This From a Satisfied Auction Chair:

Dennis is a fabulous auctioneer! I've worked with him on many events over the last 20 years during which time I had the opportunity to plan three auctions at my children's elementary school.  As chairperson, I was in charge of hiring the auctioneer and I never looked around, I knew exactly who to hire for each of my events.

Dennis brings over 30 years of experience to the table in terms of auctioneering, entertaining, emceeing events and planning festivals. You not only get an auctioneer when you hire him, you also get someone who has years of experience in planning and executing events.  He knows how to read a crowd and how to get people to spend money! He will guide you in the placement of items in your live auction as well as advise you on how to time your silent auction. He knows what he's doing.

A great auctioneer is worth every penny we pay them and Dennis is the best. Be honest with him about your attendees and he will tailor his routine to be appropriate for your event. You will not find anyone with more experience in this area.  Get great items for your live auction and he will make you a lot of money!
