Jeffrey’s experience and expertise working as an auctioneer for non-profits was of such deep value for our organization that we netted triple what we normally do with the same type of items. With incredible charisma and energy he added thoughtful commentary to the auction performance which provided both entertainment and awareness to our audience about our mission. We will never do another auction without Jeffrey.
Jeff is hands down the best auctioneer on the planet! I have personally witnessed him turn an $8k auction into $33k for the charity! He’s personable, creative, confident, funny. Keep up the great work Jeff!
Jeff did an awesome job as an auctioneer for our event. He kept our audience engaged and entertained while helping us raise a lot more money than we ever have in our live auction. He also spoke in such a compelling way that our “adopt a family” for a week, month or three month ask far exceeded our fundraising goals and raised $30,000 in less than 5 minutes. He is a true professional, easy to work with and the best auctioneer I have seen!
Jeff is by far the BEST auctioneer/emcee we have EVER had. He is engaging, personable, skilled and helped raise our event bottom line significantly.
I can’t praise Jeff enough for what he has done to our fundraising capabilities. We’re at the point where we won’t even book an event without knowing that Jeff is available!
Jeff has taken our two biggest auctions and created much excitement, pizazz, and added significantly to our bottom line for us! Also as Kelly mentioned he is a wonderful emcee/host. Jeff has become part of our family at CSCDE.
