Brings Together More Than 100 Real Estate Auctioneers and Brokers from Across the U.S. for Advanced Auction Training in Kansas City, Missouri

November 1, 2010 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Auctioneers from across the nation gathered in Kansas City, Mo., October 25-26 for United Country Real Estate’s 2010 Auction Summit. The event featured 12 guest speakers who provided advanced real estate auction training to the more than 100 attendees on a wide variety of today’s most relevant industry topics.

“We strive to offer Auctioneers the best educational opportunities through our annual Auction Summits. The fact that attendees continue to refer to them as must-attend events is something we are very proud of,” said Mike Jones, president of United Country Auction Services. “This year we had auctioneers and brokers from all over the country. It’s very exciting to see some of the nation’s best auctioneers and real estate professionals gathered together with a shared commitment to ongoing professional development and excellence in the industry.”

The 2-day event agenda included training on subjects including online auction best practices, leveraging social media marketing and search engine optimization techniques, prospecting and qualifying auctions, auction technology, PCI (credit card) compliance, commercial property auctions, residential development auctions, state-of-the-art auction marketing and reporting, and conducting a live multi-parcel auction training session. United Country’s Auction Summit also provided a platform for networking and building relationships to promote business development.

Attendees received information relating to today’s current market conditions and success strategies for the future, as well as the latest news and updates from United Country including the launch of the new and improved website, www.UCAuctionServices.com, the new United Country iPhone application, and review of many of the company’s recent successes and highlights.

“Providing industry-leading auction education and training requires a significant amount of time and planning, but United Country strongly believes it is our responsibility to provide advanced educational and business opportunities and we are fully committed to doing so,” said Shawn Terrel, vice president of United Country Auction Services. “United Country provides real estate and auction solutions to more than 135 auctioneers and 3,500 brokers/agents across the U.S., Costa Rica and Panama and we will continue to strengthen the auction industry by raising the professional education bar to new levels as we meet our clients’ expectations.”

The next United Country Auction Summit will be held in conjunction with the company’s 2011 Training & Awards Convention in Austin, Texas, on March 7, 2011.

The success of the 2010 event was evident in the positive feedback from attendees:

“I was impressed with the wealth of knowledge displayed not only from the presenters, but also the willingness to share ideas, information and success strategies by all the auctioneers in attendance.
