Michael Garofolo

A born communicator and experienced negotiator, Michael is equipped with characteristics that have lead him to excel as an auctioneer.

Michael understands the role that emotions play when it comes to transacting property and his inherent interpersonal skills are evident in the way he interacts with all parties involved in the sale process. Always pushing for more, Michael skillfully engages with buyers to ensure no bids are held back on auction day and that a premium price is achieved.

With a background in finance, numbers are second nature to Michael and his calling skills are impeccable. Not one to give up on any challenge that comes his way, Michael makes it his mission to go above and beyond for his clients and often exceeds expectations. This attitude, combined with his finely tuned auctioneering skills, saw Michael become the 2017 REINSW Novice Auctioneer Competition champion.

Passionate, confident & friendly, Michael has a commanding presence that sets the tone of each and every auction he calls. A highly valued representative of the Cooley brand, Michael is an asset to the team and the field of auctioneering.

  • “Without Michael’s assistance I don’t know that we would have achieved a result at the time, let alone at such a wonderful price. The vendor was very happy and relieved to see the property sold on auction day. I would have no hesitation employing Michael as our Auctioneer and I look forward to working with him again in the near future.”
