Lance Fullerton, a lifelong Kansas resident, grew up in the show-horse industry on a Quarter Horse operation. He regularly attended and began working at horse, farm, and livestock auctions during his youth and developed a passion for the auctioneer's chant and the auction industry. After marriage and starting a family, Lance began breeding, raising, and showing Percheron Draft horses at shows throughout the Midwest. His experience with horses and livestock, coupled with his years of work in the auction and real estate industries, provide the knowledge and skills needed to provide the highest level of service in marketing your farm, ranch, and lifestyle properties.
Lance has been married to wife Trisha for over 35 years and has three children and two grandchildren to enjoy in his spare time.
To better establish and grow their auction business, Lance and Trisha partnered with United Country in 2014 to form United Country - Great Plains Auction & Real Estate in Emporia, Kansas.
