Rose Backs is a Professional Fundraising Auctioneer and Ambassador and the founder/owner of Elite Auction Inc. She holds both Idaho State Champion Auctioneer and Northwest Champion Auctioneer titles. She was the first woman to win the tri-state Northwest Auctioneer Championship. Rose is consistently recognized as one of the top women auctioneers in the nation and was awarded 1st Runner up in the International Auctioneering Championships. The IAC is the largest competition of its kind and is open to auctioneers throughout the world. In 2018 and 2019 she was the #1 ranked CarMax Auctioneer in the nation per customer service survey and the only auctioneer to earn the title in consecutive years.
Rose has experience in multiple auction arenas, wholesale auto auction, classic car auctions, real estate, farm equipment, commercial liquidation, and personal property. She found her passion belongs to non-profit and charitable organizations. Her combination of comfortable stage presence and a memorable smile allows any audience to connect with her. Rose is highly sought after and for many years traveled coast to coast to perform auction events. Now, with three children Rose focuses her attention and invests her skills in the Pacific Northwest.
The recent pandemic with canceled events and gatherings restricted presented several obstacles. Being willing to step out into the unknown was a key factor to surviving the months to follow. By not allowing fear to cripple her and enlisting the knowledge and support of talented professionals she was able to resurrect her business and transition a number of events to virtual or hybrid and continued the work of generating much-needed funds for area charities.
Mrs. Backs has intimate knowledge, understanding, and passion for the auction business she has served on the board of directors for both the Idaho Association of Professional Auctioneers and the Washington Auctioneers Association. Rose was the first woman to be elected President of the WAA. She is an industry speaker and educator as a specialist in charity auction events. In addition to being a professional auctioneer, Rose is also a public speaker, professional emcee, mother, wife, and ministry leader and serves on the Board of Directors of Lake City Bicycle Collective.
