I first met Phil back in 2015, where we engaged his services to conduct Auctioneering training for my staff. It became evident that Phil was not only a natural but, the best auctioneer I had ever seen. I soon after engaged Phil to Auctioneer at a land subdivision where five lots were being offered for sale by auction in one day. Phil and I worked well together, his advice, direction before the auction made sure we were in a perfect position, come auction day. The auction was a huge success with $647,000 above the reserve prices achieved, a considerable crowd and thrilled vendors.
I only use Phil, and I will only ever use Phil for my auctions as I would never want to risk my vendor’s result by not using the best!

We were delighted with the result of the auction! Your expertise in encouraging a more dollars for each item ensured that maximum price was paid for many of the items on sale.

Iconic shed sells in Geelong
Saturday, 26 October 2019
Having been in the family for 3 generations the iconic shed at 77 Preston Street Geelong West went under the hammer on Friday. The shed was bought by the family to run their fruit and vegetable business from. The family also had close ties with the Geelong Football Club (Cliff Rankin captain/coached of the 1925 premiership side, several others family members played too). The team would gather at the shed and the late and great Graham ‘Polly’ Farmer practiced his hand passing through the open window of the car, right in front of the shed. The property is now a popular cafe (Box Office) run by Mark Stawicki. Mark is hopeful to continue on with the new owner. It’s always fun to auction property with some history!
