Tip 1: Acquire a coach. I couldn’t do without one!
I needed all the help and support I could get when I started so I secured the services of Phil de Fégely. He’s an expert and has coached a couple of past winners. He really is first class at what he does.

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!

Yesterday was Dad’s funeral at the Point Lonsdale Bowling Club. A fitting tribute, a celebration of a wonderful life of someone who was an inspiration to us all. Charlie, Rob and I all spoke along with Rob Knowles his parliamentary colleague who he shared an office with whilst he was the member for Ballarat Province in the Victorian Parliament. Will de Fégely, his eldest grandson spoke on behalf of all his 10 grandchildren.
The tributes had it all and many people stayed on to share the memories.
Dad would have loved it!
