During his previous career as an agent in commercial real estate, Leon Axford attended his first auction. Watching the excitement build and the energy circulate around the crowd – Leon knew he had found his calling and pursed his dream.
Leon is now the director of his own company Axford Auctions and calls up to 500 Auctions a year; covering residential, commercial, industrial and retail real estate.
“Calling auctions is my only calling.” Leon testifies.
Asking Leon what he brings to the Auction scene, he replies enthusiastically with a big grin “I’m a creative person, and I like to bring my own flair to the auctions I call, a little joke here, a story there…”
Leon turns work into fun and entertainment; bringing a smile to the crowd and a sold sticker to the signboard.
Fun is not only vibrantly running through his auction style, but his personal style as well.
A snappy dresser, we are yet to see Leon wear the same pair of socks – spreading smiles with an array of happy accessories.
Leon is working exclusively with Villager Property, complementing our marketing campaigns to deliver beautiful style with exceptional and consistent results.
For example, last Sunday Villager Property held 3 Auction properties in succession and all three were successfully sold; a testament to an exceptional team!
“There are two types of bidders I see a lot, those that test the water with their toe and slowly wade into the water… and those that jump right in straight away! Its all good fun though!” Leon tells us as we wander down Darby Street.
But if the water is as nice as a Newcastle Beach then all that matters is that you go wet, really!
