LOCAL LAUNCH FOR LEADING AUCTIONS GROUP
Auction House, the fastest growing and most successful regional auctions group, is opening in Warwickshire. Working with well-known estate agents Hawkins, Auction House has planned its first auction for 20th September and is currently taking entries for its first event to be held in the Ricoh Arena.
Trading locally as Auction House Hawkins and with its auctions office in Nuneaton, the business is to be led by Senior Partner and Chartered Surveyor Roy Hawkins. Commenting on his plans, Roy said, “The Auction House network is already very successful in other parts of the country, and the leading Auctioneer across many counties. Already this year Auction House has sold over 1,000 lots under the hammer and is firmly established as the second largest Auctioneer in the UK. We will be operating the Warwickshire territory for Auction House, and introducing their professional auction process locally. Selling by auction is becoming increasingly popular with more and more vendors turning to its more certain and more speedy route to market. Auction House achieves a higher success rate than other regional auctioneers, and so far this year has sold over 80% of all properties offered in their auction rooms. I believe that this new service will appeal to sellers in the Coventry, Rugby, Nuneaton and Bedworth areas and to buyers who are seeking to purchase keenly priced property.”
Auction House has more auction rooms and holds more auctions than any other Auctioneer; it specialises in selling residential, investment and commercial lots and is one of the fastest growing companies in the property sector. Speaking on behalf of parent company Auction House UK, leading Auctioneer and Director Bryan Baxter said, “ We are delighted that Roy Hawkins and his team have joined our national network, the Hawkins Estate Agency brand is highly regarded and has a strong local following. Roy is also an experienced Auctioneer and brings great skill and widespread local knowledge to the new business. Our aim is to make Auction House Hawkins the Auctioneer of choice in the Warwickshire area. We firmly believe that local property should be auctioned in the region rather than from central London or central Birmingham – we know that this service is required locally and wish it every success going forward.”
