Pauline Barrington

Hello, I’m Pauline and I do what I can to keep my two high-energy auctioneers able to perform at their best. As the team’s administrator and liaison I glue it all together so the guys can bring you some of the treasures they pick up around the country.

Brought up in the country, I’ve been involved with auctions my whole life. I cut my teeth at livestock auctions in northern NSW and moved into country realty before relocating to the big smoke in the 90s for the next chapter in my life.

I still wanted to be involved in auctions so I took a role at Lawson’s as secretary to their onsite valuers, specialising in insurance, auction and family law matters. It was quite a change from livestock but I found myself increasingly attracted to quality porcelain and silver artworks. I switched over to their Decorative Arts/Silver department where I further developed an appreciation for Australian masters painters.

Since I joined Charleston’s we’ve grown into a very good team. A little quirky at times perhaps, but we share a level of professionalism, knowledge and insight that has allowed the company to grow and given the guys a respected reputation.

I’ve worked for various auction houses so I can tell you Charleston’s stands out for its commitment to customer service and its genuine passion for creating positive experiences.

Visit us at a Charleston’s auction and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

“Pauline is the glue that holds this place together. The vibrancy of Danny and Adam’s auctioneering skills are balanced by her profound knowledge of the auction environment. She holds her cards close but I know she loves being a part of Charleston’s and she plays no small part in its legacy.” Paul Howell, Logistics Manager.

“We love Pauline! We love Pauline!” Danny & Adam
