With over 10 years of experience in the real estate industry, Benjamin established Meridian Auction Services, LLC as an auction firm specializing exclusively in real estate auctions. As a former medical/legal interpreter and Summa Cum Laude Graduate of Longwood University with degrees in Political Science and Spanish, Benjamin determined that there is a pressing need for a multilingual auctioneer to adequately assist sellers and buyers from a diverse constituency. He proudly represented the Political Science Department of Longwood University as a member of the elite College Leaders Program of the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership at the University of Virginia. After intensive training, he confidently calls bids in English, Spanish, German, Pennsylvania Dutch, Russian and Arabic. He is also an independent auctioneer contractor holding auctioneer licenses in Virginia (3820), North Carolina (9762), Kentucky (RP3656), Pennsylvania (AU005807) and Indiana (AU 11200134). In his free time, he enjoys relic hunting, fishing and participating in numerous fundraising and civic events. Give him a call today to schedule a consultation and let his talents work for you!
