Phil, you must take a great deal of the credit for all the compliments we have received. The auction made more than reserve on every item and I have heard nothing but praise for you ‘expertise’. Everyone at the function has said that the Gala was the ‘best yet’ and are already looking forward to next year.

So many people have emailed and phoned with glowing reports of the night and in particular have commented on how great the auction was and how entertaining you were.

Steve Abbott wins Auctioneer award at JC
Friday, 10 August 2012
Last night at the Jellis Craig annual awards night saw a change of format.Preceding the event saw the final of their Auctioneer Competition. 6 finalists in two classes competed for the trophy in a shortened format. Each competitor only had 7 minutes to perform.The Shining Stars was for auctioneers who have done 20 auctions or less and the All Stars for more than 20 auctions. The finalist for the Shining Stars were Gordon Hope, Lee Muddle and Hugh Trieu where we saw a tie, Gordon and Hugh couldn’t be separated and they shared the title.The All Star finalists were Peter Batrouney, Michael Hingston and Steven Abbott. A dashing display by all and Steve Abbott was declared the winner.
It was a fitting end to a program that had over thirty participants and fantastic entertainment to commence the awards night.
