Our marketing and auction services, combined with our host agent’s expertise and local knowledge, forms a powerful alliance of two teams focused on one result.

A Powerful Combination

In collaboration with select agents, brokers and advisors, we offer dynamic auction models designed to answer the unique needs of your high-net-worth clientele. Our partners benefit from prominent co-branding across our marketing campaigns, generating unparalleled worldwide attention on each agent’s portfolio of assets. Together, we reach all potential clients in the marketplace.

Seller Protection

MARKETING PLATFORM

Our dynamic marketing campaign reaches all identified buyers in the global marketplace. Our professional cinematography, world-class events and multi-channeled campaigns engage the targeted buyer groups and facilitate sales within a fixed timeframe.

PROTECTED COMMISSIONS

We provide industry-leading commissions for buying and selling agents and brokers on all auctions. Our selling agents & brokers maintain the standard commission and gain access to enhanced rates based on the final sale price.

Protected Commissions

Auction Platforms

Our reserved auction model guarantees a consigned asset is not sold below a set price. The auction is marketed with a reserve in place. Although bids may be placed below the reserve, they will only be accepted at the discretion of our sellers. If requested, private negotiations between buyers, sellers and agents can be arranged prior to auction day. Owners are responsible for the marketing costs if the reserve price is not met on auction day.

Our unreserved auction model produces sales within a fixed timeframe. With no minimum and no reserve bid on auction day, the asset will be sold unconditionally to the highest bidder regardless of price. This format has proven to attract the most interest from bidders. If requested, private negotiations between buyers, sellers and agents can be arranged prior to auction day.

The multi-lot auction platform features a strategic collection of complementary, non-competing luxury assets, all auctioned on a pre-determined date. Each asset receives a custom, targeted marketing and sales campaign designed to maximize exposure and value. Our dual marketing and brand strategies broaden scope and potentially lower marketing fees for the owner(s).

TGS Benefits

AGENT PROTECTION

The Garage Sale platform provides protection for partner agents in all key areas of the sale. We only work with motivated sellers, we qualify and register every bidder, and all agents retain their relationships with their clients and listings.

SELLER PROTECTION

The versatility of our platform allows us to customize each auction sale to suit the unique needs of every client and ensure consigned assets never sell below the anticipated value.

OUR DATABASE & EVENTS

Operating since 2009, we have curated an extensive database of qualified, high-net-worth individuals who appreciate The Garage Sale’s process and the luxury assets we work with. All partner agents are exposed to our unique clientele and the networking opportunities our events provide.

EARLY PARTICIPATION

To ensure our clients have access to a full range of purchase options, early negotiation is available for buyers prior to auction day. Upon request, we also host direct negotiations between buyer, seller, agents, and advisors, in a private, tailored setting. Attractive incentives may be offered by the seller to encourage early participation.

UNCONDITIONAL SALES

We achieve unconditional sales through our world-class evaluation and certification processes. Our auction documentation ensures that any asset sold at auction can complete within thirty days. We pride ourselves on our reputation, and the certainty we provide our stakeholders. Unconditional sales are foundational to our transparent auction process.

30-DAY CLOSING SUPPORT

Our service does not stop when the gavel falls. Our thirty-day closing support program guides our sellers through every step of the transaction process, working with sellers and their representatives as needed to finalize the sale. TGS sellers and buyers become part of an exclusive group of VIP clients. We continue to offer support and assistance with all elements of our sellers’ experiences post-sale.

Host Agents

To ensure the highest level of service and performance for our clients, The Garage Sale has formed strategic partnerships with leading real estate professionals and brokers in key geographic regions. Together, we work in exclusive cooperation to provide a powerful marketing and sales platform for our the sale of luxury assets.
