Bond Wolfe Auctions has hit 100+ lots for its first auction in March which will be the largest auction held in the Midlands for six months.

It will feature a diverse range of properties with guide prices ranging from £5,000 to £2.6 million and cover a wide geographical area including London.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “The West Midlands auction market has voted with its feet.

“We are delighted that so many old and new clients have chosen to put their faith in us and committed to our first of six auctions this year.

“We have seen lots of early interest in this auction with over 1,000 viewings having already taken place. We look forward to welcoming a lot of familiar faces to Villa Park on Wednesday 13 March.”

As well as regular auctioneer Graham Carter, Bond Wolfe Auctions will also be welcoming one of the UK’s best known auctioneers on to the rostrum.

Phillip Arnold, who is the past president of the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA) and an experienced London-based auctioneer, will be taking up the hammer to sell many of the 100+ lots on the day.

Gurpreet Bassi said: “We are delighted Phillip has chosen to join us as his familiar face and distinctive style is well known in the national auction marketplace, particularly as we are now seeing so many buyers from London and the south east.”

Bond Wolfe Auctions was launched in early 2019 by chief executive Gurpreet Bassi and managing director Ian Tudor who previously were the heads of residential and commercial auctions respectively at the Bigwood auctions business.

They have been joined by well-known consultant directors Jonathan Hackett and Ron Darlington to complete an initial team of 15 working from offices in Birmingham, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.

Gurpreet Bassi added: “Reaching 100 plus lots for our first auction under Bond Wolfe Auctions is a remarkable achievement by any measure, it can largely be put down to the quality and experience of our team.

“Our award-winning and record-breaking team has over 250 years’ experience of the property auction sector and our track record together with our established business network is unrivalled.

“That’s why we have been able to create such a successful business from day one.”

Gurpreet and Ian previously formed the backbone of the Bigwood auctions business, and the majority of the new Bond Wolfe Auctions team were formerly responsible for delivering the Midlands largest ever auction in May 2018, which saw 172 lots go under the hammer.

The first auction will start at 10.30am on Wednesday 13 March at Villa Park, Birmingham, and the team has already started taking entries for the second auction of 2019 on Thursday 9 May. Any sellers or businesses looking to offer their properties, development sites or portfolios for sale by auction, should contact or call 0121 312 1212.
