WHITEFISH, Mont., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the pending sale of the Endless Sky Estate, a gorgeous mountain lodge, nestled near Whitefish Lake and Glacier National Park, offering world-class winter skiing, summer fishing and year-round nature. The Endless Sky Estate went under contract to the highest bidder following an auction on Tuesday in cooperation with listing agents Lorri Nelson and JoBeth Blair and buyer's agent Ross Pickert, all of Glacier Sotheby's International Realty.
"I am totally impressed with Concierge and all of its people," stated the seller, Kirk MacKenzie. "At first, my only contact was Chad Roffers, and he was outstanding in helping me determine whether the firm was the right fit for me. And everyone I've met since has been equally outstanding. Our on-site project sales manager, Erin, was fantastic - how hard she worked, how many people she contacted, and how she handled everyone. The advertising, marketing effort and everything that went into them was impressive. The market is what the market is, and Concierge did everything possible to create the best outcome for me."
Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 16,300 website visits from 48 U.S. states (led by Montana, Texas, California and Florida) and 24 international countries (led Canada, Columbia, Ireland the UK). A total of 387 prospects were identified and 6 bidders participated in the sale.
"Working with Concierge Auctions the past month has been an interesting and educational process. Their database of qualified buyers is impressive, and the net they cast to attract new candidates is wide and effective," stated Nelson. "Everyone on the Concierge team is an expert in the field - they are all professional and ethical in their approach. This was my first time representing a seller through the auction process, and Concierge Auctions worked with me every step of the way to answer each question my client and I had."
Nestled in the privacy of 20 acres, the 10,200-square-foot lodge embodies Montana with its thick Douglas fir timbers, cedar shingles, soaring ceilings, and local "Chief Cliff" stone. The focal point is its spectacular great room with magnificent woodwork and grand windows. The lodge overlooks Whitefish Lake and offers seemingly endless views of nearby Whitefish Mountain Ski and Summer Resort and the legendary snow-capped peaks of Glacier National Park from the home's 2000-square-feet of decking. Inside, the views are equally unobstructed with massive mitered windows throughout. The sumptuous master suite includes a fireplace and private deck and the home also includes three beautifully designed guest suites and a full apartment above the garage.
The town of Whitefish, Montana, is set in the heart of the Rocky Mountain wilderness near Glacier National Park. Locals and visitors flock to Whitefish Lake for swimming in the summer and Whitefish Mountain for skiing in the winter. With more than 700 miles of well-marked trails, the area is ripe for hiking and exploration, with clear streams, lakes, and glaciers all along the way. Whether skiing across a snow-topped landscape or bicycling the Going-to-the-Sun Road, the entire region is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. The community also enjoys a strong theater and arts community, with hundreds of sculptors, craftsmen, painters, and authors calling Whitefish home.
"Going the Concierge Auctions route allows sellers to reach a wider audience than you normally would with traditional marketing avenues. After stepping outside the traditional means of marketing with this property, today we had an unprecedented number of 6 potential buyers genuinely interested in owning this home," stated Blair. "Concierge Auctions has mastered the craft of the luxury auction. I am convinced they are the best at what they do."
