Place Auctions

Delivering Brisbane's best Auction experience since 2002.


Why Auction?

The ability an Auction has to create an electric environment, generate interest and the unconditional nature of the sale, is simply unrivalled when compared to selling via private treaty. 

More homes are selling at Auction in Brisbane than ever before, which means it is more important than ever to have Brisbane’s most experienced Auction team guiding you through the process. 

At their core, Auctions are an opportunity to transact property in a transparent, open forum environment with set conditions. However, at Place, they are much more than just that.


Auctions at Place

Place have been ambassadors of the Auction method since our doors opened in 2002.

When you attend a Place Auction, our commitment to excellence is all around you; the Auction is considered a community event as opposed to a time and place to sell a home. As a result, we have built an esteemed reputation for delivering Brisbane’s best Auction experience. The entire Place team are incredibly proud of this culture and belief that we have worked hard to build over 20 years.

We are always trying to improve the Auction experience and are proud to have remained ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation in Auctions. 


Our commitment to you

Place Estate Agents was established in 2002 with a clear vision: to be Brisbane's best residential real estate agency. Today, Place dominate the Brisbane market with our focus solely dedicated to this city. Auctions are a large part of our business, and we are committed to providing Brisbane's best Auction experience in the hopes that we maximise the value of what is someone's largest asset.

Collectively, Place held over 1100 Auctions across Brisbane in 2021. This is a testament to our unwavering belief in Auctions as a method of sale as well as our commitment to leading the industry in Brisbane.
