Influences & Inspiration
We have been influenced by many great auctioneers in the business. Letitia Fry, is an amazing, wonderful charity auctioneer; and we shared our BAS classes together. She regularly raises millions for her clients and is a very classy act to experience. We also love Paul B. of the World Wide School of Auctioneering. Paul is a mentor, Father figure and a friend. He has also raised millions for worthy charities and booming corporations. Ed Gold from CA is one of the nations premiere charity, wine, and golf auctioneers in the world. He too raises millions for charity and taught me about how to maximize returns and create additional revenue streams. Thanks to those and many more teachers.
