Testimonials | First State Auctions


You are here


I just wanted to say a big thanks - I went to your Bentleigh auction today to try my luck with two particular lots ... and was successful in winning both. But more than that, I really enjoyed the afternoon. Your team really looked after and entertained us, making what can potentially be a tad boring so, so much more fun.

FSA is an exceptionally run business with fantastic pieces and the service is amazing. I paid a balance yesterday morning and at 10am next day it's sitting on my wrist. Any phone contact with Sydney has been lovely and I've seen auctions in 2 cities and it's the same high standard of care and attention from all involved ... Well done to everyone ... From a very happy customer.

Firstly I must congratulate your outstanding team - they are knowledgeable, polite and showed patience with a smile ... My background is middle management customer service and I have yet to meet a more professional competent team than yours ... Rest assured I will be back to purchase more and I’ll be referring friends and associates.

I love jewellery and I attend First State auctions quite regularly. I have made a few purchases now and highly compliment your staff on their courtesy, service and friendliness.

Brilliant auction company, I registered to bid online, Nathan talked me through the process then I was bidding live within 10 mins. I'm very happy with my purchases. Thanks.

I have bought a few watches with First State Auctions over the years. I bought at better prices than I could find on the net- all watches came with independent certification and warranty. Honest and trustworthy business.



It was my first auction that I attended and I am so glad I had someone there advise of the process from beginning to end.

First State Auctions is extremely well run with a great auctioneer.  It was so friendly and undaunting and I bought three items at my very first auction, for excellent prices. The venue and easy availability of parking was appreciated.

Bronwyn - Malvern, VIC


Willing to recommend 10/10 ... Your customer service is exemplary.

Nick - VIC


My experience with First State Auctions has been nothing but professional. Each auction I have attended has been so well run and super exciting. Your staff are always so friendly and patient. They are very knowledgable in everything I ask (and I ask a lot of questions). They always make me feel comfortable and confident in the decisions I have made. Whenever I call or pop into your offices I am always greeted with friendly faces. I highly recommend popping into one of their auctions - the experience alone is so much fun. I look forward to many more dealings with First State Auctions.

Alex is very happy with the engagement ring and I have been impressed with the staff service during and after the auction.

I received my beautiful tahitian pearl necklace ... I did a absentee bid and won the auction. I can recommend using First State Auctions.

Janet - Black Rock, VIC


Thanks for the beautiful jewellery from the Bentleigh auction. It was a great day and I was impressed how you had lunch and refreshments for the attendees. I will be back. Thanks

Russell B - VIC


We were quickly put at ease by the attentive and very knowledgeable staff on hand. It was certainly a treat to be able to try on unique items, and also to know that the quality of each item was guaranteed under the terms and conditions of First State Auctions.

Jen - Central Coast


I would just like to thank you for the fantastic customer service we recieved while at your auction in Chatswood. Every step of the way was easy and faultless

Rana - Guilford, NSW


My anniversary ring has just been delivered. It was very scary buying an item of some value sight unseen, but I am really happy with it and wanted to thank you very much for making the process so simple. Please also convey my thanks to the lady who I spoke to yesterday, for amending the invoice. Until a couple of weeks ago I had never heard of your organisation, but I wouldn.t hesitate to recommend it to others. Thank you so much for your friendly professional service.



I first heard about First State Auctions about 8 years ago and went to my first auction at Killara Motor Inn. Not having been to one before, and nervous about purchasing jewellery under auction conditions, we were quickly put at our ease by the attentive and very knowledgeable staff on hand. It was certainly a treat to be able to try on unique items, and also to know that the quality of each item was guaranteed under the terms and conditions of First State Auctions. To my delight, that day we came away with a ruby and diamond ring. This lovely ring has since been followed at very regular intervals by a number of other rings  (including my engagement, wedding and eternity rings), numerous pairs of earrings, a watch, and the odd bangle and bracelet all from First State. I have been spreading the good word about First State Auctions since then and have also reassured other nervous first time buyers

My first experience with First State Auctions was amazing ... I like the fact that you provide indicative values on your website and I enjoyed the entire process from viewing online to wearing the pieces - thank you to all of you!

Sue - Warawee, NSW


There was no pressure to buy and the staff took their time in explaining to me the intricate details of all the beautiful jewellery pieces that I was interested in, and ultimately purchased. It truly was a very enjoyable experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Denise - Avoca Beach


I received my ring in the post yesterday, and it looks and fits beautifully! I had no idea First State Auctions even existed until I searched on Google last week. I'm hooked!

Maggie - Kensignton, VIC


I have always been pleased with the jewellery that I have purchased from you. The values have always come out favourable.

Vivien - Cowaramup, WA
