Seeing is believing

If you ever wanted to sell your home by auction but you still are not sure - then head down to the Grand and see why you should....

Beginning tomorrow, the Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA) will be hosting its first ever REISA Auctioneering Championships.

This represents a new chapter of auctioneering competition in South Australia and one that will begin a prestigious legacy of recognising and rewarding local talent.

The REISA Auctioneering Championships are significant in that they serve as the only gateway for our top two auctioneers to compete in the Australasian Championships later this year.   New Zealand has held a strong grip on these Championships for the last few years and REISA is very keen to begin weakening their grasp.

REISA is proud to be able to provide an opportunity for South Australia’s finest to compete on the international stage.

REISA’s contestants are as follows:

  • Ben Clarence
  • AJ Colman
  • Dale Gray
  • Simon Jones
  • Bronte Manuel
  • Alexander Ouwens
  • Mark Sheppard
  • Jordan Varley
  • Lindsay Warner


REISA has a fantastic two days of events planned culminating in a Gala Presentation Dinner where our champion and runner up will be announced.
