Frequently referred to as Florida’s Favorite Fundraising Auctioneer, Scott Robertson is a full time professional benefit auctioneer. For more than 20 years, he has assisted schools and non-profit organizations to meet or exceed their fundraising goals. This Florida State Champion Auctioneer has conducted thousands of fundraising auctions. In 2016 Scott and his associate auctioneer, Sara Rose Bytnar, helped not for profit organizations raise more than $35 million dollars. The combined total rasied for the past 5 years exceeded $129 million dollars.
Scott is one of only 150 auctioneers in the United States to receive the designation of Benefit Auctioneer Specialists awarded by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA). When the NAA Foundation needed help with their own fundraising campaign at the National Conference and Show, Scott was recruited to lead the special appeal and surpassed the organizations goal every year.
His contagious energy and enthusiasm assist in his ability to entertain at charity auctions and is evidenced by the percentage of attendees remaining in their seats bidding and cheering until the end of the auction. Scott takes great pride in helping not for profit organizations raise funds to help their cause. Scott eats, sleeps and breathes Fundraising Auctions. He is honored to play a part in making the world a better place.
