Chow time at Julia’s. None of Julia’s customers ever go hungry at a Julia auction. A chef from a local restaurant keeps the table covered with an excellent diversity and selection of food. She makes a wicked New England “Chowdah”.

Mark Ford, Julia’s CEO and Jim’s assistant auctioneer, spent a good amount of time on the block.

Julia’s has great depth in their auctioneer department. Jim has been auctioneering for nearly 50 years, Mark Ford, CEO and Fred Olsen, COO both serve as back up auctioneers. Also serving as auctioneers are Mike Fredericks and Bill Gage, but here is a new auctioneer that takes the block, Scott Greeley who is the Head of the Shipping Department and recently received his auctioneer license and has already established himself as an up and coming auctioneer.

The phone was active throughout a good portion of the sale.

Jim Julia and Mark Ford work together as a team to entice one more bid.
