JT McWilliams


JT McWilliams is a second generation auctioneer. While working in the family auction business as a young boy, his auctioneer dad would cast the microphone in his hand when they came to an odd lot, and say “Sell it, John!”. Thus, a seed was planted.

However, that auction seed laid dormant within him, and in 2004 JT acquired his Auctioneer’s License.and has been conducting industrial, real estate, and benefit auctions every since.

JT is a bilingual auctioneer, and is fluent in Spanish. He earned a BS in Business Administration at Brigham Young University. He lives in Dacula, GA with his wife, Cynthia, and their 3 children.
