    Well said. Your response is polite and poetic, I clapped your response as I read it thinking that this subtle and kind response is probably the biggest impact to Mr Esze you could have delivered.

    Thx Neil for this story, what a disgusting agent this Tom Ezse is and wretched person. A blight on human kind.
    Good that you have exposed him and the nastiness of this sub human.

    Hi Neil,
    What a noble response.

    I have told so many people to avoid auctions but it falls on deaf ears. A work colleague recently sold her home at auction and her response was in a disappointed tone “we didn’t get what we wanted”. I always tell people to go to your website, hopefully they’ll listen next time.
    There is no lack of rudeness or disrespect these days, so sorry you and your family had to experience it.
    All the very best!

    I was talked into selling our family home by auction many years ago and it still eats at me how I was duped.
    The agent orchestrated the auction and advised us there was a number of interested parties but it turned out there was only one potential buyer who was interested in purchasing the home.
    The agent talked us into lowering our reserve price on the day and told us if we went “on the market” other buyers would come in. We were led by the agent, (thinking he was working in our best interest), but what happened was the one interested party put one more bid in and bought our house.
    We were stunned. It sold for hundreds of thousands under what it should have.
    The agent didn’t care and even said the buyer was prepared to pay a lot more.

    Since then I have seen a number of auctions conducted with similar outcomes. I’d caution anyone thinking of selling at auction not to or at least, be very firm on what you want for your property and never let an agent “put it on the market” prematurely at an auction.
    Never again will I auction a property or recommend to anyone else that they do so.

    “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

    – Arthur Schopenhauer, Philosopher

    The next stage is that your truth about auctions will become self-evident

    I read your articles with interest as they are considered, logical and practical.

    Clearly Neil, you are a gentleman and a scholar.
    What a pity this Esze clown didn’t have the intellect or dignity to make a fact based argument against your book….oh that’s right he probably can’t read, therefore didn’t read it and so his 1st line of defence is to turn on the abuse tap.
    If this is what makes a ‘successful auctioneer’ in WA, thank goodness we live elsewhere.
