Why Auction?

The auction process is the most widely recognised method of selling real estate and has successfully stood the test of time. Auctions are a way of creating some urgency to act amongst buyers and also a good way of not committing yourself to a price in particular when your property has unique features that do not conform to or compare easily with recent sales data. It ensures you are not underselling your property and allows true market value to be determined over a condensed marketing period.

This is a highly specialised area and not all agents have the knowledge, training or on the job experience to manage a successful auction campaign. Here at Keyes & Co. Property, we have the benefit of having Townsville’s leading property auctioneer on staff and available to us at any time throughout the campaign to advise our agents on the best course of action to ensure your property maximises its chances of a successful sale before, during or after the auction. There is no substitute for experience and having someone with as much negotiation and auction experience as Damien on hand from the start of the process to the end is a massive advantage for not only our agents but also our buyers and sellers.

Damien is a sought after auctioneer across this region known for his ability to connect with people on the day in a relaxed yet very professional and entertaining way which more often than not ends in a great result for your property. Damien has called auctions as far north as Cardwell, west to Charters Towers and The Burdekin in the south and everywhere in between. Since coming onto the auction scene Damien has achieved some incredible results including one sale $250,000 in excess of the vendor’s reserve price. Damien holds the current under the hammer record for a residential sale in Townsville and is also the holder of several price records in suburbs around the city using his exciting brand of auctioneering.

The success of your auction depends primarily on the skill of your agent and also their close relationship with the auctioneer throughout the sales process. Here at Keyes & Co. Property we can offer you an agent/auctioneer team second to none in Townsville. For any auction related questions feel free to call Damien any time on 0418 781 421 or your preferred Keyes & Co. Property property agent.
