Christchurch contestants took out 3 of the top 4 awards at the Real Estate Institute’s auctioneering competition in Auckland this week.
Ned Allison (Harcourts Grenadier) won the senior competition and Mark McGoldrick (Harcourts Canterbury, Ilam) was runner-up. They’ll represent New Zealand at the Australasian auctioneering championships in Adelaide in September.
In the “rising stars” competition for the Colin Brown Memorial Cup, Tim Snell (Harcourts Cooper & Co East Coast Bays, Auckland) won and Caleb Griffioen (Gold Real Estate, Christchurch Parklands) was runner up.
The annual championships drew 21 senior entries and 18 for the rising stars contest.
Real Estate Institute chief executive Bindi Norwell said the competition was wide open as the reigning champions didn’t enter.
