NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, a luxury real estate auction firm serving high-net-worth individuals worldwide, achieved record sales in 2014, raising its historic volume to $725 million.
The firm's success ranks highest in the industry and was matched with other unprecedented advances for the nation's leading luxury home auction firm. Highlights from 2014 included expansion from 23 to 27 US states and from 3 to 5 countries, as well as a 100% increase in the firm's unrivaled number of global contacts to 200,000.
"2014 was our seventh consecutive year of growth at Concierge Auctions. We made significant investments in hiring new talent, specifically in sales, marketing and finance. We now have 34 full-time employees who are experts in their fields and skilled at delivering the highest level of service," said Laura Brady, president of Concierge Auctions. "And, we're not slowing down. We already have a number of exciting auctions and new ideas up our sleeve to roll out in 2015."
The year also brought prestigious awards and recognition to the luxury home auction firm. Inc. Magazine named Concierge Auctions one of America's fastest growing companies, and Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate awarded the firm Best Overall Marketing. Leverage Global Partners selected Concierge its auctioneer of choice, and Brady was named one of the "Top 100 Leaders in Real Estate" by Inman News.
Banner sales domestically included the $17.2 million sale of Peace Ranch near Aspen, CO; the $16.1 million sale of Amber Hills in Brentwood, CA; the $14.3 million sale of El Milagro in Rancho Santa Fe, CA; and the highest sale price in over five years along the coveted Philadelphia Main Line. Concierge also solidified its flawless record in the Jackson Hole, WY area with the sales of several legacy ranches. And, the firm's success in selling ranches was not limited to Jackson Hole: Concierge affirmed its ranch expertise across the country from Oregon to California and Montana to Colorado.
Internationally, the firm hosted successful auctions in Fiji, Mexico, Canada and the Bahamas — where it sold the country's largest private island for $18.7 million.
Concierge Auctions' success has led to experts taking note. The company named real estate titan Barbara Corcoran to its advisory board in April. The Shark Tank investor describes how Concierge Auctions is revolutionizing the way high net worth individuals buy and sell their luxury homes:
"I partner with businesses based not only on their product or service but much more importantly — their people. The Concierge Auctions team is special," said Corcoran. "And, Concierge is filling a void in the highest end of the market as the smart way to buy and sell the world's finest properties. I am bursting with ideas on how to push their rapid growth."
