$5.62 Million ‘Under Hammer’ Result Shows Strength of Harcourts Mana-Kapiti Auctions

The public increasingly recognising the advantages of the auction method for all property types has been key to consistent auction success according to Harcourts Mana-Kapiti-Horowhenua Principal and Auctioneer, Mick Robbers.
