The word auctioneer, for many people, conjures an image of a fast-talking pitch man, holding a gavel who can entice you into bidding on a glass of ice water in the dead of winter. While bid-calling is the most crucial part of an auctioneer’s job, it is only a minor aspect of what he or she does. An auctioneer plays several roles – such as that of an office manager, public relations manager, accountant, and coordinator, to name a few. Though auctioneering looks like a lucrative profession, success in this industry is not a sure thing. A combination of training, skills and determination can be helpful.
