Layne is one of three Certified Benefit Auctioneer Specialists
in Canada.

Together we can achieve your goals.

With a professional, you will inspire giving. By engaging The Auctionista for your next event, you are hiring a specialist with hands-on experience in the art and science of planning, executing and performing at fundraising auction events.

Whether you are coordinating a first time event or taking your signature event to the next level, feel confident that we will work alongside you every step of the way to ensure you reach your goals.

A professional Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) is involved and invested in your fundraiser for months leading up to event day. Layne commits the time to get to know your organization, your cause and your audience and help set realistic and achievable fundraising goals. Introducing fresh ideas; the latest in auction trends and wildly innovative revenue generating strategies is all part of the package when you work with Layne. In fact, what you’ll find is that much of the risk in event fundraising can be eliminated by working with a BAS.


When you hire Layne, you get so much more than a ‘bid caller’, you are ensuring commitment to your cause from your community. 

 “I used to be a non-believer until I met Layne, aka The Auctionista, and I saw the profound difference having a trained professional do a live auction makes. The key differences are strategy, professionalism, and funds.”
