    I recently purchased a property at auction. Willing to pay $30K more than what I actually paid at the auction.

    The sellers were not interested in a negotiation prior to auction. A good agent would have asked me my best price.

    Mike Wallace,

    You got me a bucket load of downsize $ ten years ago. Been travelling on the sale price achieved versus our original buy price ever since.

    thanks Neil & Team

    Good for you NJ call these people out, generally speaking I always find it odd that they can represent the buyer and the seller and on occasions pull the line the market says its worth less after they have you signed up. who do they represent first? they have 3 choices the Seller The Buyer and the Agent (not referring to anyone in particular as i do not know the guys you are talking about.

    I have been brilliantly assisted and advised by Jenmans on four sales/ purchases over recent years.
    I have also read Neil’s books which opened my eyes to the unethical tactics and incompetence of so many agents.
    Not only were my stress levels low but I benefited greatly financially.
    Keep up the great work Neil. Your 18 year old son can be more than proud of his Dad

    Dear Neil
    Honesty and high integrity was your message
    I am now retired but I first started in Real Estate. 27 years S A I did Neil Jenman Training immediately, as I did not know where to start as I was a successful Interior Designer. You walked your talk..
    I loved the way we had training in each state monthly and you were always available if we had any queries. Honesty , was instilled in us. Our company had work ethics and we guaranteed our clients and iwe also had a written promise to Vendors that they could cancelled our Agency Agreement within 24 hrs if they were not happy with our service. It never happened.
    The company I worked for was of highly ethical and we were very successful
    I have had my own personal assistances since and they also were trained In the Jenman way and all were successful .
    Thank you for caring about Vendors and your complete honesty in Real Estate
    Kind Regards Raelene

    Your son will be able to see beyond the rubbish that these agents throw at you and he will know that the morals and values you abide by are far higher than those idiots.

    Keep up the exceptional work!

    Your posts are better than the therapy I need for the traumatic real estate encounters I’ve had (I’m one of the 91% of people who find real estate agents untrustworthy!). Moving overseas so will need to sell 3 properties soon and will be contacting you to help me with this. Interestingly both agents you mentioned are in my locality. (Brisbane Northside). Thanks for shining the light at the end of the tunnel. Regards, K

    Neil has pointed out a zillion times that an upwards auction results in a price that that is slightly above the price the second highest bidder would have been prepared to pay.

    Apparently 1 zillion times isn’t enough, because agents still dispute what is self evident.

    The only kind of auction which would result in the highest possible price is an auction where the auctioneer calls out prices GOING DOWNWARDS and the first person to bid wins. The person who would have paid the second highest price never gets to bid. This is guaranteed to get the maximum prices from the person who would have paid the most. But we don’t have that kind of auction in Australia, so a good agent needs to do some work and negotiate.

    Nothing “thrivelous” about pointing that out, whatever “thrivelous” means.

    I’ve used Jenman’s services in identifying a suitable agent twice, and was happy with the private treaty negotiated process and outcome on both occasions.

    Neil, many thanks for your written articles in Which I find most entertaining especially the experience of BR and 100K wager which seems to send them packing as to the great term “ put up or shut up!!”
    By the way Neil, my first name is spelt with an “ i “ for truth! and not “ Y “ for the truth! Fortunately!
    Keep up the good work Neil.
    Kind regards
