Bid Fast and Last owners Jeff Patterson and Johan Graham want to rid the stigma of firearms and the confusion on what to do with them if finding one in an estate. Our presenters will fully guide the presentation attendees on how to identify certain types of firearms, the legality of firearms in California and out-of-state and a comprehensive firearms safety course to safely handle any firearms found an estate. Bid Fast and last would like to give a California Fire Safety card to all attendees as their sponsorship for the PFAC educational conference.

Growing up around the auctioneer lifestyle caused Johan, the middle of three daughters, to quickly catch the ‘auctioneer bug,’ as she and her father call it. A few hundred auctions and several short years later, Johan would graduate from the Western College of Auctioneering. Following in her father’s footsteps, she would go on to become a pioneer in women’s auctioneering. Since Johan’s graduation, she has been honored with countless awards and continues to lead the way in a field that is majority males. Hosting thousands of events alone, Johan has left her mark upon the auctioneering world. She was the runner up in the National Auto Auction Championships, International Auctioneer Champion Finalist, and California State Auctioneering Champion. She is the first Female ever to earn these great merits in most of the preceding categories. Johan is also the first female to ever auction in the Philippines. As a former PFAC speaker and certified firearm safety handler, she is enthusiastic to teach fiduciaries, attorneys, real estate agents, and anyone who will listen on how to overcome being intimidated by the world of firearms.
