Concierge Auctions, the nation’s foremost luxury real estate auction firm, has promoted Mark Hughes to lead the company’s client services efforts in the tri-state region.
During the last 18 months, Mark has been originating business nationally, and his new role will encompass broader commitments to supporting key luxury markets in the US on a regional level. Hughes will report to Chad Roffers, Head of Client Services, and will be responsible for sourcing, underwriting and executing auction opportunities in the tri-state region.
Mark Hughes is a former Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate owner and broker, as well as being a published industry author and accomplished real estate speaker. He has a proven track record within the luxury housing market of delivering multimillion dollar results and is consistently ranked in the top 1% of Realtors worldwide for sales.
Speaking of his promotion Hughes said “For the past three years I have watched Concierge’s growth and successes closely, and there is no doubt their program is unique and proven-a breath of fresh, invigorating air to real estate markets where there is otherwise no traction.”
CEO George Graham says “It is exciting to embark upon this regional focus, which has been in our company plan for over a year. As we continue to produce stellar results with successful auctions nationwide, our platform is growing in popularity. This regionalization will enable us to enhance relationships with the local brokerage community and meet the heightened demand from high-end property owners searching for the certainty of a sale by a particular date.”
Concierges Auctions is a preferred auction provider to Sotheby’s International Realty, as well as other luxury brokerage firms nationwide. It combines the latest technologies and marketing programs with experienced personnel, generating maximum value for Premier properties through “live” competition. The company has conducted auctions in 15 states so far this year, which is an increase from 10 states in 2010 and five in 2009, and has managed to set a number of record prices.
