NEW YORK, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based luxury real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions, the leading auction marketplace for high-net-worth buyers and sellers globally, achieved monumental success during the first half of 2015 and is on pace to exceed $1 billion in aggregate sales by the close of the year. In addition to growing its staff over 40 full-time employees and being recognized by the National Auctioneers Association and USA Today as "Best in Show" for Advertising and Public Relations, Concierge Auctions also delivered a 90% sell through rate while producing numerous sales over $10 million – a price category the firm continues to dominate.
"Concierge Auctions has established itself as a preeminent marketplace for buyers and sellers of the world's finest properties. Our consistent growth over the last seven years is a testament to the efficiency of our process versus traditional sales methods for high-end real estate," said Laura Brady, president and founder of Concierge Auctions. "We are no longer a new player, but rather the proven market leader and partner to high-end clients and real estate agents worldwide."
"The Concierge platform allows me to showcase my listings to a global audience," stated John-Mark Mitchell of Mitchell Prime Properties, the top-ranked luxury broker in North Carolina's Piedmont Triad region who has worked alongside Concierge Auctions on several assignments since 2012. "Their reach gives me a competitive advantage, and at the end of the day, our collective efforts achieve the highest returns on a specific timeline."
