Royal Auction Academy               

Proudly Presents

Basic Practical Course In Auctioneering 

As an Auctioneer, you’ll have many options open to you. You can be your own boss or you can work for an auction company. Either way, you’re in control of your own destiny. Your success will be directly related to the energy and effort you put towards your goals. You can get a successful start in the auction business by investing a minimal amount of your time and money to attend the Royal Auction Academy.  You’ll be able to earn the money you’ve invested back quickly — maybe even on your first or second auction. The auction business is a very people oriented business.  You’ll be working everyday with sellers, buyers, business leaders and other members of your community to sell products ranging from furniture and cars to antiques, business assets, storage units and livestock. Auctioneers are usually paid a commission, salary or set fee.  Commissions can run anywhere from 5% to 30% of the gross sale.The hours you work at your auction business are very flexible.  You’ll be able to set your own pace.  Because many auctions are held in the evening or on the weekend, you can work at another job until you establish your business.  It’s also the perfect second career.
