Compass Auctions & Real Estate recently announced that Lebanon auctioneer and Realtor Ray Hubner was named the 2015 Rookie Bid Calling Champion by the Tennessee Auctioneers Association during the organization's annual summer convention at the Inn at Opryland.
"It was an honor to compete among peers within the auction industry, and I feel so grateful to be surrounded by such outstanding talent and professionals," Hubner remarked.
A member since 2012, Hubner also serves on the board of directors for the state association. The Tennessee Association of Auctioneers, founded in 1958, serves to protect, promote and represent the interest of the auctioneering profession in Tennessee.
Hubner is a graduate of Nashville Auction School and, in 2016, he will earn his designation from the Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI), the most prestigious professional designation for auctioneers that emphasizes the importance of continued education, excellence and outstanding service.
An apprentice auctioneer with the Compass Auctions & Real Estate team, Hubner also holds his real estate license. He and his wife, Stephanie, lead the Wilson/Rutherford Division of Compass and serve their clients by providing several different avenues of sale for real property and other assets.
"Being a part of the Compass team of professionals, a team truly on the cutting edge of the auction and real estate industries, is a privilege and an amazing learning opportunity," Hubner said.
Compass Auctions and Real Estate will host its debut auction for the Wilson County area on Saturday, June 13 at 2033 Horn Springs Road, where Hubner and the Compass auction team will sell real estate and personal property beginning at 10 a.m. To learn more, visit www.soldoncompass.com.
