Property is our passion and property auction is our game

The world is changing, and our lives are becoming ‘overwhelmed’ by mounting work pressures, busy social calendars and financial worries.

As everyone is aware, selling property is one of the biggest strains and while up to 50% of private treaty sales fall through, we must consider other alternatives.

Here at Connect UK Auctions, we put you first, which means once we have agreed a sale on your property, there is no chance of a fall through.

With one dedicated point of contact, Connect UK Auctions will become your dependable pair of hands.

Being specialists in our field, we have accomplished and are proud of our successful results, as well as long-term client relationships that we have developed over the years.

Here to work for you, we will appoint you a dedicated property auction manager ready to work extremely hard to achieve the maximum price for your property in the shortest possible time.

Managing Director and CEO

Having graduated as a surveyor in the 90’s, I have been involved in setting up and managing several Estate and Investment agencies over the years. However. My aim as a CEO and a managing director is to make sure that all our buyers and sellers have great experience during their transaction and above all, feel that they are in safe hands.

Director

I was born and bread property as long as I remember. Although youthful in looks, I have more than a decade experience in property sales and management which is useful in guiding both sellers and buyers in achieving their ultimate goal. The best thing about the property business is the variety of people that I meet on a daily basis.

Director

It is fair to say, I have an absolute passion for property!! Graduating from Kingston upon Thames, University, with a degree in surveying, I have spent the last twenty years successfully selling every type of property imaginable. The auction avenue offers all sorts of gems, from old water towers, disused railway stations to your more straight forward private residence. With so much on offer its impossible to not be passionate about one’s work. I strive to provide every client with the same outstanding service and results, however big or small the lot.

Auctioneer

I’ve always been a bit of an entrepreneur. As a child I raised pocket money washing cars and collecting rain water to sell to the neighbours for their gardening. I’m now known for my TV exposure with the likes of ‘Bargain Hunt’ and ‘Flog It,’ but growing recognition of my antique expertise served to convince me that was the time to set up my own business – and this was when Auctioneers and Valuers was born. Since then my business has gone from strength to strength but I was drawn to Connect UK Auctions as their ideas and motivation to offer Connect Realtime was admirable. Their auctions offer something no other can and I am excited to be a part of that.

Senior Property Co-ordinator

After 10 years as a dental nurse I learnt my heart wasn’t in it anymore. Property is all I know and love now and I have spent the last 18 years working my way up through the industry. There is so much to see and working in a close nit team has definitely proved the move was the best decision I’d ever made.

Marketing

Property provides so much opportunity and auctions provide even more. My younger self was always airport based so I took a gamble when delving into property admin and then management. It was the best risk I’d ever taken and it sure paid off. Moving over to auctions has proved every day is different and the stories behind each individual’s property journeys has me continuously gripped. After almost 5 years I look forward too many more.

I have in the past publicised investment opportunities within land and property. I now get excited over the potential opportunities that come from partnering with like-minded individuals and businesses, offering our professional services whilst adding value to their own customer base. I am also keen to explore ways to create awareness of the brand and its unique business proposition.

Seller FAQs

Why auction?

Three reasons: Maximum price, speed and security.

Will I get full price for my property?

Yes. Selling at auction always means you will get the true value of any property. Yes the buyer is paying your fees but that does NOT mean you will get less for your property – you are simply saving a sales fee.

What properties are sold at auction?

Everything and anything. We have sold terraces, bungalows, unique properties, family detached houses, penthouse apartments, commercial units, businesses, new build properties and plots on behalf of builders.

Can I control the selling price?

Yes, you have complete control when setting the reserve price.
