Sutton Kersh is celebrating ten years since the establishment of its highly successful auction department.
Sutton Kersh Auctions was established back in 2002 by James Kersh. The leading Merseyside auction house has held seventy property auctions in Liverpool over the last decade, sold over three thousand nine hundred properties and generated total proceeds exceeding £300 million.
To mark the anniversary, Sutton Kersh has produced a special edition catalogue for its next auction which will take place on the 25th October at the Liverpool City Centre Marriott Hotel. The catalogue comprises seventy seven lots and can be viewed at www.suttonkersh.co.uk/auctions-property/.
James Kersh, director at Sutton Kersh and founder of the auction department commented, “From the property boom in 2004 to the bust of the Lehman Brothers in 2008, the property industry has certainly delivered some highs and lows over the last ten years. Sutton Kersh Auctions has not only survived the recent years of uncertainty it has maintained its market share and position as Merseyside's leading auction house throughout, consistently delivering the best results and attracting the largest catalogues in the area and I have a fantastic team to thank for this.”
There have been many highlights but for me the lockout auction in February 2004 probably tops the list. The auction took place in the wake of the announcement that Liverpool would be Capital of Culture 2008. Over a thousand people turned out for the event at the Adelphi Hotel at which one hundred properties sold for over £8.4 million.”
Some other highlights from Sutton Kersh's auction history include: a 'blooming successful auction' in October 2003 at which thirty six properties sold in streets named after flowers in L5; Liverpool's best ever property auction result in April 2004 where two hundred and twenty three properties sold for over £11.4 million; Cathy Holt joining the department in 2008 as auction manageress after twenty years at Venmores; and the Go Superlambanana charity auction at which Sutton Kersh helped generate over £550,000 by auctioning off over seventy Superlambananas in aid of the Lord Mayor's Charities.
Sutton Kersh is now inviting instructions for its final auction of 2012 and offering one third off the entry fee for the first twenty new instructions. The catalogue will close on the 14th November. For more information please call Sutton Kersh Auctions on 0151 207 6315.
