AUCTIONEER TRAINING

To many, the art of auctioneering is something akin to a mixture of theatre, mumbo jumbo and lightening fast mathematics.

 To Tony, it has been a way of life since he was a small boy and as a fourth generation auctioneer, with a burning desire to be amongst the best, he has seen and learned a lot.

 He has auctioneered in every State and Territory of Australia, in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia (where he conducted the first ever residential real estate auction) and the United States of America.

 This experience has been gained in as diverse areas as the arid areas of the Northern Territory auctioning horses to the Ballroom of Sydney's prestigious Regent Hotel auctioning multi-million dollar properties to dust blown station sheep yards in drought stricken central western New South Wales to the National Conference of the National Auctioneer's Association in San Diego, California.

 It is one thing to be an expert practitioner but another to be a top flight trainer and Tony is very proud that three of his "students" from his days as National Chief Auctioneer for the Ray White Group, have gone onto to win major State awards within the real estate auctioneering business.

 These are Phillip Parker (Queensland), Adrian Butera (Victoria) and John Moore (South Australia).The other, Malcolm Campbell, became the Chief Auctioneer for Ray White's Western Australian operation and is now a Principal of the Ray White Tamworth (NSW) franchise.

As a fun thing, we have downloaded this video that was filmed at the Ray White Centenary Conference on the Gold Coast in 2002. There is quite a story to it which Tony can tell if you ask - in the meantime sit back and enjoy- Tony is the second "fast" auctioneer and the last auctioneer, Sari Dewi from Ray White Indonesia, is a former student of the FAA!
