“Thank you for your superior auctioneering…..the event was the most successful in the last ten years”

Karen Joliat, Children’s Village

“Thank you for your help and very special auctioneering.  Everybody I have spoken to enjoyed your talents and thought you made the night.  We were VERY successful,  beyond my wildest imagination.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

Maicki W.

“….we learned a lot, your calm, charm and humor made the night great for everyone.”  

Jennifer M, Edwardsburg Sports Complex.

“You are quite simply one of the best things that ever happened to FAW & M. Thank You.” 


“You were brilliant, although relentless in your pressure to keep the bidder bidding higher. I believe you were the reason the live AND silent auctions did as well as they did. Great job!” 

Marilyn W.

“You are my hero! Thank you for every bit of advice you shared and your fantastic performance for our 1st live auction last night. Your guidance with the 52 card drawing, the educational video before the live auction, the flow of the program, the template for our printed program, and suggested set up of live auction item tables made this event a success. We wouldn’t have hit our targets without you. Thank you. See you soon!” 

Denise K.

“Thanks so much for once again adding to the fun and ‘fun’draising of the evening!  It is always such a pleasure working with you and I know you are a major key to our success!” 

Kirsten Kesman, Holy Family School

“I cannot tell you how much you added to the Gala….WOW you re awesome!Thanks again for your tremendous gift!! ” 

Katie Spillane, Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan

“Charles helped our Rotary Club raise more money in 15 minutes than we had all year.  He helped “tune” the whole evening and taught us how it is easier to catch bees with honey than vinegar.  As I am to action photos and “Bucket List” adventures, he is to charity auctions……an artist second to none!!” 

Bill Cowger, Acacia Photography and Past President, Troy Rotary.

If you want to earn money for your Charity Event hire Charles! I met Charles at a Troy Chamber networking event and asked him to conduct our auction for the Troy Women’s Association annual operations budget Christmas fundraiser. Charles conducted the auction with fun and enthusiasm which resulted in higher bids and more dollars for our organization. He was not only an excellent auctioneer, but extremely personable and at times a comedian. These traits translated into a great time for all attendees. Without his services our organization would not have increased our net profits by 30%. I highly recommend Charles for your Charity event! – Diane Claeys, PMPNote: although this is an old testimonial, from the early days of LinkedIn, and this was a very small auction, I leave it because it sums up the essence of what I bring every time. – CW
