Comments From Our Clients

  • Paul Ramirez was our auctioneer for the Tucson Wildlife Center "Rejoice Dinner" fund raiser in Jan 2012. We were very fortunate to have Paul as he significantly increased our auction proceeds far above expectations. He is a very creative auctioneer and suggested several unique ways to present our candidate offerings. Paul is engaging and knows how to motivate potential bidders. His enthusiasm and humor energizes the audience. Because of Paul's excellent presentation of our auction items we believe we achieved about three times the revenue that we had anticipated. All of the attendees enjoyed the auction as the highlight of the evening. We were so pleased that we have scheduled Paul again for our 2013 event.
    M. Lisa Bates, MS, Executive Director, Tucson Wildlife Center, Inc.

  • Paul Ramirez and the Charity Auction Team are TROT's "secret weapon" when it comes to our event fundraising efforts! Paul's professional expertise, his auction style, and his rapport with the crowd are a perfect fit for our organization - his auctions are fun and produce fabulous results for our charity. Paul knows his business and willingly shares ideas to help us maximize the proceeds from our events. Many children with special needs from the Tucson community have directly benefited from the funds raised by Ramirez Auction Services and we are grateful for their supportive, professional assistance. I highly recommend the Ramirez Auction Services to any nonprofit organization that wants a good outcome at their events!
    Leslie Esselburn, Executive Director Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT)

  • Paul has been auctioneer several times when I have donated a large original painting to a charity event. No one does a better job auctioning my work then he does. Paul does his homework, knows his audience, has good knowledge of the items he's auctioning, and says just the right thing to elicit the highest bid. I am always thrilled when I see he is the auctioneer.
    Diana Madaras, Madaras Gallery

  • Thank you so much for helping us at the Santa Cruz County Fair. Too many people don't realize what a great talent we have in you! I appreciate all you do for us and the young people in our county and state!
    Dean Fish, Santa Cruz County Fair

  • Thank you for your professionalism in auctioneering for our Gala & Auction. Your team was the highlight to our evening with many compliments on the Live Auction. The outcome of this event was fruitful. CFCA is very blessed to have your support!
    D. Scott Munro, Executive Director of Southern Arizona Christian Family Care Agency
