Georgina Hilton

Georgina sets the bar high winning a top award in 2017 with just four sales under her belt

Georgina Hilton (DH 2009) took her first auction in January 2017 at Christies and in October 2017 she was awarded the UK’s Novice Auctioneer of the Year 2017 Award by NAVA Propertymark. The competition, sponsored by Clive Emerson and Antiques Trade Gazette, was held at the Oxford Belfry and involved a bidding sequence organised to demonstrate possible occurrences in the saleroom and to test the entrants skills, knowledge and presence on the rostrum. Georgina who joined Christies in 2013, beat nine male colleagues to take the title.

Georgina comments:

"Nothing beats the excitement of getting on the rostrum for a big sale in a room full of clients and all of your colleague’s telephone bidding. The atmosphere is incredible and I love throwing as much energy into it as I can."
