On a delightful early summer afternoon in Michigan, twelve properly registered bidders came forward in hushed anticipation to bid on the “Jewel of Bay Harbor.” After holding a charity auction for the Bay Harbor Foundation, where a bottle of Veuve Clicquot was sold for $6,000, everyone’s attention then turned to the estate auction.  All were ready to bid and buy!

The anticipation was palpable. The back and forth of bids was riveting, and then, after approximately 20 minutes, the final bid was called and the auctioneer proclaimed the property “SOLD!”

After listing with the most prestigious real estate office in the area with no results, the Grand Estates team did in 60 days what hadn’t been done in over 18 months:  get it sold. The whole team demonstrated that they cared about the outcome and worked tirelessly exclusively for us and they delivered from the get go” stated the seller. “Bottom line, I think they did a great job for our family!”

The broker of record, Rik Lobenherz of Berkshire Hathaway, stated, “Grand Estates produced a great result for the seller and truly delivered. Like us, they work very hard to deliver the best result for their sellers and we look forward to partnering with them again very soon.”

Buyers were initially engaged through GEA’s comprehensive global marketing campaign.  The concentrated marketing program for this home generated over twenty three thousand (23,000) visits to the Bay Harbor auction website, coming from as far away as Malaysia, Austria, France, Canada, Turkey and beyond.  There were 177 inquiries, 49 group previews/tours of the property and 12 qualified registered bidders on site or bidding via phone on auction day. Closing is scheduled to occur within 9 days of the auction.
