Oliver Burton

Oliver understands that a great auction starts with creating an emotional attachment to the property and then depends on the auctioneer’s ability to create a rhythm, read the crowd and tap into those emotional attachments. Oliver is gifted with a natural confidence, that sees him control his auctions with ease, using his wit to engage his bidders and his passion to command attention.

As a graduate of the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and a highly sought after corporate MC, Oliver has spent his working life in front of audiences. Thanks to his acting background, Oliver is an experienced improviser, quick on his feet and exceptionally articulate. A skilled negotiator, Oliver also understands what it takes to get the deal done, an ability he acquired during his time as the founding Business Manager of an award-winning theatre company.

A previous winner of the prestigious REINSW Novice Auctioneers Competition, Oliver’s skill and charisma is undeniable and he stands out as an excellent auctioneer, one that tenaciously achieves top dollar for his clients.

Oliver grew up on Sydney’s North Shore and is deeply immersed in the area’s unique history and evolving culture.

Oliver is a committed meditator and an uncommitted guitarist.

  • “Selling at auction can be stressful, but Oli’s confidence, preparation and attention to detail really made us feel at ease every step of the way. Oli took time to really understand our property, its unique qualities and its true value and potential. As an auctioneer he has a reassuring style and manner – forthright, confident, encouraging but with a commitment to treating all parties with genuine courtesy and respect. And most importantly, he was key to getting a tremendous result on the day.”

  • “Oliver was a fantastic auctioneer! The vendor was so happy with his performance and the result they achieved. He was extremely attentive and went above and beyond from throughout the entire sales campaign and even after the sale. I would highly recommend Oliver and look forward to working with him in the future.”
