BIG SKY, Mont., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce that three luxury mountain residences located within the prestigious Yellowstone Club and The Club at Spanish Peaks – two exclusive gated communities with superior amenities including private ski and golf resort access – were sold at auction on March 2nd. The auction was conducted in cooperation with listing agent Martha Johnson of Rivers To Peaks ~ Big Sky Real Estate. The buyers were represented by Martha Johnson and John Bauchman, both of Rivers To Peaks ~ Big Sky Real Estate, and Tim Ryan of Resort Property Management.
"Concierge was engaged to sell a number of 'built for sale' homes which we wanted to monetize quickly, and they did the job," stated a representative for the seller. "The interest generated in four weeks was off the charts and really kicked off a buzz in Big Sky. Concierge's aggressive marketing and sales approach was full throttle right from the beginning and didn't stop until the auction was a success. Their team's skill with working through complicated homeowner's association and new construction elements was impressive. In the end, we not only sold more properties than we had originally anticipated but also achieved strong, market prices that set a floor for the Spanish Peaks community."
Concierge Auctions' worldwide exposure campaign identified 362 buyer prospects and 12 bidders. The auction website generated over 6,000 visitors from all US states led by MT, TX, CA and WA and 56 international countries led by the US, Canada, the UK and Mexico.
"This experience was such a thrill! I could not have imagined all of the interest generated by the Concierge program and the urgency that was created with the set auction date," Johnson stated. "Our sellers were committed to finding new owners, and we did. It was a great day for everyone involved as well as for Big Sky overall."
One of the residences that sold is located within the Yellowstone Club, one of the world's only ski and golf communities. The four-bedroom, six-bathroom residence contains approximately 4,806 square feet including multiple living rooms, great outdoor entertaining areas and private ski bridge access. The Yellowstone Club's extensive amenities include over 2,200 private skiable acres, a Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course, several dining options, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, retail shops, a business center, endless outdoor activities and more.
The two other residences are located within Spanish Peaks, a 5,700-acre ski and golf community, adjacent to the slopes of Big Sky Resort Biggest Skiing in America™ and also home to a Tom Weiskopf-signature golf course. Both Pioneer Cabin 18 and Discovery Cabin 15 have five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms and a two-car garage. All residents at Spanish Peaks enjoy private fairways, secluded slopes, recreational trails, elegant dining and a 32,000-square-foot clubhouse.
"We were hired to sell two properties on this assignment – one in the Yellowstone Club and one Bidder's Choice in Spanish Peaks. In the end, the auction efforts generated enough bidding to sell an additional Spanish Peaks home and resulted in heightened interest in the communities overall. We're thrilled to announce another successful Concierge auction in Montana and to have found owners who will enjoy these properties for years to come," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions.
