JJ was excellent in playing to the crowd. He was empathetic, deeply understood our mission and above all else, he was real. His approach was authentic and engaging. I heard feedback from several guests that he was the best auctioneer they had ever encountered. I highly recommend JJ!

JJ was able to properly convey our message and how every dollar raised will be used by Dirt. This was our best year yet and we are excited to have him back next year.

In previous golf tournaments we have used a "text to give" format, and the results have
been ok, but not great. This year, we hired JJ Raterink as our auctioneer for a paddle
raise. JJ helped us raised 5x what we did the previous year!
