venture into the auction world with his son Steve working alongside him.   As time passed and Bob became quite ill and subsequently passed, the side auction business was left with no leader at the helm.   After much thought and consideration, Steve and his wife Patti decided to dive in full time from there, continue in his path and build the company well beyond what Bob ever could have imagined by adding appraisals and real estate as part of the services to be provided and becoming a full-time operation.   The business name was changed to its current name, we fully automated all processes and as we grew from the ground up started adding staff.

The business grew quickly.  Today, we hold very successful auctions; online, onsite, or at remote locations. Real Estate Auctions have become one of our most sought after services.  We sell millions of dollars in real estate annually.   Our sellers are not only homeowners but lenders, investors, commercial and industrial property owners, and everyone in between. 

The key to our success is hard work, dedication, honesty, and integrity.  We demand all of the above.  With that dedication, we are able to produce the highest prices for our sellers. 

We absolutely love what we do even though often it occurs during difficult and emotional circumstances for our sellers. 


Steve Rawlings has been a Licensed Auctioneer for more than 15 years.  He serves Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Virginia.  Steve has also at times obtained special credentials in order to sell in other states.  Steve is also a Certified Personal Property Appraiser.  These appraisals can be used in any legal proceeding, often for bankruptcy proceedings, business liquidation or estate liquidation.  Steve is also a Licensed Real Estate Agent.

What our customers have to say.

Thank you all so very much for helping to close its very big chapter of my life. There truly are not enough ways to express my gratitude and thanks. I knew you were the right team to bring in to make this happen. Working with you has really been a pleasure. With your guidance and expertise, you managed to walk us through each step of the process, allowing us to feel comfortable making truly important decisions. It was not an easy task and you handled every detail with professionalism, integrity and positive vibes under all the circumstances that were presented to us. And we had a lot of circumstances! For that, I am most appreciative. I am forever grateful that I was fortunate enough to have chosen such competent, kind and knowledgeable professionals to help me in my time of need.

I was very satisfied with all services performed by Mr. Rawlings and his people. Everything was done in accordance with the contract and in a professional manner. When I asked Mr. Rawlings to sell the house, he acted promptly, began advertisement and held an auction and 30 days. He worked hard to help put a deal together and the sale price ended up very close to my expectations. This was a big job and my wife and I would not have been able to do it without Mr. Rawlings’s help.
