KINGMAN – Mohave County has sold a .15-acre parcel in downtown Kingman that has been repurposed many times over the years.


The property in the 800 block of E. Beale Street features a 2,160 square foot building that hosted the Public Defender's office more than a decade ago, but was more recently used mostly for storage.

Two businessmen bid on the property during an auction conducted during Monday's Mohave County Board of Supervisors meeting. Rick Brannies, on behalf of Kingman Premier Properties, opened with a bid of $160,000 for the property, which was appraised at $152,000.

Bidding increased by $5,000 increments before Matt Beller's $180,000 offer bought him the building. Beller will also be required to pay for the cost of advertising and appraising the property and the expense of closing the deal.

Beller is president and CEO of 1 Call, a temporary staffing service that is currently located just around the corner. Beller said he's not certain what he will do with the property the business currently occupies, but he said its six employees will shift to the newly purchased parcel by mid-May.

Beller said parking lot improvements, exterior painting and some minor interior remodeling will occur before staff moves into the new building.
