Share |

August 5, 2008 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Shawn Terrel, vice president of United Country Auction Services, has been elected to the National Auctioneer Association (NAA) Board of Directors. The election was held on Thursday, July 10, at the 59th International Auctioneers Conference and Show in Nashville, Tenn.

“We’re proud of Shawn and look forward to what he will contribute and accomplish with the NAA,” said Mike Jones, president of United Country Auction Services, past president and chairman of NAA and International Auctioneer Champion. “Shawn brings an extensive auctioneering background to the table, and I’m confident he’ll do an outstanding job serving the members of the NAA.”

Terrel is the past chairman and president of the Oklahoma State Auctioneers Association, and in 2007, he was named the Oklahoma Champion Auctioneer. In the last 10 years as an auction manager and associate broker, Terrel also has become one of the industry’s authorities on conducting simulcasts. He not only has participated in more than 1,400 live auctions, but he also has facilitated many of these auctions incorporating online simulcasts during the events.

In addition to his professional auctioneer designations, Accredited Auctioneer Real Estate (AARE) and Certified Auctioneers Institute (CAI), Terrel is also a licensed real estate broker in Oklahoma and Kansas.

United Country Real Estate, the nation’s only national real estate franchise system specializing in non-urban properties, launched United Country Auction Services in 2007 to address the rapidly expanding market for real estate and personal property auctions. Terrel joined United Country Auction Services in 2007, helping the new division grow exponentially. In the first 18 months, Terrel and Jones welcomed more than 75 veteran auctioneers as United Country franchisees across the country – almost triple the number anticipated.
