Comments from Ocean Tomo Auctions:
"Charlie Ross is truly the auctioneer's auctioneer. His presence, world class charm, and singular wit have been some of the key building blocks in our joint effort to create a live auction marketplace for intellectual property. I wouldn't even consider holding an auction without him."
"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."
"In all my years of attending auctions, I've never witnessed another auctioneer with such an unrivalled ability to charm a crowd, and form a relationship with the participants in the way that Charlie Ross does. Any auction prides itself on being somewhat of a show. When Ross is auctioning, he is the show."
Comments from Gooding & Company:
"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."
"His skill on the rostrum is a sight to behold and it is further evidenced by the numerous auction records he has set including, but not limited to, many categories of automobiles, intellectual property, automobile artwork, and motorcycles."
