Going once! Going twice! SOLD!!
National Auctioneers Day is observed every year on the third Thursday in April. According to the National Auctioneers Association, it is estimated nearly a quarter-trillion dollars in goods and services are sold by professional auctioneer’s each year.
A sales method over 2,000 years old, the rhythmic cadence used in The United States is uniquely American. Thought to have developed during the Civil War, the rapidly punctuated chatter of these auctioneers not only get the job done but make it entertaining as well.
Auctioneers provide a service to both the buyer and the seller. They must maintain high standards to stay competitive.
Across the country, there are a variety of auctions from livestock and art sales to automobile and surplus auctions. Left the imagination, just about anything can be put up for auction.
