KAUAI, Hawaii, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week's auction of a premier island residence within the exclusive Kuki'o Golf and Beach Club marks the 20th luxury property sale in Hawaii for Concierge Auctions, the firm is pleased to announce. The 9,277-square-foot residence at 72-110 Kahawaliwali Place was sold in cooperation with Carrie Nicholson, Principal Broker at Kuki'o Properties. The buyer is from California and was represented by James Schneider, also of Kuki'o Properties.

"We continue to enjoy our partnership with Concierge Auctions, as this is our sixth sale alongside their team. Their tactics for reaching the world's most capable high-end buyers pair well with our community," Nicholson stated. "Kuki'o is an extraordinary place to live. The Concierge team along with our combined local expertise and contacts are a powerful combination."

Concierge Auctions' global exposure campaign produced 116 buyer prospects, over 25 showings and 8 bidders. The diverse mix of Internet, print and direct marketing, broker outreach and public relations resulted in 2,878 visits to the auction website from 47 US states and 39 international countries (led by Canada, the UK, India, Australia and China).

"The efficiency of this auction was remarkable. Eight bidders participated, and each deposited $50,000 into escrow with their registration. The competition was so strong that the bidding jumped $300,000 in the last minute," stated Todd Moen of The Moen Group, a personal representative of the seller. "The reason the Concierge platform is taking off is simple - they deliver top results. I have been so impressed with the Concierge team that I also referred them to sell three properties in Kauai's Kukui'ula community - scheduled for auction June 21st."

Lot 57 is a prime site on Kuki'o's 10-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course. The home's exterior features include a stucco finish with Cedar shake roof and Honduran mahogany detailing. There is an outdoor dining area with a BBQ, a wet bar, an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa and an outdoor shower. Indoors, the stunning master suite features Tigerwood flooring, a mahogany ceiling and its own covered lanai. Additionally there are four guest suites - all with private entrances - five bathrooms, a powder room, a gourmet kitchen and plenty of expansive spaces for entertaining.

"Our inquiries from Hawaii luxury property sellers continue to increase with each auction we conduct," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "Just a few weeks ago we celebrated the successful sale of Kohola Point, which marked the highest price in the past year in the Anini Vista community and the second highest this year on Kauai. We look forward to continued success with our next two auctions of six Kauai properties, taking place on June 18th and June 21st."

Upcoming Hawaiian auctions: Two 5+acre Kauai ocean bluff sites with luxury villas and one 24-acre oceanfront site, all with exclusive Kauapea Road addresses, will head to auction on June 18th - one of which will sell Without Reserve, meaning it will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. Three new-construction luxury cottages located within Kauai's exclusive Kukui'ula community, an ocean view development ripe with amenities, will sell on June 21st - two Without Reserve.
