Youngest certified auctioneer starts business in San Luis Valley
Alamosa, CO 81101
“This has been a lifelong dream of mine. I took Leading Edge to find out what it takes to run a business. My auctioneer instructor told me that I will be first a businessman, second a salesman and thirdly an auctioneer. I grew up attending auctions with my dad and my uncle. My focus will be on all types of auctions, including the online service for people who might just want to sell one or two items.”
Lawrence explained that the main types of auctions fall into the categories of livestock, charity, real estate, estate sales, house hold and farm machinery.
He is thankful to his dad, Larry, for encouraging him to pursue these dreams and teaching him a good work ethic. He is grateful for his teachers and for the SBDC’s assistance. He also learned a lot from the instructors at the auctioneer school. Now that he has these graduation milestones behind him, he is looking forward to making a living as a professional doing something that he loves to do while providing a service to the community.
