The Connacht Property Auction finished their year of public auctions on a high note with a 100% success rate at last Thursday’s public auction.
The auction was held in The Menlo Park Hotel, Galway on Thursday November 23 and the auction team noted a significant increase in viewings in the lead up and sold an impressive 11 out of the 11 properties.
Brian Christy, Sales Manager for The Connacht Property Auction commented; “All the team at the Connacht Property Auction are delighted to have achieved a clean sweep at what was our last auction event of 2017.
“It is a feat that is not achieved too often at multi lot auction events such as ours.
“We are now gearing up to 2018 and are taking entries already for our first public auction event of the New Year on February 20.”
Mr. Christy, also noted “the success of our auctions is down to the large marketing campaign we undertake in Ireland and abroad while also working in close partnership with local auctioneers.
“We are the only auction company in Ireland who do not have any entry or marketing fees to enter a property into auction, so the pressure is on us to ensure we get results for our clients.”
