Jim is a professional Benefit/Charity/Fundraising Auctioneer. He is recognized as one of the most effective and entertaining Charity Auctioneers in the country, and is an expert in Benefit Galas and Auctions. He focuses on first class Auction Fundraising for 501(c)(3) Charitable Organizations.

Jim has helped raise millions of dollars for charity through auction events, charity golf tournaments, benefit fashion shows, and his unique abilities as an Emcee. He works one-on-one with a tight-knit client base that allows him to concentrate on each charity, school and organization that he helps and he proudly maintains a 95% client retention rate. While based in Southern California, he is available anywhere in the US or Canada.

Jim has helped plan countless successful fundraising auctions, joined forces on numerous prestigious celebrity galas— including recently selling a dinner for 10 valued at $2,500 for a whopping $30,000…and just to top it off, he then sold it AGAIN for another $30,000! Jim is also an expert at the popular and critical Fund-a-Need concept, and has repeatedly pulled in bids of $100,000 or higher. He has also been awarded the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) Education Institute; there are less than 150 auctioneers around the world who have acquired the BAS professional designation.

Plus he's REAL funny, and his Mom says he's cute.

Dear Jim, Thank you so much for all you did for our fundraising event last night. You were professional and accommodating from the time we signed you up until the time you left the event. I received so much positive feedback about all you did. You have restored my faith in professional fundraising auctioneers. I imagine that yours is not an easy job and that at this time of the year you are busy and probably tired. Yet, despite this, you displayed energy, joy, and warmth. You did an outstanding job of representing us and our culture. Thank you seems so inadequate, but I thank you nonetheless from the bottom of my heart. Many, many thanks.

Jim was the quarterback and got the “Gig” rolling and Nick Niere delivered the auction. From Jim to Nick I could not have imagined a better experience. As important as the event was their help in preparing for the realities and operation of an auction was awesome.
