What’s the difference? Why do we need you?
There is a HUGE difference between a BENEFIT AUCTIONEER SPECIALIST® and an “auctioneer”. If you’re selling cattle, farm equipment, real estate, having an estate sale, or cars, or you’re having “storage wars”– you need an “auctioneer”.
An “auctioneer’s” job is to liquidate as many items as possible in the shortest amount of time, that’s what they’re trained to do.
A Benefit Auctioneer Specialist’s job is to use skill and finesse in getting the maximum amount of revenue from each item on your live auction list, that’s what we’re trained to do.
I am a BENEFIT AUCTIONEER SPECIALIST®/INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINER.
I won’t mince words with this – Not only do I typically raise more money than traditional auctioneers – but you and your guests will have more fun doing it.
You’ll understand me, I won’t “auction” at you, and you’ll see very real results.
I specialize in fundraising for schools – because well, I’m the father of a beautiful school-going daughter and I believe in our teachers… but don’t let that fool you – I love helping women’s causes, the arts, environmental issues, and I am a complete sucker for ANYTHING helping children.
I know what to say and when to say it – I know how hard to push and when to ease up, I know how to say things in just the right way to maximize people’s giving instincts – I approach what I do with a serious, and light-hearted but professional approach….There is a definite psychology to what I do.
THIS is my passion and my life’s calling – and I’m really, really good at it. Others may say that but I prove it through my commitment to ongoing education, earning special designations and by continuously investing in seminars and workshops and collaborations with other professionals to enhance my value and worth. Put simply: I am striving to always learn and evolve.
What do I do?
- I’m the guy that helps put 35 needed new computers in the classroom
- I’m the guy that helps you get 20 new iPads for the Special Education department
- I’m the guy that helps you get the funding for the new dialysis machine for your hospital
- I’m the guy that helps you get you the money for field trips, supplies and needed equipment
I’m no comedian- but I get people to laugh – AND – I get them to rally behind your cause…
But -most of all – I get them to give. And I can do it for you.
