Hassford Gulch, which went under contract following a live auction on Monday in cooperation with Cathy Benson and Channing Boucher of Benson Sotheby's International Realty, is an expansive residence located in Crested Butte, Colorado.

In addition to the successful auction conducted in Crested Butte, four 35+ acre properties went under contract on Wednesday following the live auction of Teton Canyon Ranch.

Andrea Loban of Grand Targhee Realty and Ann Goodell of Sage Realty Group represented two of the buyers. 

Unique attributes of the four Teton Canyon Ranch properties include:

  • Spectacular views that will never be touched by development, as the properties are surrounded on three sides by National Forest

  • 25+ showings
  • 13 qualified bidders from 8 states: FL, NV, MN, CA, IL, UT, WY and GA

Listing agent for Teton Canyon Ranch, Daniel T. Willert, stated: "As an agent, it's been a pleasure to partner with Concierge Auctions. They're renowned in the luxury real estate industry for their speed and professionalism. They have a great track record in Jackson Hole, having generated some of the region's most notable sales in the past five years."

"At Concierge Auctions, we know how to convey a property's special story and make sure that it reaches the eyes and ears of prospective buyers everywhere," said Laura Brady, Founder and President of Concierge Auctions.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
