THE BEST TEAM FOR YOUR DAY

MATTHEW CONDON

Integrity underpins everything Matthew Condon aspires to be and do. While still eminently able to put on a show, he’s ultimately a no-nonsense and honest auctioneer, always seeking the best outcome for all parties.

Matthew initially cut his real estate teeth on sales in a major franchise group, quickly proving his competence with the auction process as it became his naturally preferred method of sale. This experience proved to be a solid foundation for his subsequent career as a professional auctioneer.

Now almost a decade later, Matthew is proud to include several high profile Brisbane agencies amongst his loyal client base and has successfully sold thousands of properties under the hammer.

Many of these have involved some level of independent and creative negotiation between seller and buyer to finalise a sale, another skill Matthew has become valued for by his partner agents.

From entry-level through to high-end prestige property, Matthew is equally at home with any call, easily adapting his style to suit the occasion and the audience.
