Concierge Auctions Secures Pre-Auction Contract For Contemporary Mountain Escape Within Vail Village, Colorado

Aug 8, 2018

NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A furnished mountain escape location within the Vail Potato Patch Enclave successfully went under contract prior to its scheduled August 6th auction date, Concierge Auctions reports. Part of the firm's Summer Mountain Sale, the 7,325-square-foot home sold in cooperation with Ric Souto of Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate.

"The marketing executed by Concierge Auctions was over and above world-class. We just couldn't be happier," stated the seller, Jim Frein. "After having our home on the market for about two and half years, without much traffic, we're delighted the auction process stirred up the marketplace to find our buyer. I've already sent Concierge's contact info to two or three of my friends in the same boat, looking to downsize and wondering how to get it done. This is the way."

Previously listed for $5.669 million, the south-facing home — located at 798 Potato Patch Drive — is comprised of three levels with five bedrooms, a sunlit master retreat, home theater, exercise room, wrap-around deck, indoor/outdoor hot tub, and walk-in wine cellar. Interior features include hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, Venetian plaster, and floor-to-ceiling windows to offer a light-filled interior and Vail mountain vistas.

The enclave is a family and dog-friendly neighborhood that backs up to the White River National Forest, allowing easy access to hiking and biking. Vail Village also offers cultural festivals, craft breweries, fly fishing in Gore Creek, dining, and shopping alongside its world-class skiing and snowboarding.

"Once the seller decided to pursue the auction route, the dynamics of the selling effort became completely different. Introducing the word 'auction' brought a new and additional level of inquiries and prospects to the property," stated Souto. "The Concierge team and ours quickly developed a good working relationship whereas Concierge presented the auction process clearly, and my team focused on presenting the features of the home, neighborhood and local market conditions. Together, we achieved success and I look forward to working with them again."
