Jay was a great addition to LB Moving and Construction’s first live auction! His expertise was evident even before the auction. Jay took time work through all the kinks pre-auction so auction day would run smooth as possible, which it did. We plan on having Jay back in forthcoming auctions.” Lorie Brown, Owner.
Jay is awesome, really. I can’t say enough about how well Jay tailored his auctioneer expertise to the needs of the Soaring Eagle Center. This being our first fundraising event, we did not know what to expect by way of response from participants. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive as so many enjoyed the opportunity to donate in a fun and interactive way. Thanks Jay for an evening that exceeded our expectations!” Michele Thomas, Soaring Eagle Center Executive Director.
Jay recently served as auctioneer at our annual Gala and Auction. He did a fantastic job of engaging our guests in the Live Auction and was able to increase our sales by 40% over last year’s Live Auction! In addition, we received several favorable comments from attendees who commented on the gracious and professional manner in which Jay interacted with them. I would highly recommend using Jay for your auction!” -Karla Landrum, Executive Director, Lake Cities Education Foundation
Jay was a great Auctioneer! He was fun, lively, and efficient. Our event was a total success with him on the microphone. We will definitely be using his services again. Walnut Creek Country Club Men’s Golf Association- Christian Schjetnan
We were very pleased with our decision to have Jay Hoffman serve as auctioneer for our event. He created a lot of excitement from the outset of the auction and kept the audience engaged with healthy dose of humor throughout all of the items. Best of all, he helped generate a total 20% higher than our 2015 auction -Brad, Streets of Africa
Jay Hoffman brought professionalism and energy to our auction fundraiser event. He worked the crowd skillfully, pitting the competitive bidders against each other and milking the bids for every penny. He used humor and gentle ribbing to keep the crowd entertained, energetic and bidding! His professionalism and skill made our fundraiser an extremely successful event and we will definitely enlist his services for next year’s event.” -Jenny Cline, Exploration Academy
This was the first time we have done a live auction. We had Jay Hoffman as our auctioneer and he did a great job getting the crowd into it. He was fun, lively and knew just how far to push without losing the crowd. We hope to do this again and will definitely call Jay!” -Katie Bourland, Junior Achievement of Dallas
Jay was a true professional and brought real value to our recent fundraiser! Having a pro auctioneer handling the bidding process definitely helped us raise more money than we would’ve if we’d tried to do it on our own. I’d highly recommend Jay to anyone wanting to make a splash with their auction and increase monies raised!” -Sharon Winneker, Executive Director, Roof Angels
I wanted to thank you for your kind offer to auctioneer our huge Tornado Benefit Concert at Southern Junction last Sunday. It was obvious from the start that you were a professional, and our live auction items were in good hands. Because of your ability to move the crowd, we were able to raise more money and get more people involved in the live auction than we ever thought possible. In the future, I will be sure to recommend your services to anyone needing a competent professional Auctioneer. Again, thank you for all you did for us! Blessings to you and your family!” -Rick Richards
Jay was a huge contributing factor in the success of our auction benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital and such a pleasure to work with!” – Karin Crider, Epsilon Sigma Alpha
I had the glorious opportunity for Jay Hoffman and his wife Julie to facilitate an auction for charity. The event was called Bra Art held at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles #3108 Dallas. This was our first attempt at a live auction. Jay was so very helpful. He not only helped with last minute organization, but followed this up with incredible crowd participation. Julie was most helpful with coordinating the registration of buyers an collecting the bids for the auctioned items. Without their participation we would not have had such success. I can’t wait until we do this again.” -Tracy Clinton, FOE of Dallas.
Jay did a great job running our Kentucky Derby calcutta. He added a new level of fun and excitement to our party, plus we raised about 25% more money than the prior year.” -Jack LaGere.
Jay was great! He interacted well with the crowd and worked the bidders to make the whole auction experience fun for our audience and profitable for our school. Jay’s best quality was managing his time and keeping on track in order to get through our auction items. Our school grossed 10k more than the previous year. We are glad we found Jay and will call him again for St. Maria Goretti’s 35th Annual Kountry Karnival Dinner Dance and Auction.” -Olga Watson.
Our Sunday benefit brought in $3380. Greatly exceeded our expectations. I would say to anyone that using the services of a professional auctioneer is worth the fee. Your interaction with the audience was the difference. We appreciate you working with us on the timing. The crowd arrived a little later than we expected. We will definitely call on you again. Thanks!” -Andy Asberry, VFW of Crowley.
