Don Martin, Martin Auctioneering Don Martin founded Martin Auctioneering after retiring in 2001. Shortly after 9/11, he decided it was time to do something more fulfilling with a greater sense of community service. This gave rise to Martin Auctioneering. Since then the company has raised millions of dollars annually for a wide variety of charities that Martin feels personally aligned with. After 33+ years of auctioneering, he is still going strong and remains passionate when asked about the charities he serves. Exclusively serving nonprofits is something he is particularly proud of. Though raised in New York he has lived in Colorado for over 27 years and considers it to be his adopted home state. He lives with the love of his life, Victoria and their trusted best friend, Bodi in Frederick, CO. When they’re not at work you will find them on the golf course or traveling around the country in their motor coach.
