Welcome to the Home of the 2011 Wisconsin State Champion Auctioneer and 2011 Ringman Champion


Believe in Auctions was extremely professional and efficient.  Tim and Heidi Miller were AWESOME!  They came prepared with an objective to beat our financial goal and put me at ease from the very beginning.  Their high energy, organization and expertise in strategically placing the live auction items in the best possible order earned the Boy Scouts of America $15,000 on only 6 items! I would highly recommend Believe in Auctions for any fundraising event.

Connie Bielinski, Assistant Executive Director – Potawatomi Area Council, Boy Scouts of America

“I believe this was one of the most successful auctions we have had. Tim, there is a very simple reason that you are the State Champion Auctioneer and Ringman Champion – it is because you ARE the best. Thanks again for all you do. It’s because of people like yourselves that we can make a difference in the lives of the Arrowhead graduating seniors.”

Mike Ziegler, Quad/Graphics

“Tim and Heidi really contributed to the success of the United Way in Waukesha County live auction. The enthusiasm that Tim can bring to a crowd is certainly contagious. Tim was truly the champion at the “Champions in Giving” event. ”

Michelle DuBord (Schick), United Way in Waukesha County

“The event went beyond everyone’s expectations and Believe in Auction was a tremendous piece to our success. We thank you for the effort and advice you offered along the way.

We were fortunate enough to have Tim and Heidi at our fundraising event, and what a difference it made over the previous year! They had the attention of the crowd, were able to get bids that had previously been unattainable for us, and added such a professional touch to the event. Tim had incredible energy, and we were amazed at how he worked the crowd and got bidders caught up in the action! We could not recommend them more strongly for ANY fundraising function! Let me know if you need something else from me. Thank you SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!

Karen Sparapani, Executive Director – Elmbrook Humane Society

I’ve received many emails, phone calls and comments on the exceptional and entertaining job you did! Consider yourself booked for the first Saturday in March next year!

“I attended a Notre Dame Middle School event last night at which Tim Miller was the auctioneer.  He did an excellent job and really go the attendees into bidding.  If you need an auctioneer for any of your events, Tim would be a great choice”

John Splude , Executive Chairman HK Systems, Inc.

” Tim, When you agreed to help at the Kris Luth fund raiser, you truly helped out a wonderful person and a great family. You and the other professional auctioneers Carol Miller, Harold and Marilyn Betthauser, and Bob Hagemann made the evening a great success. The high energy and genuine caring you brought with you that night was fantastic. Kris was so touched by the entire event and it brought her so much joy. Thanks to you folks, a tremendous amount of money was raised to help with her medical expenses. I have been involved in many auctions and I would say your group has been the best I have seen to date. Again, thank you all so much. If anyone needs an auctioneer I will strongly recommend you. If you need a reference, I would be happy to be called anytime.”

Tony LaMacchia

A huge thank you from the Waukesha Family YMCA staff, volunteers and donors for your outstanding work at our benefit golf outing and auction. Your services are truly professional and entertaining and after talking with numerous attendees after the event everyone enjoyed the auction. We look forward to working with you next year.”

Chris Becker, Waukesha Family YMCA

Thank you for all you did to ensure we had a successful live auction at our annual fundraiser, The Excalibur. Your high energy and humor were entertaining, yet you quickly adapted to the fund-a-need portion of the auction which required more sensitivity to raise funds for our cadets. We raised the most dollars ever for our fund-a-need project—45% more than the previous record. Cindy and I look forward to working with the Believe in Auctions team next year. We’ve already started planning for the event. ”

Rachel Golla, Director of Development – St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy

Tim really turned on the crowd for our Live Auction this year! Everyone was impressed with his energy and the results he was able to achieve. He and his staff are well seasoned and highly professional, great with the pre-planning and post event follow-up. We signed him up on the spot for our next event!”

Marcia Gjertson, Heart Ball Director – American Heart Association, Midwest Affiliate

“As you know the packing and moving process was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do in my life. After living in the house for 38 years and not discarding much, there was a lot to do. I was drained emotionally, physically and mentally. Thanks to you and Believe in Auctions it was done and right on time. The whole process was great. Not only did we have the support of you Tim and Heidi, but you gave us the support of Jeff who helped me get the house a little more marketable. Jeff spent nearly so much time with me prior to the auction, that I thought he was part of the family. The auction in September went better than I expected. The closing went very well. We were satisfied with the whole process, thanks to you. I am very glad we decided to go this route. (We really liked the gift basket, it was perfect for our drive to Florida.) Good Job! Take care and God bless you.”

Virginia Nairne, a Believe In Auctions home seller

Our Auction was a big success and huge part of that accomplishment was due to your expert auctioneering. We thank you so much for the fabulous job you did for us Our heart-felt thanks for making the evening so exciting and a lot of fun.”

I would like to thank you for the GREAT job you do for Oak Creek Ducks Unlimited at their banquets at Muskego Lakes Country Club. You helped make 2009 a record setting year for their chapter.”

Tim’s engaging and appreciative style as an auctioneer made a positive difference in our event’s success – he was both entertaining and effective in moving the auction along, and made this part of our event fun for our attendees.”

First let me start off by saying WOW! What a great job you all did to make New Berlin WWA history.”

Give yourselves a Big “AT a Boy” or “Girl” for a job done well, my personal thanks for all your hard work making this the best banquet ever.”

Bill Sallwasser, WWA New Berlin Chapter Inc.

Tim Miller is “Mr. Awesome” in every way! The energy and creativeness that he brings to our auctions is what makes the event such a success. Tim turns our events into fun filled evenings and everyone leaves with a smile on their face! Thanks Tim for helping us address the needs of persons experiencing homelessness in Waukesha County!”

Bernie Juno, Executive Director, Hebron House of Hospitality

As the owner of a large banquet facility that hosts many fund raising events each year, I suggest Tim Miller to each and every one of them. My customer satisfaction is my number one priority and by suggesting Tim to these events helps to ensure that success. Tim helps my events raise more funds than ever before in a fun and entertaining fashion which in turn helps to make my customers happy. Thank You”

Chris Krause, Muskego Lakes Country Club

Tim Miller of Believe In Auctions was wildly entertaining as he hosted our Merton School technology fundraiser! His energy is contagious and gets the whole room rock’n. I am convinced that our auction donation totals for the last two years were double due to Tim’s auctioneer tactics and his unusual way of engaging the audience.”

Kathy Panaro Merton School Golf, Dinner & Auction Fundraiser Chairperson

Thanks for all of your efforts last night. I felt that the energy & style you offer is a highlight of our event. When we select a date and time for next year, we will be sure to contact you first to insure your availability. We appreciate your time & talents. ”
