Jacinta Hocking

Engaging an audience is second nature to Jacinta, whose entire career has been as a professional presenter and communicator in Australian television. For 20 years Jacinta worked with both the Ten and Seven Networks as a TV Journalist and Newsreader and later in senior management as Chief of Staff Ten News Sydney, broadcasting breaking news into potentially millions of Australian homes on a daily basis.

All of this has given Jacinta a unique edge for her career in property auctioneering, where she has swapped the microphone for the gavel. Her warmth and polished delivery allow her to put everyone at an auction very much at ease, proving there’s never a reason to be afraid of bidding, buying or selling at auction.

Jacinta prides herself on her steely determination to ensure the best possible price is achieved on auction day and agents and vendors looking for a point of difference have warmly welcomed her style.

  • “Jacinta is without question one of the most professional Auctioneers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her attention to detail and vendor management is arguably the best in our market. I believe her enthusiasm and positive approach to all my auctions to be the overwhelming reason I have such a high success rate.

    Her post auction dialogue with both vendors and purchasers is always a nice touch. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jacinta to any agents or vendors. I look forward to an ongoing and long term relationship with Jacinta and the Cooley team”

  • “Jacinta Hocking is a cut above the rest.  From the moment the auction started it was apparent that Jacinta knew her stuff.  She immediately made the registered bidders feel comfortable and encouraged buyers to bid with confidence.  They would be hard pressed not to faced with that winning smile. Jacinta has the knack of putting people at ease, effortlessly and naturally. 

    Jacinta is generous with her time and together we successfully exhausted all bidding right down to the last dollar.

    I hold Jacinta Hocking in the highest esteem.  She is an exceptionally talented woman and is clearly an asset to our industry.”

  • “Jacinta took control of the auction right from the start and that enabled us to sell the property for a significant amount over our vendors reserve. Her professional approach pushed the bidders to their absolute maximum potential.”
