Jerry Collins, BAS

 

 I was born in Great Falls and have lived in Montana my whole life.  There was a few years I was serving in the US Army in Bosnia and Iraq but I have made Montana my home again.  I attended Montana State University and I am a graduate of the Western College of Auctioneering (2014) and the Western College of Auctioneering Advanced Course (2017). Collins Auction Service was established in 2014 and I am looking forward to providing you many years of auction services. I am a member of the National Auctioneers Association as well as the Montana Auctioneers Association. During the 2015 Montana Auctioneer Association convention in Lewistown Montana, I was voted the Rookie of the Year auctioneer. It was a great honor and look forward to serving the community for years to come.  I also attended the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist course in Las Vegas NV in December 2015 and officially earned that designation in March of 2016. Only 1% of the auctioneers in North America have obtained this nationally recognized designation. I have recently completed the coursework for the designation of Certified Estate Specialist. I must submit some more information and paperwork to be awarded this designation but that is all in the works for 2017. There are less than 400 Certified Estate Specialists in the world. For more information about the designations visit theNational Auctioneers Association Designations & Accreditation page. I love this industry and learn something every day.  When you have stopped wanting to learn more about your craft it is probably time to find another line of work.  I truly believe in the future of this company and the industry as a whole.  I have a blast at all auction sales.  I am also available for contract bid calling if you need another auctioneer for a sale you may have had set up.
