You have conducted the auction at the Caulfield Cup Calcutta in an exemplary fashion for many years. You extract a pool of approx. $40,000 with very entertaining remarks and accurate auctioneering. In the opinion of most people at the Calcutta you are the finest auctioneer we have ever heard and there are many real estate and country people who attend the auction.

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.

Jeremy Tyrrell and Daniel O’Regan won the Fletchers Senior and Novice Competition respectively at the Clarion Convention Centre last night. CEO Bradley Brown in a communique to the company said ” For a 94 year old company it is not often we can say …..this is the first time we have done\’¦.., but last night at the Clarion we were able to say, Welcome to the Inaugural Fletchers Auction Competition!\’”It was a terrific night attended by about 45 from our group and hosted by Phil de Fegely, who along with Nina and Tracey V coordinated the evening.”
Jeremy saidafterwards, “As mentioned last night, I encourage anyone who aspires to be an auctioneer to get up and participate in these events. You will not find a better avenue to commence your career as an auctioneer (if starting out) or grow as an auctioneer if already out there doing it. I\‘m sure everyone who participated learnt a lot from the experience, as you are forced to focus on every aspect of your call.”
A big thank you to Phil for putting on a well run competition last night.Not an easy feat scripting bidding and making sure all runs smoothly!
