Liz Espey

  1. Why did you decide to attend World Wide College of Auctioneering?
    I wanted to continue in my family's footsteps, as well as tradition. I am currently a 5th generation auctioneer in my family. I wanted to continue in that legacy for another generation, and follow in my father, Steve Espey's footsteps, to become one of the best. I toyed with the idea to actually go to auctioneer school until I finally decided to go after talking it over with my Dad. My goal is to become a champion auctioneer and be among the best!
  2.  What one thing surprised you the most about auction school?
    The thing that surprised me the most would have to be how many emotions I felt when everyone was parting ways after graduation. I didn't think it would be that tear jerking, but it was!
  3. What state do you live in?
  4. How many auctions have you attended this past year?
    Too many to count!
  5. Tell us about your family.
    My Dad, Steve Espy, is a farmer, broker, auctioneer, and a cattleman. He has been my inspiration to follow in his footsteps and be the best that I can be. My Mother, Anita Younger, is also an auctioneer. I have a younger sister, Maria Espey, she is a Junior at Maryville High School.
  6. If you could choose to live anywhere in the world, where would you choose to live?
    If I had the opportunity to live anywhere in the world, I would most likely live south of where I currently live, just because it would be a little warmer.
  7. Tell us about one "aha" moment while attending auction school.
    My "aha" moment for me would have been to be practicing until 4 a.m. and then finally hearing my chant for the first time.
  8. Do you have a favorite quote that motivates you each day?
    "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."- Marc Anthony
  9. How many siblings do you have?
    I have one younger sister named Maria. She is 16 an a junior in high school at Maryville, Missouri.
  10. Do you have a favorite auction company, if so, which one and why?
    My favorite auction company would have to be Steve Espey Auctions and Realty, that's my Dad's auction company!
