Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - Your Say -

SANDGATE-BASED Justin Nick­er­son has been crowned the best in Aus­tralia and New Zealand for a record-equalling back-to-back win of the

REIA Aus­tralasian Auc­tion­eer of the Year cham­pi­onship.

Mr Nick­er­son, who has won the REIQ ti­tle four times (2013, 2016, 2017, 2018), is the first Aus­tralian and only the third auc­tion­eer in his­tory to win back-to-back Aus­tralasian ti­tles.

“This com­pe­ti­tion is the pin­na­cle of our pro­fes­sion and it brings to­gether the elite auc­tion­eers, the best of the best, from all over Aus­tralia and New Zealand,” he said.

“To think I’ve won this is in­cred­i­ble, but to win back-to-back – well, that hasn’t re­ally sunk in yet.

“I’ve got a great team around me and this wouldn’t have hap­pened with­out their sup­port and tire­less work so I want to thank them for their com­mit­ment to this goal.”

The only other Queens­lan­der to have won the ti­tle is Ja­son An­drew, who now lives in New South Wales.

REIQ CEO An­to­nia Mer­corella con­grat­u­lated Mr Nick­er­son on his his­toric win.

“Justin has worked so hard for this win and it’s a tes­ta­ment to his at­ten­tion to de­tail, to his de­ter­mi­na­tion and to his amaz­ing skill,” she said.

“He re­ally started plan­ning for this day the very next day af­ter last year’s Aus­tralasian win. He’s fast be­com­ing a once-in-a-gen­er­a­tion auc­tion­eer,” she said.
