Most product & consulting remarks are found on their respective webpages, but I’ve listed two below so you’re assured my products are as spot-on as my auctioneering.
Not only was our 2013 auction a blast, but our Washington, D.C. public school raised $67,000 — that’s $25,000 more than last year!
The evening went off without a hitch (we heard a lot of “best auction ever!”) and there are plenty of examples where your consulting advice paid off. Here’s just one, which I think you’ll be very happy about:
The condo in Florida went for $350 in our online auction last year. This year, our auctioneer sold two weeks totaling $1,550. That’s a $1,200 gain right there. Hiring you was the best decision our committee made.

I have meant to write to you for almost two months now, to thank you both for the volunteer auctioneer training you provided and for the inaugural Profitable Auction Blueprint class which I took this winter/spring.
Green Hedges School’s 2010 Gala~Auction, held on March 12, was a big success. A huge part of that was our volunteer auctioneers, whom you had helped prepare.
Ellen and Jock were fabulous, raising 164% of fair market value for our live auction items (and exceeding the performance of the professional auctioneer used the previous year) and surpassing our goal of $15,000 for “Raise The Paddle.”
I know that the preparation you provided made them much more comfortable working the crowd and gave them the confidence they needed to tackle the evening head-on. Their performance got rave reviews.
As for me, I greatly appreciated the Blueprint classes and the Lounge information. I was a first-time auction chair, but felt much savvier and more confident about what we were doing with the knowledge your classes gave me. Many, many thanks!!
