New York-based luxury real estate auction firm Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce its sale of the Blue Sky Lodge, a premier mountain estate nestled amongst the Gore Mountain Range in Vail, Colorado. The auction of the property, held in cooperation with Karen Gilbert of Ascent Sotheby’s International Realty, attracted buyers from around the world who were ready to strap on their skis and hit the fresh powder at Vail Ski Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort, both only a few minutes away. The winning bidder – and now lucky owner – is from Texas.
“I enjoyed the ability to control the timing of the sale of my property via auction,” stated the seller, Dr. Gary Weiss. “I’m confident that Concierge’s marketing efforts showcased the property globally, ensuring the widest pool of potential buyers.”
In only seven weeks, Concierge Auctions’ marketing campaign drew over 2,500 website visits from 49 US states (led by California,Colorado, Texas and Florida) and 58 international countries (led by Canada, Estonia, the UK and France) and generated 43 showings. The videos portraying the property and lifestyle were played over 20,000 times.
At 7,000 square feet, the eight-bedroom Blue Sky Lodge is grand and private, surrounded by thousands of acres of National Forest. Here, you can hide away under the snowcapped mountains, yet its proximity to town puts everything you’ll ever need at your fingertips.
“2014 was Concierge Auctions’ seventh consecutive year of record-breaking sales volume, and we were thrilled to begin 2015 with the momentum of this sale,” stated the firm’s president, Laura Brady. “Our expertise in auctioning premier properties throughout the Rocky Mountains is unprecedented. Since 2009 we’ve been gathering the most interested and capable buyers of America’s greatest ski homes. And, we’re excited to continue matching them with the best buying opportunities.”
