The market is tricky – how we sold £870 million in the last 12 months

This latest Allsop propchat podcast reviews the last 12 months in the auction market and how Allsop’s two auction teams combined to raise £870 million between them from the sale of 1860 lots.

George Walker and Richard Adamson draw on their combined 50 years experience in the auction market to explain some of its foibles and discuss the essential steps in the process required to achieve sales, including the mantra of “fact not fiction”  in the most turbulent of markets.

The discussion is illustrated with some examples of recent sales and buyers who are part of this lively market.
