REIV President Trevor Booth congratulated Jeremy on his high degree of technical proficiency, professionalism and skill in conducting an entertaining auction.
“Victoria is the residential auction capital of Australia and, as a result, buyers and sellers expect not only an interesting auction but one that gets the best return possible for the owner.
“The winner, along with the finalists, exemplifies the high level of professional skill that is required to conduct an auction.
“I have high hopes for Jeremy Tyrrell, along with runner-up Harry Li from McDonald Real Estate (Springvale), as they compete to become the best auctioneer in Australia and New Zealand at the Australasian Real Estate Institutes’ Auctioneering Championship later this year.
“The last time a Victorian won the title was in 2005, when Justin Long of Marshall White was crowned winner.”
The Australasian Real Estate Institutes' Auctioneering Championship is being held in Adelaide from the 2nd until the 4th of October.
The REIV conducts a yearly competition to find the best novice, senior and commercial/industrial auctioneers in Victoria. The purpose of this competition is twofold: it helps estate agents to develop and improve their skills; and it allows the industry an opportunity to highlight the skills needed to conduct a successful auction – and achieve the highest return for the vendor.
Entrants are judged by some of Victoria’s most experienced auctioneers on their understanding of the laws and regulations that relate to property transactions, along with their ability to run the auction and present the property professionally.
This year’s finalists were:
• Michael Choi McDonald Real Estate (Aspendale Gardens)
• Harry Li McDonald Real Estate (Springvale)
• Jeremy Tyrrell Fletchers Real Estate
• Adrian Butera Compton Green
• Matthew Young Buxton (St Kilda)
