“We are pleased that GoIndustry DoveBid has received this prestigious honor recognizing the unprecedented growth we are experiencing in our South African property division,” said Kim Faclier, Liquidity Services’ Head of Property of GoIndustry DoveBid South Africa. “Over the past 18 months, we have worked incredibly hard to build a strong team of outstanding professionals who have sold more than R700 million in real estate, effectively changing the landscape for property transactions in South Africa. By utilizing our proprietary, in-house online auction technology, we have successfully opened up access for each individual sale to a highly-targeted and relevant audience of international bidders. This competitive process has not only increased asset sale price, but it has also delivered a generous return on investment for our clients. “Not only are we able to offer on-line sales via the portal, but also live ballroom style multiple property auctions as well as on-site for individual properties”, continued Faclier.
