"The Wilson-Harvey Auction Group sold our 1,300 acre farm by auction and we were very satisfied with the professional job they did.
We selected Wilson-Harvey Auction Group around 12 months before the auction. We had bids in from three different auction companies and considered that Wilson-Harvey was the group for us.
The reason we selected them was the effort they went to to understand the nature of our farm which had been in the family for close to 200 years. In addition they were a local firm with good contacts in the farming and banking communities. We knew from this that they would be able to attract buyers to the auction.
On top of all this my wife and I live in Sydney, Australia. Although we visited the farm on several occasions during the process of selecting the auction firm we wished to work with, we had to be able to trust the firm we selected as we were not full time on the farm. Our trust in Wilson-Harvey was not misplaced."
