#1 NZ Auctioneer In National Auction Manager

New Zealand’s #1 Auctioneer In National Auction Manager’s Role
For Release: 12 October 2006

New Zealand’s Number 1 Auctioneer, Phil McGoldrick of Harcourts has recently moved into the role as Harcourts’ National Auction Manager.

One of the best known and highly regarded property auctioneers in the country, Mr McGoldrick earlier this year won the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand’s Auctioneers Competition. He then went on to represent the country at the recent Australasian Competition and for the first year in history for New Zealand, achieved a coveted spot in the final four.

Mr McGoldrick’s real estate career began in 1982 in Ashburton, progressing from sales person to Business Owner. Early in 1988 he was appointed CEO of a national real estate network, prior to joining Harcourts as a Business Development Manager for South Island offices in 1993. Over recent years, Mr McGoldrick has devoted a huge amount of his time to auctioneering and calls between eight and ten auctions a week, and is also a popular charity auctioneer for high profile fundraisers.

Commenting on the use of auctions to market property, Mr McGoldrick said, “My one lament about the industry is that we sell too little of our properties by auction. Our responsibility to our vendors is to sell their property for the very best price in a reasonable period of time. You can only guarantee you got the owner the best price by allowing every potential buyer the opportunity to compete for its ownership.”

His new role sees Mr McGoldrick responsible for the training of Harcourts auctioneers, the maintenance of their standards and compliance with regulations and codes. His predecessor, Andrew North, has moved into business ownership within the Harcourts Group.

CEO of Harcourts New Zealand, Bryan Thomson said, “Phil McGoldrick brings a wealth of knowledge to the role and we look forward to the ongoing positive impact he will have as part of our team. Very few individuals can combine knowledge and skills with an innate ability to transfer this knowledge in the manner Phil does.”
