Frequently Asked Questions
What makes a good auctioneer?
A good auctioneer is someone that generally has a passion for real estate and property, feels comfortable with public speaking (the more confident you are in your own voice, the better!), and is able to remain calm under pressure or stressful situations.
Most auctioneers will have a background in real estate, sales, or public speaking. However, that’s not to say that these are prerequisites for the real estate auctioneer licence in QLD. For others, they may be genuinely interested in the auction process, have good communication skills, and love the excitement that comes with conducting an auction sale.
