Here’s the transcript of the video:

in terms of bidding at auction strategy I'm always a firm believer of being the
first cab out off the rank that I'm going hard and going fast
yeah because auctions are psychological that I see when an auction generally
starts quite low that the momentum builds and I can see the buyers start
forgetting about price the ego takes over it's about winning right so
disengage the ego no matter how much you love the property know your limit
you know you don't want to overpay for something so got to have a good
understanding about where you feel comfortable now your limit compared to somebody else limit and their thoughts on price is completely subjective but just
be comfortable with where you can spend too
