SDL Auctions North West has appointed a top regional valuer to lead the team. Andy Thompson, with 12 years in property auctions in the north west, is now busy securing entries for the first Manchester-based auction on 13th July at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Andy joins from Edward Mellor Auctions of Stockport, where he established his reputation as one of the region’s top property auction experts – winning the Rising Star Award in The Negotiator Awards 2016.
The SDL Auctions North West move into Manchester follows its first auction in Bolton in April and comes after the national network topped more than £45m in sales so far this year.
Rory Daly, Chief Executive and Auctioneer at SDL Auctions, said, “Due to the success of our first north west auction, we’re now moving into a bigger venue in Manchester to consolidate our operations across the region.
“When Andy won his Rising Star award last year, this was sponsored by SDL Auctions and I actually presented the award to him, so it’s quite fitting that he’s now joining our team.” Andy, aged 30, who lives in Hazel Grove in Stockport, said, “I’m really pleased to be joining SDL Auctions North West and I’m confident that we can quickly become dominant in this area.”
