Students from across the state gathered at Pulteney Grammar School on Friday to receive advice on working in real estate.
The annual event, dubbed Action Idol, saw 19 mentors guide 24 students with auction tips and advice, extending their knowledge regarding the real estate industry and the art of auction.
Students mingled with other students, benchmarking their skills against each other, determining their strengths and weaknesses in action scripts and property backgrounding.
“Students now fully understand the unique learning experience they are having and the excitement leading to the heats will now start to grow,” said Lindsay Warner, Auction Idol organiser.
Golden Gavel Trustee, Sharon Gray also welcomed students with words of encouragement, displaying the Golden Gavel trophy and posing for a group photo with students.
Amongst the students and mentors, many teachers also attended and were able to see how their students compared statewide.
Only six students will continue on to complete on Golden Gavel day, after an elimination round on May 12, which will compete over 30 students against each other.
Just under 50 students receiving mentoring throughout the state, but not all were able to attend the event.
Auction Idol is marking its’ tenth years, receiving their largest attendance to date.
