Sara Rose Bytnar Wins International Auctioneer Championship

Third Generation Auctioneer Wins Women’s Title One Year after Finishing Second to Her Mother

 

(Naples, FL – July 26, 2017) – Sara Rose Bytnar of Naples, Florida was recently crowned winner of the Women’s National Auctioneers Association (NAA) 30th Annual International Auctioneer Championship in Columbus, Ohio.   The 31 year old Rose Bytnar, a third generation auctioneer, grew up with four female auctioneers in her family to guide and mentor her, to which she credits much of her success.   She finished second last year to her mother, Beth Rose, by one-tenth of one point.

 

Twenty women competed for the right to be known as one of the best auction professionals in the world.  Rose Bytnar, Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI), Accredited Auctioneer Real Estate (AARE), Auction Marketing Management (AMM), received a $5,000 cash award, trophy and championship ring.   The contest included a preliminary bid-calling round, an interview round, and a final round of bid-calling that included seven women.

 

“I am honored to have won the auctioneer championship and be recognized by the world’s largest association dedicated to auction professionals,” said Bytnar.  “My involvement with the NAA has provided an opportunity to network with the best auction professionals in the business and the educational opportunities to keep me at the top of my field.”

 

As part of her responsibilities as auction champion, Rose Bytnar will travel to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN later this year to conduct the annual NAA Toy Auction for patients and their siblings.  All of the children leave as winners after bidding successfully on a toy to take home. The NAA formed its partnership with St. Jude in 1995 and has raised more than $5 million to support St. Jude.

 

Rose Bytnar focuses on luxury home, commercial property and golf course real estate auctions in Ohio, Michigan and Florida for her family’s business, Beth Rose Real Estate and Auctions.  She is also an auctioneer with Scott Robertson Auctioneers, one of the premier professional benefit auction companies in the United States.

Andy White won the 2017 World Automobile Auctioneer Championship (WAAC) at Manheim Pennsylvania Auto Auction, completing the third and final leg of Auctioneering’s Triple Crown. Previously White won the 2016 World Livestock Auctioneer Championship and the 2013 International Auctioneer Championship. The WAAC receives a check for $5000, a trophy and a championship ring.

The World Automobile Auctioneer Championship saw a field of over 100 auctioneers and ringman competing for the title of World Champion. The annual contest is held at wholesale automobile auctions around the country and features top auction talent from the United States, Canada and other nations. White is only the second auctioneer in history to win all three major contests.

White is an Ashland, Ohio based auctioneer and co-owner of Ohio’s fastest growing auction company, RES Auction Services. White began his love for auctioneering as a child attending annual livestock auctions at the Country Fair. From that humble beginning White now appears on auction blocks around the United States and at internationally televised Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions.

In addition to modern and classic cars, White also sells luxury real estate in Ohio and around the nation, pure bred livestock, heavy equipment and agricultural equipment and land.

“My wife, Megan and I are blessed with three young boys and it was my goal when I began this journey was to win a championship ring for each of them,” White said in his acceptance speech. "Auctioneering is a team sport and I am so fortunate to be surrounded by the greatest group of professionals our industry has to offer."
