Nick Arrington is a lifelong resident of the DC metro area. A 1976 graduate of Madison College and later The Mendenhall School of Auctioneering.
In the ’70’s Nick managed or owned several Equipment dealerships including several John Deere CP dealerships where his duties included organizing and participating in auctions which included trade-in, off-lease and repossessed equipment through various Auctioneers.
In the 80’s he concentrated his efforts on the commercial recovery and repossession of business assets of every type imaginable on behalf of regional lenders – typically involving “no-pay / slow-pay” leasing and financing situations. Unhappy with the results of contracted auctioneers, he attended The Mendenhall School Of Auctioneering in the ’80’s. Here he was one of only a handful of students in the history of the school to score a perfect score of 100 on the final exam. Shortly thereafter he obtained his Auctioneer’s license.
For almost 30 years he has served the general public, estates, legal and banking communities resolving a myriad of problems related to thousands of asset recovery situations.
Not all auctioneers are cut from the same cloth. Don’t take chances with a Real Estate Agent who has suddenly added the title “Auctioneer” on their business card — who couldn’t tell you the difference between a jack hammer and a jack-in-the-box — or an Elementary School Teacher who conducts one sale a month on the side.
