How to Still Make Money with Small Estate Auctions

3:00 - 5:00 PM

Winning A Bid Calling Contest

7:00 - 8:30 PM

David’s popular seminar “How to Still Make Money with Small Estate Auctions” will be presented on Monday, August 14, 3-5pm. This will be an interactive discussion about how to make money and conduct auctions for estates that will gross under $10,000. He will discuss how he tackles this type of auction as well as the use of internet-only auctions to sell the items in place. This will be an excellent seminar whether you are a beginning auctioneer or a seasoned veteran.

Have you ever wondered, “What are the judges looking for in an auctioneer contest? What am I doing right or what am I doing wrong?” If you have these questions, come listen to David speak on his second session at 7pm on August 14, titled “Winning A Bid Calling Contest”. David has been a finalist in the International Auctioneer Championship, and he will take us through an in-depth look at what it takes to move from being a contestant to being a finalist. As David states in his description of the seminar, “It is not all about how pretty you sound.” There is no hiding the fact that David will be one of the judges for this year’s State Fair finals. So if you want to get an edge on your competitor, you won’t want to miss this session! I encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities, as I believe these sessions can help your business be more profitable and help you become a better auctioneer.
