What do you like most about your job?
I know I am one of the fortunate ones who truly loves their career. Being born into the business, I suppose it could have gone either way. I’ve always felt the auction cycle is so exciting, and it’s a constantly changing and adapting landscape so there is no such thing as boredom. There is such a trust factor as well, so I’m extremely honored to do what I do.
Who or what inspires you?
I’d have to say my father, David. He was not from a family of means and built Maltz Auctions with tenacity, grit, and an amazing work ethic. Each day I wake up wanting to make him proud by continuing to grow the business.
If your life were made into a movie, what actor would you want to portray you?
Great question! I suppose I’d request Bradley Cooper, although no singing is necessary. :)
What social media platform do you use the most professionally?
Our base is most engaged on Facebook and we have in excess of 30,000 followers. We actively post, advertise, etc.
