Gascoigne Halman have a thriving Auction Department, which like the company, has evolved from humble beginnings in 1990. In the early days the company offered a bespoke Auction service, auctioning select properties throughout the county, as and when they arose.
Over the years word spread, regarding the expertise and local knowledge the company brought to the market, and the Auction Department flourished into what it is today. The Auction Department works closely with all 18 sales offices, covering the substantial area of South Manchester and Cheshire, auctioning properties as far as North Manchester, as far South as Congleton, as far East as Whaley Bridge and as far West as Warrington, and all areas in between.
The company now holds Auctions at regular intervals on specified dates throughout the year at the prestigious Cottons Hotel & Spa in Knutsford. This venue has been carefully and specifically chosen, to be central to all the offices and provide easy access for clients and prospective purchasers.
The Auction Department is headed up by Nick Longworth, who has over 25 years experience in Estate Agency and over 15 years in Residential Sales Auctions, as well as having a growing reputation for charitable work, including a number of Charity Auctions for local schools and businesses.
The Auction Department also takes advantage of the company’s up to the minute electronic advances, with extensive mailing lists for the Auction Catalogue, as well as a digital version available through email.
Taking a property to Auction could not be easier, especially for purchasers, as with our telephone and proxy bidding, prospective buyers do not even have to attend the Auction room on the day. We also take care of all signing of contracts and dealing with deposits, alleviating the stresses and strains for vendors and their solicitors.
If you feel you have a property that is suitable for Auction, please contact any one of our offices and with the Auctioneer being based at the Macclesfield Office, we will be happy to talk through the complete process, including advice on the suitability of your particular property for sale by Auction.
