Here’s what others have to say about BAS Auction Professionals

For years, our auctioneer services were donated. Due to conflicting schedules surrounding our 2017 event, we were forced to find another option to avoid a disastrous live auction. Faced with a new expense and the uncertainty that came with integrating an unknown variable into the event, we were quite nervous about the effect on the bottom line. As it turned out, hiring [the auction professional] was the best fundraising expense we could have made. All of our event numbers have increased and continue to do so each year. She excels at learning your crowd and maximizing donations.

- Testimonial from Taking Bids Benefit Auctions

I met [the auction professional] 4 years ago... At the time, we had a specific vision with two goals that we were trying to achieve: make our event more sophisticated and increase our fundraising dollars 30%. Both goals were accomplished that same year with his help. I believe whole-heartedly we found that success because of [the auction professional’s] participation. In fact, I do not think we would be there yet today had we been working without him.
