Colliers in Christchurch have teamed up with Phil McGoldrick who is without question one of the country’s leading Auctioneers.

There is a significant opportunity for Christchurch vendors as buyers come to grips with a low interest rate environment and a lack of investment stock, which is causing increasing demand for commercial property with strong fundamentals. 

Phil’s passion derives from his total commitment to achieve the very best result for clients, while continuing to hone his skill as an auctioneer. Phil’s real value to vendors is his ability to negotiate and to find that little bit extra from buyers who are bidding for ownership.

Phil has been an active participant in auction competitions in both New Zealand and Australia and in 2009 he was awarded Australasia’s “Auctioneer of the Year”.

Richard Kerr joined the real estate industry in 2003. Beginning in Perth, Western Australia as a salesperson, he quickly grew and flourished in his chosen field. Whole auctions weren't common practise in Perth at that time, Richard became known as an “auction agent” from his success in conducting sales by auction. 

Inevitably his belief in the process resulted in him learning the craft of auctioneering and he has been recognised by the industry with numerous national awards throughout his career, which has affirmed his choice of specialisation.

Richard has called thousands of auctions in Perth and in Auckland in corporate roles, as well as within a boutique auction company.

“I’ve seen year after year, whether it's a good market or bad, big city or small town, that the auction process affords the sellers and the agents the best method possible for a splendid result."
