The Southeastern School of Auctioneering is a business oriented school that provides skills needed not only to become a licensed auctioneer, but to share with you knowledge to build your own auction business.  

Whether you are interested in real estate, general, coin or antique and estate auctions, you will be able to work with instructors from a wide variety of auctioneering areas who have years of invaluable knowledge and experience in the auction business.

During your time at the school, you will have the opportunity to perfect your chant, visit auctions in the area, call bids at a live auction and network with licensed auctioneers along with others who are taking the course to become licensed.

If you have watched other auctioneers and wondered if you could learn to call bids, don’t hesitate!  We can help you develop the skills you need.

History of The SouthEastern School of Auctioneering

Southeastern School of Auctioneering was conceived in 1982 by Larry J. Meares, who was serving on the South Carolina Auctioneers Commission at that time.
Having been on the committee to help put the SC Auction Law together and approved by the legislation process in South Carolina in 1975 and getting final approval of the law in 1977, he found there was a need to train persons in the auctioneering profession so that the law could be followed by auctioneers.
In 1982 and 1983 he assembled a workbook detailing how to call on clients such as banks, estate representatives, business owners, attorneys, and many other professionals to promote auctions. The book also included information on how to call bids, set up a variety of auctions, sell the items, account for all sales proceeds, pay sales taxes to the proper state agency, deliver the goods to the buyers, and other requirements of a professional auctioneer.
The school was approved by the South Carolina Department of Education and the South Carolina Auctioneers Commission.
The first class in November 1983 had five students, and we have grown tremendously since that time. Our class limit is twenty students because that gives instructors more one on one time with the students.
Today Southeastern School of Auctioneering is approved in most states and has more than 1,500 graduates. We also teach 12 to 15 continuing education seminars each year from South Carolina to Canada, and are continuing to grow, teaching online auctions, onsite auctions, internet advertising, environmental concerns, and many other subjects.

Our Missionimageedit_1_6360976990
