A new partnership is set to bolster the online auction space in Australia.
A major alignment between property auction business Anywhere Auctions and Real Estate Gym’s Tom Panos will see the auctioneer veteran provide agents who are utilising the digital platform with expert training and coaching.
While Mr Panos said he had seen other online auction service providers come and go over the years, “it was immediately evident to me that the Anywhere Auctions solution was finally meeting the need and more”.
“My passion lies in supporting the real estate industry, whether that be auction or private sale transactions, and so it was obvious to me that this solution is helping all walks of people,” Mr Panos said.
“Whether it’s those who have to work every weekend, parents who are busy with their children at Saturday sport, or even long-distance buyers — this experience delivers benefit to anyone using it at auction.”
The real estate trainer will be “working hand in hand” with Anywhere Auction clients, using proven step-by-step strategies, a statement revealed.
According to Anywhere Auctions, there’s “untapped demand for unparalleled convenience expected by buyers and sellers alike” in property markets across Australia and New Zealand.
A lack of convenience was one of the driving factors behind managing director and co-founder Garry Giritharan’s decision to launch Anywhere Auctions.
“I was an experienced property buyer myself, but I was tired of letting such a huge decision hinge on my ability to physically turn up to an auction, and I knew there had to be a smarter way,” he stated.
“But it turns out there wasn’t, so we’ve built one from scratch so anyone really can be there from anywhere!”
Mr Giritharan has professed his solution as “true end-to-end value”, especially since COVID-19 forced an upheaval of the real estate industry.
“We’re empowering buyers, sellers and agents to digitally transact from anywhere, anytime — maximising positive outcomes for all parties involved,” he said.
It’s a sentiment shared by Mr Panos: “What I’m seeing from Anywhere Auctions is that their solution is giving buyers flexibility, giving vendor peace of mind that they’re never risking underselling their property, and that means it’s going to be a no-brainer for real estates all over the country and eventually the world.”
The new alignment is the latest in a series of big-name strategic partnerships formed by Anywhere Auctions, which just last month confirmed an alliance with realestate.com.au.
