Kristine's Profile

Owner and Auction Consultant, Kristine, brings with her now more than eleven years of organizing fundraising auctions. Between 2000 and June of 2011, she has been involved in more than 27 charity auction events with her company, as well as working with Stokes Auction Group as an Onsite Consultant for their clients. As owner of her own company, The Auction Advantage, she has developed a support staff, which now enables her to work with many groups at once.

Kristine can help your non-profit organization in many ways. She often works with groups during the entire auction planning process, from day one through the event night, serving as personal coach, advisor, and facilitator. She also assists groups in planning, procuring and fundraising at any stage of the auction process. Kristine especially enjoys working with groups who are ready to move to a higher level of fundraising.

Kristine has experienced the fundraising challenge from the grass roots. Her first exposure to auctions came when she headed up an auction committee at her church that was raising money for children’s ministry. Her immediate success with that event, and enthusiasm for the auction process, led her to becoming a professional auction consultant.

Over the past eleven years, she has worked with many organizations, including Rainier Christian Schools, Rotary Club of Emerald City, and Snohomish County Legal Services.

“When working at an auction event, I want the guests to have a great time while giving money to the charitable cause. And I want the organizational leaders to be able to relax and enjoy their own auction event while our team makes sure everything runs smooth!”

Kristine lives in Kent with her husband, four children, and one granddaughter. She is active in fundraising within her community in her church, sports organizations, and schools.
