Weekly Auctions of Exceptional Items
WorldCrest Auctions, Inc
WorldCrest Auctions, Inc. is unique in a variety of ways. It should also be noted that, unlike most gun dealers and auctioneers, Texas auctioneers are heavily regulated. A Texas auctioneer can go to jail for what may be a common practice elsewhere. Most of our employees hold an auctioneer license, which only 50 percent of those who take the test pass it. Unlike most states, you cannot hold an auction in Texas without an auctioneer’s license. This includes eBay (unless you own what you are auctioning and the items were not bought for resell). In regard to the Internet sales, two of the principals hold an ATS (Auction Technology Specialist) designation. This is a special designation obtained upon completion of 30 hours of classroom training and accomplishing certain things in the field. There are only 49 auctioneers in the world with this designation and only three companies with two people having the designation. Finally, WorldCrest Auctions, Inc. is the runner-up winner in the 2013 USAToday/National Auctioneers Associations eNewsletter contest. We beat 815 other auction houses. For the next round, WorldCrest has been nominated for fourteen awards. We have some unique personnel, beginning with our president, Bill Burch, ATS. Bill is one of only 49 people in the world, out of the thousands who have tried, who has achieved the ATS, or Auction Technology Specialist designation. This has given him the expertise to be able to bring from 1,000 to 1,500 people to an auction from throughout the United States through the online Internet bidding. Bill’s political activities began over 35 years ago. Bill’s efforts are one of the principle reasons Steve Munisteri won the chairmanship of the Republican Party of Texas. Bill also was appointed by the Texas Supreme Court to serve as a public director of the Texas State Bar Association. Currently Bill is the chairman of G.R.I.T (GrassRoots Institute of Texas). Bill served in the Army Security Agency during the Vietnam War. In addition to running the company, Bill is a Texas licensed auctioneer and serves as our main auctioneer. Our vice-president is commissioner Jane Burch. Jane served four terms (the maximum one you can serve in a row due to term limits) on the State Republican Executive Committee and served as the chairman of the Auxiliaries and Coalitions Committee. Jane also served as one of our Texas State Fire Commissioners. Jane is also a Texas Licensed Auctioneer. She generally handles the duties of floor manager and cashier. While not working an auction, Jane is one of our appraisers of art objects and jewelry. Paul Burch, ATS is a Texas licensed auctioneer and IT specialist. During an auction Paul is usually involved with keeping all the computers operating as they should. Paul is also the one who set up and runs the WorldCrest Auctions online store. Paul holds the ATS designation. Cheri Boots Sutton is a Texas, Missouri, Illinois, and Florida licensed auctioneer.

We have begun setting up auctions for American Legion Organizations, V.F.W. and Tea Parties. All of our auctions have an online aspect. To date we have never had a disputed transaction.
