Name: Bobby Ehlert
Title: Auctioneer
Married/Single: Married
Kids: Two

I was born in…

Monmouth, IL on Halloween under sunny skies and next to cornfields just east of the Mississippi

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Is the outdoor adventures! Mountain biking, hiking, camping, snowboarding…I love the adrenaline!

I’m listening to…

NPR constantly, blues night on Sundays

My family is…

My biggest priority and my biggest fans. My wife is super supportive of what I do and my kids are always making me laugh.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Sir Richard Branson…Looks like that guy has a ton of fun and helps so many people and travels the world!

One thing I cannot live without…

Is my droid phone or my flips flops. Probably should spend more time on my flip flops than my phone.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A radio DJ. I made tapes in my parents basement introducing songs and having contests. Funny how being an auctioneer is very similar to a DJ…but way more fun!

I’m inspired by…

All the non-profit groups I work with and the good that they do. They are the ones changing the world!

The one person who motivates me is…

My wife and kids (okay 3 people), I want to give them the life they deserve.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be..

The way people treat each other. Lets all get along and have some fun in the process…life is way to short to be angry all the time.

The perfect day would be…

Waking up early for a great cup of coffee, a clean set of waves at San Onofre Beach, a big breakfast with the family, mountain biking with sons, then a Hawaiian Plate lunch, then a nap and then walk with my wife to our favorite sushi bar and to bed early to do it again!

My first job was..

A car washer at our local auto auction that my folks worked at, and then ran the food service for our estate and farm auctions and then the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (Sweetest Job Ever!)

My favorite escape is…

On my mountain bike riding South Mountain at night by myself looking at the 6 million lights feeling completely alone. So relaxing. That and surfing at sunset in San Diego.

My life is…

Very busy, very exciting and very fulfilling. I rarely get a chance to sit still with auctions, kids and having fun. It’s great finally knowing what I want to do when I grow up:)

I’m currently working on…

Building the Call To Auction brand and raising awareness to the nonprofit world about the importance of using a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist at their fundraisers

Always…

Stay positive and work for what you want.

Never…

Say never!

Favorite Quote:

“Do or do not…there is no try” – Yoda

Biggest Dream…

Is to be a great dad to my sons and husband to my wife and to have a home in Lake Tahoe and one in San Diego to grow old in while we enjoy life!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Are annoying and negative posts on Facebook…yup, you just got unfriended.
