KIKO Company was founded in 1945 by Russell T. Kiko, Sr. Russ began in the auction business, conducting sales on the family farm with help from his wife, Coletta, and their 13 children. Seeing himself as a pioneer in the auction industry, Russ selected a covered wagon as the company logo, and now the KIKO wagon is a well-recognized brand representing auction excellence in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Today KIKO specializes in selling real estate, land, farms, commercial properties, firearms, ag equipment, livestock and high-end antiques like gold and coins. They specialize in on-site, online and simulcast auctions.
In 2018, KIKO sold over $140 million in real estate and over $20 million in personal property. The company’s websites, including the popular www.kikoauctions.com site, average 1 million pages views every month.
