WESTON, Conn., Nov. 5, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that 39 Cavalry Road, a picturesque lakefront estate on two acres, sold today at a live, on-site auction conducted in cooperation with listing agent Patrice M. Schramm of Prudential Connecticut Realty.

The global outreach conducted by Concierge Auctions produced over 80 showings and 8 bidders. The aggressive marketing campaign generated 2,006 visits to the auction website from 59 countries (led by the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Argentina and France) and 45 US states (led by CT, NY, NJ, CA and TX).

"This was an exciting experience. The Concierge Auctions sales and marketing outreach efforts were phenomenal, and their team was a pleasure to work alongside," stated Schramm. "Our combined efforts generated over 80 showings in four weeks, which is a significant accomplishment considering that 54 other comparable homes priced between $1 million and $3 million are currently on the market in Weston. I would certainly recommend Concierge Auctions to other luxury real estate brokers and sellers who are searching for a guaranteed solution to sell their properties within a specified timeframe."

Perched on two acres overlooking the calm, sparkling waters of Crystal Lake, 39 Cavalry Road was thoughtfully built to showcase expansive views from nearly every room.

The open backyard features a large green space with lush landscaping framed by mature trees that overlook the lake and a private dock.

"The auction process for luxury homes is growing in popularity in the Northeast, as many sellers are frustrated with the uncertainties and inefficiencies in the current market," stated Concierge Auctions CEO George Graham.

This is particularly true in the Northeast luxury market, where shadow inventory poses a significant threat in the coming years. Concierge Auctions is a clear choice for innovative sellers who choose a guaranteed outcome - the certainty of a sale by a particular date. We are proving ourselves with successful auctions nationwide, and with our headquarters based in New York City, we are excited about our increased presence in the tri-state area."
