MARIETTA, Georgia (August 20, 2015) — Drew Dixon, the second-generation lead auctioneer for Marietta-based John Dixon & Associates, has become the fifth individual in the firm to be named to the Georgia Auctioneers Association (GAA) Hall of Fame.
“It’s a great honor to be inducted, and it was certainly a surprise,” said Dixon, who received the honor at the recent meeting of the GAA at Lake Blackshear. Other John Dixon & Associates personnel in the Georgia Hall of Fame include John Dixon, Joe Tarpley, Mike Loftin and Bob Tucker.
John Dixon and Joe Tarpley also are members of the National Auctioneers Association Hall of Fame.
John Dixon said the induction reflects the depth of experience and the respect earned by the company’s associates. “I’ve been asking around, and I don’t know of a firm anywhere that has five members in its state Hall of Fame. And certainly there’s nobody who comes close to it while also having two members of the national Hall of Fame. While this is a great honor, it’s also one that has been earned over many years of performance at the highest levels, as well as service to the profession,” said Dixon.
Drew said the recognition gives clients reason for confidence in the firm.
“Bankers, investors and individuals put a lot of trust in an auction company, and it makes a big difference to have a team that includes both young talent and seasoned professionals. Together, we’re able to see possibilities that none of us could see alone,” said Drew.
The company is currently lining up auctions for fall of 2015, including both portfolio sales and Multi-Seller auctions in which investors and individuals can sell as few as one or two properties. Individuals interested in additional information may visit www.johndixon.com or call 800-479-1763.
