Phil and I have trained together over the past 6 years, at times intensely and others just the odd catch up to freshen up my skills. Either way, I always gain something from our sessions together.

After meeting Phil at the Australasian competition in 2011, I sought his help in preparing for the 2012 competitions and my auctions in general. With Phil’s coaching and assistance I won the REIWA auctioneer of the year and made the finals of the Australasian’s 2012.

Auction of Real Estate turns 180 years old
Thursday, 1 June 2017
180 years ago, the first land in Victoria was sold by public auction on June 1, 1837. Originally known as Port Phillip, 100 lots of land were sold in what is now known as the Melbourne CBD. The gross sale was £3,800 and the average sale price of a block was £35. Only one lot reneged (or cooled off) and the commission for the Auctioneer, Robert Hoddle, was £57 or 1.50% to read more on Hoddle go to: http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/hoddlerobert-2190
