2023 Rising Star: Grace Harrison


Grace Harrison, Auction.com’s marketing events director, is a business-minded leader working to get the industry together, problem-solve and ultimately help expand homeownership and stabilize neighborhoods. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Harrison had the challenging task of bringing our events back to pre-pandemic levels and keeping the industry tethered and thriving by reaching out and growing our virtual connections to clients, servicers and companies. Today, Auction.com’s annual Disposition Summit meeting has over 75% participation at pre-pandemic levels, a goal the company didn’t expect to meet so soon. 

Over the last year, Harrison has expertly navigated the challenge of keeping Auction.com front and center as a crucial industry sponsor by hosting more than 30 events in the last 12 months. Drawing people to these events progresses our industry, and Harrison plays a crucial role in amassing industry leaders to brainstorm and solve our industry challenges. Harrison also creates and fosters opportunities for Auction.com’s business development team to have industry-changing interactions with its clients. The company’s conferences, charity events, celebrations and sponsorship events, all directed by Harrison, have prompted critical industry conversations and decisions affecting our entire industry. 

What is one thing you would tell a younger version of yourself?

Never say no to an opportunity about something that interests you. I look back on my personal and professional life, and there are things I would have done differently just ten years ago had I had this advice. This stems from leaning into what you’re passionate about, which will provide the growth you never would have anticipated.
