The top-rating breakfast radio co-host Jackie “O” Henderson sold her matrimonial Vaucluse home on Friday night ahead of its planned Monday online auction.

It’s apparently fetched a tad above its $6.5 million price guide with buyers agent Ed Flitcroft of Chalk Road negotiating the acquisition for a local family.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 2018 by Henderson and her husband, photographer Lee Henderson.

Jackie O previously told listeners on The Kyle & Jackie ‘‘O’’ Show that she is “sad to let go because it is such a lovely home’’. Now renting at Bondi, she missed out last year on a $5.86 million Vaucluse auction offering.

With 940 scheduled auctions, before the coronavirus onsite auction ban, most vendors have gone private treaty or withdrawn altogether. The auctioneers did a great job yesterday with the estimated 150 going ahead online. The auctions were typically running late and long, one taking 45 minutes and another with 67 bids.

There was drama at a Ray White auction when a bidder lodged a virtual bid some $200,000 higher than intended into the online bidding system. The bid was undone by auctioneer James Keenan and that bidder went on to be the $1.41 million Newtown underbidder.

Hunters Hill saw a $3.375 million sale, the highest reported success, where the McGrath auctioneer Edward Riley needed to deviate from his regular positive script about the proximity to cafes.

“Make no mistake they’ll be back,” he added.

Just two bidders competed but over 130 tuned in to the auction, which had three interruptions with technical glitches.

“Not everything always goes smoothly ... but there’s plenty of people interested in what is happening in the market.”
