“From the very beginning, Freddie was fully engaged and worked wonderfully, and artfully, to raise more money than we dreamed possible. He genuinely cared as much as we did about the outcome of our fundraiser! Freddie was well prepared too – he did his homework so that he understood the magnitude of the cause he was championing. He asked us great questions upfront and had excellent suggestions that made our event more profitable and meaningful. He was on time, if not early, for every meeting and on the day of our event. Freddie is an absolute professional in every way and we will most definitely use him again.” – Executive Director
“Freddie is awesome! He made great effort to understand our work and why it is important. He found multiple ways to communicate that to our guests. With great enthusiasm and professionalism he raised more money that we thought possible. We are grateful and cannot wait to have him back next year.” – Executive Director
“Freddie’s passion for auctioneering was evident the moment we began working with him. We had recommendations for several other auctioneers and decided to hire Freddie due to his enthusiasm and curiosity. Freddie visited each of the beneficiaries to understand our charity in depth, asked many questions, and helped come up with ideas and strategies to make our event both memorable and enjoyable. Lastly, he doesn’t nickel and dime percentages during the event, and he was incredibly generous with his time responding to texts, emails, and driving out to the Bay Area for meetings. Freddie was on fire at the event and was able to create a record breaking auction event. We would recommend Freddie in a heart beat to anyone looking to raise money!” – Executive Director
