Concierge Auctions Names Real Estate Industry Leaders To 2019 Agent Advisory Board

Top-ranked real estate agents and brokers from across the globe provide guidance to leading luxury real estate marketplace

NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, the world record holder for luxury homes sold at auction, has announced appointees to its 2019 Agent Advisory Board. This group of esteemed top agents and brokers, who have billions of dollars combined in luxury sales from across the globe, represent a think tank on the state of luxury real estate sales and marketing.

The board will meet quarterly to share insights and guide Concierge Auctions particularly with its relationship to the brokerage community, with a focus on agent-specific education, tools, and technology. The first meeting took place earlier this year at the Montage Los Cabos in Cabos San Lucas, Mexico. By sharing their collective wisdom, these real estate leaders will become a resource for agents and brokers who are seeking information on the auction process. Board members serve as ambassadors on behalf of Concierge Auctions in their communities as well as at industry events.

"Together, these 10 individuals garnered over $3 billion in luxury real estate sales in 2018, with several of these agents and brokers setting records in their states. Of note, Paul Benson of Engel & Völkers sold the most expensive property in Utah, and Matt Beall's Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers broke a record for the highest priced sale ever in Hawaii. Tapping the collective knowledge of such an esteemed group of individuals is a true honor," said Concierge Auctions Founder and President Laura Brady. "In our business, information and relationships are everything, and each of these agents and brokers represent the best of the best in not only their marketplaces, but also around the world."
