Car Specialist – North America
Konrad Trapler joined RM Sotheby’s as a Car Specialist in the fall of 2016.
A lifelong auto enthusiast, Konrad’s love of cars was seeded by his father, who exposed him to anything and everything automotive during his youth. Local car shows, exotic car dealerships, monster truck meets, and even demolition derbies were all places Konrad could be found on any given weekend. But above all else, it was the race cars competing at the local stock car short track that intrigued him most, and by age 14, Konrad was working with a pit crew of a local CASCAR team, traveling across Canada.
After completing the three-year Canadian automotive program at Georgian College, Konrad obtained at degree in International Business Marketing in Sydney, Australia, before moving to Hawaii where he worked retail for new vehicle dealerships, including Mercedes-Benz. After almost a decade abroad, he recently returned to his home country of Canada to pursue his passion for classic vehicles.
Konrad appreciates a broad variety of marques and eras, with a specialization in post-war Chryslers. In his spare time, he enjoys attending on- and off-road driving schools, traveling, and continuing to work on and enjoy vehicles with his father.
