A Fun Interview with Sean Kastner
Today’s blog post is a bit different than the previous ones. Today I will be interviewing the President and one of the owners of Kastner Auctions, Sean Kastner.

During the interview, it was interesting watching Sean’s face as I asked him the questions. It was fun and some of the answers I received I did not expect as much. This interview definitely shows that Sean is not only a businessman who works hard for his business, he is also a very entertaining man who views life in general as a gift. He has a sense of humor and is pretty easy to get along with, which translates into the business culture found in Kastner Auctions.

A very interested blogger
Selling your estate assets can be hard, stressful, and time consuming. The process you use may look similar to this:
- You post your ads They usually vanish off the first page listing in minutes!
- You wait for people to show up. They don’t or they try to barter you “down the to the rock bottom price”
- When you let strangers in your house, YOU DON’T KNOW if they are going to rob you tomorrow night
- Even if you do make a deal, you haven’t escaped the hurdle of: Receiving phony cheques or being a victim of Paypal fraud
- Add up all the hours, you still haven’t made arrangements for pick-up or delivery >>> It becomes a burden, a risk, and very stressful for busy people like you. There’s no guarantee you will even sell your valuables.
What if I were to say there was an easier way to deal with selling your estate goods. What if I could guarantee you: All your assets would be sold for the best market price, your payment would arrive effortlessly and on-time. You wouldn’t have to take any of your precious days, and you could accomplish it all in 60 seconds after reading the rest of this article.

Auction in Edmonton Alberta Shows First Timers How To Get Great Deals
So you want to get huge deals at an auction? Well it is simple! Let us talk you through the process and the different ways on how to bid or register with us!
Bidding at Katsner’s Auctions
Firstly, there are three different ways to bid in the live auction which happens on Sunday at Kastner’s Auctions.
- Bid in person
- Bid online
- In person absentee bids
- Online absentee bids
Bidding in person
Let us talk about bidding in person during the auction. The first thing you will want to do is register, if you are not already in the system. We will discuss how to register a bit later on, lets continue on with the “how to bid”.
Once you’ve been registered, you will receive a “paddle number” (usually it is a four digit number). The items in the auction are catalogued (given a corresponding lot number) and placed in a numerical order. The auctioneer will then begin “calling” the auction, which means he will announce the item and begin to also announce the prices. These prices will increase based on paddle numbers being raised.
To bid, all you would need to do is simply raise your paddle number (the one you received when you registered) and your bid will be placed. When you’re bidding, it is important to understand the auctioneer and the amount he is stating while calling out the item. By bidding on that item, you are agreeing to pay that amount for the item.
Here’s some other great News to make your Live Experience even better:
- Everything is in Sequential order SO You can follow the program from a Free Catalogue that’s emailed to you
- We Have 2 Giant Screens to show you what is being auctioned
- There are 11 staff on floor to make sure you have a great experience
- There’s around 1000 items every Sunday From Vehicles-Diamonds-Tools-Furnishings-Bankruptcies-Police Seizures
Bidding online is an option to attend the auction without physically being at the auction. First, You pick your Auction, then you register online and then log in on the website for this weekends auction. Once you log into the website, there will be an option to click on a green “bid” button. When you click this button to bid on the items you want it’s the same as “raising your paddle” when you’re at the live auction in person.
In person absentee bidding
Now there is a third option to bid in the auction, and this can be used if you are unable to attend the live auction, and are unable to log in on the website to attend; it is called “in person absentee bids”. To do an in person absentee bid, come to Kastner’s Auctions, and fill out a form with the following information:
- Your paddle/bidder number
- The lot number
- The maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item
In order to get your bid in on the system, you need to have the form handed in and filled out at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the auction! When this form is in, your bid is then done on your behalf by the auctioneer or clerk. How cool right? This process continues until you either win, or the maximum amount is reached and passed by your opponent bidder.
Online absentee bidding
The last and final way to place bids is an online version of the in person absentee bidding. During the auction preview on the day before you are able to log in online at the website and leave “preview bids”. This basically means that instead of the auctioneer or clerk bidding on your behalf, the computer will then bid on your behalf. This is done until you won the item or maximum amount is reached and passed by another bidder. Please set a good maximum bid, your bid is encrypted on the system, I’d hate for you to lose something great for an extra $10 or $20.
How to Register with Katsner’s Auctions
To register with Kastner’s there are a couple of ways you can register with us, but keep in mind the following:
- Registering in person will allow you to attend the live auction and leave in person absentee bids
- Registering online will allow you to attend the online live auction and leave online absentee bids
Each # is specific or live bidding.
Live bidders pay 12.5% buyers premium
Internet bidders pay 17.5% buyers premium
REGISTERING IN PERSON
To register in person, it is really quite simple! You would just need to attend the auction (which is every Sunday) and see one of the clerks at the front desk. They will ask you for your ID/drivers license, and a credit card. If you do not have a credit card, don’t fret! You can still participate in the auction, just leave your Drivers License for initial registration! Once the registration is completed, you will get a paper with your paddle number (bidder number) and a catalog via email (for free) or you may purchase one at the front desk.
One thing you should consider is the terms of sale. Please ensure that you read them carefully, as you become responsible for paying for the items you bid on and win. It is a contract you had just signed!
To register online, you will need to go to http://bidlive.kauctions.ca/. There’s an internet only auction ready for you on Wednesdays to view and the MAIN EVENT gets uploaded by Friday Evening. Click on Create Account, and follow the instructions. This needs to only be done once and then you will be a permanent member of the online bidding. Please note, you will need a credit card and an email to complete the registration. Also ensure all the information is correct and filled in properly.
If you plan to participate in the auction online, it is a good idea to do the registration at least 24 hours before the start of the auction. This is because the approval process is not an instant one, and it does require some time to verify all the information you enter into the form.
Please also ensure that you read all the posted terms and conditions. Bidding online is the same as bidding in person, and by accepting the terms, you agree to pay for the items that you win in the auction.
Auction Terms & Conditions
Regardless if you register online or in person, there are some terms and conditions that every member of the auction needs to be aware of. Online bidders will have a chance to read the terms and conditions when they log in to bid or preview items. The members who register in person will receive a copy of the terms and conditions, which is included on the bidder/paddle number.
Previewing the Items
Before you bid on the items in the auction, Try and view the assets before hand. The preview is very important, and you can examine them the day before the sale which is generally from 9am to 6pm. It is a good idea to make notes in your catalog so you can remember exactly which items you want and an amount you are willing to pay for some awesome auction treasures.
During the preview is an opportunity for you to test any equipment (if it is possible) you are considering purchasing. The catalog is to be used as a guide only, and all bidders are expected to preview the item, alternatively if you are located in a different country, you can email us questions on any item from our help desk located at the lower right hand corner of www.kauctions.ca
All items are sold “as is” or “where is” regardless if you have previewed and inspected the item or not. Any damage we find, we try to list it.
If you cannot make it to the auction in person, please remember the other options that are available and listed above, and you can place your bids.
This is the fun part of the auction! There is, of course, an auctioneer who will sit from a central point in the facility, and there will be a few view screens in the auction stage area to assist bidders along. It will show the lot number, and a picture of the item.
The process begins with the auctioneer announcing the lot number and describe the item they are currently selling. The bidding will then start immediately after the description of the item, and it will be fast paced. If it is your first time at the auction, it is a good idea to arrive before the items you want are being auctioned so you can watch and get a feel of how the auction works.
The auctioneer will first suggest a starting price. If no one raises their paddle to bid, (s)he will lower the amount until someone bids on that amount.
“Who’ll give me one thousand dollars to start?”
To bid, all you would need to do is raise your paddle/bidder number, or click on the green “bid” button online. The auctioneer and the ring hands will recognize that you bid, and the auctioneer will then begin to ask for higher bids.
“I have eight hundred dollars, do I hear nine hundred?”
If someone decides they want to bid, (s)he will raise her paddle/bidder number. This will continue until no one else wants to bid any higher for that item.
“I have nineteen hundred dollars, who’ll give me nineteen-fifty? Going once, twice: SOLD! For nineteen hundred dollars to bidder number 268.”
A clerk will write down the winning amount and the bidder number. In the instance that there are several items with similar description and value, the announcer will state that there is a choice on the items. For example, lots 1, 2, 3, & 4 all are a boardroom chair.
“We are now offering 4 boardroom chairs. Let’s give choice on these four chairs”.
What this means is that the highest bidder will get a choice on the items when the auctioneer says “sold”. So if the bidder only wanted one item and already knows he wants only lot 4, he would tell the auctioneer and clerk that is the one he wants before the auctioneer begins selling the next item.
Once an item has been sold and clerked, the auction clerk and the auction office cannot make changes to lot assignments. Generally, the auctioneer will only give option and choice to the high bidder and will then “dish out” the remaining items in numerical order to the backup bidder and then to any other bidders who would like the remaining items at the highest bid price.
To pay for the items you have won there is a few options. One option is to come to the office and present the bidder/paddle number to the cashiers up at the front desk. We accept payments by Cash, Debit, Visa, or Mastercard. For the online auction, you have the option of paying online via your credit card, or you can come into the office to pay for the items personally with other methods.
Once the items you won are paid for you will get an invoice. With that invoice, you will go to the back and pick up your items!
You are responsible for the removal of your items. ALL ITEMS must be removed by Tuesday at 6PM. If you are unable to pick up the items, you may call and make other arrangements.
End of Auction! We hope you’ve had fun and found some great deals in the process!

“If there’s anything to admire its a tear drop of joy from angels. They are found perfectly preserved in what we refer to as diamonds” Sean Kastner 2015
Lets look at an article prepared just for you:
The Eternal Beauty Of A Diamond
If my quote is to etheric, then for the creationists, this may give the missing elements of why diamonds are diamonds and
The story of diamonds begins billions of years ago, beneath earth’s surface layer, under ultra-high pressures and intense heat. In fact, the oldest diamonds are more than 4 billion years old— as old as the planet itself ( or what science believes its age is)!. This is one of the a makes diamonds so sought after, as each one of these stones holds the secrets to our planet’s past.
In other words, owning a diamond is owning piece of creations mystery .
Diamonds are unique, rare Precious, and I want another one! 😉
- As mentioned earlier, conditions that support the formation of diamonds are pressure and heat: approximately 150 kilometers under the earth’s layer where the temperatures are a minimum of 1050 degrees Celsius. And these occurred in limited zones across the planet. ( Yes Canada ofcourse is blessed w/ these multi-faceted orbs)
- These brilliant crystals were formed and remained in the earth’s mantle until volcanic eruptions brought them to the earth’s surface.
- Once the magma, from the volcanic eruptions, that carried these dazzling gemstones cooled down, it took the shape of a carrot like pipes and formed into what is called as Kimberlite rocks. ( I snagged a picture of it, you can look at the top of this blog)
- And today, diamonds are primarily sourced from these kimberlites.
The origins, the long journey, their everlasting nature and the limited places that these stunning rocks are found is what makes diamonds so rare and expensive.
More efforts are required before these sparkling rocks can make it to you as a piece of exquisite jewellery:
- Cutting & polishing
- Jewellery Manufacturing
(Kastner Diamonds Ventures to establish relationships as close to the mining as possible so we off you them at Auction prices that blast retail of the crust and back into the Kimberlite 😉 )
Today, diamonds are are found only in these countries in the world, the majority (approximately 65%) being found in Africa:
- Democratic Republic of Congo
- South Africa
Diamonds have a universal appeal, irrespective of what part of the world or which culture one belongs to, a diamond has and will always represent pristine beauty. So what is about a diamond that makes it so beautiful:
Always Remember The Four Cs
- Cut- How a diamond is cut is responsible for how much light it reflects. The ideal cut is the round cut, also known as round brilliance, which has 58 facets, allowing for maximum reflection of light.
- Color- The perfect diamond is colourless however due to the chemical present in the diamonds most of them taken on different colours such as white, yellow, blue, pink, brown, black, orange and the rarest of them all- red.
- Clarity- The appearance of a diamond is affected by the presence of any foreign material in the diamond or cuts and blemishes. These inclusions and structural imperfections hence are responsible for a diamond’s clarity.
- Carat- The objective measure of a diamond is its weight. One carat = .2 grams or 200 milligrams, equal to 1/5 of a gram.
A perfect diamond is one which has no inclusions, is of round brilliance and 100 carats.
Here are some interesting Facts and Stats shared by the World Diamond Council
- Diamonds are one of the world’s, and specifically Africa’s, major natural resources. An estimated US$13 billion worth of rough diamonds are produced per year, of which approximately US$8.5 billion are from Africa (approximately 65%).
- Modern diamond mining started during the 1870s in South Africa, following the discovery of the Star of South Africa diamond (83.5 carats in size) on the banks of the Orange River (at the border of Namibia and South Africa) in 1869. A diamond rush followed and by 1888 the first working mines in the area were established. As prospecting increased, more diamonds were discovered in other southern African locations. The diamond industry has since expanded across southern Africa, making this the primary global location for diamond sources today.
- The diamond industry employs approximately ten million people around the world, both directly and indirectly, across a wide spectrum of roles from mining to retail.
- Global diamond jewellery sales continue to grow, increasing three-fold in the past 25 years, and are currently worth in excess of US$72 billion every year.
- USA represents the largest market (50%), followed by Japan (15%), Italy (5%), India (3%), China (2%), The Gulf (2%) and other countries (23%). According to independent research, diamond jewellery is the most highly sought-after category of luxury goods, both by women for themselves and by men for gifts.
- The value of diamond jewellery sold each year is approximately US$72 billion, which includes the cost of the diamonds, precious metals and other gems.
- The Kimberley Process is a certification system that prevents diamonds from an area of conflict entering the legitimate diamond supply chain. The Kimberley Process ensures that only rough diamonds accompanied by a government-issued certificate can be imported and exported, providing an assurance that the diamonds are from conflict free sources. Under this United Nations mandated system, only countries that are part of the Kimberley Process can import or export rough diamonds. Today, 74 countries are members of the Kimberley Process, ensuring that more than 99% of diamonds are from conflict free sources. Anyone who imports or exports rough diamonds between these countries without a Kimberley Process certificate is breaking the law.
- In addition to the Kimberley Process, the System of Warranties was developed by the World Diamond Council (WDC) to extend the Kimberley Process conflict free assurance to polished diamonds and provide a means by which consumers can be assured their diamonds are from conflict free sources. Its principal element is a declaration on the invoice accompanying every transaction (apart from the transaction directly to the consumer) of polished diamonds that declares the diamonds are ‘not involved in funding conflict and are in compliance with United Nations resolutions’. The System of Warranties provides assurance that diamonds are from conflict free sources all the way to the diamond jewellery retailer.
- As one of Africa’s major natural resources, diamonds are helping transform southern Africa and the lives of its people. In particular, Africans are using the revenue from diamonds to create wealth for themselves. The diamond trade contributes approximately US$8.5 billion a year to Africa and is helping the continent in four key ways:
- Financial: Diamonds provide a significant economic contribution to the countries in which they are found – for example diamonds represent 33% of the GDP of Botswana [approximately US$3.3 billion]
- Health: Diamonds play a significant role in helping tackle the HIV pandemic in southern Africa through the funding of counselling, testing, education, treatment programmes, clinics and hospices
- Education: Southern African countries are using the revenue from diamonds to help more children go to school for longer
- Employment: More than 38,000 people in southern Africa are employed by the diamond industry
Hope this Gives you an even greater Perspective on our Shimmering objects of DESIRE and why diamonds are the burning solid white fire of so many’s eyes 😉 *twinkle*
President Kastner Auctions/ Kastner Diamonds
Here’s your gateway to getting super Unique items and unbeatable Auction prices!
you just signed up for an uber exciting auction and I’m going to give you as much information as possible on it.
Since you are becoming a Kastner-auctionite, lets share with you some of our inner-circle details
- if you ever have a question (any time) call or text me (Sean Kastner) 780.719.0865
- if you are out of town Call: 1.888.447.0596 from 9-6 PM every day imaginable!

- if you live too far away, you can always sign-up for INTERNET Auctions sign-up here We ship anywhere in Canada!
- kay that’s enough far now, I don’t want to overwhelm you
This is partially what you can do with your assets and what to look for in an auction house, PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH!
I want you to apply this formula for everything when it comes to selling in the Auction. If you use it, you will increase your income drastically, here’s to our united success, if You do this, Me and my team will do the rest for you! 🙂
1. Make sure you have enough time to have it advertised, common things maybe auctioned off with a couple of days
notice BUT speciality items may need a few weeks. The more time you give the auction company to advertise your assets,
the better they will perform.
2. Make sure your merchandise is getting exposed to enough people! we Believe with the increase in technology that
you absolutely have to have a simulcast auction solution ( Live and internet bidding) this can greatly increase your net
results.3. Clean assets means a higher R.O.I. at auction. people trust cleaner items and will bid higher if the item look as thoughthey were respected.
4. If you have “tons” of multiples of the same style, do not fl ood the market, fi nd a way to get the auctioneer to limit
supply. if you sell 10 widgets a week for a few months at 800 dollars per widget, it is better than selling ALL your
widgets next weekend for 100 dollars each, remember the law of supply and demand.
5. If you are an expert on your products, spend time with the auctioneers to make sure they know the key selling features
of your assets, your knowledge could make a difference of 50% or more on auction value. Attention to these details is
very important for maximum profit.
If the auction you choose pre-catalogues, make sure you help with the description. the difference between a bowl with Asian markings & a Soup bowl from the The Wanli shipwreck from the Ming dynasty is an $800 difference Give us important details and we will enhance your products with providence and important details 6. Timing is key: Make sure that your auction timing make sense, Selling off a seasonal good in the wrong season may neta loss. Maximise on profit by timing out the greatest point of consumer demand if you can afford the time.
7. Make sure your items get maximum exposure. Having an auction advertised in the newspaper doesn’t cut it any more,
make sure your auctioneer advertises in multiple places, has a website that gets at least 3500 visits per week and has payperclick ad campaigns. it’s absolutely essential these days!
8. When in doubt check it out- See how their auctions function, visit their establishment next week and see what it looks
like DURING AN AUCTION!
9. Make sure the auction is bonded, call Services Alberta to find out. THIS IS CRUCIAL in determining if an auction
company is ethical or not.
10. Check out their rating with BBB except nothing less than an A rating. ( check out Kastner’s rating above)
11. See what fans are saying about them on facebook, (see Kastner’s reviews here) check their amount of fans. The more an auction spends on social marketing is a sign that they are adapting to changes in the current marketplace. You can also look at Google Ratings and Reviews too ( See Kastner’s Google Reviews )
12. Help with the marketing process, if you can create a list of all your assets fi rst, this saves time so an auction can spend
more time marketing your merchandise.
Hope this helps you! I also want to suggest, if you can’t attend a live auction check the auction out on their internet feed the next time they host a simulcast auction,

Sean Kastner & Team!
by now you’ve probably realized that The auction is a STRONG social community.You can save up to 70 percent on purchases and a huge amount of people make friends for life. Save copious amounts of cash on vehicles, renovations, home accessories, business supplies and other stuff you would get from a department store,
what you might not know is should you attend live or on the internet?
which one is better?
we’ve had hundreds of years to perfect live auctions and such a small time to start really crafting on-line auctions, let me help you with this decision:
if you need your raw senses stimulated you must attend a live auction at least for the first time, you can always attend live and access an auction from your smart phone later that day or even for the next auction
please attend live if you can the first time even if its for an hour, remember we send out a catalogue 2 days before the auction so you can get an idea when the items are selling
( eg. say we are selling the exact item you want and its item 146—- we sell items at approximately 100 lots per hour so that would be about an hour and a half into to auction. auction starts at 10 you are here at eleven and you have enough time to register and start to bid)
If you just want to watch an auction from your computer its a great experience especially when we provide multiple pictures, sound, video, and an easy to use platform that you can access from any portable device to bid
remember though in video, there is a 2 second delay on video ( but not bidding) obviously live auctions are hopefully zero percent 😉
remember that the average auction accounts for 30% business on internet and 70% live, there’s a reason why people bid live
If you like people come to a live event you will surely make friends!you usually save 5% on the auction premium, and live is way more exciting! you can get 360 degree views of the item always ( although we have live feeds of the items for internet)
Internet technology is much better since the creation of HTML 5 ( so long as you use Google Chrome or FireFox) you can bid on the beach, in an airport, leave absentee bids, view the auction during supper dates, in your pajamas or even while your on the road ( riding shotgun 😉 )
it comes down to preference, time and distance though, think about these and then choose how you would like to attend an auction:
if you are on the run and have little time or are a home-body register for online auction updates here
If you are looking for a real experience then try it live register for live auction updates here
See you live or virtually soon!
