Justin is top auctioneer of the year, again
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.
