Christie King, CAI, AARE, has been elected to the Alabama Auctioneers Hall of Fame, making her the third member of the J.P. King family to receive the honor.
Her election was announced at the annual gathering of the Alabama Auctioneers Association in Gulf Shores. She joined ranks with her father, J.P. King III, and her brother, Craig King, in the Hall of Fame.
“I was both shocked and honored at my induction,” said Christie, who has served as president and chairperson of the organization.
Making the presentation was Craig King, who was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006. “Having Craig make the presentation made this honor even more special,” said Christie, who was Alabama Champion Auctioneer in 1995 and serves as a director of the National Auctioneers Association.
She is a licensed broker for J.P. King in nine states and conducts benefit auctions throughout the southeast to help raise funds for non-profit organizations.
