THE most successful property auction business in Wales is looking to expand further with key appointments as it reveals impressive growth figures.
The Newport-based property auction house emerged as number one in the national auction league after selling 401 properties out of 553 offered at a total value of £26.8m at nine auctions last year registering 72.5% sales of lots offered.
This was the eleventh year in a row the Paul Fosh Auctions achieved the premier position for the number and value of properties it sold in Wales.
The property auctions business had a 25% share of the entire number of properties sold at auction in Wales. The Newport firm’s closest competitor sold just 143 lots for £13 million.

We need people who share our vision so we can move on to the next level with the business.
“Paul Fosh Auctions goes from strength to strength and we really need to have the right people in these key positions to assist in our growth. People who have the right core values of honesty and integrity are our target. It’s these values which we all work very hard to maintain in the business.

If you think you’re the person we’re looking for and want to be part of the most successful property auction business in Wales give me a call or drop me a line.”
