Gearing up for the 2013 Australasian Auctioneering Championships

3 Jul 13

South Australian Golden Gavel winner Lindsay Warner and runner up Jarad Henry can definitely talk the talk but can they walk the walk in the Real Estate Institutes’ Australasian Auctioneering Championships being held in Perth September 2013?

REISA was proud to host the “Champs” in 2012 and has now officially handed over the gavel to REIWA. The gorgeous city of Perth will be the next host and they are working hard behind the scenes to surprise and delight the auction community.

Each year, 16 of the most skilled auctioneers across Australia and New Zealand compete in a fierce battle of words, numbers and showmanship. The auctioneering championships test an auctioneer’s skill level, ability to command a crowd, ability to control a bidding sequence and overall presentation and style.

2012 winner Daniel Coulson from New Zealand was cool, suave and humorous in delivery and critically on target with his numbers every time.

South Australian head judge Brett Roenfeldt was blown away by Daniel’s performance.

“To see Daniel excelling so early in his career at just 22, shows how incredibly focused, determined and professional he is.”

Greg Troughton, Chief Executive Officer of REISA, said that the Australasian Auctioneering Championships are important way to recognise those practitioners who go that extra mile to perfect their craft.

 “These championships are the pinnacle for auctioneers in Australia and New Zealand and it really demonstrates how professional real estate is,” he said.

“REISA and its membership wish both Lindsay and Jarad the very best of luck in September. It will be a fantastic experience for both of them.”

REIWA's annual Sales Conference is coinciding with the 2013 Australasian Auctioneering Championships. Delegates of the Championships are welcome to participate in the Conference. The Program of events is now available at;
