Your Invitation To Attend REIV Senior Auctioneers’ Competition

 Next Tuesday 5 June are the heats for REIV Senior Auctioneer Competition, and I will be competing at approximately 3.30pm, against strong competition which includes Fletchers own Jeremy Tyrrell from our Balwyn North office!

If you’ve got the time and would like to see some top entertainment, come along.

206 Warrigal Road, Camberwell – what an amazing auction!

‘Around 120 people attended this cracking auction at 206 Warrigal Road in Camberwell.  Heated competition from five different bidders saw the price accelerate over $1,050,000 – eventual price undisclosed.  The house was in complete disrepair and did not add any value, therefore it proves large blocks of land (1,008 sqm) are still in high demand (mathematically it equates to more than $1,000 p/s/m!!).   Vendors are thrilled and brought in these sandwiches for Clara, Albert and our team to share – how lovely are they!  BTW … delicious.’  

Auctions as public entertainment? Read on……

This article in The Age’s “Sunday Life” magazine last weekend caught my attention and gave me a laugh.  I hope it does the same for you. 

I’m now wondering though if I need to join Actors Equity…my auction “performances” plus my property video tours plus my occasional TV “guest starring” roles…!

The happy vendors & purchasers

On a beautiful sunny Saturday, this gorgeous Californian Bungalow was auctioned before a substantial crowd of onlookers, selling for the fantastic price of $1,110,000.  For a closer look at this beautifully renovated property, go to 

As you can see by the happy faces in the photo, both vendors and purchasers were pleased with the final result – although our Hawthorn scarf wearing vendor probably wasn’t as pleased with his team’s final result against Collingwood the night before!

On a weekend which was a little underwhelming for auction results, this beautifully presented 3 bedroom home in an outstanding location was sold at auction under heavy competition from four bidders.

Here’s what the ecstatic vendors had to say:

“A big thank you to Melanie Jackson, Tim Heavyside and their team.  This was our first sale experience and we couldn’t be happier.  We were amazed by the amount of people who attended the open for inspections and the auction, which was all thanks to a very professional advertising campaign.  They were so supportive, caring and attentive to our needs.  I would highly recommend them for their personable professionalism, eagerness, optimism, honesty and integrity.” –  Joe & Jacqui
