Your Marquam Auction Agency Auctioneer…
Christine DeCastro, Benefit Auctioneer and resident do-gooder with Marquam Auction Agency, is a vivacious go-getter committed to driving fundraising to entirely new levels for well deserving organizations. Proudly advancing diversity within the auction industry – where fewer than 16% of auctioneers are women and fewer than 5% are people of color or minorities – Christine shatters stereotypes by being BOTH. MAA is the first and ONLY fundraising auction agency in the NATION comprised of minorities with emphasis on serving minority and underrepresented groups.
A graduate of the World Wide College of Auctioneering, a member of the National Auctioneers Association and a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (only 1% of all auctioneers attain this coveted designation and of this 1%, only 3% are POCs!), Christine loves to have fun and ensures that donors do too! She holds a Political Science degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and has over fifteen years of sales and marketing experience.
An avid volunteer and philanthropist, she’s enthusiastic, razor sharp and one heckuva dancer! Christine believes every fundraising event should leave you with a happy heart knowing that, together, you did your part to elevate your favorite organization to its highest potential.
