The live, on-site auction of Pueo Point, a premier ocean bluff residence and adjacent lot located in prestigious Anini Vista on the North Shore of Kauai, will commence absolute on August 23, meaning each property will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price, Concierge Auctions has announced. The auction will consist of two bidding segments, one for the main residence, perfectly situated on 1.32 acres, and one for the adjacent 1.67-acre lot. The parcels combined have a 2/3 undivided interest in an additional four acres of perfectly manicured common area with easy access to Anini Beach below. The residence is currently listed for $9.8 million, and the lot is currently listed for $3.67 million. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with Neal Norman of Koa Properties.

"When initially researching creative marketing strategies to sell Pueo Point, I became familiar with various auction methods," stated owner and real estate investor, Michele Hughes. "I am a firm believer in risk/return. Our team's strategy to implement an absolute approach reflects the confidence we have that these gorgeous properties will attract those special buyers who recognize their quality and value. This auction presents an unprecedented opportunity to own a trophy property on Kauai's coveted north shore. The highest bidders on August 23rd will set market value, and we are convinced the results will be a 'win-win' for everyone."

"Ms. Hughes is committed to ensuring these properties sell at auction, which has created a once-in-a-lifetime chance for any buyers searching for exclusive Kauai real estate to become involved," stated George Graham, CEO of Concierge Auctions.

"With a 2.5% buyer's broker commission offered, all area brokers should be calling their clients to let them in on this unique opportunity," stated Norman.
