The SDL Auctions team pulled together in a marathon team effort for the company’s first ever national property auction, which raised £7.7 million for sellers.
Held behind closed doors to maintain social distancing rules, SDL Auctions’ first national property auction was led by Managing Director and Auctioneer Andrew Parker, who worked through a catalogue of 115 lots in a mammoth seven-hour session.
The auction got off to a lively start with some eager bidding for a house in Nottingham.
It was a huge team effort, I couldn’t be more proud of every staff member who made our first national auction a huge success.
A bay-fronted property in Beeston (below), requires full refurbishment but has potential, sold for £235,000 from a guide of £135,000+ and a bungalow in Staffordshire (right) sold for £130,000 from a guide of £50,000+.
Working from the auction studio were Andrew and his wife, Rachael, Regional Property Manager for the East Midlands, with his son, Elliott, managing internet bids. Andrew said, “It was a huge team effort and I couldn’t be more proud of every staff member who pulled together to make our first national property auction a huge success. A marathon session with 100 lots, which confirmed our belief that we are providing a valuable service to sellers. Not everyone can wait until the crisis passes, so we are proud to keep the auctions industry moving”.
