Sach Oliver and the Bailey & Oliver Auction Team have helped raise over $3.6 million for nonprofit organizations in Northwest Arkansas. No small feat for a group of volunteers passionate about giving back to their community.
Led by auctioneer and Bailey & Oliver partner Sach Oliver, the Auction Team offers its talents and services to make a difference in the region. Sach did not follow the typical path to auctioneering. He had attended several social events in Northwest Arkansas and met Dick Trammel, who is well known for giving back to the community. They became acquainted and one day Dick called Sach on short notice and asked if he could fill in as charity auctioneer for an event. Sach had never done anything like this before and it was a step outside his comfort zone. Sach became hooked. So much so that Sach attended the Texas Auction Academy to learn how to be a real auctioneer!
The Auction Team members come from a variety of professional careers. The team currently includes a dentist, a high school principal, a radio station V.P., a real estate agent, an animal health sales rep, two attorneys, and a variety of other occupations.
Along with the outgoing and enthusiastic personalities of the Auction Team, they are known for their cowboy attire. The Auction Team arrives to events in cowboy boots, jeans, a long-sleeve white shirt, a dark jacket, and their signature cowboy hat; straw in summer and black felt in winter. They have become known as the Cowboy Auction Team.
