I’m Yve Rojas and I have committed myself to being a dynamic Public Speaker, Auctioneer, and Emcee. I’ve worked incredibly hard to hone a striking stage presence and bold performance that truly fosters exceptional event experiences.
After a significant career as an actress, I felt the stir to begin pursuing a new path as an auctioneer professional. I’ve always loved speaking and engaging with crowds, and as an auctioneer I could do that while uniquely infusing the auction experience with my fire and strong voice. As I dove in, I discovered how much I loved it and how natural of a fit it was for me. Since then, I’ve focused on building a thriving business and this has resulted in growing into a award-winning auctioneer.
I now get the opportunity to tie together my passion for interacting with people, travel and presentations with auctioneering. Add in my natural stage presence, and the combination has made me a sought after addition for organizations throughout the country.
The unexpected reinvention of actress to auctioneer came from following my own advice of, “the best adventure is the self-directed one.” This included the incredible opportunity to participate on CBS’s Survivor Nicaragua. Now it has led me to be a pioneer in a profession where only 8% are women, and less than .05% are multi-ethnic.
I specialize in the philosophy of how, when, and why people commit to action at charitable events, whereas in everyday life this level of relational trust is usually built over time. I also give my events an enormous advantage with behind the scenes direction that helps plan for the most fruitful outcome. It is so important to me to work hard to exceed an organization’s goals and speaking needs by being an engaging, enchanting, and motivating presenter.
It is an honor and a privilege to be a passionate and knowledgeable speaking ambassador for my clients.
Speaking and Benefit Auctions are my passion. My pledge to serve is demonstrated through the enormous range of audiences and events I lead, totaling over 250 each year. In addition to being a devoted mother of two teenage daughters, I am a Professional Speaker, Specialty Auctioneer, Professional Ringman at ADESA Kansas City, and Host of the NIADA TV Automotive Industry News Broadcast.
I graduated from World Wide College of Auctioneering and received a designation as Colonel after receiving both a general diploma and a secondary diploma in bilingual auctioneering. I am a member of the NAA (National Auctioneers Association), and hold the designation of Benefit Auctioneer Specialist. I am also a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and The American Federation Of Television And Radio Artists (AFTRA), A Board of Director at the Unicorn Theatre, and received a Bachelor Of Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
