New property auction business for Manchester’s Landwood Group
Chartered surveyors firm Landwood Group is setting up a property auction business.
The new venture, Landwood Property Auctions, will host a series of both traditional and online auctions throughout 2018 as it secures buyers for commercial and residential properties and land.
James Ashworth, from the management team of auctioneers Pugh & Co, joined the company in the role of director.
James said: “We will constantly develop innovative ways of delivering auction services that fit with modern, ever-changing client and buyer requirements.
“Covering all types of property auctions from traditional in-room to online only, incorporating both unconditional and conditional sales, we will also bring the benefits of auction to disposal strategies blended with private treaty sales, offering clients a truly holistic approach.”
He added: “Underpinning this will be a modern approach to marketing, embracing digital and social media platforms to effectively target buyers across any part of the UK and beyond.”
Speaking further, James said the plan is for the firm to hold its first auction in the spring.
Mark Bailey of Manchester-based Landwood Group commented: “This is an exciting new venture for Landwood.
“We believe we can bring something different to the market place by offering a dynamic, proactive and fresh approach to the property auction sector in the region”
He continued: “We are delighted to have appointed James as a director. The new property auction team has an excellent track record of delivering results across all property sectors. They have the knowledge, the experience and reputation to ensure the business gets off to a successful start.”
