ONE of the country’s most exciting young auctioneers, Alex Pattaro, has joined the Ray White Group after accepting the newly created role of Ray White NSW Chief Auctioneer.
Mr Pattaro started calling auctions as a fresh-faced 18-year-old, although video footage dating back to when Mr Pattaro was just eight years of age proves auctioneering has always been in his blood.
“I was in my pyjamas and I think I may have gone to an auction with dad,” he said.
“I legally started auctioneering when I was 18, learning how to manage the nerves and gain the right skills.”
It didn’t take long for Mr Pattaro to attract recognition for his quality service and impressive results.
“I am approachable, always willing to help out in any situation, always full of energy and people get to know me quickly because what you see is what you get,” Mr Pattaro said.
“I love the industry and that love, passion and drive is portrayed in how I speak. I live and breathe the auction process.”
Ray White New South Wales Blue CEO Jason Andrew said Mr Pattaro had been appointed to support the delivery of the best auction service available in the marketplace.
“Alex’s role extends past calling auctions to training and guiding the network on procurement and performance,” Mr Andrew said.
“He has a professional, energetic and powerful presence. We’re excited to welcome Alex to the team, his addition is a sign of strength and growth within the wider Ray White brand.”
Mr Pattaro said it was a dream opportunity to join the Ray White family.
“I believe it’s not only the best brand but the most dominant brand,” he said.
“It’s been around the longest and has wonderful traditional values, but is also modern and fresh with a youthful energy. I’ve loved auctions since I was a young boy so being part of a brand that really pushes the auction process is something I thrive off.”
