ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2013) - A golf course, restaurants and a former funeral home are among approximately 250 bank-owned properties that will be sold in a series of five auctions beginning Tuesday, March 19.

"This is one of the biggest portfolios of bank-owned properties we've handled in years, with properties not only in Georgia, but also in Alabama, Florida and North Carolina. We'll have events in Americus, Tifton, Brunswick, Savannah and Atlanta," said John Dixon, president of John Dixon & Associates, which will market the properties and manage the auctions.

The series of events will begin in Americus Tuesday, March 19, with the auction of approximately 34 properties, including 10 homes, a funeral home and a golf course. Most of the properties in that sale will be in Schley, Sumter and Marion counties.

On Wednesday, the John Dixon team will move on to Tifton, where it will auction 40 properties, including 20 homes, a restaurant, four townhomes, and residential lots. Most of the properties in the Tifton event are located in Tift, Colquitt and Lowndes counties.
