Greg Shattuck is not what you picture when you think of the typical Texas auctioneer.
There’s no hat, no shiny belt buckle, but don’t mistake the lack of accoutrement
for a lack of chops. Rather than just fitting in, Greg has been leading innovation
in the auction industry since 1987. He’s like the Hawaiian shirt in the closet full
of suits; refreshingly different from the status quo.
Most mornings, Greg can be found swimming laps in the cool, vibrant waters of Barton
Springs before most of the city has wiped the sleep from their eyes. He carries
that vigor with him back to the office where he wants to be the first and the best
at finding a solution before there’s even a problem. That’s the kind of thinking
that lead him to move beyond live auctions and partner with technology experts at
ProAce to launch SlapSale.com. The move to online auctions allows Shattuck and Associates
to reach exponentially more bidders which bring all the more revenue and exposure
to the consignors.
The business is all about relationships for Greg, because the people are what make
his job the best. Working closely with clients and getting to know their needs is
the only way to provide them with the kind of service they deserve and develop a
mutual trust that helps everyone stay ahead of the curve.
Brett Neal is the cowboy of the office. No, he’s not out driving dogies on the weekends,
but he can probably be found under a ten-gallon hat strumming a guitar. Brett’s
far from being all hat and no cattle, as he brings some serious auctioneering skills
to the SlapSale.com team. He is a graduate of the legendary Missouri Auction School
and has received training in all aspects of the auction business. His strong background
in sales and diverse experience as an auctioneer have made him a valuable addition
to Shattuck and Associates.
Brett comes to Austin from Bakersfield California, and his love for music of all
kinds is a big reason why he chose to relocate to the “Live Music Capital of the
World”. When he’s not auctioneering, Brett is a musician who has played clubs, gin
joints, and honkytonks from Bakersfield to Los Angeles. Now, his band The Daliens
can be found adding their classic country sounds to the Austin music landscape.
Whether he’s selling your stuff or serenading your two-step, you’ll be glad you’re
there to hear him.
Chris Oyler is the legs of the operation, traveling all over Texas to transform
warehouses from a random collection of surplus to organized lots ready to hit the
virtual auction block. Where some people would get road-weary, Chris relishes the
variety in his job. It allows him to meet lots of different people, and he wants
to get to know all of them. Chris grew up on a farm in Northwest Missouri, and is
no stranger to hard work. His jack-of-all-trades skillset helps him tackle any problem
that can arise out in the field. That and his experience working under the tutelage
of Greg and Jan have made him one of the best setup guys in the business.
Before moving to Austin, Chris worked as a photographer in Kansas City. He came
to Austin for a change of pace, and has been in love with the capital city ever
since. Now he just has to convince all of his friends that they too belong in Texas.
