In the exclusive (and expensive) world of luxury real estate, entrepreneur Laura Brady has helped pioneer a new way to buy and sell luxury homes around the globe.
Founded in 2008, Brady's company, Concierge Auctions, doesn't sell property in the traditional sense. Instead, Manhattan-based Concierge uses an auction model to handle some of the priciest real estate around.
The homes listed on Concierge Auctions are located all over the U.S. and primarily in scenic vacation destinations such as Hawaii, the Rocky Mountains (think ranches and ski homes), France, Anguilla, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. The company services 32 states and territories and 14 countries around the globe.
The typical Concierge clients are entrepreneurs, business owners, wealthy families, and some sports and entertainment figures. Buyers and sellers also come from the technology and financial sectors.
