Australasia’s Fast Talkers vie for the ultimate gavel

Federation Square in Melbourne will be the venue for the 2019 Australasian Real Estate Institutes’ Auctioneering Championships from 22-24 October 2019.

The champtionships will be co-hosted by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) and the Real Estate Institute of Tasmania (REIT). The annual competition showcases Australia and New Zealand’s best auctioneers and they are all ready to take up the challenge.

The Australasian Real Estate Institutes’ Auctioneering Championships is an annual event conducted jointly by the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) and the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ) representing the most skilled auctioneers that Australia and New Zealand have to offer.

The Auctioneering Championships were first held in 1991 between the Real Estate Institutes of Victoria and Tasmania to provide an opportunity to showcase their best auctioneers. The concept was subsequently adopted by all the State/Territory Real Estate Institutes (REIs) and the REINZ and has become the most prestigious event on the Australasian auctioneering calendar.

The winner and runner-up of the state/territory REI competitions and the winner and runner-up of the REINZ competition are eligible to compete in the Australasian Championships.

The heats and finals are open to the public, which gives everyone a chance to be involved in this high-profile event to be held at Federation Square, Melbourne. The heats commence on Wednesday 23 October 2019 at 8.30am.

The finals will be held on Thursday 24 October 2019 commencing at 1.30pm with the top five finalists battling it out for the coveted gavel. The winner will be announced at the REIV Awards for Excellence dinner to be held at Crown Towers, Southbank on Thursday evening, 24 October 2019.
