COPPELL, Texas — Coppell’s Bennett Ratliff is best known to the people of Coppell and Dallas County for his years of public service, including service on the Board of Trustees of the Coppell Independent School District and in the Texas House of Representatives. But these days, he and wife Beccy are focused on the upcoming auction of their home on Sand Point Court in Coppell.
The Ratliffs have retained Assiter Auctioneers, of Amarillo, to market their home and conduct the auction on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
“I’d seen some other successful auctions in the area recently, and that intrigued me enough to look into it further. I work every day at bidding out construction projects, so I understand the power of the open bidding process,” said Ratliff, who is moving into a smaller home in Old Town Coppell, near the replica of the old Harrison-Ratliff General Store where he now has the office for his engineering firm.
The auction for the 4,247-square-foot home will begin at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the home at 116 Sand Point Court. Auction staff will be available for viewings at 2 p.m. Nov. 6 and Nov. 13. Individuals interested in additional information may visit assiter.com or call 806-655-3900. Remote bidding during the live auction will be available by prior arrangement.
“A lot of people will be familiar with the home already, because it was on the Christmas Home Tour in 2015 and on the Coppell Garden Tour earlier this year,” said Spanky Assiter, co-owner of Assiter Auctioneers.
Assiter Auctioneers, based in Canyon, Texas, specializes in the sale of residential and commercial real estate, collector cars, machinery and other assets through live and online auctions.
