“The competition is always fierce each year! As a past winner, I always feel a little bit of extra pressure, which helps me focus and perform at my absolute best. My peers motivate me and I love to watch them improve each year also, they push me to keep training and evolving.”

“Being able to witness these agents, who are the top of their game, kick into action and really showcase their abilities is a great experience,” said Mr Simpson.
“It makes me proud to be in real estate, seeing how much passion these agents have for their profession, how hard they work for their clients, and how much respect they have for each other.
“We look forward to seeing Luke and Andy compete in the Australasian Real Estate Institutes’ Auctioneering Championships and showcase the talent we house within our REIV community”.
