REIQ Journal : March 2010
with Phil Parker Chief Auctioneer, Ray White Corporate A Q& The Journal Q You are a multiple REIQ award winner, a runner-up in the Australasian Auctioneering Championships in 1999 and 2001, and currently, the chief auctioneer at Ray White Corporate, you must be doing something right. What are the secrets to your success? A Firstly, you need to nd something you enjoy doing. It's like anything; if you don't enjoy doing it, you shouldn't do it. Be passionate about what you do. The more passionate you are about something, the better you should become at it. And the more you enjoy it, the more fun you have - and that's really important. You need to strive to be as good as you can possibly be. Someone once said to me, "while you are green, you're growing... when you're ripe - you rot." I've never forgotten that. I'm always looking to learn something new - there's always something to learn. I also try and keep things as simple as possible. Otherwise things become over- complicated. Find something you're passionate about -andthengoashardasyoucantobeas good as you can. In 1998 when Phil Parker was presented with his rst REIQ Auctioneer of the Year award, he had a goal in mind. He wanted potential buyers to go away from his auctions saying "that was the best auction I've been to" and "I'd de nitely use this auction system for selling my property." Phil Parker, Chair of the Auctioneering Chapter with the REIQ, has the same goal today. REIQ Journal March 2010
