QUEENSBURY, N.Y., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A six-bedroom home on Lake George in Queensbury, New York sold for $1.518 million at a real estate auction on December 5, announced Stuart Mattison, Director of Operations, Concierge Auctions.

The property at 34 Pulver Road, offered by luxury real estate auction company Concierge Auctions (, in cooperation with Select Sotheby's International Realty (, closed in just over two weeks.  The auction outreach efforts attracted website visitors from 16 countries and 33 states, resulting in 57 interested buyer prospects and six registered bidders.

The stunning retreat, with magnificent Lake George views and 168 feet of lake frontage, is one of the area's great hideaways.  Boasting 2,638 square feet of living area and classic Adirondack style, the home has ample room for entertaining large families, while at the same time maintaining its intimate feel and rustic charm.

"The staff at Concierge Auctions embodies the persona that we strive to work with.  This is not just a service provider to us, but a true project partner that invested the requisite time, energy and resources to ensure a successful sale," stated John Burke, Broker/Owner of Select Sotheby's International Realty.    

"It is an absolute differentiator for us in our markets to have the resources to integrate a fast property monetization option for clients who don't want to wait for a traditional buyer to surface," Burke added.  "Our recent Lake George auction result was one percent better than the average sale price in comparison to the original listing price for all lakefront sales reported in the MLS in 2009, which speaks volumes to the possibility for repeat offerings with Concierge Auctions."

"We look forward to expanding our relationship with Select Sotheby's International Realty, and presenting more auction opportunities in Upstate New York in the coming months," Mattison stated.  "The auction process is a great option for luxury property owners seeking to attract qualified buyers and obtain a guaranteed sale within a specified timeframe."
