John Sisk Auctioneers, Inc.
Auctioneers was established in January of 1981. John attended
Academy in Bryan, Texas for something fun to do, not really meaning to get in the auction
business, while recovering from an accident that had caused him to spend the previous
13 months in the hospital.
Encouraged by Walter Britten, the schools
founder, that he really had some natural ability
in the bid-calling aspect of auctioneering, and with his corporate business knowledge coupled
with his experience in the construction area, he would do well to consider this as a profession.
Having been to only one auction (a pure-bred
cattle auction) in his life, prior to auction school,
the idea seem far fetched. Once again, encouraged to practice and attend the Texas Auctioneers
Association's Convention by Walter Britten, he attended the convention that year and three
months out of auction school was awarded the Reserve Grand Champion Bid Calling
trophy for 1981.
From that exposure, John began doing contract
work for auctioneers all over the State, which
he still does, and eventually began setting up his own sales as well. He believes in continuing
education and is constantly trying to better himself and his company.
John is a member in good standing of the
