Lamar, I just wanted to again thank you and your staff for your invaluable guidance and assistance in the sale of our property in North Palm Beach. As you know, we had a 26,000 sq. ft. commercial office building which we built in 1999 with a very nice view overlooking the waterway and Singer Island. We had it on the market for about 2 years; during which we had only two low-ball offers. The untimely passing of one of my two partners accelerated my timetable and motivation to move the property. That’s when I decided to look into auctioning. I was fortunate to be put in touch with you and the rest was a cake-walk. You and your staff handled everything. The auction process proceeded right on schedule. All bidders pre-qualified and put down reasonable deposits. When auction day came, the process was over in about 16 minutes and yielded a sale price exceeding any previous offers and was net of all fees; which the buyer was pre-committed to pay, along with an additional 1% which came back to us to reimburse the money we had put up for the advertising budget (which was a very aggressive and multimedia, national endeavor). Due to the ultimate sale price (which was 33% above the bidding floor we, on your advice, had set) our reimbursement was nearly 70% above the advertising budget. We were very pleased with our experience and I will continue to recommend Fisher Auction Co. to all whom I come in contact with who are looking to sell commercial property, minimize their personal aggravation and efforts and maximize profit.

►1.25± Development Site in the heart of West Palm Beach, FL
Congratulations on a job well done. You helped us navigate the bumps on the road we encountered, and with your expertise and judgment, you produced a final auction result that was very satisfactory. All the while, you maintained high ethical standards with regard to keeping bidders fully informed and producing further and complete due diligence materials as required to meet the needs of the bidders.
James H. Ross,
►The Former Sun Cruz Motel, Hollywood Beach, FL
You and your team are truly a class act.
From our initial meeting, to your successful sale, Fisher Auction Company exceeded my expectations on every level, including the professionalism, efficiency and cordial attitude of every member of your team. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you. My only regret is that I did not connect with Fisher Auction Company decades earlier. Had I, it would have altered much of my marketing and sales efforts during my career as a real estate entrepreneur.

► By Order of the School District of Lee County, Florida – 2 Office Facility Complexes
“The service and personal attention the School District received from Fisher Auction Company was exceptional! They are truly a high-caliber team. Their knowledge of the market and their key contacts assisted the School District in selling two buildings which had been vacant and on the market over six years. We are pleased with and would highly recommend Fisher Auction Company to any organization looking for an alternative method to the traditional selling of real estate.”

► Integrated Control Systems Inc. – 52,000± SF Facility of 4± Acres, Punta Gorda, FL
“My responsibility as an officer of the court and as a fiduciary for the family of a valued client made the use of the auction process a guarded decision, but with hindsight, it was the best thing I could have done for this Estate. I am happy I did it, and not only was the financial result greater than I anticipated; it was more than I thought possible. In fact, I had accepted a previous offer to sell this property for a million dollars less than the result produced by your auction. Needless to say, that contract did not go to closing, and I am now so glad it didn’t.”
Very truly yours,
Howard L. Crown, GRANT FRIDKIN PEARSON, P.A.
►U.S. Bankruptcy Court – Luxury Waterfront Home, Star Island, FL
The Star Island estate of embattled businessman Claudio Osorio sold for $12.7 million. “The auction went perfectly,” said attorney Geoffrey Aaronson, who is representing Claudio and his wife, Amarilis, in their personal bankruptcy case. “Maybe we should do all of the auctions by the pool on Star Island,” quipped U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert A. Mark, who approved the sale, which formally closes Nov. 22.

►Luxury Mizner Lakes Estate Home, Boca Raton, Florida
“After over 3 years of attempting to sell our home through conventional methods — including listing with high profile, well known traditional listing agents — we decided to sign up with Neil Saffer at Fisher Auction Company. Neil was not only extremely professional, responsive, and knowledgeable, but he sold our house at fair market value — just like he told us he would. I was thoroughly impressed by the top notch regional, national, and international marketing and by Neil’s level of attention to detail throughout the process. I would highly recommend Neil Saffer.”

►Nautica by the Sea – 2.89± Acre Oceanfront Development Site, Ormond Beach, FL
“We knew we had a marketable site. It just wasn’t going to be sold the traditional way since potential buyers are sitting on the sidelines waiting for the seller’s floor selling price. Going to auction removes the buyers’ uncertainty. We really appreciated how well Fisher guided the marketing and auction event and their experience helped generate a sales price that exceeded our expectations.”

►Single Family Home on Double Lot, Pompano Beach, FL
We would like to thank you and the entire team at Fisher Auction Company for the exemplary service in conducting the estate sale of our family home. As you know this was a difficult decision to sell the property that was bought & home built by our deceased parents, Arthur & Henrietta in 1950. All of your team worked in an extraordinary manner and accomplished the sale beautifully and without any glitches. The weekly emails outlining the response to the upcoming auction was most assuring that we were in professional hands. We believe it was such a successful auction due to your thorough attention to detail, careful planning, and smooth execution… Please feel to use our names for references as we would be glad to highly recommend your company to any inquirer.

“I was extremely pleased that Fisher auction was able to successfully find a pre-auction buyer for a property that was scheduled for auction. In addition to finding a buyer, the purchase price was 10% higher than the independently appraised value of the property. Lamar and his team handled the transaction professionally and efficiently. I would highly recommend Fisher auction.”

“I can’t tell you how happy I am with choosing Fisher Auction to sell my 5 acres with a log home in Naples, Florida. It is a unique location and needed the expertise marketing that you provided and the brochure was terrific. As a real estate broker I know the importance of bringing qualified buyers to the property and creating excitement for a sale.
