It may well be a co­in­ci­dence that the lead­ing agents in Aus­tralia all have high-level auc­tion prac­tice. Some sage ad­vice for those aspiring to auc­tion:

“Those that ...want to be at that level, they need to go out and see what the best of the best are do­ing, shadow them, see how they’re run­ning their auc­tions, see how they’re run­ning their agen­cies. Look at the mar­ket­ing that they’re do­ing and quickly catch up, be­cause if you don’t you’re go­ing to get left be­hind.” WILL HAMP­SON

“In my ear­lier years of auc­tion­eer­ing, be­ing in a re­mote lo­ca­tion like Dar­win, the only way you learn is to in­vest in yourself by trav­el­ling and, for me, shad­ow­ing peo­ple and im­mers­ing yourself in the space.” KARL SE­CONDIS

“The num­ber one mis­take that I think auc­tion­eers make, and this is a holis­tic thing, is that it’s pretty easy to get to a medi­ocre level… and stop.” JUSTIN NICK­ER­SON
