Clarence White wins record 5th NSW auction title
Leading independent Sydney real estate auctioneer Clarence White of Menck White Auctioneers secured a record 5th NSW Auctioneering title at the REINSW Awards for Excellence Gala dinner this week. Clarence now stands alone as the only auctioneer to win the NSW Senior Auctioneering Competition on five occasions, eclipsing the record previously held by John McGrath.
After wins in 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2020, Clarence secured the title again in 2022 edging out fellow finalists Leon Axford, Stuart Ritchie, Jake Downs and Paul Hancock. 14 competitors participated in the heats on day one, with 5 auctioneers progressing to the final on day two. The REINSW Award for Excellence in Auctioneering is adjudicated based on a live auction competition that is peer-judged by prominent leading auctioneers and real estate professionals. This year’s judging panel included Thomas McGlynn (chief judge), Jesse Davidson, Briannan Davis and buyers agent Amanda Gould.
“It’s a tremendous reward for an enormous amount of hard work. I just feel so blessed and grateful. It will be an honour and a privilege to have the opportunity to represent NSW again at the Australasian Championships. I certainly have unfinished business there. ” Clarence said.
