Tip 1: Acquire a coach. I couldn’t do without one!
I needed all the help and support I could get when I started so I secured the services of Phil de Fégely. He’s an expert and has coached a couple of past winners. He really is first class at what he does.

Auction comes up trumps!
Wednesday, 16 October 2019
If there has been any doubt about whether a property should be auctioned, look no further than 3/22 Powlett Street, East Melbourne. Yes an apartment!
This older style, art deco style apartment which was auctioned by Jellis Craig’s, Nathan Waterson opened at 1.6m and saw four bidders take it to 2.65m.

With a state clearance rate of over 75% there were plenty of other examples where the final result was way above agent and vendor expectations. It shows that auction is doing its job.
