The Kiwis have done it!

Andrew North of Harcourts Cooper & Co is the Australasian Auctioneering Champion for 2014.

It means the North Shore-based auctioneer has outperformed the very best auctioneers from across New Zealand and Australia, demonstrating the most outstanding talent at the competition held in Auckland by the Australasian Real Estate Institutes this week.

He and 15 other competitors first had to fight their way through regional battles, with two New Zealanders and representatives from each Australian state selected to compete at the Australasian Championships.

At the heats on Wednesday each of the 15 competitors was required to call the same complicated auction, devised to test their aptitude, attention to detail and ability to think on their feet.
