WAIKOLOA, Hawaii, March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions announces the successful auction of a luxury Waikoloa Beach Resort residence with 150 feet of secluded beach front located at 69-1065 Kolea Kai Circle. The sale was conducted in cooperation with Century 21 All Islands.
Concierge Auctions' extensive global outreach produced an impressive 50+ showings and 11 bidders from Canada, California, Kansas, Minnesota and Hawaii. The precisely-controlled campaign of internet, print and direct marketing, combined with aggressive sales efforts, broker outreach, and public relations, generated more than 4,600 visits to the auction website from all US states and 58 international countries (led by Canada, Japan, Germany and the United Kingdom).
"I appreciate the efforts of both the Concierge Auctions and Century 21 All Islands teams towards making this auction a success," stated Dr. Harry White, seller of 69-1065 Kolea Kai Circle. "The interest generated was phenomenal, and more prospects viewed the home in four weeks than had in the entire two years prior. I am thankful to everyone involved and hopeful that the home will bring much happiness to its new owners."
Amenities of the 1,350-acre Waikoloa Beach Resort include ocean sports activities, a classic Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course and a links-style course designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, preserved cultural sites, world-class hotels such as the Hilton Waikoloa Village and the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, and the famed Kings Shops and Queens Marketplace. The resort is located approximately 25 miles north of Kona on the Big Island's sunny Kohala Coast, which means "cherished land" in Hawaiian, and enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Embraced by the balmy, sweet-scented Pacific Ocean trade winds, Kona is famous for sport fishing, snorkeling, gorgeous sunsets and its unrivaled Kona coffee.
"Concierge Auctions has found great success with luxury property auctions throughout Hawaii, and we are pleased to have accomplished our first sale in the Waikoloa Beach Resort," stated Laura Brady, VP of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "This sale marks over $55 million in Hawaiian properties sold, including properties in other exclusive communities on the Big Island, such as the Hualalai Resort, home to the Four Seasons Hualalai, where we sold Cher's residence for $8.72 million, and Kuki'o, where last year alone we sold five premier properties, and over ten premier properties on Kauai.
