“In the 15 years I’ve been involved with benefit auctions, I have not seen another auctioneer as gifted as Kurt Johnson. Because he’s the master of his trade, I’ve referred him to several nonprofits in the metro area and all of them have been thrilled with the results. Even the most skeptical become believers in the value of live auctions after they witness Kurt work his magic. You will not be disappointed when you hire Kurt Johnson as your auctioneer. Your guests will have more fun and your organization will make more money.”
