IAM Sold was founded in 2009 by its current directors Ben Ridgway and Jamie Cooke, specialising in providing outsourced auctions to estate agents across the UK & Ireland, on a white label basis. We have sold over 13,000 properties and generated over £1,400,000,000 in capital value.
We enable our partners to offer an auction solution as a core service within their existing business but without taking on the extra resource and cost that normally goes along with launching a new department.
Outsourcing their auctions to IAM Sold provides our client’s with the ability to create a new revenue stream for their business and build their brand locally, all with the support of an award-winning team of auction specialists.
We provide specific on-boarding via off site training days, in branch follow ups and online training via the IAM Academy. This in-depth training process enables our partners to gain confidence in spotting opportunities where auction could be a viable solution for their client.
Once our client has spotted an opportunity there in depth training enables them to confidently discuss the benefits of auction so they are empowered to win the business and offer another solution to gain an instruction.
Now the largest independent residential auctioneer in the UK based on lots sold, (source EIG 2017) we provide auctions solutions to over 2,000 estate agency branches nationwide and 8,000 property professionals. We operate the most extensive range of auctions in the marketplace, including Public & Online Events, utilising both Traditional and Modern Method terms and conditions.
Our network of property professionals across the UK has enabled us to create a well recognised brand for auction across the UK. We paid £10,000,000 in sales fees to our partners in 2017, totalling over £30,000,000 to date.
We saw a record breaking first quarter of 2018 with 854 lots sold, and £96m total capital raised. This compares with 632 lots and £69.8m capital value for the same period in 2017. We have truly enhanced our core business and expanded our offering to include conveyancing and compliance services, bringing together all of our businesses, including IAM Sold, under the Intelligent Services Group brand.
A foundation to all of the above that will never change is the relationship we have with our partners, without them we don’t exist, and we continue to do our utmost to support them in every way possible. Our core values echo this sentiment and provides a constant reminder to our people and partners of the level of service and customer care we are committed to providing.
