Mark Schustrin

Designated Benefit Auction Specialist

Honestly, I have truly found my calling. I believe my purpose in life is to work with my wonderful clients and their donors to raise much needed funds for incredible causes. With a degree in Art History and a background in theater and sales, I have found my way to the world of benefit auctions. I wear my heart on my sleeve and your donors will feel that. My energetic approach mixed with my earnest sincerity lends itself to creating a safe space for donors to give. 

And it seems to work.  Time after time I break previous fundraising records and receive the most positive feedback confirming I am where I’m supposed to be – raising funds for a worthy cause like yours.

My Strategy

Being a good charity auctioneer is part strategy, part theater and part psychology. 

Much goes into the successful planning of your event, but it’s once your event is underway, that my role really becomes the crux.  The timing of my bid calling is paramount to getting everyone bidding with me to participate and stretch their capacity for a greater return.  By focusing on your mission, using all the tools available to me – humor, heart, energy, gauging the mood in the room – your guests will respond with enthusiasm and feel great about their contribution.

Mark has been a true partner in our auction process. Throughout the planning of our event, he provided us with a wealth of knowledge which turned out to be critical in setting up the successful auction. As an auctioneer, he kept the sale exciting, engaging and moving. As a result, we sold more than ever before by a wide margin. I would highly recommend Mark, unless your auction is on the same day as ours!

Jennifer YoustraBoard of Trustees, Woodside Priory School

Mark was incredible. His energy, enthusiasm, knowledge of each of the lots and the way he engaged our bidders was unbelievable. We sold tens of thousands of dollars more because of Mark and I would highly recommend him.

Danielle GallagherPresident, Lafayette Partners in Education

Mark was excellent to work with. Excellent in preparation as well as in execution. He puts his heart and soul into working with an organization and I highly recommend him.

Shara FislerExecutive Director, Ocean Discovery Institute

This year we hired Mark to be our auctioneer and it was a tremendous choice. We quadrupled the money that we made! We will definitely have him back!
