Amazing results in support of Got Your Back Sista
At the recent Main Event in support of local charity, Got Your Back Sista, agents across Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast pulled out all the stops.
Working hard behind the scenes in the lead up to the event, agents sold 8 properties prior to auction using the Friendly Auction System – kick starting the donation in fine style. Another 16 properties were sold with thanks to Australia’s most booked auctioneer and five times winner of The Block, Damien Cooley.
Building upon the momentum of previous years’ events a staggering $12,000 was raised for Got Your Back Sista through the sale of 24 properties and a donation of $500 per sale.
It doesn’t stop there
PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie founding Director, Mark Kentwell said that this year’s event was one of the biggest yet and the interest continues. “As a result of all the buyer activity this campaign has generated there were buyers who missed out on properties as well as vendors who didn’t get a chance to get their property into the Main Event. We are currently taking submissions for another auction event in 2021.”
