Our Process

Refined & Unique

When we created The Garage Sale Luxury Auction House (TGS), we wanted to do things differently. The traditional method of buying and selling luxury real estate and homes in Canada through a broker was proving to be more challenging in the current market conditions for unique high-end properties.

Our goal was not to change the traditional real estate sales process, but rather to engage it and offer an additional method of buying and selling luxury homes and real estate through an auction event service.

We are continually fine-tuning and refining our auction process, pushing the envelope and challenging the status quo to make it better. Our process allows us to achieve sales for luxury real estate in a fixed time frame while earning a sale price that is reflective of the true market value of the property. Our finely tuned process and commitment to the business philosophy define the TGS brand based on trust, integrity, discretion and excellence.

Tailored Marketing

Diligent & Established

Truly unique properties require a specialized approach. The tailored marketing services offered by The Garage Sale Luxury Auction House elevate luxury homes and real estate to new levels through superb execution, comprehensive implementation, personalized attention, and flexible opportunities.

Diverse venues and effective marketing approaches customized to each property include compelling print advertisements in prominent publications, high production video tours and photography, visually rich brochures, customized press initiatives, polished web placements and targeted networking toward a qualified audience on the local, national and international levels.

Standard of Quality

This is a cornerstone of TGS and a requisite to trust among our clients and partners. Peace of mind underpins everything we do, from the explanation of our processes, to the strategizing of our timelines to the cultivation of our due diligence packages. We create trust in our process through our reverence for expertise, attention to detail, effortless ease and the relentless pursuit of our clients’ interests.

“I see architecture as a fusion of all the proven pieces from the past, but added to it is the availability of what we have in the present. I find it similar to movies, music, even food – always evolving with the new while respecting what has worked in the past.”

― Loren Harms, Architect

Ultimately, our offering is lifestyle. Our properties are located in lifestyle specific recreation areas in Western Canada. Location, quality, provenance and lifestyle are just a few of the essential elements of value and are as important as price to our clients.

At The Garage Sale Luxury Auction House we offer lifestyle services that enhance the experience before and after the auction. From our property tours to our Live-In Viewings, we are committed to combining internationally renowned chefs, exclusive ambiance, decors and prime settings to offer unforgettable experiences for a sophisticated and discerning clientele.

At TGS, we have always regarded luxury in the context of the experiences we provide. It’s not about excess or frivolity; but about making the most of our clients’ precious time. In the caring hands of our team of professionals, TGS clients experience this unique brand of luxury every day.

We continually strive to perfect the art of service and client experience. The luxury of the TGS experience lies in our ability to meet individual needs while exceeding expectations consistently. It’s the kind of luxury that is both memorable and timeless.
