“Mike Holmes worked with Asset Liquidators, Inc. from September 1987 until February 1990. During his tenure with our company, Mike was an Auctioneer-Salesman. He was responsible for securing new auction business for our company, including personal property (machinery and equipment, inventories, filrniture, fixtures and office equipment) and real estate auctions. These duties included initial contacts with clients, estimating values, securing…auction contracts for both personal property and real properties, preparing advertising and promotions, set-up, cashiering, security, ring-man, showing properties prior to the auction and back-up bid calling.
I believe Mike Holmes has a complete and thorough understanding of the auction business both personal property of all types and real estate including commercial-retail, industrial, residential and land.
Mike is a hard worker who learns quickly and is very thorough and technically competent, he also exhibits very high moral charter. Mike physical handicap (artificial leg above the knee) did not interfere with his job performance, he completed all task assigned to him with utmost care, I would highly recommend Mike Holmes and his company to any client and or business associates.

“On a professional basis, Mike was the auctioneer in the sale of a home for Christ's Haven for Children, Inc., in 1992. Mr. Holmes was very thorough in evaluating and grouping the contents of the home. In conducting the auction of the contents, he effectively organized the sale, moved the bidders from area to area while maintaining a cordial, yet…professional relationship with the bidders, and effectively brought to a close the bids on each item/set of items. Mike was also very effective in the sale of the house itself. He was responsible for collecting and registering the payments of the various bidders. He had been very helpful to our staff in the entire organization of the sale, advertising, and other elements of a sale from start to finish. This led us to use him to action barbeque at our annual Homecoming for several years.
I feel Mr. Holmes to be of outstanding character from another association as well. He and his family have served as sponsors for children at Christ's Haven who go into their home for a weekend every month. References attested to their character before they began this work six and a half years ago. They have been outstanding in their work with our children.
Thus, I would highly recommend Mr. Holmes both as an auctioneer and as a person of high moral character.

“This letter is to recommend Mike Holmes to you. He worked for me as assistant manager of our Town East seasonal retail store in the fall of 1999. His responsibilities included opening the store five days a week, stocking, inventory management, customer service and sales.
Mike could always be counted on to do the job. I never had to Worry about…Whether the store would be open on tune or if things would be done properly on his shift. He Was meticulous about the details--samples Were always out and presented attractively, displays were full and appealing, catalogs and materials were in place--in short, everything was as we expected it to be. '
Mike has a friendly personality that resulted in sales. On the days that I was in the store, I noticed that he greeted every customer as they came in the door. He also encouraged them to try the samples. answered questions and even volunteered information about products, directing customers to look at something he thought he could sell to them. And he usually could! l enjoyed watching him in action.
But perhaps the best example of Mike’s conscientiousness came on a day just before Christmas when he Woke up sick. The store manager was GUI, of pocket that. morning, so he turned to me for help. Due to a mix—up with our answering service, I didn’t get the message that he was in bed with a virus until about 45 minutes before the store was to open, and I lived an hour’s drive from the store. Mike got out of bed and made it to the store in time to get it opened until I could get the situation handled. That's taking responsibility for a job!
Because the store was in Town East for the holiday period only, it was closed just after Christmas. However, Mike would be subject to rehire in my book any time!
