We brought on Ryan to our auction at the suggestion of a colleague, and it was one of the best decisions of the year! Ryan was the perfect fit for our event, adding a unique energy and atmosphere that I have never seen out of an auctioneer. Reading the mood and vibe of the crowd, he was able to really enhance the entire experience for our audience, all while significantly increasing the revenue we got out of our auction. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Ryan for any charity auction, and we plan to have him as a featured part of our event for years to come.”

Ryan Watson at Raising the Bid is a fantastic auctioneer. He helped us raise $13,280 with a handful of auction items. His enthusiasm is catching, and he can drive the price of the item above its value easily. He manages a live auction professionally and effectively. He is serious about raising money for worthy organizations.”
