Sperry Van Ness is pushing its auction services program nationwide, adding location and regional advisors in cities across the United States—and it all starts in Florida.
Jerry Anderson, executive managing director of SVN Auction Services, is spearheading the project from his Miami office.
SVN claims it’s breaking from the traditional commercial real estate auction model—one it says typically features auctioneer generalists trying to cover large swaths of territory and serve a wide range of clients. By contrast, the firm says its auction services group is executing a strategy focused on localization, precision, and depth.
“SVN Auction Services understands that all real estate is local, and that it’s crucial to bring the basic fundamentals back to commercial real estate and put the clients’ interest first—and that’s what we’re doing,” Jerry Anderson, executive managing director of SVN Auction Services, told GlobeSt.com. “We’re precisely matching our Sperry Van Ness auction Advisors—professionals who live and breathe the local market—to clients’ specific needs.”
As part of its national expansion, SVN is on the hunt for auction professionals who fit into this culture. Currently, the team includes advisors in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and Deep South markets. One of Anderson’s goals is to fill in markets on the West Coast and Northeast.
SVN’s Auction Services include rapid asset resolution and 30-day countdown asset sales to wide area and high impact/high promotion events. The team taps technology platforms that include property vaults, contact management, online bidding, video webcast, and SEO to get the job done. The Auction Services platform also leverages the firm’s 800-plus commercial real estate advisors around the country, which the firm says helps move assets in accelerated timeframes and creates significant value for buyers and sellers.
“The auction method continues to be an efficient and cost effective choice for buyers and sellers,” Kevin Maggiacomo, president and CEO of SVN, stated. “With SVN Auction Services, we are connecting the expertise of centuries worth of auction experience to our commercial real estate Advisors no matter what market they serve. If selling or buying at auction, our advisors’ clients deserve the expertise and experience that is readily available through our expanded auction services program.”
