Self-storage industry expert Tom Litton, who specializes in facility marketing and management, graduated last month from the World Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa.
Litton successfully completed a course of instruction that covers all phases of auctioneering and is taught by 18 professional instructors, many of whom are world auctioneering champions. He received training in real estate, automobile, farm, antique, charity, fundraising and specialty auctions, as well as schooling in the areas of auction law, vocal control, auction chant, bid calling, business management, auction marketing and auction networking.
Established in 1933, the World Wide College of Auctioneering has trained more than 35,000 auctioneers worldwide. The school has graduated more champion auctioneers than any other.
Litton began his career in the self-storage industry during its infancy and has managed more than 150 self-storage facilities in 11 states. Based in Lodi, Calif., he currently fee manages and consults throughout Australia, Canada, England, France and the United States through his company, Litton Property Management. He also runs Storage Auction Pros, which provides professional auction services for self-storage operators.
A regular speaker at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo, Litton will present his popular “Marketing and Sales Boot Camp” as well as an additional educational seminar as part of the ISS Expo in New Orleans, Sept. 29-Oct. 1.
