Auction Bidding

Auctions are a high-stakes environment where emotions can quickly cloud your better judgement.

Gain the unfair advantage with a buyer’s agent bidding for you.

Buying at auction in Canberra doesn’t have to be stressful. With an experienced buyer’s agent on your side, you’ll be confident and fully prepared for auction day.

Without doubt, your knowledge of the Canberra market and your expert handling of the auction took the emotion out of the purchase for us and kept us on track and within budget.

As a buyer’s agent, I’m in the marketplace every single day. It’s an environment that most buyers only step into momentarily and lack the necessary depth of experience in. Over many years and hundreds of purchases across Canberra for clients, I’ve refined my own system to make your purchase a smooth, stress-free one. Having your auction handled by an experienced Buyer’s Agent leaves you free to resume your already-packed schedule with the peace of mind that your purchase is being professionally managed from beginning to end.

The seller is represented by a professional, so why should you face them as an amateur?

The biggest mistake I see hopeful buyers make is trying to go it alone and figure it out as they go. Buyers don’t know what they don’t know, and by the time they figure that out it’s too late - the deal has been done. They are unaware of how the game is played in today’s market and end up overpaying. Buying a home is a large financial decision and going it alone leaves you exposed and unnecessarily overwhelmed during a fast-paced auction setting. What is meant to be a happy moment in your life can quickly turn to disappointment and frustration (and a few tears in there, too), and that’s not what buying a home should feel like.

We’d been wide-eyed and hopeful, but bringing Claire in made us practical, professional and a force to be reckoned with.

This service covers more than just the auction:

  • Initial discussions, obligation free. A chance to speak with me and see if I'm a good 'fit' for you;

  • Pricing analysis and reports on your property to guide you in making a well-informed decision;

  • Discussions and guidance on the best strategy for securing your home at the lowest price;

  • Negotiations prior to secure favourable terms of purchase for you;

  • The bidding itself: you'll have an accredited Buyer’s Agent bidding for you, giving you the advantage of experience across all auction situations to act in your best interests, and is emotionally detached from the outcome;

  • Pre-auction offers: if suited to the property, I can walk you through this process and ensure we have the best chance of securing the property;

  • Post-auction negotiations as required (when the property is ‘passed in’ at the auction, we shift gears for this negotiation phase);

  • Ongoing management of the entire process to ensure any issues that may arise are swiftly dealt with on your behalf;

  • Recommendations for reputable tradespeople and/or local service providers, such as utility connections;

  • Pre-settlement inspection undertaken for you to ensure you receive the property in the correct state;

  • Direct call to advise you settlement has taken place;

  • Delivery of keys on settlement day;

  • Advice and guidance from the moment you appoint me, throughout the entire process.


Claire used her knowledge of the auction process to gain the best outcome for us. Her experience took the stress out of a very tense situation.

Having Claire act on our behalf took the stress out of buying our house, whilst having the confidence we weren’t paying over market value for the property we wanted.
