"I've witnessed the remarkable success that Concierge Auctions has achieved in the U.S. and know there is ripe potential for similar impact throughout Europe," said Smith. "Currently, no European company demonstrates a sophistication and skill akin to Concierge. Europe has some truly iconic locations, sought-after by a broad international clientele. We have plenty of sellers who will benefit from their platform — and buyers who will be delighted as a result."
Concierge has plans to set up auctions for items aside from luxury real estate, according to Laura Brady, president of the auction house.
"Not only is Europe celebrated for its historic and exquisite estates, but Europeans are also familiar with auctions of other fine, one-of-a-kind assets — art, antiquities and jewelry. We are confident that our skilled auction team, along with our global database of high-net-worth buyers, will be a welcomed introduction," said Ms. Brady.
