We used Andrew and his team for a recent Gala fundraiser, and he was fantastic! We have had nothing but positive feedback from our event guests. I was most impressed with his insight and flexibility. We have some unusual circumstances with group bidding, and he was able to perfectly read the room and give each Live Auction item the perfect amount of time to maximize its potential!
