Colby and his team helped the Wild Sheep Foundation break six new state and provincial records for special permit bids including a new World Record bid for the Montana Bighorn License at $480,000! Colby and his team bring a level of auction professionalism, enthusiasm, and energy unmatched in the conservation and hunting industry.
Colby Gines and his crew at MM Auction Services were a great addition to our event. For years we had tried different ways to add energy and excitement to our auctions with very limited success. As a non-profit organization, our auction is our main source of income, and MM Auction Services has that special knack of being able to get a few more bids out of every item. The professionalism that they have is second to none, and with all their experience they were able to give us pointers and recommendations that we will use to make our event even better. We used to have attendees come up to us after our events and tell us that “we were trying to bid, but the spotters didn’t see us.” We were obviously leaving bids in the room, and that is not the way to raise money. I know for sure that every person in the crowd that was trying to bid, Colby and his guys saw their hands and did their familiar yell! Our items were definitely selling for higher amounts! Bringing in MM Auction Services was one of the best decisions that we made. They definitely added the energy and excitement that we were looking for.
The enthusiasm and excitement generated by the team of ring men contributed to a higher level of interest and attention on the part of auction attendees. The higher level and attention resulted in significant increases in revenue for the chapter. Colby Gines is a true professional in every respect.
MM Auction Services are a key component of our annual fundraising auction activities. Colby and his crew keep things moving and really motivate the buyers to get in there and bid. They work seamlessly with our auctioneer and the staff so the audience sees a coordinated team running the auction. Perhaps the most important thing they do is to make it FUN for everybody there. We highly recommend MM Auction Services…they are definitely worth it!
Colby Gines and MM Auctions were instrumental in increasing our profits and overall excitement at the 2015 Pope and Young Convention Auction. The crew from MM enthusiasm was contagious as they interacted with the large crowd urging on bidders. Having MM help with our auction was the single best thing we have done since hiring a professional auctioneer decades ago. I would strongly recommend their services to enhance any size auction.
Thanks for providing us with your ring crew services during our annual auction. We appreciate your professionalism, knowledge and assistance in helping our clients enter their bids. Your energy and enthusiasm helps to keep the bidding lively and exciting for our bidders. We look forward to working with you for our annual auction next year. It’s certainly been a great return on our investment.
Thanks so much to MM Auction Services for the great service we’ve had from you for both the ring services as well as the live internet streaming and online bidding that you provide for us. The additional exposure through internet streaming gave us not only better exposure but increased our sales. Thank you for creating a great avenue to bring our auction to the technology highway. We look forward to working with you again in 2017 by offering another service to our clients and a great way for expanding our business.
The value of MM Auction Services goes without saying. Their talents, professionalism and energy have made a significant difference to our bottom line. At the end of the day, results must be accountable and have a measure of impact to justify the investment. We are proud to have forged this partnership and genuinely regard their services to be a staple for furthering our mission.
