Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. Auctioneer David P. Whitley CAI CES recently joined fellow members of the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) in Washington, DC for the association’s annual Auction Action on Capitol Hill Day. This annual event brings industry leaders from across the nation to meet with members of Congress to educate them about the quarter-trillion dollar live-auction industry and discuss issues of concern to professional auctioneers.

Participants this year educated members of Congress about the current foreclosure crisis and the current system for disposing of foreclosed home. Contrary to popular belief, professional auctioneers do not manage the sales of foreclosed home at public auction and the reality is that the majority of foreclosure auctions fail, costing distressed homeowners their homes and equity, as well as costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars.

Whitley is a member of the National Auctioneers Association and the Colorado Auctioneers Association. He is the President and CEO of Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. and has been an active member in the auction industry for 23 years.

“I was honored to join my fellow auctioneers in Washington DC to discuss with members of Congress the foreclosure crisis impacting our country and educate them about the current system which is flawed, “ said Whitley. “ There is a better solution available for homeowners and America’s taxpayers when selling federally insured homes at foreclosure auctions and I am excited to be part of the discussion and potential solution.”
