1513099568SCOTTSDALE, AZ - January might be known as the Car Auction month in the Valley of the Sun, but starting in 2018 – the public will have a chance to get involved with a new auction hitting the high-end real estate market. 

Private Client Group at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty is teaming up with Concierge Auctions to host a one-of-a-kind luxury home auction.

The LIVE Auction will be held on Wednesday, January 31st, 2018 at the Phoenician Resort in Phoenix, starting at 10:00 a.m. Pre-Qualified & Registered bidders from around the globe will bid in person or on their Smart Phones and IPads; for those who don't own or use smart devices, their bid will be taken over the phone.

Private Client Group is currently seeking high-end luxury properties located within the Phoenix Metropolitan area, not currently being represented by an outside brokerage, that are willing to be sold As Is for cash without conditions. 

To participate - the properties must be a non-distressed luxury residential real estate above $2 million with little to no debt and don’t have to sell, but are tired of waiting for the market to come back. The auction is designed for sellers who have identified value in “time” and would prefer “certainty” and still prefer a “White glove, high touch” experience. 

“For decades, we have witnessed the success at Sotheby’s Auction House and that is exactly what we are attempting to do here at the end of January in Phoenix,” said Frank Aazami, founder of Private Client Group at Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty. “Auctions can successfully sell the finer tangibles in life. Our objective is to strike a conversation, motivate people who have been sitting on the fence and get their property sold in the process.”

Aazami adds the end of January should prove to be a fruitful time for the auction as many savvy auction buyers attending Barrett-Jackson, RM Car Auction and the Phoenix Open are still in town.
