Concierge Auctions Pleased With Results of Luxury Real Estate Auction

Announces Next Sale

Oct 4, 2008

Today Concierge Auctions hosted a luxury real estate sale of two bay front estates on Siesta Key, Florida. The auction was located at the Sarasota Ritz-Carlton Hotel, with over 100 attendees.

"It was a very well organized, transparent event," said Marisa Marino of Horizon Realty. "A client of mine participated, but unfortunately he was outbid. He and I look forward to participating again in the next sale."

This was the debut of Concierge Auctions' innovative Guaranty Program. The program benefits both buyers and sellers, as they can participate with confidence knowing the properties will sell on Auction Day regardless of the high bid.

"In the context of the current economic climate, I am thrilled that we were able to aggregate a strong crowd, including 26 qualified bidders willing to spend millions of dollars for these exceptional properties," said Stuart Mattison, Director of Sales. "The fact that they not only attended the event but also actively participated was encouraging."

  AUCTION RESULTS (high bid plus premium)
  1356 Point Crisp Road: $2,772,750
  850 Mangrove Point Road: $2,200,000

"We are pleased with the results and have received outstanding feedback from the real estate community. Our format has resonated, and we believe we are on our way to bringing the auction process to the mainstream," said Laura Brady, President.

Concierge Auctions has made the determination that it is in the best interest of the seller and registered buyers of 850 Mangrove Point Road to re-offer the property in the next Sarasota auction in December. The decision was reached after the firm was notified that at least two buyers were precluded from placing their highest bid on the property.

Sellers interested in the Sarasota December sale should contact Concierge Auctions immediately. Availability will be limited to a maximum of five properties, which will be selected within the next four weeks. As always, Concierge Auctions fully protects listing and buying brokers.
