Experience The Difference!

Testimonials

“Sean you did an outstanding job. The room was energized and the parents were engaged and bidding. All the parents and teachers were so impressed with you and even those who questioned our hiring of a a professional auctioneer in the first place had changed their positions after the event. You rocked the room! It was such a pleasure working with you and your team, but I have a feeling you will be back next year. Thanks so much!”

“Chris Tuttle did a magnificent job as our auctioneer. He met with us a few weeks before the auction and was genuinely interested in getting to know our school and our cause. He took the time to understand each of our live auction items.  He did a great job reading the crowd and getting maximum bids. At live auction time, Chris was ON. He had prepared note cards on each item was was ready to go! He motivated the crowd and got them bidding quickly. He had the keenness to know when to push an item and when to back off. His efforts and professional attitude created a huge success for our fundraising event! We highly recommends Chris Tuttle as an auctioneer.”
