Concierge Auctions has perfected the sales process for incomparable, high-end real estate. We expertly communicate each property’s unique attributes and allow buyers to name the value through a fair, transparent bidding process.
For buyers, our proposition is simple: Follow us, and be the first to know of the best luxury buying opportunities available. You evaluate what they’re worth to you, and you name the price. Period.
For sellers: We know your buyers. We know what makes them tick. We know what makes them move — literally. We expertly market your property worldwide and deliver the highest, market-driven price, so you can move on.
As a preferred auction provider to Sotheby’s International Realty® and other luxury brokerage firms, we have successfully represented properties from New York to Hawaii. Since 2008, we have sold nearly $500 million of the world’s most premier properties.
Great Minds. Great Vision. The Perfect Team.
Founder & Managing Director
Although she’s never divulged the full story, we can only assume Laura’s nickname, “Doctor,” comes from the fact that she’s wicked smart. Before Concierge, Laura led a team of real estate agents at SKY Sotheby’s International Realty in Sarasota, Fla. Not only was she personally involved in more than $100 million in sales, but other life accomplishments include testing out of college Calculus, surviving a mid-century remodel and giving birth to twins.
Wine, travel and warm sunny places? Chad’s in. Need to negotiate with him on the other side of a deal? We feel bad for you. He cut his teeth negotiating high-stakes partnerships and investments with companies such as AOL Time Warner, Palm Computing, AT&T and Yahoo while serving as the Director of Business Development at US WEST.
We have a prodigy among us. Not only does Mike drive the Concierge ship with passion and finesse, he also started writing code in the fourth grade. Mike’s career in real estate runs deep as a former VP of Cendant and early broker owner at Sotheby’s International Realty. When not leading us to success, Mike is known to flex some skills in home demolition and remodeling work.
When he’s not keeping us in good legal standing, Anthony “Nino” Capobianco dreams often of Italy and spending time with friends and family. Anthony’s career path took him from paperboy to financial consultant to one of the youngest partners at a major international law firm. Lucky for us, he ended up starting his own firm and is privileged to name Concierge Auctions as a client.
VP of Administration
After 26 years on Wall Street, Rita packed up the fast-paced life and prepared for a year off. She joined Concierge after only four months. When not working or traveling, Rita can be found channeling Pat Benatar in her favorite sing-along tune, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” Though obviously talented at management, Rita secretly dreams of becoming a marine biologist or forensic scientist and living the life in Italy.
Technical Project Manager
Jacob’s passion for travel has taken him to 16 different countries around the world. His career has driven him from running help desk support for an offshore construction company to IT to web development. Jacob values innovation and a constant shift toward something new – something we have in common.
Despite the fact that Jeff absolutely loves his job and the people of Concierge Auctions, he’s admitted that he will in fact miss a meeting for the birth of his first child. After his first gig cutting grass, Jeff went on to help small businesses with business planning, then jumped feet first into real estate where he spent a decade selling franchises for some of the top brands in the industry.
If Nick is suspiciously not present at a business meeting, you’ll likely find him at an Oregon football game. He enjoys coaching and football (in case you missed that), doesn’t appreciate being called “Leno,” and has a soft spot for a poodle named Pee Wee. He takes great pride in working at Concierge and in being able to make up his own songs in the shower.
Director of Client Services
It’s true what they say – once in real estate, always in real estate. Sarena is a testament to that. Having sold luxury real estate in Sarasota, Fla., for nine years, and now with Concierge, Sarena already knows her calling and is not afraid to say it. When she’s not working at the best place on earth, Sarena is likely practicing her bow and warrior poses in yoga.
Project Sales Manager
Despite her amazing last name, Katie “Lawless” is anything but criminal. In fact, Katie’s passion for kids and charity work led her to be part of a team in college that raised $1.2 million for Children’s Miracle Network. Her love of travel and awesome people led her to Concierge Auctions after a stint working on a Lifetime Television Network show. (She won’t tell us which one.)
Project Sales Manager
Bryan “Gumbo” Warga brings over 30 years of sales experience to Concierge. Although the jury is still out on what he wants to be when he grows up, Bryan is clear on three things: family is important, business is in his blood and Ventura Highway is hands down the best song to sing in the shower.
When Christine “the Boss” Boss isn’t busy managing projects, she’s probably perfecting her swing on the golf course. She’s got chops not only from her years playing golf in college, but also as a national and local Account Executive for Clear Channel. She’s most likely to stop and take in the pictures of the amazing properties we get to work with.
Despite his moniker, Adam “AB” Bradshaw is not the king of A/B testing. Rather, he’s a 15-year golf industry veteran who’s now loving work in the real estate industry. If you really want to get Adam’s attention, ask him to discuss a few characters from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
VP of Client Services
Mario is a people person and he likes a good challenge almost as much as he likes Thanksgiving and football. As a man with many lives, he was perplexed when we asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. He’s into music, wall painting (well, mostly just peeling off the blue tape when it’s all done) and loving his job.
Project Sales Manager
Erin “the Extender” Struxness isn’t shy about her love for Justin Beiber. The Beibs complements her passionate spirit. With a background in sales and over 18 years in real estate, Erin’s passion and experience certainly brightens our world.
Our dear Jessica was once part of the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. So what if it was as the mascot? That’s still one of the coolest past gigs under the Concierge team’s belt. “Jblock” is super creative. When she’s not rocking pixels for us at Concierge, she enjoys printmaking, refinishing old furniture and creating fine art.
Marketing & Events Coordinator
Still traumatized from a few times working at Parker School Uniforms when she had to tell a mom that her child needed the husky size, Katie thankfully doesn’t let it affect her work. She’s still on the lookout for her first home, loves the people she works with and hesitates to tell us that she’s a natural blonde.
Since Miguel is an amazing pixel pusher, we were not surprised to find out he’s also good with wood work. He comes from the ad agency world, answers to “Q”, and loves a good family vacation.
Project Sales Manager
Nevermind her friendly face, Carolyn has serious street cred having worked for a number of celebrities, from rappers to movie stars, in her days before joining us. Her thirst for adventure is probably also what spurred her career in luxury hotel management and real estate. The thrill of meeting new faces and building new relationships with every new project is what drew Carolyn to Concierge Auctions.
Director of Marketing
Krystal always gets the final word – as in, we trust her wordsmithing more than most. Her experience as a business magazine editor and also as a restaurateur also makes us trust her taste. She’s all in with all that she does – even when that means whipping up an apple pie at a moment’s notice.
Social Media Manager
Here’s a little tip: don’t ever get fooled into playing a game of high-stakes poker with Keith. He’ll clean the table with you and everyone else. And if you don’t know Spanish, he may make jokes about it right in front of you. Keith’s got a sharp pen as well, having written his fair share of papers and blogs. That’s why he thrives on our social media front lines.
A love of travel, new experiences and natural landscapes of mountains and ocean made Daniele’s decision to join Concierge easy. She’s worked in real estate auctions for six years and is still 100% engaged in the industry. When she’s not happy at work, she’s likely heading to England or Montana.
Director of Client Services
We’re not sure which is more adventurous – William’s love for Jamaica or the fact that he indeed took on a full home construction project and lived to talk about it. William’s a solid starter. He founded his first official corporation in Atlanta in 1983, his second in 2008, which he sold in 2010. What’s lucky number three William?
As a testament to his true auctioneer colors, Frank indeed recites auction bids in the shower. Anybody bid $10 million? You may not know that Frankie T. Terminator walked away from a music career. Whatever the reason, we’re happy he’s here. Auctioneers are rock stars in our book.
Charlie’s a true Renaissance man. No really. He paints and even once sold a picture for actual money. Lucky for us, he also likes to advise clients. Prior to starting his own advisory business, Charlie was a Lloyds of London underwriter and ran small and medium-sized companies with Foxtons and Sotheby’s International Realty. If he misses your meeting, you’ll know he got a better offer.
