Through its platform, our agents now have the capability to offer a proactive, time-certain solution to clients in the buying and selling of the world’s most distinctive properties.”

Charlie Smith, European Advisor of Concierge Auctions, called the partnership a “strategic decision” for his company, which was founded 11 years ago as an enhancement to traditional brokerage methods to effectively transact high-end properties. “Today is an exciting time for the industry, as we continue to receive more interest than ever from buyers, sellers, and agents for our on-demand solution,” he said.
