Robinson & Hall’s February and April auctions have seen 36 lots sold or the 38 offered, representing a 95 per cent success rate for the auctioneer. It comes as fellow franchises of Auction House UK announce that the first three months of 2021 have been the best-ever in the 14-year history of the group.
Charles Lovell, Head of Auction House Robinson & Hall, said: “These are the sorts of figures which will really make our competitors sit up and take notice! Auction House has turned into the F1 of property auctioneers – and the truth is, there’s plenty of mileage left in the tank!
“This would be a superb set of figures in conventional times but after having to deal with a global pandemic for the past twelve months, they are nothing less than exceptional.
“A year ago, who would have thought that a business which used to rely on holding room auctions could continue to flourish through three national lockdowns and a ban on people gathering together? It’s incredible to see how our teams have not only adapted to the new way of working, they have positively embraced it, with online auctions and live stream sales instantly gathering momentum.”
