After each and every auction, a good auctioneer studies what went right and what went wrong in an obsessive drive to improve. What may well have turned out to be an excellent event, always has room for improvement as there are a multitude of details that only the auctioneer and to a certain extent, his/her staff, sees. As one of the busiest auctioneers in the area, I am always analyzing as the business and industry evolves. Within these entries, you will get a rare look at the inner workings of the mind of an Auctioneer, and see revealed, the reason that you want me working for you.
Florist shop in Buckeye Lake- Seller had florist shop that she was closing and had assets that she wanted moved quickly, within 10 days! She comes from an auction family, and I was blessed to have her choose me. When we surveyed the site initially, we both thought this would be about a $4,000.00 auction. We marketed it with a strict budget in mind. 2 newspaper ads, a Facebook Boost, and an Auction Zip ad. Attendance was around 60 bidders and we held a live auction event. When the dust settled, we had more than doubled expectations. We found, and got sold, two pieces of equipment that were very much niche oriented, and not expected to sell. Auctions Work!
Manufacturing facility in Frederickstown Ohio- We had an online only event in which we sold forklifts, CNC equipment, an ironworker, Welders, nuts and bolts, a box truck, and many other items. Worked with no heat or electric, and got it done, again exceeding owners expectations.
Manufacturing Facility Columbus Ohio- Another online only auction of another manufacturing facility with niche equipment, where the power of the internet propelled bidders to attain above expected results.
Veterans Memorial Columbus- Online Auction liquidated the contents of a huge convention facility approximately 5 acres under roof. Extremely challenging as were dealing with government entity.
