"I was born to do this."

Mark Schustrin

Founder and CEO of MRK Auctions

Honestly, I have truly found my calling. I believe my purpose in life is to work with my wonderful clients and their donors to raise much needed funds for incredible causes. With a degree in Art History and a background in theater and sales, I have found my way to the world of benefit auctions. I wear my heart on my sleeve and your donors will feel that. My energetic approach mixed with my earnest sincerity lends itself to creating a safe space for donors to give. 

And it seems to work.  Time after time I break previous fundraising records and receive the most positive feedback confirming I am where I’m supposed to be – raising funds for a worthy cause like yours.

My Strategy

Being a good charity auctioneer is part strategy, part theater and part psychology. 

Much goes into the successful planning of your event, but it’s once your event is underway, that my role really becomes the crux.  The timing of my bid calling is paramount to getting everyone bidding with me to participate and stretch their capacity for a greater return.  By focusing on your mission, using all the tools available to me – humor, heart, energy, gauging the mood in the room – your guests will respond with enthusiasm and feel great about their contribution.
