Richard Vaughan grew up on a family cotton, peanut, cattle and timber farm. The Vaughan's had strict family business morals and they believed that in order for things to be done right, you had to put your own touch on things to make it "just right." Richard still runs the family farm and its day to day operations and still lives in the old N.C. homestead (circa 1780).

Richard W. VaughanHe became interested in auctions at an early age and purchased his first item, a brown axe, at a neighbor's auction. He still has that axe today. His father introduced him to livestock, tobacco, land and estate auctions as Richard grew up. In 1970, after finishing his agricultural studies at N.C. State University, he returned home to continue farming. During this time, he also started an export business for cotton pickers and has exported them to seven different countries. He also continued to attend auctions and broadened his knowledge of the value farm equipment, timber and property. He acquired his auctioneer's license in 1984. Over the years, many farmers, attorneys and bankers trust his opinions and appraisals and often call upon him for farm equipment, property and estate valuations.

Today, Rich and Rich Auctioneers is still thriving and growing and Richard continues to put his own touch on each and every business transaction to assure that things are done "just right."
