Clarence White Auctioneer Testimonials

His ability to read the auction floor with clarity and to intuitively understand what needs to be done at key moments in an auction is impressive. Importantly, Clarence brings real negotiation power to the table. His work with buyers and sellers both on and off the auction floor is outstanding. His contribution in getting deals over the line goes well beyond just calling the auction and well beyond what most auctioneers are willing or capable of doing.”

“Not only is his technique faultless but his audience empathy and ability to read people and respond accordingly is outstanding. Watching Clarence in action you immediately get the impression of someone who is at the top of their game and someone who has honed their skills through countless auctions and countless hours of practice. Without a doubt Clarence is one of the most professional auctioneers in the industry and one of the best I have ever seen.”

Debbie Donnelley - Phillips Pantzer Donnelley
“Clarence’s ability to read the auction floor is unsurpassed. He understands the signals buyers emit and knows exactly when to push, when to allow time and when to use humour to diffuse the tension. He is a consummate professional who brings a lot more to the table than just calling the auction. He has an in-depth understanding of the sales process and is very effective in conversations with buyers and vendors. Clarence was an integral ingredient in building our auction business and market share over a number of years while we were part of the McGrath network and when we stepped out independently he was our first choice auctioneer. “

“I worked with Clarence White for several years, he is a great auctioneer with strong presence and a very professional yet approachable style.
