ABOUT

RANDY HADDAWAY

CEO & FOUNDER

Have you ever felt your true calling in life? I’m blessed; it’s happened twice for me. When I was just a young young man at 18 years old, I realized my first calling: Serving as a Paratrooper in our US Army. Being a Paratrooper can’t last forever, so after my service I landed (safely) in the advertising industry. I enjoyed the experience, but I always wondered if I could find my second calling. Then it happened: Luxury Real Estate Auctions. I was born for it. The entire process from start to finish thrilled me, culminating in a Buyer being the winning bidder of some of the finest properties in the world. After just a couple weeks in the industry, I knew I’d be in luxury auctions forever. Many years later, I now get to work at the helm of an entire team of people who have also found the same true calling in life. We love luxury real estate auctions. And it shows in the way we work together, like a well-oiled machine… and just like my Paratrooper Team back in the Army. No matter how you join our Elite Auctions team, whether it be as a client or a team member, I’m confident you’ll become a fan of how we are innovating the luxury auction industry.

Once someone asked me: “So, you are in Luxury Real Estate Auctions? What do you do on a daily basis?”

I laughed on the inside and for a moment wondered if I should tell her of all we do to successfully auction a property. The travel and meetings, the strategizing and problem solving, the contracts and negotiations, the photos and videos, the casts and crews, the press and social media, the emails and Facetimes, the writing and websites, the long days and little sleep, the full schedule and sore feet, the meals and catering, the paying and pumping gas, the talking and texting, the rallying of local real estate agents, the new friends and laughter, the anticipation, the hugs and high-fives, the sad farewells… and much more.

It’s exhausting. But I love it. We all do.

So, with a smile I answered her, “I get to see some of the greatest places in the world, experience new exciting adventures, and meet amazing people. And, in the end, I help them win some of the best homes on the planet. And, when each auction is over, I get to return to my sweet family. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel truly blessed!

Meet The Team

If you met us all at a cocktail party, you’d be in for an eventful evening. You could mix with media execs, laugh with PR pros, and argue with our auctioneers. You could engage F-18 pilots, track with a racecar driver, and banter with ballroom dancer! You might even witness juggling, and magic tricks. We are room moms and Boyscout dads, coaches and referees, skydivers, horse-riders, and trainers of chimpanzees. Our strength is in our differences and unique talents. And when we put them all together, we’re the best at auctioning the world’s finest properties! Cheers!
