About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Jim is a professional Benefit/Charity/Fundraising Auctioneer. He is recognized as one of the most effective and entertaining Charity Auctioneers in the country, and is an expert in Benefit Galas and Auctions. He focuses on first class Auction Fundraising for 501(c)(3) Charitable Organizations. Jim has helped raise millions of dollars for charity through auction events, charity golf tournaments, benefit fashion shows, and his unique abilities as an Emcee. He works one-on-one with a tight-knit client base that allows him to concentrate on each charity, school and organization that he helps and he proudly maintains a 95% client retention rate. While based in Southern California, he is available anywhere in the US or Canada. Jim has helped plan countless successful fundraising auctions, joined forces on numerous prestigious celebrity galas— including recently selling a dinner for 10 valued at $2,500 for a whopping $30,000…and just to top it off, he then sold it AGAIN for another $30,000! Jim is also an expert at the popular and critical Fund-a-Need concept, and has repeatedly pulled in bids of $100,000 or higher. He has also been awarded the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) Education Institute; there are less than 300 auctioneers around the world who have acquired the BAS professional designation. But wait... there's more! When the National Auctioneers Association recently decided to rewrite their entire Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation course, Jim was one of three auctioneers on the planet invited to help rewrite the course! Plus he's REAL funny, and his Mom says he's cute.

FundraiserReviewed on December 3, 2021From Las Vegas, NV

Jim - Thank you for your expertise, care and talents. Your idea to sell a $100 bill (and the $5,000 it brought in) was flat out awesome. And you sold 4 Rodeo tickets worth $1,500 for $7,500…WHAT? I'm blown away by the energy that filled the room. That's thanks to you! Our live auction set a revenue record, which will directly support our scholarship fund. You were exceptionally well prepared for OUR specific event, and guests responded with generosity because of it. We were very pleased with you from the beginning, through all the indispensable planning calls, through the event end. We WILL see you at our next event!

THANK YOU! Jim, your team was amazing. The thorough pre-planning you were willing to do with us invaluable. On the night of the event, we had several people come up to us and tell us that the auctioneer was fun, sincere, and relatable. We were all blown away by her professionalism, competence, and energy. Finally, we raised a record-breaking amount in the Paddle Raise, completely surpassing our expectations. Our goal this year was to set a tone of giving, and we could not have done it so successfully without your amazing auctioneer, the "Ringman" assistant you sent (Brandon was WONDERFUL!), and your entire team. We're already forward to working with you next year!

Dear Jim, Thank you so much for all you did for our fundraising event last night. You were professional and accommodating from the time we signed you up until the time you left the event. I received so much positive feedback about all you did. You have restored my faith in professional fundraising auctioneers. I imagine that yours is not an easy job and that at this time of the year you are busy and probably tired. Yet, despite this, you displayed energy, joy, and warmth. You did an outstanding job of representing us and our culture. Thank you seems so inadequate, but I thank you nonetheless from the bottom of my heart. Many, many thanks.
