Hi, I’m Christian Hamilton, the head of auctions for Harcourts Australia. In my position, I’m very fortunate that I get to work with a number of real estate agents all across the country, conducting auctions and working on their systems and processes.
In all of my travels, probably one of the best auction agents that I’ve ever had the privilege of working with would be Henry Wong, who works here at the Harcourts Beyond office. In fact, Henry is one of the most prolific auction agents that I’ve come across, and if you look at the last 20 sales that we’ve held in the Mansfield State High School catchment area, Henry and the team have sold 19 out of 20 under the hammer, either before or on the day of auction.
Now, certainly seeing a 95% clearance rate under the hammer is no mistake. This has obviously come down to all of the hard work and dedication that Henry and his team put into every single campaign, but also their unique marketing strategy that allows them to expose the property to more buyers within the marketplace through their multitude of different marketing mediums.
Henry and the team averaging just shy of eight registered bidders per auction. And what this means for a seller is that they’re creating more competition on auction day, and we know that competition is what drives a premium price, and that’s why Henry, as an auction agent, is achieving premium sale prices in the area.
So folks, if you’re looking for certainty of sale, you’re wanting to deal with an agent that can give you a 95% clearance rate on or before auction day and you’re wanting to achieve an absolute premium price in the marketplace through sheer competition, then you cannot look any further than Henry Wong and the team here at Harcourts Beyond.
