Lachlan Macdonald

Holding a wealth of real estate knowledge and experience, Lachlan Macdonald is recognized as being the youngest ever Managing Director and Franchisee in the history of Australia’s largest real estate group. As both chief auctioneer and leading marketing agent for his office, Lachlan has extensive experience on both sides of auction day.

As a third generation real estate professional, Lachlan learnt the art of auctioneering at an early age. His grandfather’s gavel in hand, Lachlan won the Central Coast division and competed in the State Final of the Real Estate Institue of NSW Novice Auctioneers Competition in just his first full year in real estate. Lachlan has since gone on to be one of the most recognised auctioneers in his marketplace and has developed an incomparable understanding of the auction day preparation and process. These skills give Lachlan the ability to appreciate and assist with negotiations on auction day to achieve the very best possible result for agents, vendors and buyers alike, yet always maintaining a competitive and enthusiastic atmosphere.

A professional, calm and controlled demeanor, Lachlan’s passion for auctioneering, along with his background in real estate, are like no other. He brings invaluable advice and strategy to every auction with exceptional focus and drive. Like every Cooley Auctions team member, he is a truly talented auctioneer with the ability to maximize every benefit.
