Around 50 people turned up for this auction which was situated in a nice quiet pocket of Prahran despite being close to many amenities. It was this aspect and the land content of the property that formed the major part of Phillip Kingston's preamble and was probably the main reason why no vendor bids were needed. The auction started off with a strong confident bid of $1,600,000 from an agent and it didn't take long for two more bidders to join in. Aided by the master of the tongue, Mr Kingston was in exemplary form using tantalising comments to push the bidders along. The methods proved useful as the property was knocked down at $2,050,000 which provided a fitting end to a good auction.
Craig knew that we had the deal team to make this decision. . Dear Kris and Mal,
I am in utter amazement at the manner in which your team executed this process. Brenda and I keep going over the boardroom auction experience and your every move was calculated and definitive. That final $10k just blew the other bidder out of the water.
I just looked at you and nodded and the next thing we had it! The support given by you ...
