The event was attended by both established and emerging stars of SA’s real estate scene, and included impartial judges from interstate.

Some of the strongest performances were from newcomer Anthony DeMarco and last year’s winner Bronte Manuel who as always, distinguished himself with his calm professionalism and impeccable manners.

According to one judge, a conservative rather than comic approach is most likely to succeed in the market and in this competition. No candidate inspired as much confidence with his conduct and numeracy skills as last year’s winner.

An unidentified established auctioneer was quoted as saying; “…(I don’t) expect my doctor to jump up and down when treating me, so auctioneers shouldn’t do that either.”

Edging out the likes of veteran competitor, AJ Colman, and reigning 2016 SA Life Golden Gavel winner Michael Fenn (who placed second), Bronte Manuel took home the top prize.

Other winners on the night, include the School students competition being run alongside the seniors competition, CEO Greg Troughton’s daughter, Emma Troughton.
