Why Hire an NAA Professional Auctioneer?

 

My father grew up during the Great Depression in South Carolina, a time when just getting enough to eat everyday was a challenge. For folks raised in small towns, the struggle was intense. The lessons learned for people like my father shaped their futures and taught them how to not only make the most of everyday, but to rise above the challenges, make goals, plan, educate themselves and succeed.

 

Our experiences inform who we are; make us what we are. Tobacco auctions were prevalent throughout the South and my father was mesmerized by the auctioneer’s chant. He perfected it. As children growing up in our home, rather than hearing humming or singing in the shower or while cooking, something Daddy adored, the familiar buzz of the auction chant filled our home. My friends were fascinated by this amazing talent my father had.

 

As our family grew, Daddy decided in the late 1970’s to close his successful construction company and follow his heart and open an auction business. He had attended auction school at Ft. Smith, Arkansas, then went to the Missouri Auction School. With that same drive and ambition he had as a child, Daddy wanted to be the best, the cream of the crop, so he enrolled in the National Auctioneers Association’s most prestigious educational program to earn the designation CAI. Certified Auctioneers Institute is a three-year program located at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Intensive courses of study regarding all things auction are taught to and shared with auctioneers. Less than 900 auctioneers world-wide currently hold the CAI designation. I am proud to be obtaining the CAI designation to offer our clients and buyers the most professional auction experience in today’s rapidly evolving auction industry.

 

Course work to earn the CAI designation encompasses the following:

  • Marketing and advertising
  • Business ethics
  • Understanding legal, financial and accounting principles needed to run an auction firm
  • Using technology to enhance your business
  • Promotional Strategies
  • Learning effective methods of selling real estate and personal property at auction
  • Negotiating Skills
  • Business Planning
  • Valuing Assets

Our business was founded on the principles of the National Auctioneers Association. The National Auctioneers Association exists to provide critical resources to auction professionals that will enhance their skills and successes. So, back to the beginning. Why hire a professional auctioneer? Sellers have one good shot at achieving their goals, which can run from simply liquidating assets to cash, settling an estate, retiring and closing a business, or finding the largest qualified pool of bidders to maximum their results. Why take a chance on placing your confidence in any company or individual that isn’t serious enough about the auction business to attain the highest educational levels, training and experience to meet the needs of sellers? From here forward, always choose a member of the National Auctioneers Association, and individual who is dedicated and committed, and you can rest easily knowing that a professional has your back. #NAAPro

After my husband passed suddenly, I was unsure how to sell a rather large house, his significant collections and many valuable household items. A friend put me in touch with Gina Boyleston of Boyleston Realty and Auctions.com. Gina laid out a plan to sell our things in stages, locate a smaller property and prepare my existing home for sale. She, her husband Daryl and crew guided me through several months of activity until all my goals were met. My house sold in five days after closing on my new patio home. Without Gina and her vast knowledge of buying and selling, I would have been totally overwhelmed. She is the ultimate professional business woman and has also become a friend. I endorse her for any job large or small. Excellent results!!! Martha Young, Pensacola, FL - Jan. 2021

Gina is excellent! She provided such great service and support. She sold some business real property I inherited that I thought I would never be able to get rid of and she got us a good price! She takes care of all the details and her communication is excellent. She also responds quickly when you have any questions or concerns. If you want the job done and done well, go with Gina!! J.

Our family had a fantastic experience with Gina and her company. She helped us clear out, organize, and sell a house and all the items accumulated therein (since 1976!). We made good money on the house as well as ALL of its contents. My family is extremely grateful for all that Gina did, she was a lifesaver especially given the advanced age of my parents and the fact that my brother and I live out of state. I strongly endorse this company and would use them again in a heartbeat. M. Rowland, Nov. 2020
