Ned has always thrived on a challenge and been driven to succeed, so after experiencing the enthralling dynamic of a property auction he was determined to give it a go himself! With his successful and enjoyable first year in real estate a solid foundation to build on, Ned embraced the opportunity to expand his scope of practice and learn the art of auctioneering. This is a role in which he has clearly flourished. Under the expert tutelage at Harcourts Grenadier, Ned has shown his aptitude after taking the stage and competing at not only the Harcourts National Young Auctioneer awards, but also the prestigious Real Estate Institute of New Zealand Rising Star awards. Ned enjoys the fast-paced nature of an auction, having to think on his feet, and engagement with the bidders. He also appreciates the opportunity to give back to the community – volunteering his services to numerous charity auctions and helping raise money for good causes. Ned has thoroughly enjoyed auctioneering thus far and looks forward to what his future career will bring – certainly the satisfaction of great results for his vendors, if his current success is anything to go by!
