Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

Bond Wolfe Auctions is Birmingham’s No.1 auction house and staff at Bond Wolfe Auctions are celebrating becoming Birmingham’s top auctioneer after just six months.

Chief executive Gurpreet Bassi said their first three auctions had established them as the region’s top auctioneer “by some distance”.

From a standing start in January, Bond Wolfe Auctions has already this year offered 350 lots, more than any other auctioneer in Birmingham. This includes properties across the East and West Midlands and as far afield as Wales and Scotland.

The first three auctions have raised nearly £39 million in sales – more than double its nearest competitor.

“We are delighted to have recorded a hat trick of auctions with more than 110 lots in each with an average sales success rate of 85% which is well above the national average.

“We have recruited 17 members of staff with over 300 years’ combined service and our auctions are conducted by two of the most experienced auctioneers in the UK – and it shows!”

Earlier this year, Bond Wolfe Auctions was appointed by Birmingham City Council and is now offering the city council’s residential and commercial property and land that is surplus to requirements.

Mr Bassi said: “In this way we are helping to bring redundant land and buildings back into use and this also leads to an increase in rates being paid to Birmingham City Council, both residentially and commercially.

“It’s a win for Birmingham and provides business opportunities for our auction clients.”

The commercial side of Bond Wolfe Auctions has also got off to a flying start with lots offered including former banks, offices and industrial lots across the Midlands and beyond.

In the next auction at Aston Villa FC on Tuesday 10 September at 10.30am, Bond Wolfe Auctions has been instructed by West Midlands Police to offer three former police stations.

Bond Wolfe Auctions’ managing director Ian Tudor said they were experiencing strong interest in commercial opportunities across the country.

“Auctions provide a fast route to a sale, whether for insolvency practitioners looking to maximise their returns on assets, businesses looking to dispose of redundant stock or private individuals.

“We are keen to talk to anyone who has property on their hands that would attract keen interest at auction and we anticipate that the further development of HS2 and work around the Commonwealth Games locations will lead to further opportunities.”

The focus now switches to Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next sale on Tuesday 10 September at 10.30am at the regular venue of the Holte Suite at Aston Villa FC. Anyone with properties for sale in future auctions should contact [email protected] or call 0121 312 1212.
