test 2554Absentee Bidding with us!

Hopefully we've got you pretty excited about the upcoming auction, now less than a week away, we can't wait to see everyone come out and support The Wendy Glenn Memorial Event. But what if you can't make it to Douglas? Can you still have a chance to win that amazing trip or priceless piece of art? Of course! Ramirez Auction Service Inc. is here to place your bidding (literally).

Sign up to bid absentee and our staff will work closely with you to create a personalized bidding plan and execute your bids. Your bidding plan includes the items you wish to bid on in both live and silent auctions.

Whats Next?

Go to our AUCTIONS page and "Register to Bid" for The Wendy Glenn Memorial Event. Complete the application with an email and create your new secure account. You will be able to view the auction catalog and place your bids online with other absentee bidders. But remember bidding closes at 5:00pm (MST) on Friday April 29, 2016.

How Does Absentee Bidding Work?

Absentee bidding is simply the method of placing bids on auction items prior to the start of the auction when you, the bidder are unable to attend the live event. Your bid will be used to place bids for items, even though you are not there! So, when you find a lot on which you want to bid, input the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the particular experience or item. This amount is your "absentee" bid. Once the live auction starts, we at Ramirez Auction Service Inc. delegate a staff member to bid on your behalf by communicating to the auctioneer via your unique paddle/number via real-time floor bidding. This does not mean the bidding starts at your max bid, and don't worry we will never bid higher than your maximum absentee amount. 

Here is an example:

  • Slim places an absentee bid of $1,000.00 for lot #6 on line
  • Tex places an absentee bid of $2,000 for lot #6 on line
  • The auctioneer starts the LIVE bidding and a floor bid comes in for $1,500.00
  • If no one else raises their paddle, Tex will emerge as the winning bidder at $1,600.00 (if the next bid increment amount is $100.00)
  • Tex is alerted to his win and then makes arrangements with the charity to pay and pick up lot #6

Alternatively, you can choose to bid by phone during the live auction, but remember these arrangements must be made in advance by contacting Kelly Glenn-Kimbro at (520) 508-5208

So weither you make it out to Douglas, place a bid online or bid by phone, we look forward to making it possible for you to participate in this special event!

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!
