I had all of the regional newspaper reporters lined up, 3 television stations lined up waiting to interview us and to take footage and write copy for their newspapers.
During this past year, I had the opportunity to sell out a large resort, down in my area, that almost everyone in the community and surrounding states had had some kind of relationship with… We sold a ton of personal property – took us 6 days.
When I went to the seller of this merchandise, and told him how we were going to promote it, I had it in the back of my mind that we were going to use AuctionServices.com and that would be my first experience using them, but I had heard so much about them.
We were very fortunate that we got the auction booked, called AuctionServices.com, got a hold of Tammy. Naturally, like a lot of people in this business, we were on a tight, tight deadline. Auction Services, at that time, were in the process of doing a lot of updates and I know they were extremely busy. Tammy took care of me, did an email blast on it, wrote up the press releases.
The press releases were just absolutely astounding. I cannot imagine the coverage that we had.
My seller had been CEO of several national and international companies and when I went to book the auction, he said “who are you going to use for public relations”? and I said you hire me and I’ll tell you.
Tammy grabbed a hold of this thing and it was unbelievable. I was standing down in front of the resort and I had all of the regional newspaper reporters lined up, 3 television stations lined up waiting to interview us and to take footage and write copy for their newspapers.
My seller came out and said “how in the world did you get all of these people here” and I told him, “these people (Auction Services) were good!”. He was astounded. He just could not believe the results.
We could have done the auction without any additional advertising. We did open houses over 4 different days and have over 1500 people come to each one of those open houses and that’s before the auction started.
It was amazing, can’t say enough good things about AuctionServices.com. I’m getting ready to sell a mental asylum, one of the first in Oklahoma, built back in the teens and Tammy’s going to be the one I’m going to call! Excellent, excellent service!
