LRG launches First for Auctions!

LRG launches First for Auctions!
4th August 2022

First for Auctions has launched! Previously separate entities through Romans Auctions and Leaders Auctions, this new offering will see a strengthening and rebranding of the auction services that are part of Leaders Romans Group (LRG). 

First for Auctions aims to be the go-to service for homeowners and estate agents looking to benefit from the ease and speed of property auctions, with the team working closely with sellers to understand the individual circumstances that make auctions the best solution.

Last year, 106 properties were sold, with a 95% sold success rate and properties have achieved an average of 25% over the guide price.

The First for Auctions specialist team is led by Daniel Gale who has been appointed Head of Auctions after joining LRG as a Sales Negotiator for Romans in 2007. Daniel then moved into the Auctions Division as an Auctions and Commercial Surveyor in early 2010 and has continued to work within this division for over 10 years, until recently taking up this newly created role.

With 15 years of experience in both residential and commercial property, he will look to utilise his industry knowledge to help grow the auctions offering throughout the country.

The new leadership team also includes Simon Clayton, a qualified member of the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers, and Auctioneer and Valuer, Gareth Bell. Both bring a wealth of experience in advising auction clients to this new brand.

Daniel Gale comments: “I am extremely grateful to be leading such an incredibly experienced team and building on the success we’ve already had. The team has continued to produce incredible results for the business and our clients, averaging a 95% success rate on properties sold.

"I am looking forward to the next chapter in my journey, starting off with expanding First for Auctions nationally. Since the pandemic, we’ve seen many people opting for online services, including prospective home buyers. And, in turn, we’ve seen a significant increase in demand from homeowners interested in selling through online auctions. The expansion of this offering comes at a time when online auctions are becoming extremely popular because of the speed and certainty it can offer.”

“We are very proud of the work we have been doing to further increase awareness of the benefits of selling through auction. Our mission is to demystify the auctions process so that where circumstances call for a more swift, efficient, and transparent sale, people looking to sell their homes benefit from the support of an experienced team who will be there every step of the process. It is a very exciting time to be part of property auctions as they grow exponentially in popularity, and I look forward to taking the First for Auctions brand national to watch that success grow.”
