Auction for an Auction

"Auction for an Auction" – an initiative making a massive difference to our school


We, at Jellis Craig, created a prize designed to be auctioned at our school fete. ‘Auction for an Auction’ delivers a substantial financial benefit to the school and the very lucky prize winner.

The highest bidder at the auction secures a world-class sales and marketing campaign where they can select from a private sale, auction or expressions of interest campaign run by Jellis Craig Northcote director Sam Rigopoulos.

It includes the following:

  • complimentary styling advice.
  • complimentary social media marketing.
  • a premium advertising campaign with photography,
  • brochure and internet advertising, and most importantly;
  • no sales commission.
  • As well as some Vendor Paid Advertising (VPA) on REA
    and Domain

Immediately after the prize winner has been announced, the winner signs an agent agreement.

Important things to note:

  • The property to be sold must fall within the service area of Jellis Craig’s northern network.
  • The property must be a single dwelling.
  • The prize is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

The most exciting benefits of this prize are the following:

  • The winner does not make any payment on fete day.
  • There are zero out-of-pocket expenses for the property sale.
  • The school receives the money raised on the day the property settles.
Based on the average house price in Northcote, this prize is conservatively valued at more than $40,000."
