Joe has been working in real estate for over two years as a property manager at Bob Berry Real Estate and was inspired to have a go at auctioneering by his colleagues, Bob Berry and Graeme Board.
He explained: “I have got two great mentors in Bob and Graeme who are very good auctioneers, and watching them I thought it was interesting and wanted to give it a go.
“I was nervous beforehand but once I got into it I was enjoying what I was doing. I was shocked to win and I want to practise more before the final.
“My advice to anyone considering it is to just give it a crack and see how it goes because it is a lot of fun.”
Joe will now compete in the NAC State Final in Sydney where the overall winner scoops $1,000, gets to conduct the charity auction at the REINSW Women in Real Estate Conference, and receive two tickets to the REINSW Awards for Excellence dinner.
The Orana Division paid their thanks to long term sponsors Herron Todd White valuers.
