RHINELANDER - Two Rhinelander brothers look to get going with a new start - in the auction business.

Andrew Laska used to work in construction.

His brother Pat was in the marketing field.

"Pat and I were looking to develop a new niche, and we talked about it, got our real estate sales and broker's license, I got my auctioneer's license," says Andrew.

The brothers are setting up shop in the old Pine Lake Elementary School.

They're starting with consignment auctions, but hope to go further than that.

"Our focus is on real estate auctions, but we'll do traditional real estate sales, with traditional marketing methods, as well as, in this case, consignment auctions," says Pat.

Their opening consignment auction is December 15 at Pine Lake School.
