ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions announces the successful auction sale of a newly constructed, custom home located within the exclusive Palencia golf and tennis community near Jacksonville, Florida. The sale was handled in cooperation with Naomi Lumley and Pud English of Palencia Realty. The buyer is from Pennsylvania and is represented by Janet H. Boone of Watson Realty Corp.

"This is a gorgeous home, but it was completed during a difficult market 4 years ago and has been for sale since. When Concierge announced the auction, the opportunity was instantly validated, and buyers took notice," English stated. "The Concierge project manager, Nick Leonard, was on-site for three weeks prior to the sale, working alongside us, following up with every lead, and ensuring the market was aware of the auction. He was professional, knowledgeable and an ideal partner. In the end, everyone's hard work paid off. It was a win-win outcome for everyone involved."

Concierge Auctions' extensive campaign of internet, print and direct marketing, sales efforts, broker outreach and public relations efforts produced over 50 showings and 6 bidders. The process generated 198 inquiries and 1,861 visits to the auction website from 44 US states and 20 international countries (led by Canada, the UK and Mexico).

"The buyer interest was strong from the beginning, and the momentum continued to build through the lively competition on auction day," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "Following our recent sales of a luxury St. Johns River estate and another residence in the Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club, we're thrilled to announce another Florida success."

Situated in Palencia's Santa Teresa neighborhood, known for its expansive home sites and Intracoastal and nature preserve views, 642 Santa Teresa Court is a 5,712-square-foot residence with an additional 1,200 square feet of outdoor entertainment areas.
