My guest today is Phillip Kingston. Phillip is the co-founder of one of the most successful real estate agencies in Australia, Gary Peer. I first became aware of Phillip about 15 years ago when I randomly encountered an auction he was running. And it was the most entertaining 20 minutes of my week. Phillip is hands down the best auctioneer I have ever seen – it’s like going to outdoor theatre. Over the years, Phillip has sold properties for me and I also recently bought one from him too.
I wanted to have Phillip on the show as he is one of the best salespeople I have ever met. We talk about his sales strategies quite a bit during this interview, and if you are planning on bidding at an auction at some time in the future, then we also get into the nitty gritty of how to give yourself the best chance of success.
