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.

Phil is biased, he likes property!… He is often asked what is happening with the market? The response is “which market?, Residential, Commercial, Retail, Rural, or Industrial. Oh, it’s Residential… so is it large family homes, small homes, units, apartments, high rise or low rise or then is Melbourne, Geelong Sydney or Perth..” The fact is that there are many markets and they all perform differently at any one time. You need to do your homework and get the right advice for your situation.
The down turn in the global financial situation has opened up a huge opportunity in acquiring US residential property. In 2010, Phil went on a study tour to investigate the situation. The findings were very interesting, it is not without it’s issues and there are many pitfalls to be avoided. Upon his return a fund was established, money raised and several properties were purchased in the name of the fund. He has since returned back to the US to view the properties and to search for new avenues. ” We are very fortunate to have a great team on the ground in the US. This ensures that we avoid the all too common complaints well publicised in relation for overseas purchases of US property.
