The award was made by the Directors of Intelligent Auction Services, better known as Iam Sold, with whom DB Roberts act in conjunction.
D B Roberts Sales Director, Matt Hill, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted to have this recognition, after a record breaking year of sales of property by auction during 2017. Many people still think that sales by auction all take place in large salerooms, with bidders having to be in the room, as seen in the TV services ‘Homes Under The Hammer’, but nothing could be further from reality.
‘A large proportion of our auction sales are achieved through what we call the modern method of auction, which is much closer to buying and selling through an on-line auction site such as e-Bay, with which most people are familiar. Buyers can bid on line, or by phone from their own home or workplace and still have time to make their mortgage arrangements just as in a traditional private treaty sale. Many of our successful buyers have commented on how simple and straightforward the whole process is.
‘Sellers love the modern method because they are certain of achieving the best price in the marketplace with the added benefit of a definite timescale and a committed buyer; best of all, with the modern method of auction there are no listing fees or commission payable by the seller. Why use an on-line agent, who still charges you whether your house is sold or not?
Iam Sold Managing Director, Jamie Cooke, added: ‘We love working with D B Roberts because not only do they give great help and advice to buyers and sellers, but also their marketing and promotion of the properties locally and nationally ensures a high level of interest and consequently a great result. This award is richly deserved by the DB Roberts team and we are looking forward to an even more successful 2018.
