Rather than making a phone call to a Realtor, then an Auctioneer, then a Personal Property Appraiser and

Charity Auctions Benefit from using a Professional Auctioneer:

  • A growing number of charitable organizations are using an annual auction as their top fundraising event, and that raises the question of who will act as their Auctioneer.
  • The trend has steadily turned away from the old practice of using a local celebrity (such as the TV news anchor or weatherman) because groups are realizing that a Professional Auctioneer can generate more revenue and a better organized and entertaining event. 
  • A career Auctioneer is skilled with reading the audience, utilizing many tactics to stimulate bidding.  A Professional Auctioneer also understands the proper order of sale and grouping of appropriate items for best revenue. 
  • Also, a non-professional Auctioneer likely does not understand auction laws that govern bidding and purchases, and could put the charitable organization at legal risk if a disagreement occurs between bidders. 
  • Charity auctions are great fun to attend, and they help worthy causes.  But these organizations and events are not as simple as they were many years ago, with computerized systems and electronic gadgetry now being a mainstay of current auctions. 
  • A Professional Auctioneer advises groups on preparation of the auction, marketing, timing, set-up of items, length and conduct of the auction and many more details that make a great difference in the bottom line revenue and the smooth running of the event.
