Meet Our Auctioneers











Ben is a proven auctioneer with an excellent skill set. As part of the Harcourts Gold auction team, he is one of two regular auctioneers who work in tandem on auction day to ensure the best possible results for our sellers. His role also extends to assisting our agents with managing the auction process when they require it and is always happy to talk to buyers and sellers before reserve set and auction day should they have any question about auction.

With a rural background and as a graduate of the University of Canterbury, means Ben has strong local knowledge. His time as a sales consultant has forged his negotiation skills and given him experience guiding sellers through auctioning their properties while also helping buyers successfully purchase.

Ben as your auctioneer will be an advocate of your property, working tirelessly to ensure information that allows sound property decisions to be made is in your hands. His naturally calm and friendly manner allows him to relate well with buyers in the room and during negotiations.

Tim McGoldrick knows that selling your property can be an emotional and stressful time. His innate empathy and ability to build rapport with those he engages, his constant refinement of skills, plus his ability to negotiate naturally and effectively assure you of the best possible outcome when you auction.

In 2011 he became an integral part of the Barfoot & Thompson Auckland auction team. Here his auction numbers and results were dramatic, calling well in excess of 5000 auctions in his first 4 years. Whilst numbers are critical to an auctioneer, quality of care and service to vendor clients is Tim’s driving force. As a born and raised Cantabrian, the opportunity to join the Harcourts Gold auction team in 2017 proved irresistible. He is one of two regular auctioneers who understands the needs of owners and their compelling desire to maximise the returns for their most valuable asset. 

Tim combines his real estate experience, wealth of negotiation skills and award-winning charisma to get your property sold.
