Kiwi claims Australasia's best auctioneer title for 2018
After a tight competition, the Australasian Real Estate Institutes' Auctioneering Championship for 2018 was awarded to Andrew North of New Zealand. Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) President Malcolm Gunning said the event, hosted this year by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ), showcases the best talent auctioneering currently has to offer.
“The standard has lifted to another level again this year and I don't think there has ever been a harder test for our Aussie and Kiwi rivalry,” Mr Gunning said.
“This is the second time Andrew North has taken home the title of Australasian Real Estate Institutes' Auctioneering Champion, having won in 2014.”
Mr Gunning also paid tribute to the finalists, Bronte Manuel representing South Australia, Mitch Peereboom of Queensland, Alec Brown of the Australian Capital Territory, and John Bowring representing New Zealand, and the other competitors.
