Tom O’Connor

O'Connor Auction Group

Tom started in the auction business with his father, Gerry O’Connor, at a very young age by preparing job sites, boxing items, and taking bids on auction days. These early years in the auction business familiarized Tom with the auction atmosphere and the O’Connor Sales and Realty Inc. auction method.

As he grew up, his focus shifted from work to sports. Throughout his time at Clintonville High School, Tom was a three sport athlete in Football, Basketball, and Track and Field. His time in sports taught him the importance of team work and hard work, while giving him a taste for success.

After graduating from Clintonville, Tom went on to study English and Education at UW-Oshkosh. He also split his time with his love of sports, continuing his career on the Track and Field team as a pole vaulter and decathlete.

After graduating with his bachelor’s degree in English Education at UW-Oshkosh, he returned to Clintonville to continue his family passion of real estate and auction sales. In January of 2014, he received his license in real estate from the Laurel Stone College of Real Estate. In February of 2014, he spent time in Mason City Iowa to get his certification in auctioneering from The World Wide College of Auctioneering. That same month he became part of the National Realtors Association.

As the newest member of the O’Connor Sales and Realty team, Tom is enthusiastic about working under his dad and brother. He is ready to fully immerse himself in both the auction and real estate businesses and is eager to learn everything he can as he continues his career.
