Eleven years ago, we set out to build a solution for buyers, sellers, and agents to most effectively transact high-end properties—an enhancement to traditional brokerage methods alone. Sellers and agents especially value the time certainty our process offers, being able to set a date of sale and immediately gain direct reach to buyers worldwide. Buyers value being able to instantly browse a curation of top tier properties offered by sellers with market-driven expectations and name their price. Today, we continue to receive more interest than ever and we are more committed than ever to helping our clients get the on-demand results they are looking for, with transparent bidding and easy closings—all in partnership with agents. Since our founding in Florida, we have concluded 40 auctions in the Sunshine State, totaling over $230 million in sales. On page 10 of this issue, we focus on our most recent record-breaking Florida sales—including the highest price in Coral Gables this year and the most expensive home ever sold at auction in the U.S. Peerless properties like these sell on our platform nearly every day. Don’t miss out on any of our current offerings. Relax in a 3,900+ acre haven of natural beauty in Wyoming, enjoy fireside views of stately cedars in California, or retrieve a favorite vintage from the wine cellar in a stone palace in New Jersey. In addition to the 20+ extraordinary properties in this month’s issue, we are proud to announce two upcoming sales focused on some of the hottest luxury markets in the U.S. From August through October, we will showcase a selection of high-end mountain properties. Then in January, we will turn our focus to the sunny climes of Arizona, culminating with a live auction event in Scottsdale. If you have a luxury listing that is a good fit for either of these sales, call us to benefit from the global exposure the properties selected for these sales will receive.

“Our increased activity in the Florida market proves more luxury homeowners are choosing to sell at auction as an on-demand solution in the liquidating of assets on their timeline. Buyers recognize we are the leading marketplace to name their price for high-end property,” said Chad Roffers, chairman of Concierge Auctions. “Ten years ago, we set out to build a predictable, broker-friendly model that’s a win-win-win for sellers, buyers, and agents. Today, we’ve expanded to 40 states and 27 countries and can sell any property in the world in just six weeks.” The recent release of Concierge Auctions’ third-annual “U.S. Luxury Homes Index” —an analysis of the 10 highest property sales in 56 high-end markets around the U.S.—found the top 10 luxury homes in the Miami and Broward County marketplaces lingered on the market for an average of 502 and 605 days, respectively. The majority of the properties took longer than 180 days to sell—627 days (Miami) and 746 days (Broward County)—and achieved

This estate—completed in 2015 and inspired by the Doge’s Palace in Venice—was on the market 522 days prior to the auction before the month-long marketing campaign elicited more than 1,510 buyer prospects, 80 open house tours, 26 qualified showings, and nine total bidders. “My client’s experience with Concierge Auctions was professional and seamless,” said Chad Gray of the Luxury Living Fort Lauderdale group at Compass Florida, who represented the buyer. “The firm delivered impressive results on all fronts, and the auction created the exciting urgency for my client to pursue this property. I look forward to working with Concierge Auctions again in the near future.” 41 Arvida Parkway, previously listed for $68 million, auctioned via Concierge Auctions’ digital marketplace on March 22nd in cooperation with Marc Hameroff and Lourdes Alatriste of Engel & Völkers.

I hired Concierge Auctions because their reach to the most elite buyers across the globe is unsurpassed, and I’ve been equally impressed by the attention to detail and business acumen of their entire organization. If I had the chance to sell this property again, Concierge Auctions would be my first call. They are the best organization in the world to produce the highest price for one-of-a-kind properties in an efficient manner.” Robert Pereira Seller, Hillsboro Beach

A NEW FUTURE Character-building. The satisfaction of knowing you made a difference. These themes are present in the accounts of three Concierge Auctions employees who spent two April days in El Salvador volunteering as home builders as part of the Concierge Auctions Key For Key® program. Over one weekend, the team built two homes in La Aguja, a tiny village just a stone’s throw from the port city of La Libertad. For Charles Russell, business development manager for Concierge Auctions, the best way to register the impact of those two days was the look on Emerson’s face.
“Here was this five-year-old, and by day two he grabbed onto my knee and never left my side,” Russell said of Emerson, the Salvadoran boy he and his co-workers formed a bond with over the course of the trip. Though extremely shy, Emerson’s infectious charm and lively curiosity about Russell and his Concierge Auctions co-workers ensured things never got dull during the long work days. Though he has done his share of traveling, Russell said that the Key For Key ® experience was a personal milestone that will give new meaning—and even urgency— to his work moving forward.
KEY FOR KEY® | 81
It’s my favorite part of the gig, being able to bring people who never would have considered traveling to El Salvador or Nicaragua before, and watching them have that experience for the first time.” Caroline Pinal Co-founder, Giveback Homes™
Because Key For Key ® homes are funded by proceeds from Concierge Auctions sales and via additional donations from buyers, sellers, and agents, the program supercharges the motivation of Concierge Auctions employees to earn new business, said Derek Hawkins, a luxury sales consultant who also went on the April build trip. “It was very eye-opening and inspirational to see the work that we do providing homes for families in need from a firsthand perspective,” said Hawkins. “The lady who my particular group built a home for had two teenage daughters who were there working right alongside us the two days we were there, which was pretty impactful for me.” A HUMANITARIAN PARTNERSHIP

FOR E V E RY HOME WE SELL, WE BUILD A HOME FOR A FA M I LY IN NEED.
In 2017, Concierge Auctions launched the Key For Key ® giving program in partnership with Giveback Homes™ —a social venture that connects real estate professionals with families in need of homes. Since its founding in 2013, Giveback Homes™ has built nearly 400 homes internationally, with Key For Key ® accounting for 180 of those homes. The build trips the company organizes is the primary perkare some of the main perks it offers to its members. “It’s my favorite part of the gig—being able to bring people here who never would have considered travelling to El Salvador or Nicaragua before, and watching them have that experience for the first time,” said Caroline Pinal, co-founder of Giveback Homes™. Prior to starting Giveback Homes™, Pinal and her co-founder, Blake Andrews worked for TOMS ® Shoes, a Los Angeles-based company that pioneered a one-for-one giving model for providing shoes to impoverished people in Nicaragua. Andrews and Pinal had a lightbulb moment: What if that same model could be applied to real estate?
Andrews and Pinal teamed up with a real estate agent friend to build five homes in Nicaragua. From these humble beginnings, Giveback Homes™ has grown into a thriving network of both individual real estate professionals and industry leaders like Concierge Auctions. With Key For Key ® now woven into the Concierge Auctions company culture, participation in its build trips is now a spiritual and emotional touchstone for employees. What began as an innovative way for the largest luxury real estate marketplace in the world to give something back, has grown into a cornerstone of its brand identity. Emily McMenamin, a marketing account manager at Concierge Auctions, was new to the company in June 2018. At first, she was amazed by how much time she was asked to spend packaging and sending thank-you gifts to agents, buyers, and sellers who contributed to the program. Once she came to fully appreciate the value of the Key For Key ® program, she too was inspired to go on her first build trip. “It honestly is very different when you actually go there and see it for yourself,” said McMenamin. “You meet the people there, and they’re very kind and welcoming.” B E YO N D T E A M B U I L D I N G The building trips are a chance to connect with coworkers outside an office setting. Every day during mealtime, Caroline Pinal of Giveback Homes™ asks the volunteers to share stories of the day—an exercise that helps to foster group unity. These sharing sessions are an emotional catharsis as well as a powerful bonding activity.
“Every time someone told a story they would burst into tears,” said Russell. “In sharing these stories, everyone was just kind of stripped down to the bone.”
KEY FOR KEY® | 83
“In my 25-year career I’ve had every team-building-type exercise,” said Russell. “Nothing comes remotely close to this.” Since returning, Russell and colleagues continue to share memories via an ongoing chat group. “The team I went with kind of became my family,” said Emily McMenamin. “Going through the experience together linked us in empathy and gratefulness.” BUILDING FOR GOOD The ultimate reward for Key For Key ® participants is the program’s most tangible good: a finished home. Turning over the keys to the families and seeing how visibly moved they were is a memory that Derek Hawkins says he will cherish. “It really hit home that this work is important and that it is impacting lives,” said Hawkins. “It will be with me for the rest of my life.” In that way, the Key For Key® program brings full circle what life in the real estate business can mean for those who care about social impact. At one end, to be part of a thriving business that facilitates the sale of luxury homes. And, at the other, reinvesting the fruits of that enterprise in a way that makes the world a little bit more humane and equitable for the Emersons of the world and their families.

O U R K E Y FO R K E Y® GIVING PROGRAM Concierge Auctions believes that every business has a responsibility to make a positive impact on the world. In partnership with Giveback Homes™, our Key For Key ® giving model guarantees that a new home will be built for a family in need for every property we sell. Our goal is to transform the lives of families through the empowerment and financial stability that comes with homeownership. Key For Key ® would not be possible without your support. Each donation is made on behalf of the seller, buyer, bidders, and agents— and we invite clients to join us by donating alongside their corresponding sale, or at ConciergeKeyForKey.com.

WHY DO HIGH-END PROPERTY SELLERS, AG E N T S , A N D B U Y E R S C H O O S E A U C T I O N ?
A R E N ’ T A U C T I O N S O N LY F O R DISTRESSED PROPERTIES?
Our auction platform enables sellers and agents to name the timing and terms of the sale. We execute a targeted marketing and sales campaign, activate qualified bidders, and generate a transaction in 60 days—and the agents still earn their commissions. For buyers, we curate inventory of the world’s best properties from realistic sellers, with assurance that they pay a fair price—only one bid above the next highest bidder.
No. Our typical seller is well capitalized and not in a distressed situation. They are choosing auction to help accomplish their goals within their timeframe. We are solely focused on high-end properties.
HOW DO I KNOW IF AUCTION IS RIGHT FOR MY CLIENT AND ME? Auctions are ideal for selling one-of-a-kind, incomparable properties. Every market has a threshold above which homes are more difficult to monetize. The typical tools of price reductions, prolonged advertising, and PR exposure can hurt more than help the outcome of sale. For $5M+ homes, price has little bearing on demand, and price reductions are ineffective.
A R E AG E N T S P R OT E C T E D ? Yes. We have never conducted an auction without a listing agent involved and a commission offered to a buyer’s agent. W H Y S H O U L D I C H O O S E TO A U C T I O N I N S T E A D O F S E L L T R A D I T I O N A L LY ? We see auction as an added tool rather than an alternative. The traditional brokerage model has limitations. In the ultra-luxury realm, the buyer pool is limited and properties simply aren’t very liquid, even in healthy market conditions. Auctions bring the market to the buying opportunity and enable a timely resolution.
FA Q | 8 5
HOW DOES THE AUCTION PROCESS WORK?
D O YO U AC C E P T P R E - A U C T I O N O F F E R S ?
Typically, our properties are marketed for four to five weeks prior to the auction date. We deploy a dedicated, on-site Project Sales Manager to work alongside the listing agent, educate potential bidders about the auction, and facilitate registrations. The properties are available daily for potential bidders to preview and conduct inspections. Diligence is encouraged, as all sales are “as-is,” without contingencies. The Terms and Conditions of Sale, Purchase Contract, and available property documents can be downloaded from each property page on ConciergeAuctions.com.
It is not uncommon to receive pre-auction offers. All offers received prior to auction are presented for consideration.
W H AT A R E T H E D I F F E R E N T A U C T I O N F O R M AT S T H AT YO U U S E ? We use two auction formats. Without Reserve: There is no minimum bid to purchase. Reserve: Will sell at or above a pre-determined price threshold. W H E R E D O E S T H E A U C T I O N TA K E P L AC E ? Our auctions are conducted in one of three ways: Digital Marketplace and App—The majority of our auctions are conducted on our digital bidding marketplace, available via ConciergeAuctions.com or via our app. Both allow buyers to participate in our auctions in real-time from anywhere in the world. Bidders may watch bids live, and/or in conjunction with a phone or proxy representative. On-Site: the “live” auction will be conducted at the property or a nearby venue. Bidders may participate via proxy, by phone, on our digital marketplace, ConciergeAuctions.com, or via our app. Portfolio Sale: the property will be auctioned alongside other properties, as part of a collection. W H AT D O E S I T C O S T ? We do not charge any upfront fees for sellers. Agents who bring a winning bidder receive cooperating broker commissions. Depending on the particulars, we may recommend an opening bid incentive that encourages buyers to submit an opening bid prior to the opening of an auction. The buyer pays an additional premium on top of the high bid. The seller pays the title search and title insurance. The buyer pays any applicable transfer taxes. See the individual Terms and Conditions of each auction for more details.
