Go-Dove re-appointed to auction Telkom properties

Go-Dove has been re-appointed to dispose of properties around South Africa on behalf of Telkom.

Kim Faclier, Managing Director of Property for Go-Dove SA (Pty) Ltd, says it’s an honour to be re-appointed by Telkom to again assist in disposing of the telecommunications parastatal’s numerous properties, through live and on-line auctions.

In March more than R130 million worth of properties were sold by public auction in Cape Town, Gauteng and Bloemfontein, by Go-Dove’s lead auctioneer, Joey Burke.

“More than 24 000 page views took place on the Go-Dove website, with more than 2 145 bids placed over a 24 hour period,” says Faclier.

“The Go-Dove back-end system allows full tracking capabilities of the entire bidding history from registration right through to the end of the sale, all in real time. The system provides the transparency, corporate governance and full audit capabilities that Go-Dove’s large corporate, parastatal and government client base require.

“Recently, Go-Dove’s proprietary-owned software, provided two additional successful on-line auctions. Another 25 properties were sold, and for this auction more than 894 bids were placed through the on-line system, with 72 registered bidders and 14 640 page views.”

Go-Dove is part of global giant, Liquidity Services, Inc (NASDAQ: LQDT), a leading provider of asset management and real estate services with 40 offices in 27 countries. Most of its international clients are Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies. Faclier says the company also has BEE Level 1 status.

In addition to Telkom, some of Go-Dove’s clients through Africa include Transnet, Eskom, Aspen, BHP Billiton, Sappi, xStrata, PG Bison, Group 5, Benicon, City of Cape Town as well as Absa, Standard Bank, and Nedbank.
