Liam Kirkwood the award winning Auctioneer is continuing to make a name for him in the livestock and property industry. At just 23 years old Liam the principal of Ray White Rural Townsville, is one of the youngest principals in Australia.
Liam won the prestigious ALPA Queensland Young Auctioneers competition at the Royal Brisbane Show in 2019, and continued his success, winning the title of the 2021 ALPA National Young Auctioneers Competition. In its 30th year the 2021 National competition was bigger than ever with a field of 16 national finalists competing for the title.
The newly minted principal has worked in livestock his entire career but said he is no stranger to the rural real estate market and running a small business. He had been working at Ray White Rural Townsville since January 2019 and before that he was a livestock buyer in New South Wales and Queensland.
He has held ambitions of being a principal because he has always been around people owing their own businesses. Watching and learning is something I have done from an early age, and these people have taught me a lot and given me opportunities that have helped me to learn and grow.
