About Eric

Eric Johnson has more than 20 years of experience on television and radio, and performing and presenting in front of groups ranging in size from 30-3,000. He has parlayed this experience into a career as one of Northern California’s most in-demand charity auctioneers, with more than $4 million raised for clients in the past three years alone.

He holds dual degrees from Duke University and a Masters from USC. He is bonded in the state of California, and has a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist designation from the National Auctioneers Association.

Eric hand-ties his bowties. No clip-ons here.

He is known for his research.

Catholic school?
He knows whose feast day it is.

Magnum of Zin?
He’ll quote Robert Parker.

Home in Mendocino?
He’ll recommend restaurants within walking distance. In other words, he’ll not only auction your items, he’ll be an advocate for your cause.

Most importantly, Eric recognizes the dual nature of your event: raising money, and also allowing your community to get together, socialize and have fun. He’ll make sure to maximize your revenue without high-pressure tactics or making people feel guilty. People who have a good time come back next year, and they invite friends. And Eric knows the most important phrase in an auctioneer’s vocabulary isn’t “Sold!” It’s “Thank you.”
