Mark was incredible. His energy, enthusiasm, knowledge of each of the lots and the way he engaged the audience was unbelievable. We raised tens of thousands of dollars more because of Mark and I would highly recommend him.Danielle GallagherLafayette Partners in Education
Mark is one of the top auctioneers in his field, winning a California State Auctioneer’s Association Bid-Calling Championship in 2012. Mark has modified this skill to suit the fundraising environment-his chant is clear, understandable and infused with entertainment. This ensures that all the pertinent information is received by your audience and allows for a more personal connection between the auctioneer and your guests. His expertise in sales, and his knowledge of auction psychology, gives him an advantage as your auctioneer. No matter what the value of the items he is selling, be assured that there will be no extra dollars left on the table.

Mark has been our auctioneer for the last 2 years. Last year [the first year we hired Mark] we set a record, about a third larger than we’ve ever done. This year, again, we raised even double what we raised last year!Tim MolakHead of School
