"Any auction prides itself on being somewhat of a show. When Charlie Ross is auctioning, he is the show."

Without doubt the finest auctioneer I have ever seen in action is Mr Charlie Ross. Charlie's vast experience and ease on the rostrum, combined with his charm and quick wit, enable him to engage and keep total control of a room that is sometimes as large as two thousand people.

The auction skills of Charlie Ross are rivalled by no one. His ability to warm up a room and make auction participants feel right at home is what continues to draw crowds, get more bidding, and result in his many world record sales.

You were absolutely phenomenal and made a real difference to the amount we raised on the evening. Your energy and exuberance is fantastic to watch and makes any auction not only raise a staggering amount but is also extremely entertaining for all our guests.

I'm never quite sure how you keep up your amazing energy levels Charlie, however I'm so glad that you do because without you we wouldn't have been able to raise even half as much money as we did.
