In service to high-end buyers and sellers across the world, Grand Estates Auction Company has facilitated the sale of numerous prominent luxury properties in its 15-year history. The company focuses on unique properties with no comparable residences in the area, a situation that challenges many traditional real estate sellers. Grand Estates, by contrast, leverages its expertise in assessing customized homes and luxury locations to draw record-setting and near-record prices for sellers. Its buyers come from Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and bidders present potential prices both in-person and through the company’s phone systems. Many of the properties marketed by Grand Estates feature breathtaking waterfront and mountain views in the top real estate markets on the continent. Other properties bring buyers to up-and-coming or high-potential markets. The majority of the company’s auctions follow the absolute format, which sets no minimum bid or reserve, yet closing prices regularly extend well into seven-figure totals.
