Property manager wins Yanco NAC

12 May 2017

A property manager won the Yanco Novice Auctioneers Competition (NAC) heat in her first-ever auction after only a few hours of practice.

Rachal Broadbent is currently a property manager at Glenn Preston Real Estate in Leeton and has worked in real estate on and off for 18 years.

She competed against three other competitors in the fourth REINSW NAC heat on Wednesday 10th May 2017, which helped raise nearly $4,000 for the McGrath Foundation.

Rachal explained: “I had never done auctioneering before, although I had always thought about doing it. 

“I decided to enter after my boss asked me if I would after I had got back from holiday, less than a week before the NAC.

“I thought I would do it to get out of my comfort zone and only had time for a few hours of practise.

“I was very nervous on the night: however, I would advise anyone to give it a go. There are not many female auctioneers out there and it is something I would be interested in moving into with a bit more practice.”

Rachal 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.

There are six remaining heats which are being held at:

Heat five - Albury - 15 May 2017
Heat six - Wollongong - Thursday, 18 May 2017
Heat seven - Castle Hills - Thursday, 15 June 2017
Heat eight - Dee Why - Tuesday, 27 June 2017
Heat nine - Newcastle - Wednesday, 5 July 2017
Heat 10 - Balmain - Sydney - Thursday, 13 July 2017.
