NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Having auctioned unique luxury properties across 23 US states, typically valued between $2.5 million and $20 million, Concierge Auctions is no stranger to success. Since its inception in 2008, the firm has consistently grown its geographic presence while increasing the standard of quality and distinction in the properties it represents. 2012 proved a continuation of this trend and marked a banner year for the organization, as in only 12 months Concierge executed auctions in 15 states, generated an average sale price of $3.8 million and produced a number of notable transactions.

"2012 was a thrilling year for us. Our inquiries from notable, high net worth and non-distressed sellers continue to increase, as they realize that our process delivers the highest value for their unique assets — on their terms. These clients value our personalized, white-glove service, which includes a custom marketing, sales and public relations outreach plan for every assignment; an expert project management team with the utmost knowledge of luxury properties and discerning clientele; and consistent, detailed communication throughout the auction process," stated President Laura Brady. "Our marketing and public relations teams are expanding our global reach with innovative techniques including precisely-targeted digital and online initiatives. In turn, we have secured more consistent, qualified buyers and agents worldwide who follow our auctions and trust our selection of quality assets." 

Concierge's targeted sales and marketing campaigns are proving increasingly successful at attracting interest from around the globe and are growing the firm's database of luxury buyers and agents by the minute. The database currently totals over 40,000 notable buyer contacts including Fortune 500 executives, CEOs, entrepreneurs and business advisors, and over 100,000 real estate agents worldwide.

"From public relations exposure including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNBC, Inside Edition and more; to creative events such as a dinner with Sotheby's International Realty owners from around the world and exclusive preview tours attracting over 500 attendees; to widespread global advertising, our outreach for this auction was unbelievable," stated Eleazer. "No stone was unturned." "We spent over a year researching auction firms before choosing to work with Concierge," stated the seller, Alan Goldfield. "Ultimately I selected Concierge because they are the most skilled firm in the country in dealing with ultra-luxury homes, and their entire team is impressive."
